Breakdown with THE KIKI TWINS: Interview with Sahara Davenport
THE KIKI TWINS sit down with RuPaul’s Drag Race: Season 2 break out star Sahara Davenport to talk about her new single Pump With Me available NOW on iTunes.
Name: Sahara Davenport
What do you do: I entertain the kids. I school the girls, and spread fierceness throughout the land (all in the name of DRAG)!
Where are you based: NYC
1. So tell us, what is the most FIERTH thing about you?
The most fierth thing about me is the fact that I am a DRAG QUEEN! I embrace this, and this is what I perpetuate. I am not trying to be real. I am not trying to blend. I do drag.
2. What type of art do you create and give a brief description?
I like to think that my artistic creations instigate emotion. My debut single, “Pump With Me” is an upbeat and feel good track that could lure its audience either to the dance floor or to the bedroom. I’m a very emotional person and I love art that makes me feel different things. That’s what I set out to do.
3. What’s going on right now for you?
I am currently embarking on a promo tour for the single that will include all of the fiercest venues in NYC, LA, Miami, Chicago, Las Vegas and DC.
4. What’s on your plate for the rest of 2010?
Honestly, the single has become my life right now. There is more music set for the distant future in the works, but right now my life is all about “Pump With Me”. I’m not a person that can easily multi-task, so I have to focus really hard on one thing.
5. Who’s on your radar? Who should we be keeping an eye on?
Manila Luzon, my boyfriend. A lot of people don’t know her, but after you guys see her on RuPaul’s Drag Race (Season 3) you’re going to be amazed!
6. What is something no one knows about you?
People don’t know that I get really nervous before going on stage.
7. What are some of your pet peeves?
I get really annoyed when someone that I am not acquainted with addresses me with, “Hey Bitch!” Everyone knows that it’s, “Miss Davenport”. Whatever happened to manners?
8. If you could be anywhere right now doing anything with anyone, tell us where, what and with who it would be.
My two favorite places are the stage and the beach. So, I’d either be on stage with an audience that loves me, or on the beach in Hawaii with my boyfriend (doing naughty things of course).
One final question…
10. Are we there yet?
I feel that we are very close. We are definitely on the verge of something big, but we have to just keep shaking it until it pops!
