Most of us in the land of Whudat, if at all, know Grace Jones from her scene stealing antics in Boomerang or her early eighties smash hit “Pull up to the Bumper.” Grace Jones hit the 60 year mark on May 19, 2008. To celebrate, Hurricane was released on Nov. 11; her first album in 20 years. Time hasn’t changed a thing, Grace Jones is as wild and free as ever. On Tuesday, in an interview with Times Online, Grace Jones talked about how she used to dominate feminize the men that caught her eye.
“I used to drag people up on stage, whip them and pretend to f*** them in the rear. You can’t get more intimidating than that. But I’m honest about it, so the men who go out with me know I’m going to be more macho than them. My husband used to shout at my mother, ‘What is wrong with your daughter? I’m married to a man!’ She throws back her head and roars with laughter. “I’m not like a normal woman, that’s for sure.”
Grace claims that she’s still lining em’ up and knocking em’ down..
“Do you manage better without sex now that you’re older? ‘No, I get cranky. It’s not in my blood to get bored with sex. When I don’t have one guy, I usually have six or ten of them fluttering around.’”
Grace Jones tip of the day: Make history .. or at least, have a good time.
“A lot of people look back too much. My son’s friends sit there and tell me: ‘We’re so jealous of Studio 54, we wish that was happening now.’ It was an amazing time, but people have to make their own parties. I keep telling people to get out there and party. Open some clubs! Personally, my best parties are wherever I am at the time.. High society likes to have fun too. They just need someone to tell them it’s all right to take their shoes off, get naked, stick a joint in everyone’s mouth.” She chuckles. “I’m Jamaican. I always ask for a little spliff when I’m on stage.. “
“Corporate Cannibal” is Grace Jones’ new single.
You can’t fault her for that; it’s pretty much impossible to surpass..
