Former Miss World, and Bollywood actress and singer, Priyanka Chopra is the first Indian to be a Guess girl. “I’m not too American and I’m not too Indian, but I’m a global citizen. I don’t want to have to change who I am to try and fit in or cater to a certain audience,” she added. She is now an aspiring pop star with two international singles.
"Exotic” featuring Pitbull, and “In My City” featuring will.i.am, to her credit.
Guru has been busy for several months, writing music, and singing, and putting together an album for
his fans and new fans will love.
First time I heard him, I did not even know the language he was singing.
He co-wrote a song with Arjun [Same Girl ] and when I heard his voice, I was like who is that?
Not long after that he put out his first Single titled, Chhad Gayi. I was blown away again
with his vocals. How can one be singing in a language I had no clue what it was, and yet understand it?
Its the way he sung it, it was like a straight connection to the soul. So I am one of his biggest fans, and I am thrilled to say his new album is complete. He has named his album "Page1".
Though there is fine detail on legals, and paper work, photography, etc. I am almost impossible to be around with. I am going crazy over the Release details, as they will do Promotions, and he did say, "Coming to Stores Soon". So as I and other fans await this Release, we are just getting more and more impatient.
I for one, more so, as I live in USA. This past Spring and Summer were spent helping promote and spread the news of many new movies, and music, from overseas. I was not able to see any of the movies or buy too many music downloads, or CDs. I am worried about that happening again with Guru.
If this happens, watch out, I am going to fly to India or UK, to pick up my music.
The Maiden's Tower [Turkish: Kız Kulesi], also known as Leander's Tower [Tower of Leandros] since the medieval Byzantine period, is a tower lying on a small islet located at the southern entrance of the Bosphorus strait, from the coast of Üsküdar in Istanbul, Turkey.
During my travels to Turkey [Turkiye] I passed the Village of Yakakent on my way to Bafra. I saw all this tabacco being dried outside to sell. Behind the home you could see the Black Sea. It was a beautiful setting, with grapevines growing through arches. The home was quiet old, non the lest, it was a home for this family. They had cattle they were milking, hens running around, huge cornfield next to them, and some young children. I gave the children gifts of candies and small toys. They invited me to share their dinner on the broken porch, home made bread, with some grilled lamb, and a salad that looked and tasted so fresh. After wards, I helped the children learn some simple English words, while I sipped on tea. I felt right at home. Pretty soon the village had heard I was nearby, and I gave out more gifts to the ladies and children. Before I knew, another family had invited me to their home, and there I went. [No is not an option] The next family greeted me like close family, which I was not, but they sure acted so darn friendly, and so lovable. Within a few minutes women starting setting a long table of food, and the food kept coming to soups, breads, rice, meats, salads, pastries, to watermelon. I don't know how I ever even got up from that table. I could see when they open the door to bring out the food, women, lots of women in the kitchen. Village women had come to help cook. I was in awe of the hospitality, not only had I met them like 30 minutes before, it was like I was family they had not seen in years. This family also provide from their farm to companies to make there earnings. Once in a life time treatment like royal you say? Its like this everywhere I went. Good thing I had brought extra gifts from the girls at eBay, like small soaps, keychains, purses, makeup and more. I even collected all the toys from the McDonald's meals, even some ladies provided me cash donations [I never asked] to purchase more candies.
Being one of the most labor intensive agricultural production activities,tobacco production is an important source of employment.
Most of its labor requirements are met through family labor.
With approximately 600.000 tobacco growers in Turkey,
and assuming the involvement of 2.5 persons per family,
tobacco production employs some 1.5 million persons.
More are employed in other tobacco-related activities,
like transportation, storage, trade and cigarette manufacturing.
A spokesperson for the mosque said Rihanna had come for a private tour, but had never coordinated her visit in advance.The mosque statement, published Monday in local newspapers, said Rihanna was in an area normally off limits for visitors. It says the fashion-style photo session violated rules on the “status and sanctity of the mosque.” The mosque is a major tourist site in the United Arab Emirates’ capital. Rihanna has not commented on Saturday’s incident. [ Click Link below for more] OK- so Rihanna was doing a private tour, but failed to let officials know she is coming, and still goes...unprofessional on both parts. Though Rihanna still was there, and dressed fashionably so to shoot. Since no one was with them, she chose to take some shots in front of a famous mosque, at lest she is dressed. What the motives are for her to have shots for herself, or a photo shoot, I guess time will tell. I am not going to say if anyone is right or wrong, though Rihanna knows what she is doing. I am sure in her old days she will remember this moment. The spokesperson for the mosque, should have scheduled a tour guide, and rules. So whatever the reasons on Rihanna's part, maybe she will re-think the matter. No photos at a mosque could be that important to her, that she should displayed on social sites. She is already famous and does not need this kind of publicity. But if she knowingly did this, for a quick publicity, or a photo shoot for a brand, then they will be dealt with. I am not on either sides, but one should respect the religious aspect of the mosque. Religion is already a hard to discuss anywhere. I have visited many Christian tourist sites in Turkey. I was amazed, at how many Christians came inside the Churches with shorts, food, and talking loud. I am born in USA, and felt embarrassed by this. If your going inside the Church please wear at lest a skirt, and don't kneel in front of a sacred coffin, photo, etc. with short shorts on. Everyone at any religious site should just be respectful, lets start there at lest. To Read the original article click LINK below: More on Rihanna at UAE
