I knew I loved you from the first moment I heard your hit tune "Supermodel (You Better Work)." Girl, I just realized that song was released eighteen years ago. If a baby was born on the eve of the release of that song, that child could be buying a gun right now. I'm not even really sure how or when I heard the song for the first time, since I was 11, but I like to think it was at the roller skating rink, where I could sashay and chante to my heart's content.
But then, Ru, you made my dreams come true with what is literally the pinnacle of reality competition-based TV shows, RuPaul's Drag Race. Though its second season is coming to a close, I will hold dear in my heart your words of wisdom throughout the show, such as "Don't fuck it up." Thank you for bringing your charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent to the world.
Ever jealous of your boogie,
