Grace Jones vs Lady GaGa: Meow!

| Filed under: Music MinuteCelebrity FeudsSuper SeniorsLady GaGa


Sounds to us like someone is bitter!

Grace Jones apparently thinks way too highly of herself, and said this bullshiz when asked what she thought about Lady GaGa and reports the two were collaborating:

“I really don’t think of her at all. I go about my business. 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 piss me off. I wouldn’t go to see her."


We think there's nothing sadder than an washed-up diva who has to stay relevant by criticizing someone infinitely more successful than they ever were!

    Like yourself?

    There is some truth to wht she says.
    I would not see either of them.

  3. 3

    These two both do not have original style when it comes to fashion. The only people they are copying are the Japanese, who have dressed just as badly as they have and more outrageous for years!!!!!!!!!!

  4. 4

    Well obviously, I don't even know who Grace Jones is.

  5. 5

    Grace Jones was using those crazy tactics back in the 80's, got give it to her. Lady Gaga is just copying her style

  6. 6

    mario - i hope you understand you sound like a child. throwing insults at the great Grace Jones because she doesn't share your opinion??? you sound like a pissed off 10 year old after someone talked about their mom……grow up……..

  7. 7

    Grace Jones always frightened me as a child………

  8. 8

    Perez, I love you and I love Gaga and I know you are absolutely nuts about her. But is will be another 40 years before she can even come close to Miss Jones. Grace was and is a one off, Model, Actress, Singer living Artwork. Gaga is poptastic and talented, but you must admin she is totally derivative. If you don't insult Grace or her fans we won't point to Gaga's unoriginality.

  9. 9

    wow perez, we get it your in love with gaga, but grace jones is the ORIGINAL. gaga even asked to work with her and grace turned her ass down.

  10. 10

    Wow. You'll say just about anything to defend your precious Lady GaGa. I'm thinking it is incredibly inaccurate to say that GaGa is "infinitely more successful" than Grace Jones is. Just like you, she is entitled to her opinion and I bet many agree with her. Grace Jones is/was amazing and she paved the way for all of these hacks (Lady GaGa for example) who try to act like they invented the style they are currently sporting. So sad that the wool has been pulled over your eyes. Boo, Perez.

  11. 11

    Perez. Your the Lame one. Grace was the original Outrageous Diva. Before Gaga. She did it first and if anyone has the right to be pissed, it's her.

  12. Shak says – reply to this


    That's a bit of an uneducated response to Grace Jones' comment. Grace Jones is an icon in the fashion, music and art world, and she definitely wasn't a try hard at getting there. People clocked on to her talent and individualism, whereas with Gaga it's completely thought out, controlled and un-natural.

  13. 13

    Sounds to us like someone is telling the truth.

  14. 14

    Grace doesn't understand that young people NEVER think of her. Most don't know who she is. Gaga's accessable music gets people who wouldn't otherwise be familiar with performance art to be interested in it. Grace shouldn't bite the hand that is feeding her career. Does she really think she would be featured in blogs like this if she wasn't talking about GAGA?

  15. 15

    Boy! How much is Perez paid by Lady Gaga to write such stupidities?
    Grace Jones is an icon, a real one, she did all of these things way before anyone else.

  16. 16

    You're just a 14 year old high school girl, Perez. If anyone speaks against someone you are obsessed with, you use your "gossip" site to attack them. I'm so disgusted.

  17. 17

    Grace Jones is amazing and extremely original! As is Gaga… Jones dressed like that in the 70's, while Gaga took it to another level! I love both and would definitely go see both live!

  18. 18

    Not for nothing, man, but you've made a living out of criticizing people infinitely more successful that you ever were.

  19. Olcia says – reply to this


    So its ok for everybody else being criticized for 'copying' Gaga, but when she is accused for copying then it's lame?? A bit of a hypocrite are we?

  20. 20

    Who has been around for so long? there is a reason. Anyways I think Gaga is sweet and great for pushing "be yourself" but she is not orginal and what Grace is saying is the right. i think gaga Is great for gen Y who dont remember David Bowie, Grace and Boy George. Someone had do do it for this generation so good on for Gaga.

  21. 21

    Re: LeslieLewdness – @ 4 - which simply shows your age…….

