Feud alert?! Grace Jones is seemingly not the biggest fan of Lady Gaga. The 67-year-old supermodel and songstress revealed during a recent interview with Bevy Smith on SiriusXM’s Bevelations that when she met Lady Gaga, she didn’t connect with her.

“Gaga came to me, and I just could not find a soul,” Jones told Smith. “I come from church — maybe that has something to do with it. I like to get to the soul of a person. I just didn’t feel a soul.” 

Jones, however, made it clear that she doesn’t think Gaga is soulless. “She might have been freaked out with meeting me,” she explained. “This happened. It’s okay, but then we met three times after, through [Philip] Treacy and, boy, I got so angry.”

Angry, Jones explained, because she felt that Gaga was ripping her off when it came to sporting the designer’s work. “I know Philip needed to make some money, but you know what, can you just wait until I finish my tour before you repeat what we are working on?”

This isn’t the first time that Jones has sounded off on fellow singers.

During an interview with Paper magazine’s October 2015 issue, Jones bashed Kanye West after he had his then-girlfriend Amber Rose recreate Jones’ iconic 1985 Jean-Paul Goude photo shoot.

“Kanye has been ripping off stuff from me and Jean-Paul Goude for a long time, so it was no surprise to me,” Jones admitted. “It’s so like, ‘I can’t beat him, [so I guess I’ll try to] understand him,’” she explained.
