Did Lady Gaga Shoplift Her Style?

Lady Gaga's wild fashion sense is one of a kind.

At least it was, back when Roisin Murphy invented it.

Or so the Irish electro-pop ice-maiden claims, sparking perhaps the biggest music Twitter feud of the past day. Did Lady Gaga steal her off-the-wall style?

Yes she did, according to Roisin Murphy, 36, who told Irish Central that one of the hottest names in pop today is just a knockoff, and a poor one at that:

"Lady Gaga is just a poor imitation of me. She has copied my style."

Is she just jealous of the newcomer's fame or does Murphy have a point? A look at these Lady Gaga pictures compared with hers sheds some light on that:

Okay, so the Irish singer makes a point. But on the flip side, maybe she should just get over it. What musician doesn't emulate their predecessors in some form?

The Beatles, Elvis, The Clash, Bruce Springsteen and others have inspired artists far and wide. Michael Jackson has been ripped off by pretty much everyone.

We say let Lady G be.

As long as her songs keep climbing the charts, Perez Hilton wants to be her, magazines want to show Lady Gaga nude, and random fans want to dissect concert videos to start rumors that she's a hermaphrodite, then more power to her.
