Madonna Disses Lady Gaga Again - Other Celebs Who Don't Like the Singer

Yahoo Contributor Network

Madge is at it again. The legendary pop singer is taking digs at Lady Gaga once more, this time in a Brazilian interview.

"I'm a really big fan of Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way,'" Madonna said. "I'm glad I helped Gaga write it." The snide comment was originally caught on video and posted to YouTube but has since been removed.

Madonna has made several negative comments regarding Lady Gaga over the years and even more so when "Born This Way" was released due to its similarity to the icon's hit song "Express Yourself."

"I thought [when I heard 'Born This Way'], this is a wonderful way to redo my song ['Express Yourself']. I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was...interesting," she said earlier this year.

The pop diva isn't the only one who isn't feeling Gaga's get up. Several other celebrities have expressed their distaste for the over the top performer.

Marilyn Manson

When Gaga first came out critics said she was a marketing creation influenced by Marilyn Manson and Madonna due to her infusion of pop music and shock and scare tactics in her music and performances. Manson wasn't too pleased with being compared to the singer, even though the two have worked in the studio together on one of Gaga's remixes.

"I'm starting to feel that people are saying I'm Lady Gaga and also that Jesse James woman. I'm starting to feel insulted, 'cause I don't want to look like either one of them," he said.

We can definitely see the freaky similarities. Would you want to be compared to Lady Gaga?

Michel Gondry

Legendary film maker and music video director Michel Gondry dismissed Gaga's talent when asked about her two years ago. Michel has made videos for everyone from Bjork to The White Stripes and even The Rolling Stones. It doesn't look like Gondry will be lining up to work with the pop singer anytime soon.

"I'm not interested. To me it's like a form of Marilyn Manson. It's hard for me to talk about it; I've seen a couple of videos of hers, and not for very long," he said.

"I stop watching them each time because I don't think there's melodies. I'm sorry to be negative. Like I'm not a big fan of Madonna. I respect her very much, but unfortunately the videos didn't help the music in the long run. Well, I guess it helped it to survive to the point where the video was irrelevant. So music has to find its own way, which is good for the music. I compare it to Marilyn Manson. The music to me is very expected," he continued.

Bette Midler

Bette Midler is one legendary Hollywood diva you shouldn't mess with and she's probably the last person whose toes you want to step on. Bette took to Twitter in summer 2011 to vent her Gaga frustrations after Gaga was seen performing her "Mermaid in a Wheelchair" act on stage.

"I'm not sure @ladygaga knows that I've performed my mermaid in a wheelchair for millions of people -- and many of them are still alive..." Bette tweeted last summer.

The next day she continued her disdain for Gaga's performance. "Dear @ladygaga if you think a mermaid in a wheelchair seems familiar-it's because it is!You can see it on youtube 24/7-with ME performing it."

Gaga went on to claim to "Access Hollywood" she wasn't aware of Bette's on stage mermaid routine. "I had no idea that she did that and I'm a huge Bette Midler fan," she said.

Do you think Lady Gaga is an original musician or is she copying styles from those before her? Sound off!
