Friday nights on VH1
SCROLL DOWN FOR WEEKLY UPDATES
Y’all know that I am Really Into drag queens. I LIVE for RuPaul’s Drag Race & you should too! These queens are creative, funny as hell, stunningly beautiful, dedicated to their art form, unique & overall hero material.
Drag Race historically aired on Logo, but this year it’s switching to VH1. I love that because I remember watching RuPaul’s talk show on VH1. It’s where I was first introduced to a male quintet named the Backstreet Boys.
RuPaul is such a trailblazer. I remember watching Ru’s talk show as a 13 year old & not really knowing what to make of her. She was over the top, so damned tall, walked in heels like a goddess, inappropriate at times & just hilarious & genuine. Ru’s motto has always been to be true to yourself & I just love that.
RuPaul’s Drag Race has introduced me to some of my favorite queens, Alaska, Roxxxy Andrews, Detox, Katya Zamolodchikova, Sharon Needles, Jinkx Monsoon, Bianca Del Rio & Bob the Drag Queen. The costumes, the make-up, the creativity these queens possess is breathtaking. I can’t get enough. Did you see Phi Phi O’Hara’s Instagram account last year? She did a new look every single day for an entire year & it was amazing!
It seems like we’ve got some pretty big names this season & I can’t wait. RuPaul is fresh off an Emmy win & I’m looking for this to be the best season yet. My Friday nights are booked & let’s spill the tea as this season progresses.
The first episode is tonight & it’s with none other than Lady Gaga! A crossover of two of my favorite things in the world!
