Reba McEntire has her fair share of drag queens dressing up like her across the country. And while Reba embraces it now, there was a time she was ticked about it….but probably not for the reason you think….
Reba tells The Advocate, “One night in the early ’90s, shortly after [my single] ‘Fancy’ came out, I had a gentleman at one of our fan club get-togethers we’d have, and he showed up in full regalia — total drag — and it really ticked me off because his hair and makeup looked better than mine!”
That is a huge compliment because Reba always looks like a 10 with hair and make up! Definitely worth a pat on the back for sure. Reba also mentioned she still sees some at her shows from time to time and it makes her smile.
“Imitation is a huge form of flattery,” she says.
