Glee’s Amber Riley and RuPaul’s Drag Race Star Shangela Spend NYE Together (PHOTO)
It looks like Amber Riley (Mercedes) rang in the new year by attending her first drag show ever. And Amber clearly doesn’t mess around, because she brought along an expert in the field: RuPaul’s Drag Race star (and Glee cameo-er!) Shangela!
You may remember Shangela from the “Let’s Have a Kiki/Turkey Lurkey Time” mashup in the “Thanksgiving” episode. (It’s okay if you don’t — we almost had a seizure from all the fabulosity of that number). Well, it seems that Amber and Shangela are friends, even if they didn’t get to do a scene together on Glee. Fun fact: Amber has also been a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race (though not the season Shangela competed in), so this wasn’t exactly her first drag show. Shangela, whose regular, non-drag name is D.J. Pierce, didn’t wear drag to the revue. He probably didn’t want to make all these other queens jealous or how gorgeous he is!
We’d love to see these two having a kiki together on Glee!
