Lady Gaga To Guest Judge RuPaul’s Drag Race

Entertainment Weekly reports:

RuPaul’s Drag Race is going harder than Coco Montrese’s contour: Lady Gaga announced via Twitter Tuesday that she will appear on the reality competition’s upcoming season 9 premiere. “The time has come! I’m joining the girls on the season premiere of @RuPaulsDragRace!” Gaga tweeted, while also hash-tagging the lyrics #DontBeADrag #JustBeAQueen from her 2011 hit “Born This Way.”

In a short preview clip posted alongside Gaga’s tweet, Mother Monster, who literally dropped the mic during one of the most-watched Super Bowl halftime shows of all time last Sunday, is seen greeting the season 9 queens in the storied work room, where she recites RuPaul’s signature well-wishing line, “May the best woman win.”

    Good Get !!

  • Tiger Quinn

    That’s about all that’s got me interested in this lackluster season – looks like Kim Chi clones across the board.

    • Blake Mason

      I agree… when they revealed the cast in the last few years I always think there are returning queens from previous seasons… until I actually watch the interviews.

    • Blake Mason

      BTW…. have they set a date for the premier? Prob in March right?

      • Duh-David

        Ninth season? Doesn’t Logo just run Drag Race non-stop all year. Then they re-run an older season and fill my timeline with marketing claiming “all new episodes.”

    • AJ Drew

      So, can they bend the rules a bit and declare Gaga the winner?

  • Michael R
    • AJ Drew

      Prettier than Melania, speaks Russian… hmm. Would she take one for the team? /s (maybe)

      • JCF

        Does she REALLY speak Russian? Thought vas akt

    • Megrim Twist

      LOVE Katya!

    Someone tell cheetolini that many bigly more millions watched Lady Gaga’s halftime show than his low energy coronation. sad.

  • HZ81

    I hope she wears the chocolate condom outfit she wore with Ru to sing on one of her specials.

    Actually, maybe not. No. No Artpop, please.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Nooooo! No attacking teh Artpop!

      Yeah, more duds than any of her other albums, but… “Sexxdreams”!! “Venus”!!!!! “Fashion”!! (the amazing song she sang with RuPaul on her TV special.

      “You’ve got companyyyyy…”

      • HZ81

        We’re going to have to agree to disagree on this one. 😉

        • Lumpy Gaga

          Artpop! Artpop! Artp-o-o-o-o-p!

          • HZ81

            No. NOOOO. Just no. God, no. NO! 🙂

          • Lumpy Gaga

            I took a guest to the Artpop tour and decided to gift the CD afterwards via Amazon.

            She had moved.

          • HZ81

            Ha, I like her!

      • Tiger Quinn

        Artpop is a fantastic terrible album. I love quite a few of the songs but the whole damned thing is just so FRANTIC!!!!!

    • Amanda B. Rekendwith
  • Lumpy Gaga

    I’m coming in late to work tomorrow to participate in the fan club presale for her Philly show. (I have Verizon 100/100 at home. I have a proxy from hell at work.)

    I want a sub-$100 floor ticket. (My VIP -package-buying days are over.)

    If that doesn’t work, there’s another Citi Preferred presale Friday. They can be fruitful. Public peasants get to buy tix on Mon Feb. 13.

    • Tiger Quinn

      I had to read this five times to figure out what the hell this was saying.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Oh, GOD. It’s really very simple. Tickets for her Sep. 10 show go on sale Feb. 13.

        in the meantime, you got your fanclub-member presale (you’re issued a unique code to shop) and your Citbank “presale” (gotta use your Citibank card to pay) on Wednesday morning.

        Then Friday you got your “Live Nation” presale (they’re the promoters) and your “venue presale” (individual venue gets an allotment and sends email alerts to their subscribers, offering – mostly, but not always – a mediocre selection).

        Then, Mon Feb. 13, the public onsale starts, alongside the Citibank “Citi Preferred” sale. The “Citi Preferred” selection is usually pretty good if you get in fast enough, but (IIRC) you need a certain class of Citibank card to pay for your purchase.

        Of course, all this is the world’s fourth oldest profession – ticket brokering. It’s mostly about using social media to identify the most rabid, attention-paying fans — and unloading mediocre inventory into their grubby mitts.

        Lukewarm fans of any act won’t give you a wet-fart for a seat halfway back in a stadium or arena unless they need a pair for Aunt Sally, but those people who will just DIE if they don’t get a ticket — yeah, they’ll give you $500/pair for midcourt, twelve rows off the floor.

  • bambinoitaliano

    That should help the show get into the mainstream radar.

  • Megrim Twist
  • Rex

    No comment other than that yellow suit – ugh.

  • Megrim Twist
    • Lumpy Gaga

      “When I look at you… I don’t see the wires….”

      • Megrim Twist

        If you must fly on wires, do it in Versace.

        • Acronym Jim

          “Vair sayce”

    • Ernest Endevor

      Excellence in shadows.

  • Texndoc

    Guest “judge” is stretching the truth. Or it used to be. Dan Savage complained after his show aired that it is entirely Ru. That particular show there was near unanimous opinion Sharon won but PhiPhi needed win to keep the show competitive, so….and Savage didn’t like PhiPhi.

    • Sean Williams

      Well it is called Rupaul’s Drag Race. Additionally, Rupauls tell you on the show, “I have conferred with the judges but the decision is ultimately mine to make.”

      It is no secret that it is her show and her rules. Sorry Dan didn’t pay attention.

      • Texndoc

        Savage was responding on his Twitter to “How could you have picked her?!” tweets. It wasn’t him who didn’t pay attention

        • Tiger Quinn

          Because he wasn’t the one who went on a show where the rules are spelled out six times an episode. MY DECISION TO MAKE.

  • Michael R

    I’m not a real drag fan , and lip sync bores me ,
    but this show has some of the best TV moments

      My favorite moment was when Jinxx came out for the “Latina” runway, everyone else just looked Carmen Miranda. Even the home audience didn’t know what she was up to. But the others were talking what a disaster it would be…..and when Jinxx came out Ru let out the big GASP and was reeled back.

    • Stubenville

      Weirdly, it may be one of the most honest “reality” shows out there, in that the audience sees a lot of the backstage goings on and we know we’re being manipulated. Props to Mamma Ru; I may not always agree with the outcome, but I’m always entertained.

  • WiscoJoe

    When I first saw the photo, I assumed it was a new contestant. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

    • AJ Drew

      Ha! Yup… “meh, not a bad Gaga tribute, but, eh… ” Wait, Shangela again? Halleloo!

    • Vander333

      Apparently she pretends to be a Gaga look-a-like contestant, enters the work room like all the other queens before RuPaul reveals.

      • WiscoJoe

        That was my second thought. You watch enough reality TV, it all becomes so predictable…

        • Vander333

          I guess… to me it sounds amazing. Really looking forward to it.

      • JCF

        Adele already did that act!

  • Jeffrey

    I bet queens spontaneously burst into flames and melted into a pool of MAC upon hearing that Gaga was a guest judge that day.

  • Stubenville

    Do they barbecue the meat dress in the green room after? Just asking for a friend.

  • KaBoomBOX

    would die for a Ru/Gaga duet.

  • Kruhn

    La Gaga and La Ru in one stage? The awesome might overwhelm the airwaves!
