RuPaul Teaches Kids that Reading for Filth is 'Fundamental' on 'SNL'


The drag icon takes down kids' book classics like Eloise and Madeline

RuPaul made drag history when he hosted Saturday Night Live this week. Not only was the episode energized with a sketch in which RuPaul mentors Pete Davidson's stoner ennui guy Chad on becoming the next generation for drag icons but he taught a library of kids how to read for filth by demonstrating with some beloved kids' books.

Inspired by a segment from RuPaul's Drag Race in which the queens don glasses and read each other for filth, the icon really gave it to some of those girls in children's books!

Holding up the book Eloise, RuPaul said, "Ooh, Eloise, you need to call the front desk and get a hot oil treatment for that broom on your head. And Victoria's Secret called. They want their wallpaper back."

Pointing to the cover of Madeline, RuPaul said, "I have bad news, child. The Eiffel Tower is not in the woods. Girl, you betta draw France right, bitch."

"Somebody's trying to act like they've been to Paris. You ain't never been there, girl," RuPaul continued.

Watch the sketch below.
