There is a REASON we don’t do interviews on Fridays. Yesterday at Homorazzi HQ we (Donovan and I) were pretty rough because of the brand new night in Vancouver LIBERACE (Which is EVERYTHING btw). Thankfully the gorgeous Ivy was also a bit tired so we had a great joke about that.
I asked her about her name, I asked her about Jinkx. And she told me about a great future project for her which I think if FABULOUS! Take a listen and enjoy.
Excuse me while I go hide under my desk.
Lots happened in this episode. Alaska finally won a challenge, we have a possible new showmance, and once again Coco was acting like a FOOL because she’s a big baby!
After last week’s non elimination the queen’s were getting a bit restless with it still being the top 7 but what are you gonna do. We had a nice little confession from Roxxxy saying that she targets Jinkx as a way of lashing out so I’ll give her points for owning up to it, but this episode again seemed to be all about just hating on Jinkx, especially from baby Coco. We’re going to get to that later, we gotta talk about what happened during the main challenge.
After a mini challenge with a bunch of Andrew Christian models (Memory with underwear) the main challenge was revealed: Create your own fragrance, design the bottle and shoot a commercial. I was definitely into it. It was going to be interesting to see who could pull it out creatively. As the work starts I noticed a little spark between Ivy and Jinkx which was really cute! We later find out that Jinkx has a total crush on Ivy…CAN YOU IMAGINE! A LOVE CONNECTION ON DRAG RACE! I AM INTO IT DARLING!
We’re not even done Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, but sexy drag queens… start your engines! Logo has just announced the hunt for Season 6‘s batch of queens that will battle it out for the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar.
Producers ask, “Do you have more Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent than you can handle? Are you gagging for a chance to prance down the runway in front of RuPaul?” Then get cracking on your audition tapes for next season! The casting call ends on April 9, 2013 so that doesn’t leave very much time…so don’t f*ck it up.
Check out RuPaul’s announcement of the Season 6 casting call below.
I LOVED THIS EPISODE! It was SO funny and it was such a good idea for the “live audience” episode that they do once a season usually. It was also the reading challenge which I’m happy to say this season was amazing. Everyone did a good job and Alaska outshone them all. It was also the episode where Alaska separated herself from Ro-Laska-Tox which was the little girl group of Roxxxy, Alaska ans Detox. Last week Michelle made it clear that cliques weren’t the way to go so she decided to go Beyonce on their ass, and she won a mini challenge.
However the mini challenge doesn’t really mean anything because the MAIN CHALLENGE is what’s important. The challenge this week was the RuPaul Roast! YES! They all had to come up with jokes to roast RuPaul, all the judges and each other. This was going to be a very important challenge because if you can’t read a bitch as a drag queen, what are you doing in drag? (Ok so it’s not THAT important, but it is a good skill to have).
The jolly miss Jade Jolie.
Honestly she was SUCH a treat to speak with this morning, I even got word from Patrick that it was the easiest most clear interview to edit haha!
Jade took time out this morning to talk about her experience on the show, as we know she was safe pretty much the entire time except obviously this last episode. WE talked about her friendship with Coco, the little drama with Alyssa and all the rainbows and glitter in the UNIVERSE!
I mean Amen.
My review of RuPaul’s Drag Race this week is going to be a bit brisk because I just came back from Emerald City Comic Con and I am WIPED (a nerd alert is coming this week about it). What did we learn in this week’s episode? Most drag queen’s can’t sing, Detox is 90% silicone & Coco Montrese wants to have her cake and eat it too!
This week’s mini challenge was make up in the dark which was hysterical. Detox won because her make-up is essentially paint by numbers flawless. So she got to choose the 3 teams for the singing challenge. She obviously chose Roxxxy and Alaska for her team, Ivy Jinkx and Jade Jolie were together and Coco and Alyssa were paired up. The main challenge was a “We are the world” style number called Can I get an Amen? There were challenged with writing a verse, and coming out with an 80′s style look for the live music video.
After the result of this week’s Snatch Game episode on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5, this morning I chatted with Lineysha Sparz about her experience on the show, what she might have done differently, and of course what’s next for her.
Normally Tommy is our in-house drag diva extraordinaire asking the questions, but since he wasn’t able to make the interview today, I subbed in. That being said, if you haven’t checked out his recap from the episode, you can do so here.
Find out who she saw as her biggest competition, her closest friends, and whether she would have done anything differently in the Snatch Game (ie. choose a different person). Enjoy!
Racers, we need to take a moment. There was something so unbelievable shocking that happened on tonight’s episode that I was almost offended. For a competition full of the best drag queens in the country to not know who Little Edie was is unforgivable. A little history lesson before we start shall we?
Little Edie was the cousin of Jackie O. Her and her mother Big Edie lived in a mansion called Grey Gardens and were very recluse. They became GAY ICONS and CULT ICONS after their documentary Grey Gardens was released. Jackie O even took notice of this and helped them with the mansion because of the controversial way they lived. If you haven’t seen Grey Gardens its a MUST and I highly recommend that you watch it this week. For Jinkx Monsoon to do Little Edie PERFECTLY (and I mean perfectly, the accent, the little quips, the american flag, the pate, the headdress EVERYTHING was flawless) was absolutely beyond. It was on another level and will for me be the best Snatch Game contestant. She shined even more because this season’s Snatch Game was sub par. Did everyone just phone it in this challenge? I thought these queens were pros, but there was absolutely no excuse for what we saw on the show tonight. Now it’s time to talk about what happened tonight.
