They have a feud stretching back years.
And after a relatively calm period between Lady Gaga and Madonna, the Material Girl icon has hit out at her rival for supposedly stealing a famous quote of hers.
The drama started when a video compilation circulated online of Gaga repeatedly using a quote during her A Star is Born press tour earlier this year.
Here we go again: Madonna has hit out at her rival Lady Gaga for supposedly stealing a famous quote of hers, in the latest installment in their long-running feud
‘There can be 100 people in a room and 99 of them don’t believe in you, but all it takes is one and it just changes your whole life,’ the singer and actress has said on multiple occasions.
But it turns out the quote is very similar to one said by Madonna in the 1980s, with the star herself posting an Instagram story on Monday showing herself being interviewed thirty years ago, saying: ‘If there are 100 people in a room and 99 say they liked it, I only remember the one person who didn’t.’
Madonna also posted an Insta snap of herself with the caption ‘Don’t F–k with Me Monday,’ leading to a flurry of comments and back and forths between her fans and Gaga’s Little Monsters.

‘For all the 11-year-old Gaga fans, just google ‘Single White Female,’ then you’ll understand why Madonna is likely upset,’ said one fan.
When Gaga first burst on the music scene, she and Madonna seemed close, posing together at a 2009 Marc Jacobs fashion show.
The ladies even went on to have a pretend cat fight for a skit on Saturday Night Live in October of the same year.
However, relations between the pair went south after Gaga was accused of copying Madonna’s song Express Yourself on her 2011 single Born This Way.

When asked by ABC News about the similarities, which were pointed out by many fans on the internet, Madge called the singer ‘reductive.’
‘Is that good?,’ reporter Cynthia McFadden shot back to the short answer. ‘Look it up,’ the pop queen responded with a sly smile while taking a sip from her tea cup.
Madonna went on to mash up Born This Way with her own 1989 hit that Gaga was accused of copying on her MDNA Tour in 2012.
The ladies appeared to kiss and make up the following year when they were spotted posing together at the Met Gala in a social media photo with Katy Perry, seemingly attempting to prove there was harmony in the pop diva land.

However, in 2016 when Beats 1 Radio DJ Zane Lowe implied to Gaga that she and Madonna had very similar background stories, Gaga seemed annoyed by the comparison that has followed her through her career.
‘Madonna and I are very different. I wouldn’t make that comparison at all. I don’t mean to disrespect Madonna. She’s a nice lady. And she’s had a fantastic huge career she’s the biggest pop star of all time.
‘But I play a lot of instruments, I write all my own music. I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I’m a producer, I’m a writer. What I do is different. I’m not just rehearsing over and over again to put on a show,’ she stated dryly.
Netflix documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two, shows the singer, 31, candidly discussing the Material Girl.
‘The thing with, like, me and Madonna, for example, is that I admired her always. And I still admire her no matter what she may think of me,’ the blond tells a friend as they sit on the floor.
‘The only thing that really bothers me about her is that I’m Italian and from New York, you know. So, like, if I’ve got a problem with somebody I’m gonna f—ing tell you to your face,’ says Gaga. ‘But, no matter how much respect I have for her as a performer, I could never wrap my head around the fact that she wouldn’t look me in the eye and tell me that I was reductive or whatever.’
