Little monsters, you can now relax. Madonna’s latest song, "Two Steps Behind" is not about Lady Gaga after all. Read on for further details.

Ever since the new track made its way to the internet, netizens were quick to speculate that it was a diss directed specifically at the “Bad Romance” singer.

It’s snarky lyrics include: "You're a copycat, get back/I'm always on your mind," which many believed were in reference to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” that sounds a lot like her earlier hit “Express Yourself.”

During a Twitter Q&A about Madonna’s upcoming album, her manager was quick to clear things up.

"That song is NOT about Gaga or anyone in particular The song is an unfinished demo she had no intention of finishing or releasing along with many others. She has NO ill will towards Gaga. It's nonsense. She was listening to the Tony Bennett [and Gaga] duet album last week and appreciating it,” he wrote.

Madonna was also quick to say that she found it “amusing” and “flattering” that Lady Gaga was trying to be more like her. To prove that there was no bad blood between the two of them, the Queen of Pop even covered “Bad Romance” while she was performing in Tel Aviv.

Some may think that her performance was a quick diss at Lady Gaga, but the latter says that she took it as nothing but a compliment. In an interview with LA Times,  the singer said she did not care if Madonna was trying to piss her off by singing “Born This Way.”

“I looked up to her for a long time. As a punk-rocker from New York, I’ve basically been hoping that I would become so good that one day I would piss off Madonna!” she claims.
