Madonna covered Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" track during rehearsals for a concert in Tel Aviv. The 53-year-old singer was filmed singing her track "Express Yourself" before going into Gaga's "Born This Way"- clearly digging at the 26-year-old for ripping her song off.
Madonna had previously expressed that "Born This Way" was strikingly similar to her 1989 song "Express Yourself". In an interview with ABC News, Madonna said: "I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song. I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was interesting."

However, Lady Gaga dismissed claims of plagiarizing Madonna's song. She told NME: "What a completely ridiculous thing to even question me about. ... If you put the songs next to each other, side by side, the only similarities are the chord progression. It's the same one that's been in disco music for the last 50 years."
Madonna is currently on her world MDNA tour. Lady Gaga is still busy with her "Born This Way" Ball tour. Her concert scheduled for June 3 in Jakarta, Indonesia, has been cancelled due to security fears after facing strong opposition from Islamic groups.
Lady Gaga made the announcement on Twitter: "We had to cancel the concert in Indonesia. I'm so very sorry to the fans & just as devastated as you if not more. You are everything to me. I will try to put together something special for you. My love for Indonesia has only grown. #GagaSendsLoveToJakarta and all its people."
