Burlesque Quotes


“A naked dog for a naked lady.” – Gypsy Rose Lee

“Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.” – Mae West

“I was performing in this burlesque group, and we would go to dance rehearsals every day. You’d use every part of your body. Even though some of it is slow, it takes a lot of muscle to dip down and come back up.” – Carmen Electra

“Burlesque girls were alchemists. They were steel-tough performers who were willing to use kitchens as dressing rooms, hauls their costume bags through the snow, and go into debt over fake diamonds, all for the five minutes onstage when they were goddesses.”
– Molly Crabapple
