Grace Jones, the former "Bond girl" and girlfriend of Dolph Lundgren, gave a concert at Circus in Stockholm.

Her strength, in addition to her well-preserved voice, is caper, devil horns, Catwoman and Batman-inspired masks, strip poles and thong bodysuits.

Whether Jones was born in 1948 or 1952 (as it so often contentious), she is crazy energetic and just as entertaining now as back in the days.

"My greatest love, action star Dolph Lundgren, is from Sweden, as you know. He was big in every way," Grace jokingly told us.

Wikipedia on Grace Jones:
Grace Jones was born in Jamaica, she has got many talents working as singer, model and actress.

Jones started out as a model and became a muse to Andy Warhol, who photographed her extensively. During that era she regularly went to the New York City nightclub Studio 54.

Grace secured a record deal with Island Records in 1977, which resulted in a string of dance-club hits. In the late 1970s, she adapted the emerging electronic music style and adopted a severe, androgynous look with square-cut hair and angular, padded clothes.

Many of her the singles were hits on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play and Hot Dance Airplay charts, for example 1981 "Pull Up to the Bumper", which spent seven weeks at #2 on the U.S. dance chart. Jones was able to find mainstream success in Europe, particularly the United Kingdom, scoring a number of Top 40 entries on the UK Singles Chart.

Her most notable albums are Warm Leatherette, Nightclubbing and Slave to the Rhythm, while her biggest hits (other than "Pull Up to the Bumper") are "I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)", "Private Life", "Slave to the Rhythm" and "I'm Not Perfect (But I'm Perfect for You)".

Jones is also an actress. Her acting occasionally overshadowed her musical output in America; but not in Europe, where her profile as a recording artist was much higher. Her work as an actress in mainstream film began in the 1984 fantasy-action film Conan the Destroyer alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the 1985 James Bond movie A View to a Kill (1985).
