Outrage Watch: Last night's 'X-Files' is being accused of transphobia

2 February 2016 11:31 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to Outrage Watch, HitFix's semi-regular rundown of entertainment-related kerfuffles. Not feeling anxious enough already? Get your fix of righteous indignation below, and stay posted for outrage updates throughout the week. Last night's Darin Morgan-scripted X-Files episode "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster" was the best-received episode of the series revival yet -- our own Alan Sepinwall said it "lived up to every wish and hope I had for it" -- but not everyone was in love with the "monster-of-the-week" throwback. Enter Jezebel contributor Julianne Escobedo Shepherd, who writes that while she enjoyed "Were-Monster" up to a point, Morgan "fumbled [the episode's] 'trans narrative,'" which involved a monster-bashing transgender prostitute played by former RuPaul's Drag Race contestant D.J. “Shangela” Pierce.  The crux of Escobedo Shepherd's argument revolves around three major plot points: 1. The prostitute Annabelle is "cast stereotypically as a sex worker";  2. The fact of Annabelle's transition is shoehorned »

It’s the Dirty Dozen: Meet RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8 Queens

2 February 2016 7:24 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Gird your tucks: Mama Ru is coming for you. RuPaul's Drag Race returns for its eighth season in March, with a brand-new group of 12 drag queens vying for the title of America's best fake crier. Judging from their names alone, Bob the Drag Queen has already stolen our hearts. (Names are important! Remember Sharon Needles?) The others are Acid Betty, Chi Chi DeVayne, Cynthia Lee Fontaine, Dax ExclamationPoint, Derrick Barry, Kim Chi, Laila McQueen, Naomi Smalls, Naysha Lopez, Robbie Turner, and Thorgy Thor, which we realize is too many to remember. Don't worry, the less memorable ones will get cut starting March 7. Off with their wigs! You can get to know the contestants better in this little meet-and-greet video. »

RuPaul's Drag Race is Back, Squirrelfriends

2 February 2016 5:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The wait is over, chickadees! Rupaul's Drag Race returns for its eighth season on March 7. Also the show is celebrating in centennial fashion: not only has it hit 100 episodes, but now the show has now ushered 100 drag queens to our tv screens

After an underwhelming seventh season that nevertheless brought new fan favorites like Katya, Trixie Mattel, and winner Violet Chachki, our favorite not-so-guilty pleasure is back with a new batch of queens to adore. And the new crew looks promising, from big names like Derrick Barry (the Britney Spears impersonator) to new blood like Naomi Smalls. Expect the hilarious Bob the Drag Queen to give good quote, with Robbie Turner (part of the same Seattle gang as Jinkx Monsoon and BenDeLaCreme) the frontrunner for the all-important Snatch Game.

The brief glimpse so far is already more enticing than the drab presentation Logo gave the contestants last year - hopefully »

Here's Natalie Cole having a blast watching a drag queen slay 'This Will Be'

4 January 2016 10:21 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Natalie Cole, the Grammy-winning R&B singer who passed away at age 65 last week, did not mind watching other performers take on her biggest hits. In fact, during one memorable episode of "RuPaul's Drag Race," she acted as a guest judge and watched drag queen Dida Ritz absolutely mesmerize with a lip-sync version of "This Will Be." It is astonishing television and Natalie knew it.    Get More: Logo TV   In the clip, Dida Ritz is competing against another contestant named The Princess. The two contestants who receive the lowest scores during the episode's main challenge are ordered to "lip-sync for their lives." As you can see, that's what Dida Ritz did. Rip to the legendary Natalie Cole.    »
