Check out Ariana Grande’s mash-up video of Madonna’s ‘Express Yourself’ and Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way!’

What happens when the sounds of two iconic female pop singers collide? A mash-up of epic proportions! Listen to Madonna meets Lady Gaga in Ariana Grande‘s mash-up!

Lady Gaga received a lot of criticism for her new single for sounding too much like Madonna’s ‘Express Yourself,’ but when the songs are blended together they sound like melodic genius. Based on how well this mash-up flows, we think Madonna and Lady Gaga should collaborate on the next big dance anthem!

When Ariana is not on set of Nickelodeon’s hit show Vicotrious, she is writing and recording her own music. She decided to do a mash-up of these hit singles not only because she’s a fan of these legendary lyrical ladie, but also because she was inspired by the messages of the songs.

“Both of these songs resonate with me musically, lyrically, and inspire me to bring my own sound into it. The messages in both of these songs are incredibly empowering and I wanted to share them with the girls and boys who look up to me,” Ariana said.

Nice to hear a young actress with her head on straight! Tell us what YOU think about the mash-up!

I, Ron, am perplexed. Ariana Grande and her brother, Frankie, are supposed to be working on the wedding for Miranda Cosgrove and I, Ron. I do not see any progress. Instead, Ariana is just playing around making beautiful music, and looking lovely. As if she has not a care in the world. Except, maybe, maintaining her celebrity friendship with Ke$ha. Sometimes, I feel as if I am missing something. I am not.

I saw a story by Frankie Grande, about an experience he had in Africa. I thought the story was amazing. Alone, in a dangerous place, he expressed who he was, with all his love, and it was returned, beyond measure. I have been thinking about Frankie, a lot lately, and that story. Because Frankie seems to have no place in his heart for hatred. He shares that quality with Ariana, and it is beautiful. And expressed so well in Ariana’s “Express Way” video.

This week, I had to think about Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church, again. The last time I had to think about them was when they were here, at the restaurant where Pamela Hartman and Jeanne Kerechanin were employed before they died in a car accident. I stood with their friends, and watched the hatred expressed by the members of the Church, because Pam and Jeanne were lesbians. I was puzzled. Still am.

But only about details concerning how bad ideas originate. Fred Phelps fought really hard against racial discrimination in Kansas, when no one else would. He risked his life for racial equality. His daughter alternated between working for prisoners, and spreading hatred, until she resigned to represent him at the Supreme Court. I imagine I could say “Love is like that,” but it is not. Love never hates. Love has no choice.

I repeat that last sentence to my wife, Miranda, frequently. She likes it when I say that. Really. She thinks it a form of erotic poetry. Me, too. And in Miranda Cosgrove’s “Dancing Crazy” video, since everyone dances as they desire, all kinds of fun things are possible. For example, I can tap dance a belated “Happy Birthday” to Rihanna. Or let Ariana Grande , by some wicked moves , know that I love everything she is doing, and send my love to her and Frankie.

Joy to you, Rose.
