RuPaul's Don't Be Jealous of My Boogie must not be missed! The video is based upon the Grand Finale of season two of RuPaul's Drag Race.

RuPaul is a good entertainer that makes me interested in drag, but you know I'm interested in ice skating, too. I don't think I'd ever do either one. I'm more of a voyeur. Some of Ru's lady boys are awfully attractive, and all of them are fascinating in their androgyny or femininity. Drag, I find, involves a lot of hard work. I could not begin to master the art of make-up, let alone fashion; I can scarcely pick out matching clothes. I don't know more than a dozen colors.

RuPaul's show is like boot camp for drag queens. Ru makes his little queens perform all kinds of zany stunts for a chance to win $100,000. Most of Ru's challenges involve celebrity impersonations, comedy, acting, public speaking, dancing, and always dressing up. I could do any of those things like I can fly to the Moon. Well, public speaking I could handle--I've made strides in that area--but not the others.

In season two of RuPaul's Drag Race, Tyra was among the prettiest competitors, but surely the most polished, mature and cunning. I didn't like her at first--she came off as obnoxious singing aloud with the earphones on--trying to distract her competitors--underhanded--aggressive--but she grows on the viewer. She understood the value of silence, and I think she has more brains than people give her credit for. I liked her, but I also liked Pandora's Boxx and Jujube. Raven talked ill of others too much to be liked, but she was talented no doubt. I thought Raven deserved to be number two, but there is a coldness in Raven that equates to a lack of grace. (Raven cuts a far more sympathetic figure in the first episode of All Stars.) Pandora's Boxx was underrated by the other competitors--they did not get her quirkiness. I think she has good potential as a comedian and needs practice performing at a higher level. With proper guidance... but perhaps she lacks the killer instinct that Tyra has. Tatiana was underrated by the others as well. Her performance in the Snatch game was outstanding.
