Personal Quote:

[on his reality show "Drag Race"] We're looking for showgirls, not some Tom, Dick or Harry who happens to have a pussycat wig and a pair of cha-cha heels. But hopefully we are inspiring a new crop of queens. The truth is we're all in drag. We're all playing dress-up. Even if you work on Wall Street or at McDonald's, you're putting on a persona.

Trivia:

His #1 dance single "Supermodel (You Better Work)" was covered by 1980s dance-pop singer Taylor Dayne for The Lizzie McGuire Movie (2003) soundtrack, though some lyrics were changed to tailor the film's younger audience. See more »
