Lady Gaga's New Single 'Born This Way' Is Good, Even If It's Practically A Cover Of Madonna's 'Express Yourself!'

Gaga’s back & more Madonna-y than ever! I think ‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race’ has a new theme song!

2010 was the year of ‘uplifting’ songs targeted at the world’s downtrodden souls — see Katy Perry‘s “Firework,” Ke$ha‘s “We R Who We R” and Pink‘s “Raise Your Glass” — but it’s 2011 now, and Lady Gaga has reemerged to blow them all out of the water. But does she? Her highly-anticipated new single “Born This Way” dropped Feb. 11, and even if you consider yourself a Little Monster, you can’t help but draw a comparison to Madonna‘s 1989 single “Express Yourself.”

Listen to “Born This Way” and “Express Yourself” below, and tell us what’s on your mind:

Born This Way and Express Yourself are COMPLETELY different songs! The messages are completely different. Born This Way is about self expression, self determination, self confidence in who you are. Express Yourself is about making your lover express his feelings for you. COMPLETELY different!!
