FINALLY! RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars has begun, and in TRUE drag race form it was everything. I don’t know about you, but I can just sit and watch drag race all day everyday. It’s all I want to do. I’m a little disappointed that it’s only 6 episodes, but what are you gonna do. I’ve got lots to say about it so let’s get right into it shall we?
One by one the all stars are introduced, the budget has clearly gotten higher because the beginning intros were fabulous. We are introduced to the 12 queens from the past 4 seasons that have made the cut and are called all stars. My favorite looks as they walked in were Pandora, Manila, Raven, Mimi Imfurst and of course my personal All Star Nina Flowers, who in true Nina form took the cake as the best look. I have to give major props to Mimi because I don’t think many will (even though in my opinion she totally deserves them) but she looked ferosh. She’s got a new look, a new body and her paint was flawless.
We find out right away that the queens are going to paired up (in groups of 2). Oh yes, they both have to be flawless or else they go home. If either queen screws up, they jeopardize the team. Each of the queens had to pick who they wanted to be paired up with, and if there was a match, that was the team. If not they keep going. They only had to go through 2 rounds and only one pairing was assigned by lady Fate. Here are the teams in my personal favourite order…
Last night, RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars contestant JuJubee was performing here in Vancouver at Post Modern nightclub for an event put on by TFD Presents called “Icon“. As you may or may not know, TFD is headed by Homorazzi’s Tommy so while he had her here in the city (for the second time this year), it was the perfect opportunity to talk to her about the upcoming All-Stars season so myself and Tyrell went to check out her performance and capture Tommy’s interview for you.
Chatting outside the club in the historic Gastown neighborhood of Vancouver (ranked the fourth most stylish neighborhood in the world), JuJubee chatted with Tommy about her experience on this upcoming season and what we can expect. As Tommy kept her dry under his um-ber-ella-ella-ella, he asked her about who she got along most with, if she makes the final three, what she thought when Mimi Imfurst walked in the workroom and what’s next for her.
JuJubee also pleads for Americans to vote for Obama and also says what she’d do if she were president. Check out the interview below!
Can you play Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby” using your armpit? Can you “Gangnam Style” better than all your friends? Can you play a guitar using your feet? If you’ve got talent and you want people to marvel at it, this post is up your alley. Starting tonight, Oasis (one of our favorite spots in Vancouver) is holding a weekly talent competition, “Davie’s Got Talent“. Not only will you get your fifteen minutes in the spotlight, but you might also walk away with some cash in your wallet. $200 to be exact.
Hosted by drag superstar Joan-E, each week will host a bevy of celebrity judges. For the inaugural show tonight, they have Real Housewives of Vancouver star Reiko Mackenzie and two of our own cast members, Tommy D and Nic on the judging panel. FIERCE. The festivities start at 8:30 pm every Thursday. Even if you don’t have any talent, drop by Oasis to check out those who do. All interested performers, send in your info to email@example.com. May the force be with you.
Well look at what we have here?
RuPaul’s Drag Race ALL STAR and probably still one of the most popular queens from the franchise has released a music video to her single “Best XXXcessory“. I don’t know what it is about Manila Luzon, but so far I feel like she’s been consistent with all of her post Drag Race releases. Her songs are really cute, very well produced, there’s an underlying theme to all of them (she’s a drag queen, it’s either about makeup, hair, shoes or clothes) and overall, her videos are just always REALLY well done.
As I mentioned, this fall Manila will be joining 11 other past contestants for the Drag Race All Stars 6 episode run. I personally think she has a really strong chance of being in the top 5 for sure. The episodes start airing October 22nd on LOGO (in ths US) and aof course OUTtv (In Canada).
And if you’re in Vancouver, Manila Luzon is coming on October 5! Details are all right here. For now, enjoy her new video below!
Last week, another episode of Homorazzi aired on OUTtv and in case you missed it, it’s now available for you to watch online below.
In had been a month since our last episode so there was lots to catch up on in each of our lives, from summer pride fun to moving nightmares. In terms of gossip and music, we discuss Prince Harry‘s nude scandal, Carly Rae Jepsen‘s new album, the “Gangnam Style” phenomenon, and more. You’ll even learn which panel member found themselves almost naked during a recent drinking game a few weekends ago… You’ll have to watch to find out who that was.
There wasn’t much going on in the way of movies, but definitely lots to talk about in television with so many new shows premiering this fall. We also each talked about a “gay” indulgence we kept secret when we were younger. Overall, there’s lots of fun banter in this one and many different view points on the topics. Enjoy!
Well apparently September 4th was the day of the KAI KAI! If you don’t know what a Kai Kai is…well we’ll get to that in a second.
After the hugely successful gay anthem of 2012 “Let’s Have a Kiki” was released, everyone and their dog has done a cover or a parody of it. I myself am not really one for parodies but after I heard/saw these two I starting to rethink my position on them. The first is done by parody legend Lady Bunny who stars on RuPaul’s Drag U and is the founder of Wigstock.
The second, and my favorite parody probably ever features Drag Race star Willam and one of my absolutely all time FAVORITE queens Rhea Litre. Seriously, if you don’t know Rhea you need to get into it #aweyeah. I have no idea WHY she hasn’t cast on Drag Race yet but this bitch is TALENTED! The pairing of Willam and Rhea is pretty genius I must say. Also featured in this video is Chi Chi Larue and I BELIEVE Hector Xtravaganza…I’m almost 100% certain. Its incredible and definitely my favourite parody of the song.
BUT WHAT IS A KAI KAI you’re still asking…well I’ll let the videos show you. ENJOY!
As you may or may not know, we just had gay pride here in Vancouver a couple weekends ago and were treated to some amazing weather and incredible parties. Some of these parties were put on by our own Tommy who run TFD Presents and we’ve got two pretty fantastic video montages from the events to share with you. It’s “Holy hotness, Batman!” Literally. Although I didn’t make it to these particular events this year, I thoroughly enjoyed the following videos and I’m certain you will too.
The first video is from “Heatwave,” where Tommy had his annual pool party at the Westin Hotel with none other than Jujubee from RuPaul’s Drag Race as the headline performer. On top of the hot guys and bootylicious bums (ie. the one that barly fits in the picture above), Jujubee took the party to another level when her Fergilicious-ness hit the pool deck.
The second video is from the “Gotham City” themed Rapture Party. The costumes, lighting, and performances were all out and all of your favorite heroes & villains were there. As with the first, this video is amazing and set to a remix of Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been“. Enjoy both videos below and be sure to join in the fun next year!
THE BLACK LIGHT TEASER!
OMG I am so FREAKING excited for this “All Stars” mini season to happen I can’t even tell you. Can you believe we’ve had 4 years of Drag Race already? OK so who do you recognize? We know Pandora Boxx is on there but do I also see….
I’m missing some I know, but I KNOW these queens are on there. Who do you recognize? Watch the video and leave your thoughts and/or predictions in the comments!
