DRAG PROFILE Bella DeBalle

NAME "Bella DeBalle is inspired by my favorite movie, Beauty and the Beast. I wanted a really

stupid pun name because I'm an idiot, but I also wanted something glamorous and regal sounding because she's a QUEEN, LADIES!"

FIRST DRAG PERFORMANCE "I began doing drag about two years ago. My first performance was at Roscoe's Drag Race hosted by T Rex. I was hella nervous, but she drunkenly told me I was funny and that I should keep coming out and so I did."

DRAG INSPIRATION "I'm a musical theater baby and a comedian, so lots of my inspiration comes from other comics and artists. Also, my paint is definetly overexaggerated and almost alien-like, so I love mixing alternative and glamour together to create one giant mess of a drag artist."

GO-TO NUMBER TO SLAY A CROWD "'Holding Out For a Hero,' but the Shrek 2 version because, girl, it makes a crowd lose their MINDS!"

FAVORITE PIECE IN YOUR CLOSET "I have a stunning vinyl dress made for me by the fabulous Yolo Ono—it's hot pink with yellow accents and I feel like one of the Real Housewives of Pluto when I wear it!"

SPILL SOME T

"I'm an introvert who plays an extrovert onstage. I have a lot of anxiety in large crowds when I'm out of drag and I'm super dry. Bella allows me to put on a persona that oozes confidence and wit that I wish I had in my day-to-day life."

GUILTY PLEASURE

Degrassi: Next Class. No one come for me— I keep re-watching it and that's okay.

WHERE CAN WE CATCH YOU

"Charlie's Chicago every Saturday, hosting Popular with my sister Veronica Pop ( @vickypop ). You can also catch me every second Friday at 10 p.m. hosting Spectrum."
