Veteran entertainer Bette Midler is unconvinced by the hype surrounding Lady GaGa - insisting nobody could ever live up to her flamboyant heroine Grace Jones.
The singer/actress is a fan of the Poker Face hitmaker's music, and she's likened the star's headline-dominating antics to Jones' outlandish behaviour - but insists it's not quite as shocking.
Midler tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "She's a terrific player, has a beautiful voice and is a good songwriter. The stuff around her? Nah, not so much. I have my heroines and one of them is Grace Jones, and I don't think anyone could touch Grace."
