We’re back with Episode 2, racers! This week on RuPaul’s Drag Race we saw a lot of padding, a lot of backstory (in the untucked) and my drag race boyfriend BillyB was back on the judges table. After Jiggly did the ceremonial wiping of the mirror and after a read between the lines video message from Ru, we find out that the mini challenge is about padding that ass till you can’t pad it no more. Sharon Needles gave us a big tip by the way. When making your padding, shape it like Africa…fitting no?
Chad Michaels (yeay), Phi Phi Ohara (double yeay) and Willam were chosen as the winners and team captains for the next challenge, which is one of the best I’ve seen on the show. WRESTLING CHALLENGE! Three teams of four were made up, and those teams were split into Faces and Heels – The Good and the Bad team respectively. Madame LeQueer starting making excuses and I started rolling my eyes. I don’t get the whole excuses thing I really REALLY don’t, but when it came to show time she was amazing. Madame LaQueer and Chad took on Sharon Needles and Milan and the show was fabulous. Latrice Royale (triple yeay) was paired with Kenya and they took on Phi Phi and Lashauwn who really didn’t impress this week, although everyone else in the group did fabulous. Willam was paired with Dida and they took on Princess and Jiggly, this group was the worst. Anyone else notice that Jiggly is ONLY wearing her flat converse knee highs every week? I mean come on throw a heel on, you’re a drag queen.
HELLLLLLLOOOOOO RACERS! Welcome back to a brand new year, a brand new season, and brand new queens on RuPaul’s Drag Race (which I will only refer to as RPDR online). Thirteen new queens are chosen, Ru’s budget is much higher and we’ve got some fabulous talent. Patrick gave you a bit of a rundown and I’m gonna give you my top queens. After seeing the first episode, my snap judgements were pretty much on point and I’ve got my Top 4 this season. Let’s get to it.
Queen’s entrance time! One by one they start filling in and of course want to make the biggest entrance possible. My favorites are already standing out but it’s not until the very LAST two that we see two of the biggest stars shine. Second to last is SHARON NEEDLES, who after this episode has already set herself WAY ahead of the pack as the most entertaining (and IMHO, one of if not THE best contestant on this show ever) walks into the workroom looking like a spooky witch and a MAJOR breath of fresh air just swept through the room. Not since Nina has there been a contestant that excited me this much. Following Sharon was LATRICE ROYALE who came painted to the nines and a personality that blew UP that workroom. LOVE her. LOVE LOVE LOVE her. After the entrances, Ru comes onto the screen welcoming everyone and telling them they are competing for a bunch of prize and 100k! 100K!!!! I wonder how season 1 winner is feeling only getting 0.65 cents.
We’re less than a week away from RuPaul’s Drag Race premiere, but we’ve got an amazing premiere from one of it’s stars. Manila Luzon just dropped her video for her single, “Hot Couture“.
As is customary with almost every single reality star, after their first season on air, a vanity single is soon to follow. Some are ok, some are absolutely terrible (Who gon check me boo much?) and once in a while you’ll have one that is actually pretty good. Hot Couture is one of those songs, and the video is fabulous. With every Drag Race star releasing a single almost every single month, this one definitely stands strong as the best video release to date.
Scenes of Manila getting done up, rocking different looks and even doing a little choreography pepper this video, but the best part about it is the story of the little boy who I’m assuming is mini Manila. Putting on some earring, some lipstick and the clincher when mommy walks in and brings him a pair of heels. Absolutely ADORABLE!
Special shout out to the diva with the beard and full face, I’m going to bite that look I promise you. Enjoy HOT COUTURE below!
This coming season of RuPaul’s Drag Race is going to be more about the girls working together and supporting each other, unlike previous years where the girls are fighting and trying to bring each other down. HA! As if! This season looks crazier than ever, as evident by the Season 4 preview and Season 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race Untucked as well. As you know, Untucked is when the queens debrief backstage with a little liquid courage from Absolut Vodka. In the preview for this season’s Untucked, expect the same crazy fights and drama and then some.
