Everything old is new again.

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.

    It’s pretty scary how much of an “Express Yourself” her new song is a ripoff of.

    But I have to say, while I wouldn’t watch the show, I saw the egg replay later on. I was hoping it wouldn’t open up much in the same way the pods didn’t open up in Spinal Tap. :)
