Shangela: The Socialite Life Interview

The most shocking moment in the season premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race occurred when season two contestant Shangela (a/k/a Shangela Laquifa Wadley, the Debutantess of the Deep South) returned to compete for the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar”. Although she may not have as much experience as her fellow competitors, she’s surely got just as much heart and passion for performing. You can’t not be in a good mood when you talk to Shangela! We chatted with Shangela about her return to Drag Race, how she got her start as a drag entertainer and her future plans. With her infectious personality and homegrown charm, it’s easy to see how this queen got a second chance to compete for the title! Shangela: Halleloo, somebody! Socialite Life: Halleloo! Hi Shangela! How are you? Shangela: I am fabulous! How are you today? SL: I’m great because I’m talking to you! Shangela: Aww, yay! Thank you for that, I appreciate that. SL: I was so happy to see you come back on RuPaul’s Drag Race Shangela: Well, honey, only half as happy as I was to be back! SL: On the premiere, they made sure to let the viewers (and the other queens) know that you had to audition again to get on Drag Race 3. Shangela: That’s right, just like everyone else! You know, there were tons and tons of applicants – even more than the first two years – this year, so the competition was stiffer. But, you know, I felt like I worked so hard over the last year and why not? I really wanted to come back and show that I am America’s Next Drag Superstar – not because I’m specialized in one specific area, just because I work hard in all of the different areas. I feel like I’ve been in “drag boot camp” over the last year! So, I was excited to put in an audition tape and hopefully come back and I was just lucky that RuPaul felt the same way. SL: What was it like to get that second chance? Shangela: Girl! I’ll tell you this, the day I got the call, I really, really almost didn’t believe it because, going on the show, doing the second season, I’d only been doing drag for five months – and to get a huge honor like that to compete with 12 other of the best divas out there, I already had such a great opportunity. And I was only on one episode, you know this, but I worked it as hard as I could over the next year, just to get better and take what I learned from that one episode and go farther. So, I was like, “I’m going to try this” and to get that call saying “We’re going to bring you back” and you get another shot at this – it’s a second chance at life really. And you play it in your head like, “Okay, what am I going to do better? How am I going to turn this time?”, but it’s so much more pressure too because when you get a second chance, I feel people judge you more critically.

