RuPaul

Drag queen extraordinaire RuPaul has some harsh words for het women who throw bachelorette parties in gay bars.

While promoting the new season of his wildly popular drag show RuPaul's Drag Race, RuPaul said straight women should stop using gays as "accessories" to serve them.

With love, RuPaul gently reminded straight women that he is a drag queen by trade -- not your goto makeup artist or stylist.

"So I’m a brown-skinned gay man. You know, I do drag. Early on, I learned that I could do it well and make money. So people automatically ask me about beauty tips. And I get kids who write me and say, ‘I wish you could do my makeup for my prom?’ Or, ‘I wish you could do my makeup for my wedding?’ I’m like, ‘Bitch, I’m not a makeup artist. I’m an enter-taint-er! OK?'"

He continued:

"Check yourself before you wreck yourself. You know, this is an important thing: People who live in the mainstream and the status quo think that everyone else is there to serve them."

He added:

"That’s what gay guys are, right? You’re an accessory for my straight life.’ Just because your limited view is that everyone’s there to serve you and that you’re the only person in the world. It doesn’t work that way."

    ??? The title has me confused.

  • kennedy campbell

    het=heterosexual if that helps???

  • Kbellaluvvs

    I'm confused he likes to dress like women for entertainment but women shouldn't be at his shows because he doesn't serve us?? I love me some Ru but I don't get this logic...

  • Soda

    Me too. Seems to me he's annoyed with anyone who asks him to do something other than what he wants to do. I was ready to snap back that women don't want non-het men using our sex as a disguise for their fantasy life or entertainment.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Sound's like Auntie is tired of the straighties hogging the tables at her fave local spots.

  • Django the God

    I can picture her dancing around singing 'Controlla' with shades on.

  • bemetoo

    thats right ms thang tell us how you really feel

  • Django the God

    He lives on a 200 acre ranch, he's bad and bourgeois.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Like....

  • PrettyBrown28

    The article doesn't speak of bachelorette parties at gay clubs.

  • Torae

    But his whole act is imitating women? his whole logic is off and it's typical.

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    I disagree I think gay men use straight women to meet men and to learn how to act like women by studying their actions and behavior.

  • RVAMade

    I love me some momma Ru but I do not use gay men and or women as accessories. I treat everyone according to how they treat me. With that being said the people in my life that are a part of the lgbtq community I consider them family not an accessory

  • bemetoo

    getting all those cowboys milk

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    These Optimus prime transformers don't really like REAL Women. I've been saying this for a while.

  • Cali

    Major side eye at his comments, but those pics above are gorgeous, he has such a beautiful face.

  • Django the God

    Hahahaha!

  • Mrs. B. Y.

    I don't get your confusion. He stated that people need to stop asking him about makeup advice and such. He didn't say anything about women not going to see his shows.

  • Mrs. B. Y.

    I don't think him or most gay men *hate* women. They are not sexually attracted to us so they get a bit more catty when talking about or to us. They have no need to be nice or mince words bc their primary goal isn't to get in bed with women later.

  • Rayne

    I don't care about folks being however they were born ?...or whatever. Treat me good you get the same in return. I'm just not really that into who ppl sleep with. Me and my old man trying to make room for his tool belt and rusty knuckles. ??

  • Genia

    I get what he's saying...it's equivalent to someone none black asking a black person , how to fry chicken. Or asking a Jamaican where you can get some weed. Or asking an Asian person if they can thread your eyebrows

  • hottlanta

    He said nothing about Lawrence pimping himself on Kenya's arm for his come up. We knew nothing about him before her. He said nothing about Dwight and Neigh Neigh where they pimped each other. She pimped him to make a name for herself in the gay community and he pimped her so he could have his television exposure as well. Makeup advice really. Get over yourself. Ain't nobody trying to walk around with a 5 lb bag of cake flour on their face. He has made his money off straight women and now trying to talk a lot of smack. Straight women will never learn. Straight women need to stop giving gay people fake praise like "you look good" to keep from being labeled homophobic when they look a hot mess.

  • Panther Charleston

    His rough-and-tumble teenage gay girl is spot on.

  • Panther Charleston

    Baaaaby, you know it does. ? (Het)

  • Ms.Caramel

    People with mental illness will always be used like that if they're in public.

  • YellowSauce

    I'm not sure who he was talking to ... he said mainstream and status quo so I'm thinking there is some diva he may be speaking to .. none the less gay men usually the feminine types LEARN from WOMEN ... especially in the beginning stages stealing stockings and dresses ... playing in their mother's closets and make up like little girls in fact their entire persona IS THAT OF WOMEN so I don't think he was directing this to women in general ... I mean there are too many FEMALE BEAUTY BLOGGERS for him to feel like he's the only one being asked for beauty tips .. industrial make up is different from what you buy in duane reade lol he must be having his fake period today and could probably benefit from a nap ... I actually prefer to stay away from gay men ...they lie A LOT and KEEP drama going ( aka making you think EVERYBODY is gay ) ... anywho passive agressive he was indirectly talking to a specific person will we ever know probably not lolololol 2017 The Year Of The Sneak Diss lolololol AND THEN he posts it ... #LAMEPAUL #EMOTIONSONLINE lol

  • Kbellaluvvs

    The title stated that RuPaul has a message for het women who throws bachelorette parties in gay bars.

