Katy Perry Dragged To Bottom Of The Mariana Trench For Neglecting To Pay Drag Queens

Katy Perry Dragged To Bottom Of The Mariana Trench For Neglecting To Pay Drag Queens vicky vox featureKaty Perry’s new era has been defined more by scandal than chart success. The singer has been catching heat time and time again since launching her “Witness” campaign. Whether she’s accusing Niall Horan of creeping or bringing alleged homophobes Migos on the “Saturday Night Live” stage with drag queens, Katy’s new 2013 Miley Cyrus image can’t stop making the wrong kind of headlines.

Katy is apparently offending the drag community again, and this time, drag queens aren’t defending her. In fact, one is leading the charge against her. In two days of tweets, Vicky Vox has alleged that Katy has been “begging” drag queens to appear in a music video for her free of charge. Vicky took to Twitter to lambast Katy for asking queens to shoot with her “for two days with no pay.”

Drag Queens Are Defending Katy Perry In The Aftermath Of Migos Scandal On Saturday Night Live featureKaty Perry found herself in the midst a controversy this weekend. Anonymous sources told World of Wonder, the empire behind RuPaul and her “Drag Race,” that Katy’s “Saturday Night Live” performances were marred by drama when rap trio Migos refused to perform with the drag queens Katy booked. Migos has been busted for some homophobic attitudes in the past.

That legacy reared its ugly head as one unnamed queen told World of Wonder that she was asked to leave the “SNL” set “because Migos doesn’t feel comfortable with having drag queens there.” The heat only intensified as reports claimed the queens were also barred from entering the show’s season-ending wrap party.

But Scarlett Johansson apparently helped the queens get in, debunking part of the scandal. Now, queens are using social media to hit back at the rumors that Migos had them bumped from the performance of “Bon Appétit.”

“It was incredible performing with Katy Perry,” Brita Filter told Spin. “There was numerous changes throughout the rehearsal process. They chose to have only people of color at the table. There was no drama with Migos.” Other queens doubled down on those claims.
