Update: The World of Wonder site pulled their story last night, and a representative from Capitol Music has called it “completely false and fabricated.” Meanwhile, over on Reddit, a commenter who also claims to be have been there has thoughts on how the queens were still maneuvered to be included in the song.
Original story below.
Katy Perry is currently being dragged by the internet for what can only be described as a questionable SNL performance. For her spot as a musical performer on the show, Perry performed her, uh “sexual liberation anthem” aka cannibalism celebration “Bon Appétit,” which features Atlanta rap trio Migos, and her Nicki Minaj-featuring single “Swish Swish.” (Seeing a pattern here?)
For the “Swish Swish” performance, Perry enlisted a host of drag queens to perform alongside her — word to Miley Cyrus who literally already did that when she released Dead Petz. The performers included lots of New York-based members of the drag community, including Brenda Dharling, Lil Miss Hot Mess, Bryant Dorean, Scarlet Envy, Gisele Alicea, Brita Filter, Yuhua Hamasaki, Pattaya Hart, Kimberly Smallz LaBeija, Alotta McGriddles, Svetlana Stoli, Miss Vita Summers, Jose Gutierez Xtravaganza (a dance from Madonna’s Blonde Ambition tour), The Countess Mascara, RuPaul’s Drag Race, Season 6 contestant Vivacious, and viral star Russell Got Barzz.
