The 56-year-old megastar posted even more proof of the non-beef to her Instagram on Monday – making it the second time this week she’s responded to the alleged grudge.
The latest evidence came in the form of a picture Madonna reposted from Gaga’s Instagram – to which she added the trademark face netting that has become a marketing meme for her upcoming album, Rebel Heart.
Gaga posted the original image to her Instagram on Saturday with the caption: “Careful witch, I’ll put a spell on you. Or maybe I already did.” Perhaps not-so-coincidentally, the picture was posted the same day that Madonna’s manager, Guy Oseary, answered questions about the alleged rivalry in a Twitter Q&A with fans.
Rumors of a feud started swirling back in August, after several tracks from Madonna’s unreleased Rebel Heart album leaked online. The Sun reported that a demo titled Two Steps Behind contained the lyrics “You’re a copycat, get back/ I’m always on your mind” – and speculated the song might be a shot at Gaga.
“That song is NOT about Gaga or anyone in particular,” Oseary told fans in his Q&A. “The song is an unfinished demo she had no intention of finishing or releasing along with many others. She has NO ill will towards Gaga. It s nonsense. She was listening to [Gaga s] Tony Bennett duet album last week and appreciating it.”
Madonna herself weighed in just hours later, slamming anyone perpetuating the rumors: “[There] are People that are so hateful. they want to create feuds between strong women that do not exist!” she posted. “I do not wish ill will towards any other female artist and i never have! The World is big enough for all of us!”
