The multi-hyphenate singer, producer and clothing mogul last week celebrated the launch of his newest venture, Qream, a “premium liqueur” for women created with spirits maker Diageo. “I looked at the market, I looked at the holes out there,” he told Rap-Up, “and it felt like indulgence and women were the two things that were being neglected.” At last, Pharrell is here to fill our neglected holes with his Qream.

As someone who defines a drink for women as “any drink that drink happens to be in front of me,” I was curious to see what Mr. Williams thought women wanted. Turns out it sounds like something dreamed up by a 15-year-old who’s grown weary of root beer Schnapps. When asked to describe Qream, Pharrell, who admits he doesn’t drink much himself, took a full seven-second pause to come up with, “It’s definitely in the ice cream world. In the shake world … Except its damn-near 95% lactose free.”

 

50 cent makes $50 million in one day & shut down World Star Hip Hop?

Posted in Entertainment, Inspiration, Life, Social Trend, Tech, Twitter with tags , , , on January 24, 2011 by tokyosparkz

Rapper 50 Cent sent a tweet out to his 3,888,543 million followers and took credit for shutting down popular urban website, WorldstarHipHop.com.

The site went down without warning earlier today (January 24th).

Just moments ago, 50 Cent took to Twitter and took credit for the site’s disruption, squashing rumors that the site was seized by Homeland Security, like several other websites in November of 2010.

“I don’t know why people underestimate me. I just shut down WORLDSTAR for future advertising contact thisis50.com suckers lol,” 50 Cent tweeted. “I put worldstar to bed, you don’t believe try me I will shut your sh*t down. Lol.”

In November of 2009, 50 Cent filed a lawsuit against the website, claiming his image and content was used on the website without permission.

“I have lawyers on retainers and I have to pay them so much money anyway, so we’ll go back and forth to court until (they) can’t afford a Subway sandwich,” 50 Cent said in 2009. “It’s already too late for (them).”

Reps for WorldStarHipHop.com have not responded to a request for a statement as of press time.

50 issued an ominous prediction that may come true this week.

“I predict 2 more web sites will shut down this week. Take a guess who they are. I’m sick of the hate I’m to strong,” 50 Cent tweeted.

Were 50 Cent’s tweets this weekend the most valuable tweets of all time?

I think they probably were, not only did he shut down World Star Hip Hop this year but also made $50 million from tweeting!

Penny stock HNHI — a distributor of headphones — were surging after 50 Cent tweeted about it all weekend.

The stock ended up closing up a staggering 240%.
Here’s the chart:

At the current market cap of $71 million (per Yahoo Finance) that’s a $50 million gain from Friday.

Check out the tweets that made 50’s pockets go ka-ching!


Obviously 50’s being compensated. How much? A LOT.

This SEC filing shows that he owned 30 million shares. Seeing as each one gained $.29 today, that’s nearly $10 million for one weekend of tweeting.

How to Find Inspiration When You’re Feeling Down

Posted in Dating, Entertainment, Female's, HELP, iBelieve, Inspiration, Life, Love, Men, Music, Poetry, relationship, Social Trend, women on January 17, 2011 by tokyosparkz

There are seasons in life, where troubles and trials appear to be overwhelming.   These times of struggle are not age, race or gender-specific.  For some individuals, they fortunately have a small cadre of supporters to help them weather these temporary storms.  For others, they are forced to play solitaire and deal with these times alone.  In either case, inspiration is an essential process to help take off the blues and to replace them with garments of joy and happiness.  Inspiration is a very robust term, but I think that most would agree that it is a process whereby our minds and/or emotions receive provocation to perform at a higher or a more creative level.  Genuine inspiration can lift our spirits and enable us to do things out of the ordinary.

Oftentimes, individuals think that they cannot find any inspiration in life, but there are many small things that you can do to brighten your day and to reach toward new heights.  Here are at least eight little, inexpensive things you can start doing to inspire yourself.  Importantly, this is not an all-inclusive list of actions.

Go for a nature walk. Taking a walk along a peaceful nature trail, especially with beautiful autumn colors manifesting across the country, can be very refreshing.  Alternatively, a stroll to a nearby botanical garden can also prove helpful in enlivening a sore soul.  When you’re feeling down, brisk air and the beautiful aesthetics of nature may be just what you need.

Visit some new places. Sometimes, the busyness of life prevents individuals from experiencing new places.  Whether it’s a museum, art gallery, health foods store, outdoor theater or restaurant, give it a try.  Visiting new places can certainly prove beneficial in lifting your spirits.

Read inspirational literature. Whether it’s reading a sacred text or inspirational literature from one of your favorite authors, take a little bit time to read some pages to improve your pensive state of mind.  Alternatively, a book of daily inspirational quotes may prove beneficial.  If you are not into inspirational quotes, then motivational poetry can prove helpful.

Meet new people. Oftentimes, certain individuals in our everyday microcosm can try to bring you down.  Hence, it could prove profitable to remove toxic people from your life and replace them with positive people who will exhort you toward a better life.  Meeting new, encouraging people at a place of interest can be very rewarding.

Encourage others. Even when you are feeling down, it is still beneficial to try to offer someone else an encouraging word or a smile.  Sometimes, seeing how we have positively impacted another person’s life is just what we need to lift our spirits as we endure our trials.

