Lady Gaga has made it clear that her very public feud with Madonna is officially ancient history after she sent a sweet message to the Queen of Pop on social media.
The two were previously embroiled in a prolific disagreement over their songs Express Yourself and Born This Way, though they appeared to have buried the hatchet back in 2019.
Nearly four years later, Gaga told fans that things were still good with Madonna when she penned a supportive message on TikTok for the Like A Prayer singer.
Last week, Madonna made headlines around the world when she announced she would be hitting the road for her first Greatest Hits Tour later this year.
Several dates sold out within minutes, and additional shows were announced due to high demand, with Madonna later posting a video message to fans thanking them for their support.
“I want to say thank you to all of your fans for all of your love and support over the past few days,” the Grammy winner said. “I take none of it.”
She said: “I feel like the luckiest girl in the world and I’m so grateful for all of your support. I look forward to putting this show together and being on stage to celebrate the past four decades of my journey.” Can’t wait to spend a moment with all of you.”
And despite their past differences, fans were quick to note that Gaga was among the first to comment on Madonna’s TikTok, writing simply: “We love you am.”
Before their feud began, things weren’t always so acrimonious between the two pop divas.
Madonna was initially among Gaga’s biggest supporters, attending one of her live shows in New York and even joining the poker face singer in a Saturday Night Live sketch in the early years of her career.
However, when Gaga released Born This Way in 2011 – an instant spark compared to Madonna’s Express Yourself – the Evita star seemed less impressed, famously branded his rival “reductive” in a TV interview,
Things escalated when Madonna performed a mash-up of the two songs on tour, ending in a reprise of She’s Not Me from her 2008 album Hard Candy.
And while the feud went on for several years, it looked like they’d put it behind them in 2019, when the two singers were photographed hugging after Gaga won her Oscar.
Madonna announced her celebration tour in oh-so-Madonna way, featuring celebrity friends like Lil Wayne, Jack Black, and Amy Schumer, who got down to an outrageous game of truth or dare.
The European leg of the Celebration Tour begins on Saturday 14 October at London’s O2 Arena, with three UK shows in the following days.
Announcing the tour, Madonna said: “I’m excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes of giving my fans that show.”
