On Monday, rocker Adam Lambert joined Raja as he celebrated being crowned season 3 winner of all-gay cabler Logo's RuPaul's Drag Race.

Raja, 36, was crowned America's next drag superstar after beating out two remaining finalists: Alexis Mateo, 30, of St. Petersburgh, Florida and Manila Luzon, 25, of New York City, New York.

“I wear drag because I love fashion,” Raja told PEOPLE.com on Monday night. “I love performing. I love being in front of a crowd of people but above and beyond everything it's because I love clothing and I love wearing clothing.”

“There's a part of me that's always wanted to be a role model or a teacher or a mentor,” Raja added. “I get emails from kids who are 13 years old and they say, 'I've started a gay student alliance in my junior high and I've opened a dialogue with my parents and I admire you.' There are times when I'm just sitting at home and I'm reading these emails and tears will come out of my eyes. I remember being that kid.”

“Pose! So proud of you,” Lambert messaged to his more than 1 million Twitter followers along with a link to a photo of Raja.

America's newest drag diva is also Lambert's make-up artist. At the start of the season, Lambert predicted Raja would be the queen to beat.

“You are the top drag queen!” he told Raja. “Those bitches better watch out.”
