Grace Jones -- the predecessor to Lady Gaga and Queen B of singular performance flamboyance -- is ready to make a statement with "Hurricane," her first recording in 22 years.
The daughter of the late Bishop Robert W. Jones and twin sister of Bishop Noel Jones of the City of Refuge in Gardena, CA Jones is a style, fashion and music icon known for such classic dance club hits as "Pull Up to My Bumper" and "Slave to the Rhythm." Hurricane received widespread praise when it was released in Europe two years ago. The American release will include10 dub-remixes in addition to the original set on a double-disc edition of the record on September 6, 2011.
Jones, 63 is just as bold as ever as she performed recently in a one-piece thong revealing an incredibly toned body that looks like the body of a 40-year-old. The Jamaican American former model said she has kept her youthful appearance by cycling and swimming everyday.
Watch the interview and performance to see just how much of an undeniable influence Jones has been on Lady Gaga!
