Lagoona Bloo Is Ready To Compete On RuPaul's Drag Race
Lagoona Bloo Is Ready To Compete On 'RuPaul's Drag Race'
This NYC queen is ready to compete for the title of America's Next Drag Superstar.
Lagoona Bloo wants to enter the werkroom.
Based in New York City, the queen has earned herself quite a following from her gigs and hit singles as a recording artist.
In fact, the queen just dropped her latest music video for her empowering song "Elle Woods," which features cameos from popular RuPaul's Drag Race alum including Kerri Colby, Olivia Lux, and Marcia Marcia Marcia.
Since she's built a name for herself already, it only makes sense that the next big step in her career would be competing on the mainstage in front of RuPaul herself.
"It's going to happen whenever they decide to cast me! I've auditioned every year since season 12. I have thrown my hat into that ring every year. I've also audition for both seasons of Queen of the Universe as well," Bloo tells PRIDE.
Even though she hasn't been cast on a Drag Race show yet, the queen is using her time efficiently by focusing on her music and crafting herself as a professional queen.
"The universe brings you opportunities when they're meant for you. Honestly, I'm a little grateful that I haven't had that opportunity yet, because if it weren't for that, I don't know if I would be making music. I don't know if I would be inspired to work so hard. Had I not had that experience of getting that rejection, I don't know if I would be here today."
While Bloo continues to slay the music game and scene in NYC, she is still manifesting a werkroom entrance on an upcoming season.
"I am ready for it. I would love to do it. I am going to continue auditioning. It would be a huge dream, but it's not up to me. All I can do is keep working. It's not up to me, it's up to RuPaul! RuPaul, call me."
Although she's faced rejection from Drag Race a few times, Bloo's personal struggles as a queer entertainer have helped her create a thick skin that only motivates her to do better.
"It took me a really long time to get here. I actually had a really rough year last year. Last year was one of the hardest years of my life. I just went through a breakup. I lost my dad in the beginning of the year and I wasn't cast on Drag Race again. That was one of the lowest points of my life. It forced me to really look inside."
Bloo's resilience has helped her turn her life around as she's learned from her toughest times to stay grounded and look at things with a sense of gratitude.
"I was looking for validation everywhere else. I realized that the biggest person who needs to love me more than anyone else is myself! I'm really grateful. All of that darkness just became fertilizer to blossom and bloom into this knowledgable, wise, kind, person. I know that I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing. I know I was put on the Earth to be Lagoona and to hopefully inspire other people."
