Chapter Thirty Five: I Present you Amazing Grace Jones

Thought I owed it to those who think they could school me on her. Yes people i knew who she was all along. I remember her as the James Bond chick but yea for those of you that don't know about Grace Jones let me introduce you. Jones is from Spanish-town Jamaica (one of the craziest parts of Jamaica) and is now 60 years of age. She has done everything from "super"modeling, acting, singing, and songwriting.

One of Grace Jones's most memorable moments is when she slapped a British tv show host in the middle of a the show, because, he went to interview someone else. Other roles that she is most memorable for is James Bond "A view to a kill" where she played a villain and I'm a huge James Bond fan also so that is where i remember her from the most. Jones was even nominated for Best supporting actress in this role for a Saturn Award.

Jones's sense of style has always been wild and untamed and thus has always stirred up controversy since the 80's and as you can see from my earlier post still doing so. Thus yesss ppl I know Grace Jones, and even tho she still looked retarted to me in that pic, I still admire her. So let's keep it real we don't always have to agree with what people we admire do. Look at Lil Waynes dumbass and all the sh*t he does and I still admire him too. Anyway shout out to Grace Jones's crazy ass wherever she is.

P.s. did you know that she helped move the cross-dressing movement because of her appearance is that of a man @ 5'11 and having a flat top lmao.
