Madonna Reveals That Lady Gaga Turned Down The Opportunity To Work With Her

Madonna revealed to a crowd in St. Paul, Minnesota that Lady Gaga turned down her offer to sing onstage with the “Material Girl” singer.

Speaking to her fans, she stated, “I invited her onstage to sing with me. But, she turned me down. It’s okay. I’ve been rejected before. It builds a little character.”

She then added, “I have the best fans in the whole world. So take that, Lady Gaga!”

Gaga and Madonna have had a rather tempestuous relationship over the last few months with the elder stateswoman of pop even accusing the “Born This Way” starlet of mimicking her earlier this year. At a show in Atlantic City in September, Madonna decided to dedicate her song “Masterpiece” to Gaga saying, “I love her. I love her. I do love her. Imitation is the highest form of flattery.”

The former Mrs. Guy Ritchie has also stated that Gaga’s “Born This Way” bares an incredible resemblance to her 1989 smash hit “Express Yourself.” On her tour she has always used the opportunity to mash the two songs together and then even played a track entitled, “She’s Not Me,” to really ram the point home.

Madonna is currently coming to the end of her North American tour with her last scheduled performance in the country coming on November 20 in Miami after which she will head to South America for a string of dates.

It’s also been revealed that Madonna is officially the biggest-selling female artist in UK chart history, having sold over 17.8 million records since 1984’s Holiday.
