Paul Morley: What did you want to be when you were seventeen?
Grace Jones: Not bored.
Paul Morley: And what was the first thing you did to alter that situation of being bored?
Grace Jones: I floated on a cloud.
Paul Morley: Like we all do I suppose?
Grace Jones: Not all of us… just the lucky ones.
Paul Morley: And then what happened? You fell off the cloud?
Grace Jones: I don’t think I ever came down from that cloud. It was wonderful.

As this living legend turned 70 this year, it is time for us to honour her 4 decennia long career with a rate counting 50 songs, including all of her singles and some additions. Not only is Grace a slave to the rhythm, producing a variety of music with influences of disco, new wave and r&b, she is also a visual artist whose album covers are unforgettable graphic masterpieces. Moreover her live performances border the realm of performance art, featuring her avant-garde & genderbending wardrobe, simple yet dramatic choreographies that are enlarged or stretched out, and the vocal range and stamina of an opera singer. No wonder this female Bowie was an inspiration to many of your favourite artists. Now she needs a man, perhaps that man is you? Let’s find out which Grace is Popjustice’s top pick!
