There's been a lot of under the radar tension between these two pop divas over the years, and there's no denying some of the similarities between Madge and Gaga, from their musical styles to their love of fashion. Which superstar is YOUR pick for the title of pop queen?
It's the song that caused ALL of that Madonna/Lady Gaga controversy, when Madonna made her no holds barred claim that 'Born This Way' was EERILY similar to her own hit 'Express Yourself'. What's your verdict?
Madonna's world famous conical bra was a statement on mixing femininity and aggression, so we can't help but think Lady Gaga's sparkling bodice number may have been the next step on this front. Picture: Getty
Unfortunately, despite being the professionals they both are, it happens to us ALL! Who remembers when Gaga spectacularly stacked it off a grand piano? Or does Madonna's BRIT Awards 2015 #CapeGate take the biscuit with this one? Picture: Getty
When it comes to their health and fitness these are two women who take things VERY seriously. But while Madonna likes to push herself to the limit with gruelling workouts and fitness regimes, Gaga's more of a yoga girl at heart. Picture: Rex/Instagram
It's the word BOTH of these stars have been linked with over the years. The original 'reinvention' superstar Madonna has been through more looks and eras than we can count, but Mother Monster ALSO loves to mix things up. Picture: Getty
Lady Gaga's JUST gotten engaged to her super hot boyfriend Taylor Kinney, from TV's 'Chicago Fire', while Madonna's been through a string of sexy younger chaps since splitting from Guy Ritchie, including hunks like Jesus Luz and Timor Steffans. Picture: Getty/Rex
Any TRUE lady of pop knows you need to make a big impact for your performance entrance, so it's clear that Gaga's learned from the best judging by her infamous VMAs entrance being birthed out of a giant egg. But did Madonna trump her again with that throne at the Super Bowl? Picture: Getty
If you want to stick around a long time in the business it looks like you need to court controversy at every turn, and both of these ladies of pop have no problem on this front. In the late eighties, Madonna's 'Like A Prayer' video featured her performing in front of a saint-like figure in a church after witnessing a prejudice in the streets, while Gaga's 'Judas' music video actually takes on the controversial religious figure and THENSOME!
When it comes to making a statement with their fashion, both Madonna and Gaga know how to steal the spotlight. However, Madonna's outfits usually rely on sex appeal and activist messaging while Lady Gaga goes down the more theatrical route with her fashion looks. Picture: Getty
Madonna's been around a LONG time, during which she's teamed up with several huge names like Kanye West and Justin Timberlake. But Lady Gaga has also been VERY selective with her collaborations, namely her INCREDIBLE 'Telephone' team-up with Beyonce! Picture: Getty
