With the release of “Born This Way”, critics are wondering if Lady Gaga isn’t as original as they once thought she was. The song
blatantly rips off takes inspiration from Madonna’s “Express Yourself”, and a lot of Gaga’s past works are heavily influence by Her Madgesty.
But Lady Gaga has always been about much more than just her music. It’s all about the fashion, hello?!
But even her outrageous outfits—bar the meat dress and a couple of others—aren’t that original when you come to think of it. Juxtaposed against The Wizard of Oz‘s Cowardly Lion, Good Witch of the South, Tin Man et al., Gaga proves that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
