Performer Julie Atlas Muz Eats Chocolate Chips at 5 A.M.
If you’ve seen Julie Atlas Muz’s genre-bucking burlesque acts (a couple of which she’s performing throughout the summer at Absinthe), you know she has a thing for food. The blonde dynamo has subjected sausages and ice-cream cones to unspeakable acts. “It’s much better if you use ghetto ice cream,” she says of incorporating the latter. “I prefer old-school frozen popsicles that are stuck to the back of the freezer at the bodegas.” But what does she actually eat? Nothing at all till 4 p.m., it turns out.
