This isn’t the first time that RuPaul has been honored by a Hall of Fame. The drag personality has also earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
As she told Ellen DeGeneres, “I feel like I’m being knighted. I feel like I’m being knighted. It is the most exciting thing that’s every happened to me. I’ve done a lot of great things. A lot of great things have happened to me. This is the most exciting thing of all.”
Ana Martinez, Producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies, also had something to say about RuPaul getting a star.
“RuPaul is a Revolutionary performer who brought the art of Drag into the American public eye and made it mainstream,” she said. “We are proud to add this groundbreaking entertainer on our historic Hollywood Walk of Fame.”
But that’s not all, RuPaul was also inducted into California’s Hall of Fame and has received several awards such as multiple Emmys. What will RuPaul do next?!
