Chad Michaels 'Transforms' James St. James Into Cher, Talks Life Before 'Drag Race' (VIDEO)

In the latest installment of James St. James' "Transformations" series, reigning "RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars" champion Chad Michaels turns St. James into his drag specialty: Cher.

With the art of creating Cher's face down to a science (including painting the inside of St. James' nostrils) the charismatic Chad Michaels opens up about a number of things from his past, including regretting his decision to get injectables in the 1990s and his old drag name from decades ago (you'll never believe it).

The reigning all-star queen also discusses performing for Cher just last weekend! Be sure to check out his catchy new single and video "Tragic Girl" and watch St. James' transformation above!
