"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
UnHealthy Beverage companies are snatchin up yer favorite Pop Stars like they’re Playing Cards !!
First you had Beyonce inking another Multi-Million Dollar deal with Pepsi, which also is financing her Personal Ventures to even further expand Her Own Brand… Because it will still Ultimately Benefit the Pepso Co Brand.
Then Country “I Date Everybody To Write Songs About How Horrible They Are” Ms. Taylor Swift signed on with Aspartame filled Diet Coke.
Now you’ve Got Justin Timberlake to be the first Pop Star to join this level of Pop Marketing. Anheuser-Busch announced that Justin Timberlake is now a part of their team for Bud Light Platinum in order to help them keep a Pulse on this Culture and will help them with the Branding and Marketing of this Product. Yeah, maybe they can do a Joint Venture with MySpace. Sure
Bud Light Platinum has already used songs by Avicii and Kanye West’s Instrumental for the song “No Church In The Wild”, which also featured Jay-Z and Frank Ocean. Justin Timberlake’s Song “Suit & Tie” which also has a verse with Jay-Z and Produced by Timbaland is going to be used in a 60-Second Super Bowl Style Commercial to be aired on the Grammy Awards Telecast on February 10th, 2013
What do you all think of the Corporations using your Favorite Pop Stars to Create This World Culture ? Or Do They Create The World Culture, That Creates The Pop Stars… To Further the World Culture ?

Kim Kardashian was out doing what members of her family do best last night.. And that’s pimpin out their drugs of choice.
But Kim was looking mighty fine last night as she was promoting Midori out at Trousdale in Beverly Hills… Trousdale gets all the Celebrity Liquor action these days don’t they?
Kim told us she likes her Midor with either 7Up or Sweet & Sour Juice. I wonder if she really did, or if they just paid her $10 Million Dollars to say that.

Keenan Cahill is a young modern day hero. If you don’t know him by now you’re obviously not on the internet and need to crawl out from under your rock. He lip syncs to some of all the greatest pop hits and is so well choreographed, hilarious and animated with what he does, he never gets less than a Million hits per video.
So it’s no wonder why he even caught the attention of 50 Cent, and the two decided to make their own video for Jeremih‘s song “Down On Me” which features the rapper who has the 9 lives of a cat, one for each bullet he’s taken. But what they didn’t know was that 50′s version with Keenan was the video that actually made “Down On Me” a true bona fide hit. Keenan and 50′s video was posted 5 months ago and now has 30 Million views. The official video with Jeremih and 50 was posted to YouTube about a month later, and is now sitting at 25 million views… still quite impressive, but nowhere near Keenan’s version in his bedroom, and that’s not even counting the copycat video posts that also have views in the millions.
Let’s do the math… out of their collective total, Keenan MORE THAN DOUBLES what would have been the 25 Million plays alone, bringing the grand total to 55. And let’s not mention the fact that Keenan’s video already made the song a more well known hit than radio had at the time. He probably boosted 10 of the 25 Million plays they got.
When you consider Keenan and 50′s version cost $0 and some time, versus Jeremih and 50′s version which probably cost upwards of $500,000… Keenan and 50′s version is one of the best video / music single marketing tools of all time.
What makes it even more gangster, is Keenan didn’t even clean up his room… NOT EVEN FOR 50 CENT !!
Check out the two videos below, and you tell me which one is more entertaining.
