RuPaul has hit out at those criticising Meghan Markle in recent months, saying—in much stronger words—that she should ignore the haters.

Markle has recently been the subject of a number of stories in the UK tabloid press, which have claimed there is an ongoing feud between the Duchess of Sussex and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton.

In a new interview on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Sunday night (January 20), RuPaul spoke out against the abuse the Duchess of Sussex has received.

“She is with child!” he said.

“And the truth is all these people spreading all these rumours about her, they’re the problem. People wanna talk this. If they ain’t paying your bills, pay them b****es no mind.”

RuPaul talks Britney as a Drag Race judge

Elsewhere in the interview, the RuPaul’s Drag Race host also said he could not “confirm or deny” whether Britney Spears would be a guest judge on the 11th season of the show .

High-profile pop stars including Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera have featured on previous seasons of the show.

“People wanna talk this. If they ain’t paying your bills, pay them b****es no mind.”

The fourth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 4 is currently screening, including queens Manila Luzon, Monét X Change, and Trinity The Tuck.

RuPaul’s Drag Race star comes out as non-binary

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 4 contestant Valentina recently came out as non-binary in a new interview.

Speaking to Out magazine, Valentina explained that that she doesn’t identify with a binary gender.

“I identify as non-binary,” Valentina told the publication.

“I don’t completely feel like a man, I don’t completely feel like a woman.

“I feel like a goddess. I feel like I’m my own gender.”

However, Valentina added that she is still using “she/her” pronouns.

Another contestant on the show, Gia Gunn, who is transgender, recently said that she confronted RuPaul about trans issues on camera, but the moment was left out the show.

RuPaul’s comments were not referenced on All Stars, but Gia Gunn has revealed that she did challenge the host on-camera about the remarks.

In an interview with the Race Chaser podcast, Gunn said: “I really went on there for one reason only, which was to bring trans visibility to the show and open doors for other types of drag queens to come through.”

She added: “I did [talk to RuPaul]. Of course it wasn’t aired… which was a little disappointing. I very well knew that none of that was going to air because the show is not about making her look anything but great.”
