RuPaul might be the smartest man on the Internet. She dispenses advice to her Twitter followers (Ru says we shouldn't take our personal pronouns so seriously) on a daily basis that can actually be applied to one's regular old life. Yes, unlike the usual self-inflated shit that comes from famous people's mouths and could never be employed by us plebes (like almost everything Diddy tweets), Ru remembers where he came from. From biscuits to lipstick to balancing one's budget, RuPaul knows all. So listen up. Like the Buddha of Twitter, RuPaul tweets her fortune-cookie advice daily, often in response to followers' questions. Just imagine Ru's majestic and gender-bending voice sharing this nugget of wisdom as you stare down into your overstuffed burrito, effectively turning your lunch break into the most important moment of your life. This advice isn't just applicable to showbiz types; it can work for anyone. Basically, RuPaul is saying that you need to take charge of your own life. When it comes to finances, if you let others screw you around, it is no one's fault but your own. Stand up for yourself, and unabashedly make your paper, child. Like the helpful big sister (or brother) you never had, RuPaul is there for you. He knows how important it is to take care of your body, and between recommending mani/pedi combos and trips to the hairdresser to make your exterior look and feel fierce, he also knows about the less-talked-about stuff. Like a clean colon. So brush your teeth, put on your game face, and schedule that enema, mole removal or adult-braces consultation you've been putting off already.
