In an interview for Bang Showbiz, Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry talked about Lady Gaga and Madonna.
Here’s what she had to say…

“Gaga is truly talented and slightly mad. I find her encouraging.
It’s such a conservative period in the US. We have even had attempts at censorship, which I find appalling and terrible.
Artists like Gaga are necessary during periods like this.

Was I aware Madonna was copying certain elements of my style?
Yes.
Did I mind? Some parts yes, some parts no.
It was love/hate.
I loved her wildness and sexuality.
‘Borderline’ was the material I found most interesting.
She is a force to be reckoned with in the industry – and I commend that.”
