I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

In news that will excite the millions of gay men (and wrestling fans) reading this sentence right now, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced that he will be returning to the WWE after a long absence from the ring. At the moment he’ll only cop to hosting Wrestlemania on April 3, but of course he’s going to wind up in the ring and though I am not a fan of wrestling, I will watch him kick some jabroni ass. So men tell me, do you smeeeeellll what The Rock [dramatic pause] is cookin'? 


I don’t normally post entries of this nature, but something about this drew me in. The feud between Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj just got ugly. Rather, it’s gotten bloody. The new album cover for Kim’s Black Friday, leaves little doubt that the pink-wigged head on the floor is an allusion to Kim’s nemesis Nicki Minaj.

The "Black Friday" art is Lil Kim's latest attempt to provoke Minaj, whose debut album, "Pink Friday," sat atop the Billboard 200 chart last week. On a New Year's Eve broadcast, Kim ranted, "I'm not playing with this bitch for 2011. I'm saying, we can rock together but bitch you ain't taking nothing from me!"



This week's competition revolved around how the queens handled themselves in the media. In the mini challenge,RuPaul dared them to scandalize her on the red carpet. We later learned what Ru meant was have a "wardrobe malfunction." In Stacy's case, a lot of something flowed from her bustier. In Carmen's, well, let's just say the garden is looking fine, but the bush could use a trim.

The two winners picked teams and had to deliver some Katie Couric realness with guest judge, original "View" co-host, Debbie Matenopoulos. To be honest, the newscasts were a bit dull. There were a few queens that shined by wielding racial stereotypes as their hilarious entry points. 

Manila was too believable as an Asian roving reporter who couldn't pronounce her "L's" or her "R's." That could have been a problem since she had to interview "The Hills" star Kristin Cavallari, but it wasn't a problem. 

Yara took it right back to the barrio when she played the weather girl. The secret with drag, it seems, is that we don't really need to know what you're saying, as long as you look good (and in this case, funny) while saying it. We'd rather not point the racial stereotypes finger at them either. After all, they're drag queens and their purpose in life is to take our ideas about one another and blow them up to a crazy level.

Matenopoulos and "Big Love's" Chloe Sevigny joined the judging panel and helped send India and Stacy to the bottom two for the same reason. They're not bringing it when it comes to personality.

They kept it classy during the lip-sync for your life unlike Mimi last week. They're old school drag queens and built for the stage thing. We can't hate them for that. Sometimes, one ain't built to be the next RuPaul.

In the end, we feel the right queen left. While Stacy has pops of personality, India was so Miss Wet Blanket 2011. She lacked creativity, plus her makeup is a hot mess. It's like looking at 2007 Oprah Winfrey before her makeup artists realized HD revealed every forced contour.

Do you think Stacy will make good on her promise to break out of her shell next week? Or will it be her hey-sashay?
