Grace Jones has blasted Lady Gaga for "copying" her
The model, singer and fashion icon admitted she had been approached to appear with `Telephone` singer Gaga - who has openly cited Grace as a huge influence - but turned her down because she isn-t original enough.
Grace said: "Yes, she did ask me to play with her, but I said no. I`d just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually.
"You know, I`ve seen some things she`s worn that I`ve worn, and that does kind of p**s me off.
"I just don`t play with other acts as a rule. I wouldn`t go to see her and I really don`t think of her at all. I go about my business."
Grace is not the only artist to accuse LadyGaga of copying them recently, as `Paper Planes` singer M.I.A feels she is a "mimic" of her own style.
She said: "There`s Gaga - she`s not progressive, but she`s a good mimic. She sounds more like me than I f***ing do!
"People say we`re similar, that we both mix all these things in the pot and spit them out differently, but she spits it out exactly the same.
"None of her music`s reflective of how weird she wants to be. She models herself on GraceJones and Madonna, but the music sounds like a 20-year-old Ibiza disco."
GraceJones will perform a one-off concert in London at the Royal Albert Hall on April 26, while LadyGaga is on the Japanese leg of her The Fame Monster tour.