  • Rob

    No lies told. Preach Ru!

  • Ms.Caramel

    And then think they can be better women than real women.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    You peeped that too! That Lawrence come up!!!? He was on watch what happens live a few weeks ago and he was so watered down, I was underwhelmed.

  • Ms.Caramel

    I also think he's saying I'm an entertainer. I'm not here to work. I don't wanna help out..lol

  • KarmaBackAround

    HA! I see what u did there!

  • KarmaBackAround

    I tend to not take advice from grown men with mental illnesses that makes them dress as women.. also I prefer a woman who knows I want to look like a WOMAN and not like I'm n DRAG to beat this face honey... move around RU!

  • KarmaBackAround

    and smellin like spritz with them pineapple finger waves!

  • hottlanta

    I have had gay men friends in my life before it became fashionable to treat them as if they were one of my girlfriends has never crossed my mind and for them to treat me as if I was one of their gay friends never cross their minds as well. We just respect each other and keep it moving. I stay out of all of my friend's bedroom and they stay outta mine's. That way we remain friends for a long time.

  • the guest

    Rupaul is BRILLIANT. A proud BLACK MAN who embraces his manhood, is a handsome and well presented man, and places female impersonation in proper perspective as entertainment.

    What he's saying here, all black people can relate too in the fact white people think blacks are alive to entertain and serve them.

  • Django the God

    I think she said her hair is natural now.

    Have you seen her Facebook photo?

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Well you got lucky, bc the ghey's I'm around are in competition with women and hate other gays especially "queens". Most of my gay friends like to be the only "girl" in the room and when another "girl" enters the room, it's automatically a shade show competition. It's confusing to me, I just be there for the drinks and a good kee kee!

  • hottlanta

    Make up advice. Really Ru go somewhere and sit down, I never seen your show and from what I just saw I never will. They look a hot mess,

  • Malcom Flex

    He's got a hell of a lot of nerve his whole career is based on biting off of women.

  • Ridingfinest

    Take several seats RU....your not as hot as you use be....everybody gay today...lol

  • hottlanta

    My gay friends say that the one's that go around flaming all over the place are embarrassing. I was like wow. They said if you gay you are gay you don't have to prove anything to anyone and who cares. They called them ghetto and everything. I have seen it when there is one gay guy in the room getting the attention and when another one enters the room you can feel the vibe changing. I guess my friends are confident in themselves and don't have time for the drama.

  • hottlanta

    Wow no comment about the missing black kids in DC and the hate crime the white guy did in New York looking to purposely kill a black man. Like I always say the LTGBQ community remains silent when it is someone else.

  • KarmaBackAround

    noooo i must find it now!!! right now!! lol

  • hottlanta
  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    LOL that's what I'm saying, they be on that Tyra chit, "There can only be one!"

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Spritz!!!!! Havn't heard that term in a coon's age! Think they callin' it edge control now LOLOL!

  • KarmaBackAround

    u know they always tryin to change the name of our old school products.. that edge control too greasy.. give me some "pump it up" spritz anyday lmao

  • VioletRose Butterfly

    I see a bunch of Black women on TV emulating and associating with mentally ill f* g s on Bravo every Sunday. Show me the White women you are talking about.

  • Iraizehell

    So the same jack ass that wants to be a woman oh so bad has a problem with actual straight women? So u can come in our world but we should stay out of yours. Go figure.

  • Mrs Mary

    Hey Rupaul...how about you stop stealing my makeup, shoes and clothes...you can have the girldle though! (roll eyes)

  • Iraizehell

    Your exactly right. They could give a danm about anything outside of their community.

  • Iraizehell

    Ummmm what manhood. From this post he sounds like a b*tch to me. He impersonates the same gender he obviously has a problem with.

  • Lisa daniels

    He dresses like a woman to pay the rent but when it is paid the wig goes on the doorknob and heels and dresses go in the closet unlike Brucat who swear he a real woman. Ru knows that he is a man.

  • Lisa daniels

    I actually prefer to stay away from gay men ...they lie A LOT and KEEP drama going ( aka making you think EVERYBODY is gay ) .***** You know, there are do some lesbians that act just like that. Ijs. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/68bc52b2a4f54f3dc0d4dea29ec0c12c203c19b65d4d18beb2fbbd13d0be6a55.gif

  • Lisa daniels

    Dead @ coon's age. Lordt???

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I had a run in with this shady b/tch! I read him for filth and he ran to get security. ?

  • the guest

    In society white people are conditioned to think black people are to serve them. I've never seen a reality show only the coverage on SR about the different characters. So I I don't know what's on Bravo on Sundays.

  • dontgetblocked

    I had to google "het". It means heterosexual. Mr. 90s Rupaul needs to settle his azz down.

