WATCH: Drag Queen Performs as Kathy Griffin


Sharon Needles, winner of Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 4, gave a performance to remember on Monday night.  The drag queen recreated the Kathy Griffin photoshoot, and lip-synced along to “Heads Will Roll” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Before the performance, she headed out to her regular Monday night venue after a 14-hour flight.  At the venue, Needles made a last-minute decision to recreate the now-infamous look.  First, Needles teased up a Joan Rivers wig, and then she bloodied an Owen Wilson head.  After the performance, the drag queen said:

“It’s kind of mind boggling the levels to this story that a female comic in this day and age, who was a friend of Joan Rivers, and who was on Celebrity Apprentice with our president, is subjected to this type of abuse. I mean, if only Joan was still around. And the fact that we don’t hold our male politicians o the same standard as female comedians is shocking…”
