Don't ask me any questions, my personal life is a bore



News from the coolest woman on the planet:
Grace Jones is to tell her life story, despite saying she would never write a memoir.

The singer has signed with Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster, to write a book scheduled to come out next year.

The Jamaican-born model, actress and singer said she changed her mind because "if she didn't do it, someone else would".

Her song Art Groupie began with the line: "I'll never write my memoirs."
Indeed it did - and here it is, in all its magnificence...



I'll never write my memoirs,
There's nothing in my book,
The only way you see me an Art Groupie,
I'm hooked.

Some people like to be used,
I've been used and amused,
But that's the way I see me,
My Art Groupie look.

Love me in a picture,
Kiss me in a cast,
Touch me in a sculpture,
Whisper in my mask.

Don't ask me any questions,
My personal life is a bore,
Admire me in glory,
An Art Groupie. That's all.

Love me in a picture,
Kiss me in a cast,
Touch me in a sculpture,
Whisper in my mask.

I'll never write my memoirs,
There's nothing in my book,
The only way you see me an Art Groupie,
I'm hooked.


Gallery Books said among the stories the 65-year-old planned to share included rooming with Jerry Hall during her model days, collaborating with Andy Warhol, the Studio 54 years and acting with Arnold Schwarzenegger in Conan the Barbarian.

  2. I'm sure we'd need sedatives for that...
