Lady Gaga has been accused of 'ripping off' Madonna once again, this time on her new single 'Applause'.

The pair previously came to blows over Gaga's general style and the similarities between 'Born This Way' and 'Express Yourself', with Madonna branding Gaga as 'reductive'. Now, the Fame star has come under fire from Madge fans for 'Applause' baring a striking resemblence to Madge's 'Girls Gone Wild' from her 2012 album MDNA. Compare the two tracks below.

One Youtube user has even altered the pitch to create a mash-up of the two to highlight the similarities. Listen to the mix below. 

'Applause' was released early after being leaked online and Gaga, in hallmark dramatic fashion, declared it a "pop music emergency".
