Lady Gaga pulls off quite a trick on the drag queens in the season 9 premiere of RuPaul's Drag Race.
Gaga is the special guest on RuPaul's Drag Race season 9 opener and her entrance is epic to say the least. The pop superstar pretends to be a drag queen named Ronnie in the premiere, entering the room in heavy makeup and hair. The contestants stare in awe of who they perceive to be a fellow queen, and Gaga even has a confessional in which she wears overalls and sports an exaggerated Jersey accent, pretending to be Ronnie.
She then takes off her hat and reveals her blonde locks, showing that it's really her.

Host RuPaul appeared on Good Morning America this week and discussed Gaga's big guest appearance, including how it came together.
"She [Lady Gaga] tweeted my several years ago, but it took this long to get the schedules together," RuPaul said. "She's on the show opener. It is so much fun, everyone is going to love it."
Of course, Gaga fits right in with drag culture considering she's dressed as a man for her performance of "Yoü and I" at the MTV VMAs, and literally has the phrase "don't be a drag, just be a queen" in her smash hit "Born This Way".
"She started in New York City clubs, like myself, she started around drag queens and the downtown culture so she felt right at home," RuPaul noted.
RuPaul also spoke to the growing importance of RuPaul's Drag Race in these modern times, where the nation is so divided.
"I just love that in this political culture right now that we get to show that love is strong," he said. "We are Americans and we believe in open hearts. We believe in love, acceptance and this show is so important more now than ever."
RuPaul's Drag Race season 9 premieres Friday, March 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on its new network, VH1.
