When we asked RuPaul’s Drag Race UK season one star Baga Chipz for a lip-sync performance to mark Pride, we weren’t expecting her to give us a full live vocal performance of stunning grace and beauty - though perhaps we should have.
Nor were were expecting her to use her moment to thank Attitude for apparently naming her 'Most Famous Woman in Britain' [ed's note: there is no award].
Nonetheless, after thanking Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Diana and "Sally from Coronation Street" Baga has given us her take on Liza Minnelli's 1977 classic ‘New York, New York’ as part of Attitude's Superdrag Lip-sync, supported by Slingsby.
Complete with new and updated lyrics - out are the old ‘little town blues’ and in are the ‘Topshop shoes’ - Baga is guaranteed to put you in the Pride mood and make you feel "MUCH BETTA" about the coming year.
Also taking part in Superdrag Lip-sync, supported by Slingsby, is RuPaul’s Drag Race series 13 alum La La Ri, RuPaul's Drag Race UK season two star Asttina Mandella, as well as Chiyo, ShayShay, Cheddar Gorgeous and Barbs.
Superdrag Lip-sync, supported by Slingsby, is part of Attitude Pride at Home, in association with Klarna, that runs from 17-27 June at attitude.co.uk, youtube.com/attitudemag and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@attitudemag).
Attitude Pride at Home, in association with Klarna, is to benefit the Attitude Magazine Foundation for LGBT causes – this year supporting ten amazing organisations including AKT, Black Trans Foundation, Curly’s Legacy, Elton John AIDS Foundation, The Food Chain, Kaleidoscope Trust, LGBT Youth Scotland, Mermaids, Stonewall UK and Switchboard LGBT.
