Publisher's Summary

Michelle Visage is not your average diva. Powerful, positive, and polished, this diva's not only glamorous, she's a savvy businesswoman with serious credentials who works her tail off. From her days vogueing in the downtown Manhattan clubs in the '90s to her successful career in radio and her ultimate cult status as a judge on RuPaul's Drag Race, Michelle has achieved her dreams and then some!

In The Diva Rules, Visage shares her rules and advice for living life to the fullest and finding success no matter the hand you're dealt. With her no-nonsense style and super sassy voice, Michelle tells listeners to "Keep Your Shit Together", "Give Good Face", and "Be Thankful You're a Misfit" in addition to 22 other invaluable life lessons on finding your power and sparkling your way to the top.

    Story
    ""Grow Up & Screw Up""
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Diva Rules to be better than the print version?

    yes, as the narrator gives you the uplifting message without leaving your comfort zone.Try the new 1.25x speed for a change of pace. You will be surprised.


    What did you like best about this story?

    If you love an uplifting message, then this is IT. If you always wanted out of your comfort zone, but always think "that is not me", then this message ought to do it. Remember, it is still about the power of you.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    "People want to be near YOU, because they feel better about themselves"


    Any additional comments?

    Many thanks Audible for this daily deal. Please keep them coming!

    "A Whole Lot of Nothing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I recently heard Michelle Visage on a radio interview and was like 'This woman is awesome!'. And she is. But this book wasn't. I think in radio format, drag race, and interviews Michelle's true beauty and talent shines best. This book was filled with hackneyed, feel-good phrases, blah blahs, etc. - rendering it a bit dull. Her narration was wonderful and VERY Michelle.

    "I've learned a lot about acceptance & being kind ♡"

    I've learned a lot about acceptance & being kind... not like "generally I'm a kind person"... but in consciously making the decision every day to be truthful but from a kind/loving place. Work hard for everything you have, the people that succeed, do so because they will do WHATEVER IT TAKES to have the life they want. Thank you ♡♡♡

    "Makes me love Michelle Visage even more!"
    Would you listen to The Diva Rules again? Why?

    Yes, A great way to remind yourself to never give up! Her story of the ups and downs of life are really inspiring. Partner that with her message, which is basically,"Be a good person, and handle your $hit" and it just leaves you feeling good!

    "Touching entertainment!"

    Girl this book not only made me laugh out loud in the street but also kept me thinking and questioning those rules and... better yet! I actually took some action and put in practice some of the tips. Michelle's reading is without doubt one of my favorites audiobook I've heard so far, beyond charismatic and down to earth, kudos!

    "Inspiring, Engaging Fluff"

    I love Michelle Visage even more after listening to this audiobook. It won't change your life or talk you out of a depression, but it will give you an inspiring kick in the pants and a few chuckles. It's an autobiography, with just the juicy bits and some genuinely good advice.

    "So motivational!"

    "If I can make life better for just one diva, I'll be living!"

    I found this book very motivational, positive, and powerful. The performance is entertaining and it sounds more like she just chatting with me. I've have the pleasure to meet Michelle Visage in the real world and she is just as lovely and positive. I'll never forget what she told me, "You have to do what you love"

    "LOVED THIS BOOK....."
    Would you listen to The Diva Rules again? Why?

    Oh god yes I would listen to this again, and again...Flicking through Netflix desperately trying to find something to watch and landing on RuPauls drag race, becoming a fan and then an addict. I saw Michelle Visage and thought to myself that woman scares the bejesus out of me. After listening to her book, if I met her in real life, I would just want to give her a "Hey guuurrrl" and hug her.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Her openness and her vulnerability, especially when discussing her anxiety moments.


    Any additional comments?

    Any additional comments.......errrrrmmm....thank you for introducing me to Drag, I'm a married hetro 48 year old woman from the UK, a Secretary. And now a Diva Secretary...p.s just bought a ticket to see Bianca Del Rio on my own....cannot wait. Buy the book you will love it... xxx Love from Linda R. :)

    A good listen with a mixture of old school stories and inspirational advice. Nothing life changing but very funny in parts and delivered with such verve that you can't help but smile. Would recommend to younger LGBT people as a lot of the advice may be useful.
