Last week, we had some Real Talk with RedBone about the Erotic Arts.
‘Internationally known, Minnesota grown’ RedBone is one of the biggest names in burlesque! She began traveling the world as one of the Wham Bam Thank You Ma’ams, backing up the infamous Foxy Tann in her quest for world domination in 2005. RedBone has featured at Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend, is the 2019 reigning ‘Princess of Burlesque’ of The Miss Exotic World competition at The Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender in Las Vegas and 2016-2022 made 21st Century Burlesque Magazine Top 50 Most Influential Industry Figures!!
Owner of Cyclone Enterprises, a production company focused on Black, Brown & Queer Fringe Arts Entertainment, she is also co-founder of The Nudie Nubie’s Show — An Amateur Reveal established in 2013 designed to support & elevate the 4 years and under generation of teasers. Since 2014, RedBone has made it a priority to prevent ashiness by glamorously & naturally hydrating the skin of humans across the globe with her product Glam Jam — an all-natural glitter lotion stick aka “Glo-tion For Your Motion”.
Nika and Redbone discussed the importance of being in a flow state when it comes to our eroticism and self expression, and how that can potentially be impacted by monetization. Nika and Redbone ask how we stay authentic, mindful, and build community amidst a capitalist society, while preserving the erotic arts.
Redbone also shared the differentiations between Drag, Burlesque, and Stripping, and gave us a history lesson on the world of Black Burlesque performers.
One key component of burlesque is its inclusivity and connection to the Body Positivity movement. Burlesque is for every body, which Nika and Redbone celebrate on the show, and go for a deep dive on the amazing work of black burlesque performers in the industry.
Redbone also shares special tidbits about confidence, how to overcome jealousy in a healthy way, and so much more!
