One of the most visually iconic performers of all time, Grace Jones went from successful international model to Andy Warhol's muse to dance-club disco diva in the late 1970s. After embracing new wave music and an androgynous look, she became a superstar in Europe and in underground U.S. circles with songs like "Pull Up to the Bumper," "Private Life," and "Slave to the Rhythm," and the seminal albums Warm Leatherette, Nightclubbing and Slave to the Rhythm. Her Grammy-nominated "One Man Show" tour proved wildly influential, and launched her into a film career that earned her roles as the Amazon warrior Zula in the Arnold Schwarzenegger fantasy sequel "Conan the Destroyer" (1984), the superhuman villainess May Day in the James Bond movie "A View to a Kill" (1985), and as a sexy vampire queen in the horror comedy "Vamp" (1986). Making headlines for her mid-1980s relationship with Dolph Lundgren, Jones sent up her own endlessly out-there image as the fittingly named Strangé in Eddie Murphy's comedy "Boomerang" (1992) and made a triumphant return to music with 2008's acclaimed Hurricane. A true original, Jones was rightfully credited as the inspiration for countless artists who followed, including Annie Lennox and Lady Gaga, and for her far-reaching collaborations with famed artists like Jean-Paul Goude and Keith Haring. Although mainstream America remembered her best for her film work and instantly recognizable appearance - both glamorous and hard-edged - Grace Jones fearlessly assembled an eclectic, intelligent body of work unlike any other.
