i thought this was an interesting read
I'm a little off Ru himself these days. Assuming this is the one where he talks about his philosophy studies - and I don't believe he doesn't want an Emmy for a second. If he doesn't want to be mainstream, then why pander so much with the show?
there's whiff of bitterness about the whole thing which i find interesting, almost like he's hurt by not having been invited to the emmy's or ellen.
but there's a lot of interesting shit in there.
I want to know the beef he has with Lady Kier. Are you in the know am?
never heard of it):
What is he talking about not being invited to the Emmys?
I really like some of Ru's philosophy but some of it really feels like it comes from a seriously out-of-touch place both in terms of his wealth and his generation. Ru's path to the top is one that is far more difficult to achieve today as the big cities price out their artists and creatives. It's all fine wanting to stick two fingers up to the world and shun "the 9-5 hypocrisy" but the reality is having to find means of surviving in those now extremely expensive places where alternative careers can be developed.
I just don't like that it seems more like memorized lines rather than actual, authentic opinions. He's no Geru Horner.
I find it rich when he complains about lip synch battle stealing his idea. I mean for sure the show exists becaus of drag race but Ru should know that appropriating someone else's shtick is fair game, otherwise the cast of Paris is Burning will need to have a word with her.
Yes her Googlebox appearance was sensational.
Well I'm happy you liked it. I didn't think much of it.
not to mention tyra banks.
it definitely feels like he has a bee up his bonnet about a lot of stuff.
As if Ru wouldn't DIE for an Emmy nomination. Of course she'd turn up to the ceremony looking like Peewee Herman as usual which would rightfully cause everyone to wonder why the fuck RuPaul thinks anyone gives a shit about her out of drag
Sorry but I've got a bee in MY bonnet about all the bees in Ru's bonnet
Five G's girl!

Oh my, Madge & Ru would make a marvellous stand-up duo.
He really can be a bit of a not very likeable tit. I know that he's apparently not into drag these days but that doesn't stop him dollying himself up on the show so why not here?
MAKE AN EFFORT LOVE
I know right? You can't portray yourself as the mother of all drag queens and never be seen in drag.
To be fair, he has said that the whole point of the competition is to bring a new generation of queens into the spotlight, meaning that he can pass on the (Kelly) mantle, so to speak. Getting Ru to the level he is on the main stage on RPDR requires the presence of Mathu Andersen and takes HOURS, adding in the fact that bring in elaborate drag is wholly uncomfortable. You can't really blame an aging bloke for getting a bit OVER IT.
Well YES, except this is the EMMYS. He's not going down the chip shop and most of it is spent sat down anyway!
And because he wasn't in drag, that's why all his 'sass' fell flatter than Merle Ginsberg's pancake ass.
he's so full of shit. should've stuck to the enemas.
Oh I have an ointment for THAT.
