I hate commercialized so called "burlesque" shows, nightclubs and dance troupes. If I never see another girl group lip sync "Fever" and dance around in fishnet hose, chicken feather boas and mix-matched lingerie, it will be too soon. American classic burlesque was made famous by the striptease artists, and they took off their clothes. End of story. Burlesque was not a fashion style, so why is it that in the 1930's in burlesque audiences enjoyed gorgeous girls stripping and now 78 years later, burlesque is being sanitized? It's an insult to the stars of burlesque like Gypsy Rose Lee, Lili St. Cyr who stripped to pasties and g-strings and the fabulous Sally Rand-- who prided herself in dancing so perfectly buck-naked while still maintaining her mystery. It's important to me to keep the real, authentic, risque art of the real burlesque alive and well, not to rewrite it to suit the censors, or to cash in on a trend by destroying it." - Dita von Teese