(And can I take a quick sec to feel my oats about Dan Reynolds standing and jammin to my live performance of Uptown Fish last night lol) A post shared by Shangela (DJ) (@itsshangela) on Nov 4, 2018 at 7:14am PST SL: Was the reaction of the other girls when they first saw you this season creative editing or did they really have those expressions on their faces when they laid eyes on you? Shangela: Girl, if it was creative editing, I need to hire that person to get the reactions for everything I say in life! Those were the most real expressions on their faces – you know, I jump out of a Christmas box – first of all, I look like “jack-in-the-box Shangela” – and I come popping out of this box and to see all of those faces, their jaws were just on the ground. And I thought that – you know me, I’m Shangela, I hug everybody – so I’m like “Hey, I’m back! How is everybody?” and everyone’s looking at me like, “Who? Oh, really?” SL: Do you feel like the competition is stiffer this season? Shangela: Well, you know, I was only there for one episode last season and this year’s girls are a completely different batch from last year’s girls. I can’t really comparatively judge them – but I can tell you that this year’s girls were sickening! Because as more people are competing, Ru and the judges – and everyone who chooses the contestants on the show – they’re having to see everyone pulling out the best of the best. So, definitely, it was a tough competition and these girls are stiff competition, period. SL: So, let’s talk about you. How did you get your start in drag? Shangela: Well, you know, this is pretty much my anniversary month. I’ve been doing drag now for exactly two years but going on the show, I’d only been doing it for 4 months. I kind of fell into it, to be honest with you. I was choreographing a number, Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”, for these three guys who were doing a charity event here in West Hollywood and, the night before the guys were to go on, one of them got sick. So they called me and said (of course, I wasn’t Shangela yet), “DJ, is there any way you can help us out? You know all of the steps and we really want to do this as a trio” and I’m thinking, “I don’t have any wigs, I don’t have any makeup.” But…well, you know, I’m gay, honey! So, just a man around the corner has a wig, a dress, something in your size, a bra, some pads…and the next thing you know, I was filling in for him. And the guy who runs the show said, “I would love for you to come back and I would love to book you for our show” and I said “Oh, this isn’t my thing. I’m not a drag performer, I was just filling in” and he said, “You can win money” And girl, you know we’re in a recession! (Laughs) But, to be honest with you, I’ve always been a performer. I’ve been a backup dancer for some of the best drag queens in the business back in Texas and I always watched them and I learned by watching but I just love to entertain. So I say it chose me and I fell into it and now I’m just loving it. View this post on Instagram LaQuifa HOME Collection A post shared by Shangela (DJ) (@itsshangela) on Oct 6, 2018 at 3:17am PDT SL: How did the character of Shangela come to life – and how would you describe her? Shangela: Well, she’s evolved, okay? (Laughs) I’ll tell you this – Shangela is a little bit bougy, but she’s also your homegirl. I’ve always stuck to that and I also have affectionately titled myself “The Debutantess of the Deep South” – and that speaks a lot about Shangela. Shangela is sweet, she’s somewhat refined but she’s also your girl from the block. Anybody you want to call or go out with – the party girl who’s going to tell it like it is – that’s Shangela. SL: I saw you do stand up on Logo and I thought you were hilarious! Is that something you had done before you started doing drag? Shangela: Well, you know, the really cool thing is – and I don’t know if you know this – but before I went on Drag Race, I’d been working a 9-to-5 office life in PR for the last couple of years and, you know, sometimes you just feel – I don’t know if you ever feel like this – but I felt like this just isn’t everything that I want out of my life. It’s great, it works for a lot of people but, for me, I felt almost trapped. I was getting up at seven to be on the road by eight, be at the office by nine and then leave at six, get home at seven, go to bed at ten to get back up at seven – you know? And that was every day of the week and I just felt like when I got the opportunity to go on Drag Race, this was my shot. And my job told me, “If you go there, we’re not going to be able to keep your job for you”, so I quit – in the middle of a recession – and that’s not an easy thing to do but when you have a passion, sometimes you’ve got to step out on a little bit of faith – halleloo! So that’s what I did, and luckily, it worked out really well for me. It opened the door for me. I didn’t go back to work…here’s the thing, when I left to go on Drag Race, I was like, “Baby, yes, I’m going to win this. I’m going to take care of my family and I’m going to be the next drag superstar” – and I went home after the first episode. And I kind of had a little moment of shock like, “Oh my God, what have I done? I quit my job. I don’t have any checks coming in. What’s going on?” – but that opened the door for me to really do what I’m supposed to do with my life – and that’s being an entertainer. I started doing stand up comedy at a couple of clubs here in Los Angeles and they picked me up at The Comedy Store. They said, “We think you’re funny. We want you to come every two weeks.” and from there, they cast me to do stand up comedy and host the Logo comedy special. So all of that’s kind of come as a result of me following my dreams – and starting it with Drag Race. SL: Do you think being able to do stand up is a benefit to your drag career? Shangela: Oh my God, yes! Any time I can be on a stage and perform is a benefit to my career. Any time that I can make someone else laugh or touch someone’s life – because you really don’t know how much laughter impacts our world, it really does. And that’s what I think I bring to my everyday life…you ask my friends, honey, their stomachs are hurting all of the time because we just sit around and laugh! But I love to bring that to the stage so I think that, yeah, being in drag definitely helps me have more experiences that are crazy and funny – and I can take them right to the stage. SL: When you’re on stage, what do you enjoy the most about performing? Shangela: It’s the connection that you get with the audience. You know, a lot of people can put a great look together and get on stage and they look gorgeous and they do their song – if it’s a lip sync – or they do their form of entertainment; but if you don’t connect with the audience, then the people in the