Madonna Claims Gwen Stefani Is Copying Her
ContactMusic.com reports that Madonna believes No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani has copied her appearance and followed her lead by marrying a British man. “She ripped me off. We work with a lot of the same people,” the Material Girl sniffed. “She married a Brit, she’s got blonde hair and she likes fashion. But I don’t mind. I think she’s very sweet and talented.”
Madonna Under Fire With Rabbis
October 29, 2005 – David Spade joked on his ‘Showbiz Show’ report the other night, “Madonna has come under fire with rabbis who claim a song on her new album about a Kabbalah scholar is a cheap attempt to profit from his name. Because nothing says ‘cashing in’ more than a trendy song about a sixteenth century Jewish mystic.”
‘Confessions’ Producer Discusses Madonna’s Latest
October 28, 2005 – PopJustice.co.uk caught up with Stuart Price for a Q&A and asked the producer of Madonna’s new album ‘Confessions On A Dance Floor’ if there was anything he could have done to her new single ‘Hung Up’ to make it sound any more gay. “A lot of people are saying this,” Price admitted. “I don’t know, it doesn’t strike me as being that gay. Is it the Abba sample that makes it like that? It’s got a bit of a strut hasn’t it? When you put that record on your hips just start doing… Well, I I was going to say unnatural movements, but unfortunately they’re very natural movements, aren’t they? I’m not sure how we could have sprinkled any more glitter on that track, though.”
Madonna’s ‘Confessions’ Probably Album Of The Year
October 28, 2005 – Popjustice.co.uk reviewed Madonna’s new album ‘Confessions On A Dance Floor’ ahead of its release on November 15th. They called it “the best dance music that sounds like pop music album of 2005” and said it’s “probably Album Of The Year.”
well duh Gwen said that she was heavily influenced by Madonna while making her cd. Though this excerpt is taken out of context (surprise surprise) Madonna loves Gwen.
Hmm…blonde, likes fashion and married a British guy…well, I’m sure Madonna was the first woman to ever be like that……..I think not.
This seems fake. Madonna doesn’t seem the type to actually give a damn about something like that. And if she did say that I bet she was just teasing. She can’t get mad at every person that’s inspired by her look and is married to a British guy (in that case I guess she can get mad at me too when I get married to my British guy).
Wow. Madonna is such a genius, because I know women NEVER liked any of those things before Madonna came along. Such an inspiration. *sniffle* *end sarcasm*
oh my god! Madonna is such a self centered, cantankerous, old *****! She is just saying this because she is jealous of the much younger, prettier, way more talented singer/songwriter/phenom that is Gwen Stefani. No one even cares about that old battleaxe anymore so she has to name drop to get attention. What a sad corpse!
god you must be as dumb as they come… first of all gwen doesn’t write her songs, secondly beauty is in the eye of the beholder, thirdly these are your opinions jackass. Nobody cares anymore? Then why did Hung Up debut at number 20 on the billboard hot 100 huh beotch?
Gwen does look like Madonna in most of her pictures. Their have been so many times when I’ve seen photos of Gwen and I thought at first it was a picture of Madonna from her Express Yourself look through her Bedtime Stories days. And Gwen’s videos do copy Madonna a lot also. It’s starts off with Don’t Speak, which she copies Madonna’s Live to Tell look for and keeps going. Basically every video from their forward she’s ripping off something from Madonna. Next to Christina Gwen is the biggest Madonna Copycat.
Madonna is a lil full of herself. Hopefully, she was just being sarcastic/flattered like someone above said. If not, she needs to get over herself and be flattered she influenced a talent like Gwen.
She may be self-centered and a B!tch but she has aged well… and she has proven herself multi-talented and one smart business woman. I may not always like her music and sometimes what she has to say or how she goes about things but I will always give her credit where credit is due. And what the hell is wrong with being older? Life does not end at 25 people!
Madonna is a hypocrite, she has been ripping off Marylin Monroe for years. And Stefani was dating Gavin long before Madonna even met Guy Ritchie.
If this is true, then this is another example how two-faced Madonna is. Slagging them off and then saying “But she’s very sweet and talented.” And I didn’t know Madonna was the first woman to dye her hair blonde or the first American to marry someone British. I guess you learn something new everyday!
I disagree to it. Its ridiculous if anyone chooses to agree with Madonna. Gwen is not much of the 80’s Madonna at all. She’s more of a Pinup, a retrodoll. Madonna was not the creator/starter of the image. Besides, Madonna’s music has been dead since the 80s faded. Her new music nowadays are jokes. Gwen definitely has a more vibrant/appealing control on music than Madonna attempts to have in this decade. I think Madonna was the 80s and will always be the 80s. Gwen is definitely a new pool to tune to.
