Ru fires back at ungrateful Queens in new song: Blame It On The Edit.

I think its an awesome song and the perfect clap back. Maybe its a generational thing however because the kids on Reddit seem to hate it.

Add Vixen, who already is pissed about it.

R1 I also lurk on the dramasub, even though their hated of NBB, my fav queen, gets annoying.

Yes, Reddit is up in arms because they believe a queen’s true personality is the five minutes they can appear pleasant in an interview and their trashy meltdowns are the work of Hollywood magic. They’re already petrified of what it means for their favorites like Vixen and misunderstood altruist Phi Phi or “Jaremi” as they call her.

All reality shows engage in franken-editing in order to create a narrative or to invent conflict between two or more participants for the sake of entertainment as well as to attract viewers.

Of course, R11. But Drag Race queens have abused this knowledge by using it to shrug off some truly reprehensible behavior. They claim to be attacked because of it so we have some fucked up value system where the villains (like Brita) are treated like abused saints while the ones they attacked (like Aiden) are virtually nonexistent.

by Anonymousreply 12October 10, 2021 11:58 AM

Anyone whose ever met or worked with any of the queens in real life can attest that the show is pretty authentic in showing their true personalities, whether they like it or not. Even the ones who were mischaracterized in some way eventually have their real selves known, whether that’s positive like Roxxxy or negative like Alaska (a fucking asshole who finally showed her ass on camera).

You sad queens and your trash TV. It’s hilarious reading the names here, all the drama as if you’re discussing horse trading at the UN Security Council. Then again, none of you in this thread even know what that is, do you? Do any of you here have a high school education? Just asking nicely so please don’t “clap back”. LOL!

It's sort of beneath Ru's brand to do this.

And Ru is always a self-own when she thinks she can sing.

Good news, R20. Ru isn't even pretending to sing here. At best, Ru is pulling a Krusty (see video). At likeliest, all of the "songs" are bits and pieces of prior recordings stitched together by computer.

Wasn't Pearl the one who thought that Ru was going to be his best friend/mentor and got the rude awakening that he was just a on TV show. I think there is one or maybe two queens that Ru finds some kind of connection with each season, but even that doesn't trump good TV in Ru's mind.

[quote]It's sort of beneath Ru's brand to do this.

It's been awfully disappointing to read stories on how he's treated contestants on this show. Especially for someone whose mantra is positivity. I say this as someone who was a huge Ru fan in the 90's. But I've never really gotten into drag race because of how cold and distant he comes off towards the contestants.

And I agree that this is just petty and childish. He gives off Lauren Bacall vibes.

R22 Yeah. Ru gave Pearl the very real and good advice of “nothing you say matters unless the cameras are running”, and then took that as a personal slight. Seeing as how Pearl is probably the most boring of all contestants to make the top 3, you think he would have taken the advice.

by Anonymousreply 26October 10, 2021 3:59 PM

[quote]Ru gave Pearl the very real and good advice of “nothing you say matters unless the cameras are running”, and then took that as a personal slight

That's because it's not advice. It's a power play designed to put the "nobody" in their place.

Ru's smart enough and self aware enough to know how to treat those who admire him and he's certainly been around enough "divas" in his career to know how to do it graciously . (Even many hardcore divas would never pull a stunt like that with their fans) The fact that he chose to say something like that to someone who respects him says more about Ru than it ever does them.

R32, it makes me sick.

Ru has SINGLE-HANDEDLY lifted OVER 100 queens, and let’s face it the fact that many were busted, tragic and complete nobodies, out of poverty and onto bigger and better things.

This doesn’t not even mention all the queens he elevated that were already doing things but on a limited level.

Case in point: Bianca del Rio who better fall to her bow-legged knees every night and thank the lucky stars for RuPaul.

And I don’t even know the names of all these back alley queens who were turning tricks one day and on t.v. the next and want to turn around and use their new fame to come for Ru.

And this is not even mentioning how Ru lifted the ENTIRE GENRE along with him.

The way these fracking leases are set up, you don’t have a choice as far as the ground below the property. Some of these leases are 99 years and inherited. You can undo what you inherited in many cases with these leases.

Long live Ru Paul!

Who and or what is Jaremmi?

by Anonymousreply 36October 10, 2021 9:23 PM

R34 Bianca has stated many times that she is thankful for Ru. And, she seems to be the only Queen (perhaps also Chad) who Ru seems to treat more as an equal than an underling.

