    Nowadays, isn’t everything derivative, a copy of a copy of a copy, no matter how many times removed? Regardless, that hasn't stopped Grace Jones – and really, what has she done lately to get in the press other than take a pot shot at Lady Gaga?- from opening her cakehole. Jones claims that she refused to collaborate with the pop icon simply because she thinks Gaga lacks any sort of originality. Jones also claims to be a large portion of Gaga's source material!

    "I'd just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually," the 61-year-old former supermodel told The UK's Guardian newspaper. She continued, "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." Jones did not specifically point out which Gaga ensemble was cribbed from her, so we're really not believing any of this argument.

    After claiming that Gaga has copped her look, Jones also said, "I really don't think of her at all. I go about my business. I just don't play with other acts as a rule." Hmm, so if you don't think of Gaga at all, then how do you know she is copying your looks, Grace?

    Even though Jones laid some pretty angry comments at her doorstep, Gaga responded with grace and class, saying that she is inspired by Jones and went as far as describing Jones, a former Bond girl, as Jesus. How ironic, since Gaga tops producer wishlists for the artist they want to pen the next Bond song!

    Who appears to be Lady Gaga's biggest influence?
