Drag Name Origin

After reading The Secret, which talks about the law of attraction, they wanted to set their intentions for greatness and attract success. Wanting a name that was both feminine and powerful, they came up with Fame Fatale (a play on the phrase "Femme Fatale). Shortly after Britney Spears used the same phrase for the title of her 2011 album, Miss Fame decided to change their name.[citation needed]

Farewell Message

"Continue to inspire. You are incredible! I love you. FAME."
