Her thoughts when you read on...
Here's a snippet from a new and rare interview with Ms. Jones. When asked about allegations of Lady Gaga being a copycat and on working with GaGa:
"I just don't play with other acts as a rule," she says, with rare discretion.
What does she think of her? "I really don't think of her at all. I go about my business."
Has she copied her? "Well, you know, I've seen some things she's worn that I've worn, and that does kind of piss me off."
Is she talented? "I wouldn't go to see her."
So, did she ask to play with her? "Yes, she did, but I said no. I'd just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually."
Womp. Speaking of swagger jacking the original pop diva, is Rihanna guilty of doing the same thing on her new tour? Hmmm....
