Lady Gaga celebrated her 26th birthday earlier this week, and the Interwebz were aflutter with little monsters' birthday wishes to her -- Twitter, YouTube, even Billboard's website were sending their well wishes. One person who didn't tell her happy birthday, however, was Madonna. On the day of all days which Gaga could have expected Madonna to be cordial, respectful even, Madonna turns around and metaphorically bitch slaps Gaga in the face. Of course, all of this cattiness took place on YouTube. And it was all in the name of Nicki Minaj.

In this video, Madonna, M.I.A. and the "Luvin'" cast wish Minaj a happy birthday. Madonna also gives Minaj a birthday kiss -- not a kiss of Britney-Madonna proportions, but a kiss nonetheless.

So how, exactly, is this catty? Well, Nicki Minaj's birthday was in December, and the above video was filmed in December, when Minaj, Madonna and M.I.A. had filmed the music video for "Give Me All Your Luvin'."

Why wait four months and upload it to YouTube on the very day of Gaga's birth? Because it's easier to be passive aggressively rude in a YouTube video than by throwing Gaga the bird in public. It also stirs up controversy, and the Queen of Pop could use a bit more of that lately -- oh, and it drums up interest in her new album, MDMA, which dropped Tuesday, and Minaj's new album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, to be released this Tuesday.

Earlier this week Madonna also pissed off deadmau5 when she introduced Aviccii at Ultra Music Festival and said ""How many people in this crowd have seen Molly?" After deadmau5 took to Twitter in anger, Madonna came back and said she was referring to the song "Have You Seen Molly?" by Cedric Gervais. Clever.

Like the world is going to end because some no talent government slut doesn't say Happy Birthday to Lady GaGa, Madonna has never had any real talent for people to place her so high.. wow the bitch has been around on Earth longer than her, their should be no reason for Madonnas envy and hatred towards GaGa.. seriously GaGa plays piano + sings.. and Madonna does what? Sits around letting people write her music.. just like her post modern self Rihanna! Not Lady GaGa because she is much more talented than both those slimy leeches

No offense, but Madonna should not waste her time wishing the thief of her music a happy birthday.  Btw, you should spend more time in school polishing your grammar and spelling abilities, as well as what constitutes good singing and talent, rather than paying attention to lady (reductive) gaga.

Your a fucking idiot if you still think that gaga has stole from Madonna, if you think that then you mine as well say everyone in music has "stole" from Mj, The Beatles, David Bowie, ect...no one has stole anything, you stupid ass media thumper. Madonna wasnt the first to do this shit anyways....so that stupid bitch stole also "in your words"
