Drag stars recreated George Michael’s video
The queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 9 are paying their own tribute to George Michael. Thery introduced their own remake of the singer’s video Too Funky, released in 1992.The season nine queens’ remake features all of this year’s contestants sashaying down the runway just like Linda Evangelista, Tyra Banks and Julie Newmar did in the original. Explaining the decision for the remake, Drag Race queen Peppermint told Billboard, “It’s likely the public would have rejected him had he come out in the ’80s and instead he had them dancing, celebrating, and even singing along to lyrics about the life & love of a queer man.” Peppermint added that she adores the original video and realizes that it is irreplaceable, but watching it she closed her eyes and dreamed about herself as a model on the runway. And now the dream iss coming true.
