‘Drag Race’ star slays with new video for ‘This Is My Hair’

Alaska Thunderfuck, the drag queen best known from season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, has released her debut album ANUS today. The record already shot to No. 2 on the iTunes dance charts

But it’s the accompanying videos for Thunderfuck’s top tracks that set this drag star apart from the pack. A series of music videos were released on YouTube in advance of the ANUS release, starting with “Your Makeup Is Terrible” in June 2014 and “Nails” in December. Last night, the trifecta was completed with the release of the latest masterpiece, “This Is My Hair.” 

Basically, the videos put together are a lesson in the rules of drag: watch your makeup, never tell a queen you can tell her hair is a wig, and “If you’re not wearing nails, you’re not doing drag.”

Yes, hunty. For maximum educational impact, we’ve presented all three videos in the series starting with the new release.
