KJ Apa wants to join RuPaul's Drag Race as his 'feminine' alter-ego Fifi

Step aside: OkaaaaayJ Apa is coming through.

Riverdale actor KJ Apa recently opened up about his long-brewing affection for the queens of RuPaul's Drag Race, telling NME in a new interview that his deep-seated connection with his TikTok-famous "feminine side" — whom he refers to as "Fifi" in short video clips posted to his profile on the social media site — has his sights set firmly on joining VH1's Emmy-winning drag queen competition series in the future. "I love watching RuPaul's Drag Race and I've told my agents I want to be on that show," Apa told the publication. "But at the same time, RuPaul's Drag Race and the characters on that show, they're the real deal, they're the most authentic. I don't think I'd be allowed on that show because I'm not the real deal. But why did I share Fifi with the world? Because it's not something that I feel like I need to hide. I am proud of Fifi. I really enjoy that [side of myself]."

"No one's asked me about Fifi before, but she's been living inside of me for a long time," he continued of the persona. "I have quite literally known and messed with this character since I was eight, nine, 10 years old. She allows me to express the feminine side of myself through moving and my physicality. My sisters would dress me up in drag as a kid — I'd put on lipstick and wear wigs and stuff – and I used to love exploring that part [of myself]. It was epic."

Girls with that name don't do too well.

Artists have long been a bit mentally ill. This might be a form of schizophrenia.

Is he trying to come out?

His career is over the minute Riverdale is cancelled. The ugly tattoos. And his face is really not attractive. Who cares if he comes out?

by Anonymousreply 10October 25, 2021 3:21 AM

He's going to turn into Ken Wahl.

If Dawson ('s Creek) can still work, I don't see why KJ can't.

It wouldn't surprise me if he has a similar trajectory to Charlie Hunnam. Neither are especially strong actors but they have an earthy quality that suits blue collar characters.

Archies looks have gradually gone downhill...Look at his first Riverdale Interview...Cute. Adorable. He did NOT age well..That face got fugly fast and littering up his body with the trashy tattoos did nothing to help his career.. VIDEO (2:55)....

r5 No, he's just queerbaiting.

I don't think talking about an alter ego is necessarily queerbaiting.

His physique is goals

He's a daddy now. He is trying to maintain interest in his brand or brands. He's also a singer and musician doing music for the devout Christian crowd. He has to take care of a baby and the baby's momma now.

I need his workout regimen

He is a right wing closet case. He is one of those self loathers....

I love him

He's absolutely not. He's challenged homophobic comments left on his Insta. His sister is an out lesbian.

The only thing in KJ Apas future is Right Wing Christian movies (which he loves and never revolve around gays)....And Hallmark Movie channels....He is the Lindsay Graham of the CW...He also wears a wig because he has a balding crown.

A Right Wing Christian who delights in transgressive gender expression?

Bless your heart, r24

No, bless your heart if you think this pair are after the Right Wing Christian collective.
