Dita Von Teese on 'dirty' memoirs

Dita Von Teese

Dita Von Teese has revealed that her autobiography would be filled with dirty stories.

The burlesque star believes her memoirs could be too saucy for publication. Dita - who was previously married to goth rocker Marilyn Manson - would consider writing about her interesting life when she no longer wants to perform.

"In 20 years I am going to be 60. I am definitely not going to be doing my burlesque show in a thong then!" Dita revealed to German fashion magazine Petra. "Maybe I will publish my memoirs, although in 20 years I might not be so keen to give away some of my particularly dirty stories."

Dita has long been regarded as the face of burlesque. She is seen as the iconic figure who has helped revive the seductive strip tease. Dita believes she was born with a purpose to do what she loves and would never contemplate anything but burlesque, despite being offered roles in big Hollywood movies in the past.

"I do get offers but maybe I am not passionate enough when it comes to acting," she explained. "My passion is the world of beauty! I'd rather be famous for what lies in my heart, which is old fashioned beauty and burlesque dancing, than being a famous movie star."
