Hip Online May 4, 2009 0

[/caption]Jeffree Star is set to unleash his debut album, “Beauty Killers”, late this summer. The first single, “Prisoner,” debuted on MySpace on Friday and received almost 500,000 plays over the weekend. “Prisoner” now available on iTunes here. Jeffree Star is confirmed for the first half of this summer’s Vans Warped Tour and will follow that up with a national headlining tour in support of Beauty Killer.

Jeffree Star is currently putting the finishing touches on “Beauty Killer” in Los Angeles. He’s working with a number of different producers including Lester Mendez (Shakira, Jessica Simpson, Nelly Furtado), Luke Walker (Alkaline Trio, Elliott Yamin) and 3OH!3′s Nathaniel Motte. Confirmed guest vocalists include Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba, Nicki Minaj (Lil’ Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment) and Danger Radio.

What started as an obsession with music has now become Jeffree Star’s reality. Three years ago, Jeffree was quickly gaining recognition for his make up artistry and modeling. People became obsessed with him and an online phenomenon was born. Jeffree always likes experimenting. He would write down some crazy verses, have a friend make a beat and toss rough songs up on MySpace to get a reaction. And that was how it started. Jeffree has always had a passion for music. He’s dreamed of being a performer. He’s come a very long way in the last three years and is now ready for the world to hear what he’s been working on. “Beauty Killer” will be out this summer on Jeffree’s own label, Popsicle Records through Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group.

“I can’t wait for you all to hear “Beauty Killer” – I’m really proud of it. I think even people who “HATE JEFFREE STAR!!” will secretly listen to enjoy “Prisoner” and wish they didn’t like a Jstar track. Is the industry ready to take me seriously? We will have to wait and see! “Prisoner” is just the beginning! All the love and all the hate has motivated me so much and I can’t wait to start playing all these new songs on tour over the summer.” – Jeffree Star
