In our eyes Manila was hands down winner of her season on RuPaul’s Drag Race/ Drama Central! Manila’s an exotic little minx! So, we want to know how Manila feels about hunky bearded men. As America’s Next to Next Drag Superstar of season 3 of RuPaul’s Drag Race and drag professor on Drag U, She has released to the world her follow up single to her first hit “HOT COUTURE,” ……drum roll…. “Best XXXcessory”.
New York, NY – Already dressed in “Hot Couture,” Manila Luzon is accessorizing her list of achievements with a brand new single. In anticipation for her return to reality television on LOGO’s RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race, Manila has teamed with Matt Katz-Bohen, Blondie tour keyboardist and songwriter, for her follow-up, “Best XXXcessory.” Originally written for the New Wave band’s ninth studio album, Panic of Girls, Blondie’s Debbie Harry turned down the song, but upon hearing the demo, Manila knew with rewrites of the lyrics and the addition of an addicting hook, the tune would be a dragnificent match with her tongue-in-cheek style. This punky hit now has a music video as sparkly as the necklaces, bracelets, and rings Manila sings about. Manila references looks of pop culture, including famous accessory-hungry icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and even Jem! And not to take the political topic of gay marriage too seriously, there may even be a proposal to Manila’s long-time girlfriend and RuPaul alum, Sahara Davenport.
Manila Luzon garnered America’s attention as first runner-up on season three of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Notorious for her comedic timing, outrageous costumes, and big hair, Miss Luzon’s popularity led to her being cast as a mentor onRuPaul’s Drag U. On October 22, 2012, she will return to compete with former contestants in RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race. As a result of her success, Luzon has appeared in commercials for Orbitz, Gilead, and her ownAbsolut Vodka promotion. Manila will soon be featured as a coach in an upcoming episode of MTV’s hit docu-seriesMade. She is a noted representative for companies such asCole Haan, DKNY, GLAAD, Instinct Magazine, and AIDS Service Center NYC.
