Grace Jones Net Worth $7 Million

Born to a strictly religious family in Jamaica, Grace had quite a timid nature during her childhood. Her skinny frame made her distinct and while she was attending Onondaga Community College in New York as a seventeen year old, she used her distinctiveness to enter modeling. After moving to Paris in 1970 and gaining huge success as a model, Grace appeared on the cover of many reputable magazines, including “En Vogue”, “Elle” among others. As of 1974, Grace had already found her interest in music and signed to Islands Records to release her debut album “Portfolio” in 1977. She found fame as a singer with her album “Nightclubbing” which released in 1981, and went on to being certified platinum and gold in different countries like Australia and Germany.

As she was enjoying her successful career as a singer, Grace also took a step into acting and initiated her acting career in the movie called “Gordon’s War” in 1973. Later, she showed her prominence in acting as she starred in movies like “Siesta”, “Vamp”, “Conan the Destroyer” and many others. She has also acted in television series including “Stryx”, “Beast Master” and more. A head turner everywhere she goes, Grace became successful even as an actress, making her a complete performer. All these projects helped her make her pile of net worth bigger and bigger with time.

Talking about this diva’s personal life, Grace has apparently been married twice in her life but currently is officially single. A mother to a son with Jean-Pauil Goode, Grace then ‘married’ Chris Stanley(1989-91) – she disputes marriage – and Atila Altaunbay(1996-2002). She partnered Dolph Lundgren for four years, but has been in an on-off relationship with Sven-Ole Thorsen since 1990!

Grace has been credited as the inspiration to other famous artists of this generation such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Santigold and many others. Currently, this multi-millionaire diva lives a fabulous life with her son in New York, accommodated by her net worth that amounts $7 million at present. Moreover, given her trendsetting style and striking performing art, Grace has also been honored with a Q Idol Award.

1Bold intense facial structure.
2Her masculine physique.
1I was always really determined to look the way I wanted to look, and I wanted to cut my hair. I wanted to look different because I was used to looking different. Because of my religious background, I'd always been encouraged to look different.
2[on the misconception of her characters in Conan the Destroyer (1984), and Vamp (1986)] I do get hurt, I do cry, I do have feelings. I think it is a nice surprise to see a vulnerable side to me in my music, I'm multifaceted, I think everybody is, I am developing my vulnerable side, and one day it will come out in film.
3[on preparing for the role of Katrina in Vamp (1986)] I read "Interview With a Vampire", my character was based on that character in a sense, it wasn't taken from the book, but I did read that book in order to get the feeling of putting human feelings into it, and I guess I started smoking cigarettes as a habit, just to see what a habit feels like, because I haven't got any.
4[on her mothering] I have one formula that really works, and that is never use a negative word to him (her son), ever. I never said, "no", "don't", "never" - I said, "If you have any more sweeties, all your teeth either are not going to grow, or fall out" or, "if you want to go in the swimming pool - you'll drown".
5[on sexuality, and categorizing one's sexual preferences] Of course I find women attractive, I think that if I didn't - I wouldn't find myself attractive. I think one has to begin first within themselves - then go from there, and for me to say that I don't find women attract would be saying that I don't find myself attractive. It doesn't make me anything, I think it is ridiculous trying to categorize people's feelings or to say what one person prefers, there's no comparison. You can't just say one is better than the other, or one is worse than the other - do what you feel, when you feel like it, if you feel like it.
6[on her aggressive behavior] I think I am aggressive in a positive way, it protects me- it puts everyone on their guard-to be nice to me.
7[on her stage persona] When I perform on stage I become those male bullies, those dominators from my childhood. That's probably why it's so scary, because they scared me.
8[on how she became to be a singer] I never thought I was going to be a singer. That was an accident.
9[on her film career, or lack thereof] After the doing the first big film (Conan the Destroyer (1984)), I realized there was so much time, so much empty space -- always, you know... waiting to be called. Thank God, I've got the music because in all that space, I was writing music.
10[on her gay following] The fact that I get in there and perform during this political time, and have a great time doing it helps. Gays are my best audience.
11[on drug use] Use, don't abuse.
1Many sources give her birth year as 1952.
2She appeared on the Danish TV show Go' Aften Danmark (Good Evening Denmark), helping her old friend Sven-Ole Thorsen promote a new book of his. [May 2007]
3Became friends with Sarah Douglas during the filming of Conan the Destroyer (1984), in fact Grace bought Sarah a motorcycle for her 34th birthday.
4"Bishop Robert W. Jones Way", a street in Syracuse, New York is named after her father, for his community outreach with the Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ.
5Was honored with Q's Idol Award in 2008.
6Her ex-husband, a Hungarian, was born in 1976. He was only 20 years old when they got married, being 28 years younger than his wife.
7Was ranked #19 in Channel 5's "World's greatest supermodel".
8Ranked #82 on VH1's 100 Greatest Women of Rock 'n Roll.
9Sister of Noel Jones, subject of Sophie Fiennes' 2002 documentary, Hoover Street Revival (2002).
10Shocked audience members in 1998 when she exposed her breasts during a Disney World performance. She was banned from the park.
11Was a close friend and confidant of Andy Warhol's and was a member of his entourage. Warhol made a portrait of her.
12Speaks seven languages.
13Was signed to one of New York's top modeling agencies but Grace's looks were too strong for American magazines, so she spent several years in Paris working as a successful model. Yves Saint-Laurent, Claude Montana, and Kenzo Takada hired her for runway modeling, and she appeared on the covers of "Elle", "Vogue", and "Stern" working with Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, and Hans Feurer. She also modeled for 'Azzedine Alaia', and was frequently photographed promoting their line. While modeling in Paris, she shared an apartment with Jerry Hall and Jessica Lange. Hall and Jones frequented Club Sept, one of Paris's most popular gay clubs of the 1970s and '80s, and socialized with Giorgio Armani and Karl Lagerfeld.
14Her androgynous and statuesque style made her extremely successful in New York City's underground and nightlife scenes and her sexually evocative stage shows and songs like "I Need A Man" earned her the title "The Queen of Gay Discos" because of her large following of gay men.
15Lived with Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren for four years, who appeared with her in the Bond film A View to a Kill (1985), though contrary to popular rumor they were never engaged. He was also once her bodyguard.
16Attended the 1986 wedding of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver on Cape Cod with Andy Warhol.
17Was signed to Island Records in 1977 and released her debut album "Portfolio".
18She famously attacked British interviewer Russell Harty when he turned away from her to speak to the other guests on his programme.
19During the 1970s, often attended legendary New York disco Studio 54.
20From a relationship with Jean-Paul Goude she has a son, Paulo (b. 12 November 1979).
