She said: "I was paid to do an event last year and some drag queens were there.
"I am a nice person despite what anyone thinks.
"And I am going to be nice if someone comes up to me wanting to have a picture taken and that's all it was."
Last week, India angered fans with her comments about drag queens likening them to the racist Black And White Minstrel Show.

The transgender journalist, 51, infuriated viewers after she became upset at Andrew Brady dressing in drag and told him it was like the racist BBC show.
Keen to get to the bottom of India's views, Rylan said: "But you do have some kind of drag phobia?"
India said: "I do yes. When I get my phone back I'm going to look it up and check what it's called.
"It's just something that I've always had in me."
