Looking Good, Feeling Gorgeous

Many happy returns today to the spectacular RuPaul!

Statuesque, ground-breaking diva that she is, RuPaul hit our screens in the early 90s as a "star" of the weirdo Public Access TV show Manhattan Cable - a weekly freakshow that made compulsive viewing, and also launched the careers of such luminaries as Margarita Pracatan...

But chart success with Supermodel (You Better Work) changed RuPaul from cult status to an outrageous disco diva, idolised by queens on both sides of the channel! Her success since then has been intermittent, but her version of It's Raining Men with Martha Wash in 1997, and the club successes Looking Good, Feeling Gorgeous in 2004, and People are People in 2006, stand out as gay classics.

RuPaul's icon status has led to some strange collaborations indeed, including Elton John, and the divine Miss Ross herself...

Happy birthday, fierce ruling diva!
