Oh, yes. Seth Rogen is one of my weird celebrity crushes of the vaguely chubby, grizzly-faced variety, a pet category of mine that also includes Chris Pratt and Seth’s buddy Jason Segel. I feel like I’m always having to defend these unorthodox attractions of mine. People just don’t understand. No explanation should be necessary any longer, because Seth’s recent actions speak for themselves. Keep reading »
For an upcoming episode of his show, Dr. Oz got all dragged up to convince female shoe shoppers to choose comfort over fashion. He’s not convincing anyone of anything in this Margaret Thatcher meets Monica Lewinsky getup. Not to throw shade or anything, but he looks awfully fishy in that shapeless blazer. All that women are going to do when they see him is run for for the nearest pair of Louboutins. What a disaster. RuPaul, please help him! [People]
Nicole Richie is on a mission to be a bit more of a drag queen. So who better to learn from than the most legendary lady of them all, RuPaul?
“I don’t want to regret that I didn’t take advantage of my drag years,” Richie admits in the latest episode of her hit AOL webseries, “Candidly Nicole.”
That’s why the style maven steps into RuPaul’s school of drag, where she finds out how to dress, act and even speak like a true queen. And if you too are feeling the itch to dial up the drag in your life, here are five take-home tips. Read more on Celebuzz…
This is a photo of RuPaul and his date at a high school prom in 1983. We’re gonna guess that it was his date’s prom, not his, as he was born in 1960 (which would make him, you know, 23 here). Even back then, Ru had impeccable taste — we’re loving the boots. And his date’s crocheted frock is really cute, too. Do you think they’re still friends? I hope so! [Flavorwire]
All this inclement weather just makes me want to dance. Thank God for RuPaul’s sickening, new music video for her single “Peanut Butter” featuring Big Freedia. It must be jelly cause jam don’t shake, hunty. I’m going to be making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches all weekend. That wasn’t code for something gross. I just meant I’m going to do a lot of dancing. [ONTD]
This week’s New York magazine cover story, meant to help us get to know front-runner New York City mayoral candidate Christine Quinn, is, unintentionally perhaps, peppered with witty one-liners that would make RuPaul and Michelle Visage jealous. The highlight is Mayor Bloomberg’s little cameo where he gestures toward a woman in a very tight floor-length gown standing nearby and says to Quinn, “Look at the ass on her.” Sure, this can be seen as objectifying skeeviness, but when, in the next paragraph, Quinn talks about how Bloomberg doesn’t like her in flat boots, you get the picture that these two are the catty, shade-throwing queens of City Hall. They should really throw a ball and read politicians all night. I’d attend. Below, some of their best lines. Oh, and if you’re not familiar with Bloomberg, you should check out his parody Twitter account, @ElBloombito. [New York Magazine]
“I didn’t see the Golden Globes, because the idea of watching of watching the popular rich kids in high school congratulating themselves, the idea of the popular, beautiful rich kids from high school putting on a show to congratulate themselves … oh boy.”
–RuPaul, on the whole trouble with awards season, in Paper magazine. Ru also dishes on the new season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and the latest crop of queens. “The new groups are always different shades of…shade.It’s hard to put into words, but they’re young. They’re very contemporary. We’ve got some girls who are old-school but not as many as we’ve had in the past.” [Paper Mag]
Did you watch all of the election coverage last night? We did, and we weren’t the only ones. Celebs were all fired up on Twitter last night as they waited for the election returns come in. We gathered up some of the best, funniest Twitter responses — including RuPaul‘s amazing “Drag Race” comments (which have been retweeted more than 26,000 times), above — after the jump!

I love a joke that’s taken way too far, and that’s why I’m totally over the drag queen moon for the Twitter account @Ron Paul’s Drag Race, a mash up of libertarian Republican candidate Ron Paul and “Ru Paul’s Drag Race” host RuPaul. Sashay, Chante! [Twitter]
Oh, you know, Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl and Frances Bean, just chilling with RuPaul. Right? The ’90s were a weird time. [Another Magazine] Keep reading »
