Grace Jones is putting everyone on notice – she was making artistic statements and pushing boundaries way before today’s so-called edgy divas were even born.

In her new memoir I’ll Never Write My Memoirs, the model/actress/singer described why she can never get caught up in today’s A-list nonsense:

“Trends come along and people say, ‘Follow that trend.’ There’s a lot of that around at the moment: ‘Be like Sasha Fierce (Beyonce). Be like Miley Cyrus. Be like Rihanna. Be like Lady Gaga. Be like Rita Ora and Sia. Be like Madonna.’ I cannot be like them — except to the extent that they are already being like me.”

On her own career, she was all about “art over money,” which she says left her living on a more modest income than people think:

“I have been so copied by those people who have made fortunes that people assume I am that rich. But I did things for the excitement, the dare, the fact that it was new, not for the money, and too many times I was the first, not the beneficiary.”

    What took her so long? I noticed this when these younger artists came on scene. Almost everyone is influenced by some who came before them, but mentioning it is quite enough…don’t make a major deal of it. As a young adult of the 80’s, I thought Grace Jones was awesome, but time has moved on and we’ve all grown up. Grace is still cool though.
