GRACE JONES IN V MAG
AND SHE'S INTERVIEWED BY HER FORMER LOVER/COLLABORATOR JEAN-PAUL GOUDE. HERE'S A SNIPPET:
JPG Do you always hide your emotions?
GJ I always had to mask my emotions. I could never show that I missed my mom or my dad, especially when they moved to America. My grandparents were tough. I was not allowed to receive letters that had not been read before. Everything was controlled, everything!
JPG Would you say that your rebellion towards your family’s authority extended to your relationship with the men in your life?
GJ I think so, yes. And I think that is what contributed to my masculinization. I deliberately challenged men’s roles. In fact, I survived by taking on both roles. By the way, I also think that men need to be penetrated.
JPG I beg your pardon?
GJ At least once in their lifetime.
GJ Because then they would understand what it is like to receive. It’s my own theory, which I think could help take some of the aggression out of the world.
