Taste Test: Diesel Darling

4 July 2012 | 4:55 pm | Staff Writer

The burlesque star takes us inside her Bloody Thursdays.

What I'm listening to right now is…?
New York Dolls and Alice Cooper (over and over and OVER again... rehearsals for Glam Rock Burlesque), sprinkled with Prince's discography as I brainstorm for an upcoming Celebrity Skin Production.

What I'm watching right now is…?
Showreels... YouTube videos (research?!) and unashamedly - True Blood. A friend and I have a red wine night in honour of True Blood - Bloody Thursdays. 

What I'm reading right now is…?
A Visit From The Goon Squad.

The best film of all-time is clearly…?
Ergh, no one is gunna respect my 'edge' after this: The Princess Bride.

The one song I wish I'd written is…?
Pretty much anything Ani Difranco, old faves die hard. 

What excites you about Burlesque?
Creating, owning and celebrating who I am and what I want to be and getting paid (most of the time) to do some of the silliest things I could imagine! 

Diesel Darling will perform at Glam Rock Burlesque, Sunday 8 July at The Standard, Sydney.
