RuPaul's Drag Race Winner Bob the Drag Queen on Pride, Being Confident and Staying Strong After Orlando

17 June 2016 1:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"It's okay to say you're doing well in the time of tragedy." That's the advice from Bob the Drag Queen - the season 8 winner of Logo's popular RuPaul's Drag Race, in the wake of Sunday's Orlando shooting that left 49 dead and injured 53. "It was horrible and terrifying," Bob tells People of the massacre, which occurred at gay nightclub Pulse. "It was a blatant and hateful attack on our community, and I refuse to let terror win." Still, despite the horrors, the 29-year-old thinks the Lgbtq community can find a way to stay strong after the tragedy. "It's okay to pay »

RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race Season 2 Cast Revealed!

17 June 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.Back in 2009, you'd be hard-pressed to find an average American who knew the definition of a death drop or how to read a queen for filth. That all changed with RuPaul's Drag Race, the must-see competition series returning this summer with its second All Stars season on Logo. And it promises to be bitchier and funnier than ever. "The girls dropped whatever they were doing to do this," RuPaul says. "We've got a hundred girls now, so we could pretty much do All Stars forever." So who's going to lip-sync »

[[tmz:video id="0_bmy4vu7w"]] The last moments before Omar Mateen burst into Pulse nightclub were filled with dancing, boozing and a celebrity performance ... as seen in this video TMZ obtained. This was the scene inside Pulse early Sunday morning, less than 2 hours before the shooting started. As we've reported ... it was Latin night, and in this video it's clear how packed it was.

14 RuPaul Quotes That Will Really, Truly Start Your Engine

2 June 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Avid watchers of RuPaul's Drag Race have likely come to accept a few things as fact. There will always be endless GIFs and quotable moments, devastating eliminations, and death-defying "lip sync for your life" moments on the show. And, in addition to all the fierce new songs she drops, Ru will always deliver her signature bits of wisdom. "Good luck, and don't f*ck it up," she'll say before a challenge. "If you can't love yourself," she'll ask at the end of every episode, "how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?" By this token, it should come as no surprise that RuPaul is positively teeming with wisdom, and the iconic drag queen's most well-known quotes are just the tip of the iceberg. On Self-Love "Look at me - a big old black man under all of this makeup, and if I can look beautiful, so can you." "If you can't love yourself, »

And the Season 8 Drag Race Winner is...

17 May 2016 5:31 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Last night, our favorite reality not-so-guilty pleasure wrapped up it's eighth season. RuPaul's Drag Race definitely came back strong this season after the underwhelming seventh stumbled. This crop of queens was among the most talented and dynamic, resulting in the show's best top three ever. Whether the eventual winner would be the boisterous Bob the Drag Queen, the heartwarming and inventive Kim Chi, or the glamazon Naomi Smalls, we the adoring audience could hardly complain.

After each of them performed fun lipsyncs to original tracks (available on iTunes *wink*), their individual interviews provided the night's best entertainment: Bob got a video message from Carol Channing praising her Snatch Game win to Bob's aghast tears; Kim dished on her relationship with her mother (who still has no knowledge of Kim's success) and delivered the night's best read aimed at the Pit Crew; Naomi gushed about the approval from her idol Naomi Campbell »

RuPaul's Drag Race: Best Final Three Ever?

10 May 2016 10:09 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Which team are you on for RuPaul's Drag Race's finale next week? I'm so curious because for the first time I'd be happy with nearly any outcome. I suspect Kim Chi will take the crown as Bob or Naomi might too closely recall the last two winners under Clown and Fashion wings of drag respectively, and Kim Chi is a new direction. 

It's always strange during the season when they take that week off before the finale. Monday rolls around and... no queens. [Scene from Nathaniel's House: "Life is empty," he cried dramatically while turning off the TV last night. And... scene.] Though Season 8 started strong and only crashed in the middle with the Snatch Game before returning to glory, we're left with (gasp) the strongest top three ever. If you'll allow a little "it's all about Me" moment, this is the only time in Drag Race herstory where my three favorite contestants all made the finals. That's like having, I don't know, your two favorite films of »

Swing, Tarzan, Swing! Ch.1: Buster Crabbe's Loincloth

8 May 2016 8:09 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

New Miniseries! As we approach the release of The Legend of Tarzan (2016) we'll be ogling past screen incarnations of the Lord of the Apes each weekend like we're going to an old timey matinee.

We begin with Buster Crabbe as Tarzan the Fearless (1933) who looks much better in this movie than implied on the poster which imagines him from maxi-challenge workroom outtakes from RuPaul's Drag Race. Blend, man, blend!

