This season, RuPaul's Drag Race contestant Miss Fame has won viewers over with her sophisticated style, but her evolution into elegance began in the most unlikely of places, her family farm in California.
A former male model — her real name is Kurtis Dam-Mikkelsen — Miss Fame four years ago made the move to New York to work as a makeup artist. Before long, she was donning drag, drawing inspiration from Old Hollywood glamour gals like Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe, and delighting her Drag Race costars with stories about the chickens she cared for as a boy.
This week Miss Fame releases "Rubber Doll," the first single from her upcoming debut album, and the song's lyrics, taken from her personal journal, detail her story.
In the video for the up-tempo dance track, produced by the same team that produced season 6 star Adore Delano's debut album, Miss Fame serves fantasy fetish realness in several sexy latex costumes.
