Pitbull Is A Genius, I'll Tell You Why
You either hate him or you love him, but chances are you've heard of him. You've heard his name being dropped in different songs and you've done the bump-and-grind to his music on the dance floor. He's gained popularity (and money) by spitting one-liners, or just a random concoction of words in music videos. He has also made Cuban slang super popular (like 'dale'), and you've got people who don't know a lick of Spanish, singing along to his lyrics like they're native Spanish speakers. He has certainly built a music empire within the Latino community and beyond. Although there aren't many globally well-known Cuban musicians from Miami, that didn't stop this super star for making quite a dent in the entertainment industry. Mister Worldwide is strategic in the world of entertainment, using the super famous to further advance his career -- some people may say it's because he's talentless. I think it's because he's a true businessman, and he just knows how to target new and current fans alike. Maybe his talent just lies in something differently. He is also a businessman who works hard behind the scenes. He has a TV development company, a line of fragrances, and partnerships with Kodak, Voli Vodka, and Bud Light. However, let's just be reminded that this 3-0-5 guy was first a rapper. Check out this video of him freestyling in St Louis, Missouri: Ayyy. Pitbull is able to tap into the Latin market so heavily because not only does he perform with a mix of Spanish and English, he just understands the culture, specifically the Latin culture within Miami. As someone who is Latina, and raised in 3-0-5, specifically Little Havana, Miami, it's refreshing to see someone to come out of the thick of things, and make it on a global scale. His music penetrates into so many cultures, countries, and tongues. Did you know that Pitbull is also helping out the community he grew up in? Not only is he a businessman and entrepreneur, but he's a community leader. He helped create the Sports Leadership and Management Academy, which is also known as SLAM. The academy is a charter school in Miami that has a sports-based curriculum. 3-0-5 REPRESENT! “I’ve applied everything I’ve learned to this city,” he said. “Our city was never respected when it came to music, even though we were big parts of history. When you have people like 2 Live Crew...maybe their music wasn’t accepted...but you have someone like Luther Campbell who fought for the First Amendment. That gave us a chance to rap about what we wanna rap about. I feel like he got stripped of his history. I said if I ever wanted to be something in Miami I needed to go through the King of Miami; so I started dealing with Luther Campbell. One thing that Lu’ taught me was an independent state of mind. He was putting out his own music with no label. And that’s why we’re here today.” (Vice) Pitbull admits that the music industry is more than just talent, and actually more about business. "I wouldn't want the most talented person on my line, I'd want the hardest working. The one that doesn't understand the word lose, only the word learn." Pitbull is spitting some truth, you guys. The music business, is in fact, a business. And sometimes, the actual music talent plays a very small role. It's largely about public appearances, interviews, partnering with other music artists or companies, and giving the 'wow' factor in everything you do. According to Rolling Stone journalist Simon Vozick-Levinson, Pitbull's fame is only get to bigger. "He's someone who's not going to stop until he takes over the world." Pitbull understands how important it is to tap into the global market, and that is what he is currently doing. With an interview with NPR, Pitbull mentions how the whole point is to reach as many people as you can, to get the message across. Go to any city, and you'll hear his music bleeding through the club's speakers. He's a genius because he understands the entertainment industry and knows what sells. He's not just an artist -- he's a marketer, businessman, a community leader, a teacher, and an entertainer. So maybe he gets a lot of shit for not being the most 'talented' artist, but one thing is for sure: Mister 3-0-5 is definitely now Mister Worldwide. DALE...You on fire. ;)
You'll Never Guess What People Eat At The Movies Across The Globe
Yuck. There are hundreds of countries around the world sitting in movie theaters across the globe. One big difference is the food they eat while in the audience. From dried bugs to salted candies, world customs really have their own distinct palette. Though Americans believe there's nothing in the world that could be better than a nice bag full of buttery popcorn, they are in for a huge surprise. Check out the movie theater snacks from around the world. You're going to be shocked. USA: Salted, Buttery, Popcorn It's crunchy. It's addicting. It's SO American. Popcorn is a very traditional snack without a ton of calories...that is, if you don't drench it in a pool of butter and salt. Popcorn has had a long standing reservation in our culture, primarily since corn is such in abundance within our country. We've muti-purposed corn to be just about anything but popcorn is still our favorite creation. Just remember, a small popcorn won't get you through intermission. A large popcorn will make you feel fat. But who cares, right? Great Britain: Sugared Popcorn Why am I not surprised that Great Britain would have a seamlessly more proper snack? Compared to American, the Brits always seem to do the exact opposite. From my personal view, I just don't understand the thrill of sugary popcorn. However then again, kettle corn and caramel corn is a huge success in the States. Brits are notorious for their bitter drinks such as coffee and tea paired with a very decadent and sweet dessert. I guess it's only fitting, pinkies up. Japan: Iwashi Senbei The first idea that popped into your mind was probably not that these are sardine rice crackers. The crisps are baked in sugar and soy sauce to give them their distinct taste. Rice is a very traditional food within the country so it's no surprise it is a snack as well. And with Japan being a very dependent country on its seafood industry, it's obvious that a leading snack brand would be fish based. Still interesting. Brazil: Roasted Ants Okay GROSS. As an American, I will never understand the love for eating bugs. We get it, they are packed with a ton of protein and have a nice crunch. But it's so taboo in American culture. On the other hand, Brazilians loves them. It's an aphrodisiac, or food that stimulates sexual desire, which could be the reason for why Brazilians are such a fan. Talk about a passive aggressive way to show your date that you want to hook up. Norway: Dried Reindeer Meat Somewhere in the North Pole, Santa is crying. This food seems so fitting though for the region. Reindeer meat is cut and then dried for a chewy taste. Very similar to beef jerky in the States. Reindeer meat boasts very low fat and high protein. However, I can't seem to feel sympathy for Rudolph & his gang once they find out that the Norwegians are snacking on their friends. Guess Norway is going to become the land of misfits toys soon enough... South Korea: Dried Cuttlefish I guess this goes hand in hand with popcorn in the Asian nation. With a meaty texture and briny flavor, apparently South Koreans can't get enough. It can be seasoned in a variety of flavors. Though they're also fans of roasted chestnuts, dried cuttlefish still frequently comes out as the fan favorite. I still don't know what a cuttlefish is. Russia: Beluga Caviar This is reserved for the rich and only the rich but a very common wealthy delicacy. Though the average folk may not be accustomed to eating the beluga caviar themselves, they know exactly who is receiving it when they attend the movie theater. Apparently movies in Russia are a more fancy affair, something Americans and other world countries would gawk at. With Russia being known to have extreme customs, this one tops the cake. Greece: Souvlaki Okay, this looks delicious. Lamb or beef souvlaki will be a fit for an Grecian attending an outdoor movie. They're tender and savory and it's already making my mouth water. Grecians are notorious for having the best food in the world and it's no surprise that their movie theaters also come with a wide delicious variety of choices. Please fly me to Greece because I'm starving. Netherlands: Salty Licorice This could be the most hated snack in America. Black licorice is a very distinct taste that very few people enjoy. In America, our black licorice contains a lot of sugar. However in the Netherlands, they salt their licorice with ammonium chloride which gives eaters a tongue-numbing sensation. Is this candy a drug? No thank you. India: Samosas This is my favorite. Look how good that looks! Bollywood theaters are all the rage in India far more popular than any Western movie. Samosas are potato stuffed pastries that taste as good as they look. With Bollywood movies comes a delicious combo of chutney and cheese sandwiches and vada pav, potato fritters in a bread bun. I could definitely ship this idea in the USA.