audience don’t get the full experience of being at the show. And that’s what I bring every time I hit the stage – that’s what I really want to bring is an experience. It’s not just, “I’m going to see Shangela”. It’s “I’m going to experience Shangela” and that’s what you get! That’s what I love about being on stage, the way you can really connect with people in the audience and have a good time! SL: As far as inspirations for your drag performances – do you have any? Shangela: Oh, definitely! I have so many because I’m new – so everything is so wide-eyed to me. I get so much from so many different people. I look at people’s fashion or I look at the way people bring fire to the stage, there’s always me in the performance but a lot of times – especially makeup, honey! I have a drag mother who I got after I started doing drag – but I used to dance back-up for her. Her name is Alyssa Edwards out of Dallas, Texas. Now she is the most winningest…can I say, bitch? She is the most winningest bitch in captivity, okay? She has won every pageant because she’s refined and what I have in entertainment I’ve had to really try and gather fast to meet that or match it with refinement, with makeup and the ability to sew and create costumes and just to be organized with your drag – because it can be a lot. So, I learned a lot from her. I’ve learned a little from afar by watching Ru as a businessperson – making drag, not just a past time or a hobby – but, as I said, I left my job and this is what I do full-time now. It’s now a business. It’s about marketing, it’s about branding, it’s about connecting to your fans, it’s about being fresh, new and re-inventing yourself – and that’s what I hope to continue to bring. SL: Do you think your background in PR has helped you in your drag career? Shangela: You know, my background in life helps it out! And, I’m just fortunate – definitely the PR piece, because you can go into a meeting and people are talking about, “We’re going to do these t-shirts with you” and you can know that there needs to be a strategy behind just putting some t-shirts together. There needs to be a business model that works with doing everything in drag – you know, a big misconception about drag queens is that this is what they’ve done all of their lives. And there are some drag queens who have – and that’s great for them – but I know drag queens who are attorneys, I know drag queens who, you know, have full, married lives and have children and I know drag queens who are creative in the arts – artists, stylists, everything – we come from all walks of life. So I think a lot of us – including myself – bring what we have from our background and put it into our drag to make us successful. SL: Were you able to learn anything or take anything away from this season’s experience? Shangela: A check! (Laughs) I’m telling you, what I always take away from last year’s experience on Drag Race and this year’s experience on Drag Race is not only the connection, the family with the other girls – because you know there are some catty bitches in that room, okay? There are! And they will fight tooth and nail to get to the top, as when you’re in a competition you sometimes have to. But what the viewers at home don’t get to see is that after the show and even during in the show, we develop such great relationships between a couple of us – and that’s what I love – the sisterhood of drag – because you can’t get far without helping someone else and someone else has to bump you and that’s what I really believe in. I get so many emails and so many calls from new drag queens on the scene – because I think that’s part of the genre of the group that I represent as well because I’m so new – and fierce! I really have to be a role model for them and I think it’s important that we help each other – and, on the show, you don’t get to see it, but we’ve built a great sisterhood there – a family. SL: What kind of advice are you giving to these aspiring drag queens? Shangela: Well, I’d say watch, listen, learn and always do you! That’s it! You can watch a lot of people – but you don’t want to become anyone else – the whole thing about drag is that its self-expression. It’s unleashed, okay? Anything that you think that can’t be done in drag…yes, it can! If you’re a nasty, stank ho and you want to get on the stage…that’s you’re drag – you do you! That’s not Shangela! But you do you! And that’s my advice to all of them. Makeup…that’s the “watch, listen, learn” part – the makeup, the putting yourself together, the hoe to be organized, the how to make it work…but when you get on stage, ain’t nobody there but you and the lights! So you have to do you! SL: Is there a lot of DJ in Shangela? Shangela: Yes, but Shangela takes it to the next level – a different level. In my day-to-day life, I’m entertaining, I’m funny, I love my friends, we have a good time, that kind of thing…yes! Shangela’s more of an all out-there partier. You’re going to see me on the stage at the club, having a good time, toasting it up with the girls. I’m a little bit louder – if you can even imagine that because I’m mighty loud today! But, I just take it up a notch and when you’re a girl – or when you’re putting on an illusion – it’s a full-on illusion to me. When you meet Shangela, you get the Shangela voice, the Shangela essence, the Shangela smell – I mean, I am Juicy Couture fish! I love just putting all of that together as Shangela. Now, in my day-to-day life, I’m not so glamorous all of the time. Right now, I’m just sitting here – I just helped my friend with a photo shoot this morning at the LA river, and I’m very “call me up, I’ll help anyone” and I was holding a reflector, I’ve got my hair snatched back in a bun with a baseball cap on with sunglasses – that’s the farthest thing from glamour that you can get! But you’ll never see Shangela in a pair of sweats – I don’t even show up at the club in a pair of tennis shoes, no ma’am! SL: What do you think separates you from the other queens this season? View this post on Instagram #AStarIsBorn #UKPremiere Dress: @diegomontoya3d; Styled by: @derekanthonypurcell Hair: @ashleiiman; Hair Styled by @justmaydoes; Jewelry: Maria Isabel; Body Bronzer: @bludline A post shared by Shangela (DJ) (@itsshangela) on Sep 27, 2018 at 2:13pm PDT Shangela: We’re all very, very different. You’ve seen the first episode, you can already see a lot of the really sharp differences. I think what sets me apart is that…well, two things. One, I’ve been in this setting before, so I feel like I have something to prove this time around. So, the fire in me, I feel is burning a little bit brighter – it’s a little bit hotter because I feel like I have so much to prove…I have a huge weight on my shoulders, being brought back to represent those who haven’t been doing it for a long time, to say