Sharon Needles Asks Himself the Questions We're All Asking About Miley in RuPaul Drives...

We've been waiting for a Sharon Needles episode of RuPaul Drives... since the web series' inception and oh boy, it's here and it's fun. RuPaul picks up the RuPaul's Drag Race season 4 winner and it's a nonstop wit-fest from there --  Needles' joke about his hometown in Iowa being crowned "the meth capital of the world" by TIME magazine in 1996 was especially hilarious. And speaking of: this episode seems particularly timely, not just because Breaking Bad's finale has really given meth jokes a second wind, but because Sharon asks a question that seems to be hand-tailored for the debate surrounding Miley Cyrus (who also likes meth jokes). With legions of blogs finding Miley's relationship to race and cultural appropriation problematic and a few, like Vice, championing her as being truly punk rock, Sharon gets to the heart of the debate: "Do I [do what I do] to show that I'm an educated person [and] to exploit these things artistically, or am I just a punk rock brat that likes pushing people's buttons? I can't tell." Sharon's solution is to meet his critics "half way" as long as they do the same for him, and maybe Miley should follow suit. Watch above.
