Makeup mogul Jeffree Star is well-known for being transparent with fans when it comes to his products and his life, and now he’s shared a rather bizarre Instagram message that had followers in stitches.

We can all relate to being sent a weird message at least once in our lives, whether it be an email from a stranger, a Skype note from a friend or acquaintance, or a text message from a family member. 

With the rise of social media, though, you have to wonder what influencers and celebrities’ inboxes look like, especially in today’s day and age where sending a DM can be done with just one simple click.

Jeffree Star’s bizarre Instagram DM

On January 25, the 34-year-old uploaded a screenshot to Twitter from a “new fan” of his who shared a rather ‘too much information’ story with the YouTuber.

“You gained a new fan today my friend,” the message read. “The wife gave me a good [inappropriate act] today but I have to buy her the supreme box for $140. Where can I buy [it]?”

In response, Star tweeted the image with the caption “Good to know…” with three laughing emojis, clearly shocked yet amused by what he’d been sent.

The “supreme box” the sender was talking about was in reference to a product from the American’s makeup line Jeffree Star Cosmetics, which sells three tiers “mystery boxes” filled with surprise items for holidays such as Halloween and Christmas.

For Valentine’s Day on February 14, the company is selling the third tier “supreme” box for $145, and it seems as though the messenger’s wife was looking to cop one this season, and traded favors with her husband in order to get one.

The sets usually disappear quickly due to being one of the YouTube star’s best-selling product lines as the contents inside are usually worth a lot more than the price paid for the boxes.

The whole situation just goes to show that nobody is immune to receiving strange messages – not even multi-millionaire makeup mogul Jeffree Star.

Though, the brief glimpse fans saw of his Instagram inbox is probably just the tip of a rather large iceberg – at least he could see the funny side of it.

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

The 2013 was an enormous success, largely thanks to Matthew McConaughey’s highly regarded performance.

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

Topic begins at 1:19

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
