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.
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.