  22. 22

    Re: fiona – While I agree with your first sentence, I am a fan of both Grace and GaGa.
    The outlandish outfits do recall Grace's style, but GaGa is not a copycat.
    They were both originals, and I appreciate their sounds.
    It's worth noting that Grace Jones in not accusing Lady Gaga of ripping off her MUSIC.

  23. 23

    what up Perez does ga ga get your d@#k hard or what???? why you always sidin' and givin her props when in reality she is not that original….pleaaazzze i'm the real bitch up in here.. Mz. Jones is 100% right and she has the balls to say it.. Gu Gu is a teeny weeny mouse — who does nothing but squeaks music out;; the only way she gets attention is from her outfits….GO GRACE JONES.. YOU ROCK MOMMA

  24. 24

    Saw Grace Jones last summer. She was GREAT!
    Lady GaGa is just a cheap and uninteresting copy of Grace.

  25. 25

    I think it's sadder to see how unsophisticated the general public's taste and perception is given the fact they still pay a narcissist like Gaga to act like such a faux-eccentric.

    Keep Sandra Bernharding Gags, Perezito, being sycophantic will get you places. *rolls eyes*

  26. 26

    You know there is truth in her statement. Not falling on the race sword but alot of black folks are tired of white artists establishing themselves off the black artists originality without the credit. Remember Elvis?

  27. 27

    One album and one EP does not equal "infinitely more successful" than Grace Fucking Jones.

  28. 28

    Grace "washed up" LMAO Just because this woman has already payed her dues and paved the way for others and now is able to sit back and reap the fruits of her labor out of the public eye does NOT make her washed up. And Grace was FIERCE in her day and still is. She was an original and can say whatever the fukc she wants to say, and there is truth to it. Gaga has even said herself she was inspired, in part, by Grace so duh! I like Gaga, don't get me wrong, and Grace's words were a bit tart, but there is truth to it.

  29. albes says – reply to this


    We all know since Gaga came out that she was copying Grace Jones, Perez is the only one that can't admit that.

    It is not about who is more successful, it is about Gaga copying her.

  30. 30

    Re: Chandler

    Wow. I would hope that "young people" aren't the ignorant, unintelligent people I thought they were. How sad if the new generation never thinks about the icons who paved the way for the GaGas, the Adam Lamberts and the Ke$has in the world. Proclaiming ignorance is probably not the best strategy.

  31. 31

    Grace is an original….show some respect!

  32. 32

    Grace JOnes was relevant and original for her time. Now Lady GaGa the same for the current. There really is no comparison. In time there is almost always a step up or even a side step if you understand that. Lady GaGa says she was influenced my several artists. I have no doubt that Grace Jones as well as David Bowie (same era) both influenced GaGa even in the slightest. Like I stated, a step up in this case. Did Grace Jones write and compose her own music? Anyway, Grace Jones I think should be flattered not pissed. But, in these paparazzi media whore times, drama makes one relevant again. If GJones changes her tune (haha), maybe GaGa would feel flattered to work with GJones. who knows.

  33. 33

    Grace Jones is an icon and has always been original in her outfits and her style. Gaga is a poor imitation of Jones and countless other people yet brands herself as being some creative genius. Gaga deserves to be called out by Jones and I hope his brings her back to earth.

  34. 34

    maybe you should take stop brown nosing gaga all the time -
    madonna/bjork/grace and so many others were all doing this 30 years ago. gaga is obviously copying them - and thats original?

    'We think there's nothing sadder than an washed-up diva who has to stay relevant by criticizing someone infinitely more successful than they ever were!'

    theres nothing sadder then another copy of madonna.

  35. 35

    Also Perez, how can you jump on Christina for happening to have the same hairstyle as Gaga two years ago yet Grace Jones is a 'washed up' diva for pointing out the obvious fact that Gaga has been heavily influenced by Jones? Hypocritcal and bitter much?

  36. 36

    Funny how mad you were when Christina Aguilera was copying Gaga … just admit it, Gaga has taken what Grace Jones did and made it palatable for the masses. She, too, is derivative.

