“Whatcha’ Packin’”: Michelle Visage Sits Down With This Week’s Eliminated Queen

"I went for a softer side."

Bye, sis.

In the latest installment of Whatcha Packin’, tough-lovin’ judge Michelle Visage sits down with Aja, the fifth queen to sashay away from RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.

Brooklyn’s spicy sweetie, who was not quite the belle of the “Pop Art Ball” in this week’s episode, recalls her initial game plan when returning to Drag Race.


“Let me take this opportunity to storm the girls, storm the competition, and storm the television screen, give the children something they want to see,” she says.

Aja also discusses the growth in her drag since she placed 9th in season 9. “There was a lot of makeup critique in my season,” she says, admitting that even she clocked her issues when watching the show.

“Thank you, HD,” Visage quips.

“I went for a softer side,” Aja continues. “I realized that my drag aesthetic is really out there, so why does my face have to be out there? Let me soften the face and let the focus be on my styling.”

Like us, Visage can’t wait to see what’s next for Aja. “Keep killing it on the street out there, girl,” she tells the young queen.

“You’re making it seem like I’m about to go out there and cause some trouble,” Aja replies. “But you right, ’cause I am.”
