Hello, hello, hello! We’re in the thick of the holiday season and your favorite slay belles are here to spread some holiday cheer.
Santa Ru has snuck down the chimney a little early and left us a special treat with a brand new season of Drag Race and there’s some fierce competition in store for you. The queens are sharing gifts of music, with holiday tunes from Priyanka and Rosé (and a classic from Nina West) and fifty of laughter, with new videos from Bob, Trixie and Katya.
We also check in with the queens of Canada vs. The World and get the details of Icesis Couture’s shocking departure from the show from the queen herself. We’ve got lots of gifts under our proverbial tree, so let’s bring it to the runway!
Of course, the biggest story of the week was the Ruveal of the 16 queens competing on season 15 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The show is now calling MTV home, with a two-part premiere coming your way on Friday, January 6 at 8/7c on MTV followed by all-new episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked. The queens competing for the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar and a cash prize of $200,000 are Amethyst, Anetra, Aura Mayari, Irene Dubois, Jax, Loosey LaDuca, Luxx Noir London, Malaysia Babydoll, Marcia Marcia Marcia, Mistress Isabelle Brooks, Princess Poppy, Robin Fierce, Salina EsTitties, Sasha Colby, Sugar, and Spice. Meet the queens and get ready for the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent!
Celebrate the holiday season with a classic Christmas cover from siren songstress Rosé. This week she released a spirited new video for her version of “Santa Baby.” “I have always adored ‘Santa Baby’,” Rosé reflects of the classic song. “I love its naughty, sexy mood, and its femininity. My version pays homage to Eartha Kitt’s, Madonna’s, and Gwen Stefani’s but I make the song my own by peppering in some light percussion and a few string moments. Also, my ‘Santa Baby’ is almost 100% vocal, and the voice is of a cis man.” Check out the video and share the holiday cheer.
Remember the Christmas specials of days gone by? Relive the celebrity-packed extravaganzas of the1970s with the hilarious Making The Yuletide Gay: A Very Special Paul Lynde Christmas. Along with Michael Airington playing the Hollywood Squares favorite, the special includes appearances from drag icons Lady Bunny and Jackie Beat. We’re also treated to a tune by Evie Harris (played by Jack Plotnick – and if you haven’t seen Girls Will Be Girls, do yourself a favor and seek it out.)
Canada’s Drag Race’s season one champion Priyanka gives us a double dose of cheer with her Christmas tune “Sleigh My Name.” Here’s the festive and fierce video.

Gottmik and Violet Chachki take on the topic of all things Christmas on the latest episode of “No Gorge.”

Bob is back with another makeup tutorial but, instead of following along with a video, he learns how to create Bosco’s signature eyebrows with the diva herself.
It would be rude to to tune into the latest episode of “UNHhhh” as Trixie and Katya talk about nasty neighbors, inconsiderate movie theater talkers and lots more.
