So, let’s start with American Idol… why was the hottest and best performer of the season voted off? Pia Toscano was sent home, and everyone wonders what the hell is going on? America, and by that I mean Middle America, you know the center of the country, without it’s arms and legs (i.e., East and West Coast) has really got it wrong, but then again, I guess it’s all those pre-pubescent tween White girls that are actually doing the voting. So, if that hypothesis is correct, then there is no way an overweight yet super gifted Black man can win, yes, I’m talking about the next Luther Vandross, Jacob Lusk or any of the other girls left in the competition. Having said that, my prediction for this show is that James Durban or Stefano Langone duke it out for top prize.
On RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 3, there are three dolls standing, and for the first time, to my pleasant surprise, it’s not a White or Black drag queen…RuPaul, you have redeemed yourself! There’s actually two Asian Pacific queens, Manila Luzon and Raja, and yes amigos a hot Boricua known as Alexis Mateo. I must say, I think this time Asia-Pacific wins, hands down. Both Manila and Raja have been consistent with their looks, their performances and their overall work. I totally have become a fan of Manila; she’s funny, glamorous and plain out awesome. Raja is simply fierce; she thinks out of the box, serves couture, attitude and high fashion in everything she does. Alexis, while she’s great on stage and can certainly lip sync for her life, still lacks something I can’t quite put my finger on. So, who will win? Most likely Raja or Manila. Who do I want to be America’s next drag super star? Either Raja or Manila!