it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been doing something, you can still rock it and you can be the fiercest bitch in the room! It’s not years of experience, it’s how hard you’re willing to work, and I think that’s what really sets me apart in this room is that I’m here to work – and that is W-E-R-Q! – with the exclamation point! I’m going to work, so I think that’s what sets me apart. I don’t want to be the baby of the group this time around even though I have the least amount of experience in drag. I’m nobody’s baby. My years of experience are less than the other girls, but then again, the fire is burning hot and somebody better step back or you’re going to get burned! SL: What would people be surprised to know about you? Shangela: I’m a very open book, a lot of people don’t know that I’m from Paris, Texas. I tell everyone that as soon as I meet them, but they look at me and say, “You don’t have a Texas twang.” Well, you know, give me a bucket of chicken and a Coca-Cola and the next thing you know, I’m just as country as can be! But, I am from Paris, Texas. It’s a very small town and I grew up with my grandparents and my Mom came back from the military and I grew up with her in a single-family home and I really worked a lot to have the experiences in my life that I’ve had. But you wouldn’t know that I’ve worked on the hill for a year or that I studied abroad in Madrid in art history…nobody wants to know all of that, they just want to see what you have on the stage. But there are so many layers to me, and I love just sharing a lot and everything about me, so there’s not a lot people don’t know about me – if you choose to get to know me. SL: How would you describe your look? Shangela: Sickening – that’s pretty much the way you would describe my look! To be honest with you, I think that my look just…there’s so many looks because it’s drag…the everyday Shangela is glamour and homegirl – all together. It’s glamour girl from the streets – because, with me, I always keep it real. I can have on the Alexander McQueen, straight off the runway, and look fish sickening boots – and we can still roll in that to the Taco Bell. That’s who I am and that essence of me keeping it real just comes with everything – and I think that’s the best way that you can connect with people – there are no walls, there is no diva attitude – I am a diva, make no mistake, when I come into a room, I feel like it’s important to say, “I’m here”, but you don’t have to say that out loud to do that, you just have to walk in and be – and that’s Shangela. SL: What does the future hold for Shangela? Shangela: Well, specifically, on the show, I want to win – so, my aspiration is to go home as America’s Next Drag Superstar. In addition to that, I really just want to be able to show that there’s so many different talents to drag queens to me, as Shangela, that I hope I’m able to express to the full extent on the show. I’m a comedian, I’m an entertainer, I’m a host – I would love after the show to go on and represent – whether it be brands or a show host, having someone sitting on my couch every week and keeping it real and talking. Be the Andy Cohen, have a Life on the D List – I live here in Los Angeles and I am a diva on the rise. So, with all of those experiences, people should be able to see those and experience those as well and hopefully, one day, I’ll have a platform to share that with them. SL: Do you have any interest in a singing career? Shangela: You know, I think that a lot of girls have done great with their careers, from season two especially – and season one. I know that my sister Sahara Davenport just put out a new single “Pump with Me” which is kick-ass, it’s a dance track. And I love to sing, I’m a Tina Turner fanatic. But I think where I’m going to start is by doing a one-woman show and my calling is entertaining people, making people laugh. Whether it’s singing, putting out a hot dance track – you know, I can disco dance – and I love the Pussycat Dolls – bringing that kind of fire to the stage. But I’m really going to focus on entertaining any way I can right now. If it comes later in a song, it comes later in a song – but I’ve got to write it, it’s got to come from me because I feel that only I can really have my voice and we’re just going to work it out. SL: Are you going to continue doing stand up? Shangela: Yes! Most definitely. I’m bringing a show to New York, I think it’s going to be at Caroline’s on Broadway later this spring so I’m really about that. I work here at The Comedy Store and we just started a new night at Hamburger Mary’s in West Hollywood, and I’m hosting that show as well. You know, I do those shows in drag and out of drag and it’s always a good time! SL: Are you planning on touring after the show? Shangela: Oh, honey, I’m touring! I just launched a new website, Shangela.com – please send everybody and their grandmother to it! It has my entire touring schedule there. I’m on the move, honey! SL: Besides your website, is there any other way fans can keep in touch with you? Shangela: Most definitely! You know, I’m a Tweet from the street, girl! You can follow me on Twitter @itsShangela and on my Facebook fan page! Oh, my God, I have to tell you about the new film! I’m in this new film, as Shangela, called Body of a Barbie, okay? It’s a short film we produced in Los Angeles and it got picked up by BET, it aired last fall, and it’s actually now in the top seven finalists of the BET Lens on Talent program. So, they had this huge competition for short films and our film was in the top seven in the US. It’s called Body of a Barbie and it’ll be back on BET this spring and I’m really excited about that. SL: Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I thought you were awesome on Terriers! Shangela: Oh, thank you! That was my first guest starring role and the writers were so awesome. You know, when I auditioned, I was only on three pages of script, and when I got to San Diego to film it, they thought that the character needed more involvement in the show and it went from three pages to 28 pages of a 42 page script and I wanted to bring the fire, because that episode was directed by Adam Arkin and he was fabulous to work with and they were so great and so respectful and I got to be in drag and out of drag and it’s done a lot of great things for me. Actually, I’m going to be on an episode of this show on ABC called Detroit 1-8-7. We just shot that – me, Coco Peru and Jai Rodriguez – and it airs February 15th on ABC. SL: Thank you so much for your time and good luck with everything! Shangela: Aww, thank you! I wish I could give you a big hug! Halleloo! This article was originally published on January 25, 2011. RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-Slay Spectacular featuring Shangela airs Friday, Dec. 7 at 8:00 p.m. ET on VH1......»»

