Grace Jones (born Grace Mendoza, May 19, 1952 in Spanish Town, Kingston, Jamaica; 1948 and 1954 have also been listed as her year of birth) is a model, singer and actress.

Jones is known for her post-modern costuming and performance, at which she dressed in men's clothing and gorilla suits. She gained a reputation for temperament after she physically attacked British chat show host, Russell Harty, because he turned his back on her to speak to another guest.

Musically, she began singing disco, then moved on into quirky pop and reggae, featuring big names in Jamaican music on albums such as Nightclubbing. Later, she recorded hip-hop flavored dance music.

She was a Bond girl in A View to a Kill, a 1985 movie in the James Bond series of films.
