She didn’t come to play — Shea Couleé came to slay. This performer made it to the RuPaul’s Drag Race season 9 finale.

Shea Couleé then returned for the spinoff series RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars 5, complete with impressive runways and a new verse for RuPaul’s song “Clap Back.” 

After weeks of showcasing their charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent, this queen snatched the crown, earning to title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.” 

Justin Bieber wanted Shea Couleé’s recording session

Aside from her appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Couleé sometimes releases original music. That includes “Collide,” “Rewind,” and “Feeling So.” In 2022, she returned to the recording studio, even if her session was canceled at the last minute.

“I had a recording session yesterday that got cancelled last minute due to ‘double booking,’” Shea Couleé tweeted. “Found out today they cancelled it because Justin Bieber wanted that room. Like, what season of Drag Race did he even win??”

It’s unclear what project Bieber was working on, although this artist recently released his single “Honest” in 2022. He also performed “Peaches” at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. 

The tweet earned thousands of likes from fans, some noting how unfair it was for the winner to lose her recording slot. As a result, Couleé added another tweet with her own reaction. 

“I just came back to this, and DAMN Y’all,” she added. “It’s all good. It’s not Justin’s fault the studio double booked, and they made right on my future session. I was just trying to be silly. Y’all are clearly all still amped up from Monday’s Twitter activities I see.”

When asked what else she wants to accomplish in her career, Couleé mentioned her love for music and her aspirations to create a legendary album.

“I really want to release just the best drag queen album anyone has ever heard,” Couleé said during an interview with Advocate. “I want to release the album where they’re all like, ‘ok, when it comes to drag queen musicians, Shea Couleé is the one. The only.’”
