Lady Gaga put her differences aside to praise Madonna

Lady Gaga put her differences aside with Madonna to praise the singer on Monday for the 'brave' speech she gave when receiving the Woman Of The Year gong at the Billboard Music Awards.

As she accepted the prestigious paperweight at the event on Friday night the 58-year-old railed against sexism and claimed she had been raped on a rooftop in New York.

Musing on the speech, the 30-year-old Poker Face star tweeted: '@Madonna your speech at the Billboard Music Awards was inspiring. You’re so brave & strong.
'Thanks for being that for us girls we need that.'

The dynamic duo have not been on the best of terms in the past, with Madge believing Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, borrows too much of her style for comfort.

But her young rival was clearly impressed by the Material Girl's speech after she received her award from Anderson Cooper.

She said: 'Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant misogyny, sexism, constant bullying and relentless abuse.

'When I first moved to New York, I was a teenager, it was 1979, and New York was a very scary place. In the first year, I was held up at gunpoint, raped on a rooftop with a knife digging into my throat, and I had my apartment broken into and robbed so many times I just stopped bolting the door.'

The Vogue singer, who is worth $800 million, also claimed that while it is fine to be 'cute and sexy,' being smart and having 'an opinion that is out of line with the status quo' is frowned upon due to the oppressive patriarchy. 
Back in October Gaga launched into a diatribe about how different she is from Madonna after being compared to the star.
