What’s in Willam’s rider?
And other slightly less interesting things
Willam has less than zero fucks to give. And if that offends you, please let the door hit your ass on the way out.
She’s not the queen of mean - she’s more like the queen of tell-you-to-your-face, with wit, humour, smarts and lots of swear words.
Since being kicked off of Rupaul’s Drag Race, the bodacious blond has been busy forming a band, disbanding the band, acting in a web series and launching her own hit series called the Beatdown. She’ll be touring with the Battle of the Seasons in spring 2016, rocking more slutty, ‘90s spring break wear than you can shake a broken mannequin’s leg at. I sent Willam some questions of email before her appearance at Pride Toronto’s drag extravaganza: Willam. Model. Actress. Mattress. She answered them with little to zero effort, but that’s why we love her. Right? I think?
What are some of the highlight items from your rider?
I have water, a mirror and earplugs on my rider. That’s it. I’m low maintenance.
When you’re performing in a big gay club, what is something you love?
Grabbing dicks at meet and greets.
What is something you hate?
I don’t hate anything about going to clubs.
How often do you type your own name into Google?
I don’t do that.
Let’s talk Beatdown: It’s real, real funny. Do you write out any of your rants, or do you just get in front of the camera and go?
It’s all off the cuff.
How is your dog Warner doing?
Warner is well.
You went to the Patricia Fields store closing! Did you buy anything? What are your thoughts on it closing?
I bought a few things. I’ve now seen all three of Pat’s NYC locations since I was 16.
What is the best way to try and charm Willam on a big night out?
Stimulate my brain.
What is happening for Willam in 2016? Tell me three things you’re excited about?
A lifestyle guide and roadmap to Hell entitled Suck Less: Where There’s a Willam, There’s a Way is coming out October 2016 from Hachette. Some acting and schmacting and who knows what else. I’m all about creating art and opportunities for me and my friends this year without waiting for someone at a network or production company to play favourites in my favour. Go your own way like Fleetwood Mac with less coke.
