Just in case you missed Big Freedia setting the world record for twerking, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to see the Queen of Bounce in action. Big Freedia’s new reality TV show debuted Wednesday night on Fuse TV:
The show’s first two episodes reportedly trace the history of bounce music and Freedia’s place in it, along with featuring fellow New Orleans-based artists Sissy Nobby and Ward Buck.
Over at the Times-Picayune, Allison Fensterstock writes about the show:
It’s pretty wacky. (Reality shows are supposed to be wacky.) What the show really seems to present, though it’s likely too early to tell, is the world of a gracious, mellow and hardworking performer surrounded by a little bit of crazy, but also – more so – a solid community of friends, family and fans. Will that provide enough drama to sustain a reality show? For the New Orleanians and others who’ve been rooting for Big Freedia since the star began to rise, we can hope.
The show airs on Wednesdays at 11/10c.
