Over the weekend, I discovered that seasons two through nine of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” are now streaming on Netflix Canada. In order to prepare for the upcoming “Holi-slay Christmas Spectacular” and “All-Stars 4,” I’ve already plowed through Seasons 2 and 3.
It’s great to see how the show has evolved. You know what else evolves? Capricorn natives like Alyssa Edwards.
I’m a Capricorn, so of course I was always on Team Alyssa. It’s kind of hard not to like her because she’s just so freaking hilarious. She also gets better and better as time goes by. That’s one of the hallmarks of our sign: we age like a fine cheese. Capricorns are also also known as the “comeback kids” of the zodiac. By the time Alyssa makes it back for “All-Star Legends 12” in 2042, she should be ready to snatch the crown!
I had a look at her chart just to see what else she has going on in her horoscope. If the birth date I ran across online is correct, she not only has the sun in Capricorn, but also the moon and Mercury. That makes her far more Capricorn-like than me, and maybe that’s why I took a little while to warm up to her. I will say that we do have one thing in common. If someone told me I had “back rolls,” I would give them exactly the same look that Alyssa gave Jade Jolie. My overprotective Cancer moon, however, would have made me slap the bitch. Fucking Scorpios . . .
But I digress! The other thing that made me include Alyssa on my Dream Team is her ability to bridge camp and professionalism like almost no other queen has ever done. Has she ever looked sloppy? I don’t think so. Then again, my Twitter handle is “Team Capricorn,” so I may be a little biased.
According to this site, a few other Capricorns have appeared on the show, including Porkchop, Ongina, Honey Mahogany, Laganja Estranga and Aja. Only Aja strikes me as being another typical Capricorn because of her continual evolution. I’m probably not the only one who believes that Aja had the most-impressive growth arc on “All-Stars 3.”
Anyway, I should wrap up this feature in the next couple of weeks because I’ve got nothing else to do while I’m waiting for new episodes of “Drag Race” to return to TV. In the meantime, I’m going to watch every other season. Now that the weather is cold, practicing my death drops and working on my mouth pops seems like a practical use of my spare time.
That’s a Capricorn for you! Always so practical . . .
