Well, yesterday my Real Talk director Ron and I went to do our video interview with Ru Paul (see below), who was in San Francisco promoting his new film "STAR BOOTY" and the accompanying soundtrack of the same name.
Ru Paul is the first drag queen to have his/her own network talk show on VH1, s/he has also been interviewed by Barbara Walters and is the first and only man to secure a major cosmetics contract and was one of the inaugural spokes persons for MAC VIVA GLAM.
Ru paul also has a life sized image of himself in the entrance of Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in NYC, standing in a water fountain and a collection of miniature sized Ru Paul dolls designed by Jerry Woo.
The event was held at Medium Rare records in San Francisco's Castro district. For those of you who don't know about Medium Rare Records, it is as small as a shoe box but has one of the most amazing collections of dance, disco, 80's, and old school classics around.
When we arrived the line was already forming. We then got word that Ru Paul's flight was delayed and that we would have to wait another 45 minutes or so. So we hob nobbed with Betty from Betty's List and internationally known photographer Steven Underhill.
When Ru Paul finally arrived, the line was down the street and around the corner. I was prepared to conduct a much longer interview, but out of respect for the beloved fans who waited so long to see Ru Paul, I cut my interview short.
Thank you Ru Paul for being so wonderful and so beautiful and now that we have connected, I am never letting you go!
Enjoy the interview.
