Awww Famous Strippers, or has beens :)
Celebrities that were once Strippers
Stripping: we’ll call it the second oldest profession known to man. It’s apparently a great way to start a career, because check out these famous people who used to be strippers.
1. Anna Nicole Smith
No shocker here, but Anna used to work the stage in a Texas strip club called, Gigi’s. Woo woo!
2. Courtney Love
Get your singles out, fellas, because Courtney Love is about to take the main stage. Holla! Love reportedly worked as a stripper in Japan, Taiwan, and Alaska3.
It was discovered that the G.I. Joe star used to shake his money maker when someone (thankfully) posted the AWESOME VIDEO on US Weekly’s website. His stage name: “Chan Crawford” Nice, dude.
4. Lady Gaga
Before she was ripping up the pop charts, she was a lady of the night ripping up the strip clubs. She told UK’s News of the World: “I was working in strip clubs when I was 18. Girls from my background weren’t meant to turn into someone like me. I come from a wealthy Italian family, went to a good school. You’re meant to live with Mom and Dad until they die.”
5. Amber Rose
Amber Rose already has a stripper name so it’s hard not imaging Kanye West’s main squeeze twirling around a stripper pole. Though back then, she only went by “Rose” on the stage
6. Jenna Jameson
Jenna Jameson’s career went from stripping to porn to acting in somewhat mainstream movies, albeit straight-to-video zombie flicks. But still…7. Nadya “Octomom” Suleman
The Octomom, who’s been criticized, among other things, for emulating Angelina Jolie, admitted to stripping “just for one night”. Her stage name: “Angelina”.
8. Carmen Electra
Before the Baywatch beauty washed up on the Los Angeles County beaches, she used what God gave her to make it rain singles. She recently even released her own signature brand stripper pole. Classy.
9. Diablo Cody
It’s no secret that the Juno scribe was once a Minneapolis strip club dancer. Hell, she still goes by her stage name. And she’s not in the least bit ashamed. She told Esquire: “I’ve incorporated the pasties into my business wardrobe.”
10. Tila Tequlia
She reportedly told King-Mag.com: “When I was 18 and still in high school, I was a stripper for a while, because I was trying to save up money to move to Hollywood to become this bisexual Hollywood starlet that I am today.” She also claimed to be pregnant and a billionaire. So draw your own conclusions.
