RuPaul’s Drag Race: Most Followed Queens Of All Time On Instagram



RuPaul's Drag Race: Most Followed Queens Of All Time On <b>Instagram</b> thumbnail

A ranking of which RuPaul’s Drag Race queens have the most followers on Instagram. Find out which drag queens have over a million followers on IG.

Some queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race have gone on to become huge social media influencers that are followed by millions of adoring fans. When Drag Race first premiered on Logo in 2009, it wasn’t exactly an instant mainstream hit. It took a few years for the judges and the contestants to figure out what the show would ultimately be like. But at this point, Drag Race is watched by millions of people from around the world and keeps breaking new records in the Emmy Awards. There’s no way around it: the queens are now given an immense platform from the moment that they’re cast on the show.

It can be hard for up-and-coming drag performers to conquer the social media game after getting so much Drag Race exposure. Some queens have struggled over the years with hateful messages, death threats, and overall pressure from the fans. Fortunately, however, there are also plenty of queens that only improve their reputation with the content that they share online. All things considered, going far on RuPaul’s Drag Race isn’t a perfect indicator for a queen’s post-season fame. While it helps to stick around and do well in the competition, there are many contestants who “failed” at Drag Race but got the most followers on Instagram as the years went by.

Paul O'Grady shares outrage over Lydd pug theft and warns <b>Instagram</b> followers not to walk pets ... thumbnail

Paul O’Grady has warned dog owners not to walk their pets alone following a pug theft on the Romney Marsh.

The TV star, 65, has posted his outrage on Instagram after pensioner Ann Cowlard shared her ordeal on KentOnline.

Mrs Cowlard, who was walking her dogs in Lydd, was approached by a masked stranger in an alleyway before having her 11-year-old pug snatched in a pre-planned theft.

Wednesday’s crime, which has left 72-year-old Mrs Cowlard devastated, has sparked a mammoth social media appeal to locate her missing dog.

Aldington celebrity O’Grady – well known for his love of the four-legged animals – has since shared the missing pet poster to his 443,000 Instagram followers in a bid to help find the pooch.

“An elderly lady was walking her pugs in the village of Lydd in Kent when a big brave man wearing a balaclava walked up and took one,” he wrote.

“The pug that this unmitigated piece of human excrement stole is 11 years old and her owner is totally heart broken.

“If anyone knows or hears anything could you report it?

“Dog theft is one of the lowest crimes that unfortunately is on the rise. Keep an eye on your pet. Don’t leave them alone in the garden and if you can don’t walk them on your own. Take care.”

O’Grady’s, post has been liked by 12,600 people.

The pug theft happened between 10.30am and 11am on Wednesday, near to the Robin Hood Lane in Lydd.

Speaking yesterday, Mrs Cowlard said: “No one’s going to want her aside from me as she’s going deaf and has lost half her teeth. I really hope she has been dumped somewhere and we can find her.

“There was a man all in black – he was either in a balaclava or he had a woolly hat and mask – so I waited for him to come down the alley because of social distancing.

“When he came through he bent down to make a fuss and said ‘you’re lovely doggies aren’t you’.

“He was stroking one of their heads and unclipping the lead with the other hand. I screamed and went hysterical but he picked her up and ran off with her.

“I can’t explain how devastating something like this is.”

Anyone who thinks they have information on the dog theft should contact police on 01843 222289, quoting reference 46/30585/21 or call 01797 320788.

Albert Pujols clears up retirement rumors after wife’s social media post



Albert Pujols clears up retirement rumors after wife's <b>social</b> media post thumbnail

Albert Pujols

Albert Pujols has been put in the awkward spot of clearing up retirement chatter fueled largely by his wife.

The Los Angeles Angels designated hitter clarified Saturday that he has not yet made a decision about his playing career beyond 2021, and no announcement would come until after the season.

“I think our organization, my friends, people that follow my career for 21 years deserve better than just me or her posting something on Instagram,” Pujols said Saturday, via Greg Beacham of the Associated Press. “This thing just got blown out of proportion. My mind is not even there. My mind is on staying focused, healthy, and hopefully trying to help this ballclub win this year, and that’s it. If I feel at the end of the year that that’s it, I’ll announce it (and) go home. But I’m not even there yet.”

Pujols added that he was taking a nap when his wife made the Instagram post that resulted in him waking up to hundreds of missed calls and messages on his phone.

Since the start of the 2017 season, Pujols has hit only .242 and is averaging a modest 18 home runs per season. He turned 41 in January and his contract expires at the end of the season, and he probably wouldn’t find a ton of demand as a free agent.

It’s hard not to love Roy Keane on Instagram.

The Manchester United legend recently joined the social media platform and has brought his unique brand of humour with him.

Keane has now posted five photos, from an opening selfie with his dog to a comical Valentine’s Day message showing him grappling with two West Ham players during his time at Nottingham Forest.

In his latest post, Keane has been getting on his bike.

But despite wearing a protective helmet, the former midfield general insisted he wouldn’t be donning lycra for his cycle.

In it he says: “I’ll wear the helmet but if you see me wearing lycra, run me over.”

The post has already been liked 145,000 times since being posted on Saturday afternoon.

The 49-year-old already has 1.2m followers on his Insta account, but in typical Keano fashion he has yet to follow one single person.
