If you're disappointed you won't get to see the Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac at JazzFest 2019 in New Orleans, worry not, 10%ers! They've got something even better...
A burlesque act who shaves her pits while you watch! FUN!
It’s safe to say that Boyfriend, New Orleans’ favorite burlesque rapper, was the first performer to ever shave her arm pits during a concert on the Gentilly stage at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Maybe any stage for that matter.
She had help. As Boyfriend sang a sultry ballad that asked the question “Why don’t you love me,” two of her dancers applied foam and razors to her upstretched underarms.
Why "don't" we "love" you? Probably because you're making us watch while you shave your pits.
Such behavior is not especially unusual for Boyfriend, who’s notorious for satirizing beauty and fashion obsessions in her over-the-top, arty performances.
In charismatic theatrical diva terms, Boyfriend is like Katy Perry’s strange sister, the one with the big glasses, who wears curlers and her brassiere in public and says whatever crosses her mind, even if it makes people, particularly men, wince.
Take that, men! Watching her shave her pits is so much more fun than Fleetwood Mac and the Rolling Stones! Best JazzFest ever!
