She's in everything... and everywhere!

Ts Madison is one of the most recognizable trans women in the media today. Over the past few years, Maddie has elevated herself from just a funny Internet star to a full-blown celebrity with every corner of entertainment putting respect on her name.

Just in the past two years alone, fans haven't been able to escape Maddie. The BeyHive has been blasting her sample on Beyoncé's hit song "Cozy" since Renaissance dropped in 2022. Plus, the star has added quite a few impressive acting credits to her name including the 2022 film Bros, her hit ALLBLK show Hush, and the 2023 Netflix movie The Perfect Find.

"Watch out now! Anytime I'm on the scene, it's an iconic moment. I'm in everything and everywhere! It's one thing to talk about your evolution, but for you guys to see it... I'm starting to receive it. It touches my heart every time," Madison tells Out.

And Maddie is certainly not slowing down anytime soon, as the next couple of months have her booked and busy.

First up, the second season of Hush is currently streaming on ALLBLK and the star's acting skills are elevating right in front of her own eyes.

"It feels so good. I don't think that I'm the best actress, but I do know that this season that I improved," she says. "Monique, who I love to death, said 'Baby, if you believe it, they'll believe it.' I applied that this season and you can see it! I'm Mona Dee honey."

The actress holds a special place in her heart for her character Mona Dee, as Mona's gender identity is never questioned or discussed on the show.

"I haven't been cast as a trans woman. I haven't been cast as a cis woman. I've been cast to play a character! They wrote a role for me on this show and we haven't talked about me being a man or woman. That is what I have enjoyed the most."

As if her acting and music credits weren't enough, fans get to see her back on the judges panel for the upcoming season of RuPaul's Drag Race.

"You know what mother does, honey! Even though I'm not in the commercial, I think they saved the best for when the season opens up."

Keep up the good work Maddie! Hush is streaming now on ALLBLK and RuPaul's Drag Race returns January 5 on MTV.
