'RuPaul's Drag Race' Star Shangela Chooses Between Cher, Diana Ross & Madonna in '1 Has 2 Go'

Shangela Laquifa Wadley, who is currently in the running to take home the crown on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3, took some time to play “1 Has 2 Go” with Billboard, choosing between musical icons, dating apps, and much more.

Given the choices of Cher, Diana Ross or Madonna, Shangela eliminates Madonna, explaining that “she came against good old Lady Gaga and I live for Lady Gaga.”

Asked to choose between the ball culture houses of Xtravaganza, Labeija and Mizrahi, the drag queen refuses to pick one, stating, “I’m not coming against the ball queens cause I’m not trying to get stabbed outside in New York – not that they stab anybody, but I saw Paris is Burning and mm-mm! I love ‘em all.”

When selecting from Grindr, Scruff and Tinder, she nixes Tinder because she’s not a “swiping person.” Meanwhile, given the option of heels, nails or wigs, Shangela ditches the heels.

The “halleloo” queen is also asked to remove either Destiny’s Child, Spice Girls or TLC, and she selects the “Survivor” singers “only so Beyonce can go ahead and be a solo star.”

Check out the video above to find out more from Shangela, including who she eliminates out of Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes and what she does when asked to get rid of one of her fellow Drag Race sisters: Alaska, Bob the Drag Queen or Sasha Velour.
