Divas Posing With Their Drag Queen Doppelgangers

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, drag queens are just a bunch of big ole sweethearts. Unless you cross them — then they’ll cold cock you soon as look at you. But when it comes to a queen and her diva, there’s nothing but love, good intentions and about 30 lbs of hair. Billboard compiled a gallery of divas with their drag queen doppelgangers.

To celebrate Pride Month, we've put together a gallery of music divas with their drag queen counterparts. At the 1999 MTV VMA's, there was a special tribute to the reigning queen of pop when about a dozen Madonna-dressed drag queens danced their way to the stage. Madonna's response, "All I have to say is that it takes a real man to fill my shoes."


A candy-coated Jessica Spirit dressed as "Teenage Dream" era Perry for a Katy Perry perfume launch event in Berlin. We bet Katy didn't see the look-a-like's peacock.


Lady Gaga films a drag show to tease her "ArtPop" video with a few ArtPop divas and the cast of "RuPaul's Drag Race" in Los Angeles. Shantay you stay!


The end all and be all of drag diva look-a-likes, "RuPaul's Drag Race"'s Chad Michaels as Cher with Cher.
