Michelle Visage reads ‘cold’ Jessie J to high filth over her infamous Drag Race tour appearance
Michelle Visage slammed Jessie J for being “cold” and “not nice” when she joined the Drag Race cast on tour.
The Drag Race legend was praising recent guest judge Nicki Minaj when she took the opportunity to take a quick swipe at Jessie J.
She said that the rapper was an “unbelievable” addition to the season 12 premiere.
“What I loved about Nicki is that she was so, I don’t want to say ‘real’ because it’s a stupid term, but she was genuine, honest and herself,” she told Gay Times.
“When superstars come in, you don’t know what you’re going to get.
“You don’t know if they’re going to be standoffish, not nice, a total cold person like Jessie J was to us when we did the tour in Australia.”
Michelle Visage said Jessie J used drag queens to repair her reputation.
Visage has previously spoken about the time Jessie J joined the Drag Race: Battle of the Seasons tour in Australia in 2016.
The British singer was Down Under to serve as a coach on The Voice Australia when came out as a surprise guest.
Fans were thrilled, but behind the scenes it was alleged that Jessie J had ignored Visage and the queens, who later accused her of using them to repair her damaged reputation after she’d been involved in a spat with fellow judge Delta Goodrem.

“She stood there… surrounded by people making a human forcefield around her. Never said hi, she was talking on her phone and was snap chatting, but never introduced herself,” Visage said on a 2016 edition of her’s and RuPaul’s podcast, What’s The Tee.
She came into our house never said thank you, hello or anything, didn’t even associate.
“She said some compromising words about an Australian artist and had got into a Twitter spat and the backlash in Australia was very bad.
“So she was like, ‘Oh, damage control, let me dance with some drag queens.'”
When Gay Times expressed their surprise at Visage’s criticism, she quipped: “I don’t care if you put that in there. It wasn’t nice.”
“We were so excited too,” she continued. “She wasn’t nice.
“I was so excited and then I was like, ‘Boo!’ Let me tell you, there’s few voices that could hold up to hers. That b***h can sang, oh my god.
“It made me sad, which is why I don’t want to meet Madonna. I don’t want to be let down!”
