Grace Jones' "Original Beast" Will Slay and Give You Life, All At The Same Time!

OMG, Grace Jones is a national treasure. No. Scrap that. She is a planetary treasure! Four decades in, still cutting edge and slaying everyone with her musical output! "They broke the mold when they made me", indeed.

Offering up her supernatural talents to the The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 OST, Ms. Jones  has delivered to us another stunner with the tribal/reggae-fused Original Beast. In fact, this track is so vibrant and crack-like that everything I've listened to, post hearing it, has sounded grey and desaturated...will I ever return to Oz again?! Glinda, where are yooooooooou!!?

Note:The video linked features the entire Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack, so feel free to listen and discuss that too!

Lady GaGa is NOT original and copied Grace Jones and Christina Aguilera, to name but a few!

Gaga's supposed coping of Roisin Murphy

In a similar vein to an older postis some more Lady Gaga hate on Youtube. This time it's about her copying other artists' styling and concepts.

Ultimately the creators of these videos wants to show you that Gaga is not as original as they think you think she is.

My two cents: Meh. I've never heard Lady Gaga claim she was original or that her looks were not inspired by these other celebs, so she' got nothing to answer for as far I'm concerned.
