“America’s Next Top Model” host Tyra Banks is rolling out a series that elevates teenage drag queens, and singer Lil Nas X, who infamously released blood-infused Satan Shoes, is trying to recruit famous children’s performers to tour with him.
Banks’ new six-episode series “Generation Drag” will follow five teenagers and their families in the lead-up to a drag show event held in Denver, Colorado. The show will be launched on the Discovery+ network on June 1, to kick off gay pride month.
The former model praised the teens for their willingness to put their “fierceness” on display for a national audience.
“I have such admiration and respect for these teens. They are bravely navigating coming into their own in a world that can be very challenging and not always accepting. What is so beautiful is seeing their parents and siblings supporting them,” Banks said.
“These teens’ laser-focused tenacity inspires my team and me and we are honored to share their stories,” she continued. “I can’t wait for these popping personalities to show their fierceness to the world.”

Meanwhile, “Old Town Road” rapper Lil Nas X seems to be trying to attract children to his upcoming 14-city “Long Live Montero” tour, by inviting Australian children’s music group “The Wiggles” to perform with him.
“Trying really hard to get the wiggles to co-headline the tour with me. I will keep you guys updated,” he tweeted last week. “We’re ready to wiggle with you!” The group responded, along with four multi-colored heart emojis
We’re ready to wiggle with you! 💛💜💙❤️

No word on how the “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” singer will incorporate a children’s group into his act, when the song’s music video featured him giving the devil a lapdance, then snapping his neck and taking over his role as ruler of hell.
