Janet Jackson goes gaga on Larry King

Janet Jackson was interviewed by Larry King recently, and when asked about her favorite current musicians, she listed Lady Gaga first and foremost.  Jackson said all the predictable things about Gaga being talented and innovative and fashion-forward, and also added that Gaga reminds her of a modern-day Grace Jones, constantly pushing boundaries.

Jackson claims that she met Gaga and knew her on a personal level before Gaga even got a recording contract, and that Jackson knew from the beginning that this was the start of something big.  Jackson says that Lady Gaga is something different for today’s music market, but I remember back in the ’80s when she was original and attractive and named Madonna.
