RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9 not only premieres on a new night, but on a new network as well. The long-running drag competition moves from LOGO to sister station VH1, Friday March 24. While fans are looking forward to a new season, they’re not too happy about the Friday night timeslot. Especially, those who hold special RPDR nights at clubs. Good luck trying to get a venue to give up a lucrative Friday night for a screening.
RuPaul Charles stopped by Good Morning America yesterday to begin promotion. The 56-year-old personality talked about his Emmy win and also the highly-anticipated appearance of Lady Gaga on the Season 9 premiere. Later in the evening, he surprised folks at a “Meet The Queens” event held in New York City. Not only did he talk to the crowd, but he shared a special preview of the S9 premiere episode.
The short preview shows Mother Monster entering the room. However, the queens just think she’s another competitor and label her as the new Derrick Barry of the season. I wonder how long it’ll take before they realize she’s the real thing. Their reactions are going to be epic. Check out Ru’s GMA interview below, along with the special preview.
