RuPaul is a famous singer, actor, model, and songwriter from the United States. He became famous in the 1990s after filming several TV shows and recording successful studio albums. The artist is well known for his drag appearance. He positions himself as both male and female.
RuPaul Andre Charles was born in San Diego on November 17, 1960. His parents were always fighting. When the future celebrity was just 7 years old, they eventually divorced. Later, in some of the interviews, RuPaul said that a poor environment in his family helped him become independent early.
Andre wanted to become famous since childhood. His mother often told the boy a story about meeting a fortuneteller when she was pregnant with him. The old woman told the artist’s mother that the child she was carrying would become a big celebrity. RuPaul chose to believe the story and did everything possible to make it come true. The aspiring artist was a big fan of David Bowie and Flip Wilson.
In 1976, RuPaul moved to Atlanta. He decided to become a drag queen to show his protest against the common rules. It was easy to appear different just by using intimidating outfits. In San Diego, Charles was always an outcast in school. He decided to capitalize on that quality after moving to Atlanta.
