The mogul is busier than ever and reflecting on her move to the judges panel in a new interview with Out.

The North Pole has nothing on this Barbie.

Trixie Mattel is a true jack of all trades! The queen has dived into multiple successful business ventures since snatching the crown on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 3.

With her phone ringing nonstop for Pride Month, the star is making the most of every opportunity that's being thrown her way.

"It's a triggering subject. For Trixie Mattel, I'm Santa and this is Christmas. Me and my little toy shop and my elves have been working since January. I started making Pride content in April, so Pride starts in April and goes until the first week of July," Mattel tells Out.

Although the doll has a full plate on her hands, she wouldn't have it any other way. Besides, the queen is making that coin!

"I love it. This is the time of year where brands never call drags queens until this month [and] I get to gouge them with an inch of their life and feel great about it. I know on July 1st, that phone is not going to ring from some of these [brands]. Literally, it's like the electricity getting cut off in your house on July 1st."

One of the many gigs that Mattel currently has is judging an impressive roster of entertainers on the second season of Queen of the Universe on Paramount+. The season has already started off with plenty of mind-blowing performances.

"Moment to moment, compared to season one, our picks of who we thought might snatch it were changing all the time," Mattel says.

Mattel reunites with Michelle Visage and Vanessa Williams on the judges panel to ultimately crown the winner of the competition.

"Different styles, old school styles, queens that have been in the business for years, [and] newbies that are just figuring out what their talent is, so there's a lot of dynamics that we didn't have last season," Williams says.

"We had so much fun season one. Yes, that first cut hurt the deepest when a lot of those queens went home, but this is a competition and we like to cause shockwaves throughout the world," Visage adds. "Season two is no exception. It's such an incredible season.

Queen of the Universe is streaming now on Paramount+. To see the full interview with Trixie Mattel, Michelle Visage, and Vanessa Williams, check out the video below.
