AceShowbiz - Madonna reiterates that there's no bad blood between her and Lady GaGa. After her manager Guy Oseary shot down rumors that the diva dissed GaGa and called her "a copycat" on a leaked song called "Two Steps Behind", Madge herself took to Instagram to set the record straight.
"There are those who want to shut me up but they cannot! We still live in a world that discriminates against women. [They] are people that are so hateful," the "Like a Virgin" hitmaker wrote and went on accusing media of trying to create feuds that don't exist.
"They want to create feuds between strong women that do not exist! I do not wish ill will towards any other female artist and I never have!" she continued. "The world is big enough for all of us! I will fight for my rights as an artist, a human and a woman till the end of my days! Because I am a #rebelheart."
She also expressed her anger over the leak of her music, "I walk in the footsteps of giants and I will not apologize or defend my unpublished, unfinished, STOLEN work. If you don't like who i am or what I have to say then why are you reading this? #unapologeticb***h. P.S. Do not post hateful words about other people on my page either. If you are my fan speak no evil! #livingforlove."
The song "Two Step Behind", which features lines like "You're a copycat, get back," first leaked over the summer. People later speculated that the track was about GaGa. The feud rumors re-emerged recently, when a fan asked Oseary if Madonna still hated GaGa in a Q&A session on Twitter.
"She has NO ill will towards gaga. It's nonsense. She was listening to the Tony Bennett duet album last week and appreciating it," he replied.