    Grace gave an honest answer to a question she was asked, everyone sees Grace's influence in Gaga's style; it was a fair question and an honest response. And success has nothing to do with the fact that Grace Jones will always be considered a trailblazer and icon in the fashion industry. Let's see how well-regarded and influential Gaga is in 25 years and then we can have this discussion.

  37. 37

    Perez your a dick. Lady Gaga is completely copying Grace Jones style and she's not even doing it well and her music is beyond shit. It shouldnt even be counted as music.

  38. 38

    Regardless of who is more talented or most original, Grace Jones has a vile personality. Nothing to look up to there. Extremely unprofessional keeping people waiting for hours as claimed in the article. Seems like she is not a considerate person at all. I don't agree that Gaga has copied her just because, if true, she has worn a few similar outfits. If that was all Gaga did then perhaps that argument might be valid. Furthermore, Gaga is a humble and kind human being which is worth a million times more than any little bit of talent Grace Jones might claim she has. I just hope Gaga never "copies" her vile personality.

  39. 39

    Perez, you aren't fit to lick the dogshit from Mz. Jones bootheel, much less CRITICIZE her! She is an icon! GaGa will be too, someday, and you know what? YOU'LL still be NOTHING! HAH!

  40. 40

    Grace has been cool and great since the days of Studio 54! Her last CD (last YEAR) was awesome. She was also a model and an actress (and a fashion icon). Gaga will eventually stop being the flavor of the month and will crash down the hole of obscurity herself.

  41. 41

    Team Gaga. Diva Grace always grossed me out.

  42. 42

    Lady Gaga has more musical talent, more musical education, a higher appreciation of art, a better ear, more intuitive sensibility than most any artist short of Bob Dylan. And thank God she didn't go the boring, cliche'd "indie" route.

  43. 43

    Lady HaHa in the same league as Grace Jones?It boggles the mind.Do you have a mind Mario,or just a contract with HaHa?

  44. 44

    Perez is one delusional fucked up donkey face. Gotta give credit to Grace for speaking the truth. Gag me is not original but a copier. Fuck you Perez & Fuck you Gag me.

  45. 45

    Well, Grace Jones was here first. GO GRACE!

  46. 46

    Gaga changes her style almost daily. Which outfit, Sweetie, was off your rack? So pathetic. Jones has gotten more attention for bashing Gaga than for her music of late. Note: many of Jones' hits were written by other people, so it's funny reading Jones pontificate on originality.

  47. 47

    'We think there's nothing sadder than an washed-up diva who has to stay relevant by criticizing someone…' Yeah it works for you Perez! GaGa is gone…finished…kaput…so yesterday!

  48. 48

    Grace Jones is the ORIGINAL. Grace Jones is an ICON. GaGa is an interesting absurdity that THIS generation has not been exposed to. Those of us who lived through the evolution and brilliant success of Ms Jones definitely see some "borrowing' of concepts (not necessarily copying). Calling a legend "washed-up" just to "suck-up" to a celebrity friend destroys your credibility. Time to get back to reporting gossip without personal opinions Mario …these tantrums and tirades designed to gain points with important people has become very transparent.

  49. 49

    better be cool…Ga Ga will be in her place soon enough…disco Diva's don't really last…except with the Gays

  50. 50

    But Perez, all you do is criticize people who are infinitely more successful than you.

  51. 51

    Perez stop trying to defend everything GaGa is doing..you know very well Grace Jones was doing all this stuff too back in the 80s and you dang well GaGa is also copying your other fave artist Rosin Murphy and Rosin even said the same thing. GaGa is good but she is not original and special. I like some of her songs but she is not the best thing ever….I wish everyone would stop kissing up so much on someone.

  52. 52

    I agree. Grace was and will always represent. I agree..Grace was way before her time. Lady Gaga is cool but shes not so original. Being outlandish and over the top has only been mastered by the one and only Grace Jones. Gaga is cute for the folks that don't know Grace, but the true real folks outside of Perez Ladygaga suck up ass kiss assworld…we know better..

  53. 53

    "We think there's nothing sadder than an washed-up diva who has to stay relevant by criticizing someone infinitely more successful than they ever were!"

    the best quote you ever said Perez mainly because THAT IS ALL YOU DOING FOR A FUCKING LIVING YOU SAD PIECE OF SHIT! =]

  54. 54

    I won't go see either of them. I'm sick of Lady YUCK YUCK….and I think she does the same old stuff. She would catch my attention if she dress in a normal way. Her outfits take away from her performances. I can't stand to look at her or her videos.

