RuPaul is Ready for a New Lineup of ‘Drag Race’ Queens to “Spread the Love”
RuPaul Charles returned to Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss the newest season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
We all know the Queen of Drag loves a good time. There was no shortage of laughs last night during the late night interview. As soon as the groundbreaking diva sat, the extravaganza began.
“It’s good to be back home at Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Rupaul said.
Home indeed. RuPaul guest hosted Live! twice during this past summer. Kimmel wasted no time in thanking the RuPaul’s Drag Race host for the great environment that he created while guest hosting the late night show.
“My staff love you and they talk about you all of the time,” Kimmel said.
During the interview, the two quickly began discussing superheroes with Ru admitting that he just doesn’t get the big deal with Spiderman “I think because I’m gay.” He went on to say Superman makes sense because the character represents what’s special in all of us, which sounds like a Drag Icon to me.
“But the thing is that Clark Kent is hot, smokin’ hot,” he said.
What’s in Store for ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Season 14?
RuPaul has had four Christmas specials in his career and multiple Christmas albums, which includes the current hit “Hey Sis, It’s Christmas.” The song features fan favorites from Drag Race U.K Season 3. To celebrate this holiday success, and the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14, the queen brought RuPaul candy bars for everyone in the audience.
In this new season, RuPaul said there is a Willy Wonka theme and the queens must vie for the chocolate bars to continue on in the competition. Ru remained tight-lipped about the details, but the bars can be clearly seen in the trailer of the upcoming season.
The next installment of Drag Race will feature superstar guest judges such as Lizzo and Jennifer Lopez, plus a whole new lineup of superstar drag divas.
“I love the fact that these queens, I don’t know how many there are at this point, they’re all out there working and they’re spreading love…a few STDs probably…but there’s an ointment that will clear that up. I just love that they’re working and doing their thing,” he said.
You can catch the whole new group of queens when RuPaul’s Drag Race premieres January 7 on Vh1.
