I'm sure it's just a publicity stunt for the both of them, and they're both laughing at their fanbases going in on each other.
Without Gaga's consent, she couldn't put that performance on CD/DVD. At first,i thought of it as a cheap move but i though it over and it might be a tongue-in-cheek tribute to Gaga.
And why should Madonna be desperate? She has done it all, she doesn't need to prove herself any longer. Apart from Celine Dion, who else is still internationally relevant? I love Gaga and hope she has a healthy and long career, but to say that she's erasing Madonna's success is just delusional. Artists like MJ and Madonna will often be imitated but never be duplicated.
Did you not witness reductive-gate? Most of these younger Gaga fans do not care if Madonna has been around 30 years, Gaga is a treasure to them the way Madonna was to our generation, and it was fine to attack Madonna for her age and lack of a hit single in recent memory. The younger generation is very ADD and artists like MJ and Madge are utterly irrelevant in their eyes when we have Bieber and Gaga. And that's okay, I have no doubt when Gaga is 53 years old she'll be about where Belinda Carlisle or Taylor Dayne is now.
And nobody is calling Madonna desperate because she's still making music, they say she's desperate because she's hopping on pop trends expected from the likes of Katy and Rihanna. She'd been aging with dignity until HC came out. Does Springsteen need Justin Bieber to sell (and his album in the US has sold almost as well as MDNA) or do we need U2 to sound like Foster The People (who I actually like) to keep hip today? Bruce and U2 are contemporaries of M from the 80s and still can sell albums and concert tickets, but they're not trying to hop on the latest bandwagons for male artists/bands in hopes a few more teens who have no idea why they are legends to care. You have no idea how many non-fans I know who respected her have completely lost interest in her attempts at trying to fight people half her age and three times as hungry for the spotlight.
