Drag Race finalist Adore Delano follows up her first single "DTF" with "I Adore U", the second track from her new album Till Death Do Us Party, and it's a slow-mo relationship car accident, in reverse.

Said Delano (aka Danny Noriega): “It’s about a boy named Colton Moyer,” she reveals. “He is such an awesome guy. We were dating and I hurt him so bad.”

The video was directed by Ben Simkins of Geek Mythology Productions.

Drag Diva Lady Bunny Weighs In On 'Tranny'

Bunny

In an interview with Paper Magazine, drag personality Lady Bunny spoke on her new show Clown Syndrome and during the interview offered her opinions on the use of the word "tranny". She pulled no punches, saying:

Tranny is an abbreviation for transvestite and transsexual, so I'm free to use it since I fall with that category. Much as blacks can use the N-word. I know tranny from London, where they abbreviate everything -- breakfast is brekkie, biscuit is biccie. Tranny is used affectionately on the club scene. Even transsexual advocates like Jayne County and Kate Bornstein have come out and said that these words aren't necessarily slurs.

[...]

And I'm sick of people thinking they can ban words because they make them feel bad. Boo hoo for you! Any time we choose a different path in life, we're going to get shit for it -- whether you choose to be openly gay, trans or even a straight guy with tattoos all over his face. If you don't have the balls to take s--t, then choose an easy path. And for huge gay organizations like GLAAD to join in to censor Ru or anyone else confuses me. "Gender bender" is on GLAAD's list of banned words. That's what Frank-n-Furter, David Bowie and Sylvester were--that's not a slur except to the most precious, uptight goody two-shoes.


RuPaul Throws Shade at LOGO Over 'Tranny' Debate: 'I'm Still Paying the F--kin' Light Bill Over There'

RuPaul reignited debate over use of the word "tranny" on Friday in an interview with Marc Maron in which he blasted activists coming at him for using it.

RupaulSaid Ru in the interview:

...it is not the transsexual community. These are fringe people who are looking for story lines to strengthen their identity as victims. That is what we’re dealing with. It’s not the trans community, because most people who are trans have been through hell and high water and they know -- they've looked behind the curtain at Oz and went, 'Oh, this is all a f**king joke. But, some people haven't... You know, if your idea of happiness has to do with someone else changing what they say, what they do, you are in for a f**king hard-ass road.

Shortly thereafter, Buzzfeed published a statement from a spokesman at LOGO, the network which airs RuPaul's Drag Race, distancing the network from the remarks:

“These comments did not come from Logo. We are committed to supporting the entire LGBT community and will not feature any anti-trans rhetoric on our shows.”

RuPaul took to Twitter the following day and made it clear that Drag Race is the network's bread and butter and can't afford to distance itself from him. He also had a few more things to say on the topic:

Forget an outside threat, the “Gay Movement” will eat itself from the inside out...Orwell’s book “Animal Farm”: The pigs didn’t really want a revolution, they just wanted to BE ‘Farmer John’...The absurdity! It’s as if Jay Z got offended by Kanye using the word “Nigga”...It’s not the word itself, but the intention behind the word...

...Trust! @LogoTV hasn’t “distanced” itself from me, not while I’m still payin’ the f%kin’ light bill over there...I’ve been a “tranny” for 32 years. The word “tranny” has never just meant transsexual. #TransvestiteHerstoryLesson...I’m more “offended/hurt” by the misuse of the word “community”...Pop will eat itself... So will the "Gay Movement"


Angelina Jolie Would Be 'Thrilled' If 'Maleficent' Inspired Drag Queens: VIDEO

Jolie

During a UK press conference for the upcoming Maleficent film, Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning were asked their opinions on possible influence that the movie could have on drag queens. Jolie replied,

"I would be thrilled if it's embraced by the drag queens. I think we all share a love of this kind of costume."

Disney villains do seem to have a certain synergy with drag queens. After all, Ursula from The Little Mermaid was inspired by Divine, and vector artist Justin Kohout drew a short series of Drag Race contestants as various villains.

'Drag Race' Finalist Adore Delano is DTF: MUSIC VIDEO

Dtf

Fresh on the heels of last night's Drag Race finale comes Adore Delano's debut single "DTF".

Said Delano of the track: “I always wanted to create a hoodrat raunchy song. ’DTF’ is grimy, pop, hood sh-t. I'm really excited because the sound is unlike anything else out there. It isn’t rap. It’s more baby talking like a thirsty slut."

Adore's objection of laundromat affection is Max Emerson.
