Jeffree Star, the self-made phenomenon with a flare for the dramatic and an on (and off)-line army of supporters as dedicated as they are diverse makes his musical debut today by way of the EP Cupcakes Taste Like Violence which is available today at all major physical and digital retailers. Jeffree has teamed with Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group (ILG) to form his own label, Popsicle Records. He's currently recording his full length record, Beauty Killer, set for release this summer and featuring a variety of guest appearances.
The first single from Cupcakes is "Lollipop Luxury" and a remix is available on Jeffree's MySpace page (not available on the EP) featuring up-and-coming hip hop star Nicki Minaj. Minaj is the first signing to Lil' Wayne's label Young Money Entertainment. www.myspace.com/jeffreestar
Jeffree’s love for the extreme started from a young age attending the Hollywood club scene fully clad in nine-inch heels, mini-dresses, show-stopping makeup and his trademark stunning pink hair. He quickly was in high-demand as a personal makeup artist to stars such as Kelly Osbourne, Nicole Richie, and Paris Hilton. Soon, Jeffree's profile began to rise in LA as he graced the covers of Frontiers and LA Weekly in addition to being the face of jewelry designer Tarina Tarantino’s Tokyo Hardcore campaign alongside his close friend, AFI’s Davey Havok. Things started moving quickly as his MySpace page became and remains one of the site's most trafficked pages.
Jeffree launched his own clothing line in Hot Topic, expanded his web presence as the face of sites like Buzznet and Stickam, and even became a beloved guest on America’s Next Top Model and regular on L.A. Ink. He has appeared in music videos for Good Charlotte, Peaches and Godhead as well. Jeffree's first foray into recorded music can be found on his self-released EP Plastic Surgery Slumber Party which is available on iTunes.
Dubbed “Queen of the Internet,” Jeffree is a cultural icon and perhaps the most flamboyant, yet appealing star to emerge in recent memory. Jeffree Star is not just a trend, he’s an obsession for all.
