Holy crap! Missed this video from the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert. Note that Grace Jones is in her early 60s and keeps that hoop spinning through the whole song.


A Barbarella TV series may be in the works.
Gaumont International Television and producer Martha De Laurentiis are teaming with Drive director Nicolas Refn for a series that will be based on the character created by Jean-Claude Forest in a graphic novel and made famous in the 1968 sci-fi movie staring Jane Fonda as a sexpot tasked with finding and stopping the evil weapons inventor.

Yoko Ono has a new, 14-minute, single out in collaboration with Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon and a full-length album is due out this fall.
