Katy Perry covers Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' in France (but not in French)

katy-perry-lady-gaga-cover.jpg We'll be damned if we don't love it when Katy Perry tones things down a bit. And during a Mar. 7 performance in Paris, the singer got nice and acoustic -- to cover Lady Gaga.

Her stripped down rendition of "Born This Way" is a palate-cleansing alternate to the original that all but erases those pesky Madonna comparisons.
