Jeffree Star is an American makeup artist, entrepreneur, singer-songwriter, DJ, beauty YouTuber, model, and Internet celebrity. He is the founder and owner of Jeffree Star Cosmetics. Further, he was born as Jeffrey Lynn Steininger Jr on November 15, 1985.
He frequently used MySpace to promote his music career. Since 2009, Star released his first and only studio album, Beauty Killer, which included songs such as “Lollipop Luxury” featuring Nicki Minaj. He embarked on several world tours to promote his music. In 2010, he signed to Konvict Muzik—whose founder Akon described Star as “the next Lady Gaga”. However, Star abruptly left the music industry in 2013 due to legal issues Akon was facing between 2007 and 2010.
Star was born in Orange County, California. Similarly, his father, Jeffrey L. Steininger, committed suicide when Star was six years old. And he was subsequently raised solely by his mother, Marra Shubyann Lindstrom Steininger. As a child, Star alleges he began regularly experimenting with his mother’s makeup and convinced her to let him wear it to school when he was in junior high. Likewise, he moved to Los Angeles following his graduation from high school, supporting himself with various makeup, modeling and music jobs. Further, he later recalled spending his time on weekends “using a fake ID to attend Hollywood clubs. Similarly, he was dressed in mini dresses and nine-inch high heels, where celebrities would contract Star for makeup work at their homes.”
Star used popular social networking website MySpace to further both his music as well as fashion design career. Further, he also used MySpace for blogging about his life, while making social commentary on “self-image and confidence,” fame, beauty, and life. Star had built up a fan base on several websites but convinced many to join him on MySpace, giving his profile a large number of followers from the beginning. His MySpace photoshoots would frequently get over 50,000 comments when posted. Similarly, Star also gained fame as one of the most popular independent artists, with the daily rankings placing him in the top tier on MySpace.
Star’s music career as an electronica and pop vocalist began when he befriended Peaches’ drummer Samantha Maloney, who encouraged him to make music. Moreover, during the summer of 2007, Star was advertised as a part of the True Colors Tour 2007, which traveled through 15 cities in the United States and Canada. The tour, sponsored by the LGBT Logo channel, began on June 8, 2007, to coincide with Pride month.
