Three years ago, Twitter was just a baby,  I opened an account and tried Tweeting from the Independent Spirit Awards and the Oscars. Not that I even knew what to call it back then.

Is the yolk on us? Watching Lady Gaga’s performance of “Born This Way” at the Grammys last night, I was reminded of another blonde, gay-friendly, superstar of song/dance in her mid-20s: Madonna doing “Express Yourself” some 25 years ago.

There’s a little bit of “Vogue” in there as well.

And judging by the press I’m seeing today, I’m hardly the only one that’s noticed the similarities.

Gaga channels Madonna

This kid would be a great guest on “Letterman.”
