The 59-year-old star previously attributed his success to being adaptable to change.
He said: "In this life, if you can stay flexible, you have a really good chance of navigating a really rich experience for yourself on this planet."
And the drag star claimed identity is an "illusion" and he's always been drawn to what he was as "irreverent".
He said: "It's all a lie -- this world is a lie. So don't base your value on the lie.
"I've always been attracted to things that were irreverent, [like] Monty Python, I thought, 'Oh, there's my tribe!'
"Because even as a kid, I knew that I had a sense that none of this was real, that it was all an illusion and that it would be a mistake to base my value on the lie: Boys, go here. Girls go there. Blacks over here, whites over here ... all these superficial rules we come up with are just BS!"
And he explained how he turned to drag as a form of "social commentary" and has never set out to "pass" as a woman.
He said: "We did drag as a social commentary. It was a reaction to the Reagan '80s, and it wasn't trying to look real or pass [as a woman]. It was a rebellion against the status quo."
