Lady Gaga on Madonna controversy

Lady Gaga's been responding to the criticism that her new song 'Born This Way' has similarities to Madonna's Express Yourself from the late 80s.

The three times Grammy winner has been on the Jay Leno show to chat about her new single, the forthcoming video, the album and the inspiration she draws from Willow Smith.

But on the Madonna controversy she said,

"There is really no one that is a more adoring or loving Madonna fan than me. I am the hugest fan personally and professionally." Then the singer told the audience  she received an e-mail from Madonna and her people “sending me their love and complete support on behalf of the single. And if the queen says it shall be, then it shall be.”

Gaga also tweeted this incredible picture:
