Well, the real title of this Daily Mail article is “Topless Grace Jones, 67, covers her age-defying figure in tribal body paint and a corset as she puts on a typically unique performance at Parklife festival,” but I don’t give a “flying fish” about whether she was topless or not. Grace Jones rules, regardless of whether she is 67 and still singing up a storm, whether she shows her painted chest in public, or wears war paint or a gold skull mask! She is simply amazing. Here are excerpts of the article:
She may have reached retirement age, but Grace Jones clearly has no intention of slowing down. The 67-year-old flamboyant singer wowed fans when she performed topless and covered in tribal body paint in front of a crowd of thousands at Parklife on Sunday. Grace leapt energetically around the stage in a revealing black corset and a show-stopping grass skirt as she performed hits including Slave to the Rhythm and Nightclubbing.
The Jamaican-born star smothered her face, chest, arms and legs in white tribal body paint and capped her unusual look with a bright yellow head-piece. She added to her dramatic look with dark lipstick, bright-red eyeshadow and statement jewellery. Grace made her entrance on the main stage on the second day of the Manchester festival in a chilling gold skull mask which also featured a black feathered head piece.
The Pull Up to the Bumper singer initially covered her age-defying body in a floor-length black coat and stepped out in brown heels. As she belted out her tunes, Grace pushed the extravagant mask up over her forehead and started hula-hooping as a male backing dancers performed acrobatics on a pole. She had several outfit changes and was seen on stage in a brown fringed coat and a bright red snood.
The model and actress unashamedly showed off her muscular figure, which drew praise from concert goers, who took to social media to applaud the star.
One called the star ‘an inspiration’ and others praised her ability to break boundaries by not letting age define her performance. [. . .]
