The popular queen won over the hearts of Drag Race fans around the world as the crowned Miss Congeniality from season 10, winner of All Stars 4, and runner-up of All Stars 7.
"I've done more seasons of Drag Race than Merle Ginsberg. People respond to who I am. People love me for my heart and who I am. I always try to be authentically myself and I think that really resonates with people," X Change says.
Even though the entertainer has spent plenty of time in front of the Drag Race cameras, she could be convinced to return to the werkroom one final time.
"The only way I'm going back on that stage is if [I could] compete to host the show. I'm not ever going back to Drag Race in any way, shape or form unless it's in a judging or hosting capacity."
Since fans won't see her on the mainstage any time soon, the queen is putting the pedal to the metal by going on national tours, hosting the award-winning podcast Sibling Rivalry with Bob the Drag Queen, and releasing new music.
Her next stop is at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, where she'll be performing music and some of her stand-up comedy.
"I've been calling myself a stand-up for the past year and a half. We talk about everything. It's fierce. Ever since I [sang] on Drag Race, my world opened up. In what world did I ever think I would be up in drag singing classical music and people would be screaming like I'm doing the HEATED verse from the Renaissance Tour? It's so crazy to me. People really live for it."
As Pride Month continues, Monét is grateful to bring some positivity and light to the LGBTQ+ community during these challenging times.
"We're always fighting just to exist. That can be very dark, especially during Pride season, where this is a time of year when you can feel unapologetically yourself. Whatever [I] can do to infuse some ferocity, I'm very happy to do it. If people get that joy and love from me, I'm happy that I can be of service in that way to our community."
Fans can get tickets to see Monét X Change tonight at 24 Oxford in Virgin Hotels Las Vegas here. To see the full hilarious interview, check out the video below.
