All T, All Shade: The Mid-Term Grading Edition

RuPaul's Drag Race

So, two episodes back-to-back of RuPaul's Drag Race, huh? To be honest, I wasn't sure how to handle this, so I'm just going to scrap the recapping thing for this week and take a look at how the queens have done thus far and what they need to change to make it to the finale ... ADORE DELANO PROS Despite a rocky start, Adore is quickly setting herself up as a potential winner. True, she may not be as polished as some of the other queens, MORE

Willam Belli teaches us how to tuck … safely!

Willam Belli

Okay, real talk here: I'm deathly afraid of the idea of tucking. For a very good reason! One time, I accidentally hit my junk on a pole and ended up sending one of my jewels ... you know. Up there. It hurt like hell, and I ended up getting a wicked bad hernia ... it was awful. I got a scar on my stomach and I had to stay in the hospital for a week. Thankfully, we have free healthcare in Canada, but spending a week in a hospital with a catheter up MORE

All T, All Shade: Oh No She Betta Don’t!

RuPaul's Drag Race

Considering how the musical challenges on the show have ranged from punk rock, to cabaret, to 80's charity ballad and to Broadway, I'm a little amazed that RuPaul's Drag Race has never done a rap challenge. Actually, that's not entirely accurate: They did one in the season one finale, and Alexis Mateo pulled out what Michelle Visage called "The Hannah Montana of Hip-Hop", but there's never really been a challenge specifically devoted to rap. So MORE

All T, All Shade: Snatch Game (S6)

RuPaul's Drag Race

Well, that was fast. Usually, the Snatch Game is held off until there are nine queens, but this year RuPaul's Drag Race threw us a curveball a bit early by bringing out the yearly ritual a little early. Not that I'm complaining: Snatch Game tends to be the challenge that separates the frontrunners from the also-rans, and this year is no different, setting up the three queens most likely to make it to the end while forcing two of this season's MORE

All T, All Shade: SHADE: The Rusical

RuPaul's Drag Race

In a lot of ways, Shade: The Rusical was a lot like last season's Black Swan: Why's It Gotta Be Black. Both were challenges that focused heavily on an objective talent. Both were tailor-made for a contestant with a background in that area. And both ended up eating so much of the running time that they had to cut down on the runway portion of the show. Unlike Black Swan though, last night's episode of RuPaul's Drag Race was a little more balanced MORE

All T, All Shade: Scream Queens

RuPaul's Drag Race

At last! After three episodes, we finally see the girls of RuPaul's Drag Race come together as one whole unit! Except ... not really. Last night, the queens had to split into teams to act out horror movies, and what do you know, they ended up reforming the original teams from the last two weeks. Since I have zero will to go through twelve queens and give them all the same notes, I'll just score each team as a collective unit. So which scream MORE

All T, All Shade: RuPaul’s Big Opening (Part 2)

RuPaul's Drag Race

Last week, I said that RuPaul splitting the season premiere of Drag Race in two would end up paying off in the end, and what do you know? It totally delivered. The second half of the premiere was a huge step-up from last week, partly because it upped the pressure on last night's queens and partly because this week had much stronger personalities. Anyway, this week the queens had to put together a festive outfit from random crap in a box. Who was MORE

RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars season two has been confirmed!

RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars

THIS. IS. HAPPENING! I mean, I think we all kinda knew it was happening, but still. HAPPENING! RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE ALL-STARS SEASON TWO! https://twitter.com/dragofficial1/status/437806483632164864 All right, and now's the time when I start making some predictions. Which means I'm pulling out the Drag Race tier list I did last year to make some predictions: DEFINITELY Season 1: Ongina Probably one of the most notable absences from the MORE

All T, All Shade: RuPaul’s Big Opening

RuPaul's Drag Race

The wait is over kittens! ... Well, half over anyway. Yes, the big twist of the RuPaul's Drag Race season six premiere was that there were two of them, and we'd be seeing the second half next week. I regard this the same way I regard the All-Stars teams format: It's a twist on a well-established formula, and as much as the fans complain about it, the pros outweigh the cons: We have a better chance to get to know the queens on a personal level, MORE

RuPaul releases the music video for “Geronimo”

RuPaul "Geronimo"

OH MY GAWD. YOU GUYS. The premiere of RuPaul's Drag Race is here! And her new album, Born Naked (Amazon), is out! It's like it's my Birthday, and my present is getting a blowjob from Thor. Anyway, to celebrate, here's the music video for RuPaul's latest single, "Geronimo" (featuring cutie Lucian Piane) which has twerking guys and a reference to Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. So basically, RuPaul conquered the web today. I, for one, MORE
