Grace Jones has been many things during her years in the spotlight: dancehall queen, artistic muse, style icon, rebel, villainous Bond girl/henchwoman. She got her start on the runways in the 1970s, but soon Jones was on the cover of magazines, topping the U.S. dance charts with disco and R&B hits like "Pull Up to the Bumper" and "Slave to the Rhythm," and befriending and influencing major players in the art and fashion worlds. And though she once made headlines for her onstage antics and drug-fueled partying, her enduring legacy has been her commitment to individuality, her fierce personality, and her defiance of social mores.
Here are 12 facts you might not know about the woman The New York Times once called "a high priestess of the outré."
Grace Beverly Jones was born in Spanish Town, Jamaica, on May 19. As for the year, 1948 is very popular on several websites, but Jones disagrees. "They say I'm a lot older than I actually am," Jones wrote in her 2015 autobiography, I'll Never Write My Memoirs. "In the press, on the internet, they add about four years to my actual age … I don't care at all. I like to keep the mystery."
2. Grace Jones grew up in a strict, religious household.
Grace's parents were both young and strict Pentecostals (her mother was the niece of a high-ranking bishop in the church). Before she turned 6, her parents immigrated to America to build a new home. According to Jones, they left their children in Jamaica because they "believed it was for the best," since children growing up in America weren't disciplined sternly enough. Instead, Grace and her four siblings were raised by her mother's mother "and her petty, brutal husband." Known as Mas P—short for Master P; his first name was Peart—her step-grandfather was a strict disciplinarian who regularly beat Jones and three of her siblings (a fourth sibling, her sister Pam, spent these years living with their great-grandmother).
Eventually, her parents sent for their children, and a 12-year-old Grace and her siblings joined them in New York (where her youngest brother was born). Although she was a shy and scared child, Jones became a rebellious and outspoken teenager whose behavior often clashed with her religious upbringing.
As a teenager, Jones began her career as a model and eventually got picked up by Wilhelmina Models. Eventually, she became frustrated by the lack of bookings and moved to Paris in 1970 to work with a brand new agency called Euro Planning. The first three models to join were Jones, Jerry Hall, and Jessica Lange. The three were roommates and fast friends, and Jones wrote that they continue to "help each other and inspire each other."
4. Grace Jones defied gender norms.
Jones is well known for embracing androgyny. Some of her most striking iconography has her hair in a flattop, her strong cheekbones and jawline sharply contoured, and her clothing tailored in the most angular way possible. "I like dressing like a guy. I love it," she told Interview magazine in 1984. "The future is no sex. You can be a boy, a girl, whatever you want."
Jones caught the acting bug while attending Onondaga Community College in Syracuse, New York, where she was majoring in Spanish. After playing the role of "Stinkweed" in a 1968 avant-garde play written by a theater teacher she has called her first crush, Jones dropped out and bounced between Philadelphia and New York City while auditioning and piecing together work as a go-go dancer.
It was the beginning of an interesting career in film. She did a number of independent action and horror films, as well as starring in 1984's Conan the Destroyer alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger. Her most famous role was likely that of May Day in A View to a Kill (1985); Jones played a villainous assassin who seduced (then died saving) Roger Moore's James Bond.
Surprisingly, before those two blockbuster films, Jones turned down the role of the replicant Zhora in Blade Runner without reading the script. At the time, she was working with the photographer and art director Jean-Paul Goude, who, Jones recalled, thought the film would be "too commercial, and I would become too Hollywood. I would become a sellout." The night after she turned down the role, she was flying to Paris and read the script on the plane. She loved the concept and changed her mind. Unfortunately, by the time her flight landed and she could call the studio, actress Joanna Cassidy had already been cast.
6. Grace Jones's first album included a Sondheim number, Édith Piaf's signature song, and "Tomorrow" from the musical Annie.
Jones began dabbling in music while she was still modeling in Paris in the mid-'70s. She released a single called "I Need A Man" on a French label in 1975; it, and the following year's "Sorry," didn't make much of a splash. But in 1977 she signed with Island Records, and producer Tom Moultan (known as the father of disco) began working on the first of three albums they did together.
