LOS ANGELES—Adult star Jessie Andrews is featured in this week's edition of LA Weekly's 2013 People issue, its annual look at the most interesting Angelenos.
The article, titled "Jessie Andrews: The Porn Star as a Brand", chronicles Andrews' personal journey from American Apparel salesgirl, to AVN Award winning performer, to a now certifiable brand with her fingers in jewelry, fashion design, music and other creative endeavors.
"Her nice-girl image is all part of her brand, which she's been crafting and promoting on her self-titled Tumblr ever since launching it in 2010, back when she was still a chubby-cheeked, bleach-blonde Miami teenager," Jennifer Swann wrote for the Weekly. "Nowadays she's scaling back the porn work—only girl-on-girl—and is working to build fashion and music businesses."
Andrews' extracurricular activities include Bagitaba, her line of handmade jewelry, along with a streetwear collaboration with U.K.-based clothing designers Hype, in addition to her own line of adult toys from Doc Johnson.
The piece also mentions Andrews' foray into the EDM scene where she contributes to The Girlfriend Mix series where she collaborates with other female DJs to create original mixes. Listen to her music here.
