She's a weird one. She's not really all that great looking in the traditional sense. In fact she kind of looks and sounds like she could be (in keeping with our theme today) a guy in drag. But damn if she isn't sexy as hell.

I think that may be the first time anyone's tried to meld the classic Master of Ceremonies with the revival Master of Ceremonies. Pretty smart.

She definitely plays up her more masculine abilities in that video - if you watch earlier footage/interviews, it's interesting to sort of see her get more...erm, polished? Dunno. Having seen in up close and in person several time throughout the years, now, she's fairly conventionally pretty. Just really has fun with fucking around it. I didn't really like any of the videos for that album...but I can't wait to see her wedding dress.

Or her behind-the-scenes tweets from the Oscars.

I'll show my age here. It's a reference to an old commercial. "Martha Raye: Actress. Denture wearer."

AFP has a sort of Annie Lennox sensuality to her. I'm attracted!

She has HUGE teeth.
