At the 2019 California Hall of Fame ceremony, RuPaul talked about growing up in California and how it changed the way he works.
RuPaul was born on November 17, 1960, in San Diego, California. He is the son of Ernestine “Toni” Fontenette (who married Irving Andrew Charles) and Irving Andrew Charles. Both of his parents grew up in Louisiana. His mother gave him the name “Ru,” which comes from the word “roux,” which is the base for gumbo and other creole stews and soups. Finding Your Roots says that 70% of his DNA is from Africa and 30% is from Europe. [In 1967, when his parents got a divorce, he and his three sisters moved in with their Seventh-day Adventist mother. He went to Patrick Henry High School and was raised as a Catholic.
RuPaul and his sister Renetta moved to Atlanta, Georgia, when they were 15 so they could study performing arts there. In the years that followed, RuPaul had trouble making it as a musician and a filmmaker. He worked at Atlanta’s famous Plaza Theatre in the 1980s. In 1982, he made his first appearance on The American Music Show, an Atlanta public access variety show where he often appeared over the years.: 59 He also helped make the low-budget film Star Booty and an album with the same name. In Atlanta, Larry Tee ran the Celebrity Club, where RuPaul often danced at the bar or played with his band, Wee Wee Pole. RuPaul and another drag queen, Vaginal Davis, also sang back up for Glen Meadmore. In 1989, RuPaul first got a lot of attention across the country when he danced in the video for “Love Shack” by The B-52s.
In the early 1990s, RuPaul was known by his full birth name and worked in clubs in Georgia. At first, RuPaul did gender-bending performances. Later, she performed solo and with other bands at a number of New York City nightclubs, including the Pyramid Club. In the one-act science-fiction parody “My Pet Homo,” written and directed by Jon Michael Johnson for Cooper Square Productions, he played opposite the New York City drag performer Mona Foot (Nashom Benjamin). He went to the Wigstock drag festival every year for a long time and was in the documentary Wigstock: The Movie. In the 1990s, RuPaul was known in the UK for his appearances on the Channel 4 show Manhattan Cable. This was a weekly show about New York’s public-access television system that was made by World of Wonder and hosted by American Laurie Pike.
The dance/house album Supermodel of the World was made by RuPaul in 1993. It was put out by the rap label Tommy Boy, and its dance track “Supermodel (You Better Work)” became a big hit. Since grunge and gangsta rap were popular at the time, the music video was a surprise hit on MTV. The highest the song got on the Billboard Hot 100 was 45. It was on the UK Singles Chart and got as high as number 39. The song did best on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, where it reached number 2 at its highest point. The song became popular because it was played on the radio and played a lot on MTV. It also got played on popular TV shows like The Arsenio Hall Show.
I don’t care what other people think of me. I always do what I do. I don’t care what other people think of me. I don’t pick projects so that people don’t think of me as a certain type of person. I pick projects that get me excited. I think the problem is that people won’t try to understand what drag is from a different point of view than their own.
His next two singles/videos, “Back to My Roots” and “A Shade Shady (Now Prance),” both went to the top of the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart and added to his campy image. Between them, they didn’t make a video for “House of Love.” Even though it got to number 68 on the UK Singles Chart, it didn’t make any U.S. charts.
RuPaul got a contract to model for MAC Cosmetics. On many billboards, he was dressed in drag, and the words “I am the MAC girl” were often written next to him. He also wrote a book about his life called Lettin’ It All Hang Out. He helped get the word out about the book by making a guest appearance on ABC’s All My Children in 1995. As part of a storyline, he was on the set of Erica Kane’s talk show “The Cutting Edge” to talk about the book.
The next year, he got his own talk show on VH1 called The RuPaul Show. On it, he talked to famous people and musical acts and interviewed them. Diana Ross, Nirvana, Duran Duran, Pat Benatar, Mary J. Blige, Bea Arthur, Dionne Warwick, Cyndi Lauper, Olivia Newton-John, Beenie Man, Pete Burns, Bow Wow Wow, and the Backstreet Boys were among the famous guests. Michelle Visage was his co-host, and the two of them also worked together on WKTU radio. In one episode, Chi Chi LaRue and Tom Chase were on as guests to talk about the gay porn industry.
Later that year, he put out his second album, Foxy Lady. This time, it was on the Rhino Records label, which is based in L.A. Even though he was becoming more famous, he didn’t make the Billboard 200. But their first single, “Snapshot,” did well in the dance market and reached number four on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. It also didn’t do very well in the mainstream, peaking at number 95 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was his second and only other Hot 100 song up to that point (1996? “A Little Bit of Love,” the second single, only made it to number 28 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. The album had covers of “Work That Body,” a 1981 Diana Ross song co-written by Paul Jabara, and “If You Were a Woman and I Was a Man,” which Bonnie Tyler first sang. RuPaul has performed at gay pride events and many gay clubs because he has a lot of fans in the gay community. During this time, RuPaul helped get the New York City radio station WKTU back on the air, and he would host the morning show there until 1998.
In 1997, he put out his third album, Ho Ho Ho, which was a Christmas album. He has been in many movies as a guest star. In both Brady Bunch movies, he played Jan’s female guidance counselor. In 1997, RuPaul and Martha Wash worked together to make a new version of the classic disco song “It’s Raining Men.” The song was included on the 1998 compilation CD RuPaul’s Go Go Box Classics, which was a collection of some of his favorite dance songs by other artists. This was his third and last release through Rhino Records and a major record label. During this time, he was in TV commercials for Webex and magazine ads for the company. In 2002, he made the Eurodance song “You’re No Lady” with Brigitte Nielsen, who went by the name Gitta.
