RuPaul Takes Shots at Jimmy Fallon on New Song ‘I’m That B***h’ for Calling Him Drag Queen
His diss is a reference to his viral ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ appearance on which he playfully corrected Jimmy for calling him the first drag queen to grace Vanity Fair’s cover.
AceShowbiz –RuPaul is apparently not done messing up with Jimmy Fallon over the latter’s near-fatal blunder. Weeks after his playful correction at “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” host’s “Drag Queen” reference became viral, the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” host released a new song titled “I’m That B***h” that took a shot at the comedian again.
A 1-minute preview of the diss track, which was obtained by Entertainment Weekly, hears RuPaul rapping about Fallon’s unintentional offensive remarks. “Had to almost cancel Jimmy, put him in a bodybag. He called me a drag queen? B***h, I’m the queen of drag!” the Emmy Awards winner spits. “In case you forgot, let me remind you that I, I, I’m that b***h!”
“I’m that B***h” was written by the 59-year-old TV personality along with music collaborator Leland, Freddy Scott and Tom Campbell. It will be made available for streaming and download on Friday, February 28 after the Season 12 premiere of “RuPaul’s Drag Race”. A cast-assisted version of this song will also debut on the premiere night.
RuPaul and Fallon made headlines earlier this February when he stopped by for an interview aired on February 6. At one point of their chat, Fallon brought up the topic of RuPaul being the first “Drag Queen” to land on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine. To Fallon’s surprise, RuPaul snapped at his reference, exclaiming in return, “A drag queen? A drag queen? I am the queen of drag!”
The awkward moment has since gone viral with Fallon weighing on his slip up less than a week later. “I really thought it was over,” he confessed on his late night talk show. ” ‘That’s it. I’m canceled, I have to start up my own #JimmyFallonIsOverParty.’ I had a good run, you know, 10 years in the business… I was like ‘wait what did I do wrong?!’ ” He added, “My thanks to RuPaul, we love you. That was a very funny moment.”
