“I’ve had so much done to my body,” proclaims Detox Icunt on a recent episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race. “I’ve had my hips and my ass done, I’ve had my pecs done, underneath my eyes done, my six-pack done, my cheeks done and my lips done, my brow done and my jawline done, my shoulders — my muscles are all silicone … I’m like walking Tupperware, girl, I’m part of the Glad family of products.” Well, at least she’s not afraid to admit it. The unabashedly artificial queen uses her augmented looks to good effect on the show, managing to be at once glamorous and down-to-earth as she flexes her pneumatic lips with campy glee. Detox’s comedic talents have also enhanced other endeavors; she’s collaborated with fellow funny ladyboy Willam Belli on parody videos like “Boy Is a Bottom.” Tonight at Play, you can take in the whole plastic package.
