RuPaul Offers Henry Rollins Some Heartfelt Advice On Romance

"Life is now, for you and I, very short, in that we might be over the 50-yard line as far as our life. Don't mess around with people. Mess around on your own time."

That's Henry Rollins, the lead singer of seminal punk band Black Flag, talking to RuPaul about relationships in the second episode of the web series RuPaul Drives...

The series (which shares a basic concept with Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee), features RuPaul driving various well-known friends and acquaintances around LA while talking to them about life.

In this second episode, the talk is all about relationships. Rollins has never shied away from introspection or sharing his emotions in his work as a singer, broadcaster and performer (here's his spoken word performance, '50' - if you want to hear his take on Canadian protesters, skip to the 15:30 mark) but his chat with RuPaul is an interesting moment of self-examination through conversation.
