Jeffree Star at the Orpheum Club
Jeffree Star got up close and personal with some fans at the small Orpheum club in Tampa last night (July 30). A model/makeup artist/celebrity from Los Angeles, he has too many friends on MySpace and is turning his notoriety into a music career. Jeffree’s debut album, Beauty Killer, drops September 22nd on his own Popsicle Records via Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group. "Prisoner," the lead single, is now streaming on Jeffree's MySpace page: www.myspace.com/jeffreestar.
According to a Jeffree quote from one of his publicists "Beauty Killer is my way of saying ‘fuck you’ to what everyone’s idea of what beauty stands for.“ In the immortal words of Bull on Night Court "Ohhhkay." The set featured covers of Black Eyed Peas "Boom Boom Pow" and "Somebody's Watching Me" (yep the song that Michael Jackson sang back up on, now on a Geico ad campaign, but with a more techno edge) as well as songs from Beauty Killer.
