4. Ed, Edd N Edit (Season 9 Episode 1 – 7)
Aja is just like Raja without the R – or the talent.
It’s actually kind of ironic that Aja chose Linda Evangelista as the subject of her ire. Just like the supermodel, this club kid doesn’t wake up for less than
$10,000 $1 a day.
I apologize if I’m coming across shady toward Aja but nothing I say can compare to the season-long treatment she received. Maybe Naomi Smalls is a producer because Aja started getting a harsh edit ever since she disrespected the 90s.
Of course this scene gets brought up a week after the FaceTuning controversy. The interns at LOGO probably snuck in and swapped all of the camera lenses with kitten filters. It’s not like they have anything to do between Golden Girls reruns…
Then in her boot episode, Aja is practically invisible. She only gets one confessional throughout the hour and she’s not even spoken about until the last few seconds. She does her lipsync to a song from Priscilla: Queen of the Desert. For us American viewers, you might know it as Dida Ritz’ Wigs: the Story.
In the end, Aja lipsyncs, RuPaul chooses Nina, and she leaves to a round of applause. So, what does Aja feel about her experience on the show? How does the show parlay her last words to the audience?
