So reluctant to admit it

EducatingDita.jpg

There is no improving on the tag-line "Educating Dita" or Greg Sorensen's eerie take on her hyper-real pin-up image... The Telegraph interviews the extraordinary Dita Von Teese on Marilyn Manson, biography and - critically - the prospect of finding new love.

Recently, Von Teese has allowed herself to be set up on several blind dates by friends. 'I figure I have a better chance being introduced to somebody through a friend than I do meeting someone in a bar or on the internet,' she says. And though she 'isn't ready for another relationship yet', she is hopeful.

Oh Dita, do not rule out the internets. We have such sights to show you.

My sympathies are naturally with Ms. von Teese, but there appears to be a bit of cognitive dissonance going on upstairs for her.

The Über-girly-girl pinup met the shock rocker with Nazi regalia, pickled fetus and preserved baboon wang, and thought she could turn it all around?

Sounds pretty clear that she picked a "project" and the project didn't want his lifestyle improved, however much he may need it.

In fairness, I should admit I am pretty much relying on the project angle to attract her attention. I am definitely a fixer-upper.

I found it interesting that her hair is naturally blonde. So she could pass for her replacement (Evan Rachel Wood) if she stayed away from the hair dye for a while.

There's the makings of a real-life Kill Bill in there, somewhere.

This does tend to suggest Manson's thing is not Betty Boop pin-ups but turning blondes into Betty Boop pin-ups...

Damsel in distress syndrome.

See? She is perfect.

I think you need to update us all on the status of your Paris Hilton crush, especially in light of her probation violation and 45-day visit to the hoosegow.

The whole affair is a tragedy. Beautiful heiresses should clearly not be expected to abide by the same law as the lumpen-masses.
