Drag icon and legend RuPaul Charles talks his new album Remember Me: Essentials Vol. 1 (available on iTunes, wink) in a new interview with Forbes discussing his ideology concerning relevancy and the future (and past) of his music ventures.
RuPaul’s new album, which dropped last week integrates his old catalog with a new sensibility for listeners. When asked why RuPaul gave this as a response:
Well, I’ve always loved those songs, and there’s a new audience who really haven’t heard them. Part of my job and career has been to be a curator, and to point kids in the direction that they need to see things. They’re inundated with so much information, and this is a way for me to curate my back catalog so they can understand what’s happening. I learned very early in my career as a businessman that someone turns 18 every day. They’ve never heard of bell bottoms, so what do you do? You sell them some motherf**king bell bottoms.
You better’ work Mama Ru!
