Grace Jones has dispelled the one of the great rock and roll myths about the sexual meaning of her track Pull Up To The Bumper.
The singer bravely agreed to being given a probing in our monthly Cash For Questions feature in the forthcoming edition of Q, on sale December 31.
And, perhaps predictably, the star was asked about the meaning behind her top 20 hit which includes the line “grease it/spray it/let me lubricate it” which is widely thought to be all about anal sex.
But Jones, aged 60, laughed off the idea. “I don’t think it’s necessarily about that. I think it means whatever you want it to. Because I kind of like the doggy position myself, but that doesn’t mean it’s going up me arse.”
You can read the full interview in Q271 from December 31.