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Have Left The Obamas, The Trumps, & More OFF Their Wedding Guest List!

Like his late mother Princess Diana, Prince Harry is a royal for the people!

On Monday, it was revealed that the ginger prince and fiancée Meghan Markle have chosen to keep politics out of their wedding. Meaning, the twosome have decided that they WON'T extend wedding invitations to Barack and Michelle Obama OR Donald and Melania Trump. In fact, not even British Prime Minister Theresa May made the guest list for the May 19 nuptials. Related: Bethenny Frankel Once Dated Meghan's Ex-Husband! What a bold move!! Daily Express royal correspondent Richard Palmer confirmed this news to be true, as he took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared: There will be no official UK or overseas guests at Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding. No Theresa May, President Trump or Obamas. — Richard Palmer (@RoyalReporter) April 10, 2018 A KP spokesman says: "It has been decided that an official list of political leaders – both UK and international - is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle's wedding. Her Majesty's Government was consulted on this decision, which was taken by The Royal Household." — Richard Palmer (@RoyalReporter) April 10, 2018 So why the political snub?? Per Mr. Palmer, since Harry is unlikely to ever be king, "there's no need for official guests." He continued: Essentially, it’s been decided that there’s no need for official guests, as Prince Harry is not likely to be a future King. Everyone inside the chapel will know Harry and Meghan personally. — Richard Palmer (@RoyalReporter) April 10, 2018 On foreign royalty attending Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding, I’m told it will depend if they are friends. Nobody will be invited because of the position they hold. — Richard Palmer (@RoyalReporter) April 10, 2018 Sounds fair to us! Not to mention, it appears that Harry and Meghan are using their wedding day as a way to celebrate the people of the U.K. As we previously reported, the engaged love birds made sure to expand their royal wedding guest list to include more "members of the public." Amid all this guest list talk, Kensington Palace confirmed some of the public citizens who've been invited to the ceremony at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. The palace noted online: Here are the stories of some of the people who will be joining the celebrations in the grounds of Windsor Castle on May 19th: — Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) April 10, 2018 Philip Gillespie from Ballymena who lost his right leg in an IED incident in Afghanistan and works to raise funds and awareness for ABF The Soldiers' Charity. pic.twitter.com/WadD7gRpRq — Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) April 10, 2018 Pamela Anomneze from Haringey.

More Than 22 Million Americans Tuned In To Watch The Royal Wedding — TV Rating Deets HERE!

It was a banner day on Saturday morning for American television viewers and all six major networks that carried Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal nuptials!

More than 22.4 million viewers in total got up VERY early on Saturday morning across America to watch the Royal Wedding -- which marks a total of about four million MORE Americans tuning in to see it this year than their British counterparts! Related: Re-Live Meghan's Full, Memorable Day!! According to Nielsen Media reports out this afternoon in THR that center on royal wedding viewership across the networks, NBC came away the big winner of the royal rumble with more than 6.42 million viewers watching throughout the day! They were followed up by ABC, who boasted 6.38 million, and then CBS at 4.79 million. Fox News boasted 2 million viewers, as well, which beat CNN's 1.8 million watchers, and MSNBC's tally at just under one million. All in all not a bad day for the Americans and our TV networks, though, especially because our audience turned out to be tuned in a bit more than our British counterparts (just in gross totals, and not relative to overall population size, of course!). Obviously, Meghan Markle's status as an American and being involved in the ceremony may have helped the big day, at least on this side of the pond. Related: Where Were The Spice Girls?! For some context, the previous royal wedding -- 2011's ceremony between Prince William and Kate Middleton -- average nearly 23 million viewers in total across all networks. When you add in some of the smaller splinter networks and shows (say, HBO's Cord and Tish hosting their own version of the actual royal wedding), it's likely that Prince Harry and Meghan will surpass -- narrowly -- Kate and Prince William. Thoughts, Perezcious readers?! Let us know in the comments (below)!!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Royal Wedding: Meghan Markle"s Father Has THIS To Say About Her Wedding With Prince Harry!

With family like this, who needs enemies?? As you're likely aware, Meghan Markle's relatives have done pretty much everything in their power to ruin her royal wedding. For starters, earlier this month, the Suits actress' half brother Thomas Markle Jr. penned a letter urging Prince Harry to call off the nuptials.

As you're likely aware, Meghan Markle's relatives have done pretty much everything in their power to ruin her royal wedding. For starters, earlier this month, the Suits actress' half brother Thomas Markle Jr. penned a letter urging Prince Harry to call off the nuptials. Related: Lifetime's Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Movie Was Absurd! Then, Meghan's father Thomas Markle Sr. left her embarrassed after he was caught staging paparazzi pics -- after the royal family SPECIFICALLY ordered the media to give Miz Markle's family privacy. To make matters worse, Markle's estranged half sister Samantha Grant went on to take credit for the photography scandal. Oh, and Grant has been accused of planting unsubstantiated stories in the news. Smh. As Meghan's loved ones can't stay away from the limelight, we can't say we're surprised that the Markle patriarch has already commented on the royal wedding. For his reactions to the highly publicized nuptials, be sure to proceed (below)! During a chat with TMZ, the reclusive industry vet noted that he was "emotional and joyful" while watching the wedding. He noted: "My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy. I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness." In case you missed it, following his scandal, Markle was forced to drop out of the royal wedding due to an urgent health scare. In fact, Meghan's poppa had to undergo heart surgery. Thus, Prince Charles walked the American actress down the aisle! Despite the recent dramatics, the royal wedding went off without a hitch! We couldn't be happier for Harry and Meghan! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Katy Perry Actually Critiqued Meghan Markle’s Wedding Dress

