One of the things she said was about Kim Kardashian. Grace just doesn’t respect this whole ‘Kardashian movement’ we’ve all been subjected to over the past few years. Here is what she wrote about the now infamous naked photos Kim released in Paper Magazine earlier this year:

“When he [photographer Jean-Paul Goude] 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.”

Grace Jones also made a good point with her reasons as to why she thinks he shouldn’t have taken the photos. The thing that stood out the most to me was that Grace called Kim Kardashian a ‘basic commercial product,” I’ve gotta admit that her description was CLASSIC…LOL.
