6 Questions with RuPaul's Drag Race alum Jujubee
Share This Article:
Known for her quick wit, down to earth humour and killer style, Jujubee is one of the most unforgettable queens to appear on RuPaul’s Drag Race, having risen to drag superstardom since competing in the second season of the show and the first season of All Stars. Leading up to her appearance at DragWorld this weekend, The National Student had the chance to chat with Jujubee about drag lingo, shade, and the rise of drag pop culture. For people who don’t know, can you describe what ‘shade’ is? I would describe Shade as the art of subtle insult. It takes wits and smarts to throw shade and it’s definitely not something everyone can get right the first time. What’s the difference between ‘shade’ and ‘T’? T is the simple truth. Shade is the manner in which the T is spilled. What is your favourite phrase that is part of ‘drag lingo’ and least favourite? Yasss, for both. What do you think about Drag Race fans adopting phrases from the show?
