Grace Jones Says Lady Gaga is ‘Copying’ Her Style
Lady Gaga‘s eclectic style and out-of-this world antics have captured the hearts of fans across the globe, but the eccentric pop star has been rubbing some fellow artists the wrong way. Just last week, British rapper, M.I.A. spewed some nasty words about Gaga, calling her “a good mimic” and explaining that her style was “not progressive.”
M.I.A. accused Gaga of jocking her style, and it seems like she’s not the only one who feels that way. In a recent interview with the UK Guardian, the iconic Grace Jones expressed some similar sentiments about the pop star. “Well, you know, I’ve seen some things she’s worn that I’ve worn, and that does kind of piss me off.” Jones said.
When asked if Gaga had reached out to work with her, Jones said yes, but explained that she never considered it even for a second. “Yes, she did, but I said no,” Jones said. “I’d just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually.
The Jamaican-born legend went on to explain that Gaga and her antics did not occupy any space in her thoughts, saying, “I really don’t think of her at all. I go about my business.” You can bet that Grace Jones won’t be catching a live performance anytime soon. In response to a final query about Gaga’s talent, she expressed her distaste as simply as she could. “I wouldn’t go to see her,” she said.
