Jeffree Star is one of the biggest YouTubers in the world, with a huge international following and a cosmetics company that ships all over the world. Not only that, but due to the demands of his makeup brand, Star travels the globe, meeting fans from distant locales, which might leave people wondering if Jeffree Star speaks Spanish or any other foreign language.
It’s thought that Jeffree Star does not speak Spanish. There is no evidence to be found that Jeffree Star can speak any language other than English. However, that does not mean Star does not immerse himself in other cultures when traveling.
Keep reading below to learn about the Spanish language, Jeffree Star’s Southern California background, why Jeffree Star might know some Spanish, even if he doesn’t speak it fluently, and some of Jeffree’s most exotic trips during his time in the spotlight.
The Spanish Language and California’s Spanish Speaking Population
Spanish is one of the world’s top most spoken languages with 483 million native speakers. Though Spanish is mostly spoken in Spain and the Americas, there are 21 countries where Spanish is the official language.
Due to California’s proximity to Mexico, Spanish is among the most popular choices to learn when studying a foreign language and high school students are required to take one year of a secondary language in order to graduate, and it is a requirement for entry to most universities, as well.
Jeffree Star was born and raised in Orange County, California. Though Star himself is not Hispanic, he grew up in an area where 24.8% of the population speaks Spanish, meaning he likely encountered the language while growing up, and possibly had it as his foreign language requirement.
After graduating high school, Star moved to Los Angeles to pursue a music career, and ultimately started his YouTube channel and makeup brand in the area. Los Angeles is even more diverse than Orange County, and 37.9% of the population speak Spanish in the area.
Star also proved to be a fan of Mexican headwear when he was tagged in a fan’s photo donning a sombrero, with the caption saying “Viva Mexico.” The photo appears to be from the period during Star’s music career, before he started his makeup brand and shot to superstardom.
Star Travels Afar
Now that Jeffree Star is one of the biggest names in the makeup industry, Star often travels with his entourage to distant locales, whether for work or pleasure. Star’s personal net worth is estimated to be around $200 million and his makeup brand, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, is valued at $1.5 billion, meaning Star has the cash to travel in style.
Jeffree Star routinely rents private planes so he and his guests can travel in peace without the hassle of a commercial flight. Not only that, but Star often films videos from the sky be it via private jet, helicopter or hot air balloon.
Vacation in Bora Bora
Not only did Star visit those French and German speaking countries, but he and his then-boyfriend, Nathan, jet-setted off to Bora Bora, with Star posting a cute snap of the duo hanging out over the water on Twitter. The couple took in the sites of Bora Bora, all while enjoying snorkeling, swimming with sharks and heading out on wave runners during their trip.

Though Jeffree Star does not appear to speak a second language fluently, he travels often enough that he has undoubtedly picked up some conversational phrases, and has the time and money to pursue learning a foreign language, should it ever strike his fancy.
