ENGAGE: Write a letter to the editor | Comment on this story
Carlos Capps, and his drag alter-ego Angela Lopez in particular, are glam fixtures on the Queen City club scene. Whether it’s a bar show, a pageant or a circuit event, this dynamic entertainer always turns it out. Here at 20 Questions, we couldn’t help but wonder if the real person behind the larger than life persona matched our assumptions. Naturally, we fired over our world famous (is too!) one-of-a kind questionnaire to find out. Have a look at what we learned.
How many live plants are in your home?
None! I can’t keep a bamboo plant alive.
What is your favorite musical group with a female lead singer?
En Vogue. Their harmonies were so smooth.
Do you more often wash dishes by hand or in a dishwasher?
I believe dishwashers are here for a reason, so my motto is “Rinse and load.”
What one piece of jewelry do you wear most?
I always wear my ring with a stone that reminds me of the ocean.
How do these drag-themed films rank based on the number of times you’ve seen them: “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert,”“The Birdcage,”“To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar,”“Victor Victoria”?
Hmmm, I think it would have to be “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar,” followed by “The Birdcage,” then “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert,” and “Victor Victoria” last.
Have you ever received a card or letter from a secret admirer?
Yes, and it was kind of creepy. It was left on my windshield and it only said, “I have been watching you and I love you!” Call me…
Who is your all-time favorite talk show host?
Chelsea Handler. I love a woman with balls, no pun intended.
What was your final trick-or-treating costume?
I was a Spartan from “300.”
How do you prefer your eggs cooked?
Sunny side up, with buttered toast.
Can you jump rope double dutch?
I used to rule the playground when it came to double dutch!
Which of the animated Disney heroines landed the best guy?
Princess Jasmine. Who wouldn’t want a prince with a flying carpet and a monkey?!?
Would you rather play a round of golf, a round of miniature golf or a round of Wii golf?
Wii golf, cause I don’t have to travel far and I can have a cocktail.
What three foods do you always eat with butter?
Pancakes, corn on the cob and biscuits, of course.
Do you know for certain what color aubergine is?
I do now! It is a dark purplish color (eggplant).
Which one of the “Friends” would make the best friend?
I didn’t really watch the show that much, but Phoebe seemed to be a good time.
What exotic animal would you most like to have as a pet?
Growing up I had a spider monkey and I loved it, so I would definitely have another one!
Have you ever been stung by a bee, hornet or wasp?
I’ve only been stung by a bee…and it hurt plenty.
French fries, hushpuppies or onion rings?
Hushpuppies with ketchup all the way.
Which family would you rather be part of: The Flintstones, The Jetsons or The Simpsons?
Duh, the Jetsons! Flying cars, instant food and a robot maid!
How long does it take to completely transform from Carlos to Angela?
In total from shaving to completion, one hour.
