Recommended Mood 05: RuPaul's "Supermodel"

Published on 2019-06-19

Soooo, June's recent mix by Nacy Kim and Erin Keeffe includes the iconic video for RuPaul's "Supermodel" from 1993.

It watches in mostly black-and-white a recreation of RuPaul making it big in New York from shoots on the streets to stressful ten-person teams touching, yelling, and changing RuPaul's looks faster than you can down an espresso. It's a hectic look into what it "takes" to "make it," and ends with making the viewer ask themselves (and, to an extent, RuPaul), if the "work" is ever "worth" it.

Check out the video here, and the full mix and interview here.
