Madonna has aimed another barb at Lady Gaga over the similarities between “Express Yourself” and “Born This Way.”

Earlier this year Madge called out Gaga saying the song was “reductive” and claimed “it felt familar” when she first heard it. Now, in an interview with a Brazilian TV Show, Madonna Joked about the song’s writing credits. “I’m a really big fan of [“Born This Way”]. I’m glad that I could help Gaga write it,” she said.

Madonna has also taken aim at the song on her current MDNA tour, In which she performs a mash-up of “Born This Way” and “Express Yourself” followed by a track called “She’s Not Me.”

Lady Gaga doesn’t find this that funny. She said in an interview with NME eariler this year, “I will look you in your eyes and tell you that I am not dumb enough or moronic enough to think that you are dumb enough or moronic enough not to see that I would have stolen a melody. If you put the songs next to each other, side by side, the only similarities are the chord progression.”
