I love drag. I always have; when I was about five years old I apparently watched the classic drag movie The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert so often that the tape of the VHS wore out. Now, 16 years later, I watch just about everything online, so there’s no problem if I want to watch the same thing over and over, like I’ve done with the first season of “Rupaul’s Drag U.”

If you care about RuPaul’s Drag Race at all then get ready to get jealous boogers…I met the queens of Season 3, well some of the queens, at the press event before the finale! I got so close to my girl Alexis “BAM BAM BAM” Mateo that I could see the contour make-up stripes down her nose.

Before The Real World, Horrible Housewives or Jersey Shore Jerks, there was An American Family. Back in the early 70’s, the idea of reality TV was born when a documentary filmmaker decided to ask the Loud family from Santa Barbara California, if he could film their daily lives and air it on PBS. Anyone who grew up in the 70s will remember the long, sometimes fascinating, sometimes boring, grainy episodes of American Family that aired, and the two characters ... Read More

I won’t lie, you will definitely find Lil Wayne in my iTunes library, but these fabulous little ladies of Watoto From the Nile do make a point. In fact, most of today’s hip-hop is overloaded with misogynistic lyrics and Lil Wayne is guilty. Their song “Letter to Lil Wayne,” is recorded over his track “Single” where their innocent voices challenge his inappropriate behavior and disrespect to women.
These girls who, by the ... Read More
