This sign. What does it mean? So enigmatic. It’s just a casual screen shot, not a plot point in the episode, but I’ve thought about it every day since it aired. No cats selling the facts. Is that a drug reference? Does it mean “no proselytizing on the street corner”? Does it literally mean “no cats?” Do you know? Have you ever seen one of these before? SOMEBODY TELL ME! Oh, and be sure to watch new episodes Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce every Wednesday at 11PM on Fuse. It’s absolutely brilliant.

Tonight, of course, is the premiere of Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce, on FUSE at 11 Eastern (10 Central). I’ve seen it and, trust me, IT’S BANANAS. I know that Miley’s (Bowel) Movement is on MTV at the same time, but I seriously suggest you DVR that and watch this live. Freedia is IT. She is LIFE. She is ALL THAT IS GORGEOUS IN THIS WORLD. So many gasp-out-loud moments, I can’t wait for you to see it. . These GIFs are just a small preview of the nuttiness to come.
Says director Clayton Cubitt of this NSFW and possibly seizure-inducing video: “Prepare yourself for machine-gun New Orleans Bounce, twerking latex-clad bunnies, intergalactic booty constellations that would make Carl Sagan cry tears of joy, an asstronaut, a possibly demonic hairless cat, and perhaps my greatest invention yet: The Asscam™.” (via boingboing)
From Cleveland’s Scene Magazine: “The Queen Diva of the Sissy Bounce movement herself strolled onstage, dropped off her purse next to the DJ’s rig and lit right into one of the hottest shows in the country. And that’s really not an overstatement.
“It was LOUD – Freedia was often calling for more volume, More Volume, MORE VOLUME! – and it was brash. She brought along a succinct dance team to round out the ‘ass-certified’ aspects of the show, as she said. And later, during her borderline hit ‘Azz Everywhere,’ she brought up about a dozen audience members to shake their stuff and get down. A choice quote from the Queen Diva: ‘Hands on the floor! Ass in the air!’
“Even in the pit in front of the stage, the dancing masses ebbed and flowed in time with the chopped-up, flibbity-bibbity, can’t-stop-won’t-stop beats and loops. The whole bit is fairly repetitive, but a dismissal like that would miss the point. Freedia’s come to free your asses minds and dish up a NOLA-style party wherever her and her dance crew find themselves.
“Freedia’s been making a name for herself and the rest of New Orleans’ sissy bounce movement for years now. With her show on the road, crisscrossing North America and shining a beacon of light on unshaken asses from Montreal to South Central, she’s proffering a grand statement: Be yaself and don’t give a good goddamn what others think. ‘Shaketh thy ass,’ to invoke Jonathan Swift.
“This mostly miraculous show brought a world of fun to Cleveland Heights’ grungy venue. Consider yourself lucky – and totally spent by the time it’s all said and done – to catch a show like that in our little corner of the otherwise Americana-laced Rust Belt.”
