Another Friday, another video. It seems like forever since I posted something about Ru, the mother of drag, well in my eyes anyways. Ru has been a staple in the music industry for 20 years now, her debut CD, Super Model of the World, was released on June 8, 1993. It spawned three hit singles, “Supermodel (You Better Work),” “Back to My Roots,” and “Shade Shady (Now Prance).” Since then, Ru has released four full-length albums and is vigorously working on her sixth, which is set to be released sometime late 2013/early 2014.
With all this talk about Ru’s music I bet you’re dying to know what song I’ve chosen for today. Well the ghetto pop romp that I’ve chosen is Ru’s ‘Tranny Chaser.’ I personally love this song, then again I’m pretty sure there isn’t a song by Ru that I hate. I particularly love this song because of the message it sends out the straight guys in America:
“Just because you want me… that don’t make you gay
Every time you watch me… that don’t make you gay
Do you wanna be me… that don’t make you gay
Or do you wanna f(honk) me… that don’t make you gay”
In the video Ru is this provocative drag queen on the prowl for a man, gay, straight, she don’t care. The music video is just letting the straight guys that are attracted to Ru, that’s ok. She’s tall, dark, and beautiful, who wouldn’t be attracted to her? Give it a couple of spins and you’ll have the chorus stuck in your head. Enjoy Bitches.