  • Judas & GOD

    careful the straight angry women will get you lol

  • Judas & GOD

    u madd because he prettier than you even in drag?? Girl u too sensitive

  • Judas & GOD

    thank you to clarify that

  • Lovely1

    Ok, so...FIRST of all Mr RuPaul...smh He has shows like RHOA and Watch what happens live to thank.

  • Omandesert

    Maybe he should be the gender God made him and stop the female act.

  • Maxima

    What a b*tch! Hey, let all the women stop watching his show, let his ratings fail and then HE/SHE will just be an accessory....

  • Iraizehell

    Lmao he will never look better than me. Try again with something more original. That was almost good.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Valid points.

  • datATLboi

    LMAO....some of ya'll JUST read the headlines huh?

  • Judas & GOD

    then you're probably blind...but self-esteem is everything and i give u that lol

  • Mrs. B. Y.

    That title was a joke. SR was being facetious. If you went on to read the actual statements, he didn't even mention bachelorette parties lol

  • Kbellaluvvs

    I read the whole article I thought he may have mentioned that part on the actual show.
    No biggie..

  • Kilroy

    How is this valid? Many gay makeup artists work for female entertainers. Get outta here with this crap.
    Just say no thanks if someone asks you to do their makeup and take it as a compliment instead of bleeding out cha male butt as Earl Carter said.?

  • Maxima

    TRUTH ALL DAY!!

  • Peter Piper ATL

    RuPaul is intelligent, deep thinking and very witty and he made a point. But this is an issue that's a lot more complicated than it seems at face value.

    I also would like to point out that RuPaul is probably not singling out black women in this conversation because he gave up on y'all a long time ago. RuPaul is all about the whities and has been since the 1980s. But I can't really blame him: aside from aunties catching a "sissy show" at the local after hours ghetto club, and not to mention the over-the-top, flamboyant hairstylist around the corner, a lot of black women have little use for black gay men who dress in drag, and RuPaul understands this.

    But it goes both ways. Gay men need to stop expecting straight women to fully immerse themselves in the gay experience in order to appreciate a good drag show or an occasional chit chat with an acquaintance.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    He made a few good points, it just should have been said better. As a woman. I'm somewhat offended ?

  • YellowSauce

    I stay away from gay women too lol

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Mmm... I like that analysis. Very insightful.

  • anjanette b

    ???????????????.....

  • Maxima

    Ru Paul is an OLD HEAD Queen from way back and those old gay men always hated women. Gay men stopped, for the most part but not totally, their hatred of women after the AIDS crisis, because all they could rely on was their cousins, sisters, aunts, mothers, etc. Not even their fellow gays wanted to be around them once they got AIDS.

  • JJSPLAYHOUSE

    I can't read any of the article thanks to that stupid AD that keeps pushing my screen back to the top?

  • BlackGirls EatGreen

    Point taken, now all you Queens, you can also stop using Black women as an accessory, with all the excitement, drama and false flattery every time a sista roll into work wearing something cute, meanwhile you really hate their azz and working on getting with their job or man, or both. We see you too Boo, bloop.

  • JanusMaximus

    This catty-ass bish should appreciate the fact that he's getting complimentary letters from adoring fans. He doesn't have to hit them with weird accusatory bullshit. Newsflash mufugga: Entertaining is a form of servitude. You are serving yourself to the public on a platter. And aren't you using your fans to pay the bills? Aren't they serving you by being your audience?

  • JanusMaximus

    I like his Mom tattoo tho

  • Ro

    what is he like 12 in this pic?

  • Mssugamoma

    ? snap crackle and pop! ?

  • Tea??

    Stfu Ru you made millions off of impersonating women you should be flattered.

  • Deppa Kote

    Who the hell is saying these bachelorette party women are fans of his who pay his bills? From my experience in talking to these women, they are strictly at gay bars b/c it's "a lark" to be at a gay bar and there are no straight guys there to bug them. Gay people aren't props or accessories for these women and that is what Ru is talking about. Yes, there are women who watch his show and are fans but his core audience is gay men

  • Deppa Kote

    nice to stereotype, idiot. Somehow, you think you know ALL gay people and what is up w/ them and what they're all about? Get real.

  • Deppa Kote

    ?? Your comment isn't even on point. He is talking about bachelorette parties storming into gay spaces, acting obnoxious and taking over. I've seen the reaction of blacks or latinos when white hipsters start to gentrify their hood and eventually take over. No one likes that. Same thing here.

  • Deppa Kote

    You dont get it. He is talking about these girls night out parties that storm into and invade gay bars and act like they own the place. I've seen it and its obnoxious and entitled.
    As I've said, have you seen the reaction of people from black or latino hoods when they're neighborhood gets taken over/gentrified by white hispters? They dont like it. Same situation here. Not sure how you dont get that?

  • Jayde da Blade

    Ummm ppl ask anyone questions WHO is good at something they just want a lil advice i don't think g a y has much to do with it

  • Guess Who

    NlGGA PLEASE.

    YOU MADE YOUR ENTIRE FORTUNE BY PLAYING IN MAKEUP AND WEARING WOMEN'S CLOTHING...and now you tripping when WOMEN are giving you shine asking you about makeup and whatnot? FOH.

  • Guess Who

    THANK YOU
