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 Wäsche 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 Playboy. 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.

After @giagenevieve gave an incredibly sensual debut #burlesque performance in front of 1800+ people on New Year’s Eve to rave reviews, I’ve asked her to join us in #australia for #artoftheteese. Working with her to perform my #bubblebath act was an absolute delight, and I’ve never seen anyone take the stage for the first time EVER and get so many accolades. Her beauty is only matched by her warmth and sensuality. Here she is in the very same bathtub that I performed many memorable shows all over the world, from the #Playboy Mansion to my own debut as the first guest stay in history @crazyhorseparis_official. We open the tour in Perth on February 15th and move around the country. Don’t miss it. Tickets are available for the newly-added shows, visit Artoftheteese.com 📷 by @sanchezzalba

Good morning to you and Happy New Year! I just want to thank everyone that came to our #stripteesenye last night, everyone looked fantastic dressed to the nines, and I loved seeing familiar faces that came from the East Coast, Europe, Tokyo and more! I feel much gratitude today for my hardworking crew; it’s not easy putting up a one-nighter, it takes weeks of prep and a whopper of a show day. They start at 6am and they were still loading out when I left at 3am. I’m also grateful to the cast, many of them flying in just for this show, and some debuting new acts last night, which I can tell tell you is daunting in front of 1800 people. I’m very proud of @giagenevieve for fearlessly making her #burlesque debut on that historic stage, her warmth and genuine kindness shining. Thank you @livenation and The Theatre at the Ace for helping support my shows; I almost retired a couple years ago, and now I feel like I’m just getting started. Next stop is Australia February and March, and then a brand-new show touring springtime in the US. In the fall, we are coming to Europe! Happy 2018❣️

Over the moon to ring in 2018 with you tomorrow!✨🍾 We are sold-out to the rafters and it seems that we have ticket holders flying in from all over the world!! I came up with this new hashtag #stripteesenye because I’d love to see photos of your night, from what you’re planning to wear, who you’re going with, and new people you meet at the show, etc. I know that many of you have made new friends coming to my shows, and I really love that. So just add #stripteesenye to your posts so we can share photos. 📷 by @franzszony with hair by @hisvintagetouch #swarovski jewels by @catherinedlish
