“I’d just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually,” was the curt reply from Grace Jones when the “Pull Up To The Bumper” crooner was asked her thoughts on pop sensation Lady Gaga in an interview with England’s The Guardian this week.
The “Love Game” star has a legion of “Little Monsters” marching to the beat of her drum, but avant garde goddess and fashion icon Jones isn’t among them. Grace, now in her sixties, told the newspaper that Gaga once approached her about a possible collaboration between the pair â€” but the singer/model/and View To Kill actress turned Gaga down, branding the pop star an annoying copycat.
Grace, who has been hitting the stage in eye-catching, outlandish outfits for close to four decades, minced no words when asked if she thinks Gaga borrowed her own nightmarish style ideas from the legend.
“Well, you know, I’ve seen some things she’s worn that I’ve worn, and that does kind of piss me off,” the former Andy Warhol muse told The Guardian. “I wouldn’t go to see her,” she added.
Do you think Lady Gaga hijacked Grace Jones’ style?
