Alana Thompson, best known as "Honey Boo Boo Child," gets more popular by the day. The famous drag queen RuPaul would love to do a duet with "Honey Boo Boo Child," he told E! News while at the MTV VMAs.  

The pint-sized child pageant star has a show named after her that centers around her and her self-proclaimed redneck family.

Now RuPaul has announced that he wants the young beauty queen to sing on his album.

"I'm doing a duet record and I'm here to ask Honey Boo Boo Child to be my duet partner!" RuPaul told E! News last week's MTV VMAs in Los Angeles. 

"She is real. She is lovely. She's funny. She doesn't take herself seriously. The whole family doesn't take themselves seriously. It's really just good fun. I love anybody who dances to the beat of a different drummer." 

RuPaul explained to E! News that the 7-year-old unsuspecting star understands drag. "She is the queen. She understands what drag is. That's what pageants are. That's why pageants are so lovely."

RuPaul recently tweeted, "She is my reason 4 living RT @ANTmusik: #HoneyBooBoo duet coming soon?"

Though Alana has yet to dabble in professional singing, RuPaul is no stranger to the music business.

The "RuPaul's Drag Race" host first started out in the music business when he released his first album "Supermodel of the World" in 1993 with the breakout hit "Supermodel (You Better Work)."

He also sang with Elton John on his 1993 "Duets" album, singing the song "Don't Go Breaking My Heart." Elton's original version was recorded with Kiki Dee.

Alana started out on "Toddlers & Tiaras" and now has her own hit show.

RuPaul is hoping for the best with the girl, tweeting, "I'm living 4 the day 'Honey Boo Boo' gets that Kardashian sized checking account."
