It's not a big deal that Lady Gaga is getting paid. Madonna is the Queen of Pop. I don't know why you think she cares to pay royalties to sample "Born This Way". It's disposable money. It's so minimal to her savings and what she will be earning from the tour.
The three cans depicted in the original picture. Madonna knew what she was doing or whoever was behind it.
Looks to me like Gaga's taking meticulous notes from the good sis, Madonna. Except, Gaga's still learning the "real-world application" aspect to the whole rip-off thing. I mean, who's better at ripping off anything while maintaining a fresh and unique spin to it.

A CD came out of nowhere almost hitting Legendtina but she quickly moved. Her legendary senses were back. She saw no one around. Quickly picking up the CD she nearly vomited. It was an Ashanti greatest hits CD. But she knew the island was playing tricks on her because no such thing existed.
you mean after it will be remembered for the best selling tour in all time.
I never mentioned the tour. But you're a Madonna fan, so again I'll be patient. I'm saying that her music, which I believe is the reason why most people stan (though Madge stans seem to only be here to defend her legacy and not her actual artistry), sucks. But sure, maintain an argument you can't win and go listen to such gems as "Girl Gone Wild" and "Gang Bang."
That Forbes article was written before the fact, and obviously Gaga's producer would say anything to save face
As a performer, you do not have to pay performance royalties. These are paid by the venue which hired you to perform. However, if you record your show and sell it as a live album, you will need to pay for the compulsory licenses, discussed later in this article.
