Iconic superstar Grace Jones has everyone talking over the shade she threw in her recently released ‘Private Life’ autobiography.
Grace touched on Kim Kardashian‘s infamous #BreakTheInternet PAPER Magazine cover and how “basic” she thought it was that photographer Jean Paul Goude would try to replicate images he had shot with her in the late 70s.
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.
Yikes! Grace holds back nothing. Pick up your copy of “Private Life” HERE.
