Biografie von Dita von Teese

Bereits im Teenageralter war Heather Renée Sweet klar, dass sie, anders als ihr Nachname suggeriert, kein süßes Mädchen sein wollte. Als 15-Jährige schaute sie am liebsten 40er-Jahre-Filme mit Pin-Up-Star Betty Grable, regelmäßig warf der Teenie heimlich einen Blick in die Playboy-Hefte seines Vaters. Immer stärker wurde Heathers Überzeugung, dass echte Frauen Seidenstrümpfe und Strapshalter tragen sollten.

Faible für Wäsche

So gediegen ihr Wunschtraum, so unglamourös war Heathers wirkliches Leben: Als Aushilfe eines Pizza-Services in ihrer Heimatstadt Irvine verdiente sie sich etwas Geld dazu - um es sofort im benachbarten Dessousgeschäft in Reizwäsche anzulegen. Ihre ausgeprägte Leidenschaft für schöne  hinterließ einen derart bleibenden Eindruck, dass der Dessousladen Heather 1988 kurzerhand einstellte. So bekam die angehende "" erstmals Gelegenheit, ihren balletttrainierten Körper in ein Korsett zu schnüren und ihren Fetisch dafür zu entdecken.

Verwandlung zur Burlesque Queen

In den darauf folgenden Jahren machte eine rasante Wandlung durch: Das blonde Mädchen aus Orange County färbte sich ihr Haar erst rot, dann schwarz. Sie begann, sich für Jobs als Fetischmodel zu interessieren und ging nach ihrem High-School-Abschluss nach L.A., wo sie als Go-Go Tänzerin in die Rave-Szene eintauchte. Der einfache Tanz an der Stange stellte sie nicht wirklich zufrieden. Heather wollte ihre Liebe zur Vintage-Lingerie auch auf der Bühne leben und begann, sich nach und nach als kunstvolle Striptease-Tänzerin im Retro-Look einen Namen zu machen. Sie legte sich den Künstlernamen "Dita" zu - nach ihrem Idol, dem Stummfilmstar Dita Parlo. Ihre Shows wurden zu Highlights der Erotik-Szene und legten den Grundstein zu dem Kultstatus, den sie in den folgenden Jahren erreichen sollte. Ihr Bad in einem überdimensionalen Martiniglas ist schon heute legendär, auch ein Karussell-Pferd, die Badewanne und eine riesige Puderdose gehören zu ihren festen Requisiten.

Etablierung als Dita von Teese

Den endgültigen Durchbruch als Star der "New Burlesque", der Kunst sinnlicher Entblößung, brachte Dita schließlich ein Fotoshooting für das Cover des . Durch die Aufnahmen erlangte sie 1999 nicht nur Bekanntheit weit über die Szene hinaus, sondern kam auch zu dem Namen, unter dem wir sie heute kennen: "Dita von Teese". Der Playboy hatte ihr nahegelegt, ihren Künstlernamen "Dita" durch einen Nachnamen zu ergänzen. Ein rascher Blick ins Telefonbuch brachte die damals 27-Jährige auf "Von Treese". Einen Tippfehler des Magazins später war die Künstlerin "Dita von Teese" geboren - und die sorgt seither immer wieder für Aufsehen: So entstand 2004 beispielsweise ein Videoclip für das britische Dessouslabel "Agent Provocateur", in dem Dita Von Teese in einer A.P.-Uniform mit einem ""-Double Sadomaso-Spiele inszeniert.

Ehe mit Marilyn Manson

Im Dezember des darauf folgenden Jahres heiratete sie ihren langjährigen Freund, den Schockrocker . Doch als Dita 2006 bei den Haute-Couture-Schauen als Model für den Kultdesigner lief und intensiv an der Veröffentlichung ihres Buches "Burlesque and the Art of the Teese" arbeitete, blieb die Liebe auf der Strecke. Am 29. Dezember 2006 erklärte sie das Experiment Ehe für beendet und reichte die Scheidung ein. Ganz spießbürgerlich stritten sich die beiden hinterher auch noch um das Sorgerecht für die gemeinsamen Katzen.

Was hinter all ihrem Glamour niemand vermutet: Dita hat "unglaubliche Angst vor Zurückweisung." Wer diese Frau zurückweisen würde, muss vermutlich erst noch geboren werden. Doch es ist beruhigend, dass selbst ein Star wie Frau Dita von Teese vor Selbstzweifeln nicht gefeit ist.

Greetings from Moscow! Thank you @frolburimskiy for taking me around on this beautiful day, with the huge lilac trees in full bloom, the scent filling the air. I've been to Moscow many times in the past, but I can't recall spending a more beautiful day. Loved visiting the Gorky House this afternoon, and as usual, I made a stop at the spectacular Diamond Fund exhibit.

Loved seeing a film at The Theatre at The Ace last night in Los Angeles. I'm so excited to bring The Art of the Teese to this magnificent venue for one night only July 28th! I've performed at many of these historic theatres over the years, but this is one of the most spectacular, and now that downtown LA is having a second Golden Age with all the new restaurants, I think it's bound to be an extra glamorous night. I'm also bringing this all-new production to San Diego, Anaheim, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Denver, Seattle and Riverside. Visit artoftheteese.com for details Also want to say how grateful I am for the response, we broke records with the ticket sales in the presale phase alone!
