i am SO SICK of people (including other girls) putting girls down for everything they do. y’all won’t let us win. you’ll make fun of a girl who like starbucks and victoria’s secret leggings for being too basic, make fun of an athletic or muscular girl by saying she “looks like a man”, call any girl who likes nirvana or classic rock a poseur but girls who like rap music ‘thots’, and harass “art hoe” type girls for liking popular, talented artists or yellow fucking backpacks. i swear to god, anything a girl likes becomes a meme. young girls are a joke and it’s time we get treated with some fucking respect.
time and time again have i heard “why don’t you just be original and do things you actually enjoy?” like what??? the fuck??? is this??? no girl can EVER enjoy anything that anyone else has ever enjoyed, EVER. absolutely not. and honestly who gives a shit if she developed her interests based on somebody else’s? that’s how we learn and grow and discover ourselves. i guarantee you that you wouldn’t enjoy shitting in the toilet unless you saw the rest of the world do it first.
it’s not funny, it’s pure misogyny. and it has to stop.
How cute is this, y’all? And what a spiffy representation of drag too. This really is a great range of queens in NYC. Any night of the week, you can find a show to go to somewhere in Brooklyn or Manhattan that has the kind of drag you like, and I’m glad this season has four very specific kinds of New York queens on the show. I will say that Peppermint, though she is a legend, also fits the bill for what you’d think of as a “traditional” kind of drag queen. The style, the song choices, the banter with the audience – she’s very standard, but a high standard.
The actual song though….alright…so….
Full Disclosure: You already know I listened to this song once and that’s exactly the number of times I care to hear it in my life. Musically, it’s just not interesting in the least, and the lyrics are pretty good, but not good enough for me to be like “oo, lemme go put on ‘CLAT’ and see if I can decipher some further meaning.”
That out of the way, it’s so much better than I expected because the bar is so low for Drag Race singles I can tolerate. So far, the only one I like enough to keep in my music library is Shangela “Werqin’ Girl” (because the beat knocks) and dassit. There is a lot of promise in this little single though.
First of all, Peppermint is so beautiful and I think that never really gets talked about because 1) she’s super nice and 2) she can be a little unpolished. She looks great in this and hearing her sing at the end is giving me shades of RuPaul way back in the day. I think Peppermint could have a decent recording career, comparatively speaking anyway.
Also, Sasha impressed me! There’s a little bit of Nicki theatrics in that little bald queen and I’m here for it.
Aja gave me what I expected, and that was fine, but…
Alexis just isn’t the kind of girl who needs to be rapping on a track. It’s just not her wheelhouse. Odd that they didn’t let her sing at the end like Peppermint, but I wouldn’t have wanted to hear a theater voice at the end of a club track either.
Cute project from the New York queens this year. This wouldn’t have worked on any other season and I’m glad these girls like each other enough to come up with something like this.
You told me morality didn’t mean much to you anymore/ Guess that’s why your best friend lives in a cheating encore/ While her fiancé prays “dear god let me live to get back to her” serving across seas/ She’s moaning “dear god don’t let this end” between some dorm sheets
“Just whatever makes someone happy, you know?”/ Doubt that’s what your mom said when your dad stopped coming home/ Didn’t cheating ruin your young life?/ I just don’t get how with you that sits right
