Grace Jones has basically just dissed every pop star in the music industry today.
Oh my! Looks like some shots were fired from Grace Jones.
She has been saying crazy things in her memoir.
Is what she saying true or just out of jealousy?
Originality is hard to come by nowadays. Pop stars do tend to influence each other or are accused of copying one another. Fans are quick to defend their favourite pop diva if any flak comes their way. In the case of Grace Jones’s new memoir, she has stated that pop stars are just sticking to the same sort of fame. In her mind, they’re all similar enough to be irreplaceable. Though it may seem like some of what she is saying has some sort of truth behind it, she also has missed major points. Though these pop stars are the same on some level, they have something about them that keeps them relevant in the music industry.Â In the words ofÂ BeyoncÃ©, they’re “Irreplaceable.”
Go on to see what Grace Jones is saying about pop stars.
In excerpts from her forthcoming memoir, the former pop star lays into Rihanna, Nicky Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga and even Sia saying that they are all just â€˜adhering to the status quoâ€™.
The now 67-year-old says she never wanted to be â€˜famous for being famousâ€™ and accuses the above of doing just that and then some.
She accuses todayâ€™s pop elite of being â€˜replaceableâ€™ and having â€˜no long term visionâ€™. N.B.: Grace Jones has not had a hit album or single in nearly three decades.

The singer, who says Kate Moss calls her the only remaining diva, is also sick of the label being banded around willy-nilly.
â€œThey dress up as though they are challenging the status quo, but by now, wearing those clothes, pulling those faces, revealing those tattoos and breasts, singing to those fractured, spastic, melting beats â€“ that is the status quo. You are not off the beaten track, pushing through the thorny undergrowth, finding treasure no one has come across before. You are in the middle of the road,â€ she writes.
