Noted gender-bending Internet celebrity (and, oddly enough, Orange County native) Jeffree Star has more than a million MySpace friends and nearly 80,000 Twitter followers. And, not surprisingly, an album coming out, scheduled for September 22, called Beauty Killer.
Before that happens, though (well, the day before), Star will be celebrating the release of said album at storied all-ages venue Chain Reaction in Anaheim. Should be interesting, no? It's $15 at the door, but free entry with the purchase of the record at the box office, so...yeah.
Being one of those archetypal "famous for being famous" types, the obvious question would be, "is this music actually any good?" Given the more than 8 million plays lead single "Prisoner" has on MySpace, it probably doesn't much matter, but it's pretty standard stuff, not unlikely a lot of the industrial-ish bands that got big in the mid-'90s (Stabbing Westward, Orgy, etc.). Possibly not as hilariously bad as you might hope for.
