Looking like Lady Bunny 25 lbs. ago and on muscle relaxers, a pre-concussion Lady Gaga spoke candidly about her one-sided feud with Madonna to a New Zealand crowd.
Without mentioning the Material Girl by name (which, like the Bloody Mary game of childhood, puts the speaker at risk of being attacked by a ghostly pale sinewy creature who feeds on the young), Gaga took the high road after months of Madonna making "reductive" happen.
"That doesn't make me feel good at all," Gaga said in reference to tearing others down. "That just makes me feel like I'm not a good human being ... I don't even want to fight back because it's more important to me to keep writing music. Because that's really all I care about, is the music ... things are really different than they were 25 years ago, and that's what makes "Born This Way" so relevant for me. We're socially in a different place and it's OK, we don't have to all slice and hate each other anymore."
Who do you think does the feud better? The diva method executed by the 53-year old nipples of Madonna or the heartfelt plea for peace issued by Gaga?
