RuPaul has released a new song taking aim at former Drag Race contestants. His new song Blame It On The Edit is not holding back.
After a string of former contestants have hit back at the show’s editors, Rupaul is clapping back.
‘I’d say bullshit’
It first started back at the All-Stars 2 reunion when Phi Phi O’Hara refused to appear for the reunion program.
In a not-so-subtle move, Rupaul instigated the “Bullshit” signs for the queens on the show.
It was his first and most public attempt at addressing claims from former contestants like O’Hara that they had been misrepresented by the edit on the program.
He famously opened the episode by stating “If one of you were to say ‘I blame the edit’ I’d say ‘bullshit.’ Before inviting the other queens to call out any such behavior.
Fast forward almost seven years and after several contestants including Phi Phi O’Hara and The Vixen have made claims against the editing, Rupaul is speaking out.
You said what you said
RuPaul is no stranger to releasing music associated with Drag Race.
In fact, we all know his music production is closely tied with the show’s production schedule.
Countless seasons have seen the promotion of Rupaul hits like Cover Girl and Sissy That Walk.
However, Blame It On The Edit comes in-between seasons and seems to be taking aim at queens worldwide.
“All these shows around the world and everywhere we go. You’ll never meet another bitch as salty as these hoes.”
His opening line is pretty direct, it’s not just US queens, but international contestants as well.
“She wanna blame it on the edit, you the one who said it.” He sings matter of factly.
It’s pretty clear from the rest of the song, Rupaul is taking no prisoners.
“You already know who I am, you know what the f*ck I do. So why they all in my house, they lyin on my production crew. Baby nice to know if they throw you a bone, you the type comin back with a attitude.”
There’s no mistaking the message from Rupaul on this one. If you said it, you said it, there’s no-one else to blame.
Former contestants hit back at Rupaul
Some former contestants however are still not sharing the same attitude to the situation as Rupaul.
While many on Twitter are living for the drama of this new song, others are not so happy.
Former contestant The Vixen has continued to be vocal following their appearance on the program.
After famously walking out during their reunion episode and refusing to participate The Vixen has continued to be a public critic of Rupaul and the Drag Race franchise.
After hearing of the new song they took to Twitter to express their opinion of the new track.
So if we can’t blame the edit, we shouldn’t be awarding the editors then. Time to give the emmys to the queens who said what they said right?
