Proud Of Being A Stripper

In a recent interview with Time Out London, Dita Von Teese says that she is proud of being a stripper.


I get asked this question a lot, what’s the difference between stripping and burlesque, and my answer is ‘more feathers and rhinestones’….Striptease/burlesque was invented in America. A burlesque show was a show, and the stars of the show were striptease artists. When you read anything that Gypsy Rose Lee ever wrote, she liked being called a stripper, that word was used back then. I don’t really need any fancy terminology to describe what I do. I never correct someone when they say ‘she’s a stripper.’ I’m like, ‘yeah I am.’ I’m proud of what I do and the history of striptease and burlesque.

We couldnt agree more !