If anyone has any insight into Katy Perry's career game plan, please make yourself heard in the comments, because as it stands it feels like she's deliberately destroying any goodwill that she cultivated from her Reddi-whip tit and abduction alien rape fantasy past. The golden years. I haven't covered the royal wedding on here because it's boring and stupid, but even I know that royal newlywed Meghan Markle looked like a million bucks in her wedding dress, and that even if she didn't, America is so far up her vag that critiquing any aspect of the wedding is a huge no-no. The post Katy Perry Actually Critiqued Meghan Markle’s Wedding Dress appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?.   If anyone has any insight into Katy Perry’s career game plan, please make yourself heard in the comments, because as it stands it feels like she’s deliberately destroying any goodwill that she cultivated from her Reddi-whip tit and abduction alien rape fantasy past. The golden years. I haven’t covered the royal wedding on here because it’s boring and stupid, but even I know that royal newlywed Meghan Markle looked like a million bucks in her wedding dress, and that even if she didn’t, America is so far up her vag that critiquing any aspect of the wedding is a huge no-no. Markle – who married Prince Firecrotch this weekend to enough fanfare to relegate the Santa Fe, TX shooting victims to “Around the Web” sections of websites – helps fat-assed single administrative assistants named Peg in Toledo, OH believe that their fairytale endings are right around the corner. A person who would in any way question that fantasy would have to be a gross unlikeable monster, and speaking of, Perry – who’s recent fashion choices make her look like Kristen Stewart dressed as a clown for a down syndrome convention – somehow thought it was appropriate to weigh in on Markle’s Givenchy wedding dress: I would have done one more fitting. I’m never not going to tell the truth! One more fitting, but I love you. Is there a chance Markle didn’t want to wear a skin-tight hooker dress to her wedding? Nah. Perry then further interjected herself into the lives of people who probably think she passed away in 2014 by pitting Kate Middleton and Marle against each other: Kate, Kate, Kate won, Kate won! Remember this is coming from the defining woke feminist of our generation. Royal cat fight sluts!   The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released three official photographs from their Wedding day.

Meghan Markle Has Some Seriously Strict Rules To Follow Now That She"s A Duchess!

Meghan Markle may've had the freedom to take selfies and sign autographs, but the newly minted Duchess of Sussex does not! As you surely know, on Saturday, the American actress officially became a member of the royal family thanks to her wedding to Prince Harry. Understandably, this means that Meghan's life has since drastically changed. Related: Harry [...] Meghan Markle may've had the freedom to take selfies and sign autographs, but the newly minted Duchess of Sussex does not! As you surely know, on Saturday, the American actress officially became a member of the royal family thanks to her wedding to Prince Harry. Understandably, this means that Meghan's life has since drastically changed. Related: Harry & Meghan Will Visit Thomas Markle In Mexico! In fact, there are all sorts of royal rules Miz Markle is now required to follow as a member of the Windsor family. We're being completely serious. Not only is Meghan's style now dictated by royal decree, but also the way she walks and talks. For a breakdown of all the royal restrictions, be sure to proceed (below)... 1. Under no circumstance is Meghan to take a selfie. It's said that the 36-year-old Duchess once told a fan that she and Harry are "not allowed to do selfies." Apparently, this rule is meant to encourage commoners to make eye contact and conversation with the royals. 2. As selfies are a no-no, so is personal social media usage. As you surely know, all news regarding Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton comes from the Kensington Royal Twitter and Instagram pages. Thus, ahead of her marriage into the family, Markle had her IG and lifestyle blog go dark. 3. Meghan is to keep her signature to herself. NO AUTOGRAPHS! In order to prevent forgery, the Suits alum is not allowed to sign any autographs. 4. Dark and/or colored nail polish is prohibited. This explains why Meghan wore Essie's Ballet Slippers pink polish at the wedding. Oh, and it's also Queen Elizabeth's favorite color. 5. Royals must ALWAYS travel with mourning clothes. This rule was instated after the then Princess Elizabeth and husband Prince Philip were blindsided by King George VI's death while abroad in Africa. The twosome were forced to travel from Africa to the United Kingdom in regular clothes. Nowadays, royals must always have a set of funeral clothes packed in order to be respectful. 6. No matter what occasion, female family members must always curtsy to the Queen. At official events, Meghan is also expected to curtsy to anyone who outranks her. 7. Short hemlines are a no-go! It's believed that the Queen disapproves of skirts that are more than an inch or two above the knee. So Meghan better toss out those tiny red carpet numbers from her Hollywood days. 8. Speaking of Hollywood, Meghan seemingly can no longer pursue an acting career. She represents the British people now, so she has an image to uphold (and we doubt an acting gig in Tinseltown will help with that). 9. Meghan is discouraged from voting in British elections. Although UK Parliament says that it's not against the law in Britain for royalty to vote, it's viewed to be unconstitutional. 10. Markle can no longer cross her legs -- in public, at least. She'll be expected to perfect the "Duchess Slant" made famous by Princess Diana and proudly carried on by the Duchess of Cambridge. 11. Meghan will have to throw away her wedges, as the Queen despises them! 12. Assigned seating for life! At any royal family gathering, Meghan will always be expected to sit next to husband Harry. 13. Dinnertime is at 8:30 pm! When dining with Harry's monarch grandmother, Meghan will have to be ready at 8:30 pm to eat. The meal will last no later than 10 pm. 14. Also, Meghan isn't allowed to eat before OR after the Queen. Guests dining with the Queen can't start eating until the monarch begins chowing down. However, once she is done, so is the rest of the dinner table. 15. Meghan can't just walk into a royal room. During family functions, there's a strict entrance line, which is as follows: Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Duchess Camila, Prince William, Duchess Kate, and then most likely, Harry and Meghan. 16. If the Queen's awake, so is Meghan! If Meghan crashes with Queen Elizabeth at all, she is required to stay up until the longtime royal falls asleep. 17. Monopoly has been banned! Supposedly, the Duke of York Prince Andrew previously revealed that the royals are "not allowed to play Monopoly at home," as "it gets too vicious." 18. In order to avoid food poisoning, Meghan can no longer enjoy shellfish. Now, not EVERYONE in the royal family adheres to this rule, but the Queen still does!! Man, oh man. We hope Meghan has this list memorized!! We're wishing her only the best as she embarks on her new royal life! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle"s Acting Career Has Been TOTALLY BURIED On The Royal Family"s Website!