Her first album, 1977's Portfolio, had a fairly unusual selection of songs. The first three tracks were disco-fied Broadway show tunes—Stephen Sondheim's "Send in the Clowns," A Chorus Line's "What I Did for Love," and "Tomorrow" from Annie. New remixes of her earlier two singles were included, as well as a new song she co-wrote called "That's the Trouble." But the pièce de résistance, as it were, was her seven-and-a-half minute interpretation of "La Vie en Rose." It became her first big international hit, and it's one she still performs live.
Jones relocated to New York City and quickly became a notorious regular at Studio 54 when it opened in 1977. In I'll Never Write My Memoirs, which she named after the opening line from her 1981 song "Art Groupie," she called herself "the wildest party animal ever" and Studio 54 was a "palace of dreams" where the beautiful people danced and partied and the fashion was as important as the music. "This was where disco became more full-on, and ballooned into the outrageous and, ultimately, the camp," Jones wrote.
Jones also discussed her extensive drug use. An advocate for trying everything at least once, she tried LSD, heroin, and "had my very first ecstasy pill in the company of Timothy Leary, which is a bit like flying to the moon with Neil Armstrong."
8. Grace Jones has a son with French designer Jean-Paul Goude, who was a constant creative partner.
Jones met French graphic designer Jean-Paul Goude in New York, and the two began a creative and romantic partnership that resulted in some of the best work of either of their careers. "In 1977 or '78, I met Grace and it was a period of decadence," Goude told WWD in 2009. "People were still doing lots of drugs and I had been working so hard for so long and she made me part of her lifestyle, made me go out dancing at Studio 54. She became an obsession and we did everything together."
Although Goude is an often controversial figure for his portrayal of black women, Grace Jones was his most famous muse. Together, their post-modern, avant-garde imagery made Jones a visual icon—some of the most striking photographs including the image of her naked in a cage (a similar image was later used for his 1982 book Jungle Fever), her Nightclubbing album cover and her Island Life cover photo. Jones and Goude dated until 1984 and had a child, Paulo, together.
Jones frequently flashes audiences or goes topless during performances, but apparently "the Most Magical Place on Earth" didn't appreciate the showmanship. During a live show at Florida's then-Downtown Disney House of Blues in 1998, Jones "pulled her top off, then proceeded to light up and smoke a doobie—on stage," according to The Orlando Sentinel. She was slapped with a lifetime ban from Disney properties.
10. Grace Jones and Andy Warhol made a scene at Arnold Schwarzenegger's wedding.
Grace Jones and Andy Warhol met during their Studio 54 days, and by the mid-'80s, they were old friends. So when they were both invited to Arnold Schwarzenegger's 1986 wedding to Maria Shriver, they decided to go together. Predictably, they were late. They flew into Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, on her private plane;Jones did her makeup during the flight and when they landed, she dressed in the airport bathroom. And then, "at the exact moment when Arnold and Maria are on their knees finishing off their special, intimate ceremony, we arrive," she wrote. "The doors noisily crack open and they turn around to see what the commotion is, and it is, guess who, Grace and Andy. Late. They didn't say anything, but you could see from the looks on their faces that they were not at all impressed." In Schwarzenegger's autobiography, he said he and Shriver "were delighted" Warhol and Jones showed up, but that "they were like gunslingers coming in through the swinging doors of a saloon in a Western movie."
Grace Jones has had a number of high-profile relationships through the years—Goude, her former bodyguard-turned-actor Dolph Lundgren, stuntman and bodybuilder Sven-Ole Thorsen—but the only time she married was to a Turkish man she met in Belgium, Atila Altaunbay. In 1996, the two essentially eloped in Brazil while she was traveling for work, and then her father performed another marriage ceremony at their family home in Syracuse. Jones knew Altaunbay was a bit younger than her (at the time, she was in her mid- to late-forties), but as she wrote in her memoir, "when we did the paperwork, I found out that he was a few years younger than I thought he was … It turned out my husband was 24."
