In response to a Drag Race fan, Ada clarified exactly why people asking her about a potential appearance on the show bothers her. “Yeah, like… I would NEVER say I’m ‘too good’ for it, it’s just not what I do as an artist,” she wrote. “It’s just so weird that grown men will come telling me that I’m ‘arrogant’ or ‘acting like a diva’ just for saying that I won’t compete on their favorite reality show.” Another fan of Ada’s suggested that she appear as a guest judge, which the star said “would be a dream.” She added: “I would absolutely love to be a mentor for a singing challenge!” When another person asked Ada about doing “an all drag live musical,” the performer responded: “I meannnn… I’ve never even seen a musical other than like High School Musical or Hairspray because they were on TV, but let’s do it!
