Rupaul Net Worth : RuPaul Andre Charles, who is more famous professionally by his mononym RuPaul, is an American actor, drag queen, model, author, television personality, and recording artist who has a Net Worth of $6.5 Million in 2016.
He runs his own TV reality show, named ” RuPaul’s Drag Race”. He says: “We all came into this world naked. The rest is all drag.””
He is most probably the richest drag queen of the world now. But success did not become generous on him overnight. RuPaul was born November 17, 1960, in San Diego, California. In 1980’s he was trying to make some breakthrough as a singer and movie maker but without any larger success. Those were the most testing times of his life, but he kept going on.
He says: “If you don’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?” my goal is always to come from a place of love …but sometimes you just have to break it down for a motherfucker. Look at me–a big old black man under all of this makeup, and if I can look beautiful, so can you.””
He is fond of investing in Real Estate ; not out of sheer interest , but out of his fear of poverty , as he mentions in his Book “RuPaul’s Guide to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Style”, that has not forgotten his days of desperate poverty and he wants to safeguard his financial future from rainy days.
Some of his words are such full of Wisdom and Sagacity:
“If you have goals and the stick-with-it-ness to make things happen, people will feel threatened by you, especially if your goals don’t include them. They believe that if you take a piece of pie, then that leaves less pie for them. Seeing you follow your dreams leaves them realizing that they’re not following theirs. In truth, there is unlimited pie for everyone!” ”
Also, he such astutely advises his fans to:
“Be very careful of what you allow infiltrating your consciousness and subconsciousness. When you watch too much television, you’ll start to feel inferior from all the commercials hard selling the idea that you’re not complete unless you buy their product […] The ad agencies appeal to your fear of not being wanted or loved. It’s the same with the local news. They get you to stay tuned to a constant stream of fear tactics […] It’s as if our culture is addicted to fear and the flat screen is our drug dealer. Don’t allow that crap into your head!” ”
