RuPaul's Drag Race Tag. // Brooklyn Is Burning

drag is the most punk-rock thing that you can do, because it reminds culture not to take itself too seriously... (it says), 'fuck that. I can be whatever the hell I want to be' – RuPaul, rupaul charles, rupaul's drag race, rupaul's drag race tag, blogger, fashion, drag queens
Last friday night, I was casually scrolling through my social media feed when I came across the RuPaul's Drag Race Tag on Adventure & Anxiety which was created by Cardigan Jezebel. RuPaul's Drag Race is my favourite thing in the world and I actually named my first blog 'Hey, kitty gurl' (C'mon season 7!!). So of course I had to do this tag! Without further ado, here is my take on the RuPaul's Drag Race Tag: 

FAVOURITE SEASON?
It's a tie between season 6 and season 7. Those are the two seasons I've re-watched the most times. They're both sooo good because of queens like Katya, Trixie, Pearl, Miss Fame, Max, Violet, Adore, Bianca, Courtney, Darienne and Joselyn. I LOVED All Stars 2 as well!

FAVOURITE RUPAUL SONG?
I have one thing to say: Sashay, shanté. Shanté, shanté. Shanté, shanté, shanté! Supermodel is probably my favourite RuPaul song. It's the original, but I also love Cover Girl, Jealous of My Boogie, Sissy That Walk, If I Dream, Champion, Click Clack and Step It Up.

FAVOURITE DRAG QUEEN?
Ph: Netflix
I honestly love all of them, but Adore Delano is a precious gem to me. I love love love her to Uranus and back. She's my baby <3

FAVOURITE MAXI CHALLENGE?
Ph: YouTube
Snaaaaaaatch gaaaammmeee! It's hilarious. Tatianna as Britney Spears, Bianca Del Rio as Judge Judy and Alaska as Mae West are some of the best and most memorable impersonations in my opinion. I really love the challenge in All Stars 2 with Katya's Krisis Kontrol and her freaking turkey as well, hahahah.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN ANY RU-GIRLS LIVE?
When I was in New York, Milk walked past me on 30th street at Lexington Avenue (yes, I remember the exact address, haha). I froze and I nearly had a heart attack so I just stood there and took photos of her back as if I was some kind of creepy stalker. Other than that, I'm going to DragWorld in London in August and I'm very tempted to go see some of the queens when they're in Copenhagen in June.

FAVOURITE DRAG RACE WINNER?
Ph: Netflix
Raja and Violet because they both have and impeccable sense of style and really brought IT throughout their respective seasons.

MOST ROBBED QUEEN?
Probably Raven (twice, haha) or Katya. I wanted Raven to win season 2 and I wanted Katya to win All Stars 2. When Alaska won All Stars 2, I was in shock (I do love Alaska, I just love Katya more). I was sure that my favourite Run-off-the-Mill, Russian, bisexual, transvestite hooker was going to snatch the crown. 

BEST FIGHT?
in the great tradition of paris is burning, the library is open, reading is fundamental, rupaul's drag race, season 2, jujubee
Ph: Netflix
Can I change it to favourite read? I'm not living for the fights, but my favourite read was everything that came out of Jujubee's mouth in the 'Reading Is Fundamental' of season 2.

BIGGEST SHOCK?
When Tatianna was sent home TWICE in All Stars 2. Both times were very unexpected to say the least and I was so not having it.

MOST UNDERRATED RUNWAY LOOK?
rupaul's drag race season 7, violet and max, violet chachki
Ph: Netflix
Max and Violet Chachki's 'conjoined queens' look. I totally think that Pearl and Trixie deserved to win that challenge, but I was very inspired by Max and Violet's look too. Everything about their look was so well-executed from makeup to wig to garments to synchronized walking.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST, WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE LIP SYNC?
rupaul's drag race, this will be natalie cole, natalie cole in drag race, dida ritz, lip sync for your life
Ph: Netflix
OMG – Definitely when Dida Ritz and the Princess lip synced to This Will Be!!!!! It was iconic, phenomenal and, as Latrice Royale said, it was high drag at its finest. Dida Ritz lip synced the house down. Everyone in that room was living, including Natalie Cole herself, for Dida Ritz right then and there.

And remember, if you can't love yourself how in the hell you gonna love somebody else? Can I get an amen up in here?
