There could be a hundred people in a room, and 99 don’t believe in you, but all you need is for Madonna to remind you that she was in the room first.

If you’re not living under a rock, chances are you’ve seen clips spliced together of Lady Gaga’s coined phrase. You know, the one where she showers Bradley Cooper with praise for taking a chance on her to play the lead in A Star Is Born. In a half-a-dozen interviews or so, Gaga said something to the effect of:

“There could be a hundred people in the room, and 99 don’t believe in you, but all you need is just one person to believe in you.”

Since then, clips of her repeating the phrase from different days, in different outfits, during different interviews, became a viral sensation. It seemed harmless to poke fun at the recycled compliment, that is… until today.

Over the weekend, a friend texted me a decades-old clip of an interview Madonna gave where she said something very similar.

Hers went: “There’s a hundred people in the room, and 99 people say they liked it, I only remember the one person who didn’t like it.”

Hilarious, juicy, but no big deal right? I figured it was worth a post on social media, because… followers, bro.

WELP, a mere two hours after BreatheHeavy’s Instagram post of the clip, Madonna caught wind of it after Giovanni Bianco, creative director at Vogue Italia, re-posted it as an Instagram story. There was a caption a fan added on the video that read: “my girl does and says everything always first.”

It’s worth reminding you Gaga and Madonna have **** heads for years, mainly since the Born This Way era. There’s countless comparison posts of the two on the Internets.

The Rebel Heart singer also posted a photo on her feed with a caption, “Don’t F*^k with me Monday.” It’s not clear if it’s related to the Gaga shade or not.

Look, I was hoping to make a few of you laugh, not stir the pot between both pop divas’ fanbases. I’m actually impressed how quickly that traveled, but low-key cringing for Madonna. Have you seen Gaga’s Netflix documentary? She genuinely doesn’t understand Queen M’s wrath, and this latest move is even more confusing.

What are we to take away from this? It appears Madonna is still very much upset at Gaga, and you can bet your life Gaga will never utter those words again. I know her ARTPOP could mean anything, but damn.

UPDATE: Madonna deleted it from her Instagram stories prior to the 24-hour expiration, but the Internet is forever.
