Los Angeles, CA (Entertainment Weekly) — All hail the queens! With #AllStars5, these @RuPaulsDragRace legends have two goals: entertain us through dark times and rewrite their own destinies as the tenacious #DragRace stars they were born to be. share.ew.com/78xdnjV; Story by: @joeynolfi.

'RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars 5' cast — Shea Couleé, Miz Cracker, Jujubee, more — tell EW about surviving coronavirus and the 'Drag Race' economy.
It’s a bright morning in mid-May, and the drag superstar is shut inside her home, socially distanced and sheltered due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak that’s kept her from performing in public after nationwide venue closures (no theater gigs or world tours) and restrictions on gatherings (goodbye, tips) issued a potentially catastrophic halt to her career. With a team of producers coaching her through EW’s latest digital cover photo shoot via Zoom, Couleé — soundtracked by SZA’s “Supermodel” — seems unbothered as she strikes poses in front of a self-made backdrop. The clear plastic chair propping her up briefly edges into frame, between swishes of black feathers (a see-through prop never clashes), and it’s apparent the RuPaul’s Drag Race season 9 finalist has thought through every aspect of this production. Even the threat of a pandemic can’t stop a queen from finding a way to turn any old seat into a throne.
