Aja on Their New Album, Box Office: 'My Only Competition Is Myself'

Aja on Their New Album, <i>Box Office</i>: 'My Only Competition Is Myself'


Drag Race alum Aja may be best known for their unbridled opinions, excellent ensembles, and the ability to dip from great heights, but performing in drag for Aja was just a stepping stone towards their larger goal of becoming a rapper.

Last week they dropped their debut rap album, Box Office, and stopped by Jezebel to discuss the meaning behind the album.

The Drag Race All-Stars Season 4 Cast Is Here and I'm Already Rooting for Latrice Royale

The <i>Drag Race All-Stars</i> Season 4 Cast Is Here and I'm Already Rooting for Latrice Royale

Guess who’s back in the house, heels click-clackin about? It’s the cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars, bitch!

Entertainment Weekly announced the cast and reading the names I am currently sweating thinking about how dramatic this season is going to be. Jasmine Masters, who has not been shy talking about how Drag Race “fucked up” drag, is back, including “does not know the words to Ariana...

'Can We Say Penis at the Mall?' My Drunken Afternoon at a Shopping Center Drag Show

'Can We Say Penis at the Mall?' My Drunken Afternoon at a Shopping Center Drag Show

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 popped to the gods. This is glamor, I, for...

Michelle Visage Evicts Her 'Toxic Sacks of Silicone'

Michelle Visage Evicts Her 'Toxic Sacks of Silicone'

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 Self-Assured and Sparkling

Shuga Cain Is Self-Assured and Sparkling

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, god love ‘em) have seemed to struggle internally with their doyenne status...

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

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

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...

Gia Gunn's Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent Make Drag Race Worth Watching

Gia Gunn's Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent Make Drag Race Worth Watching

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 noticing that she and Monique...

They Look Great

They Look Great

VH1 just released the first 14 minutes of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season four, premiering this Friday, and I’m pleased to report that the budget is there.

Not the show’s budget—god, no. They’re still filming in that ceilingless workroom with the finest “brick” walls Jo-Ann Fabrics could furnish. I’m talking about the queens. They look great! Check out all their entrance looks below, plus...

Manila Luzon Is an All-Star Forever

Manila Luzon Is an All-Star Forever

Manila Luzon, the Los Angeles-based drag queen who came this close to winning RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 3, is back this Friday for her second appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars. Luzon, best known for her hot glued outfits and black and blonde striped wigs, came through the Jezebel offices last week to talk about All-Stars Season 4, her dream song to lip sync for her life, and why it’s...

You Guys Really Like RuPaul's Drag Race Huh

You Guys Really Like RuPaul's Drag Race Huh

RuPaul’s Drag Race is really fucking popular, Entertainment Weekly reports. Reddit released new data on Tuesday ranking the most discussed television shows on its various subreddits, ranked by how many unique pageviews that show’s subreddit got in the 2018 calendar year. VH1's Emmy-winning drag reality show came out on top with 8.8 million uniques on the r/rupaulsdragrace subreddit, beating...

The Best Looks From This Week's RuPaul's Drag Race

The Best Looks From This Week's <i>RuPaul's Drag Race</i>

This was the week in which the queens were tested in their acting skills—the episode which, despite Michelle Visage's decree that "girl you are a drag queen, you are experienced in acting," inevitably ends up in a shitshow of epic proportions. And this season, the tragedies were literally Shakespearean, as Ru enlisted the queens to do camp takes on Macbeth (as "Macbitch," aka my new legal...

'Fuck Thanksgiving,' the New Teaser for the Drag Race Christmas Special Seems to Suggest

'Fuck Thanksgiving,' the New Teaser for the Drag Race Christmas Special Seems to Suggest

There’s a new teaser trailer out for a RuPaul’s Drag Race spinoff series that’s different than the RuPaul’s Drag Race spinoff series you saw a new teaser trailer for last week.

On RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-Slay Spectacular, premiering December 7 on VH1, eight queens from past seasons of the show will compete to become RuPaul’s “very first Christmas Queen,” which could mean anything but...

Here's Like 11 or 12 Seconds of New Footage From RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars

Here's Like 11 or 12 Seconds of New Footage From RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars

In case you missed it—and perhaps you did! I only say “in case” to cover my bases. But in case you missed it, VH1 released a new teaser trailer for the fourth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars , premiering in December.

The teaser, spotted on Entertainment Weekly, is only 30 seconds long, and, of those 30 seconds, only about 11 or 12 of them contain actual new footage from this latest,...

Pearl Claims She Was Banned from RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars in Retribution for Interview Comments

Pearl Claims She Was Banned from RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars in Retribution for Interview Comments

Last week, season seven Drag Race runner-up Pearl unintentionally stirred a few pots when she confided to Hey Qween that RuPaul had told her “nothing you say matters unless that camera is rolling.” Pearl now claims that the comments spun off into “incredibly overly dramatized and exaggerated” headlines saying that she’d “dragged” RuPaul, exposing Mama Ru as an elitist who doesn’t care about...

Pearl Says 'It Was Foolish' to Think She'd Have a Relationship with RuPaul

Pearl Says 'It Was Foolish' to Think She'd Have a Relationship with RuPaul

Is there something on Pearl’s face? Yes. And it’s called additional context.

Three years after her run on RuPaul’s Drag Race , the season 7 finalist has explained why she might’ve seemed so deeply whatever about the competition. On a new episode of YouTube web series Hey Qween, released Wednesday, Pearl told co-hosts Johnny McGovern and Lady Red Couture that despite the whole “Call Me Mother”...

Monét X. Change, Serving You 'Queen of Wakanda', Is the Queen of Our Hearts

Monét X. Change, Serving You 'Queen of Wakanda', Is the Queen of Our Hearts

On the first true day of warm, spring weather in New York, RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Monét X. Change swept out of the bathroom, resplendent in a purple and green printed gown, covered in what looked like abstract renderings of heads of lettuce and maybe, a human brain. “I got this at the Bronx Terminal Market, girl, from this lovely African man,” Monét told Jezebel. “I don’t remember his...

Is the End of RuPaul's Drag Race Nigh?

Is the End of <i>RuPaul's Drag Race </i>Nigh?

Is the titular host of RuPaul’s Drag Race looking to leave the show? Ru hasn’t said anything about ending his run on the Emmy Award-winning VH1 series, but some new developments have me wondering if he might be eyeing the exit.

RuPaul’s currently working on a talk show pilot for the same production company that makes The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Variety reports. If picked up, the show will...

It Took RuPaul's Drag Race 10 Years to Honor Cher, But it Was Worth the Wait

It Took <i>RuPaul's Drag Race </i>10 Years to Honor Cher, But it Was Worth the Wait

Chad Michaels would be proud. I feel relieved and quite pleased to say that “Cher: The Unauthorized Musical” on last night’s RuPaul’s Drag Race was a delight, through and through, and was certainly not the disaster it could’ve been in unskilled hands.

At this point in the game, halfway through the season, it’s truly anyone’s game, and this is when this show finally picks up. When the stakes...

What are Mother RuPaul's Intentions?

What are Mother RuPaul's Intentions?

What precisely is RuPaul’s agenda? What does she value? What eyes does she have that I don’t?

It is a travesty that Mis Cracker has departed and Kameron Michaels is still here. It is sad to me that Kameron Michaels is still in this competition—not because I don’t think she’s a talented, capable competitor, but because I think Miz Cracker, for all her faults, is very good. It is also a huge...
