Itís so disappointing when the non-rumix album version of Kitty Girl or American or whatever comes on the playlist and itís missing the queenís guest verses...

That's the one. And I'm trying to mentally pull it up, but I can't. I only hear "Kitty girl... To the mooooon...."

Has anyone ever figured out why the show never acknowledges "Supermodel"? Is it a rights issue? It took me a while to realize that "Cover Girl" was not in fact the same song.

I think the realness was the best ru song. Was that Lucien? It doesn't seem like his motif but I can't remember if he was still attached to the show in season 8

Yes Ru started her own vanity label to to the show songs iirc specifically because the record company wouldn't release the rights. In fact I think the company that owned supermodel got bought and sold a bunch in the late 90s and part of the issue was it actually belonged to a bunch of companies because of that? Might be wrong about that last part

I loved the runway songs this year for both US and UK. I know US used "Bring Back My Girls" for season 13--what did UK use for season 2?

iirc The Realness is Eric Kupper, but Lucian is credited as producing a bunch of songs off of the same album. My favourite Rupaul producer of the post-Lucian era is Kummerspeck of Mighty Love renown, mostly because their name translates to ďgrief baconĒ, the german word for the weight a person gains from eating their emotions

What a week it's been.
So much to talk about.
And so many things we can't talk about.



watched so much wrestling this weekend that I totally forgot about drag race and last night just texted a pal "hey, any eliminations? no? ok cool I'll skip it"

I normally love this show but Kandy's constant push and the fact that it's been going for like, 4 months has me pretty well over it.

I feel so bad for queens that get pushed to the end (Kandy Muse, Silky, or Roxxxy in AS2). It's obviously frustrating to see as a viewer, but it's not the queens' fault!

Reminds me of season 9 where, during Valentina v Nina, assholes online were attacking Alexis Michelle and telling her that she deserved to be in the bottom and should have volunteered to go home! Lovely choice there, get a ton of hate online or get blacklisted by Rupaul the Quitter-Hater.

I did love this one particular comment under the video:

Me: that's horrible!!
Bussy: so they're obliged to come for an all winners season

If you pronounce it like that youtuber does, the word pussy suddenly invokes far more images of discharge than one would generally care for.

I've seen people argue about whether Rupaul is saying "pussy on fire" or "bussy on fire" in Lucky.

I've never heard of him before, but that was interesting. On one hand, you're getting paid very little money and they take a large cut of your earnings in the years following your season. On the other hand, Drag Race is pretty much the only way to gain mainstream recognition as a drag queen. And it does seem like many of the queens are legitimately doing way better after the show than when they were on before.
