FIN-AL-LY! After some rumors that season 9 could be the last season of Drag Race (made by RuPaul herself) it was refreshing to see the tagline for season nine, Drastic times, call for Dragtastic measures. Now more than ever we need RuPaul’s Drag Race, and I’m probably more excited than ever for season 9. It’s been revealed that Lady Gaga will be on the season premier, which frankly if it’s going to be the last season, I guess that’s a pretty good way to end the series. Honestly it’s sort of odd that she wasn’t on sooner, she/Madonna/Cher seem like obvious candidates, especially during season 8’s Night of 1000 Madonna’s (or like 6 of the same version as it turned out).
I could easily imagine a scenario where Drag Race could continue on virtually forever as new queens are born every minute, but I understand why RuPaul might struggle with keeping up her usual positive demeanor all things considered. I’ve already watched the meet the queens videos and thus far I’m pretty excited for all of them. Farrah Moan is one of my favorites, along with Peppermint whom I had sort of heard of before Drag Race actually, but to be honest a lot of them impress me, and I can’t wait to see how it all goes down. This season there’s 3 queens from Vegas, which is pretty neat to see my city represented so much in this season. Like season 8’s war of the New York Queen’s, this season’s gonna be all about the Vegas queens. I haven’t decided who I’m rooting for this season, (I’ll leave that to the premier in March).
