michelle obama award for physical fitness (sofa awards 2012)

December 27, 2012

The ninth annual sofa awards… keep coming back as more recipients are revealed throughout the rest of the year.

33We don’t see a lot of Grace Jones these days. And, I’m quite sure there is a whole generation of youngsters who might not even recognize her name. I’m not going to get into what a tragedy that is. If you’re reading this, you already know what I am saying. That being said, the 64-year-old diva schooled each and every one of us this summer at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert when she came onstage and gave us 4 minutes and 21 seconds of “Slave To the Rhythm.” And all the while she was twisting and turning inside a hula hoop. Yes. A hula hoop.
