Grace Jones

If you’re a fan of the singer, model and androgynous figure, you probably already knew that Miss Jones was born and raised in Jamaica. The singer is known for songs like “Pull Up to the Bumper,” “Slave to the Rhythm,” for playing Strangé in Boomerang, and for making the fade hot on women. She was born and raised in St. Catherine Parish before her mother picked up and took Jones and her brothers to Syracuse, N.Y. I don’t know why, but I’m not THAT surprised that she is Jamaican. I could just see her whipping that fade back and forth in the dancehalls back in the day (smile).
