JinkxBacon1

Keeping with the edible themeDrag Race royal and extraordinary singer/actor Jinkx Monsoon has released a video for the second single off The Inevitable Album, "The Bacon Shake." Teaming up with the B-52's Fred Schneider, Ms. Monsoon looks sizzling and delicious as she transforms from nice to naughty in the vaudeville-inspired act. 

Jinkx spoke with Buzzfeed about the video:

“I really wanted the video to have an air of an old German cabaret club, or a naughty little gentleman’s club where this brassy broad is singing her heart out."

“The director, Steven Willis was totally on board with that treatment for this video, and we all unanimously agreed Fred Schneider HAD to be the bartender in this jazz joint..."

“I just hope it makes [the audience] happy and I hope it makes people wanna dance. It’s a catchy tune and I want people to tap their feet to it and sing along.”

Shake along, AFTER THE JUMP...

Feast of Fun Hosts Launching New Web Series 'Cooking With Drag Queens'

Fausto Fernos and Marc Felion, the hosts of Feast of Fun, have launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring their on again/off again web series Cooking with Drag Queens back with a vengeance. Long before RuPaul’s Drag Race, the two podcast hosts made a career out of interviewing and introducing drag queens to their audience.

Photo-mainWhile Drag Race’s has undoubtedly popularized queen culture for a modern audience, the duo wants to give the public a chance to see the queens they’ve come to love in a less competitive setting. Like any cooking show worth its salt, Cooking With Drag Queens promises to be about personality as much as it is about food. Alaska Thunderf--k, Sharon Needles, and Pandora Boxx are among the drag queens to have appeared on on the web series so far, but Fernos and Felion want to expand their reach to give up and coming queens a chance to make a name for themselves.

Their Kickstarting goal of $12,000 will go towards hiring a full production crew, bringing the queens in town, and giving them all the food to work with. The team is still actively looking for drag testimonials from any and all queens interested in becoming a part of the project.

Adore Delano Wants To 'Party' - Video

Adore1

Of all of this season’s RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants, runner-up Adore Delano seems to have had the most calculated, post-Race media blitz planned out. In addition to hitting the Pride circuit with fellow RPDR runner-up Courtney Act and winner Bianca Del Rio, Delano (Danny Noriega) has continued to drop relatively successful singles charting on both Billboard’s Dance/Electronic album and the Billboard 200. Delano’s channeling her inner Alice In Wonderland in the video for her latest single "Party." Spilling tea, sexy clowns, and spray-painted dresses--classic Adore.

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 11.06.30 PM

Behold, the triumphant return of Drag Race all-star Tammie “with an ‘i-e’” Brown!

It’s been over five years since the quirky queen got into her famed clash with RuPaul and gave us the legendary quote, “I don't see you walking children in nature.”

The phrase lives on — just a month ago, Drag Race season 5 runner up Alaska paid homage with her YouTube ode to Laganja Estranja. Now Ms. Brown herself has released "Walking Children in Nature," the second song from her forthcoming sophomore album. The music video is unmistakably Tammie: Nancy Sinatra meets Tim and Eric, with a modest dash of Janice.

If you’re into exquisite green-screens and “Rocky Horror” lasers, Tammie just may be the queen for you. The song features Michael Catti, and you can find the music video

RuPaul Throws Shade at LOGO Over 'Tranny' Debate: 'I'm Still Paying the F--kin' Light Bill Over There'

RuPaul reignited debate over use of the word "tranny" on Friday in an interview with Marc Maron in which he blasted activists coming at him for using it.

RupaulSaid Ru in the interview:

...it is not the transsexual community. These are fringe people who are looking for story lines to strengthen their identity as victims. That is what we’re dealing with. It’s not the trans community, because most people who are trans have been through hell and high water and they know -- they've looked behind the curtain at Oz and went, 'Oh, this is all a f**king joke. But, some people haven't... You know, if your idea of happiness has to do with someone else changing what they say, what they do, you are in for a f**king hard-ass road.

Shortly thereafter, Buzzfeed published a statement from a spokesman at LOGO, the network which airs RuPaul's Drag Race, distancing the network from the remarks:

“These comments did not come from Logo. We are committed to supporting the entire LGBT community and will not feature any anti-trans rhetoric on our shows.”

RuPaul took to Twitter the following day and made it clear that Drag Race is the network's bread and butter and can't afford to distance itself from him. He also had a few more things to say on the topic:

Forget an outside threat, the “Gay Movement” will eat itself from the inside out...Orwell’s book “Animal Farm”: The pigs didn’t really want a revolution, they just wanted to BE ‘Farmer John’...The absurdity! It’s as if Jay Z got offended by Kanye using the word “Nigga”...It’s not the word itself, but the intention behind the word...

...Trust! @LogoTV hasn’t “distanced” itself from me, not while I’m still payin’ the f%kin’ light bill over there...I’ve been a “tranny” for 32 years. The word “tranny” has never just meant transsexual. #TransvestiteHerstoryLesson...I’m more “offended/hurt” by the misuse of the word “community”...Pop will eat itself... So will the "Gay Movement"
