Did Lady Gaga just throw shade at Madonna?

We hope Madonna has a good pair of sunnies because it looks like Lady Gaga has just thrown some severe shade her way.

The Just Dance singer dropped by Beats 1 radio station yesterday to have a chat with host, Zane Lowe about her most recent album, Joanne. And when Lowe compared her to the well-established and controversial Madonna, Gaga was having none of it.


“Madonna and I are very different. Just saying. We’re very different,” she said. “I wouldn’t make that comparison at all, and I don’t mean to disrespect Madonna. She’s a nice lady and she’s had a fantastic huge career… biggest pop star of all time. But I play a lot of instruments. I write all my own music. I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I’m a producer. I’m a writer. What I do is different.”

Gaga then went on to say that she wasn’t “just rehearsing over and over again to put on a show” and that there’s spontaneity in her work. She said she allows herself to fail, break and that she’s not afraid of her flaws.

Yikes! And that’s not all she had to say…

“There are major differences between me and her and I don’t mean that in a disrespectful way,” she admitted. “I just will not be compared to anyone anymore. I am who the f*ck I am, and this is me. My life story is my life story, just like yours is.”

We get it’s annoying being compared to others, but that shade really can’t be denied. Either way, we love both stars and refuse to take sides.
