There are very few situations in life that are not made slightly worse by the addition of social media influencers: a fancy party; a funeral; standing in line at the DMV; fetching a coffee and a light snack. Yet somehow, RuPaul’s Drag Race is not one of them.
Now in its tenth season, RuPaul’s Drag Race is the perfect example of a competition reality show at the top of its game, armed with a gaggle of queens whose talents are equally matched.
Crazy, right? It’s 2018.
In a recent interview with The Guardian, RuPaul said that he wouldn’t necessarily allow transgender women to compete on Drag Race if they had begun any type of surgical transition, and fans were understandably upset.
All-Stars seasons of Drag Race always up the ante just a little bit—the queens, previously disqualified and sometimes disgraced (Willam), know far better what to expect than less seasoned newbies on regular seasons (exception: Shangela), and so they ideally come even more correct and bring a host of looks that won’t…
Over at the New York Times, an illuminating look at the grunt work of being a working drag queen highlights the struggle and the uncertainty of making a living doing so, even in this recent era of drag’s mainstream popularity.
Listen, you know her. We all do. Perhaps you are her, or were, in some past moment of personal upheaval. She’s the friend who is on a “personal journey.” The friend who is considering quitting her job and going wwoofing in New Zealand for three months to rediscover nature and her own inner strength. The serial…
VH1 has announced that RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars will be returning for a third season—the first on the network—and you know Valentina is going to wear her Miss Congeniality/Fan Favorite sash for her introduction!
There are few things more enjoyable in this world than RuPaul Charles batting away inane questions from well-intentioned reporters and this Hollywood Reporter interview certainly does not disappoint in that arena.
Here’s some fun news for your Friday: RuPaul, the hardest working person in show business, is finally getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
I’m skeptical about everything and so I must admit I side-eyed the fact that RuPaul’s Drag Race, newly shifted over from LGBT network Logo to its Viacom brother Vh1, was given a similar Friday night slot to Amber Rose’s nowhere to be found talk show. How you gonna do cultural icons like that?
The trailer for the ninth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race (bowing March 24 on VH1) just dropped and it promises the fashion, drama, and shade we’ve come to expect from the beloved show (literally, the trailer features title cards advertising those three qualities).
Perhaps today isn’t the day to even acknowledge the existence of disharmony between women, buuuut this happened last night and if I tell you about it tomorrow you’ll be like, “That’s old, who cares.” Also, I think this is just a good performance of saying everything by saying nothing from Naomi Campbell, so look,…
Gather round squirrels, for the trailer for the best show on television has arrived. It’s time to meet the queens of season 9 of Rupaul’s Drag Race!
Around this time of year, we get treated to playlists filled with holiday hip-hop and R&B standards like Run-D.M.C.’s “Christmas in Hollis” and TLC’s “Sleigh Ride,” a perfect Christmas song. Otherwise, it’s boring holiday classics coming at you nonstop in the department store, at the pharmacy, on the radio. Before you…
As Mike Pence, Satan’s meticulously groomed undersecretary, lurches toward what may be the most powerful vice-presidency in history, we have to move to protect what’s ours—our bodies, our civil rights, our ability to put on a giant wig and heavy contour and lip sync to Gloria Estefan in front of RuPaul.
Thursday night’s finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars was bittersweet: while my heart was rooting for Katya, my mind knew Alaska deserved her sweep, though I couldn’t help but wonder what might have happened had Alyssa Edwards not been (WRONGLY) sent home in the penultimate episode.
In today’s Tweet Beat, The Weeknd tries a new look, The West Wing will save us and RuPaul is our greatest philosopher.
RuPaul scored the first Emmy for RuPaul’s Drag Race, winning best reality TV host at Sunday night’s Creative Emmy Awards.
