'RuPaul's Drag Race' All-Star Alaska Drops New Music Video for 'Puppet'
The drag queen gives fan-favorite puppet Lil' Poundcake an origin story.
After eight seasons, the contestants of RuPaul’s Drag Race have learned a thing or two about capitalizing on jaw-dropping moments from the show. Alaska Thunderfuck is the latest queen to utilize a big Drag Race moment.
After winning the latest episode’s challenge dressed as Lil’ Poundcake (a foul-mouthed puppet that she and Lineysha Sparx created in season 5 during a mini-challenge), the All-Stars frontrunner has released a new song and music video for “Puppet.”
The song is the first release from Alaska’s upcoming full-length album Poundcake, out Oct. 14. The music video features the origin story of Lil’ Poundcake: After losing a beauty pageant of sorts, a crazed Gertrude Poundcakenstein goes on a crime spree. Joined by her sidekicks, Jiucy Liu and Chocolate Puddin, she robs a bank and wreaks havoc on Lower Manhattan.
While the video doesn’t feature any other former Drag Race stars, there is a reference to Alaska’s season 5 sister Roxxxy Andrews. The clip also features cameos from adult-film stars Rocco Steele and Boomer Banks.
