Sharon Needles was in Atlanta in November 2012 to judge the Miss Originality competition at Jungle nightclub. Shortly after the competition wrapped, the custom-made crown Sharon wore while judging went missing.
The mystery “Ru-dunnit” became the basis of a campaign for Absolut, with Sharon Needles, Michelle Visage and a Facebook page asking anyone with any information to help Detective Visage find the culprit.
But who needs a detective when you have a camera-whore drag queen? Violet Chachki, an up-and-coming performer on Atlanta’s scene, posted a photo of herself wearing nothing but fishnets and a crown that looks suspiciously similar to the one Sharon lost. It also just so happens that Chachki was a contestant at the Miss Originality competition in Atlanta . . .
Chachki isn’t confirming or denying that the crown she’s wearing is Sharon’s, telling Project Q, “Unfortunately I am not in a position to share any information with you guys at this time, but keep an eye out.”
