RuPaul On His Great Love
The Advocate reports:
RuPaul says the great love of his life is someone he’s split with and who owns a ranch in Wyoming, according to an interview with Access Hollywood.
“There’s a man… we were committed for many years,” the host of Logo’s RuPaul’s Drag Race says. “We split up, but we’ve never really quite split up. He is the love of my life. He has a ranch in Wyoming.”
RuPaul explains that his idea of a relationship has changed over the years. “As you get older, you realize that sort of the form that relationships take on, ones you grew up with, you grow out of that,” he says. “You become more relaxed. He is my partner for life, but if I need to have burnt toast with another gentleman other than Jimmy and Judge Judy, then so be it.”

RuPaul Sounds Off On Obama & The Word “Tranny”
The Huffington Post’s Gay Voices reports:
The new season of ”RuPaul’s Drag Race,” which begins on January 30 on Logo, is “Gaga-esque,” with the competing queens displaying themselves as “crunchy or monstery or moist,” explains the drag icon and entertainer RuPaul himself. “They speak reality TV so fluently. They don’t even have to be produced. They’re ready to roll.”
In an interview with SiriusXM OutQ and HuffPost Gay Voices, RuPaul talked all about the popular reality show in which drag queens face off, kicking off its fourth season, and he weighed in on other matters, including the the latest queer controversies, offering comments which are bound to have people talking.
Of the ABC sitcom, "Work It," in which two straight men dress in drag in order to get jobs and whichhas been criticized by gay and transgender activists for mocking transgender women, RuPaul implores the activists: “Don’t take life so seriously… We live in a culture where everyone is offended by everything.”
On Lance Bass’s apology for using the word ”tranny,” Rupaul says: “It’s ridiculous! It’s ridiculous!… I love the word “tranny”…And I hate the fact that he’s apologized. I wish he would have said, ‘F-you, you tranny jerk!’”
And RuPaul has some observations about presidential politics: “Politicians are really like show people, people in show business — except that they have not as good costumes in politics. You have to appeal to the masses in show business. You appeal to Betty and Joe Beer Can. For someone like Obama to survive — he’s a very smart man — he’s had to do some dumb things because people don’t want the truth. It’s the same thing with drag.”

RuPaul Not Glad About GLAAD
The Advocate reports:
The omission of RuPaul’s Drag Race and The A-List: New York for GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Media Award nominations for Outstanding Reality Program has the drag diva and the A-listers up in arms.
“RuPaul thinks she deserves to be at the awards and she shouldn’t have to share the spotlight with Heidi Klum, who was nominated forProject Runway, because Heidi isn’t gay,” an insider told the New York Daily News.
Sources gave the paper conflicting reports regarding the nominations, such as that Logo didn’t submit the shows for nominations and that GLAAD felt the shows were poor representations of LGBT people.

Boy Culture reports:
RuPaul is speaking outto Socialite Life about—among other things—which ladies are still very much desired as judges on Drag Race:
"I sure would love to have Cher on the show. She understands drag more than anyone. She’s been doing it forever and I know she doesn’t do that kind of thing—she doesn’t even watch reality shows—but I think she’d be fantastic! A lot of the women who have inspired queens throughout the years I’d love to get on—Diana Ross, Deborah Harry, Madonna—all of the real girls, queens who launched a thousand queens…But today the only person who I absolutely live for, who I worship at her feet is Judge Judy! I worship that woman!"
I watch the show anyway, but seeing a panel featuring Cher, Diana, Debbie, Madonna and Judy would be anything but a drag!
