Now, you’re identified for having an opinion or two about Drag Race. I needed 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 have heard our podcast [laughs]. Really, I beloved it. I imply, it was watching these nice artists get to be nice artists. And it wasn’t centered on drama, or battle, or combating, 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 successful this season was. And I hope that they type of maintain it going that approach, 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 really 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 might 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 carried out just a few 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 in the event you’re studying this. But additionally I might be going into it with no intention of successful. I simply need Bob to win. So I’ll assist Bob any approach 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 understand, that typically a number of the individuals 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 surprising 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 suppose 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!
