ABOUT JOANNA ANGEL AND BURNINGANGEL
Pushing the envelope, the BurningAngel Empire is a refreshingly unique web cocktail of sex, rock n’ roll and pop culture. BurningAngel.com launched in 2002 with a few sets of photos and a band interview, conceived by two amateur college kids from Rutgers, Joanna Angel and Mitch Fontaine. Since its launch, it has exploded into a fierce indie company that has pioneered a new species of erotica known as “alt porn,” with a network of websites and hundreds of DVDs to its credit.
The company is revered for popularizing alternative style girls, and prides itself on delivering hardcore adult content alongside band interviews, record reviews and a community with its own social networking. As both the star of many of BurningAngel’s movies and the company’s spokesperson and owner, Joanna Angel has stormed both mainstream and adult media. She’s appeared on the cover of every major adult magazine (AVN, Club, Hustler, Picture Magazine, Adam Film World and Xtreme, to name a few) and has been featured in many tattoo magazines as well (some include Prick, Taboo, Inked and Savage). She has been featured on Fox News, Playboy TV, Fuse TV, G4 TV, KROQ Radio, as a regular on the Jason Ellis show on SIRIUS Radio, a guest on the 2008 series premiere of TLC’s LA Ink, and in a speaking role on Adult Swim’s “Children’s Hospital.”
Angel has also appeared in The New York Times, Newsweek, The Village Voice, The New York Press, Esquire UK, Details and Penthouse, among others. Heeb Magazine featured Joanna as its cover girl, naming her one of the Top 100 Up-and-Coming Jews in 2005, The New York Post featured her as one of the Top 25 Sexiest New Yorkers, and Playboy.com named Joanna Angel one of the 50 hottest adult stars on Instagram.
