Grace Jones joined Jimmy Fallon on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The Jamaican and New York icon appeared partly to talk about Sophie Fiennes’ new documentary, Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami, as well as other aspects of her musical career. The film (which was 12 years in the making) is out today.

Jones revealed the meaning behind the documentary’s name, “When you are in the studio with Sly and Robbie there is a red light that goes on and off when you’re not supposed to go in the recording studio and they say, ‘the bloodlight is on,’ so that’s the bloodlight.” She went on to say, “Bami is a food I love in Jamaica, very healthy, but you can fry it, you can bake it, you can boil it…”

She also took the opportunity with Jimmy Fallon to discuss Studio 54 and how she witnessed Nile Rodgers’ inspiration for the Chic classic “Le Freak.” For that, you’ll have to watch the video below.
