Y’all remember last week when we alerted you to the awesome that is Jenny Lewis‘s new video for “One Of The Guys” (right here) featuring some of the best drag seen outside of RuPaul’s race?. Well, this week we’ve found ourselves a little bit inspired by all this gender-bending and for today’s Hump Day, we’re gonna divert you into some of our favorite musical moments where the dudes looked like ladies and ladies… you get where we’re going with this… so come on and take the jump!
