How Bob the Drag Queen met Madonna
In an exclusive interview alongside Monét X Change about their new BOMO Beauty line, RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Bob the Drag Queen tells EW‘s Quick Drag podcast the story of how he first met Madonna – which eventually led to him joining her on all the shows of the upcoming Celebration Tour.
Lola, her daughter, recommended me for her Pride show – recommended that I host the show, actually. When I got there, me and Madonna got close, it was my birthday at the time, she got me cupcakes and sang me happy birthday.
[Me and Madonna] hit it off. The gaggiest moment was like, I have a number for Madonna, but I don’t know if it’s the real number, there’s no way Madonna gave me her real number. Someone on her team was like, ‘I can’t give you Madonna’s real number, but you can tell me the number you have, and I’ll tell you if that’s the right number. I read it and they were like, ‘Oh my God, Madonna gave you her phone number.’
