Grace Jones Sings While Hula Hooping At The Diamond Jubilee Celebration

You can’t call Grace Jones’ performance at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration anything less than spectacular. She sang “Slave to the Rhythm” while hula-hooping.

Jake Gyllenhaal Channels Grace Jones In Tighty-Whities

Though this photo, of a briefs-donning Jake Gyllenhaal mimicking Grace Jones’ iconic Island Life album cover, has TMZ’s logo on it, it’s nowhere to be found on the site itself.

Quotable: Grace Jones Shuts Lady Gaga Down!

“I really don’t think of [Lady Gaga] at all. I go about my business … Yes, she did, but I said no. I’d just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually … Well, you know, I’ve seen some things she’s worn that I’ve worn, and…

Amber Rose Channels Grace Jones

Kanye West posted this photo of girlfriend Amber Rose on his website, featuring the model recreating Grace Jones’ iconic photo from the cover of her album Island Life. Amber has a way to go before she’s as balls-to-the-wall as Grace, but I have to admit I saw this and was, like, HAWT. [Flavorwire]…
