I have always been lucky to have tons of talented, awesome people out there who listen to my music. This is not lost on me for a second…and I especially love it when those people do cool things with my songs in return.
My undying love for Austin’s drag-punk-terror powerhouse Christeene is no secret. It takes a lot to shock me, but every time I find myself in the presence of this magical creature, she manages to take me there (and, more often than not, way beyond there).
This past year she also won the heart of Boy George, who, after watching her tear up the stage across the pond, tweeted, “What a fucking awesome hip hop, Beyonce, Evil Dead, queercore, unapologetic, sick show…KILL FOR A TICKET!”
The brainchild of performance artist and musician Paul Soileau, Christeene Vale is a self-described “human pissoire of raw unabashed sexuality; a gender-blending, booty-pounding, perversion of punk fully equipped with an arsenal of ferocious music intertwined with raw moments of strained intimacy and fiery stank” — which pretty well sums it up.

With the Project Runway Season 13 reunion show airing this week, I thought now would be a perfect time to catch up with my darling friend (and Season 13 finalist), Emily Payne, about her time as a contestant on the show this year and what life is like now that it’s over.
Payne is a San Francisco-based designer and full-blown visionary. Overseeing two fashion houses of her own creation — Leathertongue and Devon Rose — and balancing motherhood and newfound mainstream television fame, Emily is riding the Project Runway rollercoaster with a level of grace fans of the show have not seen before. If you caught any of this season, you have no doubt already fallen head-over-heels in love with this sweet, talented creature.
Watch Emily Payne’s pre-season designer home visit video, then read our chat below – and be sure to tune into Lifetime Thursday for the reunion. The trailer promises fireworks!
Logan Lynn: Hey Emily! Thanks for chatting with me today. Anyone who has been following your run on this 13th season of Project Runway knows that you took your final bow as a contestant on the episode just before the finale.
