Los Angeles: In her forthcoming documentary, 'Gaga: Five Foot Two', Lady Gaga has discussed her long-running battle with Madonna.

In the movie, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and will debut on Netflix later this month, Gaga says she "always admired Madonna", reported Entertainment Weekly.

"So the thing with me and Madonna, for example, is that I admired her always. And I still admire her, no matter what she might think of me," she says.

Back in 2012, after the release of Gaga's hit 'Born This Way,' which some criticised as sounding very similar to Madonna's 'Express Yourself,' Madonna herself called the song "reductive."

In the new film, the 31-year-old singer says she is upset Madonna did not express her complaints in person and, instead, used the media to attack.

"She wouldn't look me in the eye and tell me that I was reductive or whatever. Telling me you think I'm a piece of s*** through the media? It's like a guy passing me a note
through his friend... I just want Madonna to push me up against the wall and kiss me and tell me I'm a piece of s***."

'Gaga: Five Foot Two' comes out on September 22.
