Drag Queen Shuga Cain Is Answering AOC’s Cry For Help On Her Journey To Glow Up

If Jesus Martinez didn’t quit his six-figure corporate job to become a full-time drag queen, we may have never known Shuga Cain, as seen on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” Shuga Cain and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have a lot more in common than Latinidad. They both have risked the only life they’ve ever known to achieve their dreams. They both share the same political ideologies, and Shuga Cain has rooted AOC’s rise to influence within Congress.

That said, AOC said it first: she doesn’t know mierda about glam. Now, Shuga Cain is offering to teach her some of her tricks, and the Internet is stanning the collaboration we never knew we needed.

Once AOC took to her Instagram story to announce to the world she was on “the struggle bus big time,” trying to “glow up,” Shuga Cain came to the rescue.

Over Labor Day weekend, AOC seemed to take the opportunity to play around with some false lashes. We didn’t get a glimpse at the lashes in action, but rather a photo of the lashes retired to their box, to be glued on another day. The freshman Congresswoman joked, “I am trying to practice my glow up skills and am on the struggle bus big time.” It seems she’s definitely having a sense of humor about it. ????

Miss Shuga Cain heard the cry for help and offered her help.

The drag queen, who starred in Season 11 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” shared the image of the sad lashes to her Twitter account with a question we all didn’t even know we needed to hear: “@AOC, how about we do a glam session together?” Miss Shuga Cain offered, “I’ll teach you some of my tricks! ????” While we can’t quite price the worth of that glam session, we know it’s probably far out of the Congresswoman’s budget, and a generous gift from Miss Cain.

Claro, AOC is a logical woman and accepted the offer.

“I’d love that!” AOC replied, along with emojis signifying her signature Puerto Rican red lip look. “YAASS! Let do it!! Messaging you!” Shuga Cain replied. While their first ever online exchange seems to be ongoing within private messages, Twitter is speculating on all the ways we wish to see this collaboration meet the public eye.

Fans are asking that AOC join “RuPaul’s Drag Race” as a guest judge on the next season.

Imagine the BTS the American public deserves–to see Shuga Cain doing AOC’s makeup before the show. Imagine forever being able to watch AOC apply those lashes and red lip on her Instagram story while she talks about the origin story of Taki’s and Trader Joe’s rip off of Latin culture? Imagine the possibilities.

Others are calling out AOC for already being a perfect angel.

“Miss Ocasio-Cortez is already the most glowingly glown-up EVERRR!” tweeted one major AOC fan. It’s a hard tug-of-war between needing the collaboration video of AOC and Miss Shuga Cain interacting and knowing that beauty procedures as small as gluing eyelashes onto your lids is just enablement of patriarchal beauty standards that ultimately cost women their money and time. We get it. 

Shuga Cain has publicly supported AOC’s politics time and time again.

Earlier this year, Shuga Cain retweeted a viral video of AOC telling seven big bank CEOs. She said, “In my district, I represent Riker’s island. I represent kids that go to jail for jumping a turnstile because they can’t afford a MetroCard.” She’s demanding answers for why the wealthy law-breakers responsible for the 2008 financial crisis aren’t being held to account. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again!” Shuga Cain tweeted, thanking AOC for “standing up for all of us!! We all, including myself, need to learn from her example and stand up for each other and hold these crooks accountable!” Just a couple months later, Shuga Cain shared a video of AOC condemning the notion of a war with Iran, being sure to applaud AOC with a “COME THRUUUU @AOC!!!!”

All we know is that AOC is glowing up the American government, and Shuga Cain is more than capable of offering AOC the glow up she’s asking for.

Yeah, we think Shuga Cain can handle a pair of false lashes, top and bottom. We’re with the stans: live stream this makeover or bust.

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ted Cruz are at it again on Twitter. This time it’s about immigration policy. After recently traveling to the US-Mexican border to underline the recent rise in immigration, Cruz accused AOC of pushing for a “full open borders” policy.

And of course, AOC got him with some solid zingers.

AOC in turn hit back at Cruz for recently fleeing his home state of Texas during its power grid collapse to vacation in Cancún.

In response to Cruz’s attack, AOC suggested Mexico avoid allowing Cruz in the next time he attempts to vacation there. She also called on him to resign from office for his attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“Ted, this is pretty rich coming from someone who fled their own home (and responsibilities) during an environmental crisis to cross the border and seek refuge in Mexico,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Also you funded cages, expanded cages, and yet you’re complaining about cages. You have no policy, just puff.”

Ocasio-Cortez accused Republicans of hypocritically attacking the current administration’s detention of migrant children at the border after they supported President Donald Trump’s policy of separating migrant parents from their children.

Currently, Democrats like AOC are calling on Biden to impliment more liberal immigration policies.

Republicans have strongly expressed their dislike for the recent rise in migrants which has come as a result of Biden’s reversal of Trump’s most rigid border policies.

AOC is currently a co-sponsor of the Roadmap to Freedom resolution. The resolution calls on the Federal Government to develop and implement a Roadmap to Freedom “in order to overhaul the outdated immigration system in the United States that has gone without significant reform for decades, and to relieve the great human impact an unjust system bears on communities around the country.”

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Star Denali Serves Disco in Kali Uchis “Telepatía” Video

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Star Denali Serves Disco in Kali Uchis “Telepatía” Video

Even though she was recently eliminated from RuPaul’s Drag Race, Denali is creating waves online with her lip sync videos. In her latest visual, the Mexican-American drag queen tackles Kali Uchis’ viral hit “Telepatía.”

The “Latina que Patina” made her mark on Drag Race.

Denali, the self-proclaimed “Latina que Patina,” was competing on season 13 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. During her run on the show, she served plenty of moments that paid homage to her Mexican heritage, including a standout lip-sync dressed as Quetzalcoatl.

Denali, who is also of Jewish descent, finished in eighth place. We sadly missed out on a Denali and Valentina crossover moment because of that elimination. While we’re sure there will be an All-Stars placement in her future, she’s keeping her digital presence alive. On Denali’s YouTube channel, she’s done lip sync videos for Britney Spears’ “If U Seek Amy” and the Pussycat Dolls’ “When I Grow Up.”

Denali’s “Telepatía” video is everything.

Recently Denali released a video lip sync of Colombian-American singer Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía.” This is the perfect synergy of queer Latina power as Denali noted in her post. “Super thankful to Kali Uchis and her team at EMI Records for this opportunity!” she wrote. “Having had this song on repeat since it came out and it’s such an honor to promote for more queer Latinx queens.” Uchis is openly bisexual.

In the VHS-like visual, Denali is living her disco fantasy. There are moments that are reminiscent of Studio 54 and other stunning shots of the drag queen at the beach. Shanté, you stay!

Denali is not the only queer artist taking on Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía.” She retweeted the account @imirregulargirl who gives the sensual smash justice as well.
