Madonna takes dig at Lady Gaga at `M.D.N.A` tour

New York: Madonna insulted Lady Gaga this weekend by pointing out from the stage of her ‘M.D.N.A.’ tour that Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ sounds a lot like Madonna’s ‘Express Yourself’.

As Madonna kicked off her highly-anticipated world tour in Israel this weekend, the ‘Material Girl’ was filmed rehearsing her 1989 hit ‘Express Yourself’.

Midway through the performance, a dress rehearsal for the show, the 53-year-old singer began singing ‘Born This Way’, mashing up the Lady Gaga song with her own.

The mash-up did not appear to be a tribute to Gaga, as Madonna has criticized her in the past for creating a song so similar to her classic.

“When I heard ‘Born This Way’ on the radio, I said that sounds very familiar. It feels reductive,” the New York Post quoted Madonna as telling 20/20 earlier this year.

“I certainly think she references me a lot in her work. Sometimes I think it’s amusing and flattering and well done. It’s a statement about taking something that was in the zeitgeist, you know, 20 years ago and turning it inside out and reinterpreting it.

“There’s a lot of ways to look at it. I can’t really be annoyed by it because, obviously, I’ve influenced her,” she had said.
