Just wondering if anyone else on here is a fan?

I have all her albums,singles and remixes.

"Main event" is a choooooon

A real shame the singles never get a proper release here. She never really does any promotion for them which again is a shame as i think she can really compete with whats in the charts right now.

I'm unashamedly a fan! JOMB and Glamazon are my favourites!

Lick it lollipop is another fave although it does sound an awful lot like beyonces run the world

Her albums are my guilty pleasure, and both the Glamazon & Champion albums are actually pretty impressive, solid collections of well crafted, infectious tracks.
I can do without her ballads, but when she's camping it up dance-style, she's a fierce queen.

Totally agree. There are some solid pop tunes on
there but i dont like the ballads.

Loved supermodel, cover girl .... and she is inspirational and flawless. I adore her show 'drag race' - it's such fun. Not that familiar with her recent music other than being played on her show. I also loved her guest vocal on fashion! With Lady Gaga.

Love RuPaul - so much fabulousness! I have a few songs and always dance when they come on my iPod! I'm also addicted to Drag Race, it's my guilty pleasure!

You'll love them. "Main Event" is my favourite off the champion album.

"The beginning" "glamazon" and "i bring the beat" are my favourites off the glamazon album.


She has a new album out "born naked" at the end of the month. I cannot wait

House Of Love! C'mon in! The uptempo numbers far outweigh the dreary ballads.

girl, this thread gives me life! any fan of ru is a friend of mine.

season 6 of drag race has premiered early (although they cut the end off, the charismatic unique nerve-filled talented sons-a-bitches) and there was a song for the runway segment by rupaul with the hook 'sissy that walk', it sounded fabulous and i assume it's from her new album. i gagged.

my all time favourite rupaul songs are main event (my ultimate favourite, the 80s pop remix is great too), champion, glamazon, cover girl, supermodel and off her first album, a shade shady (now prance).

and yes, the high NRG, euro camp, amyl nitrate fuelled dancefloor fillers are infinitely better than the ballads.

Guuuuurl the new album is EVERYTHING. "Sissy that walk" is a already a stone cold classic.

There are 2 ballads on the album "can i get an amen" with martha wash and "let the music play" with michelle visage.

Surprisingly i'm liking the ballads this time around.

This album deserves to be heard and promoted as it is pure pop magic. The producer lucian piane is certainly one to watch.

I read an interview in the guardian with Rupaul where she said that she makes no money from the music and mainstream radio is locked up. That is a real shame.

BUY THE ALBUM

I saw Ru many years ago at G.A.Y. - he had massive platforms on and fell over on stage!

Oh god! I've fallen over in front of people before and it's so embarrassing. Doing it on stage must be so much worse though!

I must confess that, whilst I'm aware Madame has a singing career, and had a couple of singles over here in the 90s, I am ashamed to say thus far unfamiliar with her work.

Out of curiosity, does it genuinely top the one and only Divine's

My car is by Ferrari and my body's Jack La Lanne
My clothes are by Armani and my hair is by Elaine
Tiffany and Cartier are telling me the time
This native love is restless and I'm just not satisfied
And I'll never get enough
Of that native lo-hooove

For hi NRG, kinky booted fabulousness?

Divine is in a league of her own of course.

Its a shame Ru doesn't get any radio play over here or in the states as there are a lot of radio friendly singles on her albums

The duet with Frankmusik has number 1 written all over it

It needs to be released as a single
