Fact: Detox is one of the most legendary girls to ever sashay through the workroom on RuPaul’s Drag Race. We have seen the Season 5 and All Stars 2 queen on the Drag Race mainstage, and in the clubs, but in a new video Detox invites us into her new home outside of Chicago, and takes a death drop down memory lane.
At one point in the interview Detox talks about how amazing the cast of All Stars Season 2 was, and shares a behind-the-scenes tidbit about the first time she heard the iconic song, “Read U Wrote U,” which was performed by the top four girls on that season.
“Nobody heard each other’s lyrics, nobody heard each others verses until the night before we went in to do rehearsal,” she reveals. “When we they gave us our iPods with that track [“Read U Wrote U”] on it. we were all sitting around this little table with an umbrella, smoking cigarettes, dying. It wasn’t even finished. But everyone on set was like, ’This is going to be fucking epic,’ and it was.”
No Drag Race fan can disagree!
Watch the new video below where Detox talks about her least favorite part about doing drag, how she bought her house drunk, and why she is now happy “for the first time in a long time.”
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11 airs Thursdays at 9/8c on VH1.
