LONDON, ENGLAND, U.K. -- Lady Gaga may be ruling the world, but Grace Jones isn’t a fan.
“I really don’t think of her at all. I go about my business,” Grace told the UK’s Guardian newspaper after the former Studio 54 star and one-time Andy Warhol muse was asked what she thought of the modern day headline grabbing pop singer.
The singer/model/actress and all around legend told the newspaper that the reports were true – Gaga had asked to collaborate with her — but Grace turned Gaga down.
“Yes, she did, but I said no,” Grace said. “I’d just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually.”
Grace, who has been hitting the stage across Europe recently in a host of eye-catching, outlandish stage outfits, was asked if she thinks Gaga borrowed style ideas from the icon, something the legend didn’t say no to.
“Well, you know, I’ve seen some things she’s worn that I’ve worn, and that does kind of piss me off,” she told the newspaper.
Grace, who is in her 60’s and was once a Bond girl, added that she likely wouldn’t be checking Gaga out in concert.
“I wouldn’t go to see her,” she said.
While Grace may not be a fan, the cast of “Glee” adores the pint-sized blonde singer, who they are channeling for an upcoming episode
“We’re doing our Lady Gaga episode right now, so we were dancing our butts off this morning,” Lea Michele, who plays glee club standout Rachel Berry on the series, told Access Hollywood earlier this week.
“We’re all different Lady Gagas,” Lea added of the upcoming show. “All the girls have different Lady Gaga looks.”
