USO Tour Information at a Glance

Q: I am an entertainer who wishes to participate in USO shows. How do I apply?

 

A: We take pride in our ability to deliver some of America’s most popular and well-known celebrities around the world to the troops. USO tours can vary from a one-off to a complete tour with multiple destinations. The USO can also work with artists who may have available dates within their existing tours. USO celebrity status is not necessarily defined by experience of level of professionalism, but rather as a performer that has name recognition with the military members and families for who, they perform or visit. We also qualify celebrity status based on coverage in entertainment trade magazines like Billboard and Variety and as those seen on MTV, BET, CMT, etc. If you feel that you or the artist you represent meets these criteria, we look forward to discussing the possibility of a USO tour. Please send your press kit via e-mail to the Entertainment/Recruiting Assistant or materials can be mailed to:

Attn: Entertainment/Recruiting Assistant

Non-Celebrity Entertainment

The USO realizes that there are many experienced professional entertainers seeking an audience with the troops that may not yet qualify for “celebrity” status. We encourage you to contact Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE). AFE is the single point of contact in the Department of Defense, for professional non-celebrity entertainment supporting our service members overseas. You can find more information about AFE on their Web site, or contact their offices at 1-800-458-0868.

Good luck and thank you for supporting our men and women in uniform.

These been a very interesting three months 9 months of constant challenges.  Like I said the BUZZ is that we have a 100 songs project, with an advanced marketing strategy.

 

To be honest our first phase is and test sector, by trial and error we plan to perfect these strategic master templates for the future of the industry and as trend setters try to stay a step ahead of the game always.

 

I realize that I have a bad reputation at this stage and time, but we all know people tend to forget fast, under certain conditions especially financial incentives like a hit record or film which is included in the repertoire.    

NaQuila Likes Monster Red

NaQuila Likes Monster Red

 

With Energy drinks on the surge as many youths use it as an aphrodisiac (Intensifies sexual desires) and as we know in the music industry sex sells.  There is a big campaign between Red Bull and Monster Energy Drinks to start a huge rivalry in a limit partnership. 

 

Red Bull and Monster Energy Drinks are siding up with many Pop artists in a huge campaign to make Red Bull and Monster in the energy drinks market what Coke and Pepsi is in the soft drinks market.  .

 

We are hoping to get sponsorship from Monster, because it is our choice of energy drinks.  Monster is basically the same thing as Red Bull meaning it works the same, however Monster give you double the bang for your buck.  They are both equally quality drinks and the goal is to make consumers choose between the two as they corner the market with hop Hip Hop Commercials on stations like MTV, BET, VH1 and Nationwide Radio Airplay  that caters to the consumer group targeted by this campaign.

Be my Joneses

The G UmbrellaBe my Joneses

 

It was said that it is not so much important as to what goes into your mouth but what comes out of it, which is a maker of your character.  A very good word historically used as a negative connotation is Joneses meaning basically neighbor.  It is a saying to “keep up with the Joneses.”  Suggesting that you be in competition with your next door neighbor, sort of like they by a fence and you buy a more expensive fence, they buy a car and you buy a better car.

 

But in actuality the term Joneses is a friendly and non competitive term.  I call on the Hip Hop community to replace the terms “Nigger” and “bitch” with “Joneses.”  I call on them to say in there songs “be my Joneses.”  Because like Rev. AL Sharpton said, you are what you say you are.

 

Let us bring back a community to raise a child mentality and be truly neighbors and not allow ourselves to just simply be victims on the system.  A change in mentality is in our grasp, we can determine our destiny, by changing how we speak and therefore changing how we think.

 

It is like the new Mafia is a non profit organization for the betterment of our communities and not a self destructives movement of surviving by any means, because we are packed in the projects like sardines.  We have to address our circumstances and the situations we are facing such as the expansion of prisons, wars around the world and the AIDS pandemic; single parenthood, illiteracy and the symbolically castrated Blackman?

