Plastique Tiara commented on her growth from ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ to now
A lot has changed for Plastique Tiara since season 11. During one interview with MTV, the drag performer shared what her experience was like competing on the reality competition series. Particularly, what changed from her time on RuPaul’s Drag Race to now.
“Doing my time on the show, when I went on, I felt like everything was going to be great and dandy, and I was going to slay the competition away. Just because I brought good looks and knew how to do my makeup, you know? But throughout the show, I learned that it’s much more than that. You have to have charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent. The thing I was missing was that I was not confident in myself.
“Now, I learned to be reassured of who I am, and not to compare myself with others,” she continued. “And not to worry so much. Because they want to see me, Plastique Tiara. They don’t want to see Plastique Tiara doing somebody else. I guess that’s what I learned—just to really accept myself to the fullest and not worry about people’s opinions of me.”
Episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race, including some featuring Plastique Tiara of season 11, are available on the streaming platform, Paramount+.