Eventually they split, but not legally. "We're not divorced," she wrote, stating that after their breakup he went back to his family, who had never approved of her. "I can't find him to get the divorce sorted."
12. You can watch her in action on her documentary, Bloodlight and Bami.
Grace Jones met director Sophie Fiennes when she profiled Jones's brother, Bishop Noel Jones, in a 2002 documentary called Hoover Street Revival about his L.A. church. They hit it off and Jones suggested they do a project together. Fifteen years and at least a dozen years worth of footage later, the two presented the documentary Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. The film—which takes its name from the Jamaican slang for the red light that glows when an artist is recording (bloodlight) and a traditional Jamaican fried cassava flatbread (bami)—got praise for showing the multiple sides of Jones, from electrifying concert footage to intimate meals with her family in Jamaica.

Sie begann in den 1970er Jahren auf den Laufstegen, aber schon bald war Jones auf den Titelseiten von Magazinen und führte die US-Dance-Charts mit Disco- und R&B-Hits wie 'Pull Up to the Bumper' und 'Slave to the Rhythm' an und freundete sich an und Einfluss auf die wichtigsten Akteure in der Kunst- und Modewelt.. Und obwohl sie einst mit ihren Possen auf der Bühne und ihren drogengetriebenen Partys Schlagzeilen machte, ist ihr bleibendes Vermächtnis ihr Engagement für Individualität, ihre wilde Persönlichkeit und ihr Widerstand gegen soziale Sitten.. Nachdem sie 1968 die Rolle der Stinkweed in einem Avantgarde-Stück gespielt hatte, das von einer Theaterlehrerin geschrieben wurde, die sie ihren ersten Schwarm nannte, stieg Jones aus und hüpfte zwischen Philadelphia und New York City, während sie vorsingen und ihre Arbeit als Go-Go-Tänzerin zusammensetzte .. Zu dieser Zeit arbeitete sie mit dem Fotografen und Art Director Jean-Paul Goude zusammen, der, erinnerte sich Jones, der Meinung war, der Film sei „zu kommerziell und ich würde zu Hollywood werden.. Jones zog nach New York City und wurde schnell zu einem berüchtigten Stammgast im Studio 54, als es 1977 eröffnet wurde Ich werde niemals meine Memoiren schreiben , die sie nach der Eröffnungszeile ihres 1981er Songs 'Art Groupie' benannte, nannte sie sich selbst 'das wildeste Partytier aller Zeiten' und Studio 54 war ein 'Palast der Träume', wo die schönen Leute tanzten und feierten und die Mode genauso wichtig war als die Musik.. »Die Türen knallen geräuschvoll auf, und sie drehen sich um, um zu sehen, was die Aufregung ist, und raten Sie mal, wer, Grace und Andy.. Grace Jones hatte im Laufe der Jahre eine Reihe hochkarätiger Beziehungen – Goude, ihr ehemaliger Leibwächter, der zum Schauspieler wurde Dolph Lundgren, Stuntman und Bodybuilder Sven-Ole Thorsen – aber das einzige Mal, dass sie heiratete, war ein türkischer Mann, den sie in Belgien kennengelernt hatte , Atila Altaunbay.
Most people witnessed Grace Jones at the peak of her hooping powers for the first time at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration, of all places.. Towards the end of her 2015 memoir – wittily titled I’ll Never Write My Memoirs after a lyric from her 1981 song ‘Art Groupie’ – you’ll find Grace Jones’ incredibly specific tour rider.. Well, Grace Jones firmly holds the belief that if you can’t trust somebody to shuck an oyster properly, you may as well shuck it yourself.. And she didn’t just reserve blades for photoshoots: in her memoirs, Grace Jones writes about pioneering roller skates in the workplace at one of her summer jobs.. Elsewhere in I’ll Never Write my Memoirs , Grace Jones claims that she flew on Concorde so many times that “I could have flown the plane, except I would have wanted to do it naked, sprayed silver, in roller skates.”. From the styling of Rihanna ’s ‘Rude Boy’ video to the reinventions of Lady Gaga , Grace Jones’ influence is keenly felt in modern pop music today – and though they do say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Grace Jones certainly doesn’t feel that way.
