Grace Jones used to be ad­dicted to weight lift­ing

Kuwait Times - - Lifestyle | Gossip -

The 69-year-old singer and model - who was signed to Wil­helmina Mod­el­ling agency aged 18 - has ad­mit­ted she used to work out “ev­ery morn­ing and ev­ery evening” and would even train with Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger in a bid to stay in shape, al­though she doesn’t weight lift “any­more”. Speak­ing to Time Out mag­a­zine, the star said: “I don’t do weightlift­ing any more, though. I used to be ad­dicted to it. I was do­ing it ev­ery morn­ing and ev­ery evening. Don’t for­get I was work­ing out with Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger and Dolph Lund­gren. Th­ese are se­ri­ous body­builders. “Nowa­days I just have to make sure I can still pull up my whole body by my­self.” Al­though the ‘Slave to the Rhythm’ has ditched the weights, she has ad­mit­ted she main­tains her slen­der frame by car­ry­ing out car­dio ses­sions in­stead. Asked how she stays in shape, she said: “Oh my good­ness. Well, I swim, I cy­cle. I do soft sports now. And of course it helps if you’re born with it too.” Mean­while, Grace has re­vealed when she goes on a night out the “most im­por­tant thing” for her is to be left alone and not spo­ken to so she can dance. She ex­plained: “Oh def­i­nitely. But I have to party by my­self. I don’t like to talk at par­ties. Danc­ing is the most im­por­tant thing for me. I tell peo­ple: ‘Don’t try and talk to me, let me dance.’ I’ve al­ways been like this. I used to go to Tramps in Lon­don years ago with, you know, Du­ran Du­ran, Christo­pher Walken and [Robert] De Niro. I’d just tell the DJ what to play and dance.”
