Pabllo Vittar, History-Making Drag Performer, Gets Another MTV Award

Pabllo Vittar at MTV Awards Brazil

Things are still looking up for Brazil's Pabllo Vittar. Last night the drag performer and pop star made her now annual appearance at the MTV Millennial Awards Brazil. In the end, she walked away with another trophy.

For the past three years, Vittar has performed at the awards show, which functions as Brazil's version of the Video Music Awards — that means since the beginning. In that time, she's been nominated in a few categories and in 2019, she picked up her first trophy which was for Musical Artist of the year in 2018. Then, she went international, picking up Best Brazilian Artist at the MTV Europe Music Awards. Now, she's back, snagging Hit of the Year for her track "Amor de Que." Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande's "Rain On Me" became the International Hit of the Year

 

"Amor de Que" was first a single off of Vittar's 111 1 EP which was released in October 2019 but then also appeared on 111, the album. It became a massive song for Brazillian Carnival earlier this year.

As a drag performer, Vittar's accomplishments are unprecedented. Though RuPaul certainly made — and continues to make — an impression with her music, and RuPaul's Drag Race alum like Adore Delano and Trixie Mattel, have been doing the same, none of accomplished nearly as much as Vittar has, nor been taken quite as seriously as a musician. Vittar remains the only Grammy nominated drag performer after being n ominated for "Sua Cara" at the Latin Grammy Awards in 2018. Still, drag is but a detail to who she is as a musician and that has amassed her a legion of followers, making her the most followed drag performer on Instagram. 

This year, she was also a face of Calvin Klein's Pride campaign.
