Madonna, Lady Gaga

Hydrangeas aren't the only thing Madonna's been sniffing at lately.

Lady Gaga has spoken openly about her love for the Material Girl and has paid homage to the pioneering pop star both in song and performance style. But it appears that her admiration society isn't a mutual one.

When a French newspaper recently asked about her superfamous adoring fan, Madonna didn't have much to say in the way of encouragement—or appreciation.

"As for Lady Gaga, I have no comment to make about her obsessions having to do with me because I don't know whether her behavior is rooted in something deep and meaningful, or superficial," Madonna reportedly told Le Soir.

(Fun fact: Lady Gaga translates crudely into Silly Lady.)

Madonna's rep, Liz Rosenberg didn't immediately have a comment regarding the interview, but she told E! News, "I do know that [Madonna] has said many supportive things about Gaga over the years."

The other diva's rep hasn't yet returned a request for comment, but...any perceived Madonna diss has got to kind of suck for Gaga, who, when "Born This Way" came out, was accused by the hoi polloi of ripping off Madonna's "Express Yourself."

After performing the hit tune at the Grammys, Gaga said on The Tonight Show that she had received an email from Madonna's camp in support of the song.

"You know, there is really no one that is a more adoring and loving Madonna fan than me," Gaga said. "I am the hugest fan personally and professionally."

Madonna's rep later told E! News, however, that she did not know of any such email coming from their corner.
