Sting and David Bowie to open burlesque club....

Two rock legends - David Bowie and Sting - might team up to open a burlesque club in Manhattan, a British newspaper reported today.

Reps for the rockers confirmed they are in talks with nightclub owner Ivan Kane, whose venues include the burlesque Forty Deuce clubs in Hollywood and Las Vegas, the Daily Mail said. Kane has approached Bowie and Sting to collaborate on opening a Forty Deuce in Manhattan, although Chelsea - not Times Square - reportedly is the preferred location.

Kane told the Daily Mail that his Forty Deuce clubs "push the envelope in terms of sexuality, decadence and voyeurism."

The clubs riff on the campy burlesque scene of the 1920s and '30s and feature strippers but no nudity. As one Vegas entertainment Web site put it, Forty Deuce offers "the tease without the sleaze."