Rewriting history?? Meghan Markle, AKA the newly minted Duchess of Sussex, has been fully embraced by the royal family. However, it appears that her past in Tinseltown is one the Windsor family would like to forget!

Meghan Markle, AKA the newly minted Duchess of Sussex, has been fully embraced by the royal family. However, it appears that her past in Tinseltown is one the Windsor family would like to forget! Related: More Than 22 Million Americans Watched The Royal Wedding Just one day after her internationally celebrated wedding to Prince Harry, Meghan found herself with a page on the royal family's official website. While her "About" page touted Miz Markle's extensive charity work and feminist viewpoint, it shockingly left out her tenure in Hollywood. Instead, the website developers buried her Suits gig and her lifestyle website, The Tig, in the smaller biography section. Her bio reads as follows: "After university Her Royal Highness worked as an actress, appearing in film and television. She most notably played the role of Rachel Zane on the series Suits for seven seasons, completing over 100 episodes. Whilst working on Suits, The Duchess moved to Toronto, Canada where the show was filmed; she feels very connected to Canada, as it became a second home to her... Alongside her successful career as an actress, Her Royal Highness also wrote and edited a lifestyle website called The Tig which she used as a platform to discuss social issues such as gender equality in addition to articles on travel, food and fashion." You'd think this would be on her main page, right?? Nonetheless, Markle's "About" page focuses more on her charitable work and past fighting for women's rights. The website noted: "The Duchess had a keen awareness of social issues and actively participated in charitable work. Aged 11 she successfully campaigned for a company to alter their television advert that had used sexist language to sell washing-up liquid... These early experiences helped to shape her lifelong commitment to causes such as social justice and women's empowerment." Huh. Although, to be fair, the new Duchess will no longer be pursuing an acting career now that she's a royal. Rather, like her husband and other members of the royal family, Meghan will spend her time giving back to charities that benefit the Commonwealth. So it only makes sense that her about page highlight her charity work -- she's a career philanthropist now!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Victoria Beckham Gives Her Take On Meghan Markle, The Dress, & What Made This Royal Wedding Better Than The Last!

She and hubby David Beckham were two of the illustrious A-list guests at the 600-person event. Related: The Star-Studded Wedding Reception Was Everything AND MORE! And while others were disappointed at no Spice Girls reunion performance, Posh herself told the Evening Standard she had a wonderful time: "It was such a beautiful, incredible wedding. It was just the best day. They looked so happy and everybody was just so happy for them." So what does she think of Meghan Markle? She complimented the new Duchess, saying: "Meghan seems like a genuinely lovely woman who really loves him. It felt very real, very honest." After reportedly spending some time with the couple at the reception and after-after-party, Victoria is a good source for that indeed! But does she agree with Katy Perry that the wedding dress was not quite right? No way! "I thought she looked absolutely beautiful. It really suited her. I thought it was perfect for her. And Harry looked great." As for her own outfit, she was pretty easy to please. She quipped: "Quite honestly, it was such a relief not to be hugely pregnant at this royal wedding that it was a joy to be able to choose anything I wanted to wear." LOLz! Fans couldn't help but notice she wore almost the exact same color she had at Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding (though obviously not maternity wear this time around). She said: "I love a bit of navy. The dress is one of my favorites: it isn't in store until November, but we've had so many inquiries about it that I'm seeing whether I can bring it forward. " So if you were into Posh's Royal Wedding look (above), you're in luck! [Image via John Rainford/Rocky/WENN.].....»»