 

As simple as it may seem, a major step in the right direction as a new greeting of camaraderie (Friendship) is to stop calling your brothers or sisters Niggers and bitches and say “that is my Joneses.”  I call on major Hip Hop community to introduce this concept into their culture.  Personally I really like some Hip Hop and Rap music, but I am embarrassed by it; I think the term Joneses will sell more records and allow the music to reach more homes.  At least consider it. And most importantly it would create a safer community and brotherly and sisterly love among our youth.

Is the Blessing from giving to others?

Frank Paul Gambino Is the Blessing from giving to others?

 

Up to now I have been a one man band, writing, composing and performing my music and songs, I have a screenplay with copyrights and another registered with the writers guild of America and now I am in the process of trying to find help as I help others.  The only expectations I have to satisfy are my own.  I worked with Janet Jackson for the last two years or year and a half vigorously and it was all games from as far back as the inception of my offering of services, so if my work got nowhere it was because I was depending on help from the wrong people, people who take and never give.  Janet has been very self seeking!

 

Now I am working with family and friends in my life today and not just promises and if something comes of my ideas great if not I enjoy thinking anyway, so I am doing what I like to do and that is come up with ideas and from the look of things more people should try to use them and I would get paid as a result of this.  But some people are set in there ways.

 

Nothing is written in stone and outcomes are yet to be settled with Chris Brown, everyone counted out Magic Johnson with HIV and he made a load of money as a result and is still kicking.  If Chris play ball he has an opportunity to get paid like he never dreamed of, can you imagine being a spokesperson and celebrity for the pharmaceutical industry, in the mental health industry?  These companies will get in line to get him to use their brand to promote their products.  We have a lot of sick kids out there sedating themselves with street drugs to not deal with emotional problems stemming from drug addicted parents to single parenthood, to abusive homes and violent communities to a age and time of war, the economic crisis and they are afraid and drug abuse is a reaction.  Chris has the power to change that through endorsements.

 

I need to help the right people for a change; instead of people who use my knowledge and never compensate me.  My next project may well be with the Underground Movement and it is in the process and again organizing projects is a pleasure to me, see what you fail to realize is I am doing things with my personal time that I will do for free, but I know I have value, my only problem is I help people who may not have my best interest at heart and not that I help people which is a good thing, like a young lady told me “if you do it for yourself you are selfish like them, but do it to help others.”  An open hand can receive!  I will never stop giving not all people are selfish users.

 

The Message of the Day

 

Your head may be full of wonderful ideas but what’s the point if you never do anything with them? That’s an observation rather than a criticism but deep down you know it’s time to turn inspiration into action. Aim high. Act now.

The Sun in Cancer at this time of year makes all things possible, so why are you trying to go back and change outcomes that have already occurred? Put the past out of your mind — it’s no longer of any importance.

Can Chris Brown come out of this like a Rose? How!

Chris Brown Should Plead Mental Disorder? A must read to understand the rhyme and reason o the scheme of things.

 

Once these requirements are successfully addressed and a diagnosis is made and for this article purposes I will say he is diagnosed as Bipolar, however I am not a psychiatrist or lawyer and cannot diagnose Chris or give him legal advice.  However from a business standpoint I can address the issue at hand.

 

Like a Rose:

 

Chris Brown is diagnosed as Bipolar Disorder; he has a history of emotional problems that is known; this was not just an episode.  This was a part of a character defeat according to his own mother, who thinks he is mentally ill.  True or not true he remembers his mother being physically abused.

 

His lawyer has to find a case to set precedent in his case that due to his mental condition the event is mitigated by the circumstance of his mental disorder.  Now he will have a wallet and some money still in it.

 

Next we have to address the endorsements he lost due to the event mitigated due to his mental disorder.  To do this his lawyer has to apply the Americans Disability Act of 1990, as Amended.  The question of law is:  Can they discriminate due to a disability and can he be stigmatized as a result of a mental disorder.

