As you may have seen on our facebook page, we are currently sponsoring the performance Artist Scottee’s latest venture: Burger Queen.
As our government tightens its belt and enforces ever increasing bloated taxes aimed at pushing the fatties to the sidelines, Scottee raises his chubby hand and says enough is enough!
Over 4 weeks, Scottee is looking to crown Burger Queen 2011 – a beauty pageant for fat people and their friends. Each contestant will endure three rounds [with all roads leading to next weeks final!] with tasks such as Trend [fat fashion] Taste [signature dishes] and Talent [light entertainment for heavy weights] – the the competition is open to chub admirers too, anyone of any size can enter – fat is a politic not a dress size!
This weeks heat hosted judges including the Blitz Kidz Princess Julia, plus size fashion model Naomi Shimada, journalist and radio and TV presenter Amy Lame, performance artist la Gateau Chocolat and our very own National Make-up Artist Mika Doll.
The Royal Vauxhall Tavern in London was the perfect intimate venue to allow the audience to really engage with the entertainment – my favourite highlight was Bea Sweet [the eventual winner in the amazing turban, below] sing Rihanna’s Man Down with an operatic/ gangster feel – the performance blew the mind of the crowd and solidified Bea’s place as champion of round III!
The final will take place at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern on Wednesday 22nd June, and I definitely recommend this as a light-hearted night out with a few drinks and great, positive entertainment.
