Madonna has told her fans that Lady Gaga rejected an offer to sing onstage with her.

Speaking to the crowd at her show in St Paul, Minnesota, Madonna said:

I invited her onstage to sing with me. But, she turned me down. It's OK. I've been rejected before. It builds a little character.


The Huffington Post reports that Madonna also said: "I have the best fans in the whole world. So take that, Lady Gaga!"

This follows Madonna accusing Gaga of copying her earlier this year. During a show in Atlantic City in September, Madonna dedicated her song 'Masterpiece' to Gaga, before saying: "I love her. I love her. I do love her. Imitation is the highest form of flattery."

In January Madonna claimed that Gaga's track 'Born This Way' sounded "familiar" to her 1989 hit 'Express Yourself'. Throughout this year's 'MDNA' tour, Madonna has mocked the similarities between the two songs by performing a mash-up of 'Express Yourself' and 'Born This Way' followed by a pointed snippet of a track called 'She's Not Me'.

Madonna was recently named as the biggest-selling female singles artist in UK chart history. New data from the Official Charts Company showed that she has shifted over 17.8 million singles in the UK since releasing her first track, 'Holiday', in 1984.
