New Grace Jones clips on youtube.com, including a scintillating Jean-Paul Goude-inspired Citroen commercial and a two-part 1983 Letterman interview! She's completely incredible! "Not the gorilla!" And a performance of Below The Belt w/ fake snow and jump-roping back-up dancers! Though I'll bet there was some real "snow" somewhere on the set. Grace explains her many clones in her one-man show to Letterman, saying the clones were used so that no one would know when she was on or off stage. I'm sure that this helped a lot when she needed to "powder her nose" between songs! I worship this creature!

I used to be horrified by photographs of Grace Jones when I was a pre-teen (in that Midwestern, clueless, "Ewww, a woman with a flat-top" way). I grew to appreciate her when I watched footage of her live shows and her music videos. She is aptly named! Very elegant and chic--and she got to sleep with Dolph Lundgren! How much cooler can you get? :-)

Is it true that she's not allowed back in Jamaica?

I would have liked to have seen the infamous 1981 clip of Grace Jones's attempt to beat up talk show host Russell Harty live on UK TV, she was provoked when the presenter dared to turn his back on her for a split second to talk to his other guests, she had a tantrum and slapped him in his face.It was such a joy!

I once partied with that goddess in Houston at an after hours in someone's home. She kept throwing her arms up into what would have been the ceiling fan had I not saved the nut from getting them chopped off! --B

Aaron--I also got to brush up against Dolph's crotch at the Tunnel in Michael Alig days and it felt sooooo good. I'm not into blonds but that thing is SEXY! The "girls" claimed he was a tranny-chaser. --B

Maybe I'll tell our singer--she's a tranny, and she always manages to pick up some straight butch guy at all our gigs.
