Don’t Ya Just Love Dita?
Quote of the day:
“When I was little I remember watching Jane Mansfield in The Girl Can’t Help It and making a promise that when I grew up I was going to have curves like that… I’ve never made a secret of having my breasts done. I’m proud of it. The message I want to get out is that anyone can do this. Honestly, without my bag of tricks I am pretty ordinary– it’s just that I have a pretty nice bag of tricks.
~ Dita Von Teese in People
And just cuz I love you people here’s a picture of the magnificent Dita:
I mean really, what alterna-girl worth her docs doesn’t idolize Dita and even sort of see a bit of herself reflected in her glimmering tassles? Think about it. She’s a self made woman who’s risen from Midwestern obscurity. Openly imperfect, she’s even had a shitty ex or two (Marilyn Manson… Ew. What was she thinking?) but she’s managed to make a life and a career for herself doing things her own way. What more could you ask for?
Sometime when I’m not totally busy (ha!) I’ll do some serious blogging about the burlesque scene and how in addition to being an art form I think it is one of the best things to happen to female body image in the media in a long time. Today, however, is not that day.
Enjoy the Dita, kids!
