Beantown Beauty Puts Her “Spin” on Chitown

Last Saturday, SPIN welcomed drag royalty as one of RuPaul’s “girls” took to the stage.  This is not Miss JuJuBee ‘s , first time in the Windy City. She was actually here earlier this year but loves “Boystown “so much, she just had to come back  Following her performance to a packed house, I was fortunate to get to talk to the “Beantown” queen. She was so sweet and couldn’t wait to give her pearls of wisdom.

When asked what she learned from appearing on RuPaul’s drag race, she said “Integrity, Curiosity, ” then she laughed and said “And to watch out for my stuff cuz bitches steal!”  She loves coming to the Windy City because there are so many different kinds of people. She adores both Spin and Hydrate because they accept her the way she is.  Miss Jujubee also is a huge animal lover and has two furbabies, who she jokingly says she loves more than her boyfriend. When asked who her idols were  she calmly replied “Of course, RuPaul, Beyonce, and she then she touched with me when she said every woman in her own family.  “These women are part of what make up the character of JuJubee.”   She is an actress at heart which I adored as we bonded. “Drag is an act and that is why I love it. I can be so  many different characters.”

Her most exciting adventure was very recent, she got to travel to South Africa. In this part of the world, “Drag Race” and “Drag U” are pirated and then watched .  She thought that the country was absolutely gorgeous  and “they know how to treat people. After all, isn’t it the motherland? Other doors have opened for her as well, because of the drag race.

Jujubee also praised her “sisters” that appeared on Season Four that came from Chicago.  You can watch the exciting Season Four premiere in January on LOGO.  RuPaul’s Drag Race is also now available on DVD to relive  those wig pulling , tear filled moments.Also want to give a shout out to Ally, Robert , and the gang at SPIN for a fun filled evening.
