"I'll Never Write My Memoirs," as she criticizes the likes of Beyoncé, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga and more as being copycats and wannabes.
On Thursday, an excerpt from the book was released to TimeOut and it's clear the entertainment legend isn't mincing her words.
Grace Jones said: "Trends come along and people say, 'Follow that trend'."
"There's a lot of that around at the moment: 'Be like Sasha Fierce.
Be like Miley Cyrus. Be like Rihanna.
Be like Lady Gaga.
Be like Madonna.'"
She also condemned the clothing of the younger female stars, accusing them of playing up to what she calls "the status quo."
“They dress up as though they are challenging the status quo, but by now, wearing those clothes, pulling those faces, revealing those tattoos and breasts, singing to those fractured, spastic, melting beats – that is the status quo.
"You are not off the beaten track, pushing through the thorny undergrowth, finding treasure no one has come across before."
