Miss Fame Calls Out Justin Bieber for Low-Balling Queer Artists

Featured Posts

After receiving an offer to appear in a new music video from Justin Bieber's team, drag and makeup mogul Miss Fame is putting her foot down and sending a message to the industry-at-large: come correct or don't come at all.

Miss Fame took to Instagram stories on Wednesday to publicly call out Bieber for a lazy grab at the "Gay dollar," without truly investing in LGBTQ+ artists and performers.

She started by posting a screenshot of a conversation between what appears to be Bieber's team and her own about the filming of a new music video for the Biebs in Los Angeles. The email states that Bieber's team was willing to pay only $500 — which Miss Fame notes would not be enough to even cover the cost of her flight — for her to appear in the new visual. They tout that she would be the only drag queen to appear in the video immediately following a statement about having a back-up queen.

The two Instagram story posts that followed called out the industry more generally for tokenizing queerness and taking advantage of inclusivity as an aesthetic rather than a mission. "To @justinbieber team: If you want to involve LGBTQIA+ Artist in a JB music videos, I suggest respectable compensation/rate for their (mine) time & talent," she writes on the next story. "I can't pay my rent off of the 'honor' or 'experience.'"

She respectfully declines the offer, then, but not before taking a moment to direct her message to all brands that attempt the very same thing: "If you request my services, pay my rate."

Could've taken a page out of the "perpetual liar"'s book and done it right.

What kind of self-respecting drag queen would even want to be in a JB video? :ohwell:

Spoiler

on a real level though, if you want queer representation in your video, power to you, but do it right 

 

 

Bryoncé, Lorde, Rihanna, Arianna, SZA, and the list goes on

Grasping at trends i see... although Drag Queens have always been around. It's an uphill battle but  I'm glad the queens are taking a stand. Know your research and respect, Bieber.

Question, Miss Fame obviously does not deserve a pay that low. But do they pay that little to people in music videos? Gurl, that is hard work, like, I teach and for private tutoring my hours start from 150, who you gonna pay only 500 to be in a ****ing music video? Is this **** for real? Do I sound entitled? This should not be right. 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
