RuPaul got himself a little slice of herstory Sunday night when he won the Emmy for Outstanding Host of a Reality Series for RuPaul’s Drag Race. In a wide-ranging interview before the Emmy nominations were announced, RuPaul gave Vulture the now-infamous quote that he could care less about mainstream awards recognition: “I’d rather have an enema than an Emmy.” In a video shot by RuPaul’s best squirrel friend, Michelle Visage, RuPaul accepts his Emmy and also acknowledges that Emmys and enemas are not mutually exclusive. Condragulations, RuPaul. May you have many more Emmys and enemas in your life.
