Skincare and music mogul Madonna just reignited her age-old feud with Lady Gaga and took the A Star Is Born actor'sown words and used them against her. The diss was truly savage, and it might take Gaga some time to recover, you know, when she's not busy counting her $300 million.
These two genius artists have history, and while it's sad to see them disagree about whether or not Lady Gaga and her music are "reductive" copy cats and if Madonna should say how she really feels directly to Gaga's face, it is the way it is.
If you haven't been on the Internet lately or following Mother Monster, you might have missed that she literally can't stop saying the "there can be 100 people in a room and 99 of them don’t believe in you, but all it takes is one and it just changes your whole life" quote about Bradley Cooper and her ASIB casting. The quote has become fodder for the best memes this fall and this truly hilarious video.
Enter Madonna, who thinks this is just another example of Gaga allegedly ripping her off. Because Madonna has a don't-F-with-me attitude, she took to Instagram to shade Gaga, kind of like how Gaga asked her not to do in the first place. Fun!
On Monday, Madonna posted a vintage video from the '80s on her Instagram Story of her saying, "If there are 100 people in a room and 99 say they liked it, I only remember the one person who didn't."

Now, I'm no historian, but it sounds like Gaga and Madonna are talking about two totally different things. Madonna is talking about getting hung up on the critics and likely wanting to prove them wrong while Gaga is talking about how B. Coop took a chance on her, legit changing her life. You could also probably take any quote, add the 100-99 quality to it, and it would immediately sound similar.
Take, for instance, model/dancer Dita Von Teese's famous peach quote. She always says, "You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there's still going to be somebody who hates peaches." I mean, you could legit just flip it around and say, "There could be 100 people in a room who love juicy peaches, but there's always going to be one who doesn't." Does that also make Dita a Madonna copy cat?
To be fair to Madonna, there are some people who agree with her. One fan wrote, "For all the 11-year-old Gaga fans, just google 'Single White Female,' then you'll understand why Madonna is likely upset."
This might have caused quite the debate online, but Lady Gaga doesn't seem to have noticed, and Madonna truly does not care because she also posted a picture of her all up in the camera and wrote, "Don't F*^k with me Monday."
Guess that's the end of that. For now.
