I very much understand my own branding. I understand the art that I like to create and where it comes from. I’m a believer in authenticity, which I think is a great help when it comes to comparing yourselves to others because I can’t be Bettsie Bon Bon, because Bettsie Bon Bon already exists. I can only be myself. And I think that takes time to pick up, by the way, that’s not an instant thing, for any new burlesque performers out there. Actually that’s something I think that naturally grows with you. The performer I was at the beginning is certainly not the performer I am eight years on.burlesque performer, Demi Noire, on The Invisible Cabaret Podcast
