Grace Jones Accuses Lady Gaga of Jacking Her StylePublished by Dior Noir on Monday, April 19, 2010 at 12:10 pm.
Lady Gaga might be ruling the pop-airwaves but not everybody is ready to bow down. The legendary Grace Jones, for instance, is not impressed by Gaga’s gimmicks, especially when they look all too familiar: “You know, I’ve seen some things she’s worn that I’ve worn, and that does kind of piss me off,” Jones told the UK Guardian. (So we’re guessing Amber Rose and Rihanna are on her list too?)
When asked what she thought of the “Poker Face” pop star Jones replied, “I really don’t think of her at all. I go about my business.” Well then!
Turns out Lady Gaga wanted to collaborate with Grace Jones but the 61-year-old style trailblazer said no: “I’d just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually.”
Grace’s comments come hot on the heels of M.I.A. trashing Gaga for being a copycat. M.I.A told EW.com: “People say we’re similar, that we both mix all these things in the pot and spit them out differently, but she spits it out exactly the same! None of her music’s reflective of how weird she wants to be or thinks she is. She models herself on Grace Jones and Madonna, but the music sounds like 20-year-old Ibiza music, you know? She’s not progressive, but she’s a good mimic. She sounds more like me than I f—ing do!”
