Stacy Layne Matthews:
Q: What is it like to be at NYC DragCon?
A: I was excited to do the previous two dragcons in LA and I am excited to be here. I think it is just as successful as LA’s dragcon so I am excited to eat…eat…I mean MEET. Hunny meet.
Q: It’s okay, I just ate and I didn’t realize how hungry I was until I ate.
A: I could go for something right now hunny.
Q: What could you go for?
A: Oh my god, a good ol’ chicken taco sounds good. A good ol’ bowl of soup.
Q: What kind of soup?
A: I don’t know. What kind of soup do you like?
Q: I love a good roasted corn, tomato, tortilla soup.
A: I could eat some pasta. That’s my weakness. That’s why I am so fat…I love a good pasta with alfredo and chicken and mushroom. But, why are we talking about food?
Q: What is it like meeting the fans in NYC?
A: Honestly, it is pretty much the same. There aren’t many differences in the fans.
Q: And you’re doing some panels. What are you looking forward to with them?
A: I am excited to talk about the impact of fans and the fandom on social media. And I think those are some of the things we are going to touch upon at my panel.
Q: You’re a fan favorite with all the memorable quotes and having fans just flock towards you. What is it like to have that attention?
A: I love it. I am a Cancer, I was born in July. So the whole mother, nurturing thing has been in my blood and people always flock to me. It’s not much different than being back at home with my friends. I am a big ol’ mother.
Q: And the AAA Girls did a whole song about you. What was it like being a part of that music video and having that concept thrown your way?
A: I love it. I think Willam is one of the most talented queens on drag race and she is very quick and very talent. She comes up with a lot of interesting concepts and I think people are excited about some of the things the AAA Girls are doing. I am HAPPY to be a part of it.
Q: Anything else coming up for you?
A: I am just getting some tours done. When I leave here I am going to Canada for a tour and then Ohio and then I am planning my tour for March in the U.K. I have never been to the U.K. so I am excited for that. And hopefully working on some music. People have been asking ‘when are you going to come out with some music?’ But here is the thing, before I started doing drag I was a singer. I was doing theatre and I am very critical—I am a whole lot more critical about my voice than I am about my drag. That’s kind of weird to say but when I come out with an album I want it to be right.
Q: What kind of genre would you like to do?
A: I am very into soulful, jazz, R&B type stuff. But these days, some of the kids like the techno stuff hunny. So you make one song and you have to turn it into a techno song. I am going to come out with a techno gospel album, what do you think about that?
