'RuPaul's Drag Race': Roller Skating Realness



That runway is officially in my top 3 ever!!!

Don't ask me the other two, I'd have to put thought into it.

Last night, 'RuPaul's Drag Race' set the bar even higher for outrageous runway moments, and of course, lip sync for you life battles.

Of course, we had to address right away who the person was that RuPaul called at the conclusion of last weeks episode. After eliminating both Dax and Laila, Ru brought Naysha back for a second chance.

The main challenge was an acting challenge, featuring the queens delivering a HILARIOUS spoof of 'Empire', called 'RuCo's Empire'. Most of the ladies brought their A game to the challenge with notable standouts Bob the Drag Queen (improvisations were ON POINT), Thorgy, Kim Chi, and Chi Chi Devayne.

And the others?

Well, here's where my disagreement with the bottom two is what it is.

Derrick absolutely flopped in this challenge and should have been in the bottom two with Cynthia. Even though Robbie flubbed his words, he still managed to show character behind the role he was playing.

The producers of the show clearly knew about Robbie's background in roller skates, so wanted to make the LSFYL interesting, thus putting him against Cynthia. We all knew once it started, that Robbie was going to send Cynthia packing.

Runway critiques:

Bob - That silver/alien type outfit was on point, and I loved it
Thorgy - Serving Olivia Newton-John realness!
Cynthia - Those......shorts.....I have no other words. 
Derrick - Michelle's critique of Derrick is seemingly starting to affect the Britney impersonator, and I agree. The outfit needed to be stronger. 
Ch Chi - LOVED the color. LOVE the hair. Chi Chi is starting to emerge for me
Kim - The outfit was a mess, and I'm surprised Kim didn't fall
Acid Betty - That outfit was a mess and a half. I need more. 
Naysha - Surprised by Naysha in the acting challenge, and the outfit was fine. 
Naomi - I need another outfit that doesn't show off her legs. Gown anyone? 

And can we TALK about our Glamazon Ru rolling out onto the main stage!?

Madonna Delivers Brutal Truth During Billboard Honor

UPDATED WITH FULL VIDEO:


 I've previously spoken out about this, but need to say more.

Madonna was honored by Billboard as Woman of the Year at last nights event, and when she took the stage....

She delivered a speech that EVERYONE needs to hear!!

Speaking out on the ageism, sexism, and controversy surrounding her legendary career, the Queen of Pop held nothing back.

Including some tears.

If this speech ever needed to be delivered, it was now.

Thank you Madonna.

Read her entire speech below:

"I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer," Madonna said. "Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse."

Recalling her life as a teenager when she first moved to New York: 

"People were dying of AIDS everywhere. It wasn’t safe to be gay, it wasn’t cool to be associated with the gay community," Madonna recalled. "It was …

PopGoesTheArts Is BACK!!!!

Did you miss me?

Well, yours truly knew he wasn't going to be able to stay away forever......

After just over 3 months, I've gotten the itch to start writing again.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be dipping my toes back into my blog and of course, continuing to express my undying love of Britney Spears.



Truthfully, these past few months have given me time to reflect on what I want to get out of writing this blog again. It's not about quantity of posts, but the quality of what I'm writing. I don't watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians, so why write about it?

I need to focus my blog on writing about the things I love. This will no longer be a stream of daily posts about anything and everything Hollywood. Instead, this will be focused on what I find interesting and love.

I mean, 'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3 is fast approaching......so obviously I'll be writing about that. Awards season is in full swing, so of course that's going to be discu…

'Big Little Lies' Officially Returning For Season 2

And shockingly, yours truly isn't jumping up and down for joy.

I'll get to that.

HBO has announced that this years breakout hit 'Big Little Lies' starring Nicole Kidman & Reese Witherspoon, will be returning for a 2nd season.

At this years Emmy Awards, the show took home Outstanding Limited Series, Outstanding Lead Actress (Kidman), Outstanding Supporting Actor (Alexander Skarsgard), Outstanding Supporting Actress (Laura Dern) and Outstanding Directing (Jean-Marc Vallee).

As of right now, only Witherspoon and Kidman are confirmed to return, although reports are saying most of the cast will return as well.

Now, here comes my complaining.

This series was perfectly executed, featured stunning performances from everyone (okay, even Shailene Woodley was FINE),  and delivered an outstanding (at what we thought at the time) finale.

So.......why do we need to possibly ruin everything with a 2nd season?!

That's not to say that it will be awful, but when something is th…

My Reaction To Golden Globe Nominations

It's that time of the year again:

AWARDS SEASON!!!

The 75h Golden Globe Awards were announced yesterday, and as per every other year....

It was kind of bananas.

While most of the acting categories seemed to get things right (more on that shortly), there is quite a bit of backlash concerning the Best Director category.

The category went to all men:

Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri), Guillermo Del Toro (Shape of Water), Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Ridley Scott (All The Money in the World) and Steven Spielberg (The Post).

First off, we would argue that Jordan Peele should have been nominated for 'Get Out'. Hands down, that right there is a snub.

But what about Patty Jenkins for 'Wonder Woman'? Where's Great Gerwig for 'Lady Bird'? Where the HELL is Dee Rees for Netflix's 'Mudbound'??

Oh, that's right. They're all WOMEN.

Not a single woman was nominated for Best Director at this years Globes. What happens come …

Jimmy Kimmel Returns To Late Night......With A Very Special Guest!!

Jimmy Kimmel continues to use his platform for AMAZING things.....

And how freakin' adorable is Billy!?

Last week, Jimmy Kimmel took the week off to be with his family, while his son Billy underwent his 2nd open heart surgery. Chris Pratt, Tracee Ellis-Ross, Neil Patrick Harris and Melissa McCarthy filled in for the host while he was off.

Jimmy didn't waste any time going back to pushing for healthcare, only this time there was a tad bit of a distraction as we couldn't take our eyes off of Billy.
