Everybody Run

Before she became famous for her ruthless and hilarious Madonna mockumentary, Medusa: Dare to be Truthful ("I've made so much money, my money has money now"), funny lady Julie Brown was an MTV staple thanks to "The Homecoming Queen's Got a Gun," her 1984 Valley Girl-meets-Scarface-meets-Citizen Kane single about a high school girl who goes on a senseless shooting spree. In the video's cliffhanger, she whispers, "I did it for Johnny." But who was Johnny? Was he a sled, like Rosebud? Was she just having a bad period? Nearly 30 years later, the singer-comedian finally answers your burning questions in Julie Brown's Homecoming Queen's Got a Gun: The Musical, featuring Brown's hit song and other original compositions, as well as familiar '80s tunes reworked with a twist. Drew Droege -- of YouTube's Chloë Sevigny videos -- plays the gun-toting, pink-chiffon-wearing Debbie, while Brown plays the best friend/narrator. If you were a cheerleader or glee club member in high school, take cover.
