Shadow, who is credited as the producer of 'Born This Way', has described the initial reaction to the song being a Madonna copy as a "bummer" and asserted that it was "absolutely not influenced" by the 52-year-old pop icon.
"I think it was bulls**t to be honest. I guess there are a hundred songs that you could put a pitch shift and a BPM change on and loop and make them sound like anything. In addition, there are five songs on the radio right now that have the exact same chords and progression," he told GaGaNews.com.
"Actually there are five songs out that are exactly the same song, on the radio at the same time. Right now. Why doesn't anyone ever bring that up? That's a f**king felony."
The producer went on to acknowledge other stars who have copied GaGa since her launch back in 2009.
"How many people have been copying Gaga since she came out? Oh, I have that answer: everyone. Have you seen all the lightning bolts painted on faces, or the one hand eye cover-ups during photos?
"How about the fact that there was barely any dance music on the radio until 'Just Dance' came out? Come on motherf**kers, let's keep it real here. If we are going to talk about who is chasing who, I think we all know the answer to that."
Lady GaGa is due to release her second studio album Born This Way on May 23.
The popstar has revealed that the UK editions of the album will feature an extra track.
