The release of her latest track, "Born This Way", sent Lady Gaga minions into a rabid craze. The song was surrounded by a heated debate concerning its relation to pop icon, Madonna's, "Express Yourself" and "Vogue".

David Bowie is welcomed to the party with Madonna as Lady Gaga enters her own "Space Oddity" in "Born This Way".
