Babylon is a diss track

So, I might sound stupid, and I know Gaga and Madonna are friends, but let me explain.

Babylon has been compared to Vogue by Madonna since it was released, and I was bored and looked for the lyrics and man I'm crazy asf rn lol

Born This Way and Express Yourself were the ultimate pop battle on 2011-12. The lyrics "That's gossip" could mean how media and Madonna fans were talking bad about Gaga and saying she's a wannabe or a copy of Madonna.

"Rip that song" could mean how Gaga sampled (?) / is similar to Vogue, representing how BTW was a rip-off of EY according to the internet.

"Battle for your life" could mean how Gaga had to battle to have a good reputation after all the events of the ARTPOP era made her have a kind of bad reputation.

I KNOW I SOUND STUPID BUT LIKE HELLO

She didn’t sample, but she knew the comparisons were going to start again because she finally released an Old-Way influenced voguing House track (which was farrrr overdue imo) so it all kind of fits. Considering Madge didn’t invent vogueing or House music, but a lot of people feel so, she knew what was coming. It’s all just gossip though :trollga:

With that avi and you missed the chance to type “i might say something stupid” :ally: but yeah the first time I listened to Babylon final version with the 90’s house production similar to Vogue and the “rip that song, that’s gossip” I assumed it was about that. It was never confirmed and the world was too busy dealing with COVID that no one really cared about it but it probably is about that. Knowing Gaga she’d probably say it’s not and it probably isn’t.

I always interpreted it as a “diss track” to the tabloids that kept saying she and Bradley were a couple 

If you see me posting like crazy, I'm either bored or procrastinating.

Whenever some vile Madonna stan coming for Gaga saying she copied Vogue I like to remember them of this song released one year prior to Vogue:

also regarding the stupid 10+yr discussion about BTW vs EY here’s a song called Respect Yourself from 1972. pretty "reductive“ :reductive:

Also, the OG Haus Labs version has a resemblance to David Bowie's Fame. So, i agree with you in the "rip that song" part. I think it was her intention to made a song about her being "reductive" while making the song a little similar to iconic ones  of artists people accused her of copying

The demo had a bridge that sounded like her clapping back at someone too

 

My ears are burning up, you sure like to talk a lot
I heard about all the things you said (Babble on)
Your ears are burning up, talk is cheap but costs a lot
I heard about all the things you said (Babble on)
That's gossip

They are really good actors, that oscars performance. :O

The chemistry is off the charts. :cryga:

But I do think they were really good friends that helped each other and bonded over it, he helped with her acting, she helped with his singing. 

The melody that you choose can rescue you

I probably used the word "probably" too much. I typed that on my phone. :ororomunroe:

Rifek

This is the dance celebration of the culmination of this album, but it's really the start that occurs after every finish. When we've completed a task or defeated a challenge, the end is not the end. This is a new journey, and in Chromatica I will dance my way through all the pain, and every transition I make is into a new me, which is consistently a miracle. I wow to always have something to celebrate. And frankly gossip is the hallmark of civilization. Two people can't talk behind each other's backs, you need at least three people. And something that used to haunt me — gossip — is now a silly construct I can dance through. Babble on. I'll be in Babylon. Or Chromatica.
