Grace Jones performs in Detroit after quitting Bond 25 role

GRACE Jones was back on stage performing last night for the first time since quitting her Bond 25 role.

The star, who left moments after arriving on set of the troubled Bond movie, put on a dramatic show in Detroit.

The icon, 70, was back to business performing in a series of typically quirky outfits.

The Pull Up To My Bumper singer, who owes her toned figure to hula hooping, pulled out the stops wearing a latex corset top and pants.

She went all out wearing white body paint and a garish face mask too.

The show comes after Grace, who played iconic villain May Day in 1985’s A View To A Kill, walked away from the movie after discovering how few lines she’d been given.




Bosses were left frustrated after wasting precious time and money securing a luxury residence for her to stay in near Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire.

A source told the Sun Online: “Grace’s 007 homecoming was meant to be a real crowd-pleasing moment. Bosses were really excited about landing her.

“Of course, she comes with a reputation, so they organised premium accommodation and rolled out the red carpet on set to make her feel welcome.

“But it turns out Grace was expecting to play a bigger role in the movie and took her brief cameo as a slight.

“She was out of there quicker than it takes to rustle up a martini.”

Grace’s cameo, thought to involve a scene opposite Daniel Craig, was first rumoured back in April.

It’s the latest setback to befall Bond 25, which earlier this month was rocked by three huge explosions on set.

The film was delayed after Bond actor Daniel, 51, tweaked ankle ligaments last month, forcing filming to be cancelled.

Despite her antics, Grace has insisted she's not a diva.
She told The Guardian: "Grace Jones is not a diva. She says so in her new memoir, entitled I’ll Never Write My Memoirs, drawling to her friend Kate Moss, “I am not a diva, I am a Jones,” and tells me that she loathes the word. “Diva is so overused. Diva, icons, the whole thing, legends… To be a diva, what is that?”
