Shea Coulee and Sasha Velour were on the same bill as Miley Cyrus at Capital Pride in Washington D.C. Cyrus was there raising awareness for her foundation that helps LGBTQ homeless youth. Backstage, Cyrus freaked out (and rightfully so) over the RuPaul’s Drag Race finalists and the pics are priceless.
We imagine what they may have been thinking and saying during the cute moment.
On her way to craft services, Miley sees the two queens from afar and is shook.
Miley: “OMG! Save me a cheeseburger. I gotta say, ‘Hi.'”
She quickly runs over to get up close and personal.
Miley: “We gotta get closer, y’all. I have to touch them.”
Shea Coulee and Sasha Velour are chill as fuck.
Shea: “Did she pay for the meet and greet?”
Sasha: “Shut up and just smile.”
Miley geeks out that someone is capturing the moment on film.
Miley: “Can you AirDrop me that photo?”
Security guard: “Step back, Ms. Cyrus. Please don’t touch the queens.”
How adorable is that?
Miley Cyrus has always bee a huge fan of drag queens for some time now. During a surprise performance during the 2015 VMAs, she featured 30 drag queens, many who appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race.
The VMA host closed out the 32nd annual awards show with her song, “Dooo It,” taking the stage with Laganja Estranja, Pandora Boxx, Violet Chatchki, Shangela, Vivacious, Gia Gunn, Porkchop, Pearl, Jessica Wild, Jiggly Caliente, Delta Work, Courtney Act, Carmen Carrera, Cake Moss, Barbie’s Addiction, Alexis Mateo, Alyssa Edwards and more queens from the show.
But her love for drag and RuPaul goes back even further than 2015. She told Parade back in 2010:
And I don’t really watch television at all. But there is one show I’m addicted to: RuPaul’s Drag Race. I love me some RuPaul. I love RuPaul’s motto. It goes something like, ‘A real lady is never bitchy, a real lady is sassy.’
Cyrus announced at the concert that Converse would be teaming up with her foundation Happy Hippie to create merch that will raise funds for LGBTQ homeless youth. Earlier this month, Converse launched a Pride collection of sneakers in its classic silhouette, with all net proceeds going to fund the It Gets Better Project and the Happy Hippie Foundation.
