RuPaul Serves Selfie Love In New Google Pixel Ad

"I don't need anybody else to have a good time!"

If you listen to RuPaul’s podcast, What’s the Tee?, you might remember a recent episode where Ru and his squirrel friend co-host, Michelle Visage, voiced their frustration with Apple after the news of the tech company slowing down old iPhone batteries.

Maybe some employees at Google also took note of Ru’s grievances because the glamazon goddess is now the newest face of Google’s iPhone competitor, the Pixel 2.


In a new ad for the phone, RuPaul—looking like she just sashayed off of the Drag Race runway—is having fun with her Pixel while on a fancy romantic Valentine’s Day dinner by herself.

“This Valentine’s Day I’m my own sweetheart,” Ru says in the commercial. When the server comes over and asks Ru about not having a Valentine she delivers some classic RuPaul sass:

“Child please, I’m my own Valentine. I don’t need anybody else to have a good time!”


The Drag Race host also made an appearance at a Pixel event on the eve of Valentine’s Day, where one of the partygoers tweeted a pic of Ru and said that he spoke about “life and meditation” with the queen of all queens. Of course Ru would turn a smartphone party into a spiritual conversation.

Come through, Google!

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 3 airs Thursdays at 8/7c on VH1.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
