Lady Gaga has been accused of lying about receiving an email from Madonna on Jay Leno’s television show.

Mother monster has been riding a tidal wave of criticism about the similarities between Born This Way and Madonna’s 1989 hit Express Yourself since its debut a week ago.

The 52-year-old pop legend added fuel to the fire by uploading a live performance of Express Yourself to her YouTube account – seen by many as a less than subtle dig at her younger rival – but Gaga insisted she had Madonna’s blessing when she dicussed the controversy with Jay Leno (below).

“I got an e-mail from her and her people sending me their love and complete support on behalf of the single,” she told the talk show host during their interview.

The thing is – Madge might not have sent it.

A rep for the superstar told CNN: “I am not aware that Madonna sent GaGa an e-mail.”


It could be a simple misunderstanding but this is starting get a little embarrassing for the fame monster.
