Who Am I ?


August 2011

1: Who am I?

DeeDee Luxe. A performance artist, burlesque sex bomb, touring dancer. Glamorously perverted and delightfully twisted.

2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

Making her start as a touring dancer for rock bands and events for the likes of Janes Addiction, and Lollapalooza, etc. DeeDee continues to perform locally and internationally doing performance art and burlesque, creating her own brand of entertainment ranging from the beautiful to the disturbing. More recently, she is focusing on turning sex toys into functioning props for her shows (namely her “White Horse” piece). In addition, she is dabbling more in film and can be seen dancing nightly in a touring stage video for “The Wall Tour” for Pink Floyds’ Roger Waters, as well as making her big screen debut opposite X-Mens’ Michael Fassbender in a steamy threesome scene in the upcoming movie “Shame“.

3: Where are you from and where are you going?

Originally from “Paradise Island”, DeeDee was raised by a tribe of half naked amazon warrior women. She then found herself located in Philly, San Francisco, New York City, and is riding her way into outer space with the help of her horse Sybian.

4: Who is your biggest hero?

La Cicciolina. What’s not to love? A gorgeous porn star, nudist-turned-politician who delivered speeches topless!

5: What book is your bible?

Diane Brills’ Boobs, Boys, and High Heels (-or getting dressed in just under six hours).

6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?

Loves: boots, high heels, running with my dog, collecting paintings of monkeys, disco, dancing, great food, delicious wine, and laughing out load hard.

Hates: taxi drivers that stop and ask you “where are you going?” then don’t take you. Also, taxi drivers that take you, and don’t know where they’re going!

7: What is your raison d’être?

To show the world that contrary to common belief, you can indeed trust a “big butt and a smile.”

8: What is your favorite color?

The colors that emanate when a disco ball is spinning.

9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

Ultraman, and the entire Ultra family. Although, I always have a soft spot for Godzilla in the end… he has a family too after all.

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

I can’t divulge exact addresses but, the underground poker rooms of NYC that I plan to dominate by tilting tables with my skills and womanly powers!

11: What turns you on?

The five D’s… Diamonds, Dollas’, Disco, Dildos, Diana (Ross).

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only choose one album to listen to for the rest of your life, what would it be?
