Madonna totally disses 'obsessive' Lady Gaga
And that vigilance paid off: In a new interview with a French newspaper, Madonna expressed her dismissive disdain for Lady Gaga, who herself has admitted to idolizing Madge.
"As for Lady Gaga," says the 53-year-old icon, "I have no comment to make about her obsessions having to do with me because I don't know whether her behavior is rooted in something deep and meaningful, or superficial."
Madonna's longtime publicist, Liz Rosenberg, was quick to make this statement to E! News in an attempt to smooth over any perceived slight: "I do know that [Madonna] has said many supportive things about Gaga over the years."
"You know, there is really no one that is a more adoring and loving Madonna fan than me," Gaga once said. "I am the hugest fan personally and professionally."
Score: Gaga 1, Madonna 0
