'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 8 Premiere: First Thoughts


WHAT. A. PREMIERE.

Can we agree?!

Yours truly is going to stray from full recap and just mention some thoughts, some highs, lows, and general feeling towards this new batch of queens.

For starters, let's just say season 7 is an afterthought and season 8 is already KILLING it!!

The girls are already more likable (for the most part), and there is substance rather than having it shoved down our throats. Early favorites for yours truly include Bob the Drag Queen, Acid Betty, Thorgy Thor and Kim Chi. Derrick Barry, while HIGHLY impressing me in the first challenge, needs to give me more (MORE).

Love me a Britney reference.

By the way, that opening challenge with the previous winners was AMAZING, and then the runway with former queens gave me life.

I SEE YOU RAVEN!!!

Now onto how I feel about the others:

I don't particularly see Naomi, Robbie or Cynthia lasting very long, and Chi Chi really surprised me. I don't think she's as naive as we;re being led to believe.

Laila could be a strong contender if she figures out her niche and comes out of her shell.

Dax is the wildcard for me.

Runway verdict:

Dax - Forgettable
Derrick - Cute
Bob - Safe (Right Ru?)
Thorgy - Surprised me, loved the outfit
Acid Betty - Fierce
Kim Chi - Brilliant (minus the walk)
Naysha - Unflattering
Laila - Loved it, but something was missing
Robbie - Tragic
Cynthia - She HAMMERED that challenge
Chi Chi - Somehow turned it out
Naomi - Not feeling the boy chest

This season has a LOT of promise, and I'm looking forward to seeing it all play out.

What did you guys think?

Early favorites?

Stand outs?

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 …

WATCH: Britney Spears SLAYS Her Billboard Music Awards Medley!!

I haven't recovered.......so...bare with me.

Britney Spears took the stage at tonight's Billboard Music Awards with a career-spanning medley, and girl didn't just bring it.....

SHE DESTROYED THE STAGE!!!

Our favorite Louisiana girl brought the house down right out the gate, with a scorching performance that included 'Work Bitch', 'Womanizer' (THAT BREAKDOWN!!!),'I Love Rock N' Roll,  'Breathe On Me', 'Touch of my Hand', 'Slave 4 U' and of course, 'Toxic'.

What has to be mentioned is Brit's energy on stage. Her smile was back, she moved like the pro we all fell in love with, and it was FIRE from start to finish.

Check out the FULL performance below!!





And don't......oh DON'T.....ever forget this moment:




'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3 Recap: Theory Debunked; Season 10 Preview

Well, we're getting closer to crowning our QUEEN!!

It was another week for our beloved crop of queens in 'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3, and this time, they were giving their all in an Andy Warhol themed ball!!

The final 6 were put to the test as they needed to create two separate looks for the runway, and it appeared our beloved Shangie was beginning to show some cracks.

Anybody watch season 3?

That's no surprise.

The queens brought their all to Ru, Michelle Visage, Ross Matthews and guest judges Shay Mitchell, and Titus Burgess, but only 2 queens could reign supreme:

That would be Bebe Zahara Benet and Trixie Mattel!

Trixie definitely needed this win to compete with Shangela./Ben Delacreme while Bebe's win stood out as a shock (more on that later).

The two battled it out to Diana Ross' 'The Boss', and it was no surprise that Bebe captured the spotlight and the win.

Shoutout though to Trixie's testimonial beforehand:

"On season 7, I los…

FIRST Teaser For Fox's 'Rocky Horror Picture Show'

So, I'll leave it to all of you:

Discuss.

'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3 Recap AND Major Season 10 News!!

It's been a huge 24 hours for us 'Drag Race' fans!!!

Not only did we get another installment of 'All Stars 3' last night, but we also got the whopper of a reveal:



Season 10 of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' kicks off March 22nd, AND every episode will be super-sized 90 minute episodes.......

AND Untucked will be airing immediately afterwards!!!

That's 2 WHOLE HOURS of 'Drag Race'!!

You can check out the official teaser below:




So, while we all take that in, yours truly is also here to talk about about last nights episode of 'All Stars 3', because it was a doozy of an episode, and there's a lot to unpack.

While the episode fell victim to being rushed (non-supersized episode), it also gave us some of the first true gags of the season. Following a somewhat underwhelming Snatch Game, Mama Ru revealed that the two winning queens (Shangela and once again Ben Delacreme) EACH won their lip sync and would each have the power to give one of the bott…
