Grace Jones & Rick James - a photo

I've never seen this photo before. It's just so amazing in so many ways. It's dated February 23, 1983, at the 25th Annual Grammy awards.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I wonder, did Prince ever meet Grace Jones?

I can't imagine they never at least shook hands at a party or something. Grace has mentioned Prince in interviews, say she thought of him as a new gender (in that he never inhabited just one, and spoke to many genders and sexualities).

Of course (so far) the closest Prince connection we know is her working with Wendy & Lisa on "Williams' Blood" from her 2008 Hurricane.

Rick was supposed to have said to Stevie Wonder "You should see Grace Jones' hat"

I believe he got some heat for that statement biggrin

Well it looks like Grace Jones did meet Prince after all, just not quite the one we are thinking of! lol
