April 13, 2018

Grace Jones was a guest on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last night, where she discussed her new documentary, Bloodlight and Bami. The project, she explains, is about balancing her work ("bloodlight' refers to the red light turned on in the studio when she's recording) and family (bami refers to one of her favorite Jamaican foods). She also talks about immigrating to Syracuse, New York as a child, why she didn't mind taking 12 years to make her documentary, and how an incident at Studio 54 inspired Chic's "Le Freak." Watch the whole interview above.
