Gaga's sorry she called Madonna comparisons 'retarded'

Mother Monster Lady Gaga made a faux paw when she let the R word slip during an interview with NME magazine.

The 25-year-old was firing back at accusations that her song Born This Way is a rip-off of Madonnas Express Yourself, saying, Im a songwriter. Ive written loads of music. Why would I try to put out a song and think Im getting one over on everybody? Thats retarded.

That's not all:

"If you put the songs next to each other, side by side, the only similarities are the chord progression," Gaga told NME. "It's the same one that's been in disco music for the last 50 years. Just because I'm the first f **ing 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 f**ing smart. Sorry."

But, as Jennifer Aniston learned last year, dropping the R word is not OK, and Gagas since apologized.

"I consider it part of my life's work and music to push the boundaries of love and acceptance, Gaga told CNN in a statement. My apologies for not speaking thoughtfully. To anyone that was hurt, please know that it was furiously unintentional.

She continues, An honest mistake, requires honesty to make. Whether life's disabilities, left you outcast bullied or teased, rejoice and love yourself today."
