Did Madonna Just Try To Reignite Beef With Lady Gaga?

Uh...

Madonna might have just taken a subtle jab at Lady Gaga.

According to USA Today, Madonna dug up an old interview she had done in which she said, "If there are 100 people in a room and 99 say they liked it, I only remember the one person who didn't" and posted it to her stories. If the line sounds familiar, it's because Gaga has repeated a variation on it quite a few times throughout the duration of her A Star Is Born press tour.

Madonna also shared some additional words (without naming who they were directed at) in two posts to her feed, saying, "Dont F*^k with me Monday," and "I heard it all before...talk is cheap. If you can't improve the silence...say nothing. #sorrynotsorry."


The pop icon previously feuded with Lady Gaga over the similarity of chord progressions between her "Express Yourself" and Gaga's "Born This Way," but, as Gaga had pointed out at the time, "It's the same [chord progression] that's been in disco music for the last 50 years. Just because I'm the first fucking artist in 25 years to think of putting it on Top 40 radio, it doesn't mean I'm a plagiarist, it means that I'm fucking smart."

But, did these posts try to reignite the beef? Even if so, as Jezebel points out, Lady Gaga has way better things going on right now and, likely, has no time to pay any mind to whatever Madonna is up to on the internet.

I'm cackling

Last year, Balenciaga released bright red square-toed mules which bore a striking resemblance to McDonald's french fry cartons. Now, the chain has fired back at the designer, threatening to release its own version of the shoes.

McDonald's Sweden posted a photo to its Instagram of a person wearing actual McDonald's fry cartons as shoes, and honestly, if there weren't yellow M's printed onto them, I'd have a hard time distinguishing them from the Balenciagas from a distance. Though the post doesn't directly reference the Balenciaga shoes, one can only assume that's who they are trolling.

McDonald's version actually makes for some pretty fly slip-ons, if you ask me. Good thing the Swedish branch of Mickey D's seems to be considering releasing the shoes if the post receives enough attention. The caption of the Instagram post translates to, "If we get 103042 likes we release these for real," though it only has about 17,000 as of publish time. These would likely cost much less than the Balenciaga shoes, which cost $545.

Internet, do your thing. I want a pair.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.
