It was never released, and Star abruptly left the music industry in 2013 for unknown reasons.
Jeffree Star Cosmetics, his ecommerce makeup brand, was launched in 2014. Star stated in Shane Dawson's five-part docuseries that the end of his music career had left him essentially bankrupt, and that he had used his remaining savings to launch his makeup line.

If Star falls within this range, Net Worth Spot calculates that he earns $13.422,000 a year, or $201.322,000 monthly. However, $201.32 thousand annually may be a modest estimate.
