On Episode 214 of What’s the Tee?, her podcast with Ru Paul, Visage says that as an adult, she has had sex with both men and women. “I’ve been with women; I’ve had sex with women,” she says. “All of it. All of it. Hands, items…not food, no. I don’t do the food thing. … But I realized I never wanted to have a relationship…it was just sexual for me, ’cause women know what women want—so I understand it—but…or there’d be a man involved, but it was never…I never had a relationship, um, never been offered one, to be honest … so I’ve never been tempted to be solely that, but I think women are very sexy and sensual and beautiful, so I can still look at a woman and say, ‘She’s hot.'”


Two years later Visage was contacted by RuPaul again and invited to appear on season three of the show. After her boss once again said she was not able to appear, she was persuaded by her friend Leah Remini to contact CBS officials who allowed her to join the show as a judge. So on January 24, 2011, Visage debuted as a permanent judge, along with Santino Rice and Billy B, on season three of RuPaul’s Drag Race, replacing Merle Ginsberg. She has also appeared on all four seasons of the spin-off show, RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars, and RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, which began airing on BBC Three in 2019.


In 2005, Visage returned to New York City, where she served as co-host of The Morning Mix on WNEW-FM until December 2006. She also hosted on Sirius Satellite Radio’s The Beat 66 from 2003 to 2006 On March 12, 2007, she became a co-host of the morning show on SUNNY 104.3 in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Visage has worked with RuPaul on a variety of television shows throughout her career. In 1996, she became the co-host of RuPaul’s VH1 talk show The RuPaul Show. She also co-hosted WKTU’s morning show with RuPaul from 1996 to 2002. And when Ru began casting judges for season one of RuPaul’s Drag Race he invited Visage to become a permanent member of the show. At the time she was on a five-year contract with a CBS radio station in West Palm Beach and after asking her boss if she could join the show he said no, which Visage put down to the show’s links with the LGBT community.


Originally gaining recognition as a member of the band Seduction, she earned five singles with the group that charted on the Billboard Hot 100 before reaching the top of the dance charts in 1993 as lead vocalist in The S.O.U.L. S.Y.S.T.E.M.. She co-hosted The RuPaul Show from 1996 to 1998, alongside frequent collaborator RuPaul. After working as a radio DJ across the country from 1996 to 2011, she returned to television in 2011 on the American reality competition series RuPaul’s Drag Race, where she has served as a permanent judge since the show’s third season. She has also served as a judge on each season of its spin-off series, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars and RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.


Visage auditioned and won a place for Seduction, an R&B and dance vocal trio assembled by Robert Clivilles and David Cole that signed with A&M Records in 1990. The group had several hits, the most famous being “Two to Make It Right”. After the group’s breakup, Visage collaborated with the freestyle dance act TKA as a guest vocalist on the song “Crash (Have Some Fun)”. Visage provided lead vocals and was the recording artist of another dance act assembled by Clivilles and Cole, The S.O.U.L. S.Y.S.T.E.M. The song “It’s Gonna Be a Lovely Day”, which was a cover version of the Bill Withers song “Lovely Day”, was included on the soundtrack to The Bodyguard. “It’s Gonna Be a Lovely Day” became a No. 1 dance single and peaked at No. 34 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 1993.


In New York she was active in the club scene and her mother, Arlene, even gave her a fake ID so she could make connections to help further her career. Visage became prominent in the New York ball scene and learned voguing from various people including Willi Ninja. She also became involved with Cesar Valentino and the pair appeared voguing together on the television show The Latin Connection in 1988, which they said was the first time voguing had appeared on national TV.


Visage grew up in New Jersey, was adopted and was aware of this from an early age. She attended an arts high school in South Plainfield, New Jersey, graduating in 1986. She then moved to New York and attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Manhattan for two years. When Visage was 16 she won a Madonna look-alike competition. Growing up, Visage looked up to Madonna, Belinda Carlisle, Pat Benatar, Stevie Nicks, Cyndi Lauper and Dale Bozzio. Visage’s mother died when she was 30. Shortly after finishing her studies she stayed in New York City to pursue a career as an actress.


Michelle adopted her surname, Visage, after gaining the nickname “cara” (‘face’ in Spanish) from the people she spent time with in the New York ball scene. However, because people pronounced it incorrectly she decided to change it to “visage” (‘face’ in French), a name she has stuck with. Visage also met her future friend and co-star RuPaul for the first time in the late 1980s, when she attended club nights and parties hosted by Susanne Bartsch. In 1989, Visage performed at “The Love Ball”, which was organised by Bartsch as a benefit for the Design Industries Foundation For AIDS. It is said that The Love Ball is where Madonna first witnessed voguing, the inspiration for her song “Vogue”. However, participating in New York night life was not Visage’s sole occupation and during the day she worked as a receptionist at the shop Casablanca and Fundamental Things in the New York garment district.
