DON'T BE A DRAG

Lady Gaga Is Living For Drag Race Fave Sharon Needles


Sharon Needles isn’t just a shoo-in for the all-stars edition of RuPaul’s Drag Race, she’s made a fan of Mother Monster herself. Lady Gaga recently tweeted a compliment about Needles, a.k.a. Pittsburgh native Aaron Coady, on her official Twitter feed:

“Sharon Needles looks FABULOUS 2night on drag race. Very Born This Way outfit/fame monster wig. Any rentals for my tour.”

Needles response was typically sardonic: “Lady Who?” She don’t care. “Don’t be a drag, just be a drag queen. Or don’t. It’s the worst job on the planet.”

      Sharon Needles is most definitely NOT from LA like that irritating Willam. Girl is from Pittsburg if I recall correctly. Remember Sharon hasn’t (insert whiny voice here) “been on Sex and the City”.

      Mark is right. Sharon is from Iowa and lives in Pittsburgh. Also, she did offer to let Lady Gaga borrow her outfit, if she could find it!

      I AM from Iowa and reside in Pittsburgh, PA and Gaga can borrow anything from my closet as long as she returns the favor!

      This is wrong. Sharon Needles was absolutley flettered by Gagas praise.

      So happy for Sharon … o the irony that she should get love from phi phi’s snatch game persona.

      Sharon Needles is so quick-witted and cool; I just adore her. Congrats to her on getting Lady Gaga’s stamp of approval. Pee Pee O’Hara, on the other hand, is simply mean-spirited and pathetic; I can’t wait until she gets booted off Drag Race. Even though I don’t think they’ll bring Willam back to the show, it would be poetic justice if they brought him back, and he out-lipsynched Pee Pee.

      @Sozo: You know Phi Phi did. She probably was nashing and grinding her teeth so hard she ground her snaggle tooth down to a chicklet.

      She’s not bitter that’s her personality. Sharon’s made it clear that she pulls out the Gaga when she has bills to pay. Otherwise she does her own characters. She did luck out that zombie is 2012 popular via Gaga and Walking Dead.

      What a surprise. Gaga bothers to tweet a pop culture person and it’s all about her anyway. I’m gonna bet Sharon predates Gaga in that look. eyeroll.

      It’s painfully obvious she’s the best on the show.

      Sharon Needles ad Pandora Boxx are my fave 2 from all seasons.

      I hope Sharon wins.

      I don’t know why (I hate her name)…. but I actually like her too. Despite trying hard not to.

      I don’t know if she will win. I think that Latrice, Sharon, or Chad could win this one. As far as all stars go… Ongina would have to be on the list too.