My favorite clip from the Untucked preview has one queen saying, “You don’t have any talent. This is a show for talented people, not people that know how to buy f*cking shoes… and you should not be here!” What does Willam calmly said in response to this, with a flip of the hair? “Your tone seems very pointed right now.” LOL.
RuPaul promises that this season will be “over the mother f*cking top” with more sassy stars, more drama, and that for the first time in Drag Race history, they’ll be breaking all the rules. The new season premieres one week from today, on Monday, January 30 on Logo and OUTtv with a 90-minute episode.
We’re only a month away from the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and to hold us over, we’ve been given a “Happy Ru Year” with a little teaser of RuPaul’s “The Beginning” track. The song is from her lastest album, “Glamazon” and is available on Amazon and iTunes.
The lyrics are perfect for New Year’s Eve as she sings in the chorus, “This is the beginning of the rest of your life”. In the verse she sings in the preview below, she sings, “That was then, this is now. Here we go, starting over. You decide, change your mind. miracles happen every day.” Okay, so the lyrics in the verses are tad cheesy, but the chorus is hot (and I’m not just saying that).
Give it a listen below. The song will be featured in the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Mondays on LogoTV (and OUTtv in Canada) starting January 30th.
Not too long ago, we were introduced to the RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 4 Queens and saw the first teaser trailer to the new season. Now, a new juicier trailer has just been revealed that shows all the drama and crazyiness we can expect this season.
This season, the 13 drag divas are battlling it out for $100,000. With that much cash at stake, “wigs will fly, shade will be thrown,” and like every season, “words will be mispronounced”. There looks to be some pretty heated moments between some of the queens as they fight tooth and nail to become America’s Favorite Drag Superstar.
Speaking of stars, we also get a little teaser of the guest judges in this trailer, including Kelly Osbourne, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Elvira, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Amber Riley, and Pamela Anderson who says, “America’s Got Talent has nothing on this show.” Bring on the glamazons! The new season begins Monday, January 30 on Logo. Bring on the Glamazons! Enjoy the trailer below.
At this rate, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” is going to have more wannabe pop stars than Bravo’s “The Housewives of…” franchise. The latest reality star to jump on the novelty single bandwagon is the fierce Sahara Davenport from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 2. I have to give Sahara credit, it’s not bad and the production value of the music video is the best I’ve seen from any of Ru’s guuuuuurls. “Go Off!” is the sophomore release for the female illusionist. It’s a follow-up to her debut single, “Pump With Me“.
For the video, Davenport wanted a cleaner and less busy approach. Of course, we’re referring to a drag queen, so less busy is all relative. Directed by Syuji Honda, the clip features Sahara performing all her signature energetic high kicks as seen during her season of Drag Race. Remember that lip-sync for her life when girlfriend worked it out on pointe. Ferocity. The single has already landed on iTunes Top 200 Dance Singles Chart. A dance remix by DJ Manny Lehman is scheduled to be released later this month.
Check out Sahara (née Antoine Ashley) in her new music video below. It features a cameo from her boyfriend and RuPaul Season 3 alum Manila Luzon. Upcoming Season 4 RuPaul contestant Jiggly Caliente also pops up in the video. Talk about a RuPaul triple threat. These three should just form a girl band and reach for the glittery stars.
Last week, Tommy informed us about the alter-egos for the upcoming fourth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Now, the official list of cast members for the new season is out and we’ve got your first look at the Queens.
In addition to the introduction videos you’ll find below, we’ve also included the sexy new Season 4 trailer that makes this season look like it could be the best yet. In the futuristic clip, RuPaul walks into her control room and with the push of a few buttons like “sickening” and “werk“, she begins the Drag Droid Construction. Once complete she says, “They’re alive!” These queens all look fierce and I can’t wait to see them all in action.
For now, check out the trailer below and then watch the videos of each of the queens to get to know them a little better. Who’s your favorite queen from Season 4? Vote below!
