Even if you weren’t a child of the 80’s or 90’s, chances are, you’ll know of Grace Jones.
Her stamp on popular culture as a singer, artist, actress and general creative badass is unparalleled. Still performing today, Jones’ shows are like moving art pieces; she can terrify, induce awe and drop a classic funk/soul vocal to disco beats that will have anybody bopping.
An insightful and rare documentary into Jones’ life and career is set to premiere next month, entitled Bloodlight and Bami and to tell the truth, we are stoked.
Jones’ artistry has influenced the likes of Lady Gaga and Rihanna, in terms of today’s current chart toppers, and notoriously, she has long remained out of the tabloid spotlight. This documentary is set to feature decades’ of unseen footage and rare conversations with the woman herself.
As the trailer below shows, Jones has always been very much in charge of her own image, declaring that sometimes, ‘you have to be high flying bitch,’ as she applies make up with precision in the back of a limo, set to the beat of her hit, “Pull Up to the Bumper”.
