Grace Jones

1:48 PM

Perhaps it's because I heard "Ride Up To My Bumper", this morning that reminded me of Grace Jones, but when I started to put together the list of famous people who inspire me, she was the first in the list. So why is she on the list? She's ballsy, she's not a conventional beauty, she has done so much in her lifetime, she is a cult figure and she lives life on her terms. What's not to like?!?


Everyone has to make their own decisions. I still believe in that. You just have to be able to accept the consequences without complaining.

I perform all the time, but my fans have to track me down. I don't do press. I go underground.

I get bored. I provoke things to happen without even realizing it. I just follow my instincts. I don't think about it, really.

I wasn't born this way. One creates oneself. I believe whatever I dream. Whatever I dream, I want t do.

I've always been a rebel. I never do things the way they're supposed to be done. Either I go in the opposite direction or I create a new direction for myself, regardless of what the rules are or what society says.

If you're out there you're vulnerable. People prefer to disappear in life, to repress their personality. That's not living. It's dying. I see them al over the place, the walking dead.
