Signs You May be Sleeping With a Jerk Who Will Probably Cheat On You

Sunday, April 20th, 2014

Young couple in bed, looking away from each otherBy: Krystle Crossman – There are signs that men can exhibit in bed that may give you a glimpse into whether they are going to be someone who cheats on your or not. They are not overly obvious signs but they are little cues that could tell you that you are with someone who may stray. A study was conducted at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, which asked 123 couples that were married about narcissism in the bedroom. They would survey they every six months for the first four years of their marriage and found that a person was more likely to cheat within those first four years if they displayed traits of s*xual narcissism. Here are the four biggest indicators:

1. Missing s*xual empathy: Partners who don’t seem to care about what their partner wants or needs in bed is an example of s*xual empathy. They are usually the ones that do not think twice about getting 0ral s*x but refuse to reciprocate. They often finish and then do not care if their partner is satisfied or not. Once they are done, they are done.

2. Entitlement: This partner is the one who believes that even if you are not in the mood and they are things are still going to happen. They think that they should get it whenever they want whether their partner wants to or not.

3. Arrogance of skills: When a partner thinks that they are God’s gift to everyone in bed they may be someone who wants to exploit that to other people, not just their partner.

4. S*xual exploitation: When a partner thinks that they can make you do whatever they want in bed, this is displaying a narcissistic s*xual trait. They think that they can manipulate you into doing anything that they want.

Singer Joe Accuses R. Kelly of Sabotaging His Music Career

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

joe-singer-jemblog-dot-comAccording to, R&B singer Joe is alleging that R. Kelly attempted to sabotage his career. Joe provided competition for R. Kelly around 2000 when his album, My Name is Joe, sold more than three million copies and reached the #2 spot on the Billboard top 200 list. During that same year, Joe was nominated for Grammy’s for Best Male R&B Performance as well as Best R&B Album. R. Kelly most likely felt competition from Joe due to the fact that he was also nominated for the same awards, and while his album reached the #1 spot on the Billboard 200, Joe’s position as #2 was much closer than any male R&B artist had been to taking over his position atop the music charts.

A recent interview with DJ Vlad is where Joe revealed that he received information from friends of his in the industry that R. Kelly demanded that various program directors stop playing Joe’s music in attempt to stifle the competition from threatening his status as the king of R&B during that time. R. Kelly threatened that he would never visit the programs again if they did not comply with his demand. Joe stated to DJ Vlad that he is confident the allegations are true and that he believes that no one man has the power to make an music outlet or venue not play a particular artists music simply because they are a competitor for air time and album sales.

Joe did state during the interview that he does respect R. Kelly who is currently enjoying some mild success from his most recent album, Chocolate Factory. Considering the legal trouble R. Kelly has faced over the years for allegedly sleeping with underage girls, Joe’s statement implies that he maintains some level of respect for R. Kelly on a professional level.

From Homeless Dreamer To Billionaire Tequila And Beauty Tycoon: The Inspiring Rags to Riches Story of John Paul DeJoria

Thursday, April 10th, 2014


In 1980, when John Paul DeJoria founded John Paul Mitchell Systems he was homeless. Well, technically he was living in an old Rolls Royce along L.A’s Sunset Strip. He wasn’t exactly sleeping under a bridge or in an alley somewhere. DeJoria and cofounder Paul Mitchell scraped together $700 and set out to sell their shampoo door-to-door. Today, Paul Mitchell is sold in more than 150,000 beauty salons in 87 countries and is a billion dollar business but, it is only part of how DeJoria came to be worth an estimated $4.2 billion dollars. This is his inspiring story.

John Paul DeJoria was born on April 13, 1944 in the Echo Park area of Los Angeles to an Italian immigrant father and a Greek immigrant mother. The neighborhood he grew up in was largely European, Asian, and Hispanic at the time and DeJoria wasn’t aware how poor his family was because there was no one and nothing to compare his upbringing to. When he was two years old his parents divorced. To help his mother make ends meet he started selling Christmas cards door-to-door when he was nine years old. By the time we has 11, he had a paper route he delivered for before he went to school. After graduating from high school when he was 17, DeJoria joined the Navy.

DeJoria was discharged from the Navy in 1964, and lacking the money to go to college, he went to work at a number of odd jobs. He pumped gas, repaired bicycles, worked as a janitor, sold photocopiers, and life insurance. Eventually he ended up selling Collier’s Encyclopedias door to door. It was tough to have so many doors slammed in his face, but DeJoria had to be as enthusiastic at door 15 as he was at door one. The average lifespan of a door-to-door encyclopedia salesman was three days. He worked for Collier’s for three years. A friend of his who was an employment counselor suggested he get into the beauty industry – cautioning him that it didn’t pay well at first, but the was no end to how far he could take it. Well, DeJoria certainly proved that right!

In 1971 DeJoria went to work as a salesman for the beauty company Redken. He was paid $600 a month and within 18 months was running two divisions – chain salons and beauty schools. He had two secretaries and four people working for directly him, but he didn’t do the kiss-butt socializing that the Redken higher ups of the era wanted. So, in 1975 they fired him, saying he wasn’t their type of manager.

DeJoria moved on to Fermodyl Hair Care where he trained their management and sales teams on how to sell products effectively. In the year he was there, the company’s sales rose 50%, but again the corporate higher-ups didn’t think he fit in. Next, John Paul went to work for another hair care company, The Institute of Trichology where he was paid $3,000 a month plus six percent of all new business he brought in. After one year they fired him because he was making more money than the owner.

Well, as you can imagine, when you are repeatedly fired from not one, not two, but three different jobs, it would make you want to be your own manager. As DeJoria has said, even being fired from these three companies was a blessing because he was able to learn about sales, marketing, and manufacturing.

