Alaska Thunderfuck, aka Alaska5000, aka Lil Poundcake, aka the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 2 is an all-around star. With a new album out with hits like “This Is My Hair” (as in, “this is my hair, I don’t wear wigs”) and “Nails” (as in, “if you’re not wearing nails, you’re not doing drag”), among some other nearly unmentionable titles, she’s one of our all-time favorite queens.
