RuPaul Does Double Duty

16 December 2008 4 Comments

RuPaul as both Michelle and Barack Obama. Pretty clever.

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!

    When I saw in my sidebar the title of this post and the opening sentences, I was like, “This I have to see.” That’s not a bad makeup job at all. I wish I still had Logo… RuPaul’s new reality show might prove to be an instant camp classic.
