Lady Gaga may be getting flak for the uncanny sonic similarities between her new single "Born This Way" and Madonna's "Express Yourself," and Christina Aguilera's "Not Myself Tonight" video last year bore a troubling resemblance in parts to Madonna's "Express Yourself" and "Human Nature" clips. But it turns out Gaga and Xtina aren't the only modern-day electropop divas influenced by Madge's iconic early-'90s era.
The new solo video by Gossip frontgoddess Beth Ditto--"I Wrote The Book," from her self-titled collaborative EP with Simian Mobile Disco, out March 8--is a loving tribute to Madonna's "Justify My Love" video and Truth Or Dare concert movie, and we must say, Beth gives good face here. "I Wrote The Book" seems like a knowing nod to Madonna, not a ripoff, so it just works.