Pray for inspiration. Prayer is often forgotten as an excellent weapon to combat the blues.  Spending some time by yourself and praying for inspiration and a better disposition and countenance can be just what you need.  Countless individuals from around the world can attest to the wonderful power of prayer.

Listen to some inspirational music. Whether it’s John Legend, Common, Mary J. Blige, Jill Scott, Beethoven, Mozart, John Coltrane, Nina Simone, Marvin Sapp or Yolanda Adams, music is a powerful force relative to inspiration.  Taking a few moments of your time to listen to beautiful musicianship and profound lyricism can certainly boost a weary soul.  There is probably a song in your library that pertains to your situation.

Watch inspirational and/or humorous movies. Laughter is good for the soul.  Oftentimes, watching one of your favorite comedians- whether it’s Kevin Hart, Cedric the Entertainer or Mike Epps- can help lift one’s spirit.  If you are not into comedy, then watching an inspirational movie may prove profitable.

10 Things that Men Check Out About Women

Posted in Dating, Inspiration, Life, Men, relationships, Social Trend on January 8, 2011 by tokyosparkz

Men are smitten by different things: some are booty-ologists, some men are taken by long hair or a nice smile.  But if you’re missing a particular asset, that doesn’t leave you sexually bankrupt, because you never know what’s going to get that man going.  You can think of a man’s attraction to be like money in a bank account: It doesn’t matter if you fill it with five dollar bills, ten dollar bills or twenties, you just have to have a certain amount in the end.  So, even if a guy is a leg man, a woman with average legs might still get him by having a great smile, and a stellar personality.  Missing one thing doesn’t kill your sex appeal.  Here’s a short list of the things that men notice about women.  You may know some of this already, but you’ve never heard it quite like this:

1) The size of the badonk-adonk
The black man’s love affair with the booty probably goes back thousands of years.  We write songs about it, we dream about it, we talk about it and we always take a peak at you as you’re walking away (like a mandatory booty check).  If you don’t have the booty, all is not lost though, since you may catch your man with something else.

2)  The breast-asiz

I have no idea why men have a fascination with a woman’s breasts, but “the boobies” are sure-fire conversation starters at any social gathering. Some men like them as large as possible, while others just want to know that you have them.  We don’t quite know what we will do with them, but we just want them, period.  Unfortunately, the less endowed women of the world are stuck with the same embarrassment that men feel when women make fun of the size of a man’s baby-maker.   But in the same vein, a lot of gorgeous women are not so well endowed, and still get lots of play.

3) What beautiful hair you have!

There’s a reason women will go bankrupt taking care of their hair.  Hair, for women, gives them the strength of their sex appeal.  You can rock it short, long, curly, straight or nappy, as long as you have your own personal swag.  Just find a man with tastes that match what you’re wearing.  You also know by now that men are always peeking.

4) What do you use those lips for anyway?

Thick, juicy lips are always nice on a woman, especially a black one.  Angelina Jolie gets major props for her big lips, but the truth is that black women possess lips like no other (so Angelina is just a substitute for the real thing).  Nice, full lips can get a man’s mind going places that it probably shouldn’t go and may get you on his radar.

5) The eyes have it

There’s nothing more exciting than a woman’s eyes.  A woman’s eyes can be the highway to her soul.  If you’re working the eyes, you might have us hypnotized like five-year olds watching the Disney Channel.

6) Smiles for miles

A smiling, happy, inviting woman can be the sexiest thing in the world.  On the flip, a snarling, mean-looking woman reminds us of our angry, overweight kindergarten teacher who wasn’t getting enough sex.  If you’ve got a nice smile, use it at every available opportunity.  It can make the right man fall in love with you.

7) Beauty is only skin deep. What kind of person are you?

Opinions on this can vary, but personally, I think that a woman who is ugly on the inside can end up nullifying every ounce of her beauty.  Men hope women are going to be nice and engaging, not cold and deceptive.  In fact, the ugliest woman in the world is the one who thinks she can have whatever she wants because she’s so fine.  A little kindness goes a long way, so make sure you’re a whole and complete human being.

8. Are you down for whatever?

Being “down for whatever” is another way of asking if you are loyal.  In a world where most men have enemies to fight on a daily basis, a loyal woman becomes an incredibly valuable asset to that person’s life.  If you are a fly-by-night woman who runs off when times get tough, you’re not worth the time of a relationship, and damn sure aren’t cut out for marriage.

9) What is your “skill set”?

By “skill set,” I’m not talking about skills you can put on a resume.  I’m talking about the “skillz”…..the stuff you can’t really talk about in public.  Even if a woman doesn’t look that good physically, if she can make a dude’s toes curl, she has a good chance of being the one he wants.  Men are physical creatures, and we can’t apologize for that.  If the sex is boring, we’re out.

10) Let me see your legs again?
While the legs don’t tend to have the same appeal as the badonk-adonk, they can make a difference.  Some men like thick, cornbread-eatin legs, and some men like the long, slinky legs that can wrap around your torso.  No matter what the man ends up liking about your legs, they can become the bread and butter to get your man to want you.
