Here’s a fun little gif from the Lady Gaga commercial for Shiseido shot by Ellen Von Unwerth – watch the full video here!
You did it! Thank you for nominating me for The Meme Award at this year’s Golden Pasties Awards, part of the New York Burlesque Festival. Now it’s time to CAST YOUR VOTE! Can I Haz a Golden Pastie, PWEASE? VOTE NOW!
I’ve already been in some memes including the international #BEYOURSELF meme inspired by Lady Gaga’s commercial for Shisheido- shot by the talented Ellen Von Unwerth – you can see me receiving a huge hug from Mother Monster herself right here!
The New York Burlesque Festival Golden Pasties categories are live and ready to accept your nominations! Won’t you please nominate Francine “The Lucid Dream”?
Please vote for your favorite performers in each category but I think the “HUH?” award would be appropriate for producing & performing the weirdness in The Pink Room: David Lynch Burlesque; I’m always a BACKSTAGE BUSY BEE when I am producing, performing, hosting and singing!; Let’s face it, my shit is ON FLEEK both on and off stage; I’m a CHAMELEON when I transform into Granny Fluffer, Frankie Fluffer, Agent Scully or Bobby Peru; ELEGANZA? Eh, maybe!; But when it comes down to it this MEME category has me written all over it – I’ve already been a part of the meme #BEYOURSELF that took off internationally when my face was seen in the recent Lady Gaga/Shiseido commercial!
Please nominate now, repost, encourage your boyfriend, your lovers, your cats to vote for me – just only vote once per device! THANKS!
Catch Francine in this commercial directed by Ellen Von Unwerth! Lady Gaga for Shiseido: “Be yourself. That’s what makes you beautiful.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Have you been keeping up with The Knick on Cinemax? If you have you may have seen a glimpse of Francine as “Evelyn” in episode five, “They Capture the Heat”. Seen here with Clarence Dally, played by Allen Warnock, Francine’s character assists in selling an X-ray photographic apparatus to the Knickerbocker Hospital all while making eyes at Thack & Barrow (played by Clive Owen & Jeremy Bobb). This Steven Soderbergh series is a bloody good stab at 1900 medicine but the focus is on the realities of life at the time for women and minorities.
