Amazing new album by RuPaul!

RuPaul

So RuPaul has been one of my favorite artists for years now.¬† I remember showing my mom how to sashay and shante in the kitchen to Ru’s “You Better Work” when I was a little boy ūüôā

RuPaul is probably one of the most under-appreciated artists of our time.¬†¬† Some of her songs are a bit niche in that they speak to the LGBT community very directly (for example, Tranny Chaser…the song is genius) but overall, each album makes you want to get up and DANCE HUNTY!!

Through the years, Ru has come out with some AMAZING albums.¬† Champion and Glamazon are hands down two of my favorite albums EVER.¬† You can check out all of Ru’s albums here.¬† I promise, you’ll ask yourself why these albums were not on the top of the charts.¬† Download Born Naked here or check it out on Spotify or Amazon.

Born Naked is Ru’s latest and is just GENIUS.¬† The first song, “Freaky Money” will certainly make you want to get up and dance.¬†¬† VERY NYC.¬† “Sissy That Walk” will also get you up and dancing.¬† What I love about Ru’s albums is that you can listen all the way through and not get bored.¬† My favorite song on the album is “Let the Music Play”, a duet with Michelle Visage.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Madonna’s open letter to Russia

There has been a lot of news recently surrounding Russia’s public and shameful anti-gay stance. ¬†Several celebrities have spoken out publicly on the topic. ¬† Ricky Martin, Lady GaGa, Wentworth Miller, Cher and¬†Greg Louganis are just a few of the people who have said WTF?!?!

Madonna just released the following open letter asking her supporters to “fight against the Russian government’s campaign of hate”. ¬†Madonna has recently joined HRC’s ‘Love Conquers Hate’ campaign. ¬†You can support the FABULOUS HRC campaign HERE by ordering a t-shirt (DO IT!!).

Here is what lady M had to say.

Right now in Russia, LGBT people… are being targeted by hateful new laws that outlaw support for LGBT equality. Even with the 2014 Sochi Olympics just a few months away, fair-minded Russians are facing fines, harassment, and violence at the hands of thugs.¬†

“At this dangerous moment in Russian history, we as advocates have a responsibility to speak up and take our hopeful message global. That’s why I’m joining HRC’s Love Conquers Hate campaign, in hopes that more and more fair-minded people around the world will stand up and fight against the Russian government’s campaign of hate…¬†

“The goal of these hateful laws (in Russia) is to leave LGBT Russians feeling isolated. Worthless. Completely alone. Together, we can send a message to LGBT Russians that the world is on their side, and that those who seek to support them aren’t alone in this fundamental fight for fairness. It’s time for love to conquer hate everywhere, for everyone. I hope you’ll stand with me in this fight.”