Elle a fait ses débuts sur les podiums dans les années 1970, mais bientôt Jones a fait la couverture de magazines, en tête des charts dance américains avec des tubes disco et R&B comme 'Pull Up to the Bumper' et 'Slave to the Rhythm', et se lie d'amitié et influencer les grands acteurs du monde de l'art et de la mode.. Les parents de Grace étaient à la fois jeunes et stricts pentecôtistes (sa mère était la nièce d'un évêque de haut rang dans l'église).. Finalement, ses parents ont envoyé chercher leurs enfants, et Grace, 12 ans, et ses frères et sœurs les ont rejoints à New York (où son plus jeune frère est né).. Finalement, elle est devenue frustrée par le manque de réservations et a déménagé à Paris en 1970 pour travailler avec une toute nouvelle agence appelée Euro Planning.. Après avoir joué le rôle de ' Stinkweed ' dans une pièce d'avant-garde de 1968 écrite par un professeur de théâtre qu'elle a appelé son premier béguin, Jones a abandonné et a rebondi entre Philadelphie et New York tout en auditionnant et en reconstituant son travail en tant que danseuse go-go.. Elle a sorti un single intitulé 'I Need A Man' sur un label français en 1975; ça, et le 'Désolé' de l'année suivante, n'a pas fait grand bruit.. Mais en 1977, elle a signé avec Island Records, et le producteur Tom Moultan (connu comme le père du disco) a commencé à travailler sur le premier des trois albums qu'ils ont fait ensemble.. Ensemble, leurs images post-modernes et avant-gardistes ont fait de Jones une icône visuelle - certaines des photographies les plus frappantes, y compris l'image d'elle nue dans une cage (une image similaire a ensuite été utilisée pour son livre de 1982 Fièvre de la jungle ), sa Discothèque couverture de l'album et elle La vie insulaire photo de couverture.. Grace Jones et Andy Warhol se sont rencontrés pendant leurs 54 jours au Studio, et au milieu des années 80, ils étaient de vieux amis.. Ainsi, lorsqu'ils ont tous deux été invités au mariage d'Arnold Schwarzenegger avec Maria Shriver en 1986, ils ont décidé d'y aller ensemble.. Comme on pouvait s'y attendre, ils étaient en retard.. Jones savait qu'Altaunbay était un peu plus jeune qu'elle (à l'époque, elle avait entre le milieu et la fin de la quarantaine), mais comme elle l'écrit dans ses mémoires, « lorsque nous avons fait la paperasse, j'ai découvert qu'il avait quelques années plus jeune que je ne le pensais… Il s'est avéré que mon mari avait 24 ans.. « Je ne peux pas le trouver pour régler le divorce.. Quinze ans et au moins une douzaine d'années d'images plus tard, les deux ont présenté le documentaire Grace Jones : Bloodlight et Bami au Festival international du film de Toronto 2017.

Grace.. What is this grace?. It was grace.. "The grace.". Grace be with you all.. That is grace.. And while in prison--you can read this here in Chronicles 33:12-13, "now when he was in affliction, he implored the Lord his God, and he humbled himself greatly before the Lord of his fathers," the God of his fathers, "and prayed to him; and he," God, "received his entreaty, heard his supplication, and brought him back to Jerusalem in his kingdom.". And he says that, you know, "I was so far from God and God showed grace to me.". How often do you and I need the grace of God?. If God has that much grace for his enemies, will he have grace for you?. God's grace should be in us.. You can tell if God's grace has worked on us, because it's in us.. "Grace in you.". It's not grace!"

