Stepping out in a chic pink, fitted suit, RuPaul took to the Saturday Night Live stage last night as host.
Ru greeted the enthusiastic audience with a triumphant, “This is fun, right?”
After explaining some RuPaul’s Drag Race jargon, Ru noted that many expected him to make his first appearance in drag. “I am wearing my grandmother’s panties,” he assured the crowd before repeating his famous mantra, “We’re born naked and the rest is drag.”
Perhaps his biggest laugh in the monologue came when the ‘Supermodel of the world’ talked about moving to New York City in the 1980s when the city was filled with drugs, sex workers, and seedy nightclubs. “But it wasn’t all good,” said Ru with a smile.
Check out the monologue below.
Ru also scored in a sketch where he drops in at a San Diego public library for ‘reading’ hour and proceeds to ‘read’ the covers of children’s books for filth.
“Reading is throwing shade – a brutal insult wrapped inside glorious wordplay.”
And the library is open!
Holding up Eloise by Kay Thompson, Ru declares, “Ooh, Eloise! You need to call the front desk and get a hot oil treatment for that broom on your head. And girl, Victoria’s Secret called, they want they wallpaper back. And what is she doing? Popping a fart? Got that leg all dragged out, all nasty. Girl please!”
