It is nearly every testosterone-driven
teenage male's wish: a well-endowed, scantily clad woman
in a cage. During the Licensed
to Ill world tour, that wish along with many others
was granted to the Beastie Boys.
Often referred to simply as "the
woman in the cage," Eloise became famous in her own
right, making appearances with the band while on tour in
California, as well as during the infamous 1987 Joan Rivers Show
performance. On that day, viewers got an up-close look at
Eloise as she danced to "Time to Get Ill."
Eloise's past and present are both
kind of cloudy, although Angus Batey, in his book Rhyming
and Stealing: A History of the Beastie Boys, states that
"a go-go dancer, Eloise, appeared
on stage with the group, in various states of undress, usually
in a cage."
