Episode Summary

RuPaul - Supermodel Of The World
RuPaul is an American actor, drag queen, singer, and talk show host. Born RuPaul Andre Charles in San Diego, he moved to Atlanta with his sister while he was in high school. RuPaul performed in nightclubs around Georgia until he moved to New York City in 1989. New York was initially very difficult for RuPaul, who was homeless for a while and partying heavily as the "Queen of Manhattan." RuPaul released his debut album, Supermodel of the World (Tommy Boy), in 1993. Around the same time, his "glamazon" look was developed by his make-up artist and his costume designer. "Supermodel (You Better Work)" became an international hit for RuPaul, on MTV, in the clubs, and on the charts. He recorded a duet with Elton John, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart," which was RuPaul's biggest hit on the UK Singles Chart. To date RuPaul has released nine albums, including Foxy Lady (Rhino, 1996), a Christmas album Ho, Ho, Ho (Rhino, 1997), Red Hot (RuCo, Inc., 2004), and his most recent album, Glamazon (RuCo, Inc., 2011).moreless
