Grace Jones loves courting controversy and provoking all who come in her path—just check out her outrageous flirting in this recent interview published on the Quietus. Now, Jones has set her sights on Lady Gaga, whom she believes owes a sizable debt to her trailblazing ways.
“I’ve seen some things she’s worn that I’ve worn, and that does kind of piss me off,” Jones said in an interview with the Guardian. Gaga has apparently requested to work with Jones. “I just don’t play with other acts as a rule,” Jones responded. “I’d just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually.”
Gigwise has offered this comprehensive summary of everyone who has dissed Gaga in recent times—although it’s difficult not to think that she must be doing something right if that much bile has been aimed in her direction. “I wouldn’t go to see her,” said Jones, when asked if Gaga had any talent. Ouch.
