She said: “When they go to the movies, people want to see a little nudity. With burlesque, I show what I want to show. It’s not related to my real sex life at all. It’s like make-up, body make-up, spotlights, rhinestones, feathers. It’s sensual, but nothing close to the real sex. And meanwhile, I’m considered racy. But I’m in control as a woman. Is it when you’re out of control, and your sex tape comes out, and you’re like ‘Whoa, whoa, I didn’t mean it, I’m apologising’ [that you’re accepted]? I think maybe because I am giving it to people in a way, and I’m not apologising, there’s this whole thing.”
