On Frank DeCaro’s OutQ radio show on Sirius XM, the “Love Boat” star and singer accused the “Born This Way” songstress of being worse than a Madonna rip-off.
“I can tell you, to me, Lady Gaga is Madonna with diarrhea,” the 60-year-old Spanish musician, who has released seven albums since 1977, said.
Charo added, “I don’t like it when somebody copies somebody and just adopt it. Like, their own idea.”
Lady Gaga responded to the Madonna comparisons on Leno this week.
“I got an email from [Madonna’s] people and her sending me their love and complete support on behalf of the single,” she told the host, “and if the queen says it shall be, then it shall be.”
