Not to beat a dead horse, but Bianca tweeted a very interesting interview with Lady Bunny in which she talks about the "she-male/she-mail" controversy. (And yes, Bianca does get a tiny mention in it.)

The faculty of Darg U was announced today. So who is in and who is out? Check out the professors here. What do you guys think?

All I can say is... No Nina or Ongina? :'(

Two weeks ago I went to NYC for my vacation and one of the places that I went to was Boxers NYC! Manila Luzon has been hosting viewing parties for Drag Race there and now Drag U. The bar plays Drag U on three screens and when the comericals come on Manila grabs a microphone and walks through the crowd interviewing people.

Posting from TwitPic so hopefully these show up!

Boxers also serves light fare, pizza and the usuall bar food, so if you are in midtown you can grab a bite to eat before watching DragU with Manila! The staff is really nice and friendly plus they are on Twitter, too!

Drag U: The 'Glamazonious' Professor Raven.

It's a Huff Po interview with Raven about Drag U. Her mother is going to be on Drag U! Apparently Raven's just a fluffy bunny at heart?

I made these then uploaded them for a friend so I figured why not pass the link on to other fans :)

Because of Lady Bunny. Also Nina Flowers and Morgan. But mainly because of this:

"Like you Moxie, I know personally the crippling effects of having a sister which is considered to be the prettier one. My poor sister had to be committed to an insane asylum."

Or maybe because of the big-budget special effects? (somewhat pic-heavy) )

More interviews/reviews, plus RuPaul in 'Zombie Prom, A Musical Comedy'! )

What did everyone else think? Feel free to post your reviews/ thoughts/ creepy rants.

eep!

I've seen a few rumours suggesting that Ru recently got sick while filming season 3 and that they've had to put off production until he recovers -- Here, here and here (warning: the 2nd and 3rd links also contain spoilers for the supposed cast of season 3). Hopefully they're all lies! And if not, please send him healing vibes or whatever superstition works for you.

* RuPaul's Drag U Series Premiere Recap: To judge or not to judge such tragic figures?

* On RuPaul and a narrow view of womanhood ("...to purposefully take three women who are vulnerable and unsure of themselves and put them before a panel of judges to tell them what is wrong with their expression of womanhood is discomfiting and irresponsible.")

*"Rupaul's Drag U" Brings Back the Queens ("... doesn't this contradict what I thought was the central tenet of drag: that "beauty" doesn't have anything to do with gender — that it's about expressing to the world the person you feel inside?")

* Reyna talks about being on Drag U (@ feministsforchoice)

* Here's a pretty picture from the cover of Out Magazine in 1993 )

* And perhaps the sweetest of RuPaul's music videos. 'Back to my Roots' from the same year, all about Black hair: Flat Top Fade? Very Contemporary )

* A ridiculous but oddly funny review of Ru's new book -- The Future Shipwreck Book Club: Life Lessons from the Drag Mother of the World -- Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.

* For Ongina fans: When WOW runner Blake Jacobs gives "RuPaul's Drag Race" fave Ongina a ride to the red carpet for Logo's 2010 NewNowNext Awards, they talk boy troubles, red carpet fashion choices and Ongina's role on "RuPaul's Drag U."  Video here.

[source] --'It’s back to school time, kids!!! Yep, tonight at 9pm ET, get ready for the big premiere of RuPaul’s Drag U on Logo! On the show, Headmaster RuPaul and her team of Drag Professors (your RuPaul’s Drag Race faves including Raven, Jujubee, Ongina, Pandora Boxx, Shannel, Tammie Brown, Nina Flowers and Morgan McMichaels) educate real women on the art of drag and fabulousness. It’s madness. It’s empowering!

To get ready, watch the fun batch of red-carpet interviews that World of Wonder’s newsmaven Damiana Garcia has cooked up with RuPaul and her drag professors. Divine!'

Here's a mildly offensive article about the new show, which starts in July or so (granted, the offensiveness might have more to do with the person writing the article being an idiot rather than the show itself, so I'll withhold judgment for a little longer). Is anyone going to be watching?

text of article below the cut )

Also, for [livejournal.com profile] kapvik who wanted a picture of a drag unicorn: not perfect but I feel like with some work, this (pic is NSFW!) guy might do? (Picture via a lovely friend who probably doesn't want me to put her name here. Thanks, m).

1). Logo's Newnownext blog has a new Q&A with last week's eliminated Queen.

"I knew how pissed off I was that I was eliminated so I was afraid of how I looked leaving the show. I was hoping people would be a little upset but I had no idea it would be like this. Having Entertainment Weekly say that I was their America’s Next Drag Superstar is like getting a reach-around from Taylor Lautner ... Wait, he’s 18 now, isn’t he? I don’t want to get arrested or anything."

Q: If you were to win Miss Congeniality (fans can vote at RuPaulsDragRace.com, on the lower right of the page), how would you celebrate?
A: "I would make out with everyone who voted for me! Hopefully, that doesn’t make people stop voting!"

2). A nice in-depth interview with After Elton discussing the reasons for her elimination, the Raven vs. Tatianna feud, and other things.

"I’d auditioned for Season One, and I didn’t get on. When Season Two came out, I said, “If something doesn’t change in drag, then this is going to be my last year. And it really changed in a major way! The universe is telling me to keep my panties on a little bit longer."

3). News about which Queen from this season will be on Ru's new show, 'RuPaul's Drag U' starting in July on Logo, here.

4). An interview with Sonique, who is is Queen of the Week at Artemis Chase.

5). Morgan didn't impress the judges much with her Pink impersonation but here's some footage of her showing her amazing range, as old-school Annie Lennox, as Culture Club-era Boy George, as Labyrinth-era David Bowie, and weirdly convincing as FrankNFurter, as Kylie Minogue and as Patsy Stone from Absolutely Fabulous.

6). Description for Episode 9, 'Little Black Dress,' (April 12th): The final four queens hit the red carpet and pull out all the stops as they create looks for three separate divalicious award shows.
