As she makes her debut Friday night on Vh1, our Mike Duffy had the chance to get some of the details from DeJa Skye.
Question: Where did the name DeJa Skye come from?
Answer: The first half came from the 2006 Beyoncé song "DeJa Vu."
"She's an icon — I like to think I am too," DeJa Skye said. "When I was a little kid, there was a show on the PBS called 'The Puzzle Place' and there was a Native American puppet named Skye, S-K-Y-E. I guess I had a crush on a puppet, I don't know. I'm weird."
She also said she feels great to represent Northern California since she said there isn't enough queens on the show from her side of the state.
"I can say definitely I started drag because of the show," she said. "So for me to get on 10 years later, it's a full-circle moment. I have a whole community, a whole city and practically a valley having my back. So that's amazing."
Season 14 of RuPaul's Drag Race premieres Friday at 8 p.m. on Vh1.
