Who doesn't love RuPaul?
He has his own reality show, RuPaul’s Drag Race, that's already in its ninth season, the most infectious personality, and a positive attitude that inspires us all to be our best and truest selves, all with a wiggle and a wink of course!
Not to mention, he's the proud generator of inspirational and downright hilarious quotes!
As RuPaul reaffirmed to Paper Magazine, “…the motherf-cking drag queen" is here to say whatever comes to mind and stay along for this amazing ride! And in a meme world that insists on being extra, RuPaul has set his own standard by being extra his whole life — and it’s proven to have worked wonders!
But how did it all begin? RuPaul Andrew Charles started his career hitting up the Atlanta and New York City club scene. His growing fandom was soon met with a successful music career, modeling gigs, his eponymous talk show, The RuPaul Show on MTV, and becoming the first face of M.A.C. Cosmetics that helped raise over $22 million dollars for the M.A.C. AIDS fund.
