YouTube Delight: Joey Heatherton Kicks and Twirls
I can stake a tiny little claim to pop culture history, which is that when John Waters was looking for '60s singer-dancer-actress Joey Heatherton to put in his movie Cry-Baby in 1990, I was able to provide him with her contact information. I know people in high places! And looking at this YouTube clip of Joey wowing 'em on "I've Got Your Number," complete with Michael Bennett choreography, I'm even prouder to know Joey, whom I'd wrongly pegged as a mere sexpot, a bosomy love machine. She's actually a petite powerhouse with a killer high kick to go with her frosted hair and flasher husband. I'm glad YouTube's got her number.