In 1980, DeJoria approached his friend Paul Mitchell, who, although one of the most highly regarded hairstylists in the country, was struggling. He suggested the two go into business together. They decided to create products for professional stylist that would save them time. Before John Paul Mitchell Systems, the only salon grade shampoos had to be applied multiple times in one hair washing to be effective. DeJoria and Mitchell created a single-application shampoo and a leave-in conditioner that improved blow outs for clients.

In their original plan, Mitchell and DeJoria would each own 30% of the company and an investor with a $500,000 stake would own 40%. But that investor changed his mind and a new one never materialized. Everything was falling apart. Mitchell was about to lose everything and DeJoria’s marriage was failing. He gave his wife everything and moved out. Too proud to tell his friends he had only a few hundred dollars to his name, he lived in his car and started the business with his last $700.

One morning while DeJoria was living in his car, he woke up to actress Joanna Pettet knocking on his car window. The two knew each other casually and Joanna was shocked to see her friend essentially homeless. She offered him a room in her house for free for two months, but after that he’d have to pay rent. This gave DeJoria what he needed to get back on his feet while starting his company. He had business cards made that said John Paul Mitchell Systems with Pettet’s phone number on them.

As you can imagine, it was rough going at first. According to DeJoria, the business should have declared bankruptcy “at least 50 times in that first year alone”. But the duo remained undeterred. The spent the first two years building the product line and getting salons signed up to carry their product. Have you ever wondered why their bottles are with designed in bland black and white color? Because they couldn’t afford colored ink.

But their hard work and determination eventually paid off. After two years of pounding the pavement and begging salons for shelf space, John Paul Mitchell Systems had earned nearly $1 million. From there the company grew. By the fifth year, the company was earning over $10 million. By year 10, John Paul Mitchell Systems was bringing in $100 million. In 1999, after just under 20 years in business, the company was earning $600 million per year. In 2013, the company earned an estimated $900 million.

Paul Mitchell died of pancreatic cancer in 1989, leaving DeJoria to run the company. That same year, DeJoria launched a new company called the Patron Spirits Co. Martin Crowley, an architect friend of DeJoria’s had found a hand-blown glass bottle and said to him: “I could design a label for this. Want to make a smoother tequila and go into business?” DeJoria decided to provide the backing for the first 12,000 bottles of tequila made from expensive blue agave. DeJoria priced his new “Patron” tequila at $37 per bottle.

DeJoria’s friends and business contacts helped him promote Patron. Clint Eastwood put it in “In the Line of Fire”, Wolfgang Puck turned his friends onto it, and it was given away free at Paul Mitchell events. Today, Patron is the world’s number one ultra-premium tequila and John Paul DeJoria still owns about 70% of the company.

Between the two seemingly miss-matched brands, John Paul Dejoria is worth $4.2 billion. Not bad for a guy who used to be homeless. The life of John Paul DeJoria is a classic rags to riches story of a man who forged ahead even when times were tough and ended up amassing an absolutely astonishing fortune.

Despite her mother’s objections, Kandi Burruss marries Todd Tucker

Saturday, April 5th, 2014

Kandi Burruss, the Real Housewife that also sells sexx toys, is getting married. After a sometimes awkward path toward matrimony, the 37-year old is finding herself to be the new wife of boyfriend Todd Tucker. Tucker is one of the producers on the show, and the two are going to get married in front of family and friends.

The show made the announcement on its website this weekend and this is a big development for a couple that has had some awkward moments due to their financial imbalance. Kandi makes a great deal more money than Todd and this has been a subject of contention for those who wonder if its OK for a woman to make more money than her man. But we say that it’s fine, especially if the couple is able to find happiness.

Burruss is a Grammy award winning singer and songwriter and was formerly a member of the hot R&B group, Xscape. Burruss’ mother isn’t too happy about the couple’s relationship and has repeatedly shown her disappointment during the show. She feels that Tucker is an opportunist who is taking advantage of her daughter. But the two aren’t paying attention to Kandi’s mother and are instead doing what’s best for themselves.

This begs the question of how to deal with relationships where the man makes more than the woman. Jet Magazine Entertainment Editor S. Tia Brown and Financial scholar Dr. Boyce Watkins discuss Kandi and Todd’s financial lovemaking in the video below. It’s an informative way to understand this relationship and others just like it:

Facebook Friends Robbed Friend While She Was On Vacation

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

A California man found a reason to “Like” a Facebook friend’s status update about being away on vacation by inviting his pals to help break into her home, cops said. Michael Batson, 21, even text messaged the woman, Stacey Grant, and asked about her trip after she posted a note on the social media site that she was with her family in Las Vegas, Nev. But hours later, cops called Grant to tell her they arrested Batson and two others — Phillip McKnight, 32, and Tyrone Gibson, 20 — as they loaded property from the woman’s Fontana home into a U-Haul truck parked outside.

It was hurtful,” Grant told KNBC-TV. “My whole room was trashed. There were clothes everywhere. My bed was gone.” Officers sitting on a stakeout nearby spotted the three men break into the Windcrest Drive home and patiently watched as they unloaded the stolen loot, which included flat screen televisions and furniture. The trio was arrested at the scene and police called Grant’s family, who cut their vacation short to head home right away. The suspects were booked on charges that include burglary, possession of stolen property and conspiracy.

Martha Guzman-Hurtado, a spokeswoman for the Fontana Police Department, told the news station that the arrests prove people should think about what they post online. HELLO!!! “It serves as a reminder to be very careful of what you post on social media sites,” she said.
