Seems like someone's fame is going to their head. In an indirect but not so indirect post Drag Legend called out Valentina for her behavior at a recent gig. She says:
I've been in this business...awhile. I've seen many entertainers come and go. I've worked with the best in the business from RPDR stars to pageant veterans, industry legends to mainstream A list celebrities. They all had a few things in common:
They were all polite, accommodating, professional, on time, courteous, thankful, good to their fans, good to the venues, their staff and respectful of the places they are visiting- or atleast remembered WHERE they were visiting.
What they didn't do is show up an hour late, demand a show be tailored to their desires or threaten cancellation, demand police protection, be rude or dismissive to the staff facilitating their visit, disappoint their fans by cutting off meet n greets or deciding not to perform, were incapable of dressing themselves thus making others work extra to kill time, demanding to be taken to multiple restaurants and sticking the driver with the bills, why are there no red m&ms and champagne in my room? Really Queen? I could go on...like I really could keep going...
I have never witnessed the behavior that I have seen from SOME of the girls on this last season of RPDR... and I've worked with or known just about all of them since season 1. This is not about one individual person either.
I get the road can be exhausting and demanding. I've completed several national pageant tours, I've worked all across the country in the same venues, I know what the gigs entail. There are crazy fans, there are promoters and clubs that will nickel and dime or throw you into bad hotels and situations. It is perfectly acceptable to have standards and contracts on where you will sleep, what you are paid and what is expected of both parties. However, some perspective...
You are being paid large sums of money and flown around the world to play dress up and most of the time sing other people's music. You are put in 4/5 star hotels, treated like royalty, showered with gifts, endorsements, free products, you name it. Out of the 1000's of hard working, talented and deserving entertainers out there....YOU were gifted with an amazing once in a life time opportunity many others would kill for that you shit on with every diva like demand, tirade and meltdown. Not only are you ruining your own reputation, you are ruining the experience for others when club owners assume they will be just as horrific to work with as you were.
