Madonna Slams Lady Gaga With Express Yourself/Born This Way MashUp

So Madonna is kicking off her concert tour in Israel tonight!  Oh if I could be back there seeing that show.  When I visited Tel Aviv in December I saw this place where she is putting on her concert, in the Ramat Gan Stadium.  It is every bit as big and beautiful, maybe more so, than any state of the art stadium we have back here in the states.

Someone caught some video of Madonna rehearsing for the show.  Probably a better and more honest way to say that is someone intentionally leaked this footage (with Madonna's blessings I'm sure) of Madonna rehearsing for tonight's show.