  55. 55

    Grace Jones is a Legend. Lady Gaga still has some ways to go for that. Success is not measured by sales, but by impact. Only time will tell for LG.

  56. 56

    TEAM GRACE…. Grow up Mario!!!!

  57. 57

    isn't it against the gay oath to bad mouth Grace?

  58. 58

    Lamegagakiciousballs doesn't have an original thought in her lame ass skull.

  59. 59

    Re: Chandler

    Well, people actually do know who she is.
    Lady Gaga has made that clear explicitly in interviews.

  60. 60

    She needs to fucking chill and take some pages from Gaga's book, like her humility and humbleness.

  61. 61

    blah blah is nothing but a rip off off madonna (another pathetic attempt at being called an artist too) and grace 'still waiting for my peen to drop" jones….all three should just go the fuck away! all three have no fuckin talent!! all three are way too full of themselves!!! and mario you fat tub of goo do the world a favor and just stfu!

  62. MUNON says – reply to this


    Grace Jones = Original

    Lady Gaga= Grace Jones + Madonna + Kylie + Roisin Murphy - Originality

  63. 63

    yeah thats really fucked up.

  64. Rynne says – reply to this


    Grace Jones is pretty awesome. And Lady Gaga is gross with a gross voice.

  65. 65

    Re: FatCatBurrito – Well, Gaga asked to collaborate with her but Grace turned it down.

  66. 66

    Re: FatCatBurrito – Grace Jones has done lots of music for her albums, and on her latest (10th) album "Hurricane" every song has her name on music / lyrics.

  67. 67

    If Grace thinks she could pull off what GaGa is doing now, more power to her I guess. Grace may have been original for her time. There was really no one, let alone any Black women, doing what she was doing, but unfortunately, no one was buying her music, which got almost zero airplay at the time in the US, except maybe in dance or gay clubs. She was known for being bizarre rather than her music, which wasn't bad, but wasn't highly original either (a lot of her songs were covers of other peoples' songs). Her videos were creative, but were mostly the latest in video technology (i.e. claymation), of which she had little to do with the making. She should actually be flattered GaGa is inspired by her and has people mentioning her name again.

  68. 68

    Perez, you're nuttier than squirrel poop. Lady KaKa is not, nor will she ever be as great as Grace Jones. What is it with you? You've latched on to that thing like a leech and you're not letting go. Don't try and influence the world of its greatness because unlike you we can see past its clackers.

  69. 69

    Theyre both just freaks. Who cares about either one.

  70. 70

    i dont know who that bitch us, but its obvious that gaga is inspired by many artists.

  71. 71

    Washed up Diva? Perex, you should be so lucky to reach such dizzy heights.

  72. 72

    "We think there's nothing sadder than an washed-up diva who has to stay relevant by criticizing someone infinitely more successful than they ever were!"

    but isn't that what you do for a living???

  73. 73

    Grace WAS GaGa back in her day. She's just old now.

  74. 74

    You should really stop using the word "lameballs". It makes you sound childish and unprofessional.

  75. 75

    Grace Jones is right. Gaga's music is not original it is all top 40 garbage produced by the hottest producer of the moment. She is more known for her "crazy" outfits than anything else now. She is fading no matter how many times a day you post on her P ;)

  76. 76

    Lady Gaga will not have Grace Jones career when Gaga is 63 years old. The end.

  77. 77

    For anyone critiquing Grace for not doing it herself…
    Are you serious? What do you think the Haus of Gaga is for?
    And almost all of her songs have more than 2 writers, and the music of her pop hits (Whatever synth and beats) is taken care of by whoever is listed as producer.

