Happy birthday, Grace Jones! The performer turned 66 this week (May 19, 2014).

They broke the mold when they made Ms. Beverly Grace Jones, a pop culture icon that will never cease to shock and amaze us.

It’s hard to believe that the once shy, university student studying to be a Spanish teacher, would one day grow up to be the same woman performing at the Queen’s Jubilee dressed in a revealing leotard while hula-hooping to the beat!
