AN INTERVIEW WITH JIMMY STAR
ARTIST’S HOUSE: Who is Jimmy Star?
JIMMY STAR: I am a celebrity, clothing designer, television/radio host, actor, best selling author, publicist and social media guru.
ARTIST’S HOUSE: Everybody knows about your show, “The Jimmy Star Show with Ron Russell”. Could you tell us more about the show?
JIMMY STAR: The Jimmy Star Show with Ron Russell is an entertainment conversation webshow (tv and radio) that interviews extremely cool celebrities in the worlds of music, film, television and authors primarily. We are currently the #1Webshow in the world, with 4.5 million weekly viewers/listeners and the only
syndicated show in the world hosted by a GAY married couple.
ARTIST’S HOUSE: How are people appearing on your show chosen?
JIMMY STAR: Guests on the show are selected by me based on their careers and accomplishments. If they are 80’s stars I tend to want to interview them as that is my favorite decade and I love to speak to celebrities from that time period.
ARTIST’S HOUSE: How did you start your journey with entertainment?
JIMMY STAR: I started as a celebrity clothing designer, dress all of the major horror movie stars, as well as cool celebrities like David Arquette and Elton John. I branched out into radio and then television as more people started to watch the show and we
have built a very cool following of loyal friends who support our show.
ARTIST’S HOUSE: What is your most joyful childhood memory?
JIMMY STAR: I had a wonderful childhood. My father worked for Delta Airlines, and since we were able to fly for free, I was lucky enough to travel abroad every year on wonderful vacations like Spain, France, Italy, England, and the Caribbean.
ARTIST’S HOUSE: Your favorite food?
JIMMY STAR: I am a steak and potatoes man…. And Mexican food, lol…
ARTIST’S HOUSE: Your biggest dream?
JIMMY STAR: To do red carpet interviews at the Academy Awards, The Emmy Awards and the Grammy Awards.
ARTIST’S HOUSE: What is the most important thing you are doing and why?
JIMMY STAR: I started a boutique public relations firm called World Star PR, which works with indie artists, musicians, filmmakers, authors etc… to help them get publicity and exposure for a very inexpensive price in the world of PR. We work on a month to month basis, no contracts, and our fee is only $650 a month, which is a very, very low price, and indie artists get better results with us than if they were working with a normal PR firm that would charge $1500-$5000 a month. Giving back to the community that has supported me for my career.
ARTIST’S HOUSE: Is there any place in the world you would like to visit?
JIMMY STAR: I have been to most of the places that are on my bucket list…my husband Ron Russell wants to go to Egypt, so lets say Egypt.
