Lady Gaga and Madonna end their eight-year feud by hugging it out at Oscars after-party
Gaga and Madonna's fight started in 2011 after critics claimed that Gaga‘s 'Born This Way' sounded a lot like Madonna‘s song 'Express Yourself'
It was eight years ago that Lady Gaga and Madonna locked horns over the former's hit song, 'Born This Way'. But it looks like the 'A Star Is Born' actress is ready to let bygones be bygones, as the megastars were spotted embracing each other at an Oscars after-party in Los Angeles.
Even though the event had a strict ban on social media posts, TIME managed to partner with the artistes and photographer JR for an exclusive look at the partygoers. According to Daily Mail, the feuding singers put an end to their eight-year-long feud and hugged it out on Sunday night.
The 'Like A Virgin' songstress was dressed in a beige silk Indian dress with several gold bracelets, which she paired with an exotic diamond veil. With her hair done up in braids, Madonna had her arms around Gaga, who was still in her black Oscar dress and with her blonde hair worn up.
The 'Poker Face' singer had earlier in the night picked up an Oscar for her delightful performance in 'A Star Is Born' alongside Bradley Cooper. And she delivered a passionate performance with Cooper on stage at the award show, prompting tweeters to go into overdrive with speculation of a budding romance between the costars.
Meanwhile, fans would remember that Gaga and Madonna's fight started in 2011 after critics claimed that Gaga's 'Born This Way' sounded a lot like Madonna‘s song 'Express Yourself'. At the time, Gaga labeled the comparisons as "ridiculous".
But in 2015, Madonna seemed to agree that her track had been borrowed, to which, Gaga said in a 2016 press conference, "Madonna and I are very different. I wouldn’t make that comparison at all. I don’t mean to disrespect Madonna… she’s a nice lady, and she’s had a fantastic, huge career."
She continued, "She’s the biggest pop star of all time… But I play a lot of instruments. I write all my own music. I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I’m a producer. I’m a writer. What I do is different." But that seemed to rub the 'Like A Prayer' singer in the wrong way, who retaliated on social media. Madonna shared a meme of Hillary Clinton looking at her phone, and the text read, "Can’t hear you. Too busy being awesome." She captioned the photo by writing: "Like a boss! LOL."
