From one reality show performance to another. Danny Noriega, whom you might remember from season seven of American Idol, will be a contestant on the upcoming season of RuPaul's Drag Race. He'll be appearing as his drag alter ego Adore Delano, and sadly lip-synching (not singing) for his life. (If you're struggling to remember Danny on Idol, here's a video that sums it all up. He is adorable.) »

The first time Lady Gaga appeared on Saturday Night Live in 2009, she showed up for three minutes to have a catfight with Madonna. Now she's the host, the musical guest, and the bigger star. On Saturday night's show, Gaga went full-circle, making fun of her own music's resemblance to Madonna's hits. But the moment was just a blip on the screen, during a night when Gaga rarely left the stage. Turns out that SNL is an ideal showcase for one of Lady Gaga's greatest strengths as a performer: creating characters. »
He's officially winning the internet, both with his Halloween-themed "Chicago" spoof, "Spell Block Tango," and his retelling of the classic story of "Cinderella" ... using only Beyoncé songs.
The fairy tale takes a turn for the fabulous as "Cinderoncé" (Tiffany Daniels) gets help from her Fairy Dragmother, "RuPaul's Drag Race" contestant Shangella, before her Prince Charming (Hall) puts her "Love on Top."
Watch the fierce version of "Cinderella" below:
When RuPaul's Drag Race sashayed into our lives in February 2009, it didn't instantly snatch wigs. In fact, it's taken six seasons (including one All-Stars edition) for the show to permeate the mainstream, earn inclusion in nearly every "Snubbed By Emmy" story and be considered Must See TV.
But loyal fans have known since day one that RuPaul was on to something special with this eleganza extravaganza, and now Logo's giving Johnny-come-lately's the chance to come correct and -- finally -- experience the first edition of Drag Race! The 9-episode season, which has not been re-aired or available on DVD due to legal issues, premieres tonight and includes never-before-seen footage, new cast interviews and "peek-a-Ru" pop-up commentary!
ETonline caught up with the H.B.I.C. to talk about revisiting the first season, the show's ultimate legacy and why drag -- and Drag Race -- still has a long way to go to truly be considered "popular culture »
Britney Spears' new single "Work Bitch" is working even harder now with a RuPaul mashup. This thing of your dreams combines the mumbly, delightful new dance track with the 1992 catwalk classic "Supermodel (You Better Work)." It's a little more of the former than the latter, but still: a make-over with all good "work." Sashay. Shantay. Britney Spears has a new album due on Dec. 3 and announced a Las Vegas residency today. The world eagerly awaits the return of "RuPaul's Drag Race," which is re-airing its first season starting later this month on Logo. »

There have been lots of parodies of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" music video, but this one takes the cake! L.A. drag queens Willam Belli, Detox (both former contestants from RuPaul's Drag Race) and Vicky Vox have just released a video called "Blurred Bynes" in which they take on Amanda Bynes' wild antics (warning: video contains Nsfw explicit language). The video is complete with the original "Blurred Lines" video's signature wild animals, hot models showing off their bods (except it's men this time) and exercise equipment inside a big white room. The three queens sing, "Ok she smoked some weed, you know you can't malign her. So high she tweets to Drake »
If Dr. Oz is hoping to become a contestant on RuPaul's Drag Race, he's got some work to do. In these exclusive photos from the upcoming Sept. 10 show, the cardiothoracic surgeon goes deep undercover Tootsie-style to convince unsuspecting shoe shoppers to choose comfort over fashion - further proof that the good doctor is not ready for drag!Dr. Oz pairs a boxy red blazer with a black mini, black tights and black pumps - all fine apart from the confusing apron-like panel just below the waist, probably meant to conceal ... that he's not a lady. However, Mrs. Oz seems to »

