    What you haven't heard, however, is her fifth album because it's still not out.

    The absence of a Beyoncé album, or even an official single, has made summer 2013 especially difficult for those of us who rely on the glory of Mrs. Carter to get by.

    These are drag queens.

    Drag queens love Beyoncé. It's a rule, basically.

    And when drag queens love a singer, they copy… umm, pay homage to her the best way they know how: by dressing, looking, and performing like her.

    It's cool though. Because the results are amazing and fabulous and fierce enough to get us through these hard Beyoncé album-less times.
