In Season 5 of RuPaul's Drag Race, the world was blessed with the knowledge that the quirky and sweet queen named Jinkx Monsoon existed. Monsoon had an old-fashioned heart and vintage style that accompanied a very real musical talent. Since then, Monsoon had to crown a new queen as America's Next Top Drag Superstar, but it's not as if she's not busy seeing her star continue to rise.

This year alone, she has already released The Inevitable Album, a mix of both old-school camp and modern indie rock, and reprised her starring role in The Vaudevillians in NYC just this past month. Jinkx and the talented actor and singer who brings her to life, Jerick Hoffer, were also the subject of a YouTube documentary titled Drag Becomes Him that will be turned into a feature-length doc for release later this summer.
We spoke with Hoffer about his many new projects and are pleased to offer a free download of Monsoon's single "The Bacon Shake" right after the jump.More »
