Drag Name Origin

The name "Jade" originated from the fictional character of the same name from the video game franchise Mortal Kombat, where the former had "the best body and tits" which Josh Green had wanted to resemble. Meanwhile, the name "Jolie" originated from the American actress, filmmaker and humanitarian Angelina Jolie, whom she described as "the queen of all queens."
