Are you surprised to have been nominated?
I was most certainly surprised to be nominated! I am honoured, and happy to have so much love and support from the burlesque community.




How important is it to be recognized by the burlesque community for what you do?
I feel as though my purpose in life is to be a beacon of inspiration, and healing. I wouldn’t say that it’s important to be recognized because most of my contributions are kept a secret. I will say that it’s important to me to use burlesque as a platform to heal, love, and inspire!


All the groups in your category are fantastic, but what make your acts and style unique?
My approach to burlesque is unique because I celebrate classic burlesque with a modern twist. I also focus on giving to the audience, and celebrating my imperfections on stage. People really relate to this, and are often moved to tears. I think that is what makes me unique. It’s hard to move a person to tears.
Any exciting projects coming up?
My latest endeavour is the House of Noire. I have brought together an amazing group of women in NY to create burlesque history. I am not showcasing a burlesque troupe, but creating a legendary house! I’m negotiating with a casino at the moment. Fingers crossed!




Where does your name come from?
The name was given to me by my mentor, Dollie Rivas. Although, it was also one of the many taglines for my muse, Josephine Baker! I was beyond elated when Dollie gave me that name.


Where do you get your inspiration from?
My inspiration for my acts come from my tears, and triumphs! Each act is a representation of my life story.


How many hours a week do you rehearse?
25-30 hours a week.


How often do you come up with a new routine?
I don’t have a lot of routines. It takes me about a year or two to feel confident enough to bring my artistry to the stage. I believe in taking my time, and training properly.


How nervous do you get before getting on stage?
I am extremely nervous before each performance! And honestly, I will retire the day I stop being nervous.


What do you like most about the burlesque industry?
I love having access to the living legends! It’s an honour!


What’s your favourite routine?
My tribute to the African goddess, Oshun!

In your opinion, what makes an exceptional burlesque troupe?
You have to dance with your heart! That makes any burlesque performance stellar!

If all of that wasn’t enough, how does this grab you: PRIZES. Goodies from Rosie The Rebel, Adrenaline Piercing and Tattoos, CDs from Warner Music Canada, and “surprises”… If you’re still wanting more than a thirsty hobo in Mooers Forks, how about this: everyone who buys a ticket to this shindig and the subsequent events is entered to win a pair of hockey tickets to a Habs home game, in the swanky Desjardins section: FREE HOTDOGS.
