When I turned 21, I was like, “Let’s try this little drag thing.” I started playing in makeup and started performing as Miss Ada so I could move my career forward. In the music industry, we always have some type of gimmick or some type of schtick to really stand out. I guess she was kind of born out of that necessity. I became Ada and saw that I could do a lot more things. People see me in a different way when I’m onstage so I took it and ran with it.
