Grace Jones to publish memoir
Explaining the book’s title, Jones said, “I wrote a song called ‘Art Groupie’. First line said ‘I’ll never write my memoirs’ — that was a long time ago. Since then, I thought, if I don’t do it, somebody else will.” (skip to PRE-order button which isn’t in article)
I’ll Never Write My Memoirs will be published on September 29.
Note: If you’re like me – don’t bother furiously searching for a “PRE-ORDER” now button, the article didn’t include one, even though September is like practically next week… YOU CAN PREORDER IT HERE
Never has an Amazon Prime membership felt more valuable! Please let them ship it early.

Evidence of Recognized Same-Sex Relationships is over 4,500 Years Old
But the world is a varied place, and over the millennia of human existence, marriage has meant more than that.
In Kenya, it’s traditional in the Nandi tribe for women to marry women. In northeastern Brazil, some women would take on the roles of men and marry other women. Eskridge describes evidence that marriage between men was practiced during the Yuan and Ming dynasties in China, from the 13th to 17th centuries. Among Chukchi people, living in Siberian, male religious leaders would sometimes marry other men: “The marriage is performed with the usual rites, and I must say that it forms a quite solid union, which often lasts till the death of one of the parties,” one Russian writer reported. And in America, before Europeans settled here, people across the Plains and the Southwest would cross gender boundaries and marry people of their own sex.

The selection of clothing was subtle and, relating to Andre’s age and personality, I asked him what he would choose had he been a woman.

Instagram may have birthed the careers of countless models, bloggers and what-do-they-actually-do? internet personalities, but its importance in the fashion world is vastly overrated.

My Kind of Photographs
Earlier this month, Prestel published 1-2-3-4 by Anton Corbijn, the legendary photographer and director. This oversized book, which includes 300 black-and-white photographs and a handful of color images, accompanies an exhibition of the same name now hanging at the Fotomuseum Den Haag, in The Hague, Netherlands.
