“Just listened to a clip of Lady Gaga ’Born This Way’ and I gotta say … sounds a lot like ’Express Yourself’ from Madonna. Thoughts?” he tweeted. “OK. Good. A lotta peeps are saying the same thing so maybe I won’t get raked over the coals :) I thought I was crazy for a second. And by the way … I’m not dogging it. Haven’t even heard it all … that was just my first impresh.”
While Perez Hilton has raved about the song in previous interviews with MTV News, the gossip blogger welcomed the Madonna reference, tweeting, “Express Yourself 2.0 is what people are saying? I’ll happily take that!!! #BornThisWayFriday.”
