The star wattage runneth bright on the drag runway, hunny bees. RuPaul’s Drag Race is now on VH1 and will welcome an all-star guest lineup for its ninth season. In addition to previously announced Lady Gaga, the drag competition will also welcome Meghan Trainor, Kesha, Lisa Kudrow, Tamar Braxton, Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth, and so many more.
The new supertrailer promises a sickening season full of fashion, drama, shade, and legit a queen dressed like a giant peach. We can’t. I mean, I can’t. Can you?
