Dita Von Teese dishes with AskMen.com. She admits one of her favorite photo shoots was posing nude with Scarlett Johansson nibbling on my ear. As for whether anything is "off limits," the burly queen said:
"For a show? Well, no religious imagery in my shows... and I make every attempt to keep from being offensive in a political way. But I was once accused of promoting the war by wearing a pink cowgirl costume and riding a bucking, spinning MAC Viva Glam lipstick. The “Lipteese” performance was created to promote the sale of the lipstick, which has made 100 million dollars for people with HIV. But still someone said it was like I was a cowboy, like President Bush, and that I was really riding a bomb. Ridiculous!"
