RuPaul’s Drag Race: Do you come from the land down under?

Published

on

Rupaul’s Drag Race Down Under is here, it’s queer and we can’t wait to witness the uniqueness, nerve and talent that Australia and New Zealand has to offer.

It all kicked off on Friday night with a lavish event at the Sydney Opera House, hosted by television commentator, David Campbell.

Although RuPaul herself was nowhere to be seen, singer Rita Ora and director Taika Waititi were in the audience to cheer the queens on as the first screening was played.

But it was on Saturday May 1 when, after years of speculation and months hype, the Stan Original Series officially aired to the world.

But who are the queens who are gracing our screens?

Drum roll, please…

Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra won the Eurovision contest in May, capturing the hearts of the world

After taking out the win, that would mean Ukraine would host the competition next year.

But the European Broadcasting Union announced last week it could not be held in Ukraine following Russia’s invasion.

The body behind Eurovision now says it “understands the disappointment” over its decision not to hold next year’s song contest in Ukraine.

The EBU said it was in talks with the BBC to host the contest in the UK.

That’s because British entrant Sam Ryder came second in this year’s contest with his single Spaceman.

The announcement was met with disappointment by Ukrainians but the E-B-U doubled down on its position, saying in a statement that it “fully understands the disappointment that greeted the announcement”.

Media tycoon Rupert Murdoch and actress Jerry Hall are reportedly getting a divorce

Murdoch and Hall tied the knot at a mansion in central London in 2016.

The divorce would be a fourth for Murdoch, who is aged 91. Hall, 65, was previously married to Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.

According to The New York Times, the split comes as a surprise to those close who are to the family.

At the time of his marriage, the billionaire said he was “the luckiest and happiest man in world”.
