Last season on RuPaul’s Drag Race, the contestants struck a pose in Madonna drag — and while they expressed themselves and gave good face, almost half of them inexplicably wore “Nothing Really Matters”-inspired kimonos for the challenge. Drag Race judge and avowed Madonna fangirl Michelle Visage was NOT amused. Neither was RuPaul. So for this week’s Drag Race episode, the series staged a “shequel” and had the new Season 9 queens pay their own sartorial tribute to the “Dress You Up” queen of pop.
