The queen diva Big Freedia is slaying the game in all aspects of entertainment. From hit songs to notable collaborations (Beyoncé, Kesha, and RuPaul just to name a few), the star is now expanding her empire.
Fans get to watch Freedia dabble into multiple other businesses such as beauty, recreational drugs, hospitality, and launching a record label all on her new docuseries Big Freedia Means Business.
"We are coming back with a new show chronicling my life and my business ventures," Freedia tells Out. "Fans get to see me opening the first Black-owned hotel here in New Orleans. They also will get to see my eyewear line, my makeup line, my press on nails, my record label... I'm just taking over the business world!"
Not only is Freedia showing off her business ventures on TV, but the star is gearing up for the release of her highly-anticipated new album Central City. This will be her first LP in nine years.
"New music, new collaborations. I have a lot of great people on the album. New sounds, taking it back a little bit to the roots here in New Orleans, where I grew up. I'm also elevating the bounce sound to new heights and new ventures [by] going into new samples and stuff like that, so it's going to be a great album."
The star is truly enjoying this moment as a mainstream entertainer. In the docuseries, Freedia opens up on her grind and drive for success in her 20+ year career in the industry.
"Not a day goes by that it doesn't feel surreal. I'm finally getting to see the proof my labor for all of the hard work that I've put in for the last two decades. It feels very good to know that there's people that look up to me and [there's] people I can inspire to go out and be their true authentic selves. That's what it's about for me, just making the world a better place."
With such a packed schedule on her plate, Freedia is still making time to see her fans by going out on tour.
"I will be out on tour throughout Pride Month so people will get to see me shaking my ass all around the world and bringing good vibes to stages and cities near you. It is very important for me to put it out there. It is who I am and what I represent, to keep on spreading love and bringing people together through the power of ass. That's what I do!"
Music lovers are also hoping to see Beyoncé this summer on her Renaissance World Tour. With both artists traveling the world this year, could a Queen Diva and Queen Bee performance be in the works?
"I hope so! I hope I'll be able to release my wiggle, baby. Fingers crossed!"
