Ever since Lady Gaga‘s hit “Born This Way” hit the airwaves all listeners could do was compare it to Madonna‘s “Express Yourself.”
Now the 53-year-old singer is breaking her silence about the comparison in a new interview with ‘20/20.’
In the interview Madonna admits that “When I heard it on the radio …I said that sounds very familiar.”
“I certainly think she references me a lot in her work. And sometimes I think it’s amusing and flattering and well done,” she said.
Asked in the interview if she was annoyed by Gaga referencing her musical style Madonna said, “There’s a lot of ways to look at it. I can’t really be annoyed by it… because, obviously, I’ve influenced her.”
