Continuing Lady Gaga's NME mag tirade, the pop singer says "Born This Way" is not a ripoff of Madonna's "Express Yourself."
"That's retarded," she said. "If you put the songs next to each other, side by side, the only similarities are the chord progression. It's the same one that's been in disco music for the last 50 years. Just because I'm the first fucking artist in 25 years to think of putting it on Top 40 radio, it doesn't mean I'm a plagiarist, it means I'm fucking smart. Sorry."
