RuPaul, the unparalleled queen of self-confidence, has shared invaluable advice on embracing oneself. Renowned as the host of RuPaul’s Drag Race, the Emmy-winning star unveils his secrets to self-love, resilience, and tuning out the haters. In a candid interview, RuPaul reveals how he overcame obstacles and achieved global success, all while staying true to himself and inspiring millions around the world.

RuPaul Shares Advice on Dealing With Haters

RuPaul’s rise to fame has been nothing short of extraordinary. From his humble beginnings as a go-go dancer in 1990s New York City, performing at iconic venues like the Pyramid Club, to becoming a media mogul and global drag sensation, he has never lost sight of his authenticity.

“What other people say about me is none of my business!” RuPaul said.

This powerful mindset fuels his performances, as he pretends stepping onto the stage as if he were entering his beloved Mama’s living room. Once in this mindset, with the reminder of his roots, he gains strength within, feeling like he’s actually in front of his mother.

In addition, RuPaul emphasizes the importance of doing things for oneself, seeking validation from within rather than relying on others. This mantra resonates deeply with those facing adversity and serves as a guiding principle for overcoming challenges.

Within the interview, the Emmy Award winner also reflected on the changes in drag over the past decade. He celebrates its increased accessibility and the positive impact it has had on society’s perception of the LGBTQ+ community. Encouraging fans to support this community, RuPaul suggests supporting the ACLU Drag Defense Fund through donations. The fund protects the rights and freedoms of drag queens.

RuPaul Reflects on His Show’s Success

Since the debut of RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2009, the show has achieved success, spawning multiple spinoffs and international editions. Despite its global dominance, RuPaul is not surprised by its triumph. His unwavering self-confidence and belief in his vision have then propelled him to remarkable heights.

“I always saw myself as a star and I always imagined myself having my own show,” RuPaul said.

RuPaul’s journey is an inspiration to us all. His resilience, self-assuredness, and refusal to let others define him, serve as a light for those striving to love themselves. Tuning out the noise of the haters, one can embrace RuPaul’s empowering words and embark on our own transformative journeys.
