VH1 announced the news this week, with the California Democrat and first female speaker of the House’s name alongside those of Marc Jacobs, Vanessa Williams, Adam Lambert, Vanessa Hudgens, Kristin Chenoweth, and Tituss Burgess on the guest judges’ lineup. A representative told the Washington Post that Pelosi took the gig to show solidarity with the LGBTQ community—and because she’s a fan.
“All I can say is, you betta werk!” Pelosi tweeted Thursday.
In a sense, this seems like a natural extension of the “yas kween”-ification of Hillary Clinton on Broad City during her presidential campaign. And in another sense, are cameos like this ever actually… fun?
The new season of Drag Race All Stars premieres on VH1 Jan. 25.
