“There isn’t really any standard, you know. It’s a sort of free-for-all. Every one does it differently, and a lot of them are attractive. I used to sing that syncopated stuff in Chicago, and you know you’ve got to accent that with your body. Nobody could stand still and do that, and one day when I was doing it one of the girls cried out: ‘Oh Gilda! What are you doing? Show me how to do that!’ ‘I can’t show you,’ I said. ‘It just came to me. Watch me and then do it, and it’s funny I can’t always do it, either. It’s psychological, I believe.”Gilda Gray
