Grace Jones
Grace Jones has defended infamous New York City nightclub Studio 54, insisting "moderation" was always practiced by its patrons.

The singer was a regular fixture of the 1970s hotspot, which became known for sexual activity and rampant drug use that occurred after hours. However, Jones maintains the discotheque was a far more civilized place than its notorious reputation suggests.

She tells U.K. talk show host Alan Carr, "It wasn't as bad as they say - it was cool. It was cool in the sense (that) there was moderation, believe it or not. That way you could have conversation. You know, you...

Grace Jones: The Original Lady Gaga

May 31st, 2010 7:22pm EDT
Grace Jones
Ah, Grace Jones. You've got to love her for her originality and because she was (and still is) the original Lady Gaga before Gaga was even saying "ga ga" and pooping in her diapers. But what's going on with this mask?

Grace showed up at amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS Gala in France last week and spoiled a perfectly fine lavender dress with a very odd head accoutrement. Wait, what? No, it's not spoiled, it's just Grace being Grace!

The original Lady Gaga recently turned down an offer to collaborate with the copycat Grace Jones because she refuses to team up with a star who has been "copying"...

There Is Little Originality With Lady Gaga's Shtick, Except She's A White Woman

May 10th, 2010 11:21am EDT
Lady Gaga
It is hard to believe that in two short years, Lady Gaga has gone from being an underground artist in New York City, trying to find her way after graduating from a prestigious prep school, to an internationally known pop-culture icon. In China, "OMLG" (Oh my Lady Gaga!) has replaced "OMG."

Her popularity has less to do with the quality of her music (as fun and danceable as it is) and more to do with her audacious image and the fact that she considers herself a "performance artist." And boy, does she commit. There is never a time when we see her out of costume, not playing the part that she...

Grace Jones Snubbed 'Copycat' Lady Gaga

Grace Jones
Grace Jones turned down an offer to collaborate with Lady Gaga - because she refuses to team up with a star who has been "copying" her style.

The Poker Face hit-maker has long cited Jones as an inspiration, and her eccentric fashion sense has often drawn comparisons between the pair.

The A View to a Kill star reveals she was approached by Gaga to record a duet - but Jones snubbed the request, accusing the singer of stealing her style.

She says, "Yes, she did (ask about a duet), but I said no. I'd just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, ...

M.I.A.: 'Lady Gaga Is A Good Mimic'

April 8th, 2010 8:45am EDT
M.I.A.
Rapper/singer M.I.A. has blasted critics who compare her to Lady Gaga - because she doesn't think the pop star is very original.

The Paper Planes hit-maker is impressed by the singer's ability to "mimic" her heroes but insists Gaga hasn't done enough to establish herself as an innovator.

M.I.A. tells Britain's NME, "People say we're similar, that we both mix all these things (influences) in the pot and spit them out differently, but she spits it out exactly the same! None of her music's reflective of how weird she wants to be or thinks she is. She models herself on Grace Jones and Madon...

He must also:

1. Be a snazzy dresser.

2. Have a hot Bond girl.

3. Have a bitchin' ride.

Renee Zellweger
People who inhabit the Taurus sign (April 20-May 20) have a great work ethic and are reliable, honest, and determined. They don't take any unnecessary risks and are not easily distracted. In other words, they're taskmasters.

Take Cher, for example. She's been working since she was 17 - that's 45 years in the business and one heck of a work ethic. Although she "officially retired" following her 2005 farewell tour, she is contracted to perform over 200 shows over the next three years.

Those born under the bull sign also like to live comfortably. That's not a difficult thi...
