'RuPaul's Drag Race' Recap: The Mask


What else could we have titled this recap?

Our recap of tonight's episode of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' is going to be slightly different than previous ones, because we simply need to talk about THAT moment.....

And THAT elimination.

Over the course of the season, Valentina has been pretty untouchable when it comes to the runway, but the dearly loved queen found herself in quite the predicament tonight.

Following a lacklustre challenge alongside Nina, the two queens found themselves in the bottom two (3rd time for Nina, Val's 1st). Bringing their Club Kid Couture to the runway, Valentina decided it would be a good idea to wear a mask for the runway (while others did as well).....and thought she'd be able to wear it for the lip sync.

Mama Ru wasn't having any of it though.

RuPaul actually stopped the lip sync, asking Valentina to remove the mask. Over the course of the past week, there have been rumors as to what really happened during this moment. Some rumors arose saying the reason Valentina didn't want to remove the mask was because she hadn't put on any makeup. Another rumor was because she could have hidden the fact she didn't know the lip sync song.

We got our answer tonight, and it hurt. It hurt A LOT.

Based on their TV pilot challenges, Valentina and Nina (rightfully) found themselves in the bottom two and up for elimination. It also played to the rumors when Valentina took the runway in her matador-esque look wearing a bedazzled mask.

The two began to square off to Ariana Grande's 'Greedy', but it didn't take long for Ru to put a stop to it, and for the first time, called the lip sync to a HALT.

She told Valentina to remove the mask, to which the queen responded that she'd rather leave it on. That didn't sit well, and she informed her she needed to remove it.

Well, it didn't matter unfortunately, because Valentina simply didn't know her words, and Ru sent her home.

This elimination HURTS. It hurts A LOT.

But....until next week.

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 …

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…

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…
