abstract
This paper is an exploration of Jeffree Star. Jeffree Star is homosexual, a cross-dresser and thereby transcends traditional gender norms. Jeffree Star is also controversial in other ways, including the use of obscenity, perverse and disturbing imagery, and provocative opinions. All of these trends, emphasized on his various Internet artifices, pique the interest of gender and women’s studies. Through researching a variety of textual support and observing various images and internet representations of Jeffree Star, there are several important themes that reoccur. These themes include: trans-identity; self-obsession and self-loathing; artificiality; and feminism. Important conclusions of this research will include Jeffree Star’s direct and indirect impacts on feminism and queer culture. The final draft of this paper will be formatted as a MySpace page, a tribute to the medium and contemporary multimedia by which Jeffree Star has become self-proclaimed, “internet royalty.”
