Madonna settles an argument the old fashioned way
Lady Gaga and Madonna have come to blows. Not actual blows, you understand, they didn’t get thrown out of a nightclub in Guildford by the bouncer for Bacardi Breezer-flinging and hair-pulling, although THAT would be a YouTube clip I’d like to see.
Instead, Madonna made a vaguely catty comment on stage about Gaga copying her, and Gaga retaliated by pointing out that Madonna has been around for 25 years (a statement of fact) and asking her to play nicely.
On stage during a concert in Auckland, the Poker Face singer said: ‘I don’t even want to fight back because it’s more important to me to keep writing music... things are really different than they were 25 years ago, and that’s what makes Born this Way so relevant for me.’ Bitchy stuff hey?
The vitriolic onslaught was only stemmed when Madonna, in turn, got her boob out on stage in Turkey. At this genius move both Lady Gaga and the rest of the world were shocked into stunned silence, and no more was said on the subject.
If I've learnt anything from this turn of events, it's that next time I'm having an argument with my mum/friend/boss (hey Jane!)/the bus driver and it doesn't look like I'm going to win, all I have to do is get a boob out, and hey presto!
I wonder if this is what was going on here?
