Manila Luzon Featuring Latrice Royale - Robbed

15 July Critic Jonni 0 Comments


ROBBED! Oh yes she was, Manila Luzon was absolutely amazing on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 4 and totally deserved the crown but one slip up meant she ended up in the bottom two and was sent home and I've never been more disappointed - apart from when Shangela didn't make it into the top two during All Stars 3 (which totally explains the ending of this music video)! I adore this song when I first heard it back when Manila Luzon's album Rules! was released. Yet, this music video has just made me love the song, even more, drag queens as animated characters are literally the best thing ever - I loved Netflix's Super Drags and World Of Wonder's DragTots... We need a long-running animated drag queen TV series - someone commission it already!

What's not to like about this? Both Manila Luzon and Latrice Royale are drag queen extraordinaires and how they haven't won RuPaul's Drag Race, yet, I'll never know - I'd so throw in Shangela and Raven into this mix too as they also deserve to win (and Jujubee, although she's currently in the running to win All Stars 5). There is literally so much detail in every single scene that every time I watch this I see something new. Manila Luzon and Latrice Royale look total-fire, and I am living for their looks throughout, and Shangela looks like a star at the end of the video too. I love how Naomi Smalls is the hostage and she's even being gagged with the lipstick that sent home Manila Luzon. I love the small details too such as the car's pedals saying "Shantay" and "Sashay", the smoke bombs saying "All T" and "Shade", the news is called "News 96" instead of "Club 96". It's so amazing and I hope we get to see this drag queen art animation style again, maybe Manila Luzon will do a continued storyline in a new music video? - Oh, how we can only hope. Thank you, Chaos Emporium Inc, for creating this awesome music video!
