Dita Von Teese is adding singing to her sexy repertoire.

The burlesque queen revealed at Elton John's AIDS Foundation Oscar Party that she has an album in the works.

"How's the music career going?" Estée Lauder honcho John Dempsey asked Von Teese while watching the awards from the MAC AIDS Fund table.

"I signed a deal with Interscope in Europe," Ms. Von Teese replied. She said one song she hopes to cover is Irving Berlin's "Lazy."

Von Teese and Dempsey's night was a reunion of sorts: She's a former Viva Glam girl for Estée Lauder's M.A.C. Cosmetics. The sales of Viva Glam lipsticks have raised $139 million for the beauty company's M.A.C. AIDS Fund since the program was started 15 years ago.

Current Viva Glam girl Fergie will help launch a new lipstick next month with a visit to L.A.'s Project Angel Food, a citywide program that delivers meals to people living with HIV/AIDS.
