You better burn, witch!

Once upon a time there was a little dead girl... who was actually a boy who won RuPaul's Drag Race in 2012 with her ghoulish fabulosity! Before Sharon Needles was America's next drag superstar, however, she was a child of the corn in Newton, Iowa, and then a high-fashion vampire on Pittsburgh's nightclub and underground arts scene.   

In January of this year, Needles released her first album, titled PG-13. It's a macabre blend of clubby pop and tongue-in-cheek horror movie lyrics, with titles like "Call Me on the Ouija Board," "Dead Girls Never Say No," and today's song, "This Club is a Haunted House." The song's video was filmed in New York's long-abandoned and newly repurposed McKittrick Hotel. It was directed by Michael Sharkey, who has also worked with Boy George, Adele, and Elton John.

Needles is just at the start of her ascent to the stratosphere of sickening dragdom--she's currently on a world tour, has been a horror hostess on the Logo network, and is even a spokesperson for PETA (as seen at right). Sharon Needles, you are FEARCE!
