Grace Jones is unimpressed by what Kim Kardashian dishes up and offers to the general public.

In fact, she thinks it’s pretty “basic.”

Find out why Ms. Jones believes Ms. Kardashian is reductive after the jump…

Jones has a child with the creative Jean-Paul Goude and has remained in contact with him since their personal and professional split.

What this has to do with Kardashian?

Goude was the brains behind the Reality TV royal’s headline-making ‘Paper’ magazine spread…much to Grace’s disgust.

In her autobiography  the ‘Private Life’ purveyor shared:

When he took a photograph of Kim Kardashian with a champagne glass perched on her ass in an impossible pose like the ones he did with me over thirty-five years ago, I asked him why he was giving her – a basic commercial product – his ideas? This seemed to contradict his spirit of integrity, which he has protected for so long. Why was he repeating himself, just to give her a little flare of publicity, quickly absorbed by the next puff of self-promotion?” Well, he replied, ‘I got the feeling that if I didn’t do that photograph, she would have simply copied the idea anyway. I might as well copy myself.’ His ideas are are so powerful that repeating them decades later still causes a hell of a fuss, however temporary…He might have done it to wind me up a little as well. Which he did.


Kim isn’t the only “entertainer” Jones weighs in on in the tell-all book.

    • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) September 28, 2015

      • What now September 28, 2015

        Then why iz Madge’s tour numbers slaying?? KIIII @ ur desperate cling to every artist n the world bc Kim Fu Yun hasn’t been 2 a label meeting n a decade.

    • Wigsnatcher September 28, 2015

      How do you know her tour numbers are slaying since they haven’t been released yet?

  2. Visitor September 28, 2015

    Seriously, from what I’ve seen/heard of this book, it’s a shallow, self-indulgent rant. Why is she so mad? Sheesh, I can imagine this being Azelia Banks in 40 years.

    • Jane September 28, 2015

      At least Grace can back it up what about Banks? A playboy centerfold?

      • Visitor September 28, 2015

        It’s not all about backing it up; no one can take away her contribution to the arts but what about humility and letting her art speak for itself? This attitude isn’t really needed.

    • Lil Kim thee ONLY QB September 28, 2015

      Really. All of this is unnecessary and I am beyond weak.

    • Teflon Boy September 28, 2015

      No offence but you sound like the kind of audience member who doesn’t care where anything comes from as long as it slays your eyes.., not who got paid, who came up with the original idea, not who designed the outfit, certainly not about intellectual property.., and that’s fine. But you can’t expect the people who do create the art you enjoy not to feel some type of way when they see others profiting from their creations. If they were the ones getting paid they probably wouldn’t care but repeatedly they’re not.

  3. MusicLife September 28, 2015

  12. RICHIE_RICH September 28, 2015

    I don’t think she being bitter at all. I feel she wants the credit that’s due to her. Grace was a true trendsetter. Grace girl you’re wrong for calling the girls BASIC!!!!!

    Everybody just mad because Ms. Jones is reading all of their faves for the filth they are. You know, the ones who think they’re the originators and innovators! Well Ms. Jones just sent all of you basics a friendly reminder that she gave birth to yo a**!!!!

  17. R8LATE September 28, 2015

    Strangé

  18. Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 28, 2015

    An original diva. Grace is emulated by so many, so she has a right to express how she feels about people who try and add her flare to their images.

    She should be listen to because she cares about art for art sake.

    Whenever what she was doing became a trend, she swerved, on that ish.

    Amazing legend, icon, and diva.

  19. What now September 28, 2015

    Grace iz 1 of the most iconic trendsetters eva, so if she feels like reading 4 filth, I’m always here 4 it.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 28, 2015

      Yass bish!! She is an OG! Original Gangstress!

  20. #JACKIE September 28, 2015

    Grace is EVERYTHING these b****** wish they were especially Rihogre and Gaga.

  21. dee September 28, 2015

    Reductive??? Really! I think David stole Madonna vocab.

  22. OMG Logic!!! September 28, 2015

    Grace is not bitter. She’s just sick of hearing all these 3rd rate girls applauded for being so basic and unoriginal. As a true artist, it pains her to see what the industry has become.

  23. Face October 1, 2015

    Didn’t y’all even read the quote? Kim “broke the Internet” with Grace’s ex and father of her child with a second rate ass remake of work that was done by Grace over 40 YEARS AGO! You think Grace wouldn’t have something to say shout that? She didn’t even shout Grace out in the interview, she only spoke of Goude. Paper couldn’t even pay her for the spread b/c they can’t afford Kim. Kim basically did it with them b/c she knew Paper would let them.

    If I was Grace, I’d go off too. Y’all can’t be that ridiculous to think Grave is just being bitter.
