“Its sad that society has come to this. She was not fat before, but now that she is slimmer, you still want to criticize and insult her. That is a normal healthy looking woman. I would love to see how your body loks in a bikini, and I bet it doesn't look as good as hers. Gaga has trainers and she will lose more weight in time for music videos, but you? You're probably a bitter person wih a way worse body and you're lashing out over the computer because why? This doesn't hurt Gaga, shes still rich and making millions. Does it help you feel better about your own life?...”

“thats all objective, just bc you dont like her music doesnt mean others dont enjoy it, and others must bc she is the most downloaded artist in history and btw album was he fastest selling album in history. and everything she says isnt a lie. shes completely truthful about everything, from her use of cannabis to her past as a burlesque dancer. what is the point of being so rude? dnt you have manners.”

Btw, what's so edgy about burlesque and cannabis ? Half of the world and their dogs do that ? Hello ?”

“but gaga isnt playing the victim...and neither am i...the facts ARE, madonna is bashing gaga at every turn like she cant think of anyhting else to do! its not neccessary and it breeds negativity! shes feeding the negative attitude to her fans and then they go out into the world being catty and bitchy and bashing each other! its not right she needs to act her age and be graceful, if shes the "queen" she wouldnt need to lower herself to catcalling someone who only has good things to say about her! gaga even told he rlittle monsters "dont shade madonna, seriously" on her website. she has no problem with madge, but SHE is a horrible old crone who won't leave her be. it has nothign to do with who agrees with her. and gaga does bash her critics, and madonna isnt a critic, shes just a mean spirited person. gaga wouildnt be the first perosn madonna has be pissy too for one reaosn or another--shes jus tnot a good perosn, shes a bad egg and ppl love to watch her be mean, we need to unite and love each other. gaga says nice things about madonna all the time, but i wouldn't blame her for not going to a madonna show--the woman is using her to get famous again and goign to her show would only be feeding into her scheme. gaga is above that, and youd never catch her calling someone names.”

“bottom line madonna cant sing and co-wrote is not the same as wholly wrote, lady gaga writes her songs and every idea comes form her. as for singing, she is no britney spears. the fact that anyone would say that means they havent heard britney OR gaga live. ur making asses or urselves.”

AndrewHarland1 on Sep 20, 2012 at 22:51:51

“Umm Lady GaGa co writes most of her songs just like Madonna did. So no it doesn't come just from her. Would she mention"Red One" in hers songs if it did? Don't think so.”

Arckangel on Sep 18, 2012 at 02:16:36

“M has been letting others write some more of her lyrics lately ('Hard Candy' & 'MDNA' albums) but she still writes most of those lyrics. For instance, her song 'Masterpiece', available on the 'W.E.' soundtrack and 'MDNA' won a Golden Globe this year and Madonna confirmed several times she truly did write it. She said she wrote it with divine inspiration.

'Devil Wouldn't Recognize You' and 'Voices' from 'Hard Candy' are two of her bestest tracks lyric-wise and M truly did write them years before Justin Timberlake got involved, so please check your facts. And Madonna's a very flexible and trained dancer, yogi, a ballerina and an athlete! She's had acting lessons too and starred in over 20 movies. M also authored several best-sellers.”

Arckangel on Sep 18, 2012 at 02:04:50

“Check your facts again! Lady Gaga is credited for CO-writing and CO-producing her songs, just like Madonna. Please check their official album liners or Wikipedia album/single articles before making assumptions. Madonna's been singing professionally for 3 decades, had training, and can go beyond 3 octaves.

I'm a Lady Gaga fan. I saw her in concert 3 times and have all her albums at home. I'm not shading her. That being said... I've been following Madonna's career for 2 decades now and I can tell you she really does write her songs! M wrote 5 songs out of 8 all by herself on her first album! She co-wrote about 5 songs on 'Like A Virgin'.

As of 'True Blue', she'd co-write & co-produce every single song. Some songs are demos Madonna receives. 'Live To Tell' is one of them. Patrick Leonard wrote the music and Madonna wrote ALL the lyrics. Madonna also contributes to melodies, harmonies and music of different songs. 'Oh Father' is one of them.

Yes, there are songs Madonna was credited for that were mostly written by others such as 'Ray Of Light', 'Heartbeat', 'Justify My Love', 'Girl Gone Wild', 'Revolver' etc. but she still wrote most of the lyrics of her catalog. Most lyrics on most of her albums such as 'True Blue', 'Like A Prayer', 'Erotica', 'Bedtime Stories' 'Ray Of Light', 'Music', 'American Life' & 'Confessions On A Dance Floor' truly do come from her.”

“the album was number one of the yr...? but it wasnt ont he charts longer than eithe radeles, katys or gagas...? youre crazy.”

“Thats tit for tat. Madonna's immaculate collection is not only one of the highest selling albums of all time but also one that was on the UK charts for a record time, at number 1 for 9 weeks, and was only ever broken by Adele last year with 21 after an amazing 21 years, funnily enough, of being the longest time a record has been at number on on the album chart. You have to remember that Madonna was doing just as well as those girls you mentioned when she was their age and is still doing damn terrific now for someone who has been in the game so long.”

beckisevil on Sep 18, 2012 at 15:47:19

“I said it went # 1. I didn't say it was #1 album of the year. I said right after that it was the 12th biggest selling album of the year so far.  Adele will probably be the #1 album of the year.”

“There's a difference between bullying and speaking the truth and the obvious truth of my words above definitely set you off, seeing your comment only deflects the the truth. Gaga did provoke this feud, along with her record company and her creative director (who admitted to ripping of Madonna constantly). Gaga knows bullying very well, while playing the victim. And she knows petty, insecure people will buy into this...and only petty, insecure people.”

