Lady GaGa: Not actually saying it doesn't sound like Madonna

Lady GaGa seems a bit annoyed by everyone pointing out her new song Born Like Madonna is a bit like a Madonna song. She popped up on Leno to express herself:

She said, "There is really no one that is a more adoring and loving Madonna fan than me. I am the hugest fan personally and professionally.

"Well, the good news is that I got an email from her people and her, sending me their love and complete support on behalf of the single and if the queen says it shall be, then it shall be."
Naturally Madonna's business team will be wishing you success, GaGa, as it means the claim for damages down the line will be so much larger.

I'm a bit puzzled though. You love Madonna, Madonna wishes you luck... this doesn't actually say that you've not passed off an old Madonna song as your new one, does it? If I release a single called Bag Romance, would it be okay if I say I'm a professional fan?
