Trixie Mattel Dreams of the Beach With Acoustic ‘Malibu’ Performance at Billboard’s Pride Summit

This summer, people everywhere are stuck inside and wishing that they could get out and enjoy the sunshine. Lucky for them, Trixie Mattel is here to give them a taste of what they’re looking for.

The RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 winner appeared during Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter’s Pride Summit for a special performance, sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, of her song “Malibu.”

Dressed in a rainbow vinyl jacket and her classic big blonde hair, Mattel appeared on screen with just an acoustic guitar and a microphone, giving fans a taste of the beach-rock that they’ve been missing out on this summer. “Take me to the ocean blue/ I don’t care, any beach will do with you,” she sang. “Singing every song we know/ In your transistor radio.”

The sun-soaked song comes off of Mattel’s latest album Barbara, where the star explored her plugged-in, minivan-rock sound. “I’ve done folk music; I’m ready to revert here,” she told Billboard upon the album’s release. “The Trixie we see on this record – Trixie in a swimsuit and pumps – was my original idea of Trixie.”
