Camille Paglia on the Gaga - Madonna comparison



Leading American feminist author Camille Paglia explains the difference betweenLady Gaga and Madonna in an article published by the UK Sunday Times Magazine.

Paglia accused Gaga of not being one of the few original artists of today's young music scene, claiming she has copied a host of iconic stars, most notably Madonna. Many critics hailed the video to Gaga's last single Alejandro as heavily borrowing from Madonna's Vogue and Like A Prayer videos. Paglia said: 'Gaga has borrowed so heavily from Madonna that it must be asked, at what point does homage become theft? However, the main point is that the young Madonna was on fire. She was indeed the imperious Marlene Dietrich’s true heir.'

However, Gaga herself has acknowledged comparisons to the Material Girl, saying last year: 'I think what Madonna and I share is that we are both fearless. We both have a lot of nerve. 'We're both Italian-American women, we both started out in the New York underground scene - and we both became famous when we dyed our hair blonde.'
