Lady Gaga gets defensive; drops an R bomb

Last year it was Jennifer Aniston who got in trouble for using the word “retard” in an interview, and now it’s Lady Gaga‘s turn.  When asked in a recent interview whether she thought her songs and her persona in general were too reminiscent of Madonna, Gaga flew into a rage and called the recent allegations of plagiarism “retarded.”

She went on to say that there is nothing derivative about her music, and that as a songwriter she prides herself on her originality.  Gaga claims that it is ridiculous to compare anything she has ever done to anything Madonna has ever done.  Now, of course, no one cares about the originality thing anymore – they just want to know if she’s going to apologize for saying “retarded.”
