Lady Gaga is pop music's magical muse.
It appears Lady Gaga's honing her craft of wizardry on some of music's biggest stars, from Madonna to most recently Taylor Swift. She continues to exercise the art of existential happenings upon her choosing, and the results are not only eerily accurate, but may be used for good and evil (depends on the cauldron).
Last year, Gaga used her powers to halt Madonna's sonic sorcery after a demo from the "Rebel Heart" singer leaked titled "Two Steps Behind." Many speculated the lyrics were aimed at Mother Monster, who's seen shade from Madonna in the past after the self-proclaimed Queen felt Gaga's "Born This Way" ripped off "Express Yourself."
You’re a copycat / Where is my royalty? / You’re a pretty girl / I’ll give you that / But stealing my recipe / It’s an ugly look.
You can walk the walk / Even talk the talk / But you’ll always be / Two steps behind me.
Immediately following the leak, Gaga posted a snap on Instagram warning, we assume at Madonna, to halt the hate.
Careful witch, I'll put a spell on you. Or maybe I already did.
Madonna's palms began to sweat, bottom lip quivered, heart-rate plummeted - Lady Gaga began her spell. She knew a peace offering was the only surefire exit to escape Gaga's wrath, and the result was a re-post of Gaga's photo with the semi-iconic "Rebel Heart" face wrapping.
Loud and clear, but the damage was done. Gaga responded with another Instagram post and a message for Madonna:
Friendship is only friendship when it is real. Passionate and relentless. Forgiving and joyful. Don't forget today to have real moments with your friends. Not a text, or a tweet, an Instagram-- that's all deceit. Hold real hands, kiss genuine lips, be a truly strong human force.
Since then, Madonna's experienced leak after leak, the infamous cape fall, lackluster response to her "Ghosttown" and "Bitch I'm Madonna" music videos etc. And while Gaga has clearly harnessed the art of manipulation upon her discretion, she does use her powers for good. Over the weekend, Taylor Swift acknowledged Gaga's gift, crediting the "Cheek To Cheek" chanteuse for introducing her to boyfriend Calvin Harris. The two have been dating for several months and are both madly in love - Harris this week said he's insanely happy - and it's all thanks to Lady Gaga's supernatural talents.
@alexandergold Go read Gaga's tweet that she sent me a few months ago. It's good love luck. Because it's not a tweet. It's a magical spell.

Again, loud and clear. Gaga responded she only casts happy spells. Unless you're Madonna, basically.

Interestingly enough, Calvin Harris' ex, Rita Ora, split with now ex-boyfriend Ricky Hil this weekend after a year of dating. Coincidence? We think not.
Fortunately, Mother Monster has taken kindly to BreatheHeavy.com in the past, and we'd like to keep it that way. Now, excuse us while we light several Eau de Gaga-scented candles and kneel below our newly constructed monument and pray for one of Gaga's happy spells.
