For one thing, looks fade, but for another, Alana Thompson, also known as Honey Boo Boo, understands that in today’s economy, it is never too early to start thinking about your next job opportunity, and could be contemplating a new career path.
The star and title character of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” has received an offer from famed drag queen RuPaul to sing on a duet album that he is making.
“I’m doing a duet record and I’m here to ask Honey Boo Boo child to be my duet partner,” RuPaul told E! News at the MTV Video Music Awards. RuPaul added, “I love anybody who dances to the beat of a different drummer.”
RuPaul said that 7-year-old Honey Boo Boo understands drag. “She is the queen. She understands what drag is. That’s what pageants are. That’s why pageants are so lovely.”
Yes, pageants are lovely.
RuPaul, the star of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” started out in the music business when he released his first album, the unparalleled, “Supermodel of the World” in 1993, with the smash dance hit “Supermodel (You Better Work).”
Surely, you remember it?
He sang with Elton John on John’s 1993 album, “Duets.” The two collaborated on John’s song, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.” John originally recorded the song in 1976 with Kiki Dee.
His latest album, “Glamazon,” was released in April 2011 and debuted on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums chart at No. 12. It sold 2,000 copies, according to Billboard.
Honey Boo Boo has yet to enter into the fray of the music industry, but no doubt someone will see greatness (read: a paycheck) in the child star.
