Dita Von Teese is getting plenty of play, thank you very much!
Despite recently telling a British tabloid that she went celibate for awhile after splitting from her ex-husband, shock-rocker Marilyn Manson, Von Teese now admits she was only joking.
"All my friends [saw that] and were like, What?" the burlesque beauty told us last night at the Beverly Hills launch party for Amanda Eliasch's new book, Cloak & Dagger Butterfly. "I just thought it was funny to say at the time."
She added with a laugh, "I'm pretty sure it's safe for you to report that I've had sex by now."
Von Teese says she hasn't found someone special to settle down with just yet, so until then...
"I'm just really enjoying being single, and having fun, global affairs," she said. "I'm enjoying being free, and enjoying different men...I'm enjoying being in the moment and enjoying everyone for what they have to offer."
When Von Teese isn't busy with her bevy of men or flying back to Paris for another run of shows at the Crazy Horse nightclub, she's finding time to put together her second book: "It's a step-by-step guide to beauty," she said, "for girls who don't want to look like every other girl."
