The popularity of RuPaul’s Drag race has grown by leaps and bounds and now in this years Emmy’s a whopping 9 nominations!
RuPaul Andre Charles is an American drag queen, actor, model, singer, songwriter, and television personality. Since 2009, he has produced and hosted the reality competition series RuPaul’s Drag Race, for which he has received three Primetime Emmy Awards, in 2016, 2017, and 2018.
If you have ever had the opportunity to watch the show, it is fun, funny, and even makes this makeup and color queen envious. The styles and creativity on this show are amazing! Shante you stay” and “Sashay away” are two rhyming statements* that were coined and are being popularized by RuPaul. You Betta Werk! is another phrase that has gained popularity over the years as well in the music scene. The drag scene has bloomed and become a mainstay in in American Culture and offers a unique and sometimes campy look at the world of drag. What I love most about it is that you can be a fierce, fly, sophisticated or just plain weird and shine because of who you are! And there have been moments that Ru has out-fierced herself in wardrobe and more! Yes hunty!
So remember when you hear you will have to Lip Sync for your Liiiife! Do your best and well, Don’t F**k it up!