I think a lot of it is due to the younger fans. I don’t think they really understand how drag was really on its last leg before Drag Race; it wasn’t even that popular with gays anymore save for pride fest. And, no one ever wanted to fuck a drag queen. They were always considered kind of pathetic.

Ru really did change the game. I think some of the reason why some of the Queens are mad is because they do not have the career that they think they deserve. There are a lot of middle of the pack queens who probably see the success that queens like Bianca and Trixie have and get jealous. I can’t say I don’t understand where that comes from. No one owes you fame but it still has to be hard if you don’t get it while others do. However Trixie and Max are two examples of what to do and not to do. Both were fan favorites who were eliminated middle of the pack. Trixie hustled and became one of the biggest names. Max became bitter and now doesn’t do anything.

The successful queens are thankful for Ru, with the possible exception of Willam who himself even admits that he wouldn’t be where he is today without Ru, and Courtney who was already successful without the show.

There are a few queens who probably are worse for having gone on the show: Sherry Pie, Mimi Imfurst, Venus Delight (who was a popular queen before the show) and Kelly Mantle are the ones who come to mind.

It really is the younger queens, who don't get drag. Drag is, or it was, messy and raw. Nasty and unapologetic. You weren't going to find suburban moms and their teen daughters at drag shows. You know it tears Ru's heart out every time she has bend to the latest politically correct trend in drag. I guess at this point she could walk away, but the money's too good and she really doesn't care what happens on a TV show. In her real life, she still does what she wants.

And you can tell every season Ru seems to connect with the queens who are either really messy or who make him laugh (sometimes both). I think that's why he still does it, for those Heidi Closet and Silky types whose lives really are changed by the show.

But none of these young bitches could have survived when drag was drag. The days of young RuPaul and Lady Bunny, those bitches went through it. And now they like to call Ru old and out of touch. Please.

Are reporters camped outside each of Willam's homes to get his first hot take on the song?

by Anonymousreply 40October 11, 2021 12:00 AM

R36, “Jaremi” is the name Phi Phi O’Hara tried to hide behind after she humiliated herself on National TV, obliterated her brand, and proved herself to be unemployable. It was a failed relaunch for her as a male-presenting singer that most people laughed off, but her psycho defenders still use that to refer to her and get very angry if you don’t l.

If you see Jaremi pop up, you know you’re dealing with someone who absolutely believes the edit is a lie and would probably be engaged to a criminal they met in some lock up pen pal program.

R40 He surprisingly hasn’t said anything yet. Probably will on the next episode of his and Alaskas podcast. So far, just perpetually angry and ugly the Vixen and always whinnying Canadian drag race loser Ilona Verly, who hasn’t even met Ru, have said something.

Kelly Mantle is a working actor, not a club queen. She was very funny and self-deprecating about being the first boot on S6. I'd love to see her in an early-outs season.

Sherry Pie showed up last month at Uncle Charlie's in NYC to deliver a singing telegram to a customer, creating a huge PR mess for the club to clean up.

Mimi Imfurst had a decent post-RPDR career until she got cancelled for sexually harassing twinks who were starting out in the Philly drag scene. She used to run a local Drag Race–style competition called Drag Wars.

Agree that Venus D-Lite would have been better off not having gone on the show. She used to have a regular gig doing her Madonna impersonation in LA, but she told Jonny McGovern that after S3 her local bookings dried up. She definitely hasn't dealt well with her inability to capitalize on being a RuGirl, plus her cringey attempts to stay in the spotlight with reality show appearances and "projects" like this one haven't helped.

r39, everything changes. Drag is not what you remembered what it was like in your youth just because it was your youth. There was drag long, long, long before you were born, and it was different then from what it was from what you remember in the 80s. It has since changed yet again.

by Anonymousreply 54October 12, 2021 6:49 PM

Of course everything changes. Life should evolve and drag should most definitely evolve, but don't bite the hand that is trying to help you change your life. If Ru is dated and out of touch and stuck in the old ways and represents the past, then don't apply to be on his show. If your drag is the shit and everybody is lined up around the block to see you, then why do you need Ru?

by Anonymousreply 55October 12, 2021 7:25 PM

R51 That is kind of sad for Venus. I would love for her to get on the show again.

As for Mimi, I read the so-called harassing messages and they were nothing. The twinks were messaging back and forth and never said they were uncomfortable. If another queen was involved in that drama they would probably not have been canceled.
