Recently I have been accused of using this column for getting trade and, even better, getting revenge. Goodness me, if I had tried to use Dragstar for getting trade, let me tell you it hasn’t worked very well.

Out of three or four years of writing, my dance card has been left very empty. It seems not many gay boys want their very own Carrie Bradshaw. So you can strike off getting trade from my agenda list for Dragstar. And now for revenge:

I don’t really believe in revenge, I believe more in karma. Why get yourself worked up with the whole revenge process when karma is going to come and bite you in bum anyway?

So now that is sorted, on to my main topic for this week. Last Wednesday night I was lucky enough to attend once again the Australian MTV awards. I am sure all my regular readers know by now how much of a star fucker I am, though I am not as bad as I used to be.

Anyway, the night was filled with celebrities as far as the eye could see. I literally bumped into Snoop Dogg -“ as I came out of the toilet, he was sneaking into the back exit to the media room.

I have to admit that he and his minders did get a little scared. I finally got my long-time wish to speak to Russell Crowe, though I am not sure how well he took my comment: I have watched Gladiator a thousand times, and a couple with my pants on. A polite smile and off he went. Oops!

What I really want to touch on is a fabulous person who has been around for many years. Without her the MTV awards would not have been possible.

Many know how fantastic Verushka Darling really is. I have known her for quite a while, working with her many times on various projects. Verushka has had huge success with her program on MTV and is now working in production.

Verushka kicks arse wherever she goes and the next thing she knows, she is writing scripts for none other than David Hasselhoff. I can see a series in the making, The Hoff and the Drag Queen.

As the snowball started to gain momentum, Verushka found herself being asked to write the script for the entire awards ceremony. So the one and only Verushka Darling created everything that anyone said on the night.

Sitting the whole evening in a tiny room making sure the autocue was correct, she fed every humorous line to come out of Ashley Simpson’s mouth. Let’s face it, Ashley Simpson may be pretty but witty she isn’t.

Congrats, Verushka, you truly are a star. I feel privileged to know you.