“i dont know WHERE you heard that, but actually gaga moved her venues to BIGGER stadiums, she said so on her twitter and i MYSELF know bc i have friends who have gone to the BTWball. stop being a bully. grow up.”

“Still, Madonna is still selling out stadiums this long after her debut. That counts for something. Only time will tell if GaGa can do the same.”

“French news agency LE PARISIEN reporting Lady Gaga canceling her show at the Charles Erhmann stadium and moving into the Palais Nikaia, which has 9,000 seats: http://www.leparisien.fr/flash-actualite-culture/lady-gaga-ajoute-une-troisieme-date-a-sa-tournee-en-france-13-09-2012-2163082.php

Late August, Madonna played in that stadium for 30,000 people in Nice. Gaga had to move out for not selling enogh tickets. She went to a 9,000 seat theater.

Novinite, a Bulgarian news agency reporting Lady Gaga changing venues in Sofia, Bulgaria, from the National Stadium to a "sports hall": http://www.novinite.com/view_news.php?id=141338

Last time Madonna played at the National Stadium (where Gaga was forced to move out), Madonna had 55,000 people in the audience.”

PDLM on Sep 19, 2012 at 02:28:30

“Before I tell you to grow up, let me give you LINKS to serious NEWS websites that reported the facts I stated:

LE PARISIEN: http://www.leparisien.fr/flash-actualite-culture/lady-gaga-ajoute-une-troisieme-date-a-sa-tournee-en-france-13-09-2012-2163082.php

There you will find the French newsmedia reporting that Lady Gaga's concert in Nice was downgraded from the Charles Ehrmann stadium (same one Madonna played for 30,000 people in late August) to a small arena, the Palais Nikaia, which has 9,000 seats.

Remember, that's not a blog, that's a newspaper, and they were reporting an official statement by Live Nation. Madonna just plaeyd for 30,000 people there.

Another link for the Sofia show from Noivite, a Bulgarian news agency:

As reported by the Bulgarian news agency "Novinite", the Gaga concert scheduled to be played at their National Stadium was moved into a "sports hall". They didn't even ask for a ticket exchange due to the venues exchange because Gaga had sold less tickets than the 15,000 people venue can hold. While the stadium holds over 50,000. Last time Madonna played at the National Stadium (where Gaga was forced to move out), Madonna had 55,000 people in the audience.

So, now, let's get back to YOU. Before telling me to grow up, and lying about Lady Gaga and her failing tour, you should provide references, and by that, I mean no wikipedia, no blogs, but real news agencies, just like the ones I provided.”

“success is not all about legacy. when madonna passes away she'll leave behind a legacy. she should think about whether she wants to leave behind oone of great music, or one opf bashing a younger artist who does nothing but adore her. things are not looking good for her, and shes making her fans into bitter catty ppl too. thats not a good influence.”

AndrewHarland1 on Sep 21, 2012 at 09:53:17

“But she doesn't adore her enough to ever talk about how great Madonna has been in her career, unlike Madonna who even damn well said Lady GaGa was special on Graham Norton and took Lourdes to one of her shows. I wonder how many Madonna shows Lady GaGa has graced us with her presence at? Thats right, none. Madonna never said anything bad about Lady GaGa at all. All she is admitting is that Born This Way is like Express Yourself and people like you and the media are labelling that as "bashing"? Meanwhile in the land of narcissism Lady GaGa pretentiously goes around shouting on twitter about every little negative thing the media says about her. Newsflash. Just because people have criticisms of you doesn't mean they are "bullying" you. Stop playing the victim GaGa. Madonna never did, she just got on with it. Lady GaGa is all about freedom of expression yet you say one thing she doesn't agree with and you are labeled a "bully". At least Madonna knows and respects that not everyone agrees with what she does but she just doesn't care. If Lady GaGa was so respectful of peoples views then she wouldn't "bash" her critics so much. She would just get on with it.”

AndrewHarland1 on Sep 21, 2012 at 00:51:28

“P.S. your little comment about her dancing is hilarious. Madonna is a professionally trained dancer and has moves that really do outshine GaGas high school talent show moves.”

AndrewHarland1 on Sep 21, 2012 at 00:50:00

“Oh so you think that she should act a certain way because she is older? Are you going to tell GaGa to get out of the outfits when shes that age? Unlike GaGa Madonna saves those outfits for the stage and wears t shirts and jeans wheras gaga goea around in a freaking thong! Madonna sings at all her concerts! Go look! Your comment is ageist. Since your idol is such an anti bullying campaigner I'm sure she should be soo proud to have bullying fans as yourself. Little Monsters are the real bullies!”

Lily01 on Sep 20, 2012 at 21:45:33

“Or making numerous BRILLIANT popsongs, singing live when performing almost acrobatic dance movements, calling someone out when being serial plagiarised and getting heat from tons of people who .... obviously haven't made the effort to actually do some research ?

“Oh yes, because her fans don't make catty ageist remarks towards Madonna! Tell what Madonna said that was so terrible? She has a opinion that you people don't respect. You are the catty ones.GaGa criticises anyone who doesn't like her or agree with what she does. Its pure and simple fact! Tell me what exactly Madonna is doing that is "bullying"? So saying you're flattered by an artist is bullying. Get over yourselves! Pandering to the gay community is nothing to base a career on. Madonna presented her life on a plate and let anyone come who was interested. Men, women, children, gays whoever. She didn't need to exploit an alienated demographic.”
