After taking Monday off we are right back. So according to Hot New Hip Hop and Uproxx.com while rehearsing for a SNL performance with Katy Perry an a whole gang of drag-queens were supposed to participate in the performance, Migos were reportedly not down with their inclusion.
According to two queens from the SNL Staff:
Queen 1 – I was one of the performers on that table with them the whole time, during the rehearsal for 3 days. On the day of the filming, when I got there, I was told to leave. I wasn’t on the set at the time, but we were asking what happened. They said it was because Migos doesn’t feel comfortable with having drag queens here.
I heard it from the stylist. They changed the queens out in the Bon Appetit number, and they didn’t seem too thrilled during rehearsal either, with us there.
Queen 2 – I work at SNL and the rumors are true! Migos held up rehearsal because they ‘weren’t comfortable with the drag queen’s being there. There were initially more drag queens on the set for that song, but after Migos threw a fit, Katy Perry’s team removed some of the queens from the performance.
I’m sure Migos will be hearing it from the LGBT community soon if not already. Do you guys think this should be a issue? I think if they aren’t comfortable with it then they did the right thing. But that’s just my opinion. More to come as this story develops.
