'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3: Your Champion Is.....


Well.......

That happened.

Tonight marked the end of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3, and yours truly has quite a bit to say.....

It's not exactly going to be positive.

In a finale that saw Trixie Mattel crowned champion, it took us awhile to get there. With plenty of drama. And some bullshit new format courtesy of Mama Ru.

After a bit of a rocky & uneven season that saw BenDelaCreme bow out after being the clear front runner for the crown, the final 4 of Shangela, Bebe Zahara Benet, Kennedy Davenport, and Trixie Mattel battled it out.

The queens took part in an epic music video extravaganza set to RuPaul's 'Kitty Girl', but that wasn't the big shocker of the episode.

RuPaul revealed that the eliminated queens would return for one final time, judging the final 4 and making the decision as to WHO would make top 2.

There lies our issue.

Let's be real:

Along with Dela, Shangela was the front runner this season, and while Trixie had the fan base, she suffered on the show, not performing to the standard that some expected. This includes yours truly. This new format with the eliminated queens coming back to make final judgment hurts the namesake of the series. I would like to think Ru would have included Shangela in the top 2 along with Trixie.

But instead, Shangela doesn't even MAKE top 2.


This is why the format was flawed.

Watching the eliminated queens interact with them was painful, as it really showed that this wasn't about the competition at all. It was a popularity contest. Was there any ever doubt that Chi Chi was going to pick Kennedy?

Of course not.

Here's the tea ladies and gays:

This season wasn't great. It was flawed. But congrats to Trixie Mattel.

The season will however though, be remembered for Shangela & Dela's exit.

SEASON 10 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 …

WHOA! Alanis Morissette Is Unrecognizable With New Haircut!!

Alanis Morissette stepped out at a showing of 'Dear Evan Hansen' in New York City this past Wednesday night, and shocked those in attendance.

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:




Ariana Grande Makes Her Flawless Return With 'No Tears Left To Cry'!!

Okay, so yours truly has been trying to figure out how to put this into words, and here we go.

After what has seemed like an eternity, pop princess Ariana Grande has returned to our lives with new music, and we couldn't be more grateful.

With all of the hype behind her new single 'No Tears Left To Cry', as well as the subsequent teasers, we were expecting a powerhouse ballad from the singer.

While we get stellar vocals (THAT PRE-CHORUS!!) the song is nothing like what I expected as the first track off of her upcoming 4th studio album (reportedly due out June 15th).

The bouncy, synthetic track flows effortlessly from Grande and it's giving us everything we didn't know we needed!

Check out the song and accompanying 'Inception' like video below:


Janelle Monae Comes Out

I absolutely love this woman.

While we all await for Janelle Monae to release her highly anticipated brand new album 'Dirty Computer', the singer/actress sat down with Rolling Stone magazine.

And gave us a very revealing interview.

While rumors have surrounded the 32 year old for months, she finally takes that step in confirming:

"Being a queer black woman in America,"

"someone who has been in relationships with both men and women - I consider myself to be a free-ass motherfucker." Janelle, who had previously identified as bisexual, now clarifies where she stands:

"but then later I read about pansexuality and was like, 'Oh, these are things that I identify with too.' I'm open to learning more about who I am."

While Janelle isn't open to discussing her dating life, it's rumored she's in a relationship with 'Thor: Ragnarok' actress Tessa Thompson, who appears in the music video of Janelle's single 'PYNK'.
