RuPaul Does Double Duty
I’ve actually been wondering about RuPaul lately. His absence from the limelight these past few years has allowed some serious weave and pancake face-makeup violations to go under-criticized, and is probably at least indirectly responsible for the rise of Beyonce. It’s no matter now, though. Without getting into a full-on treatise about drag queens and the pain/pleasure that they have inflicted on me in the past, I’m going to at least try to watch RuPaul’s new show on Logo, Drag Race. It’s a drag queen competition reality show, of course, featuring Santino from Project Runway and all types of celebrity guests as judges. Sounds like part exploitation, part irritation, part total trash, and a whole bunch of “you betta work”s flying back and forth. Or basically the video for “Supermodel” stretched into twelve thirty-minute episodes, which I simply have to post because my girl Lawanda Page is in it. Sashay, Shante!
