Icon says Lady Gaga is a copycat

By: Taren Vaughan

Always fierce and in a league of her own, Grace Jones has influenced the styles of numerous artists in the music industry. But there is one artist in particular that she is not all that impressed with.
Jones recently accused singer Lady Gaga of “copying” her style. To even further show her disapproval of Gaga’s swagga-jackin’, Jones refused to collaborate with superstar for a song. Here is what Jones told the Guardian on working with Gaga:

“Yes, she did (ask about a duet), but I said no. I’d just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually. Well, you know, I’ve seen some things she’s worn that I’ve worn, and that does kind of p**s me off. I wouldn’t go to see her.”

Now when I think of Lady Gaga, I always think of a young Madonna. But now that I really look at her, I can see a little of Ms. Jones in her too.
