Patrick Starr quips about his celebrity fans Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks on BBMA Red Carpet
Among the tons of celebrity friendships and shoutouts at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, YouTube makeup artist Patrick Starr talking about his trysts with the likes of Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks is certainly something that caught everyone's attention. Starr is one of the biggest beauty content creators in the industry, known as one of the first "men in makeup" on YouTube. With many influencers during his tenure, he's been filming beauty tutorials since 2013. Not only did Starr talk about his elite friendships but also gave MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) some wholesome advice and a few handy Red Carpet tips.
Starr spoke to MEAWW of his encounter with Klum at the American Music Awards. "So at the AMAs, this lady grabbed me from behind and she was like Patrick! I love you! My kids love you! And I turned around to see it was Heidi Klum."
"Its just really cool to see these bunch of celebrities recognize me — their children or their families, Tracee Ellis Ross, Mel B, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell and its really fun to see that media in the digital age can really make an impact on other people and the traditional world, whether you're a supermodel or a reality TV star or a musician . It's just really really cool and special."
When asked about how far his career has come, Starr replied saying he never thought he'd reach this point. And that is one of the main reasons he attends these events because the people who look and feel like him at home have someone to look up to, since he never had someone like that representing the minorities, breaking beauty boundaries and creating disruption and change.
He also quipped about his beauty hack of keeping a powder puff in his bra and touching up his face every time he gets sweaty while grooving to music or dancing.
