BRUSSELS, Belgium — When Dutch pop star Alana Dante hit it big with the song “Take Me for A Ride,” she wasn’t kidding.

Website DrunkenStepfather.com has posted a link to a sex video that appears to show Dante performing oral sex in what the webmaster says is an unusual way.

“Seriously, this girl does it weird,” writes the webmaster. “I blame her Belgian roots.”

There is no sound in the video, which also features POV footage of Dante’s mystery lover seducing her from behind while filming the encounter.

Dante was discovered by producer Peter Neefs, and had her first chart-topper with the tune “Take Me for A Ride.” Her next single, “The Life of the Party,” was a huge hit on the Euro disco scene.

Dante records mainly in English, with lyrics such as:

I wanna be your disco-suppa-girl, baby
Wow wow wow disco-suppa-girl
You’re welcome at the boogie night
Let’s boogie-woogie all night long
Disco-suppa night

Dante’s is just the latest in a long string of B- and C-level celebrity sex tape scandals. XBiz last week broke the story of a controversial tape purported to feature Filipina comedienne Ethel Booba masturbating and having sex.

Also last week, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst filed a lawsuit against Fleshbot parent company Gawker Media for distributing a three-minute video featuring the meathead-rocker and his ex-girlfriend in a bedroom romp.

“This video was never intended […] to be shown, marketed, sold or distributed to the public,” read a temporary restraining order application, filed in Los Angeles federal court on March 2, which called for the distribution of the video to be stopped before it is broadcast in its entirety and picked up by secondary distributors.

But Tobe Berkovitz, associate dean of Boston University’s College of Communication, said Durst and other celebrities might have more to gain than to lose when videos of their intimate moments are leaked to the public.

“In today’s youth-celebrity marketplace, part of the criteria of how we judge success is notoriety: that means arrests, confessions about who you were molested by when you were young and porno tapes,” Berkovitz said. “These are credentials for this era of celebrity.”

In other words, at least now you know who Alana Dante is.
