The Scottish Scandal, Morgan McMichaels is not new to The Drag Scene.

But will Miss McMichaels live up to the hype on National Television? She’s got the experience, but is that enough for RuPaul’s Drag Race?
Join RuPaul and Morgan, on Logo’s second season of "RuPaul’s Drag Race," the ultimate drag queen competition. Each week, through the trials and tribulations of glam, glitter and show-stopping performances, one drag queen is eliminated until finding America’s next drag superstar.
Let’s get to know one of our own favorite performers on a personal level. Let me reintroduce you to Morgan McMichaels.
Joshua Miller :: Where did your drag name Morgan McMichaels come from?
Morgan came from Morgan le Fay, the queen of the fairies. McMichaels came from my Drag Mother the legendary Chad Michaels and Drag Father Adam Magee.
JM :: Who/ What inspired you to do Drag?
Jenna Jameson... lol shes gorgeous! I was also inspired by Joan Jett, I loved the performance aspect of entertaining. I have the beauty and the body to pull off a gorgeous woman, so why not? lol
JM :: Why did you audition for RuPaul’s Drag Race?
I wanted to take my performance art to the next level and it was a natural progression of my career. I wanted to showcase my talent to America and thanks to Logo and RuPaul I was given the opportunity of a lifetime. So I jumped on it and here I am!
JM :: What do you think it takes to become Americas Next Top Drag Superstar?
It takes a combination of things, personality, a sense of humor, sex appeal, an eye for style and most importantly the willingness to do what it takes to win.
JM :: What is your favorite song to perform? Why?
"So What" By Pink. It embodies what I think Morgan McMichaels is all about. It’s sexy, energetic and embodies the essence of Rock & Roll. It really gets the crowd going.
JM :: What is the hardest thing about being a Drag Queen?
Isn’t it obvious? "Tucking" is hardest part of Drag. If you don’t know what "tucking" means... google it!
JM :: What is the best part about being a Drag Queen?
The best part is having a platform to stand on. I can now use my voice as an outlet voice my opinions on things such as Marriage Equality and Prop 8! NOH8!
JM :: What would you be doing if you weren’t doing Drag?
I would probably be finished with school and working in the medical field. Before I moved to Los Angeles from Scotland I was in school studying to be an Immunologist.
