While the nature of RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race means that every week a talented drag-testant will be going home, the elimination of Nina Flowers was certainly surprising.
She had been the runner-up in Season 1 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, but in the All Stars edition, Nina was part of the eliminated team Brown Flowers. Nina was gracious enough to respond via email to our 7 Questions, as well as a few other questions about what she’s doing now & how she felt about her elimination.
Channel Guide Magazine: Nina Flowers – I’m so surprised! Why do you think you went home so early?
Nina Flowers: I think I was far from what they were looking for in their All Star winner.
CGM: Were you happy with your team? Were you glad you were paired with Tammie Brown?
Nina Flowers: Absolutely, I love Tammie on both a personal and professional level. Tammie is extremely original and very funny. I find her refreshing. She’s not trying to emulate anyone. She is her own creation. Some people don’t get it, but still she stays true to herself like a real artist does. And I have a lot of respect for that.
CGM: What are you doing next? Where can people see you? More as a DJ or in drag?
Nina Flowers: I’m currently working on a new single with DJ and Producer MDW, titled “THE QUEENS”. I’m also still traveling across the nation both as a DJ and an entertainer. My schedule is full all the way till March of 2013. My fans and friends can keep up with me on my website at www.ninaflowers.com, where I have the most recent dates to all of upcoming events.
The 7 Questions
You’re at a magazine rack and can pick three titles, which ones do you choose?
I choose one on fashion, such as Vogue; one on music, like Billboard and a third on makeup, such as Make up Magazine.
Your DVR can only carry 3 shows, which ones would you want?
Oh Lord, that’s a tuff one, because I have so many. At the moment it would be Walking Dead, Revenge, and Damages.
What’s been your strangest fan encounter?
One time at an airport a lady got so excited she started screaming my name out loud and she got so emotional she started crying. People started staring at me like I did something bad to her. It was sweet, but embarrassing at the same time.
Tell me about a time when you were starstruck.
Music is my passion, so meeting a few of my favorite DJ’s and Producers have definitely put me in that spot. When I saw Ru for the first time I was also starstruck.
What are three things you must have in your fridge or pantry?
Cooked ham, chocolates and Coke Zero.
What are your three favorite movies?
Damn! Another hard question…I love movies! So there are many to choose from… Powder, The House of the Spirits, and The Help.
Vicki Lawrence’s Mama or Carol Burnett’s Eunice?
Carol Burnett’s Eunice HANDS DOWN!
RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race airs Monday nights, 8pm/9pm ET on LOGO!
