Ladies & Gentlemen…heeeeere’s GRACE!!!!

July 31, 2009

So. I finally got to see my fairy-godmother, the viscous diva-extraordinaire, fashion icon and lounge singer, Ms. Grace Jones! This is probably the only concert in the world you happily leave with bits of confetti, glitter, feathers, weave tracks, and sequins stuck somewhere on your body. The pre-show fashion show of concert-goers parading into the Hammerstein Ballroom, was just as interesting as the actual show, and filled with the most unusual characters I thought died off in the 80s. It seems we’ve been all hiding out until Grace made her reappearance in New York! And the 61-year-old showed-off her best art pieces in her 2+ hours of theatrical performance. Even when she went off-stage to get into a new outfit, she recounted sad stories of depression over the state of the music business, encouraged artists and true artistry to prevail, and called shenanigans on famous characters she’s met along the way. One of the these days I might show you my 80s homage to Grace…heehee…if I’m in the mood. For now check these pics!
