It’s ALMOST TIME! January is less than 2 months away and RuPaul’s Drag Race 4 is right around the corner. In truRU fashion, they released a teaser picture. Well it’s the pictures of the queens in “boy form”. I recognized only one for sure, but after doing some digging for about 15 minutes on the good old Facebook, I found out some of the others:
Chad Michaels, Alisa Summers, The Princess, Sharon Needles, Eva Styles, Phi Phi O’hara, and Latrice Royale… am I right or am I wrong? TELL ME IF YOU KNOW!
Anyway, click below to see the picture. Who do you recognize?
Hey squirrels. Everyone’s favorite female illusionist is back. With the premiere of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 4 only a few months way, January 2012 to be exact, the folks over at Logo have started their promotion onslaught. Not only do we get our very first teaser for the upcoming season, but we also learn a few of the celebrities dropping by to show off their judging skills.
As you can see in the picture above, Mercedes née Amber Riley will grace us with her presence for an episode. Considering one of her upcoming storylines on “Glee“, she’ll be right at home with drag queens. Mercedes will be given a younger brother who has an affinity for cross-dressing. Her brother will be played by “The Glee Project” runner-up, Alex Newell. “Alex seems so liberated when he’s in drag,” Amber says. “It would be great for younger Glee fans to see a character like that.” While on the reality set, Riley confessed she sneaked backstage to catch a glimpse of some of the contestants get ready. Here’s what she said about her guest judging gig:
“I was so excited to do this I started screaming. I am a very big RuPaul fan. She’s absolutely gorge. I just had to make sure my hair and makeup were done right if I was in front of drag queens!”
Well well well, not very becoming of America’s Sweetheart and The Next Drag Superstar now is it?
This morning I awoke to read the news that Season 2 RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Tyra “The Other Tyra” Sanchez got busted, arrested and locked up for marijuana possession while driving a car in the lovely state of Georgia. PEACHY!
Mini Ru Pt.2 had a friend with her and they were busted for less than an ounce of weed on them. But here’s the kicker, they were first pulled over for having illegal tinted windows, and the cop could smell raw weed in the car, searched, found it and booked em. HA!
Another queen from RuPaul’s Drag Race has entered the music world. Season 3 winner, Raja just introduced her debut music video for her single, “Diamond Crowned Princess“. The video was directed by Austin Young and features a cameo by former Drag contestant, Raven.
“Follow me, follow me, I’m a diamond crowned queen. Come with me, to my pretty, pretty palace,” are the lyrics of the chorus. My favorite lyrics from the song though, go as follows: “Gonna lick on your trigger, every inch will make you quiver.” Dirty and hot. The video visuals are Gaga meets Marilyn Manson meets Peter Breeze. We see many different looks, including most noticably, Raja as a man versus Raja as a queen.
Our own Tommy couldn’t get enough of these queens after our of our Homorazzi elimination interviews this past season, because he’s bringing Raja here to Vancouver to perform at Pride this summer! Check out her debut video below for a taste of what is to come from the Season 3 winner… and let me know what you think!
You got She-Mail! RuPaul is back for to cast Season 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race! She doesn’t take a breath does she?!
The last season of RuPaul’s Drag Race was definitely my favorite! They had some very entertaining queens, fantastic challenges and amazing guest stars, including LaToya Jackson, Vanessa Williams, and Johnny Weir to name but a few. There were also quite a few twists this past season, two involving bringing back eliminated contestants and allowing them to reenter the game. Who knows what tricks she’ll have up her sleeve this year!
We definitely enjoyed chatting with RuPaul, Michelle Visage, and all of the drag queens, including most recently Raja, the winner of Season 3. We definitely can’t wait to meet next season’s contestants! If you’ve got what it takes, prove it by entering the competition!
To enter, go to www.rdrcasting.com. Check out RuPaul’s announcement below, with her new single “Glamazon,” shamelessly playing the background.
Well, it’s here. After one incredible season of RPDR we have reached the finale…and not a moment too soon. This year we had 3 extra weeks added in! 1. Because of a 13th contestant. 2. Because of a non elimination episode. 3. Because Carmen was brought back. OOOO CHILD RuPaul really knows how to milk her cash cow am I right?
In one of the worst kept secrets in RuPaul’s Drag Race history RAJA was crowned the winner, but we had a bunch of stuff to get through before she got her crown so let’s get to it right?
The final challenge to Raja, Manila and Alexis was presented to the three by Michelle Visage, who looked great last night. She presented the three with their final challenge, appearing in a music video with RuPaul for her new single “Champion” which we’ve got at the bottom of this post. The queen were going to represent Greek Goddesses in all their glory, Greek athletes, and have a sexy time dance with one of the pit crew. When they showed up to rehearsal they were greeted by their choreographer Borat, who showed them what they had to do. Raja and Manila were having a bit of trouble with the posing and steps, but in the end everything ended up working out fine. The girls were doing all the work while Ru just stood on her higher podium…I just said a mouthful there didn’t I?
We are mere days away from learning who RuPaul crowns as the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 3. Can you believe it? After a marathon season, I never thought this day would arrive. So what can we expect from the finale? Well, according to new judge Michelle Visage… a lot. We were lucky enough to score a good old fashioned gossip session with the opinionated panelist.
Just like her persona on television, this woman doesn’t hold back. She’s as funny as she is on the show. In the edited version of our interview, I asked her thoughts on the Final 3 and what she thought their strengths and weaknesses were. In addition, I also asked her which other queens besides Carmen Carrera the judges debated on bringing back into the competition. In between all the questioning, she provided a few tidbits on the reunion and the finale. Listen to the short clip to eavesdrop on our girl talk. Be forewarned, I gush a little bit about her girl group popstar days. No joking, I really was a fan of Seduction and their dance singles. Oh, the memories.
Last night, Logo aired the fourth annual NewNowNext Awards in glittery fashion. James Van Der Beek hosted the irreverent awards show honoring everything fantastical in pop culture and tomorrow’s next big things. This year the awards returned back to Los Angeles but at a new venue- the Avalon. I’ve been to the venue numerous times, mostly to dance my butt off at Tigerheat. It was definitely odd to go during daylight at last Thursday’s taping to cover the red carpet and interview this years nominees and presenters. Special shout out goes to Logo for giving Alex and I such a great spot on the red carpet.
In addition to the regular award categories, this year’s ceremony honored Lady Gaga with the “Always Next, Forever Now Award“. Definitely fitting since, the Fame Monster made her television debut on the NewNowNext Awards years ago. In between awards, the raucous crowd were entertained by wicked performances by Robyn, Panic! at the Disco, Oh Land and Wynter Gordon. The show also featured presenters including by Adam Lambert, Paula Abdul, Carmen Electra, Joey McIntyre (New Kids on the Block), A.J. McLean (Backstreet Boys), Jonathan Knight (New Kids on the Block), Brittany Snow (“Harry’s Law”), Busy Phillips (“Cougar Town”), Perez Hilton, Aubrey O’Day (“All About Aubrey”), Keegan Allen and Torry DeVitto (“Pretty Little Liars”), RuPaul, George Kotsiopolous (“Fashion Police”), Kim Coles, Lisa Lampanelli, Sara Rue (“Shedding for the Wedding”), Gretchen Rossi (“The Real Housewives of Orange County”), Lisa Vanderpump (“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”) and Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge (“The Fabulous Beekman Boys”). Special appearances from the evening included: Johnny Weir, RuPaul, guest DJ and recording artists Neon Hitch, the queens of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Jessica & Hunter and Drew Droege (“Chloe”).
