The Spiritual Lesson of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” | SuperSoul Sunday | Oprah Winfrey Network


Oprah: But it’s amazing that often on your show, you seem to be giving spiritual advice. Really. RuPaul: Yeah, yeah. These kids, you know, we set up a situation on this competition reality show, where we challenge them to go beyond their own limited perception of themselves. And these are all of the things- Oprah: And that is the greatest spiritual teaching there is actually. RuPaul: Absolutely. And these are all the things that, in my career, I’ve been able to do. They look up to me because I’ve been doing this for a long time. So we’ve put them through these challenges, and it really, the real challenge is for them to be willing to die and become reborn, through these challenges. A lot of times, one kid, we had a comedy challenge, and she’s like, “Well, I’m not funny, I’m not a comedy …” Listen, what you do with your makeup, what you do when you’re lip syncing, apply that to comedy. You’ve got it. She got out there, funny, funny, funny. And you know, that is true for everyone. Like I said, there’s only one of us here on this planet. We are connected, we’re just one thing. So if you can apply what you know really well in another area, to this area which you think you may not know, you’ve got something.

  1. As a stroke survivor Ru Paul’s Drag Race is a big inspiration to me. It’s about transformation and confidence. And fun (which is missing from my
    life right now). I also need to transform myself in order to recover. And I heed more confidence.

  2. I love Rupaul and his brand of wisdom is so reassuring and soothing, people that overcome adversity and just run over every hurdle often have this kind of spirit, I yearn to be as free some day.

  3. I love how Oprah and Queen Latifah are supporters of RuPaul but it's sad how Ellen pretends that he or the drag community doesn't exists, especially that Drag Race is more successful than ever 🙁 They're are good human beings, I would love to see a interview between them one day.
