So, not everyone is a fan of Lady Gaga.

Most of the teens still are – and they’ve probably broken many a finger nail trying to twist their hair into dangly oversized bows – but winning over the elders of the universe is another story altogether. And that sucks for Gaga – especially because she’s named one woman old enough to be her grandmother (ignore the racial differences for the time being), as an inspiration.

Gaga, and her delusional self, believes they “relate” to one another, as she’s labeled them both “androgynous, robo, future fashion queens.” She meant that in a good way, though. She even went as far as to call the inspiring, aging former Bond Girl “Jesus.”

But Grace Jones isn’t buying it. She’s not flattered at all. She’s now just one pissed off old lady – and that’s the worst kind of old lady.

In an interview with England’s The Guardian this week, the legendary Grace Jones admitted that Gaga had once approached her about a possible collaboration. She denied. Her reasoning?

“I’d just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually. 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 added: “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.”

Here are a couple of other people Jones should add to that list:

Some “copy cat”-ing is okay, though, like when it’s paid homage and it’s identified and declared as such. See below, take notes.
