Grace Jones has run out of car batteries again! 

While Lady Gaga and Madonna are fighting over which one of them is... more like Madonna, and Katy Perry and Cheryl Cole are faux snogging on chat shows, Grace Jones proves at 64 that she’s more genuinely eccentric than the rest of them put together.

At this weekend’s Lovebox festival at Victoria Park in London, the singer and former Bond girl asked for two car batteries for her rider. She neglected to explain exactly what said batteries were for, but she also asked for a scaffolding pole that was exactly 21 foot long.

I’m hoping that her bizarre rider was either down to the fact that a) she's secretly an inventor who’s perfected an age-defying machine that runs on car batteries or b) she's a crazy hoarder lady who fills her many homes with random bits of industrial equipment.

Of course, it could just be that she needed the equipment for her stage show, but where’s the fun in that?