This next image is more flattering I promise »

Well That Was Unexpected! Todd Chrisley Performs Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' on Lip Sync Battle

13 April 2016 7:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

[Youtube "WiXuAFKjhIM"] File under: Things You Cannot Unsee.A newly released sneak peek at Thursday's Lip Sync Battle features Todd Chrisley performing Robin Thicke's chart-topping 2013 hit "Blurred Lines." Chrisley, a family man, wisely avoids including naked models à la Thicke's controversial video for the song, but let's just say there are plenty of hip thrusts. The Chrisley Knows Best patriarch, 47, even gets a gasp out of host LL Cool J and competitor NeNe Leakes. As for The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 48, a previous sneak peek already revealed that she will channel RuPaul with a full-scale homage to the the RuPaul's Drag Race host's 1993 hit "Supermodel. »

[Youtube "SZXy_5Te8xM"] You better werk!NeNe Leakes is pulling out the stops - not to mention wigs, sky-high heels and gowns - for her face-off against Todd Chrisley on Thursday's Lip Sync Battle. In a sneak peek at the bout, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 48, channels diva extraordinnare RuPaul in a performance of the RuPaul's Drag Race host's 1993 hit "Supermodel." Leakes has set the bar high with her muscular, bare-chested mantourage and "Material Girl"-style performance, but the Chrisley Knows Best patriarch, 47, certainly knows how to bring the drama. Things might not be so peachy come Thursday night (10 p.m. Et »

Rpdr S8.5: Like a *Blank*

6 April 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here, filling in for Nathaniel's weekly recap of RuPaul's Drag Race. This week was everyone's perennial favorite: Snatch Game! Past seasons have made this celebrity impersonation challenge a complete game changer, catapulting contenders like Jinkx Monsoon and Chad Michaels straight to the finals. In fact, only one Snatch Game winner has ever placed less than fifth place: season three's Stacy Layne Matthews (performing as Mo'Nique via her Oscar-winning Precious performance).

You could easily argue that this challenge is more anticipated than the season finale's crowning, and after last season's unmemorable edition, fans were hungry for this year's queens to bring the laughs.

And it brings me no joy to tell you that the episode was an unfortunate dud. »

Why We'll Never Forget Robert Mapplethorpe

5 April 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Robert Mapplethorpe decided he was an important artist long before he was even making important art. Growing up in 1950s Queens, New York, he escaped to art school in Brooklyn, searching for a way to transform himself. He was the outcast who took drugs and dressed weird, until he found his path to stardom. That ambition shines through in the new HBO documentary, Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures. Directed by Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey — the producers of RuPaul's Drag Race who have also examined oddballs and outliers in documentaries such as Party Monster, »

Would Gigi Hadid Rather Hang Out With Drag Queens or Supermodels?

4 April 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Gigi Hadid makes a difficult choice on Monday's episode of RuPaul's Drag Race. The supermodel and occasional reality star appears on the show as a very special celebrity guest judge, and in E! News' exclusive sneak peek at the episode, host RuPaul asks her a very difficult question: Who's more fun to hang out with, supermodels or drag queens? That's a tough question, since we all know Gigi hangs out with her fellow supermodel besties on the reg, but how many drag queens are in her squad? Wisely, she makes the right choice for the room she's in: "Well, I've never had this much fun at a runway show, so drag queens, of course!" Press play on the video above to watch »

Drag Queens Cheer Up Lonely Virginia Teen Waiting for Heart Transplant: 'It Was Like Talking to a Group of Friends'

It has been a lonely time for 18-year-old Kyla Robbins. The homeschooler from the tiny town of Floyd, Virginia, is waiting for a heart transplant and says her friends have found it tough to understand what she's going through. So during her latest hospital visit, she and her mom came up with a plan to cheer her up.

RuPaul Says Lip Sync Battle Is ''a Poor Ripoff'' of Drag Race

23 March 2016 2:17 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It turns out not everyone is a fan of Lip Sync Battle. The new Spike TV show hosted by LL Cool J has taken the world by storm with it's entertaining lip sync battles between the stars, but RuPaul wants to remind everyone that the sole idea was first illustrated on the small screen on his popular reality competition series RuPaul's Drag Race. The 55-year-old drag supermodel silenced the hype surrounding Lsb when he was asked what he thought of the show by Vulture, "Oh, I don't think of it. It's a poor ripoff of our show." In Drag Race, lip sync performances play a key role in deciding which queens shanté (stay) and which queens sashay away (get the boot). Spike TV had no »

Rpdr S8.1 Donut Come For Me!

10 March 2016 11:30 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We're days late arriving to the conversation about RuPaul's Drag Race Season 8 but donut come for me (heh). There are only so many hours in the day. Watching the "Meet the Queens" teaser I predicted Bob, Kim Chi and Laila for the top three (in a betting pool) and then Laila landed in the bottom two the very first episode. Whoops! There goes a tenner.

Kim Chi, who describes herself as an anime character, did a Cowardly Lion homage (there are always movie references!). More after the jump if you're so inclined...  »
