Out of all the AMAZING performances during last night's Diamond Jubilee concert in London, which celebrated Queen Elizabeth II becoming the second British monarch to reach the 60-year landmark, we have to say that THIS was certainly the most EYE-CATCHING!
But what else would you expect from Grace Jones?!
Ch-ch-check out the 64-year-old showing us all how it's done with her BADASS performance of Slave To The Rhythm, during which she, herself, was a slave to the rhythm of a hula-hoop…which she kept moving the ENTIRETY of the song (above)!
Yeah. Again, in case you forgot: this woman is 64!
Man, we hate to take any of her majesty's thunder away from her on such a momentous occasion, but we just have to:
All hail the QUEEN Grace Jones! Ha!

Grace Jones continued being her usual fierce self at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert in London on Monday night.
Not only was she wearing a shiny red and black body suit and show-stopping red headdress, she also hula-hooped through her entire four minute performance.
It's hard to believe this woman is 64 years old! We hope to be just like her when we grow up one day!

Kate Moss celebrated the New Year in Jamaica with good friends, lots of booze and skinny dipping.
The supermodel along with her husband Jamie Hince, Grace Jones and Chris Blackwell kicked off their New Year's Eve festivities at a beach party. It wasn't long before Kate stole the mic and treated the locals to a drunken rendition of Blondie's Rapture.
A spywitness told The Sun:

Oh no! Two of our favorite ladies are at odds! What are we to do???
The uber-talented and epic diva Bette Midler told British magazine that she's unimpressed with the magic Lady GaGa creates.
To fair, she gives GaGalicous props for her "beautiful voice" and talented songwriting skills, but when she compares GaGa to her favorite artist, Grace Jones, Bette feels GaGa falls short. Bette was quoted as saying:
"She's a terrific player, has a beautiful voice and is a good songwriter. The stuff around her? Nah, not so much. I have my heroines and one of them is Grace Jones, and I don't think anyone could touch Grace."
Sure, okay, fine. Maybe she can, maybe she can't. Personally, we think you have to respect each of them for their own unique styles and bringing something different to art of music. Neither should be labeled better or worse than the other.

Join the club!!
Janet Jackson recently told Larry King in an interview that she loves Lady GaGa for her talent and even compared her to model Grace Jones.
"I love her. I enjoy her music. I feel that she came along and she introduced something a little bit different for the people of today. For myself, I don’t mean this in a negative way at all, it’s a little reminiscent of Grace Jones, how big and out there her costumes are.
I think she is very talented; she writes her own music and has a wonderful voice. I had the opportunity of meeting her for the first time, at a concert of hers. I knew of her before she became the Lady GaGa everyone knows. Her story was incredible and when I knew of this artist, I was rooting for her before she had gotten this recording contract."
Can you imagine if these two did a duet together?? OMG please, please, please MAKE this happen!!

"I am more vintage than I am high fashion. I love Lady GaGa, but I would never try and go into her lane. She’s brilliant. But what I do love is the image of Grace Jones, David Bowie and Janet. The sound of my music is 90’s dance pop meets future, so I want to incorporate that in my fashion."
