LOS ANGELES — Former porn star Lupe Fuentes announced today the launch of her new YouTube channel and the upcoming release of a second music video from her all-girl pop group The Ex-Girlfriends.

“I feel reborn,” Fuentes said. “I feel like my true life has just begun and I’m ready to face life’s challenges along this journey.”

Fuentes has launched a bi-lingual lifestyle channel on YouTube on which she offers five-minute makeup and hairstyle tutorials, cooking and fitness tips and reviews of health and beauty products.

Fuentes, a one-time Wicked Pictures and Teravision contract star known for her diminutive height, quit the adult industry in 2011.

She resurfaced in November, fronting The Ex-Girlfriends on the independently produced pop single "We Are the Party."

The song's music video featured a cameo by genre superstar Danny Trejo ("Machete") and garnered more than 25 million views on YouTube in its first three weeks.

March will find Fuentes releasing a new music video for The Ex-Girlfriends' second single "Whatcha Lookin' At," from a forthcoming, full-length CD.

“I love to share my passions, ideas and insight through my music and my video segments," Fuentes said. “I get to let everyone know the real me.”
