There’s only one Grace Jones. In a sea of generic, cookie cutter celebrities she stands out a genuinely eccentric artist. One gets the feeling that she’d be like this even if the camera wasn’t watching. Some people always need a stage.
Her extraordinary icy persona combined with a forward thinking mix of Disco, Rock, Pop and Reggae influences helped create some truly original music while her oddball style saw her cast in some strange roles, including the beautiful but deadly bloodsucker Katrina in VAMP.
Look out for her warrior role in Conan the Destroyer or her Eiffel Tower jumping turn in View to a Kill as May Day. She also shows up in Alex Cox’s Punk Spaghetti Western movie Straight to Hell.
NOW… Check out two classic Grace Jones movie moments from Vamp and A View to a Kill and a little relationship advice from Conan the Destroyer.
