She might not have triumphed over Bianco Del Rio's acerbic wit to claim the top crown on Ru Paul's Drag Race: Season 6, but drag superstar Adore Delano has proven that you shouldn't underestimate an ambitious queen with talons and talent.
Her 2014 debut album, Till Death Do Us Party shot to the top of the Billboard dance charts and sold 5,000 copies within its first week, an unparalleled feat that saw her rake in more sales than any drag contestant in the history of Logo's most popular reality series.
Liberally borrowing an iconic phrase from drag sister Gia Gunn, the latest single to be lifted from the hit album is a dark, throbbing, electro-gasmic club track with a subversively glamorous video. Filmed in Sydney during a trip to Australia in 2014, "Jump The Gun" features gratuitous crotch shots and Delano in all her tucked glory, face beaten to perfection. Adore struts out her best hooker-chic persona, embraces the darkness of a leather-clad Maleficent, rips a page out of all those brilliantly graffitied hip-hop videos of the '80s, and gives Olivia Newton-John a run for her money in a tight black leotard. It's Beastie Boy-meets-Brooke Candy.
While the prisonyard scenes -- featuring muscle-bound men boxing and pumping iron in their Aussiebum underwear -- are undeniably red-hot, they're nothing compared to what happens when the hot tub is all fired up. Dripping wet amid steamy waters, Adore locks lips with fellow Drag Race alum Courtney Act in a fiery kiss that defies conservative tastes and demonstrates there's absolutely nothing wrong with two drag sisters getting it on in a hot tub. So yeah, let's have a kai kai. In a hot tub. Why not?
