Droppin' bombs. :lol:

Grace Jones latest artist unimpressed with Lady Gaga - The Marquee Blog - CNN.com Blogs

Cultural icon Grace Jones doesn't work with other artists as a personal rule, and that includes Lady Gaga, she told the U.K.'s The Guardian.

"I've seen some things she's worn that I've worn, and that does kind of piss me off," Jones said, but she added, "I really don't think of her at all. I go about my business."

Although the "Bad Romance" provocateur asked to collaborate with Jones, the 61-year-old explained she turned her down because she'd "just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually," Jones said.

She's not the first artist to complain of Gaga being a copycat.

In music magazine N.M.E.'s April 7 issue, M.I.A. took Gaga to task for sounding more like her than she does herself.

"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," M.I.A. said. "None of her music's reflective of how weird she wants to be or thinks she is."

To M.I.A., Gaga "models herself on Grace Jones and Madonna but the music sounds like 20 year-old Ibiza disco. She's not progressive, but she's a good mimic. She sounds more like me than I [expletive] do! That's a talent… but she's the industry's last stab at making itself important."

Yeah, but Lady Gaga is hot. I'd be terrified of Grace Jones, I'd say she'd snap me in half.

Good thing she's still around.

Lol at complaint of pop being unoriginal
Some "pop" artists have created some brilliant and original work, you just have to know where to look. Depeche Mode and New Order are some that come to mind, as well as Tears for Fears. Many people would call these groups pop (I would call Depeche and New Order goth, and Tears for Fears - Styx Number 2.) Also, Seal must be mentioned, because he's brilliant and he's banging Heidi Klum. He wins at everything.

I have not listened to Lady Gaga, so I really have no idea what to say about her. She's attractive, and dresses a bit strangely, but that really doesn't say much. I like weird, but if the music isn't as crazy as she appears...fug it.

I never realized that the person in that picture was a woman, and I have no fucking clue what she has accomplished.

As much as I don't really care about any of the people mentioned in that article, I'd still listen to lady gaga over them.

Er, to each their own, I guess. I think she looks repulsive.

OH man, I just remembered some Eddie Murphy movie (maybe not eddie murphy?) where she made him smell her panties and said "THAT is the ES-SAWNTS of sex" or something like that.

It was for a perfume thing on the movie.
