Grace Jones played a pop hits set to close Latitude Festival‘s second night (Saturady July 18) – but it was the 61-year old’s inbetween banter which really let her personality exude from the stage.

Some samples include “Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wooooowwwww!!!! Am I on the moon?” and “Give me something to suck on, please. I’m a little thirsty.”

Jones’ set included the essential Grace tracks “My Jamaican Guy”, “Demolition Man” and “Slave To The Rhythm.”
