I used to teach dance lessons.
I love men and I like to get their attention.
Live theater to me is much more free than the movies or television.
I was a street dancer.
Generally the whole entertainment business now is bland.
I don’t think I ever really got interested in theater.
I had almost three acres of land in Beverly Hills. And I had a big atrium of chickens because I love that feeling of being in the country and living from the soil.
We’re not thought of in terms of color because we are entertainers. We are there to entertain you not because we are black, white, pink, or green or gay or straight or because we are Catholic or Protestant.
In the ’50s, critics used to say I had a ‘dangerous’ act.
Whenever I walk out on a stage, I’m begging for affection.
Maybe subconsciously I feel I was meant to work hard for a living.
If you’re looking for immediate rewards, you’re only looking for the money.
I was an illegitimate, well, I still am an illegitimate child.
My house was bugged. They couldn’t find any information on me being a subversive because I happen to love America; I just don’t like some of the things the government is doing.
I wouldn’t bother to describe me. I’m Eartha Kitt.
