Jade Jolie is the stage name of Joshua Green, an American drag queen and Taylor Swift impersonator
known for competing in the fifth season of RuPaul's Drag Race and the fourth season of The Boulet Brothers' Dragula.

Jolie is featured in Swift’s “You Need to Calm Down” music video and performed alongside Taylor Swift
during the opening act of the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards and received two awards with Swift, including Video of the Year. After Swift won the Video of the Year Award, presenter John Travolta confused Jolie for Swift herself and attempted to hand her the award.

Green was born on November 2, 1986 and raised in Ft. Myers, Florida. He started doing drag at the University Club in Gainesville, Florida. His drag mom is Dana Douglas and her drag father is Bob Taylor. The name Jade Jolie is a combination of the Mortal Kombat character Jade and Angelina Jolie. He originally auditioned for season five of Drag Race, where he reached the top eight.

Jolie was announced as one of fourteen contestants for the fifth season of RuPaul's Drag Race in 2013. She was placed in the bottom three in the first episode but was spared over Serena ChaCha and Penny Tration. She played Taylor Swift for the annual Snatch Game. She was later eliminated in the sixth episode after losing a lip sync to The Pointer Sisters "So Excited" against Coco Montrese. She appeared as a guest in the show’s season eight grand finale.


After Drag Race, Jolie was in the music video for Pandora Boxx's "Knew You Seemed Shady!" on July 23, 2013. In 2017, Jolie was part of Phi Phi O'Hara's drag benefit show to raise funds for the victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, with other Drag Race alumni. She was also in the music video for Alaska's "Snaked" on December 24, 2018, playing Taylor Swift. She portrayed Swift again in the music video for Swift's "You Need to Calm Down" on June 17, 2019.

In September 2021, Jolie was announced as part of the cast of the fourth season of The Boulet Brothers'
Dragula, becoming the first Drag Race alum to compete on the show, and placed sixth.
