She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Grey Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Mazomanie Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondergrey - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Skylar) and a fashion line called “Skylar Grey Seduction”.
