Grace Jones Calls Kim Kardashian Basic

In her book Grace explained why she was disgusted her former photographer Jean-Paul Goude did a spread with Kim Kardashian.

To sum it up, Grace thinks Kim is basic.

Grace writes:

When he took a photograph of Kim Kardashian with a champagne glass perched on her a*s 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.

  1. OK GRACE! Speak on it. I hate that u had to mention her name, but I’m glad you pointed out the ridiculousness of her copying that photograph

  2. Is Kim basic? Of course she is. But what is this country’s fixation on still discussing her and her basic family all the time regardless? The only way to rid society of the Kardashians is to stop talking about them.

  3. I feel like that whole family is basic. None of them have talent and all the surgery they’ve had over the years makes them look weird body wise and facially. Kanye really did keep them in business.

  4. I just laugh when I see Kim trying to imitate Grace. Not only is Kim not as good looking as she used to be, but her body is so gross now. She really messed herself up.

  5. Grace is an icon. Kim’s lucky she even got a mention. Kim and her family may be able to buy followers and magazine spreads, but they will never be able to buy respect.

  6. I just want Kim and her family to sit down. It’s been non stop with them since the s-x tape. They just won’t go away.

  7. Grace has been going in on everybody but she’s earned the right to speak her truth. Kim is very basic, but she’s still a white woman who was able to gain from white privilege. I’m sure Kanye is elated to finally have the white woman he’s been wanting all these years.

  8. Kanye has Kim out here looking more and more like a knockoff of a black woman. He wanted a white woman but he spends most of his time trying to make Kim a knock off version of our black superheroes. Michelle Obama, Beyonce, Grace Jones…etc. It’s so odd.
