Miss Vanjie...Miss Vanjie...Miss Vanjie...Is Back 

Hazel Cills Jan 25, 2019. 1 comments

The Drag Race queens have been announced for Season 11 and I spy with my little eye a familiar face.

Miss Vanjie...Miss Vanjie...Miss Vanjie...has returned to the competition after getting eliminated first last season and milking her 10-second walk-off by somehow coining the season’s most iconic line. The new cast includes a Denver “shock queen,” a doctoral candidate in philosophy, a corporate drop-out, and a professional ballerina. All of that sounds very impressive but I just need them to lip-sync, okay?

I can’t wait to meet them all as soon as I suffer through all the sweat-inducing drama of All Stars!

Netflix's the goop lab Is a Boring Ride Through Wellness Mania Netflix's the goop lab Is a Boring Ride Through Wellness Mania

“How much CBD is Gwyneth Paltrow on?” was a question that came to mind many times while watching Netflix’s new show the goop lab. The show builds on the actor-turned-lifestyle guru’s multi-million dollar empire of the same name, a docuseries of sorts where employees are thrown into Goop-y experiences, like well-groomed lab rats in luxury cashmere. They take shrooms...

Over the past few years, Nora Lum, otherwise known as the viral rapper-turned-actor Awkwafina, has honed her ability to play scrappy scammer characters. She gave one of the only good performances in the mess that was Ocean’s 8, playing a pick-pocketer named Constance alongside professional heist masterminds. In Crazy Rich Asians, she played Peik Lin, a flamboyant socialite who could...

After Grammy chief Deborah Dugan was removed from her position just ten days before the ceremony, employees within the organization told reporters that it might have been a “coup” connected to Dugan trying to reorganize and repair the Recording Academy following accusations of racism and misogyny.

Sasha Velour Wants to Redefine Drag Sasha Velour Wants to Redefine Drag

When most people think of drag, they probably envision a binary transformation. A cisgender man becomes a familiar, exaggerated version of a woman. A cisgender woman is made up to look like a man. Sasha Velour knows that’s only the beginning.“What I want to do with drag is always to create a character that has fluidity and queerness built into...

Some of my earliest memories are of watching MTV footage of Tiffany Darwish on her 1980s mall tour of America in my middle of nowhere Louisiana living room. She sang from balconies to hoards of screaming teenaged fans in far-off, exotic sounding places like Paramus, New Jersey, red mane fluffed to a feathery, ginger halo, collar of her jean jacket...

RuPaul Says Donning Drag at the Met Gala Would Have Made Him Mean RuPaul Says Donning Drag at the Met Gala Would Have Made Him Mean

Now technically, given RuPaul’s oft-stated philosophy that goes, “You’re born naked and the rest is drag,” RuPaul was in drag at this year’s Met Gala for not just wearing his birthday suit. But people, including a caller during Monday night’s Watch What Happens Live, seemed surprised that the world’s most famous drag queen opted for a male-presenting Zaldy suit...

Michelle Visage’s breasts are at least as delightful an element of RuPaul’s Drag Race as Ross Mathews, and next time we see them (Visage’s breasts, not Ross Mathews), they’ll be sans implants.Visage recently told People that she had her implants removed and endured an agonizing-sounding four-week recovery because she worried they might be exacerbating an autoimmune disorder called Hashimoto’s...

Shuga Cain is a RuPaul’s Drag Race anomaly: at 40, she’s the oldest contestant on Season 11, but she’s only been doing drag for two years, having ditched her corporate job in a blaze of glory to immerse herself full time in the nightlife of wigs, contouring, and sequins. In Drag Race’s past, queens over 35 (or even 30,...

On Friday’s season premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars , the bewiggèd host told the contestants that if they could “harness the power” of their “charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent,” they’d “rule the Drag Race hall of fame.” I’m pleased to report that Gia Gunn disregarded RuPaul’s advice entirely, unleashing her cunt on every queen in the workroom.Upon...
