Yesterday The Vivienne, winner of the first season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race UK” has been tweeting about her refusal to perform on “The X Factor”
Until they realise that drag queens are artists who need Also need paying, Ill politely decline. Everybody else will be getting paid apart from the drag queens? Not acceptable
Many fans have been supportive of the tweet, and many were surprised by the fact that a big production like “The X factor” wouldn’t pay a performer.
Baga Chipz, who has performed on the night, confirmed that she had just been offered payment
It was my mistake I’ve just had to sign a form… girls been paid
she tweeted with laughing face emojis.
However, just a few minutes before the live show on Saturday, “X factor” repshave confirmed all performers on the X Factor: Celebrity final are getting paid
The Vivienne’s reply was almost immediate:
How convenient, she tweeted. Not until I called them out did it suddenly become a mistake. We were BOTH told on the same phone call it was UNPAID. I call bullsh*t.
