Lady Gaga has been accused of ripping off Madonna with her newest single, "Born This Way." On the Tonight Show last night, she didn't really refute this.
"You know, there is really no one that is a more adoring and loving Madonna fan than me," she said. "I am the hugest fan personally and professionally."
It sounds like the feeling is reciprocal, too.
"I got an email from her people sending me their love and support on behalf of the single," Gaga said. "And if the queen says it shall be, then it shall be."
Indeed. Good enough for Madonna, good enough for us!
The Lady, who performed "Born This Way" live at the Grammys Sunday, went on to explain to Jay Leno what the song means to her - and everybody:"Essentially, with the visuals and the music and lyrics, it's about being able to know that when you were born, you weren't just born in that moment."
"You have your entire life to realize the person that you're potentially going to become and however you choose to be is part of your destiny."
"In this moment, if you don't feel entirely happy and secure in who you are... it's never too late to harness your confidence, your inner superstars."
"The freedom in the song, the R&B, early '90s vibe it has, it's so full of love and spirit, and I think that it's the spirit people are reacting to the most."
"I just want everyone to rejoice and celebrate and be unafraid to be happy. It doesn't always have to be so dark. It doesn't always have to be sexy."
"Sometimes it's wonderful just to celebrate life and kind of go to church with it."
Gaga recently admitted on 60 minutes that she smokes a lot of pot when she writes music. Whatever kind she partakes in, we gotta find some of it.
