For the first time ever, RuPaul will host an episode of “Saturday Night Live,” becoming the first Drag Queen to host the show.
The entertainer is set to sashay onto the Studio 8H stage on February 8, with Justin Bieber as the musical guest.

Entertainment Weekly notes that RuPaul once appeared on SNL during a sketch in 1993 episode hosted by Charles Barkley.
“You never know where that next big idea is coming from,” the 59-year-old recently told EW. “You have to be willing to look for it and leave space and room in your consciousness for it to have a seat.”
Congrats Mama Ru!
