If Grace Jones finds herself flicking through Paper this month, no doubt she'll be adding FKA Twigs to the list of people inspired by her. There's no denying how powerful the singer looks here...

The main nuggets garnered from the interview seem to involve the 27-year-old's desire to have kids one day and her thoughts on Taylor Swift: "I think Taylor Swift is great, but I wouldn't necessarily think, ‘Oh my god, I have to be friends with her... When I meet fans, they're quite creative and intelligent, kind, sensitive. Some are old ladies, witch doctors from Louisiana, kids that have just left art school. Gay or lesbian couples, straight middle-aged couples...I'm honest, and that comes out."
As for remaining shtum regarding her very famous fiancee, and the backlash she received since news broke of their relationship, the singer added: "I’m not affected by what fans would think, or by people critiquing what I do." That aside, she was happy to reveal her life plan, and it's - in her own words - very traditional.
"I grew up in Gloucestershire, and there's a certain format that people fit into. And I'm actually quite happy with that format. I'm quite happy to say, ‘Go to school, work hard on your GCSEs, do your A-Levels, get married, have children. I just like working hard and learning things. I do this because I want my children to have a nice life, and I want my children's children to have a nice life. And I want my grandkids to be proud of what I've achieved. And I want to be a role model, but not for the world. I don't mind about that -- that'll come or it won't come. It's no different from being a car salesman. Imagine if I said to a car salesman, ‘Why are you doing that?’ [They'd say] ‘Cause I want to work hard, and I want to have a nice life, and when I have kids, I want to be able to buy a house.’ It's still the same values."
