Drag Queen Amethyst On RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15
RuPaul’s Drag Race season 15 is here, and so are the world-class drag queens vying for the crown. Among them, Amethyst — a mix of pop princess and meme queen — seemed like a victor right from the start! Pretty, witty, and fabulous, Amethyst has already garnered hundreds of thousands of fans on social media, and she’s pretty sure her kooky comedy will win her the top spot on the drag race as well.
“What likes it’s hard? Catch me on the ICONIC 15th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, premiering January 6th on MTV!” Amethyst promoted the show on her IG.
But though Amethyst was in it to win it, she has no idea why she joined the show or how was she selected. “I don’t know. I still can’t believe that… I’m like… ‘You got the right Amethyst right?’” she explained.
However, now that she’s in the show, she’s confident that her personality will excel over that of others and this will be her key factor in winning the show.
RuPaul’s Drag Race season 15 is set to hit the screen on January 6, 2023, with the biggest grand prize in franchise history i.e. of $200 thousand. But that’s not the only change hitting the competition this season. The show’s now moving to MTV, making it the Emmy-winning show’s third home.
Joining Amethyst for the 15th installment of Drag Race are her co-stars Anetra, Aura Mayari, Irene Dubois, Jax, Loosey LaDuca, Luxx Noir London, Malaysia Babydoll Foxx, Marcia Marcia Marcia, Mistress Isabelle Brooks, Princess Poppy, Robin Fierce, Salina EsTitties, Sasha Colby, Sugar, and Spice.
Drag Queen Amethyst Job
Amethyst might be a drag, but for a living, she worked as a “Direct Support Professional” at BARC – Bristol Adult Resource Center Inc — an advancing personal growth and community.
Besides that, she also held the job of a “Social Media Director” at Six • Twenty • Five Beauty BAR, and a “Beauty Advisor” at Ulta Beauty.
Now, talking about her time as a drag queen, Amethyst admits that she’s still in the beginning phase. Just starting her career in early 2020, that star is still trying to figure herself out. But whilst she’s looking for a direction, she does acknowledge that her brand name is based on her “stupidity.”
“You’re probably gonna laugh a lot in Amethyst show. I’m so stupid. And that’s my brand — stupidity,” she explained.
But someday, she’d like to be a pop star. And the days don’t seem too far either. She’s already producing and writing her own music! Find her music on Spotify. Some of her popular are Boy Toy, Ate, Part, The Baddest, 4real, Oh Well, Baby Doll, and My Type.
Also, thanks to her popularity, Amethyst’s mechs (tees, CDs, and portraits) were selling fast.
As for her education, Amethyst graduated from The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in NYC in 2016.
Fun Fact: After three years of working as a drag, Amethyst only landed her first solo show in September 2022, at Troupe429.
