GRAMMY winning superstar, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm], has released her hit song, “Born This Way” and with much anticipation the singer performed it for the very first time during the award show. The song and performance have had fans and critics doing a lot of talking… some good and some bad. The question on almost everyone’s mind is “does this sound like Madonnas “Express Yourself”?

[photogallerylink id=28676 align=right]The song was first “leaked” online as a ballad but as we all know it’s since been released as an upbeat dance track. I happen to think the ballad is awesome and it doesn’t sound remotely close to anything [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Madonna[/lastfm] has put out.

Madonna’s camp apparently put Gaga’s mind at ease because the pop star relayed this message while on The Tonight show with Jay Leno, “Well, the good news is that I got an e-mail from her people, and her sending me their love and complete support on behalf of the single, and if the queen says it shall be, then it shall be.”

Regardless of receiving the Queen’s blessing via e-mail, I still happen to think the two songs sound an awful lot a like…

Should Gaga have released “Born This Way” as a ballad or is it fabulous the way it is? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
