Intro for September 10, 2015
When you get a chance later, please read this excerpt from Grace Jones’s upcoming autobiography. Jones is 67 years old. But even when she was 27 she had no f-cks to give about talking sh-t. Now she’s talking sh-t about her “pupils”: Gaga, Madonna, Annie Lennox, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Miley, Kanye West, FKA twigs, and… “Doris” (we’ll come back to Doris later). Nicki Minaj gets thrown in there too at some point. What she’s saying is that she was first. And remains the only. The best part about that is that when it comes to Grace Jones, there’s not going to be a diss track. No one is coming for Grace Jones.
As for “Doris” – it’s a name she’s given to another artist who really wanted to work with her and she rejected the invitation. She says Doris is lost. She mentions Vegas and “sparkly full length gowns”, a “baby dressed in a closet full of other people’s clothes”. Some think she’s talking about Britney. I wondered if she’s talking about Mimi.
Oh wait. But then Grace says that Doris dances like Madonna. OK yeah, no. Not Mimi. Because we all know, no one would describe what Mimi does as “moving”. So…back to Britney?
She confirmed last night that she’s extended her Vegas residency by two years.
I guess the Spears Corporation was happy with the deal.
