amazing book news: grace jones is publishing a memoir
With stories from modeling in Paris for YSL, living with Jerry Hall and collaborating with Andy Warhol, we’re so happy Grace Jones broke her promise to never write a memoir.
Rules are there to be broken, and, fortunately for us, rebel songwriter, actor, model and artist Grace Jones has decided to break her lyrical promise to never write a memoir. "I wrote a song called Art Groupie," Jones says, explaining that, "[The] first line said 'I'll never write my memoirs'"; but now she's changed her mind, saying, "That was a long time ago. Since then, I thought, if I don't do it, somebody else will".
This spectacular turnaround is set to bring us fabulous tales from Jones's career as a model for Yves Saint Laurent in Paris, living with Jerry Hall, moving to New York, recording disco albums and becoming a regular at Studio 54, her photographically iconic relationship with Jean-Paul Goude, collaborating with Andy Warhol, and her third career as an actor, starring alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and Roger Moore.
Racking up over 50 years in spotlight, Jones has not slowed down one bit. At the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012, Jones hula hooped for 4 minutes straight while performing her absolute banger Slave to the Rhythm, and she recently appeared at Hyde Park in a G-string, a waspie and Keith Haring body paint. #67yearoldgoals.
News of the memoir follows an announcement by the BBC that they have commissioned a documentary film about the androgynous, multi-hyphenate superwoman, titled Grace Jones - The Musical Of My Life.
