Are we turning Honolulu into HalleLuLu? ABSOLUTELY!

Plus we’re performing at @scarlethnl ... Gia tonite & me 2morrow! Film premiere Sunday! 🥳
Being a Werqin Girl constantly on the go, y’all know I get HUNGRY. Sometimes I’m feeling very Original Whopper Shangie, but other times I want a different burger option. Well Halleloo for Burger King and their new Impossible Whopper. It’s made with a plant based patty, which means 0% beef, but still 100% Whopper!! But don’t just take my word, go try it ... Or watch me try it over on my IG story! IT’S THERE NOW!!! The Impossible Whopper tastes delicious and keeps me WERQIN! #ad @burgerking @impossible_foods
This is meant to make you think ... and hopefully ACT. Among other things, We must address this national issue of easy access to guns. Be informed. And VOTE.
Today we laid to rest my beautiful cousin Jackie McClelland. She was a hilarious, loving, upbeat and high-spirited lady that never met anyone she couldn’t make smile. I will miss her, but I’m happy to know she is at peace. Loss affects us all and reminds us to LIVE every day we have here on Earth. Love to u all ❤️ and I thank you in advance for keeping my family in your thoughts and prayers today.
felt cute ... won’t delete later 💋💋💋

A little BTS of our rehearsal for this past weekend’s Jackie’s Back event in LA. I’m always so thankful to my dancers (including these two @msilas23 & @idancenunez) who were so quick to show up and say “lets do this Shangie.” Thx Guys! Swipe to hear @joelapuss’s awesome remix to LOVE GODDESS by Miss Jenifer Lewis aka “Jackie”. Original song by the legendary @marc_shaiman for the movie “Jackie’s Back!” ❤️ it’s just for fun ... this is totally not that super serious of a number or performance so don’t get crazy lol 🤣

So I’m late on the whole Father’s Day post, but I really wanted to share this so here ya go. My parents split when I was super young so I never had a true relationship with my Dad, but my Grandpa was VERY MUCH a DAD to me my whole life. He was a rancher, he loved playing dominos, and in 2001 he passed away from cancer. Before he left this planet tho, he taught me about hard work and the importance of being a good person. Happy Father’s Day Grandaddy... I wish u were here to see all this but I’m sure you’re watching over. Xo ❤️
Happy Pride Y’all 🏳️🌈
I can’t believe it’s been 3 years since the Pulse Orlando attack. I’ll never forget waking up on my couch in Vegas and checking my phone to see on IG all these reports of a shooting at a gay club. I was like What?!? And I immediately text my friend Eddie who I knew in Orlando to say “hey. saw the news. crazy. hope you’re ok. text me back.” I never got a text back. The next day I found out that Eddie had been among the 49 innocent souls taken in that massacre. 😔 As we celebrate Pride in the LGBTQ community this season, let’s not forgot those we’ve senselessly lost due to hatred, intolerance, violence. Let’s not think that all is good in the world and it’s not important to stand tighter than ever. Let’s not think that it’s just a party or a parade ... GAY PRIDE is a statement. A statement from us as a community and all those who ally with us that hatred will not be tolerated, that we won’t hide, that we love who we are and aren’t going ANYWHERE. I love u guys. Be safe. And #NeverForget. ❤️🏳️🌈
I don’t really get into rankings. I think that just by being a Drag Queen we’re all pretty powerful. But THANK YOU @vulture for this cool write up in ur “Most Powerful Drag Queens in America.” I told y’all ... i Came to WERQ ❤️
Turned ALL THE WAY UP last night for a surprise performance at #LAPRIDE. What an awesome way to celebrate living out loud and PROUD. So much love to the super talented and fellow ‘bad ass woman’ @meghan_trainor for inviting me to be a part of her Amazing set, and to her choreographer miss @charmladonna for helping bring my vision to life. This came together in a matter of days thx to work of the dancers @walker2lit & @_ektorsilva, my music mixing genius @joelapuss, video editor supreme @dekellazimilev and all of #TeamShangela. Thx y’all! And to the fans out there screaming and getting ur lives, you’re the reason I twirl boo! I love U guys ❤️❤️❤️ Sending out good vibes around the World. I’ll be talking about this on my podcast “shangela” soon!
