Madonna has apparently hit out at Lady Gaga in leaked alleged lyrics for a new song that have surfaced online.
The lyrics in question, reportedly from a track titled ‘Two Steps Behind Me’ sees the legendary pop star slam Gaga for apparently copying her style.
The Sun reports the lyrics read: ''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.”
It continues: ''Did you study me hard enough? You're never gonna be, you're just a wannabe me. Like a sister all messed-up, who's gonna help you out? In your fantasy, you can try it all. But you can't be me.”
''You can walk the walk, even talk the talk. But you'll always be two steps behind me.’'
The song is reportedly set for release later this year, which if true will no doubt cause controversy. None of this is confirmed, so take it all with a pinch of salt for now.

The popstars have come to blows in the past, when similarities were drawn between Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ and Madonna’s ‘Express Yourself’, with the latter hitting out at Gaga in a live performance of the track.
Lady Gaga’s Artpop is out now, new material from Madonna is expected to surface later this year.
