Dita von Teese surprise appearance at Mika’s Brooklyn concert

“I’ve been a very lucky fan of Dita von Teese this week. First, I saw her perform her infamous feathers and birdcage routine in Sao Paulo (for more from that trip, go here: http://www.mrblasberg.com/2013/04/09/…). While we were down there, she said she was doing a surprise appearance a few days later in Brooklyn. Intrigued, I said I’d go. I showed up at the Musical Hall of Williamsburg to discover she was making an expected cameo at a Mika concert. That Mika. So cute and talented. An added thrill? It was the first time that Dita has ever incorporated her voice into a performance. (Burlesque is all about the body, darling.) Mika’s suggestion: She leave the Michigan in her voice because, well, you can’t hate a girl with a body like this if she has a voice like that. So, behold Ms. von Teese coming out and taking off as an added visual for Mika’s hit song, Big Girls.”

Von Teese, the reigning queen of burlesque, hits NYC for a string of exceedingly rare performances, just in time for the holiday. Expect the doll-like provocateur (who, despite all appearances, turned 40 this fall) to don multiple dazzling, bejeweled outfits. Acting as Von Teese’s bustier (by which we mean “supporting”) are Gotham burlesque scenesters like host Murray Hill and Dirty Martini. Be prepared to sully yourself on the secondary market—tickets are selling fast.
