I’m competing in a tri-state drag pageant. There’s a huge, shiny, phallic trophy and I want it.
I sing “You’ll see”. I don’t lip-sync, I sing. It’s my thing.
I have no monitor! I gesture to the sound guy. I try to make the gesturing into a dance move. He
doesn’t get it. I forget my choreography. Now I’m singing out of key and trying to make up dance
moves. I forget the lyrics.
I kick the monitor. My heel breaks. I try to walk off, but suddenly my leg gives. I fall. My dress
tears. The audience laughs. Then Madonna appears to me in the wings:
MADONNA SPECTACLE AS MADONNA, WHISPERING
Madonna Spectacle… you don’t need anyone at all!
I have a flash of inspiration, and as I drag my sorry drag-queen ass off the stage, I shout:
MADONNA SPECTACLE, SHOUTING, TEARY EYED AND BROKEN*
I know I’ll survive
I know I’ll stay alive!
They love me! They think it’s a comedy routine. I don’t get the trophy. I’m a genius. I’m not. I just
have a really cool guardian angel.
