RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 5 premiered this last weekend, with season 10 favorite Miz Cracker adding her distinct flavor (paging Dr. Dill) to the All Stars soup.
Ahead of the season premiere (June 5), the New York City drag queen spoke to Billboard about how she’s coping in quarantine: what she’s listening to, her chain restaurant of choice and the weird thing she’s doing with cereal boxes.
Here’s how Cracker keeps herself from crumbling in self-isolation.
First Things First
“The first thing I do when I wake up is look out the window to make sure the world is still there. If it’s still there and I still have to participate, then I make myself some coffee.”
“My sister and I don’t just text, we also sent letters by post almost three times a week. If you think this is crazy, start a pen pal relationship, and see how happy you are to find letters in your mailbox when you open it. It’s great!”
“When I feel overwhelmed, I eat Chipotle. There’s nothing more centering than all five food groups uniting in my face—veggies, cheese, meat, flour tortilla and, hello, tomatoes are fruit, people.”
“I’m trying to binge Killing Eve but they only come out with one episode per week. Is there any way to fix this? I have needs.”
“I listen to Neko Case on a loop. She grew up in my hometown, so I feel like I’m visiting family whenever I hear her voice. Guess it’s the only way to travel now.”
What’s for Dinner?
“I’m cooking for myself. I recently discovered that you can make salmon with barbecue sauce and fresh garlic on a stovetop, and that has been my obsession lately.”
“I’m crafting myself a tiny town out of cereal boxes I find in the recycling. Maybe you don’t believe me? Check my twitter at @miz_cracker to see my progress.”
What I’ve Learned
“I’ve learned that it’s pretty much impossible for me to get bored. My mind always hunts around and finds something creative for me to do—sewing, crafting, makeup, hair. In other words, when the apocalypse comes, I’ll be ready.”
