Los Angeles: Lady Gaga has opened up about accusations she ripped off Madonna`s `Express Yourself` in her new single Born `This Way`, saying that she has received the Queen of Pop`s "complete support" over the track.

The 24-year-old singer sparked controversy after the Friday release of her highly-anticipated track, which she hailed as an anthem for a new generation.

Fans and online critics pointed out the track is almost identical to Madonna`s 1989 classic.

In an interview with US chat show host Jay Leno, the Grammy winning singer insisted the Material Girl has no issue with her song and so neither should anybody else, reported E! online.

"There is really no one that is a more adoring and loving Madonna fan than me. I am the hugest fan personally and professionally.

"Well, the good news is that I got an email from her people and her, sending me their love and complete support on behalf of the single and if the queen says it shall be, then it shall be," said Gaga.
