You gotta hand it to Manila Luzon, she is hustlin harder than any other bitch in the game. Today she gave us a delicious holiday treat, her new music ft. our current reigning Next Drag Superstar Jinkx Monsoon.
If you’ve heard the song (available on iTunes) it’s all about self empowerment and living ever day to it’s fullest. It’s also very special because it features the story of a young Sahara Davenport and we even get a cameo from our dearly departed queen.
I want to talk about the outfits in this video. In true Manila form we have got some GREAT looks, but my personal fave is the Spongebob dress and Jinkx and the starfish with the dreads. That’s a REALLY good look for Jinkx, she should totally wear that when she comes to Vancouver for Battle of the Seasons (Tickets online HERE!)
It’s Manila Luzon overload today at the Homorazzi offices!
In true Manila fashion she has released two new delicious morsels of fun for us. The first is a segment of World of Wonder’s hit web series Ring My Bell. There is also a really amazing caller on this segment, he sounds extremely attractive and super cool!
The second is the long awaited release of her next single, this one titled “Bring It” featuring season 5 winner Jinkx Monsoon. I of course bought it at 2:30 am last night after stumbling home from Liberace Thursday, listened to it and loved it. It’s got a great dance beat, a fun hook and unless I”m mistaken an homage to the dearly departed Sahara Davenport. With a really fun rap by Jinkx Monsoon, how can you go wrong for 99 cents!
If you want to get the single you CLICK HERE and get it from iTunes (she’s also got it on amazon!)
Check out the episode of RING MY BELL below!
Are you in need of a RuPaul’s Drag Race fix until Season 6 premieres? Look no further. A few of your favorite alums from the reality show strutted their stuff for Marco Marco during LA Fashion Week. His designs have been worn by the likes of Nicki Minaj, Fergie and Selena Gomez to name a few.
The show was so fierce Adam Lambert and Lindsay Lohan attended the extravaganza. Alyssa Edwards, Shangela, Yara Sofia, Carmen Carerra, Raja, Manila Luzon, Willam and Detox brought the designer’s latest collection to life. For your added enjoyment, a few shirtless male models were thrown in the mix. Check it out below.
To tell the “trooooooooth” (in Cher’s voice), I’m surprised this didn’t happen sooner. It’s a match made in heaven.
LOGO enlisted some of the more popular alums of RuPaul’s Drag Race to film a music video for Cher’s latest dance hit “Woman’s World.” Naturally, Chad Michaels is front and center since she’s most known for her Cher impersonations. The All-Stars winner channels the dance diva by wearing her infamous attention-grabbing Academy Awards outfit.
Joining Michaels in the clip are Shangela, Manila Luzon, Willam and Alyssa Edwards. Both Shangela and Manila look to Cher’s music videos for inspiration, picking looks from her “If I Could Turn Back Time” and “Believe” clips. Alyssa serves up Mermaids Cher realness, while Willam goes old school, harkening back to the 67-year-old icon’s “Half-Breed” era. Check out the homage visual below.
I have been bad on the Transformation videos but only because I have been so busy planning Vancouver PRIDE and nerding out at San Diego Comic Con (which I will tell you ALL about, probably in a video update because there’s so much) BUT I wanted to share with you the newest World of Wonder TRANSFORMATIONS video featuring my gal pal MANILA LUZON!
Now James has had some legends beat his face on this, he’s had some drag stars and some makeup stars, performance artists and freaks. Honestly I wasn’t sure what Manila was going to do but in my opinion this is the best one. She transforms him into JESSICA RABBIT! Not only is the makeup amazing, but the video is hysterical.
Check out the video below and make sure you look at the rest of them. They are SO good!
I’m surprised RuPaul didn’t think of this sooner. The grand dame of RuPaul’s Drag Race is heading out on the road. Correction. Ru herself isn’t going, but she’s sending her trusty hag Michelle Visage to oversee and host the Battle of the Seasons tour. Tickets go on sale today Friday, July 19. No stalling and be sure to act quickly just in case the show in your city sells out.
“I am honored to be the hostess (a.k.a drag mother) to these talented queens, and we are overjoyed to be working with the legendary Live Nation to bring the art of drag to yet another level: theater,” Michelle Visage said. “RuPaul’s Drag Race has given the art form a voice, and we cannot wait to use it at a theater near you!”
Well she’s done it again. Not to be forgotten about EVER, one of the most popular Drag Race stars Manila Luzon (and friend to the blog) has release her newest music video for a cover of Murray Head’s 80 classic “One Night in Bangkok.”
Oh Tranila, staying ahead of everyone else she has created a 3D music video. Yes you gotta whip out your old blue and red glasses and watch this amazing cover. On another note, Manila is coming to Vancouver for PRIDE this year. I’ll be releasing those details soon!
Enjoy the video below!
In the vein of So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol, Andrew Christian holds auditions of his own. The lucky ones to advance get a ticket to Las Vegas for the MATINÉE Festival over Memorial Day weekend. It’s four days of fun that includes eight parties, 20 DJs and lots of hot boys.
In charge of handing out the coveted tickets are Pandora Boxx, Davey Wavey, Todrick Hall and Andrew Christian himself. Watch them as they drool, manhandle and rate the sexy studs paraded in front of them. Note to future hopefuls: Flirt with Pandora. From the looks of it, she’s your best bet to advance. Also making appearances in the promo video are Drag Race alums Raja and Manila Luzon.
While it’s not as racy as their other videos, it does showcase a lot of jiggling bare booties and salacious behavior, ergo me saving it til Saturday to post the NSFW clip. Enjoy and if you’re in Vegas, have fun and be on the look out for the AC boys.
