Published 18/06/2011 | 05:00

In relation to the feature 'The night I became a burlesque queen' (Irish Independent, June 15), I wish to clarify that I am not, nor ever will be, "totally naked" on stage. Burlesque is a widely misunderstood art, and a title frequently abused by other 'performers'. No burlesque performance ever involves total nudity.
