The Sun/Bizarre: Toyah’s Backing For The Brits

December 5th, 2021

Pop icon Toyah Willcox has welcomed the Brit Awards going gender neutral.

Toyah, who was nominated for four Brits in the Eighties, thinks the move is a positive step towards inclusivity.

She said: “I think the Brits are ahead of the game and I think it’s an amazing thing to do. We have to protect every individual.

“People must not be pushed into labels, and I think it’s going to empower a whole new generation.”

The It’s A Mystery singer is starring in London’s Proud Embankment Cabaret All Stars show. Despite her 63 years she shows no sign of slowing down.

Toyah said: “My advice to people of all ages is to grab life by the horns and have confidence in yourself.”

We can’t argue with that . . .

The Sun: Rebel Run – Toyah Is Still A Musical Powerhouse

November 25th, 2021

Rebel Run – Toyah Willcox proves she is still a musical powerhouse at 63 in Cabaret All Stars

Toyah Willcox might be 63 years old but she is still a musical powerhouse who doesn’t drop the ball for a second.

The original punk rocker has started her stint at Proud Cabaret as one of their resident celebs for the All Star shows.

She comperes in between the burlesque, circus and magic acts and takes the time to share some of her favourite moments in her career spanning more than 40 decades.

Toyah doesn’t hold anything back, cracking jokes including “These are the feet that ran away from Jimmy Saville” and did her best imitation of Princess Margaret and the Queen mother. The singer also shared that she wrote an early draft of her song I Want To Be Free when she was nine and had jailers telling her lags were singing it behind bars.

When she sang it live, it was hard to tell that it had been decades since she first sang it on record. She was accompanied by the dazzling Katrina Louise who was doing aerial work suspended by chains – her first time back with this prop since giving birth.

Each time Toyah came on stage she had a new getup from a different coloured breast plate to her hair in a new style – the singer certainly got into the spirit of cabaret.
