“Express Yourself” Madonna With Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”

At a recent rehearsal in Israel, Madonna was caught on tape mashing up her song “Express Yourself” and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.” She even used the sound a revving motorcycle, which is a trademark sound for Gaga.

Madonna flipped back and forth between the songs, bringing more attention to the fact that the songs sound very familiar. She ended the mashup with a drum heavy remix of “Express Yourself” and chanted a chorus of “Respect yourself … she’s not me.

Lady Gaga makes it a point to try and distance herself from the Madonna comparison and even reportedly went as far as firing her choreographer/creative director over making a verbal comparison of the two.

Madonna, on the other hand, likes pushing the envelope and brings it up often. In an interview with Newsweek, Madonna compared Express Yourself to Born This Way” saying “I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song. I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was . . . interesting.”
