Grace Jones Knocks Rihanna

Grace Jones, who is the supreme, superb embodiment of the term “hot mess,” has launched a scathing attack on current pop acts who are wanton to trends and have brazenly stolen her aesthetic, saying: “I cannot be like them – except to the extent that they are already being like me.” In an excerpt from her forthcoming autobiography “I’ll Never Write My Memoirs,” the singer and style icon spoke about being copied by contemporary acts and how pop stars such as Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus have “no long-term vision.” “There will always be a replacement coming along very soon – a newer version, a crazier version, a louder version,” she wrote. “So if you haven’t got a long-term plan, then you are merely a passing phase, the latest trend, yesterday’s event.” She wrote about not using the word diva because it’s been abused: “Every singer given a makeover or a few weeks on a talent show seems to be called a diva these days.” She singled out Rihanna for criticism for copying her body painting look, which she developed with Keith Haring. “I don’t even know if she knows that what she’s doing comes from me, but I bet you the people styling her know.”
