Rupaul You Better Work Meme

RuPaul was born on November 17, 1960, in San Diego, California, as RuPaul Andre Charles. RuPaul's parents split when he was seven, and he spent his adolescence in Atlanta, Georgia, with his sister and her husband. RuPaul was the only male of his parents' four children and grew up wearing his sisters' clothing and dabbling in cross-dressing, idolizing artists like as Diana Ross and Jane Fonda. RuPaul attended the Northside School of Performing Arts in Atlanta, and although he did not graduate, it was a significant step in getting his feet wet in the realm of performance and, eventually, show business. RuPaul took the next step in 1982, when he submitted a picture of himself to a local TV show called The American Music Show, requesting an appearance. He was soon appearing on the show on a regular basis, frequently with his newly formed band, RuPaul and the U-Hauls.
