'RuPaul's Drag Race' star Kameron Michaels teases Werq The World tour, reveals how excited she is for her grandma to see her live in Nashville
This year's Werq The World is bigger and better than ever before with bigger venues, sickening production design, and choreography that will have you gagging.
Every season, 'RuPaul's Drag Race' introduces the world to some phenomenal queens, and some of them just happen to be so uniquely talented that we cannot help but monitor their transformations and growth on social media platforms. Kameron Michaels aka The Bodybuilder Barbie is one such queen to have caught our attention at the very beginning of Season 10. While her sisters underestimated her and expected her to serve no purpose other than being the trade of the season, she proved to not only be a polished look queen, but also a lip-sync assassin.
"I think it’s my creativity you don’t see as often," says Michaels in response to the love she receives from fans the world over, further telling MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) that most of her inspirations are pulled out of two very specific sources - video game charters and superheroes. We know many queens who have done it before her, and who will do it after her, but no one gets it right the way Michaels does.
She is able to use her muscles and masculinity to accentuate her looks when need be and hide them to appear feminine and even angelic when she prefers. And now, she gets to share this gift of artistry and her performances with fans everywhere, thanks to Werq The World, which took off in September and has pitstops in the United States and Canada before heading abroad.
This year's Werq The World is bigger and better than ever before with bigger venues, sickening production design, and choreography that will have you gagging. Michaels can be seen performing alongside her Drag Race sisters such as Yvie Oddly (Season 11 winner), Aquaria (Season 10 winner), Monet X Change (Season 10, All Stars 4 winner), Violet Chachki (Season 7 winner), Asia O'Hara (Season 10), Naomi Smalls (Season 9, All Stars 4), Plastique Tiara (Season 11), Kim Chi (Season 8), Vanessa 'Vanjie' Matteo (Season 10, Season 11), and Detox (Season 5, All Stars 2).
"It’s always great to spend time with all the queens since we all have such busy schedules," says Michaels about getting the opportunity to work with the other queens post the show, adding how despite the hiccups when she started touring a year ago, "a precise schedule of knowing what I need to do and when to do it," has made things a lot easier. She also adds how excited she is to perform at her home city of Nashville where all her family - including her grandma - will be in attendance.
