As if #KatyPerry’s awkward dancing with Migos during their “Swish, Swish” performance on Saturday Night Live wasn’t enough to deal with, World of Wonder is now reporting that #Migos didn’t want to perform with Perry’s drag queen dancers.
According to World of Wonder (which is now deleted), there were supposed to be a lot more drag queens around the table during Perry’s “Bon Appétit” performance, but Migos refused to perform with them.
Allegedly, some of the drag queens from the performance said this:
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 there.”
Queen #2: “I heard it from the stylist. They changed the queens out in the Bon Appétit number, and they didn’t seem too thrilled during rehearsal either, with us there.”
Queen #3:“I work at SNL and the rumors are true! Migos held up rehearsal because they ‘weren’t comfortable with the drag queens’ 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. Additionally, Katy Perry didn’t invite any of the queens to the afterparty… So, none of them were allowed in.”
Capitol Music has since called the allegations “completed false and fabricated.”
