Joining the most glamorous goths and ghouls at London’s deliciously debauched club night THIS IS CIRCUS, is the legendary Queen of Queens Amanda Lepore. Making the diva’s annual pilgrimage into the open arms of Circus at Cafe De Paris, Miss Lepore will be hosting the club night’s horrifying proceedings this Friday. Naturally we simply had to chat with her about all things glamour and, of course, her new album.
Be sure to join Amanda, ringleader Jodie Harsh and the rest of the freaks – Jonny Woo, Scottee, Alexis Knox, Munroe Bergdorf, Medusa, Johanna with Kris Di Angelis and Basso & Brooke spinning tunes and heads on the decks. Get ready for the fiercest fright fest this Hallows eve! Tickets will be available on the door.
Planet Notion: Are you looking forward to being the hostess with the mostess?
Amanda Lepore: Yes! Just wait and see.
PN: How long does it take the Queen of Glam to get ready?
AP: Anywhere from 2 to 5 hours.
PN: How does the London nightlife and Circus compare to the infamous escapades in New York?
AP: I think they’re very similar – lots of fashion, similar club personalities, people like to party and look great!
PN: You released your second album “I…Amanda Lapore” this year, did you encounter any challenges putting the record together?
AP: We took our time with album so I felt comfortable with the process. I found it more challenging preparing for my New York album release. It was challenging to sing with a band and learn all the choreography for the dance routines. I still had a great time and it seemed to work well with the crowd!
PN: What kind of record is it? What’s the vibe?
AP: There are various styles on this album: pop, electro, hip hop, disco, rock – it’s a melting pot of good music. Some of my favorite songs on the album are “Turn Me Over”, “Marilyn”, “Nails Done” and “Doing It My Way” video coming soon!
PN: Will you be getting involved with any other musical projects in the future?
AP: Yes, I will continue to tour and leave my options open for what ever comes next.
PN: What keeps you coming back to London year after year?
AP: My friends and the cute boys. I always have a good time in London.
PN: What does a party queen like yourself do when she’s not glamming up for a night on the town?
AP: Yoga, jewelling dresses and pasties, movies, romantic dinners, modeling and running errands. The “glamming” part is a lot easier LOL!
PN: What does Miss Lepore do on her downtime?
AP: I don’t think I have downtime!
PN: What are your ultimate glamour tips?
AP: Perfect waves, platinum hair, perfectly applied makeup, the highest heels, a tight dress, hormones, hormones, hormones and dilating my pussy. I like to keep my pussy open so I can breathe.
