The 'War' Between Grace Jones and Kim Kardashian

"Kim Kardashian is basic",
at least that's what Jamaican singer, lyricist, supermodel, record producer, and actress, Grace Jones thinks.

Jones who has a child with the creative Jean-Paul Goude, the brain behind Kim's Paper Magazine front cover (butt holding champagne glass photo).

Baring her thoughts in her autobiography -the ‘Private Life’,

"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."

Dear Miss Jones, you sure that's all there is to it? No jealousy, envy maybe?
