Grace Jones’ I’m Not Perfect (But I’m Perfect for You) is a fine Keith Haring tribute

There are so many reasons to post this 1986 classic this morning. Firstly, it’s a banger – drenched in 80s soft focus and colour. Secondly, Keith Haring draws a massive 60 ft dress for her to wear (3 minutes seven seconds), and the anniversary of his death was on Saturday. Thirdly, Andy Warhol’s in it (36s) looking amazing. And finally, doesn’t that blue backdrop at the beginning twinned with powerful black songstress remind you of the incredible new Gentlewoman cover?
