on classic burlesque and a fear of being beautiful

real talk: doing straight-up classic burlesque terrifies me. I’m much more comfortable playing a character, being funny, telling a story, and/or making things real weird. thanks Eva D’Luscious for challenging me to bring my sassy stripper game, and to all my fellow performers last night for the compliments. it’s nice to stretch that classic muscle a bit, to get up on that stage and simply enjoy myself and share that sexy joy with the audience. I’m grateful for an art form that allows me to move freely through all of my different selves, and offers me endless opportunities to surprise both myself and the audience.