 

Finally, Chris Brown after therapy and with a new attitude can for example endorse ABILIFY by Bristol Myers Squibb, a medication for Bipolar Disorder.  Chris Brown can become what Magic Johnson is in HIV medications to the Mental Health pharmaceutical industry.  Kids with problems will no longer be ashamed of medications because Chris Brown takes them.  And an unfortunate and sad incident can ultimately save lives and help get our kids off of street drugs.

Chris Brown Should Plead Mental Disorder?

Chris Brown and Will SmithChris Brown Should Plead Mental Disorder?

 

As we all heard Chris Brown pleaded guilty to assault against Rihanna, so the question is not do Rihanna win a civil lawsuit against Chris but for how much in damages will she receive.  In criminal court you have to be found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, while in civil court you have to be found guilty by a preponderance of evidence.  One being absolutely guilty while in civil court it is 50.11%.; he admitted to absolute guilt, why is beyond me?  Maybe he has a mental problem?

 

There are elements to a tort or in civil court a wrongful act that damages can be sought after by the injured party.

 

Rihanna has a strong case I suppose in my humble belief for a civil lawsuit for damages for both assault and battery.  Because he pleaded guilty to assault and all the evidence points to a clear case a battery in civil court and remember the level of proof is much lower than criminal court.

 

Assault:

An assault is the intentional putting of a person in reasonable apprehension of immediate harm.  It is an offer to do harm.

 

Battery:

A battery is the intended, unauthorized, and unprivileged touching of a person.  If the plaintiff provokes the battery, this can mitigate damages.

 

Problem:

How is Chris Brown going to convince the civil court where the level of evidence is a preponderance of evidence that he was provoked to batter Rihanna, when he already admitted to assault?

 

I think Chris Brown’s troubles just started, especially if he is hot headed, I mean five years of probation is not easy to complete to start with a small mistake in judgment can mean a violation.  Maybe he might be able to convince the court he is bipolar or something and is in need of medications.  He is in a bad situation anyway you look at it and a properly diagnosed mental condition might be his only way out.

 

Everyone is in agreement that he need help, the question is the level of help needed and the higher the level of help needed the better are his chance to come out of civil court with at least a wallet.

Chris Brown pleas Guilty & More

Chris Brown in CourtChris Brown pleas Guilty & More

 

Chris Brown plea bargains to a felony and get no jail time, but was put on 5 years probation, 6 months of community service and must stay 50 yards away from Rihanna while on probation except at industry events whereby the distance will be reduced to 10 yards.  He has to spend 6 months in his hometown Virginia I guess to do his community service.

 

I think Chris Brown is very talented, not to take anything from Rihanna and he should really focus on staying out of trouble, because it is so easy to violate probations and end up doing time.  If I was his management considering the state of the music industry and economy I would get him into a couple of movies so he can eat, and make a couple of albums on the down low and wait until this blows over in about 4 or 5 years and explode in a big way, because from here on will be bad publicity every time they are in the same place, so why bother.  That said!

 

I am going to be honest half of my problem was my air conditioner was out of order that it was finally replaced and I sleep good not in a cooler apartment, not to say things said need not have been said, put often I am passive aggressive instead of assertive, then on occasions I am assertive, in the case of the recent past I was passive aggressive, because I over heated and called myself being humble suffering in silence until I could not handle anymore and that was the case with Janet also for a lot of years.  But I know I am n being held down and regulated because you think I will become very aggressive towards people I found offensive to me.  But it is always better to be assertive even if it means hurting someone’s feeling on occasion as Chris Brown duly proved in his aggressive act.

 

To be honest I am tired of this tit for tat bullshit with the so-called movers and shakers.  I am made to look like a fool and am getting nowhere fast.

 

Finally, I think we put together a really nice studio for my nephew and his crew; they just have to schedule studio time into their lives and go to work.  We have some setting up to do, but I think they have all the essential components to do quality work

 

Message of the Day

 

A Sun-Pluto opposition on your birthday means you will be at odds on a regular basis with people in positions of power. But that’s okay. You need to be tested as you will soon be in a position of power yourself.

