Gay Twitter just learned how to pronounce Tove Lo’s name

You’re all going to have a few surprises when the next Swedish version of drag race spell.

This week, RuPaul announced that Tove Lo was the extra special guest for episode six of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7. However, Mama Ru’s pronunciation of Tove Lo’s name took a long time. drag race fans – and pop music fans in general – by surprise.

For instance, Canada’s Drag Race Season 2 star Eve 6000 wrote, “Is that how you pronounce Tove Lo!?!?” The Queen’s tweet has received over 23,000 likes and over 3,500 retweets at the time of writing.

In 2017, Tove Lo released the music video for “Disco Tits” featuring an off-brand Muppet who mispronounced his name. In the video, Tove Lo herself corrected the character with the correct pronunciation.

As early as 2014, Tove Lo was interviewed by the BBC after the resounding success of his single “Habits (Stay High)”. Even back then, the BBC made sure to note how fans should pronounce the popstar’s name.

“For the record, it’s pronounced ‘Too-veh Lu’ but Tove doesn’t care [how] people approach it phonetically,” writer Mark Savage wrote in the article.

All things considered, this information has been around for a while – many fans just haven’t caught up to it. It doesn’t seem like Tove Lo is entirely bothered by people mispronouncing her name, but it’s understandable that RuPaul did his best to say it correctly on the latest episode of All Stars 7.

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7 is now streaming on Paramount+.
