You may or may not remember this song and video, depending on your age and knowledge of obscure ’80s drag ephemera. I had completely forgotten about it until Matthew Rettemund posted it the other day on Boy Culture, and realized, boy oh boy, does it deserve a thorough re-examination.
Gino – terribly handsome, here, in a very specific, early-’80s sort of way – croons about a cuckoo has-been starlet who wears too much makeup and smokes too many French cigarettes and – SPOILER ALERT! – might just be Gino in drag. Maybe? Possibly? I don’t know. You tell me. Just watch the throwback video, below, and luxuriate in the nuttiness of pre-Drag Race drag.
