Madonna Promises/Threatens to Share the Stage With Lady Gaga

Remember that suspiciously familiar melody in Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" that sounded more than a wee bit like Madonna's "Express Yourself"? Yeah... so does Madge, who issued Gaga a very public noogie over the weekend. After simultaneously praising and insulting Gaga (yet again), Her Madgesty moved on to promising (threatening?) to share the stage with Lady G "very soon."

"I'm going to dedicate this next song ['Masterpiece'] to Lady Gaga," Madonna told the Atlantic City crowd on Saturday night. "Because you know something? I love her. I love her. I do love her. Imitation is the highest form of flattery." Uh-oh. Elton John is NOT going to be happy about that backhanded comment.

"One day, very soon, we're going to be onstage together," Madonna continued [check it out around the six-minute mark in the video below]. "You think I'm kidding? I'm not Lady Gaga."

While I have no idea what that last part means—is Gaga a famous serial kidder, never delivering on promised collabos?—I am extremely curious to see what comes of this ominous promise. Will Mother Monster and the mother of two duet on a song? Present an award together? Or perhaps this is all a lead-in to Madonna burning Gaga in effigy. Stay tuned!
