Within five hours of its release, Lady Gaga’s new single Born This Way is number one on iTunes in 23 countries!
The title track to the singer’s much awaited second album has smashed it’s way to the top spot in the UK, the US, Canada, Spain, Germany and 18 other countries (and surely more to come) despite only being released yesterday.
The success of the track has been tainted by its similarities to MAdonna’s 1989 hit Express Yourself.
Blogger-supreme and Gaga’s friend, Perez Hilton responded to the comparisons by tweeting “Express Yourself 2.0, is that what people are saying? I’ll take that!”
Elton John also backed the star saying that a comparison with the Queen of pop is certainly not a bad thing.
