"I was inspired to write 'WERK' after attending my first New York City drag/vogue ball," Lily tells Spinner. "I was so overwhelmed by the creativity, attitude, vibe, characters, scene, dancing and music that I came home and wrote 'WERK' within 24 hours. I wanted to capture the excitement I felt at that ball.
When asked about the concept of the video, Lily replies, "Since WERK is more about an attitude inspired from the New York City drag/vogue ball scene than a narrative, we wanted to get that attitude across by highlighting energetic choreography, my 'Houserobics'-inspired costumes and by showcasing some current New York City nightlife characters from the LBGTQ scene."
Cherie Lily's next EP will be released in 2011, and she will also be touring worldwide with husband Andrew W.K.