    Seriously, if you like her whatever, good, but make sure you realize that artists are told to claim everything was their own because that's what sells.
    If you don't believe me, think of how many times you can think of an interview with Gaga where she talks about her inspiration or ideas behind or process of making a song/performance/costume.
    Someone like Ke$ha has written just as much as Lady Gaga but since we decided to hate her, nobody wants to realize that. Writing music is actually pretty common for pop stars because that's how you climb your way up, even if you sing other songs when you get there (Taio Cruz and Jason Derulo have written for others, Taylor Swift still does)

  78. 78

    Saying Grace Jones is "washed up" is like sayin' Aretha Franklin is a has-been. Grow up chico, and take it in the cojones like a man. Grace is a DIVA, an original icon, she can say anything she damn well pleases, she's earned it. Like a previous poster said, she ain't criticizing her music, she's sayin' the biyatch stole her look :-P You owe her an apology. I'm surprised your mama hasn't hit you upside the head for that remark :-P

  79. 79

    Lady Gaga is the next Marilyn Manson!

  80. 80

    Geez where the hell is this guys respect for the divas who pioneered the avant garde art of performance?

    I can understand a teenager being this ignorant, but for a guy in his 30's it's a disgrace.

  81. 81

    I'm so tried of this "OMG she's so unoriginal!" BS.. No one said "Oh Lady Gaga is the most original thing out there EVER!".. I'm not a fan of her because of her originality or lack there of.. She is a bad ass performer, I love her songs, she takes elements from everywhere- all the high glamor high fashion bullshit.. the pop and rock stars who came before her and COMBINES THEM… she wears what she likes, what she thinks fits the mood of the song she's singing.. Imitation is the best form of flattery.. people shouldn't hate on her for that.. she is not flat out copying any one person musically or with her clothes so people really must have nothing better to bitch about

  82. 82

    She has a point!

  83. 83

    How sad are you? NOBODY can't have a different opinion from your Gaga!? Gosh! get over it!, not everybody loves her as you do!! and you have to accept that in some point, Grace IS RIGHT!

    She is bitter? how about you? a cool person would laugh about this comments…you created an entry in your blog, that's LAMEBALLS

  84. luvvb says – reply to this


    miss jones' name does NOT siut here… grow old gracefully-yeah right?
    noone has heard or thought of her since 1989's "boomerrang"…
    till GaGa starting giveing her props…like the class act she is…
    grace jones needs to back to school. "how to: be a real class act/celeb"-ugh! so sad.

  85. 85

    She is completely right. CaCa is not original. I wish you would get your head out of her ass already and realize that.

  86. 86

    These celebrities take their work WAY too personally!! Why cant they just admit they both have talent and leave it at that.

  87. 87

    Lady Gaga has borrowed heavily from Madonna, Grace Jones, and Patti Labelle (stage costumes). She is FAR from original. Grace Jones was far from original as well, having all her music written for her, fashions designed by other people, signing on famous musicians like Sly and Robbie to lend her some musical cred. She has a nerve and a half criticizing the Lady for not being original. She instead should embrace and learn. Both have talent, and a duo would be absolutely phenomenal.

  88. 88

    True! Gaga is copying Grace Jones. But Gaga and Jones are also copying that great 70's Icon Cher! Cher stayed relevant with her Bob Mackey half dressed fashions for over a decade, just like Gaga and her late designer. Not sure what Jone's problem is, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

  89. 89

    Re: snipe1128 – totally agree…Perez is the biggest hypocrite in hollywood

  90. 90

    perez gaga is successful but she only has 2 number ones and that is just dance and pokerface. and none of gagas albums have went to number one.grace jones is right gaga has and is copying people.

  91. 91


  92. 92

    who is grace jones?? obviously not much of an icon if i have to google her name to find out who she is. nice try, bitter betty! lady gaga forever

  93. 93

    Go Grace Go your still tops in my books, not like this washed up blond tramp

  94. 94

    yeah i'm pretty sure Miz. Jones is correct. GAGA has even said she's inspired by her…

  95. 95

    whos grace jones? :S

  96. 96

    Grace was here first.

  97. 97

    Grace Jones is right!

  98. 98

    Yeah, cause blazers & sequins are so "original". C'mon Grace Jones, you're a has-been, get over youself.

  99. 99

    Ga Ga's style is really nothing new…look @ David Bowie Or Alice Cooper…now that's when the revolution of Rock became famous…these were the original creators!!!…Ga Ga took them and "tweeked" them and made her own…you always have the thank the ones b4 you..

  100. 100

    Grace Jones is a legend. Eat a bag of dicks perez.
