Still Controversial and Sculptural Grace Jones

Grace Jones was born in Jamaica in May of 1948... yes, she is 61 years old... an American-Jamaican singer, model, and actress considered an icon of the 1980s. Famous for her severe, androgynous look, Grace was a Bond girl, muse to Andy Warhol and her body served as canvas for Keith Haring's tribal patterns on many occasions.

"I deliberately challenged men’s roles. In fact, I survived by taking on both roles." - Grace Jones said in her interview for V Magazine photographed Jean-Paul Gouge. Read the full interview at

Her new album "Hurricane" released in 2009 criticizes corporations and the control they have over our lives and specially the art scene. Watch the video bellow, Corporate Cannibal.

And a classic, Grace Jones singing Libertango.
