My “Things to Do Before I Turn 40” Bucket List

Hello everyone that reads this blog.  Sorry I have been lax on posting on here, so many things have been going on that it’s been hard to sit down and blog but now I am back and going to try to keep up with my 2-3 posts a day routine.  Down to what this entry is about, my “Before I Turn 40” Bucket List.  What does this have to do with pop culture?  Most of the stuff on this is pop culture-related.

  • Show off my knowledge of pop culture on a game show (I thought this would be accomplished by the audition I went to for Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? “Movie Week” but I just got an email today saying I have not been selected to be in the contestants pool.  Prehaps next year.)
  • Get one of my photos published in a national publication.
  • Attend a taping of The Ellen Degeneres Show.
  • Get backstage access and a photo pass to a concert of No Doubt, Fun., Lady Gaga, or Pitbull
  • Meet Neil Patrick Harris
  • My blog winning some award.
  • One of the videos that I create go viral.
  • Direct a music video.

 

Spotlight on Pitbull

I admit, when Pitbull first came on the scene in 2004, I didn’t pay attention to him because I am not really big on rap. Then last year when he did the rap on Enrique Iglesias’ single “I Like It” and I got to see that Pitbull was very interesting.

This 30 year-old Cuban-American has definite Latin heat. so much so, he’s on fire.  He also appeared with Jennifer Lopez on her single “On the Floor”.

When he released his own single, “Give Me Everything” with Ne-yo, Nayer, and Afrojack, I was definitely paying attention.  The song is upbeat and an appropriate anthem.

He is really sexy when he takes off his sunglasses and looks at the camera with talking sideways out of his mouth.  His newest single, “Rain Over Me” featuring Marc Anthony,  was just released Friday and already has over 12 million views on You Tube.
