It started last week when we premiered the new Lady Gaga song, "Born This Way," to you on the Power Morning Playhouse. I thought I'd heard the song before... Yes! I heard it back in the day but it was called "Express Yourself" by Madonna. And did you notice Friday as the song premiered, #Bornthiswayfriday stopped trending on Twitter. But guess what else began trending? None other than a ton of "Express Yourself" and that was no doubt in response to the similarities between Gaga's new track and Madonna's classic song.
We all know Lady Gaga is kind of like Madonna 2.0. At least I think she's modeling her career after Madonna's. And that's no slight to Gaga. I'm actually a HUGE fan of Gaga. But I just expected her to change it up a little this time around. So far, she seems to be sticking with the Madonna route with her career, you know -- do something shocking, make a song about being confident about who you are, etc. I can't wait to hear her entire next album. "Born This Way" isn't enough for my appetite but I'll deal.
Then Sunday night, we watch the Grammy Awards. Arriving in the egg was totally original. She's nuts, she took it there, Gaga's creative and I love it!
But then on stage, Gaga was back to channeling Madge. Tell me the high ponytail and dance move doesn't remind you of Madonna!?
I think Gaga was having some "Blonde Ambition" at the Grammys... How can an artist shock us anymore and keep it fresh? Can you think of an artist who does?
