In the creative process, everyone 'steals' (if you want to use that term) from other sources. From the most innovative to other lesser mortals. Iggy himself had his influences from other artists. It's what a handful of innovative artists do with the influences that sets them apart.

You're not a fan of his work and that's fine. The fact that any musician's work will have echoes of other artists is par for the cause. It's the creative process AND the learning process and it isn't actually restricted to the music field.
