Perri Lister— the original video vixen (a tribute by me)

Before Tawny Kitaen ever dreamed of humping and doing cartwheels on the hood of a car in the infamous Whitesnake video, there was the origninal video vixen. Her name is Perri Lister.

Perri Lister is a dancer, choreographer, singer, former model, and was the lady love and muse to Billy Idol for most of the 1980s.

She got her start as a member of the Hot Gossip dance troupe on the Kenny Everett Show in the late 1970s (seriously, spend some time looking up their videos on Youtube, you will not be disappointed). She also hung around the punk and Blitz scenes in London, and began dating Billy Idol in 1980.

That same year she performed all over the world as a member of Visage with Steve Strange.

In 1982, she choreographed and appeared topless in the Duran Duran video “The Chauffeur.”

Her choreography and appearances in the classic Billy Idol videos like “Eyes Without a Face” (she also provided the female vocals in that song), “White Wedding” (she plays the bride) and “Hot in the City” (she is nailed to a cross) helped him become a huge star in the US.

She was also supposed to choreograph the Jackson’s “Torture” video but was replaced by Jackie Jackson’s girlfriend Paula Abdul.

Basically Perri Lister is awesome and she should get more credit for her awesome choreography. Like girls slapping their own asses in the “Eyes Without a Face” video:
