Madonna Calls Lady Gaga's Work "Reductive", Passive-Aggressively Sips Tea

It's been said by virtually everyone but Madonna herself so I guess it's about time Madonna was asked if she feels Lady Gaga is copying her.


In an interview with Cynthia McFadden, Madonna answered, "I certainly think she references me a lot in her work. Sometimes I think it's amusing and flattering and well-done. Obviously, I've influenced her."

This conversation of course quickly evolved into a slightly passive-aggressive, "It feels reductive....Look it up" series of comments, as if she were trying to tell us, "If you don't know what reductive means or you don't own a dictionary, you may never know that I am insulting Lady Gaga. Mwahahaha."



Actual conversation aka why I love my husband

Me: I'm not saying she's wrong, perse, but Madonna is just so annoying.

Monsieur: Seriously, it's like, you're hugely influential, you might be a little more gracious about it.

Me: I will say, I think Lady Gaga is doing much more with fashion than Madonna ever did.

Monsieur: Oh definitely. Madonna only knew how to shock, Lady Gaga has some thought behind it.
