Madonna appears to have made a dig at Lady Gaga during rehearsals for her upcoming tour.

The singer was filmed performing Express Yourself before launching mid-song into a rendition of Gaga's track Born This Way - a song which has often been compared to Madonna's classic hit - while on stage in Israel.

In footage posted on YouTube, the queen of pop then launches straight into She's Not Me, from her 2008 record Hard Candy.

Gaga, with her eccentric style and pop anthems, is seen by some critics as a pretender to Madonna's crown.

Madonna has previously addressed the similarities between Express Yourself and Born This Way. She told The Daily Beast: "I thought, 'What a wonderful way to redo my song'. I mean, I recognised the chord changes. I thought it was... interesting."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

A cherished dream is elusive. It will be best to change gear, at least for the immediate future. Pursue a moneymaking opportunity with creative appeal. Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
