They say there’s nothing worse than a “messy queen”! For those of you who aren’t familiar with the lingo, a “messy queen” is defined as the following:
An openly Gay male exhibiting flamboyant effeminate tendencies, who intentionally causes scandal and chaos by gossiping, arguing and fighting.
ie a scandalous boy…. gossiping homosexual… homewrecking homo.
Cue celebrity hairstylist and friend of the site Derek J…
But unfortunately due to Derek’s celebrity status (he’s been featured on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Kandi Factory, Hair Battle Spectacular and more), he’s been a ‘messy queen’ magnet all week!
A few days ago, I got an email asking me to give ‘Derek J’ call at a number I’d never seen before.
Derek just so happens to be my new hairstylist, so clearly I have his number in my contacts, but I assumed he was asking me to his salon, The J-Spot.
I called the unknown number and the “messy queen” on the other end of the line proceeded to tell me he was Derek J and wanted to send photos of his new man.
I didn’t recognize the voice as being Derek’s & when I asked ‘who is this?’ he promptly hung up. I realized then that it wasn’t Derek and even called him to confirm. We decided that I’d play along and see what happens.
Long story short (insert side-eye), a “messy queen” named Caleb had stolen someone’s phone who happened to be a friend of Derek’s and decided to spill the “TEA”… but instead of putting that person on blast, ‘Caleb’ decided it would be best to impersonate Derek J and SEND HIS OWN PHOTO to the blogs (ie me) so that he could get some shine online.
He even sent one of him in his skivvies.
Needless to say, I have no idea how I got caught up in the gay boy drama but hey… you know we love our gheys in Atlanta so I’m always down for a lil catfighting.
Fast forward a three days and yet another ‘messy queen’ walks into Derek’s salon waving a firearm!
I got a call yesterday afternoon and the conversation goes…
DerekJ:? Girrrrl you need to do a post on QUEENS GONE WILD! Some fool came in here waving a dayum gun!
Me: What the hail?? That fool is crazy! Was he mad you put his pictures on twitter.
[Sidebar: In my head at the time he was telling me the story were visions of? 4 big tall dudes with long flowing hair armed with blow dryers led by Derek J rocking a hawt pair of Jimmy Choos!? But I digress…]
Me: Hold up wait… back up… a gun?
DerekJ: Yes… a GUN!? So Neffe was in here getting her hair done and no one couldn’t figure out how to get that wig off her head. So I suggested they call the stylist who did it to find out how to get it off.
When they called the other hair stylist to find out what glue he used on Neffe’s head, he took offense and started cursing… saying how he wasn’t going to let anyone demean his work.
As with any “messy queen”… it ain’t over til it’s over! A few hours later the other stylist showed up at the J-Spot armed (literally) and ready for battle.
DerekJ spoke to WSB-TV last night and explained…
“Her (hair was) messed up to the point we didn’t know what to do. So I was just like, reach out to the stylist and say ‘Hey, what did you use, what did you do?” and it turned from a professional conversation to more of an argument but we thought it was done.” Said Jay.
“A few hours later a gentleman shows up, the other stylist, wanting to talk and started an argument. I asked him to leave,” owner Lisa McCall said.
Workers at the salon told Young the other stylist waved his gun around the shop.
“Before turning away, he waved the gun in my face and said, ‘You don’t think I will?’ And I backed up,” McCall said.
“And we know who the person is. And then when he did come, we knew it wasn’t a good thing when he came, but we thought it was going to be a quick exchange with words and then he was going to be gone. So, nobody really knew he would pull out a gun,” Jay said.
Jay said he wants the other stylist off the streets. So far, police have not made an arrest in the incident.
Dayum…. they shoulda had the cameras rolling for “Hair Battle Spectacular”!
I told Derek I’m gonna post up in the corner of the J-Spot one day with some popcorn because their “reality” is way better than television.
