I had the opportunity to sit down with Adore Delano backstage after her show at the TLA in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We chatted social media, ex-boyfriends, her new album, and why she wants to kill Bianca Del Rio.
To me, a "pageant queen" should also be a "comedy queen," and vice versa. Drag queens should be well-rounded enough to rock the runway in a fabulous gown and the next moment make the audience laugh with a skit or a joke.
Budding filmmaker Alex Berry created this YouTube series of docu-shorts about Jerick Hoffner, a.k.a. Jinkx Monsoon, the charming drag artist who won the fifth season of "RuPaul's Drag Race," and the videos are a gorgeous tribute to both Jinkx and to the art of drag performers.
Roxxxy Andrews claimed, to both Jinkx Monsoon and Alaska, that being a funny queen means you're mocking and disrespecting the art of drag. What Roxxxy doesn't realize is that by attacking the season's two funniest queens, she's attacking RuPaul.
This week the queens had to plead their cases for why they should win the title of "America's Next Drag Superstar" in a courtroom acting challenge, with each playing three roles. Along the way, Roxxxy let Jinkx have it! And Jinkx let the courtroom have it! Then Alaska let the world have it!
