RuPaul to release inspirational book
RuPaul wants to become your new spiritual adviser.
The drag star and entrepreneur, 57, plans to release an inspirational book, “GuRu,” this October.
“This book is a talisman, a guidebook for living,” he told People. “[It’s] a collection of meaningful phrases and quotes that have helped me navigate the chaos of modern life.”
RuPaul, whose full name is RuPaul Andre Charles, has been a reality TV fixture for many years now since he launched “RuPaul’s Drag Race” in 2009. He’s also appeared in numerous movies and television shows in addition to singing.
As he tells the publication, the book will also feature more than 80 pictures from his life.
“I hope that fans will use the book for inspiration,” he said. “It offers beauty, but also advice, insight and attitude. It’s more than just a bunch of pretty pictures.”
He added that his performances are also closely aligned with a higher power.
“We are spiritual beings having a human experience,” he carefully explained. “If we approach the experience without judgment, we can open up a vast vista of unlimited colors, textures, shapes and ideas. It’s not important for me to know what God is, it’s only important for me to know that God is, and that we are all an extension of that grace.”
Whatever may come from the book, it’s just a small piece of his growing empire.
“Please. I’ve had eight [Emmy] nominations,” he quipped to The Post’s Cindy Adams in 2017. “And won an Emmy last year. People are finally catching on to me. But wait … next is a TV movie about me. Not filmed yet. No title yet. Not cast yet. I won’t play me. It’s maybe Willow Smith.”
“GuRu” will be the star’s second book. He released “Workin’ It!: RuPaul’s Guide to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Style” in 2010.
