Alaska 5000, 'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 2' winner, spills the truth in new song "The T"
Alaska Thunderfuck 5000 may already be the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' second season, but she's not holding anything back — oh, at all. The drag queen, singer and overall stunner released her new album, Poundcake, and includes one song (with accompanying video) that spills all the tea about All Stars, her relationship with season four winner Sharon Needles and more.
Said song, "The T," features vocals from season six queen Adore Delano, while the video includes All Stars competitors Delano, Coco Montrese, Katya, Ginger Minj (in drag as head judge Michelle Visage) and Tatianna. Also appearing in the video: Katya's web series partner Trixie Mattel, Alaska's mom and, in a blink-or-miss-it cameo, season four disqualified queen Willam in boy drag.
Some of the tea served in the video is lukewarm — Alaska got sober after competing on season five of Drag Race, which is lovely but we know this — but much of it is scalding. (If it's indeed true, of course; in drag, even the hottest tea must be taken with a grain of salt.)
For example, Alaska alleges that her group, the "Triple A Girls" as she, Courtney and Willam were known after participating in an American Apparel campaign together, "went bankrupt morally." She compares their situation to that of DWV, the drag group featuring Willam, all-star Detox and drag queen Vicky Vox that broke up amid some turmoil.
She also confesses to cheating on her ex, Sharon Needles, but wishes Sharon and her new fiancé Chad O'Connell well. "We were good together but we're better apart/ And I learned a lot from that broken heart," she raps. "Sharon and Chad, I'm happy for you."
Alaska then moves on to her other ex-boyfriend, who leaked many details about All Stars 2 on Reddit last October. "If you have Reddit, you probably know about this already," she starts. "This psycho ex got heavy handed/ Tried to Death Star my whole fucking planet/ Talkin' shit, droppin' names/ Screen cappin', playin' games." Alaska gets the last laugh in, though: "He crossed me like the River Styx/ But the sex was good cause I like small dicks."
As for All Stars 2, Alaska offers an apology to the queens eliminated on the show, including Coco and Tatianna. "A hundred thousand dollars, it ain't that much/ To fuck up your mind and all your friends that you trust," she raps.
It's a whole serving of drama coming on the heels of one of the best seasons of reality TV ever. How much of it is to be believed? That's up to the listener; after all, what you see isn't always the truth.
