If you missed out on my definition of the new and improved column series for RuPaul’s Drag Race, let me explain. “RAW” is defined as “unnaturally or painfully exposed, as flesh, by removal of the skin or natural integument.” This is how I see where drag has evolved and by adding the letter Q for queens, or queers, it’s become an expression that I associate with anything and everything to RuPaul’s Drag Race. So, there you go! After receiving this press release from the agent that manages Manila Luzon, I thought I’d share this, because it’s such a great moment for this drag superstar runner-up.
RuPaul’s Drag Race breakout star Manila Luzon debuts new single “Hot Couture” November 8, 2011 Rhinestone, feathers, and a whole lot of hair are what took New York City drag starlet, Manila Luzon straight to the top on groundbreaking LOGO reality series RuPaul’s Drag Race (Season 3). Luzon’s performance was both campy and crafty enough for the queen to strut her stuff all of the way to the finale of the series (capturing the runner-up spot). Since then, Luzon has not let up on the competition in regards to face or fashion. To prove that she is still in the race, Manila has teamed up with Grammy Award-winning producers Brian Kierulf and Joshua Schwartz of KNS ProductionsHot Couture”. The pop/dance song is best described as an upbeat ode to fashion, dance, and drag. In the track, Luzon takes you on a night on the town with her from start to finish while donned in nothing but couture (and it’s hot). It’s sure to be an A-List adventure, all in three and a half minutes. The song is loads of fun and captures the easy-going spirit of Luzon perfectly. “Hot Couture”’s catchy hook definitely has “the crack” and will leave everyone within an ear span hooked. The dance track has a beat that will have gays, straights, and everyone in between dancing and feeling hot.
