Despite reports that Gaga’s new single copies Madonna, the pop star says the Material Girl has no problem with it!
While many may think that Lady Gaga‘s new single “Born This Way” is a carbon copy of Madonna‘s “Express Yourself,” there is one very important person who has thrown their support behind the single — the Material Girl herself! Lady Gaga stopped by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Feb. 14 and said, “Well the good news is I got an email from her people sending me their love and support on behalf of the single. And if the queen says it shall be, then it shall be!”
Gaga also went on to proclaim her love for the Queen of Pop, who is clearly her biggest influence. “I am the hugest fan, personally and professionally,” she told Jay.
She also has found inspiration in a much younger singer — Willow Smith! “I told her that she inspired me to whip my hair back and forth on stage,” Gaga explained.
