"Dancers are not props" she understood what so many other artists have forgotten. Especially rappers.

@FelicityGemini

NOW IMAGINE THE TREND OF USING DRAG QUEENS IN MUSIC VIDEOS AS PROPS OH THEY GETTING DESPERATE! KEEP THEM BEAUTIFUL TALENTED LADIES ON STAGE SO I CAN GIVE THEM MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@mevox

FelicityGemini it’s barely a trend, considering how many artists include them in performances and in only a small amount of performances at that. Most drag queens are thankful for the exposure.

@FelicityGemini

@@mevox I would rather expose myself instead of being a prop.

@mevox

FelicityGemini ummm ok? That’s not what I was talking about.

@FelicityGemini

@@mevox then what is?
