Sasha Velour - "So Emotional" @ PLAY Louisville 6/30/17

  • Published on Jul 1, 2017
  • Sasha Velour, winner of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 9, still had plenty of tips left to collect from her previous number, so she continued to collect while doing a bonus lip sync to "So Emotional" by Whitney Houston at PLAY Dance Bar in Louisville, Kentucky 6/30/2017

    Why I love sasha, at Shea's lip syncs she just shakes her butt a bit and walks around collecting money while Sasha puts on a show using the money for her petal thing and you can see her saying thanks. I live Shea too but Sasha is great

    To everyone saying this was boring: I went to this performance that night and she performed her "love song for a vampire" number from her nightgowns event before this but didn't collect tips to focus on the performance. And if you've ever seen that performance, it is anything but boring. So most of us were showing our appreciation for that as well as for her in general. She's extremely talented and genuine and met every single person in line instead of only a few and cutting it off. She's a very deserving and appreciative queen.

  • Kyle Thompson

    There's a reason she never lipsync'd - 2 minutes on TheXvid will show you she was the most talented queen on S9.
    But, she's not a lipsyncer and would have been destroyed on stage like a Shea or others. So, she will never be put in the bottom and in the end given the ability to prepare a lipsync and reveal.
    Ru is about the art and wants drag to be mainstream art...who is gonna take half those queens up there seriously in mainstream art? But Sasha - Sasha can make movies at a villain, Jinx can do Vaudeville, Bob can do the comedy circuit, Violet can do a runway, Bianca can do anything. These are artists who to do drag, no drag queens trying to do art.
    The problem Ru has is none of these artists are going mainstream - they are stuck in the gay community and Logo.
    There was no way Ru was gonna be on VH1, totally mainstream, and not pick Sasha. Drag has to be about more than the lipsync and Ru is showing that.

  • James Ramsier

    Sasha has something many of the other winners don't have, some sort of strange quality that's fascinating. Her expressions while lip synching remind me of Annie Lennox, full of expression, especially in the eyes. For me, it was a tossup between Trinity and Sasha. I'm glad Sasha won.

    • tmmaston
      tmmaston Year ago

      I think Sasha Velour had specific plans on how she was going to use the 100k she won. Keep in mind, tipping is part of a Queens income as well as booking fees, merchandising, royalties and whatnot.

    • victor p
      victor p Year ago

      Jon Bowman when you get 100k you spend it in no time just think about it (especially if you're a drag queen)
      rent (she lives in NY and the rent is not a small charge)
      drag clothes
      things for her shop (haus of velour)
      Due to taxes she doesn't even get 100k

    • Jordan Herrera
      Jordan Herrera Year ago +1

      I think she was trying to get the bills quickly so she could mimic the rose petals during the chorus, plus when she stopped lip syncing you can see her thanking the people she's taking money from

    • Aluna Shepard
      Aluna Shepard Year ago +13

      Jon Bowman Its not a "force of habit" or greedy. That's like saying a waitress shouldn't collect her tips because she gets a base pay of $4 an hour. As was said above: these tips are how drag queens get paid. $100,000 is nothing especially considering that it's closer to $50,000 after taxes and she lives in New York. That leaves her with roughly $4,200 a month for a year and her rent is probably half that at best, not including her other bills, a car if she has one, the money she spends on drag supplies, the money she spends traveling to perform, etc . Moreover, this wasn't a part of her actual performance, they played this song so she could collect her tips since she hadn't done so yet. Lastly, life doesn't stop after winning a jackpot. This is Sasha's job and her passion. She has to keep working, putting her brand out there and YES, making money.

    We all know by now of Sasha's very fortunate up bringing, traveling the world and expensive education but the one thing I wanna ask her is how much she spent on all the clothes and gowns. I like to ask any of the top four. I know some get free stuff to mention the designer or borrow a gown. If u make finals, does the show give u a bonus? I mean think about it,. They made finals and then basically we're expected to show back up with at least 25 grand in gowns etc.. The shows red carpet and all that. They were representing drag race and RuPaul so they definitely should help out. Does anyone know? j may be the only one who gives a shit? lol Won't be the first time.

    • tmmaston
      tmmaston Year ago

      CHIMCHIM It's common courtesy at drag shows to tip the performers. The tips mean that you are entertained and that you have faith in the entertainer's ability as an artist. Not tipping is usually considered rude. That and I think Sasha had specific plans on what the $100,000 prize money was going to be used for. Keep in mind though, the tips are the main part of a Queen's income also take in consideration that they also tour, so, therefore, they may also charge for ticket fees, royalties, merchandising, booking fees etc. It really depends on what their situation is.

      That money doesn't last forever, plus the cash are people showing their appreciation, it would be rude to not accept that, she explained she plans to use the prize money to put back into her community, so the tips are like us getting wages, that's how she makes money on a regular basis, this is her job, despite the win. 👑💜🌹

      Angel Cuebas there's also no reason disrespect what queens like Shangela and I do.. just like not everyone can turn a ballad, not everyone can lipsync and dance full out for at minute mix.. don't generalize cause I have never considered queens that don't dance boring. But I am a dancing diva.

    I like Sasha - and she may have won anyway - but I think Ru crushed Shea's spirit when she brought up the family stuff earlier. I don't know how much "real time" there was between that and the lip syncs but Shea seemed very mentally far away.