I've Seen That Face Before: looking back on Grace Jones' iconic Nightclubbing with the people who made it happen - Fact Magazine ›
With Alex Sadkin the engineer, he said “listen to this record album and take some of these sounds and let this be the Grace Jones sound because this is good!” And from there everything was set for the sound of Grace Jones.. We said “what we gonna play?”, he said “I dunno!” – but he had the engineer in, so we went in with Alex and start playing in the studio, we got a groove, and we thought well, let’s just record what we do instead of wasting time going in and out of the studios.. We didn’t know those individual songs, but we listened to them, then we made a great sound.. Sometimes one would stay there for year before it got used, like ‘Pull up to the Bumper’ was cut in the first sessions but didn’t come out ’til ‘Nightclubbing’ a year later.. For the new release of the album they’ve found these two tracks that sound incredible and could easily have been on the album – did you get a sense of why they weren’t used?. Sure, some records you can hear a kind of influence, sometimes just one sound, sometimes the whole feeling – but that’s no surprise, because so many people still say that those are the best records they ever heard, those Grace Jones collections that we did.. If anything, it was all the albums put together, and particularly Alex Sadkin’s approach to sound recording and mixing that left a profound impact on me ever since: make everything sound pristine from second one, never wait to “fix it in the mix”.. Were you surprised that they didn’t make the cut for the final album, and are you glad they’re released now?. Nothing surprising about it: we had a go at about three times the amount of tracks than that of the songs which eventually made it to the final albums.. I was after getting this done for a long time – back in 2003 was when I first started looking into it and got the [studio] tape reports..

Ea a început pe piste în anii 1970, dar în curând Jones a fost pe coperta revistelor, în fruntea topurilor de dans din SUA cu hituri disco și R&B precum „Pull Up to the Bumper” și „Slave to the Rhythm”, și împrietenirea și influențând principalii jucători din lumea artei și a modei.. Și, deși a făcut odinioară titluri pentru petrecerile pe scenă și petrecerea alimentată de droguri, moștenirea ei durabilă a fost angajamentul ei față de individualitate, personalitatea ei feroce și sfidarea față de obiceiurile sociale.. În schimb, Grace și cei patru frați ai ei au fost crescuți de mama mamei sale și de soțul ei meschin și brutal.. În cele din urmă, părinții ei și-au trimis copiii, iar Grace, în vârstă de 12 ani, și frații ei li s-au alăturat în New York (unde s-a născut fratele ei cel mai mic).. După ce a jucat rolul „Stinkweed” într-o piesă de avangardă din 1968 scrisă de un profesor de teatru pe care și-a numit-o prima zdrobire, Jones a renunțat și a sărit între Philadelphia și New York, în timp ce făcea audiții și împărțea împreună lucrează ca dansator.. În Nu voi scrie niciodată memoria mea , pe care a numit-o după linia de deschidere din piesa ei din 1981 „Art Groupie”, s-a numit „cel mai sălbatic animal de petrecere vreodată” și Studio 54 a fost un „palat al viselor” unde oamenii frumoși dansau și petreceau, iar moda era la fel de importantă ca muzica.. „Aici a fost locul în care discoteca a devenit mai completă și a pătruns în tabăra revoltătoare și, în cele din urmă,”, a scris Jones.. „Oamenii încă consumau multe droguri și eu muncisem atât de mult de atât de mult și ea m-a făcut să particip la stilul ei de viață, m-a făcut să ieșesc la dans la Studio 54.. Grace Jones a avut o serie de relații de profil de-a lungul anilor - Goude, fostul ei gardian de corp transformat în actor Dolph Lundgren, cascador și culturist Sven-Ole Thorsen - dar singura dată când s-a căsătorit a fost cu un bărbat turc pe care l-a cunoscut în Belgia , Atila Altaunbay.. Filmul - care își ia numele din argoul jamaican pentru lumina roșie care aprinde atunci când un artist înregistrează (sânge) și o pâine plată tradițională de manioc jamaican prăjită (bami) - a primit laude pentru faptul că a arătat multiplele părți ale lui Jones, de la filmările de concert electrizante la mese intime cu familia ei în Jamaica.
