DRAG PROFILE Veronica Pop

NAME "I got my name from one of my biggest inspirations: Britney Spears. I love the name Veronica and Britney is a POP star, so that is how I got Pop!"

FIRST DRAG PERFORMANCE "I started doing drag about 6-and-a-half years ago in Orange County, California. It all started in 2012 at a Halloween party!"

DRAG INSPIRATION "My biggest inspiration—strong women in the industry like Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, and Britney Spears. I love women that are survivors [despite their] struggles."

GO-TO NUMBER TO SLAY A CROWD "If you ask anyone, they will tell you [laughs]! 'Into You' by Ariana Grande! It's such a bop and it has every element a drag queen song should have: a slow intro; a hyper chorus and a strong ending. It's my favorite song to perform. Funny story, at my home bar—Charlie's Chicago—we have a DJ that mixes during my shows and he has a rule that I can only perform that song once every six months! [Laughs.] I hate it!"

FUN FACT "I'm a film major. I went to college for film and photography for almost three years."

GUILTY PLEASURE "Staying home and watching documentaries about the most random things, like how candy is made, or what happens to old cars. I will stay up 'til, like, 6 am on YouTube watching them!"

WHERE CAN WE CATCH YOU "You can catch me performing/hosting at Charlie's Chicago every Friday for #POPOFF and every Saturday for #POPular. Catch me on Sundays at The River for our Brunch of Bitches Drag Brunch."
