“I looked skinny and young and pretty and then I sang on Amy Winehouse karaoke, and the next thing you know, the owner asked me to work there once a week for a salary of 80 pounds so I did it within a year.”

Baga then realized that she could make a career out of what she was doing for fun, so decided to do her stunts around the country.

“I won a contest called Drag Idol, and then I just became a famous drag queen in London,” she said. “All my accommodations were in the West End and then I decided to audition for Drag Race and the rest is history.”

“The longer I do it, the more successful I am,” she added.

And success seemed to follow Baga Chipz as she reached the finals of the whole season on Drag Race and UK VS the World.

She said: “It’s crazy when you’re on that show, anything can happen. It’s exciting because you don’t know what’s going to happen next.

“You don’t know who’s going to be the guest judge, who’s going to go home, someone might show up. And UK VS the world was filmed in a lockdown, like a proper lockdown, nobody came out of the house. , so honestly it’s nice to be out.

“I spent a year stuck indoors and then obviously I could talk to people and that was amazing.

“I’m lucky with my Drag Race experiences because I’ve made it to the finals in both and I just love making great phones.”

Her time on the show has earned her a huge fan base, but sadly the support has also come with hate and Baga admits she can’t believe the “boldness” of the show. online trolls.

“I mean I can’t be that bad otherwise I wouldn’t have half a million followers.

“Not just me, but anyone on television – you have to have really thick skin because people will come to see how you look, they’ll call your name, comment on your weight.

“I’m very lucky in that respect because things like that don’t let me down.

“I wouldn’t have the guts to send hate on someone from a TV show, so haters, I just feel sorry for them. I see the comments and I’ll be like ‘the f* * What’s up.”

But for those who hate Baga, as she says, there are more fans and people who attend each of her shows.

She said: “I get messages every day from young people, old people thanking me for helping them get out. I have people tell me I saved their lives, it’s crazy. It’s great. great. It’s all worth it.”

“I also have crazy fans who come to every show and I’ve met them and they’re crying – anyone would think I’m Madonna or Michael Jackson.

So what’s outstanding about Baga these days?

Most recently, Baga and Crystal, also from season one, fought each other to convince audiences that they were the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) drag queen at Strongbow’s Greatest Debating Club of All Time. ULTRA.

Baga joked: “We had to argue and pitch to the audience who was the best drag queen, but I think it was rigged because Crystal won.

“Yes, I think it’s fixed because the audience picked Crystal and as I said, these people have no clue what they’re talking about.”

At this event, the reason Baga became the best drag queen was simple. She’s “so amazing”, she’s “one of the most famous women in Britain” and she looks “like a young Princess Diana.”

Baga even tried to bribe the audience, but to no avail.

She said: “I actually tried to bribe the audience and tell them I would get them a glass of wine if they voted for me, but it didn’t work out.

“Crystal decided to stick a nail, like a ten-inch nail in her nose, so she’s bringing out all the gimmicks and I didn’t know we were carrying props!”

And for aspiring drag queens looking to get into the industry, Baga shared her top tips – warning that it’s tough, but as long as you’re authentic, you’ll be fine. alright.

“Just be yourself. Or if you’re a character, make it a character you’ve never seen before,” she suggests.

“Makes people think ‘oh my god this person is so different. But be yourself and be authentic. You have to put work into it too, it costs a lot of money.’

“When I first started, even though I got push from charity shops, but then when you go to Drag Race, there is a certain expectation that you have to look at the bee’s knees all the time. good.

“It’s a very competitive industry.”

So how has Baga stood the test of time in the industry so far? Well, she thinks she’s very ‘British’ and “normal as hell.”

“I think what has helped me along the way and what people can relate to is that I don’t consider **t,” she added while laughing.

“I like fish and chips, pints, I’m basically a paddler.

“I just love a night out, I like entertaining people – I think I’m fine. I’m never upset with anyone. I’m just myself!”