Yup, on Friday, Kensington Palace issued a statement revealing that Meghan Markle has asked her soon to be father-in-law to walk her down the aisle on May 19. WOW. Photos: Meghan & More Celebs Who Quit Acting! As you surely know, Miz Markle was originally supposed to be escorted by her reclusive father. However, after a scandal involving the paparazzi and an urgent health scare, the Hollywood cinematographer announced that he was unable to attend the royal wedding. While Mr. Markle encouraged Meghan to hand mother Doria Ragland his wedding duties, it appears that Princess Diana's ex husband has stepped up to take on the role. The palace issued the following on the update: "Ms. Meghan Markle has asked His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of the Quire of St George's Chapel on her Wedding Day. The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way." An update on the #RoyalWedding: pic.twitter.com/wfJ6ZFyzHi — Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) May 18, 2018 The show must go on, right?? Still, it sounds like the Suits star is truly touched by Charles' willingness to participate. A royal insider spilled to People: "It was Meghan's wish and she is grateful for the Prince of Wales to be doing it." Awwwwww. It's said that, during the earlier part of the procession, Meghan will be escorted by just her bridesmaids and page boys (which includes Prince George and Princess Charlotte). Once the American actress reaches the Quire, she'll be greeted by Prince Charles and brought to royal bridegroom Prince Harry. We honestly think it's wonderful that the 69-year-old Prince of Wales is doing this for Meghan, especially since this isn't his first royal wedding! Squee!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

During a recent interview with Australia's Fitzy and Wippa show on Nova 96.9, the I Feel Pretty actress claimed that Saturday's nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will likely "suck." And, once you hear the comedienne's reasoning, you might actually agree with her! Related: Elton John Will Be Performing At Harry & Meghan's Wedding! The Inside Amy Schumer creator defended: "This poor girl. Your wedding, everyone says it's your day. It's your day. She's like, no it's not... She has to meet all these foreign dignitaries she's never met before, there's so much pressure. Can you imagine having a worse wedding?" You know, Miz Schumer may actually have a point here. She continued: "That would suck. Her girls from high school aren't going to be there. It's like a parade, it's like Westminster Dog Show." Fair point. Although, that's kind of the price you pay when you agree to become an A-list public figure. To make matters worse, the build-up surrounding the royal wedding has only worsened thanks to the recent dramatics by Markle's estranged family. For example, after getting caught staging paparazzi pics, father Thomas Markle dropped his royal wedding duties as he needed urgent heart surgery. Half-sister Samantha Grant proudly took credit for the photography scandal AND has been accused of planting unsubstantiated stories in the press. Oh, and how could we forget about half brother from hell Thomas Markle Jr.?? You know, the sibling who wrote a letter begging the ginger prince to call off the May 19 ceremony. Despite this drama, it's been previously reported that Harry and Meghan are still "very excited" to get married this weekend. The show must go on, right?? [Image via WENN.].....»»

As you surely know, the town of Windsor has been busy getting ready, since the engaged twosome are saying their "I Dos" at Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel. While fans have learned everything from the florist tapped for the big ceremony to the pastry chef tasked with making the cake, Kensington Palace has stayed tight lipped about the duo's wedding party -- that is until now! Related: Lifetime's Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Movie Was Absurd! Although it's well known that Prince William is to serve as his little brother's best man, many have wondered who would fill out the additional positions. Thankfully, we've learned who's who at the royal wedding and are eager to share these tidbits with Y-O-U! For all the deets surrounding Meghan and Harry's wedding party, be sure to proceed (below)... On Wednesday, the palace released a statement naming the 10 (yes, 10) young children who'll serve as the soon-to-be wed couple's bridesmaids and page boys. Unsurprisingly, William and Kate Middleton's older children Prince George and Princess Charlotte are slated to lead the pack as bridal attendants on May 19. They previously served as a bridesmaid and a page boy at their aunt Pippa Middleton's wedding. It's said that several of Harry and Meghan's godchildren will also have roles in the bridal party. Case in point, three year old Miss Florence van Cutsem -- goddaughter of Prince Harry, daughter of Mrs. Alice van Cutsem and Major Nicholas van Cutsem -- has been named as a bridesmaid. Florence is the cousin of William and Kate's famously pouty bridesmaid in 2011. Meghan's additional bridesmaids are as follows: Six year old Miss Remi Litt (goddaughter of Ms. Markle, daughter of Mrs. Benita Litt and Mr. Darren Litt) Seven year old Miss Rylan Litt (goddaughter of Ms. Markle, daughter of Mrs. Benita Litt and Mr. Darren Litt) Four year old Miss Ivy Mulroney (daughter of Mrs. Jessica Mulroney and Mr. Benedict Mulroney) Two year old Miss Zalie Warren (goddaughter of Prince Harry, daughter of Mrs. Zoe Warren and Mr. Jake Warren) Who knew we'd be jealous of so many children?? WE TEASE. As for the other page boys, their names are: Six year old Master Jasper Dyer (godson of Prince Harry, son of Mrs. Amanda Dyer and Mr. Mark Dyer M.V.O.) Seven year old Master Brian Mulroney (son of Mrs. Jessica Mulroney and Mr. Benedict Mulroney) Seven year old Master John Mulroney (son of Mrs. Jessica Mulroney and Mr. Benedict Mulroney) The more you know! This announcement couldn't have come at a better time, as the press has been non stop focusing on Meghan's family drama. As you surely know, after staging pics with the paparazzi, father Thomas Markle pulled out of the royal wedding. It's since been reported that he'll need to undergo urgent heart surgery, further preventing his presence at the nuptials. Nonetheless, we're wishing the soon-to-be newlyweds only the best!!
