In a bit of a twist, today’s interview has me discussing the stars, stage, and more with one of the guys of Cherry Sparkle Burlesque. He is one of the few but proud men to accompany the lovely dolls on stage. And in this interviewer’s opinion, he’s one brave soul for doing it. So without further flavor text, let me introduce you to Astrostud.
When you joined Cherry Sparkle Burlesque, you selected the out-of-this-world stage name of Astrostud. What does it mean to you?
The name is a split of my imagination describing an astrology student as well as a good looking guy.
How did you come to join Cherry Sparkle? And how long have you been a member?
I joined last year; Ms. Cherry Sparkle and I go back at least a handful of years.
How would you describe your role in Cherry Sparkle Burlesque and your performance style?
I’d consider myself supportive; my style is unique. I have a lot of practice and exercise to do still.
Do you have a background in dance, theater, or performance art?
With your chiseled physique, one has to wonder if it is a byproduct of genetics, hard work, or both. What do you have to say on the subject? And what sort of workout do you use to keep in shape for Cherry Sparkle?
Haha! Thanks, bud. I think genetics has some to do with it. Well, I do walk a lot and drink water and pure grapefruit juice. Stretching is a big deal.
I have a friendly wager going with Kaitie over who will get the most views with these interviews. With the number of female romance and erotica writers, editors, and publishers on Facebook and my other social networks, I am willing to bet it will be you or one of the other guys. If one of these writers or publishers approaches you online and wants to use you on the cover of a steamy tale of desire, would you be game for it?
More than likely, but I’m gonna ask them there zodiac sign first.
What is your sign? And could you elaborate on your interest in Astrology and what it means to you?
I’m a Virgo Sun. I’ve had a deep interest in astrology for some years now. it helps me talk to people. I’ve asked almost everyone I’ve met since around 2010.
When you’re not practicing or performing with the other guys and dolls, do you engage in other creative pursuits or hobbies?
I like to draw.
What do you like to draw? How would you describe your style?
I like to draw people. They usually turn out looking cartoony. Haha! I couldn’t really put a label on my style. It’s eclectic.
What’s your favorite part of a burlesque show?
The team talking about ideas and then performing them.
What’s your least favorite part of performing?
And last but not least, when and where will you be on stage with Cherry Sparkle again?
Our Halloween show at the Crimson Tiger (on the night of October 11th in Anniston, Alabama.)
Thanks again for sitting down with me to answer a few questions about you and your pursuits. Hopefully, the ladies reading this and a fair number of the gents will come out to see your perform.
