Dolly Parton Offered RuPaul Some Light Reading
What more is there to say about the woman who is arguably our greatest living American that hasn’t already been said? Dolly Parton‘s talented— duh. Hard-working— without a doubt. Stunning to behold— you bet your sweet ass. Generous and kind to everyone she meets— of course, but if your face is busted, she’s gonna let you know. And that’s just what she did, in the Dollyiest possible way, to RuPaul while he was interviewing her over Zoom for Marie Claire. Don’t fuck with Dolly, she hasn’t given away 150 million books to children without knowing her way around the mother-fucking library, okurrr. And Dolly’s library opens at 3:00 AM every damn day and stays open LATE.
Lady Red Couture, Legendary Drag Queen, Has Died
It’s been a hell of a weekend for losses––and the sadness just keeps coming. Another legend has sashayed away up to that giant runway in the sky. Yesterday, Lady Red Couture, legendary queen and co-host of the YouTube drag-themed chat show, “Hey Qween”, died. She was only 43.
The Winner Of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Has Been Crowned
Fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race have put up with a lot during season 12––and I’m not just talking about THAT one queen who nearly ruined everything by serving rotted, stanky CATfish and got her ass edited out of the show. There was also that mostly sloppy Snatch Game that got some people hot and bothered––oh, and then there was Chaka Kahn not knowing what a merkin (or, frankly, what Drag Race) is. Well it’s all over now, and RuPaul has chosen our next queen––just in time for the premiere of Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars on June 5th (oh please, what else are you gonna watch during quarantine?)
The Cast Of Season 5 Of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” Has Been Ruvealed
RuPaul Charles is many things: drag queen, actor, producer, podcaster, rancher, fracker, singer, activist (most of the time), and, above all else, hustler. That’s why there are roughly twelve-thousand RuPaul’s Drag Race projects in the works at all times. This means that even a longtime Drag Race fan like myself is getting fatigued. I haven’t bothered with Secret Celebrity Drag Race, because I spied only one real celebrity (Vanessa Williams), and the weed I’m currently smoking isn’t strong enough to make that shit interesting. But I definitely perked up today when VH1 ruvealed the cast and release date (June 5) for All Stars 5. Yes, the names were leaked months ago, but my brain forgot, so it was like brand new information. And even at its worst, an All Stars season is pretty damn entertaining. I mean, they’re All Stars, for chrissake. They’re a cut above regular season riff-raff.
Drag Queen Cara Melle Caught Heat For Pushing A Lady Off Her Stage
I’m not going to lie to you, I laughed the first, second, and third time I watched drag queen Cara Melle push a lady off her “stage” (it looked like the floor of a restaurant during a drag brunch, which made it even funnier) while prancing around to All I Want For Christmas Is You, because I am a horrible person. A better person would have been shocked and dismayed, and many better people were just that. After the clip of Cara shoving the overly enthusiastic patron into a crowd of gagged onlookers went viral, many people let her know that while shoulder pads and helmet hair are de riguour, drag is most certainly not a contact sport.
Farrah Moan Has Accused Ariana Grande Of Ripping Off The Drag Community
Ariana Grande recently filed a $10 million lawsuit against almost-bankrupt Forever 21 for allegedly stealing several looks from her video 7 Rings. Ariana claimed in the lawsuit that she had met with Forever 21 to discuss a collaboration, and when Forever 21 didn’t want to pony up enough cash, they turned around and just flat-out stole her looks anyway. Well, RuPaul’s Drag Race alumni Farrah Moan claims that Forever 21 might not be the only one guilty of stealing looks here.
