The poor butterflies from Asia O’Hara’s lip-synch on last night’s finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race 10!
Disclaimer: There aren’t any major spoilers from last night’s finale in this post, except the sad, tragic spoiler of the possible death (just let me believe they’re still alive) of the breakout stars of the entire season.
During the final Lip-Synch For YOUR Life on RuPaul’s Drag Race 9 last year, Sasha Velour made tricks everywhere fall out of their bodies when she caused a river of rose petals to rain all over her by pulling off her wig. I was impressed, but I would’ve been really impressed if a naked Mena Suvari fell out of her wig too. So now because of that, every queen who makes it to the finals thinks she needs to pull stunts to win. It’s turning into Drag Queen Circus, and like the real circus, animal activists may soon be protesting them thanks to Asia O’Hara’s sad stunt gone deathly wrong.
Asia was up against Kameron Michaels for a lip-synch to Janet Jackson’s Nasty. Before the music even started, Asia was at a disadvantage because the song is called “Nasty,” and she looked as nasty as the dew drop lying on a lady bug’s lash after a fresh spring rain in her Miss Vanjie knock-off ensemble. And then the lip-synch began, and all seemed okay until Asia opened up some kind of Finder Keepers bracelet and blew on it. I figured that either Asia was trying to blow glitter into the air, or blow cocaine into the air (hoping that shit would find its way into the nostrils of the audience and they’d cheer for her to win), or butterflies were supposed to flutter out. As a wave of HUH? danced across the faces of the queens in the audience, Asia opened up her double dome butterfly pavilion titties and the other bracelet, and the spectacular sight of absolutely nothing came out.
That’s when it became clear that Asia was supposed to unleash a magnificent display of flying butterflies. But instead of Asia’s butterflies fluttering into an ocean of oooohs and awwws from the audience, they death dropped onto the stage. That’s the thing about putting living things in a confined space without much air to breathe in….
The camera got a close-up of the butterflies barely moving on the stage as Monique Heart displayed the emotions of everyone watching by gasping in horror at the sad demise of those glamorous butterflies.

I don’t have to tell you if Asia moved on to the next round or not….
Because Asia knew that a PETA protest was about to march up into her ass, she posted a note on Instagram saying that she never meant to commit butterfly murder and that she plans to try to right that wrong by donating her time to the ASPCA.
I’d like to believe that the butterflies didn’t flutter off to the great big nectar station in the sky, and will rise like gorgeous Phoenixes and join the cast of RPDR 11 where they will win it at all.
And Asia better lay low for a while, and by “lay low” I mean “lay high,” preferably somewhere with a lot of stairs. Because the Queen of the Butterflies, Mariah Carey, is gonna git her for this, and we all know Mimi doesn’t do stairs, dahling.
