Lady Gaga describes claims of plagiarism as “retarded”
HollywoodNews.com: Lady Gaga might have a bit of apologizing to do in the near future as she recently dropped a word in an interview that many believe the usage to be inappropriate.
In a recent interview with ‘NME’ magazine, Gaga addressed the recent claims of plagiarism and described the situation as “retarded,” states UsMagazine.com.
“I’m a songwriter. I’ve written loads of music. Why would I try to put out a song and think I’m getting one over on everybody? That’s retarded,” Gaga said about “Born This Way” being like Madonna’s “Express Yourself.”
Gaga further defended her song by explaining the similarities: “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.”
Do you think Lady Gaga should apologize for using that word?
