Lady Gaga is sorry she called Madonna comparisons “retarted”

Lady Gaga made a faux pas when she let the “R” word slip during an interview with NME magazine.

As we recently posted, she was firing back at accusations that her song “Born This Way” is a rip-off of Madonna’s “Express Yourself,” saying…

“I’m a songwriter.
I’ve written loads of music.
Why would I try to put out a song and think I’m getting one over on everybody?
That’s retarded.
If you put the songs next to each other, side by side, the only similarities are the chord progression.
It’s the same one that’s been in disco music for the last 50 years.
Just because I’m the first fucking artist in 25 years to think of putting it on Top 40 radio, it doesn’t mean I’m a plaigarist, it means I’m fucking smart. Sorry.”

But, as Jennifer Aniston learned last year, dropping the “R” word is not OK, and Lady Gaga’s since apologized.
She told CNN in a statement…

“I consider it part of my life’s work and music to push the boundaries of love and acceptance.
My apologies for not speaking thoughtfully. To anyone that was hurt, please know that it was furiously unintentional.
An honest mistake, requires honesty to make.
Whether life’s disabilities, left you outcast bullied or teased, rejoice and love yourself today.”
