Rupaul Height, Weight, Age & Girlfriend

An accomplished individual, RuPaul has made himself known as both a TV personality and singer over the years. A well-known drag queen, he released his first studio album, Supermodel of the World in 1993. By the end of the 90’s, he had dropped three records- all of which had charted in the United States. Some of his initial singles include, Back to My Roots, Don’t Go Breaking My Heart (with Elton John), Snapshot, and A Little Bit of Love. Around that same time, he also appeared in the shows, Saturday Night Live, In the House, and Sister Sister.

After a prolonged break, RuPaul returned to the music scene with his fourth album, Red Hot in 2004; it was later followed by Champion in 2009, and Glamazon in 2011. A few highlights from said projects include, Jealous of My Boogie, Cover Girl, People Are People, and Workout. Since then, he has a handful of additional records, including Born Naked which managed to reach number 85 on the Billboard Top 200. His most recent album, American was made available on March 24, 2017. Influenced by the 2016 presidential election, it went on to spawn the single, American.

In 2009, the drag queen himself also created the reality show, RuPaul’s Drag Race. Premiered on VH1, it documented his search for “America’s next drag superstar.” In addition to Rupaul, the judge’s panel also included Santino Rice, Michelle Visage, Ross Matthews, and Carson Kressley, among a couple of others. Relatively popular, the show has since spawned the spin-offs. RuPaul’s Drag U, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars. From its inception until now, the series has won multiple accolades including four Primetime Emmy Awards, a GLAAD Media Award, and an MTV Movie & TV Award.

In addition to his work on reality TV, RuPaul has also appeared in the series, Harvey Beaks (2015), The Real O’Neal (2016), 2 Broke Girls (2016), and Animals (2016). More recently, he has also been playing the part of Lionel in the Netflix comedy, Girlboss. Speaking of acting, he has appeared in several movies throughout his career, for instance, A Mother’s Prayer (1995), A Very Brady Sequel (1996), But I’m a Cheerleader (1999), The Truth About Jane (2000), and Starrbooty (2007). Last year, he also played the part of a weatherman in the movie, Hurricane Bianca. What else has he been up to this year?

On top of his eleventh album, he had issued two compilation records- Remember Me: Essential, Vol. 1 and Essential Vol. 2 earlier this year. At one point, he also made a guest appearance in Todrick Hall’s song, Low.
