Lady Gaga's Born This Way: Rip-Off Of Madonna And SNSD?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Gaga`s most recent single, `Born This Way,` drew criticism when it was first released for sounding strikingly similar to Madonna`s `Express Yourself.` Now the pop star is coming under fire again for her sound-alike song.

Sources allege that Gaga`s song sounds so much like a song by nine-member South Korean girl group SNSD that it may have been plagiarized. Fans of the Seoul-based band are claiming that Gaga ripped off major sections of `Be Happy,` a song from SNSD`s 2010 album `Oh!`" Read More


Lady Gaga is often praised for her originality and creativity, and I must admit that nobody else would dare wear an outfit made out of condoms or a dress made from raw meat.

Lady Gaga is an original when it comes to making a fashion statement, but as a singer she is a shameless copycat. Lady Gaga`s "Born This Way" is a blatant rip-off of Madonna`s "Express Yourself." If Lady Gaga had a smidgen of integrity she would give all the royalties from "Born This Way" to the Material Girl.

Lady Gaga should learn how to express herself, and not channel the one and only Madonna.

Did the shameless diva copy Madonna and the Korean girl group? If Gaga`s next album contains any copycat songs, her CD`s should be set on fire.

Girlfriend, don`t you realize that in the Internet age it`s impossible to get away with such a transparent theft?

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but girlfriend at least gives props to Madonna and SNSD!

Monsters, it may be time to kick Lady Gaga to the curb!

Compare the two songs, make up your own mind:
