    If I could ever ask Sasha a question, I'd love to know if she worked on her own take on the song herself? Such a clever twist on the original lyric, losing none of it's pith, venom and darkness.

  • Don Camillo TuMadre

    this is super creepy. it is EXACTLY the kind of Drag I want to make.
    She also has the name I thought of, Velour.
    Now I feel like a faker...
    Wish I've done my research...

    Adored Sasha throughout her season and i am even more in love with her now. Her drag esthetic is on point, she's smart, gorgeous (in and out of drag) and also has an amazing voice. Her verse of Category Is gave me so many feels then she comes it with this. So in love with this queen and everything she stands for that i physically don't know how to react other than to listen to this repeatedly

    Sasha has got me obsessed with this song now. And after researching a bit into the original song (that i didn’t know beforehand), i found amazing details! She changed the lyrics of the original song, just a tiny bit... but just enough to make this velour, to make this current, draggy, political. I’ve been thinking of different interpretations of this but I’m pretty sure that it’s about the political state that we live in and violence in the world and how everybody’s ignoring the problem. At least that’s how I interpret it, what do you guys think?!
    It’s absolutely fascinating. The way sasha makes everything deeper and makes us reflect on so much stuff. Such a smart and amazing queen.

    A lot of these DR girls are putting out songs seemingly just to get them remixed and create a buzz. They generally rely on a catchy hook to carry poorly crafted lyrics--it's like damn, you couldn't put a bit more thought into writing this thing? It's only three minutes long.
    But, Sasha is different, avant-garde. Her art meshes with my sensibilities. So, I'm probably being overly-critical of some of the other girls because what they do is less interesting to me.
