Bystanders who were watching a recent rehearsal for Madonna’s upcoming Tel Aviv, Israel performance on May 31 seemed to have gotten a little more than they bargained for.
In a video that was released via YouTube on Sunday (May 27), the iconic songstress took the stage to go over her hit “Express Yourself” but instead threw in a little of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” about halfway through the performance, belting it out as if it were her own.
Despite the controversy, the 26-year-old performer told Jay Leno on the “Tonight Show” last year that Madonna sent her “love and complete support,” but earlier this year the “MDNA” singer had a slightly different opinion.
In an interview with Newsweek magazine when she first got a taste of the song for herself the 53-year-old icon described the new track as a “redo” of “Express Yourself” and “thought it was… interesting.”
