The world’s most famous DQ RuPaul has advice if you ever want to be a drag queen.
For those of us in the UK – that means being an Estate Agent.
When asked what advice he would give, RuPaul said, “get your real estate licence” – because it’s not likely you’ll be making enough for your rent, at least in the beginning.
RuPaul, who has been a drag queen since the 80s, has a career that spans films, music, podcasts and, of course, one of the world’s most popular reality TV shows, RuPaul’s Drag Race.
RuPaul went on to say that show business is a “hard business” and that you shouldn’t lose your head if you get a glimpse of fame. She told us, “Show business is a hard business. Most people see all the glamour and their names in the paper but that’s just such a small part of what it takes to maintain a career.
“You have to be very resilient, you have to know thyself and you have to have an understanding of what is being asked of you by the public.”
Finally, RuPaul has this final piece of advice, “What is it they get from you? What your value is?”
Drag is a business baby – what’s your USP?
