    The event launch of a perfume im memory of pop icon Michael Jackson caused troubles as his father distanced himself from a Frenchman behind the deal and a lawsuit disputed their rights. Joe Jackson signed a contract with French fragrance enterpreneur Franck Rouas earlier this year to launch eau de parfums “Jackson’s Tribute” for women.

    The scents were due to be presented to the world at a conference Thursday in a night club at the Caesars Palace Hotel Casino in Las Vegas with socialite Paris Hilton and several Jackson family members. However, the event descended into chaos when Joe Jackson backed briefly by his daughter LaToya made it clear he wanted to avoid any physical contact wth Rouas, head of the perfume company Julian Rouas Paris.

    “ I don’t like the way he does things. But the intiative to creat the scents was mine and that plan goes ahead,” Joe Jackson said, adding that he did not know when the 50ml bottles would go on sale.

    Fergie was having the time of her life at a photo shot for her third Allure cover. Her gorgeous photographs showing her fierce side were taken by Norman Jean Roy. She will pose for the Allure July cover. During the interview Fergie opened up about her beauty and confirmed that she has never had plastic surgery. After performing on American Idol, many speculated she had a lot of work done, but not so.

    “I did two major drastic things, which is hair to the side—it was the first time—and the big neon lip. I wanted to try something different, and all of a sudden it was this big backlash. People were saying ‘It’s a fake Fergie.’ I heard about some ridiculous amount of money that I spent on my face, which I think is absolutely insane.” She said.

    Well Fergie looks great in these photos and whatever she did she looks amazingly beautiful.

    President Barack Obama has confirmed that he and his beautiful wife Michelle Obama don’t want more children. Although many of us are disappointed, it seems the Obamas have made up their minds. In an interview on “Good Morning America” with Robin Roberts, the President opened up his life as a father and said that he is really happy to be a father of two beautiful daughters. Obama also talked about why he thinks they will never have a son.

    “You know, you act as if this is a dream of mine. This really isn’t. As Michelle points out, I did not carry 10 pounds in my belly. I think Michelle’s general view is, we’re done.’’ he told Robin Roberts.

    Maybe after some few years they might reconsider their decision. It would really be a great privilege to hear President Obama has a son. I thought every man always want a son.

    Beyonce admits being `uncomfortable’ among people

    15. June 2011

    The super sexy Beyonce Knowles admitted that she gets uncomfortable among people. The singer whose new album is currently online told the Dazed & Confused that she more comfortable performing on stage than in a large group of people.

    “ I get uncomfortable when I’m not performing on the stage or on a photo shoot and have too many people looking at me expecting a performance. It makes me kind of shut down and become shy. I’m better of a one on one conversation. I do become shy and a bit intimidated when it’s a large group of people, I definitely retreat. At a big dinner I just hope that no one expects anything from me. I wish I’d disappear.’’ She said.

    This is really ironic and truly the opposite of the Beyonce I know. If you watch Beyonce music videos mostly the latest ` who run the world’ hit single, it portrays she is very comfortable in large group of people.

    Facebook compelled to go public by 2012

    15. June 2011

    facebook

    If there is one thing notable about Facebook, besides being the most popular social networking site on the internet, is based on the fact that its founder, Mark Zuckerberg, became a billionaire from a nobody in a miniscule time period of 4 years. The main reason for this sudden explosion of wealth was due the financial backing, the company had from a series of venture capital investments from entities ranging from Accel partners to Goldman Sachs. But its seems that Facebook’s financial destiny is worth much more than its current $50 billion dollar valuation, as the company spokesman was quoted to say that the company plans to release its IPO next year.

    This caught many investors off guard, as Zuckerberg had repeatedly told the media that they have no plans to go public, anytime in the near future. But nevertheless the decision for the IPO is not in the hands of the company’s management thanks to the Securities and exchange commission ’500 clause’ act of 1934. The act legally forces a private company in the US to release its financial information to the securities and exchange commission on a quarterly basis , if it has 500 investors or more, and since Facebook is expected to have its 500th investor by the end of the year, it will be indirectly obligated to go public next year.

    But even though Zuckerberg is still not very comfortable with the idea, an initial public offering will ensure that the company will be worth at least $100 billion, which is more than twice its current valuation. This new valuation will make Facebook come at par with mega US corporations like Apple and Microsoft, and make it bigger than Cisco and HP in terms of market capitalization. This means that Mark Zuckerberg, who currently owns a 24% stake in the company, would be worth over $25 billion dollars, provided his stake is not diluted from the public offering. Besides making its founders and investors filthy rich, the employees can finally be at peace as they will be able to sell and liquidate their stake without much hurdles, not to mention the fat pay raise they are bound to get in their compensation package.

    But the fact that Facebook has had a growth rate of 100000%+ since its inception is a little disturbing, considering that such a increase in stock value can only be rivaled by a financial bubble, or the dot com bubble to be more precise. In spite of all the subtle red flags, it is still to premature to jump to any conclusions, so as investors, in order to avoid a dot com like disaster, all we have to do is keep our eyes and ears open from now onwards.
