Controversy over 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards Artist of the Year Winner

By Business, Celebrity, Editorials, News No Comments

Megan thee Stallion was listed in the category for a reason, but I personally think that Lil Baby should’ve taken that award home. Megan works hard and is amazing at what she does, but an award such as ‘Artist of the Year’ has to be given to an artist with major numbers behind them. 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards

Significance of Verzuz TV

By Business, Celebrity, Editorials, News No Comments

Between the 1980’s and early 2000’s artists actually got together and battled out to see who was the best. That competitive spirit has been somewhat fractured by today’s Soundcloud rap era, in which an artist doesn’t necessarily need to display his or her ability to rap in order to remain relevant.

By Barber industry, Business, News No Comments

We have lost 100% of our source of income and we need relief now. The real concern of these customer complaints will get louder!

The State and Federal resources, information, contributions and relief are too broad and are tailored to employee-based businesses, leaving the majority of the self-employed barber/stylists & owners in the dark, with minimum or no relief.

Do Celebrities Really Rock the Vote?

By Advertisement, Celebrity, Polls No Comments

With the 2016 Presidential election just around the corner, one of the most publicized elections in the history of the U.S., many people have made firm stands on who their candidate is, and celebrities are no different.
It’s no secret that celebrities and members of the entertainment field hold a great amount of influence in this country and across the globe, and often times can start a trend or motivate people to get into a cause just by saying they (the celebrity) endorse it. But how does that work for government? Does a celebrity endorsement really change peoples perception of a candidate and make them lean one way or the other?
In 2008, Oprah gave a verbal endorsement of Barack Obama as President, and according to a Northwestern University and University of Maryland study found that more than 1 million votes went President Obama’s way just because of Oprah’s endorsement.
But that’s the power of Oprah. Do other celebs hold the same power? Most political analysts think not. In a recent article from Fox News, Larry Sabato, the director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, said that there is not such an impact from a single celebrity, or group of celebrities, during this election. Furthermore, many analysts believe that a celebrity endorsement of a candidate might actual harm their public favor and decrease their fan base. Still, it is funny to see the amount of celebrities stating their moving to Canada if Trump wins. Nonetheless, it has been a very public race, and it will be interesting to see what the outcome is come Tuesday night.

Big Business for Barbers

By Barber industry, Business No Comments

In today’s society, jobs are hard to come by, and careers are almost going out of style. One thing that’s not going out of style, however, is peoples desire to look good and be, well, stylish.
For that reason alone, it should be no surprise that one of the industry’s currently thriving is the world of beauty and beauty care: barber shops, salon, personal grooming and styling products. These stores, products and services are in high demand, and in all likelihood will continue to be so.
In January of this year, an article was published on indicating the vast amount of money the men’s grooming industry was set to bring in this year, estimating it at over $21 billion. In September, released analytics on the barber industry in the U.S. There are over 400 thousand barbers in the U.S., bringing it a combined total of $1.8 million.
With statistics like that, it’s easy to see that the world of beauty care is not limited to women alone, and is a thriving, booming and growing industry, and one that is surely to be that way for years to come.
