A 22-year-old girl who appears as a “Blue Fairy” in an amateur music video that glorifies prescription drug abuse was among a group of 32 people arrested in a large narcotics bust on Staten Island this week, police said.

Sharissa Turk and 31 others between the ages of 18 and 54, have been arrested in an NYPD narcotics operation that found hundreds pills of Oxycodone, Vicodin and Xanax, as well as 250 grams of cocaine and 209 glassines of heroin.

Turk appears in the YouTube music video entitled “My World is Blue”, which features scenes such as people dancing inside Duane Reade and singing about drug use and culture on Staten Island.

The “Blue Fairy” sold Oxycodone to an undercover cop on three separate occasions. She was arrested at the gift store Edible Arrangements where she works on Wednesday and charged with criminal sale of a controlled substance. She was arraigned in Staten Island Criminal Court on Thursday.

Police also recovered a loaded 380-caliber semi-automatic pistol at the home of one of the suspects on Figurea Avenue.

Brian Piscopo, 29, also sold three firearms to undercover cops in two separate occasions last year.
