Who is Jeffree Star?
Jeffree Star is a 30-year old American singer-songwriter who has also recently branched into the worlds of makeup and fashion. Here’s how Wikipedia describes his unique appearance and product lineup:
“Star is also known for his fashion line, Beauty Forever, and his transgressive, gender-bending appearance and persona.”
Jeffree was born in Los Angeles County, California and discovered makeup at age 13. He claims at an early age, he would use fake IDs to get into Los Angeles clubs and talk to celebrities, after which the celebrities would hire Jeffree “for makeup work at their homes” or “hiring him as a model”.
Jeffree is also known for his strong social media presence. He first gained recognition on MySpace, where his music received 25 million plays and was frequently among the top 10 most-played songs on the site. By November of 2006, he was MySpace’s most-connected profile.
Jeffree is also known for his rocky friendship with tattoo artist Kat Von D. In July 2016, the pair ended their friendship after Kat claims Jeffree engaged in “inappropriate behavior” like drug use, racism, and bullying. Kat also claimed that Jeffree Star Cosmetics products are not 100% cruelty-free and vegan-friendly – something that the makeup company proudly advertises. You can read an in-depth look at these allegations on Bustle.com here.
Today, Jeffree has over 3.4 million Instagram followers, 2.7 million YouTube subscribers, and 762,00 Twitter followers.
