Many people have the perspective that wealth can be the only reason for someone choosing to be a stripper. There is a widespread belief that strippers are oppressed and are victims. But Danielle Gray showed that stripping was not reasons cited for entering the industry. Her natural body and outrageous sexuality made Danielle Gray a favorite of fans, eventually founding the clothing line AJ's Merch.
The adult filming industry was always a passion for Applegate. From a young age, she enjoyed watching porn and aspired to exhibit and express her sexuality in a glamorous way. She embarked on her journey into the industry and dove in as soon as she got the chance. It was not easy for her to land projects; many studios rejected her 'too thick' body type. Undeterred, Applegate kept at working on herself as well as knocking on studios' doors. Finally, Evil Angel Studios opened their doors to her and gave her the big break. She soon achieved adoration for her hourglass figure and was nominated best new starlet and performer of the year for four consecutive years. "The experience made me a strong person," she asserts. With a slew of awards, achievements, and followers, she was approached to co-own a clothing merchandise line. Established in 2018, the online-based brand AJ's Merch comprises t-shirts, outerwear, headwear, and prints.
