Madonna: "I Helped Lady GaGa Write Born This Way"

The Queen of Pop has taken another swipe at GaGa over the track...

Madonna has poked fun at Lady GaGa again, joking that she 'helped' the singer write her hit single, Born This Way.

There has been much debate over whether GaGa's song is similar to Madge's classic hit Express Yourself - with the Queen of Pop admitting she felt the track "sounded familiar".

GaGa hit back at the criticism, telling NME magazine back in April that the comparisons between Born This Way and Express Yourself were "retarded."

Not one to back down, the Like A Prayer hitmaker reignited the tensions between herself and GaGa by performing a mash-up of Born This Way and Express Yourself during her MDNA world tour, with Lady G later accusing Madge of 'making a mockery' of her work.

Now, Digital Spy has reported that Madonna has addressed the similarities again, stating in an interview on Brazilian TV: "I'm a really big fan of ['Born This Way']. I'm glad that I helped GaGa write it."

Lady GaGa is yet to respond to Madonna's latest comments.
