“I’ve worked hard towards this moment, and I think it’s an important message to tell my fans: even if you’re going through a dark time… don’t ever give up. You can always make your way back to the other end of that circle and find your happiness again.”  
Madonna on Lady Gaga: “At the end of the day, we’re very different”


In leaked tour-rehearsal footage, Madonna is shown to be set to perform a mash-up of her songs ‘Express Yourself’ and ‘She’s Not Me’ with excerpts of Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’. Some critics have stated that ‘EY’ and ‘BTW’ sound alike, with Gaga claiming in an interview with NME that the idea is “retarded”, whereas Madonna has been quoted to call Gaga’s song “interesting”.

Born This Way begins at 1:09, She’s Not Me begins at 1:58.

'I heard from people connected to the show that the reason that her skit with Madonna fell so flat was that Madonna was supposed to sing before Lady Gaga did.  Instead, she just kept dancing, leaving Lady G to start her vocals in the middle of the song.  Whether Madonna missed her cue or intentionally left Gaga hanging is anyone's guess, but it seemed to throw off the whole skit, which, you have to admit, was pretty awkwardt to begin with.  Considering what she had to work with, I think Lady Gaga's performance on SNL was fabulous—especially her second musical number, which absolutely blew everyone away.’ (via sandstress)
