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.
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.
I 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.

More about the relationship
Grace Jones’s current relationship status is single.
Grace Jones first met French illustrator, photographer, and director Jean-Paul Goude in 1977 and sought his advice for the creation of her music videos and album artwork.
Goude was instantly attracted to her androgynous appearance and raw sexuality: the relationship that would extend beyond the boundaries of the New York nightclub.
Their relationship helped bring a new culture and drove Jones to the very center of it. Grace and Jean have a son, Paulo in November 1979.
After that, Swedish martial artist Dolph Lundgren was hired as Grace Jones’s bodyguard in the 80s. Eventually, they started going out and he moved in with her into her New York City apartment.

Moreover, Jones got married to her bodyguard Atila Altaunbay in 1996. He was from Turkey and Jones’s open lifestyle eventually proved to be too much for him. One day in a fit of jealousy, he placed a knife on her throat and that did it! Jones wasn’t going to take that from anyone, not even her husband.
Their relationship ended at that very moment. However, they aren’t yet officially divorced and are technically still married. The reason is that Jones doesn’t believe in divorce. In some interviews, she has claimed that he is incommunicado.
In 2006, Grace officially started dating music producer, Ivor Guest, the 4th Viscount Wimborne. During the course of their relationship, it was rumored that she was all set to become a lady of the manor. However, they broke up in 2008 after dating for nearly two years.