Try not to spread yourself too thin today. You may think you can do it all but your body and your brain will regret it if you push yourself too hard. Focus only on what needs to be done — leave the rest for another day.

Chris Needs a Lawyer & Happy “B” Day Rihanna

Chris Needs a Lawyer & Happy “B” Day Rihanna

 

Happy Birthday Rihanna, I hate to say it but when Chris Brown beat you up you may have hit the Jackpot.  Chris Brown was a fool and is in camp stupid, he does not need a Publicist or someone for Damage Control unless he is a lawyer because he needs a lawyer and fast.  He does not need a criminal lawyer he needs to handle his civil lawsuit.  In criminal court it takes beyond a reasonable doubt to find him guilty, which may be hard to prove without an eyewitness, to crazy charges like attempted murder.

 

Chris Brown’s biggest nightmare will come in the form of a civil lawsuit whereby I predict he will be found guilty of assault and battery and not in criminal court for attempted murder due to the threat of killing her prior to committing battery and not attempted murder.  In civil court it takes a preponderance of evidence which is anything over 50% guilty in the jury pool. 

 

Now I am not a lawyer and as a paralegal I am aware of UPL (Unauthorized Practice of Law) so the best I can do is tell Chris he needs a lawyer, but cannot give him legal advice.  I mean Rihanna does not look like the picture of her on web anymore, how I know please do not ask but I do know for certain.  But it is undeniable that Chris Brown went way out of bounds and cause Rihanna damages and the only real damage control is probably an out of court settlement and that takes a lawyer and his professional advice.

 

Camp Rihanna is not stupid and knows that Brown’s career will benefit both parties in an out of court settlement that can prevent a criminal case and the bad publicity that will come with it.  I think Chris Brown’s only way out is an out of court settlement with Camp Rihanna.  Perhaps now a secret insurance policy might surface to settle this matter.  Happy Birthday Rihanna for walking away from an abusive relationship with millions and a few bruises that African SHEA butter will heal. 

 

Janet Jackson ends Professional Ties with Jermaine Dupri.

 

Regardless she should recover damages in civil court, from show cancellations to promotional outings missed, plus she was beat up badly, she will do well and get paid for getting out of a bad situation.  Now if Chris settles out of court, they can never have a relationship again, but she can publicly accept his apology and wish him well and not help with the investigation due to attorney advice and get a restraining order for a few years and make him pay for her bodyguard of her choice if within a certain distance say at a Grammy event or another award show.

 

 

The Ebony Latest Gossip Winds

ebony-obamassm1The Ebony Latest Gossip Winds

 

Two strikes on the Ebony top 10 couples.  Chris Brown just beat down (Physically Assaulted) Rihanna and Janet dumped Jermaine Dupri over management problems so they say.  Tabloid love affairs are for publicity.  Now that Janet left Def Jam and JD got fired, we will see just how much love is involved.  I mean really and not for record company publicity!  I use to respect Ebony as a real magazine it is merely another tabloid. Now the question is does Rihanna have grounds for a civil suit against Christ Brown and her record company for putting her in this dangerous situation.  She just might have a huge pay day for the damages to her and her career and losses due to the assault.  It is said they told her to date him for publicity even after they broke up some two weeks ago.

 

 

I had to ask Janet what did Jermaine do to earn the honor, take her to a shoot out in Atlanta and vomit on her for his birthday and take a bunch of photos getting drunk, screwing up her tour.  Playing both sides against the middle with his negative blogs through his blogging network?  I could go on with this list from fake marriages to lust at first sight; I could have accepted this from Rolling Stone or the New York Post, but Ebony Magazine-Tabloid?  How do you even mention these dysfunctional relationships in the same Magazine as the Obama couple on the cover?  Is that all President Obama is to you is an entertainer?  You are an epitome of black people and the black community?  I use to think so, but not anymore.  Shame on Ebony!
