2012: Madonna Doubles, Then Triples Down on Her Shade
Once the cat was out of the bag, Madonna lashed out with extra helpings of distaste for Lady Gaga. In a July 2012 interview with a Brazilian TV show, she spoke about the song again. "I'm a really big fan of ["Born This Way"]," she said. "I'm glad that I helped Gaga write it."
That Summer, Madonna was also jet-setting around the globe for her MDNA tour. At one point during her show, she performed a mashup of "Express Yourself" and "Born This Way." She even interjected the remix with a brief chorus of "She's Not Me," a song from her 2008 album Hard Candy. Damn.
