5 Ways Lady Gaga Has Officially Stolen Madonna’s ‘Like A Prayer’ Style

Lady Gaga is officially back on the scene with the leak of her first single from her third album, “ArtPop.” And the singer was just announced as a part of the 2013 Video Music Awards musical lineup at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Aug 25. As a result of all this buzz, the singer has been spotted rocking distinctly less extravagant looks than before– be gone meat dress! You know how it goes with her: new album, new style.

In the past, it’s been noted that Gaga has the uncanny ability to reinvent her style, but she’s also suffered from spot-on comparisons to other artists. One in particular is Madonna, who’s she’s been compared to since the debut of her album “The Fame” in 2008. Having a lot of the same influences, like Marilyn Monroe and Andy Warhol, it’s often hard to not to see Gaga as the mirror image of the pop icon.

This similarity is even more apparent with the release of her new single “Applause,” that… if you ask us, was directly jacked from Madonna’s 1989 album “Like a Prayer” album. Here are six ways Gaga’s style right now is exactly like Madonna’s:

1. Bras –not bralettes, but bras– have become an everyday item.
2. She’s ventured from platinum blonde to dark brunette, but could easily switch back.
3. Black is the ONLY color she wears.
4. Torn clothing is considered a cute accent.
5. Her single, “Applause” has serious rave party appeal, like “Express Yourself” still does today.

Don’t see it? Listen to her single and tell us your thoughts.

    I’m amazed that someone can steal another person’s personality, wardrobe style, music style and actually get away with it. I wish Madonna could sue her, but she obvs cant :O

      Nothing is new under the sun kiddo

        Actually Madonna was a trail blazer and she did bring a lot of “new” under the sun….. so much so that she will go down in history as one of the most important women of all time. Considering she came out in the 1980s and supported the gay movement when it was taboo, AIDS, the way she challenged religion, women’s sexuality. All of these things had NOT BEEN done before in the global media before Madonna. So it was very new under the sun, indeed.

      Madonna took from others as well ( nothing bad with it, every artists do) for her music and style and she had no media bashing for it.
      Gaga took influence from madonna and others and she’s often bashed for it.

      They don’t have the same personality at all if you watch their itw.
      Their fashion styles are sometimes similar and sometimes not but Madonna is trying ALL the styles possible since more than 30 years so you can’t get any style that is not looking a bit like one she already sported at some point lol.

      Gaga also worn stuff that were obvious hommage to madonna and was bashed for it. -_- Madonna could be bashed for her style hommage to Monroe then if tributes are not allowed anymore.

    Only difference is that Madonna is actually beautiful while Stefani…not so much!

      Insulting someone’s appearance is the lowest thing ever dude. Grow up and progress.
