The ever-controversial Grace Jones has spoken of her disdain for the pop-phenomenon that is Lady Gaga. Speaking to The Guardian's Simon Hattenstone, Jones revealed how Lady Gaga approached her in the hope of working together, only to be firmly rejected.
'I'd just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me'.
Asked what she thought of Gaga's rising star, Jones dead-panned:
'I really don't think of her at all'.
In the midst of Gaga fever, Jones' comments will be seen as refreshing to some.
Personally I think the Gaga 'star' is bigger than her mediocre pop by numbers, insipid club tracks and vapid lyrics. I'll admit to liking Just Dance (when I'm drunk, or cleaning my house), but I'm afraid I just don't get the music. The woman, however, is endlessly fascinating (perhaps for all the wrong reasons), and she makes hot hot hot music videos. Taking my place firmly on the fence, I'll put it to you...
Grace or Gaga?
