"May the FIERCE be with you!"

So…what do you do when you’re a 50 year old drag queen whose entire act was stolen by Tyra Banks?

Well, if you’re anything like RuPaul, then you finger snap your way back into the limelight with a reality show that reinvents America’s Next Top Model for drag queens, and follow that up with a brace of new songs as fabulous as Tranny Chaser. And yes, it is as ridiculous as it sounds.

The lead single from the new album “Champion” is fun…

But a bit of a misnomer, and don’t let it put you off. The rest of the album bravely cuts through Ru’s old “You better WORK!” schtick and comes across like the bastard, dragged up lovechild of Madge’s “Confessions on a Dancefloor”, Britney’s “Blackout” and Kanye West’s “808s and Heartbreaks” .

Ergo, it’s quite amazing.

Look behind the improbable weave and lashes and you may have one of the best electro pop albums of the year. Who’da thunk it?

Certainly not poor Tyra…

Anyone who was cool as a kid – LIKE ME, would tune in at 6 pm on Channel 4 for the weekly instalment of BLOSSOM. And her hot brother Joey. Not to mention her best friend Six. Thus creating the desire for a number name. I wanted Four. Jenny would take Nine. The wonder of Blossom didn’t just stop there – Oh no! It was the catalyst for my wardrobe choices, my career choices – just all choices in general.

Clearly Henry Holland felt the same.
