Things I Love Thursday - Part 36

In order to get the full effect of this edition of TILT, you must quickly go GO HERE. DO IT PLEASE.

Cool?  OK, so we know I'm obsessed with RuPaul.  But this TILT specifically addresses a new love.


Large and in charge, Chunky yet funky, MISS MISS LATRICE ROYALE.

When she spouted those glorious word above the 5 G's - I had to stop my dvr and take a picture.  I was gobsmacked.

Dida Ritz.  Oh my lord, girl.


This is Latrice.  Now, Latrice done some time, bitches.  He's not ashamed of it.
 He's loud and proud and of course, I love that.
If I hear one more queen talk about "Something Something REALNESS", Imma vomit in my sweater.  Get a new line already ladies!
 
THIS is Latrice's lip sync for you life that kept her in the running, SHE DOESN'T EVEN MOVE AN INCH.  She just owns it.  While Kenya is spazzing out all over the place looking like a right fool.  Oh to have Latrice's confidence, MY GODS. 
 
She didn't win the competition.  Sharon Needles did, which is a whole. nother. level. of love.  LOVE HER.  And I love Chad Michaels too, Phi Phi can go pound sand. She sucked.  But for now, let's leave with a couple quotes from the always classy and in charge of HERSELF Latrice upon leaving the competition. 
 
 
“You have changed my life forever,” Latrice announced to RuPaul, in front of judges Santino Rice, Michelle Visage, Wynonna Judd, and Rose McGowan and surviving queens Phi Phi, Sharon Needles, and Chad Michaels. “You have changed the world of drag forever. I love you and respect you so much, and thank you for seeing something special in me. Thank you.”
 
You could have mopped me up from the floor.  I was a fucking disaster when she got eliminated.
 
She is so grateful and carries herself with such dignity and class, I fell completely in love with her.
Then in the last show she said to Ru,  "I want people to know its ok to make mistakes; it's ok to fall down. Get up. Look SICKENING and make them eat it."

I mean, need I say anything more?

  4. It makes me sad that I can't watch this show. I'm totally enamored with Queens, and have been since I was about six. When I was little, before understanding the whole concept, I wanted to be one so bad! Now, I just strive to be my fabulous self and make others comfortable enough to be themselves with me, also. And Katy, you do you to perfection, spaztastically, daily. <3

  5. Fabulous. Makes me want cable so I can watch this show. I was just talking to Chris a week or so ago about how much fun drag shows are. I haven't been to one since my lesbian days. It's been ages.

  6. Good golly - I love Latrice. I want to be her. She OWNS it, and WERKS it. Meanwhile, I'm the one in the corner holding everyone's drink and purse and seat while they go dance. *sigh* And the 5 Gs, as well as "Jesus is a biscuit, let him sop you up" are being worked into my vocabulary NOW. How have I missed this gloriousness up til now???

  7. If only we could all "sashay away" with class, when we've been eliminated from something in life...

    What I loved most about this was the video of Latrice... who, as you said, just stood there and owned it. No need to add ANYTHING to who she was. She just stood her ground and allowed her SELF to shine.

    There's a lesson, right there.
