Now, you’re identified for having an opinion or two about Drag Race. I wished to know what you’re general ideas had been on All-Winners All Stars? Did you just like the no critiques/no eliminations format?
AT5000: Oh, so you’ve got heard our podcast [laughs]. Really, I cherished it. I imply, it was watching these nice artists get to be nice artists. And it wasn’t targeted on drama, or battle, or preventing, or cliques, or any of that stuff. That each one took a again seat to only fucking good drag queens doing good drag. So I hope that they noticed what a hit this season was. And I hope that they form of preserve it going that manner, as a result of I used to be actually, actually impressed by it. I used to be actually fucking glad I wasn’t there. As a result of they’re too good at drag — everybody’s too good at drag now. Oh, my god.
That was truly my subsequent query. You had been very open about not getting the decision to be on this season. So would you be open to doing a future season? And who would you be most excited and or terrified to compete with?
AT5000: Nicely, I would be most excited and most terrified to compete with Bob the Drag Queen. As a result of I actually love working with Bob; like, we have executed a number of issues collectively, and we simply have a terrific chemistry and a terrific rapport. So immediately, we might be in an alliance. Bob, I am already calling on you for an alliance when you’re studying this. But in addition I’d be going into it with no intention of profitable. I simply need Bob to win. So I’ll assist Bob any manner I can.
Is there any a part of you that is scared to return? Since you’ve been away from the franchise at this level for a while, and likewise, you already know, that generally a number of the folks within the fandom will be very harsh on the queens. Is that one thing that may maintain you again from returning to the present?
AT5000: No, I imply, all that’s actually simply, like, noise. The speaking shit concerning the queens on this present has gone into such overdrive. That’s actually stunning and mortifying. However it’s additionally on the finish of the day simply noise. RuPaul’s Drag Race began the literal yr I began doing drag; like, my path on that present has been its personal future, and it has been meant to be each time it is occurred. So if it ever occurred once more — which I do not even assume it ever will — however, if I obtained known as to go do RuPaul’s Drag Race once more, after all, I’ll take the chance, and I am going to take advantage of it as a result of it is my fucking calling and my future on this planet. And I do not care what anybody has to say about it. I do not!
