RuPaul Portrays Emmy Awards Statue in Funny Video Interview - Watch Now!

RuPaul played the Emmy Award statue in a fun video that aired during the 2017 Emmy Awards.

During the sketch, Stephen Colbert asks if they can gossip!

“Tell me about the other award show statuettes. What’s Oscar really like?” Stephen asked.

“He’s cute,” RuPaul responded. “We actually dated for a little while. I had to break it off, I just couldn’t date a man who’s naked all the time holding a sword.”

RuPaul Reflects on Legendary Career & the Future of Drag for 25th Anniversary of 'OUT'

RuPaul is one fierce glamazon on the cover of the 25th Anniversary issue of OUT, out now.

Here’s what the 56-year-old Emmy-nominated RuPaul’s Drag Race icon had to say…

On being a loner as a kid: “I always felt like a quiet kid, but I knew that I had a destiny to be in front of people—whether it was my mother telling me I was gonna be famous, as per the psychic she had seen when she was pregnant with me, or just the other kids in the neighborhood. I was always singled out. I could never blend in—never. Even in my family, I was the only boy, so there was them and then there was me. I like being alone and doing my own thing, but this is my destiny, you know? Being out in front. So I said, ‘OK. I’ll do it.’”

On early success in the industry: “After the success of ‘Supermodel,’ VH1 asked me to present an award at their first fashion awards. The writers wrote something for me, but it was the old drag-queen shtick, very bitchy. I do sassy—I don’t do bitchy—so I rewrote the intro that they had, and it was a hit. In fact, I remember looking at all these people and they are laughing—all my idols: There’s David Bowie! And there’s Tina Turner! There’s Iman! And I could see Madonna right there, not reacting at all, by the way. She’s not even looking at me. And all of the people with her, her stylists and hairstylists, are seated all around her like a cocoon. They’re following her lead and just looking forward, not laughing.”

On the next generation: “At DragCon we get to see all these 13-year-old kids who are gay, straight, nonbinary, whatever, and they are the hope for the future. They don’t have the baggage that people from our generation—or even the generations right before theirs—had. That’s the revolution right there. These kids have their parents bring them to this event, and those parents are my age and younger even. Because all of our girls are so courageous, and they’ve been through so much—you see it on the show—these parents are smart enough to want their kids to learn these same tools to navigate life. Not just what’s happening outside of you but what’s happening inside of you. And I think that’s where the revolution is. It’s an inside job. ”
