Dita Comes To London!

Dita Von Teese arrived in London this week to perform at the Arts Club in Mayfair – and promised there would be more to come for the capital. The burlesque queen performed two of her signature routines – the fan dance and the bath tub dance – enthralling guests including a certain Lady Gaga.

Her famous bath tub extravaganza features a black roll top bath, on which the performer perches while turning on the shower for an erotic soaking. The most famous burlesque dancer then takes a dip in her bath, teasing the audience with a ballet trained leg.

Dita later tweeted that she was looking to bring her ‘Strip Strip Hooray’ show to London soon.

Lover of all things theatrical, Lady Gaga, turned up to watch the show in a wedding-esque gown and mini veil – on anyone else we would think it bizarre – but Gaga pulls it off.

Lady Gaga Inspired Burlesque?

Lady Gaga was surrounded with fresh controversy this week, following her debut performance of ‘Lady Die’, a song inspired by the late Princess Diana. As the mega star continues the Australian leg of her tour it seems she is angering Diana fans and suicide prevention groups, with lyrics referring to the star taking her own life. Oh dear….. although we have to say that on the list of real shockers from Gaga, this is probably not in the top 10 and seems quite a natural progression from her earlier songs. What we were particularly interested to see was the inspired burlesque outfit she sported while posing with fans in Melbourne. A chunky padlocked collar, matching black bra, nipple pasties and retro rolled hair! We can see a burlesque performance sprouting just from this outfit!
