But does Gaga's checklist of "inspirations" end there? Not according to electropop artist Cheeks, who just posted a viral video that points out the parellels between "Born This Way" and several other pop hits--including Adam Lambert's "Fever," which Gaga actually wrote, and tunes by TLC and Kelly Clarkson.
See if you can spot all the similarities in Cheeks' funny-but-true mashup:
OK, so maybe a couple of the reference points here are a little bit of stretch, but the structural makeup of many pop songs nowadays is getting to be pretty samey. Perhaps Lady Gaga didn't rip anyone off deliberately--maybe it has just become harder and harder for anyone, even an envelope-pusher like Gaga, to come up with truly new ideas.
