Lady GaGa responded to Madonna’s “MDNA” tour “Born This Way/Express Yourself” mash-up performance recently during a New Zealand concert:

“It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves to put other people down or make fun of them or maybe make mockery of their work…And that doesn’t make me feel good at all. That just makes me feel like I’m not being a good human being.”

She continued: “I don’t even want to fight back because it’s more important to me to keep writing music. Because that’s really all I care about, is the music…”

Lady GaGa made a similar statement during an interview with Australia’s Daily Telegraph: “I was born to make music and I was born to perform…Every moment of every day I am dreaming up new music, dreaming up ways of making my tour and stage more extravagant and beautiful than ever before.”
