Britain’s Got Talent 2012: Beatrix Von Bourbon says her mum and dad are her biggest fans
Last night on BGT, we met burlesque dander Beatrix Von Bourbon, whose sexy routine captivated every male in the audience, and on the judging panel…
And while speaking to the Daily Mirror, Beatrix revealed that her biggest fans are her mum and dad.
Beatrix, whose real name is Stephanie Brook, said that her mum even suggests songs that she could use in her routines.
She said, “My family are incredibly supportive and my mum’s often sending me links to YouTube videos of songs she thinks I can use.
“My dad is completely behind me as well. He’s way more career-focused than me but he’s happy so long as I’m happy…
“They have both been to see me perform and I don’t find it weird at all.”
And of concerns that her erotic routine may have caused viewers to be offended, airing as it did on ITV1 before the 9pm watershed, Beatrix said, “Ultimately it’s me performing to a family audience. I have not had any strict restrictions placed on me… it’s my own decision what I do.
“Burlesque can be family entertainment. I’ve performed in front of children. I tone it down and make it less sexual.
“Although lap-dancing came from burlesque, they are completely different.”
When asked if she would ever “go naked” in her act, she said, “I’d never say never but it’s not something I’m interested in now.
“And if I did become interested I’d probably be a bit over the hill for it…”
I suspect Simon, David and Ant and Dec would disagree with you there Beatrix.
