Detox Talks ‘Drag Race’ Fame and Diva Behavior
When it comes to “Drag Race” legends a few names come to mind: Bianca Del Rio, Sharon Needles, Alaska Thunderfuck, [Insert your fav here] and of course Detox!
The legendary “RuPaul’s Drag Race” All Star has made her way back to the Hey Qween! couch and she’s here to dish on her fabulous life as a world-famous fashionista.
This sick’ning qween has traveled the world, befriended celebrities and has worked with some of the fashion world’s biggest names.
She’s the shining example of the amazing things one can do with their 15 minutes of fame and she’ll be the first one to tell you not to squander that opportunity.
“It’s been such an awesome experience,” Detox explained in regards to the Drag Race.
“It’s so life-changing and that’s why I’m so vocal about how some of the contestants sort of just piss away their opportunities and act like assholes.”
From some of her Season 5 sisters to some of the show’s newest queens, Detox hasn’t been afraid to call out a contestant on their diva behavior.
“We’re so f*cking lucky to be handed this huge platform and amazing responsibility and really a life changing experience. It’s so humbling and it’s really unfortunate to see some of my sisters not really taking full advantage of that.”
She adds, “I see these queens buying into their own hype early on, feeding into their own bullshit and acting like divas.”
As for her own success, Detox credits hard work and willingness to play the “Hollywood” game.
“The reason I work so much is because I have a great work ethic and people want to work with me,” she reveals. “I show up, I do my job, I’m courteous and I have a lot of fun with everybody. That’s really important and it’s kind of like you have to do that in this industry, you have to schmooze and play the game. I think I’ve played it pretty well.”
