Gaga for Madonna? "Born This Way" is alarmingly familiar as Lady Copycat is born
It's not that it's not epic, or that it doesn't pound home her message of embracing individuality or make use of her power vocals. It's that — as people have pointed out on Twitter in droves — it's strikingly similar to Madonna's "Express Yourself."
Writes Houston-based OswaldoGtz: "Born this way = I don't have an original bone in my body! Lady Gaga #FAIL"
L.A. Times calls it a "freak anthem" and the perfect excuse to shed inhibitions on the dance floor while guiltlessly succumbing to a morally righteous chorus.
But we want to know what you all think. Do you like the song? Does it sound too much like Madonna? Do you care?
