Janet Jackson impressed by drag queensApril 23rd, 2008 - 6:44 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Apr 23 (ANI): American singer Janet Jackson has revealed that the legion of drag queens, who attempt to mimic her act, have impressed her so much that she would like to be one.
Jackson admitted that whenever she hears of drag stars imitating her, she always checks them out, and she has found that some of them are pretty amazing.
“One of them was at the Baton (Show Lounge) in Chicago. This was a few years ago. And she did a wonderful job. (There was) another… in Atlanta at the Jungle. She did a wonderful job as well, Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“They really study you… (and) they pour it on more, which I absolutely love. They give more than I do and I love that. The first time I went to the Baton in Chicago and saw this show, I was with some of my dancers.
“Afterward, I said to my dancers, ‘We’ve gotta pull (it) up because these bitches are hitting it. They’re giving so much femininity and we look like boys onstage’, she added.
The singer revealed to Eonline.com that sometimes the drag queens’ Janet routines make it into her live shows.
“We were trying our hardest to ooze with that feminine touch, she said.
The singer also said that she would love to ‘drag it up’ for a magazine photo shoot.
“It would be really fun to do a whole editorial spread in a magazine with me as a drag queen, completely from head to toe. I would love to do that,” she stated. (ANI)
