Top Of The Pops Online spoke with Megan Burns, now going by Betty Curse, and asked the pop-gother what her parents think of her look.
“My mum used to be concerned when I was younger, like 13, and I was skulking around,” she said. “She was more concerned about other people because I got quite a lot of abuse for it. She wasn’t actually thinking that I looked crap. I mean, now she loves it. She loves me coming home when I’ve been away for a while and she sees what creations I’ve come up with this time. She does get embarrassed when I’m walking down the street with my little top hat on and a little veil and stuff. It’s like ‘Please, Megan, we’re going shopping…’ And she always tries to make me play down my make-up. She hates it when I go out and I’ve got all my purple eyeshadow all over me and she’s like ‘It’s the daytime! Can’t you just leave that for the night?'”
