RuPaul made an announcement via a Vanity Fair event that next year there will be a four-episode “Drag Race” competition with celebrities as the contestants.

Celebrities will compete for the title of America’s Next Celebrity Drag Superstar plus they’ll win money they can donate to the charity of their choice.

“I can’t wait for the world to see what happens when our celebrity contestants get all up in drags!” said RuPaul.

The celebrities will be mentored by past Drag Race competitors and winners such as Alyssa Edwards, Asia O’Hara, Bob the Drag Queen, Kim Chi, Monét X Change, Monique Heart, Nina West, Trinity the Tuck, Trixie Mattel, and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo (“Vanjie, Vanjie, Vanjie”).

They haven’t announced the celebs yet but I’m hoping for Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, and Mike Pence. We can only hope!

To tide you over, here’s a flashback video from RuPaul’s debut album, featuring a song called “Back To My Roots”. Man that was a good album.

Having found the perfect meta name for a band, Matt Johnson released “Soul Mining” in 1983 under the band name The The. Although Matt was subject to a bidding war and got a huge advance from the winning label, the record sounds like it was recorded in a bedroom; still, the homemade vibe enhances its authenticity, with intensely private thoughts and emotions set to a cheap drum machine. There was enough polish, however, to make it sound sensational, especially when

Album Challenge Day 8: Take That’s “Beautiful World”

This is the greatest pop band that America’s never heard of. And what a story! Picture It: 1990. A British gay club in the middle of nowhere hosting a boyband of five straight lads, absolutely adorable even though their lead singer, Gary Barlow, thinks he’s fat and a bad dancer. Their manager, Nigel Martin-Smith, feels their path to stardom for his manufactured group is through the gays; he’s right because Take That eventually becomes a British phenomenon, unique in singing
