“My start in LA wasn’t easy at all,” he said Turn. “I used to be homeless. I lived in the back seat of my car for over eight months. It’s like I stopped caring what other people think.”

He quickly began booking various gigs, including an appearance in Britney Spears’ music video for Make Me, and actually won Celebrity Ninja Warrior back home in Israel.

However, he admits that RuPaul’s Drag Race is filming his favorite reality show.

He even created a song using a sample of Aura Mayori’s impression of Bretman Rock from Snatch Game, which is his most popular song to date thanks to Drag Race fans.

“I want to say a big thank you to all the RuPaul drag racers and the entire LGBTQ community to thank them for the love and to tell them to keep being brave, keep being themselves and stay as beautiful as as they are,” he said.

Who knows. Asaf may have a future collaboration with RuPaul or Britney herself.
