RuPaul Tells 'Kimmel' He's Been Driving Cars Since He Was 11!

RuPaul paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night (January 8) to dish all about his brand new Netflix show, AJ & the Queen!

The new series, co-created by Sex and the City‘s Michael Patrick King, finds the drag queen superstar hitting the road on tour with a scrappy, streetwise 10-year-old escaping a difficult home life.

RuPaul told Kimmel that he got his start driving at 11-years-old: “I’m from San Diego. When I was 11, my father lived in Cerritos up here near Los Angeles and we would spend the summers with him. He would go to work. 11-years-old, I would steal the keys from his Toyota Corona,” RuPaul recalled. “I would drive around Cerritos in my father’s Toyota Corona, only making right turns because I was too afraid to make left turns. Only making right turns in the neighborhood.”

RuPaul also talked about his love of wrestling, co-creating AJ and the Queen, a crazy experience he had on a Greyhound bus, and directing RuPaul’s Drag Race Live! in Las Vegas.