If you only watch one musical adaptation of Cinderella, set to the music of Beyoncé today, let it be Cinderoncé. The YouTubusical gives the rags to royalty story of the Disney classic a fierce—make that, Sasha Fierce—twist: Cinderoncé gets a "Freakum Dress" makeover courtesy of her fairy drag mother Shangella from RuPaul's Drag Race. Single ladies dance to "Single Ladies" at the ball. Etc. And, as one E! Online staffer admitted, "I got chills when he put the glass slipper on and 'Love on Top' started *tear*" Cinderoncé comes from former American Idol finalist and YouTube personality Todrick Hall. It'd be easy to brush the »

RuPaul is hitting the road. The actor, drag queen, and host of VH1's RuPaul's Drag Race will give notable people rides around La in his new web series, RuPaul Drives. RuPaul Drives has the same skeleton as Jerry Seinfeld's chatty web series, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. In both, the host (a famous TV star) picks up a guest with a similar profession (many of Seinfeld's guests are comedians and many of RuPaul's will be other notable people from the Lgbt community.) Once the two celebs are in the car together, the camera follows them as they drive around the city and shoot the bull. RuPaul changes up Seinfeld's formula by skipping the coffee and rolling around in a Volvo rather than some fancy, rare car. RuPaul's first guest is none other than YouTube star and self-proclaimed 'professional fangirl' Tyler Oakley. Fresh off his one million subscriber milestone, »

There has already been speculation on which drag queens will grace the stage during the sixth season but the topic of guest judges hasn't been broached.

This wouldn't be the first time Gaga has been on a reality series. She has previously been a guest judge on "So You Think You Can Dance?" and even played herself on the MTV series, "The Hills." There have been plenty of familiar faces as judges in the past on "Drag Race" such as Latoya Jackson, »

Just two short days after unveiling her newest single, the first off upcoming album "Artpop," Lady Gaga has already released a lyric video for "Applause." But this is no ordinary lyric video -- it is Lady Gaga after all.
While most musicians settle for some cool graphics to display their lyrics as a means of holding their fans over until an official video is released, Lady Gaga went ahead and starred in her Wednesday (Aug. 14) release.
On Monday (the same night "Applause" hit iTunes), Gaga went out to Micky's, a West Hollywood gay bar. While there, she filmed clubgoers (many of whom showed up at the insistence of a tweet from Gaga herself), fans and some wildly fierce drag queens getting their party on. "RuPaul's Drag Race" fans will quickly spot fan favorite Willam in the mix.
Check out Gaga's "Applause" lyric video above and let us know if you're applauding. »

In a disturbing Internet backlash following actress Raven-Symone's coming out last week, many Twitter users are responding with 140-character claims that the news has ruined their childhood.
Insinuating that the realization of the star's sexuality somehow destroys the impact of the hit Disney Channel show "That's So Raven" on their development, the amount of Twitter users hashtagging #childhoodruined seems surprising in a supposedly more open era of human expression, especially among younger generations.

(A slideshow of similar Tweets is provided below.)
Prior to Raven's understated coming out via Tweet, speculation surrounding her sexuality was nothing new. Last year, fueled by a story published in The National Enquirer, rumors spiraled that Raven-Symone was in a relationship with AzMarie Livingston, a former contestant on "American's Next Top Model." Raven responded to the rumors via Twitter: "I'm living »

It's hard to pinpoint exactly what has brought Lady Bunny the most fame.
The legendary drag queen, who created the non-defunct annual New York City drag festival Wigstock in the mid-80s, has been performing, DJing, releasing music and appearing in films and on TV shows like "RuPaul's Drag Race" and "RuPaul's Drag U" for nearly three decades.
Known for hilarious -- and filthy -- parody covers of tracks by pop stars like Katy Perry, Bunny released an uncharacteristically straight forward dance single, "Take Me Up High" (see the video above) in July and the track has already climbed to number 29 on the Billboard Dance Chart.
We caught up with Bunny to chat about her new song, her connection to the transgender community, how her life changed after 9/11 and more.

The legendary James St. James is back on the scene in a whole new way: with a stunning new YouTube series that you literally can not miss out on.
Over the past few months, everyone's favorite club kid and celebutante has released weekly videos in his "Transformations" project, each featuring a prominent makeup artist, performance artist or, more recently, your favorite queens from "RuPaul's Drag Race!"
