Hollywood’s top earning couples

What happens when you marry an $82 million hip-hop brand and an $80 million R&B empire? You get Hollywood’s best-paid power couple.

Thanks to a monster year filled with music, movies, fashion and endorsement deals, Jay-Z and his new bride, Beyoncé Knowles, collectively raked in $162 million between June 1, 2007 and June 1, 2008. The jaw-dropping sum garners them bragging rights atop our first annual ranking of Hollywood’s Top-Earning Couples, a list that also includes A-list pairings Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman, David and Victoria Beckam,Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, among others.

“Naturally, powerful people tend to gravitate toward other powerful people,” explains clinical psychologist and celebrity researcher Jim Houran, for reasons that range from proximity (stars hang around other stars) to familiarity (people are attracted, at least initially, to others like them) to clearer expectations (shared priorities make it easier for celebrities to relate). No matter how they get together, the results are good for the bottom line.

Take Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. They hauled in some $85 million over the past year, making them No. 2 on our list. Though Jada’s resume continues to grow, Will’s the family breadwinner. He raked in $80 million in the year ending June 2008, thanks to another set of top-performing blockbusters: I Am Legend, The Pursuit of Happyness and this past summer’s Hancock. Together the flicks banked $1.2 billion at the worldwide box office, making him Hollywood’s most bankable star.

Jada pulled in $5 million during the same 12-month period, thanks to roles as an actress (The Women), producer (The Human Contract) and businesswoman (a stake in beauty line Carol’s Daughter).

The next comes  David and Victoria Beckham. Conquering fans on both sides of the Atlantic, the power couple brought in $58 million over the year-long period.

Becks’ share was $50 million, proving the much-covered move to America has paid off for the British soccer star. Though his Los Angeles Galaxy salary was $5.5 million, the sum more than doubled when his cut of the team’s ticket, merchandise and sponsorship revenues were factored in. He also pulled down a cool $35 million from lucrative endorsement deals with Motorola , Coty and Pepsi Co.

Dutch couple pays $204 for samosas

default2

A Dutch couple on a visit to the eastern Indian state of Bihar paid 10,000 rupees ($204) for four samosas, a spicy deep-fried snack that usually doesn’t cost more than a few rupees, a newspaper reported on Monday.

After the tourists ate the snacks, a stall owner at the Sonepur cattle fair last week told them his “special” samosas cost more because they were made of herbs and had aphrodisiac qualities .

After an argument, the couple paid the shopkeeper. But they later complained to a policeman.

Police forced the shopkeeper to return the change — 9,990 rupees

Thats INDIA n Indians wont miss any oppurtunity

TOP 10 UGLIEST BUILDINGS OF THE WORLD

  • Boston City Hall; Boston, Massachusetts
  • Montparnasse Tower; Paris, France
  • LuckyShoe Monument; Tuuri, Finland
  • Metropolitan Cathedral; Liverpool, England
  • Torres de Colon; Madrid, Spain
  • Liechtenstein Museum of Fine Arts; Vaduz, Liechtenstein
  • Scottish Parliament Building
  • Birmingham Central Library; Birmingham, England
  • Peter the Great Statue; Moscow, Russia

1.It was hip for it’s time, this concrete structure now gets routinely criticized for its dreary facade and incongruity with the rest of the city’s more genteel architecture. Luckily, it’s very close to more aesthetically pleasing attractions.
2.It’s almost universally agreed that this ominous stick is a blight on the landscape of the world’s most stunning city, its detractors admit that there is one very good reason to take in the view from the building’s observation deck: it’s the only place you can go to get a view of the city without it.
3.It may be over-the-top, but there is something to be said for the giant, golden horseshoe that looms over Finland’s second-largest shopping center. The shoe, and, in fact, the entire town in which it is situated, is said to bring good luck.

4.The people who work here must be sick of the space capsule jokes. Even those who find the building’s shell a bit “spacey,” have to admit the circular interior is pretty spectacular. 5. Port Authority Bus Terminal; New York City, New York

5.Those who pass by this iron monstrosity might be tempted to ask about a completion date, but alas, this is the finished product.

6.Like a set of giant salt-and-pepper shakers, these matching towers loom over the city to the dissatisfaction of many area residents. The buildings are also known as “El Enchufe” or “The Plug” for the plug-like structure that holds them together.

7.Some feel the building’s minimalist box design is a triumph, others say it’s an eyesore.
8. Edinburgh, ScotlandStone, oak, and bamboo are part of the make-up of the Scottish Parliament, a building that is the subject of much debate.

9.One look and it’s easy to see how this genre of architecture came to be known as the “Brutalist” style. Not surprisingly, the issue of its possible demolition has been looming for years.

10.Some 15 stories high, the larger-than-life monument was designed by controversial artist, Zurab K. Tsereteli, whose statue of Christopher Columbus was repeatedly rejected by the United States.

If U are a lovable person you wont miss this

The True Meaning of LOVE – A Touching Story

g u r l z - g r o u p

My husband is an Engineer by profession, I love him for his steady nature, and I love the warm feeling when I lean against his broad shoulders. Three years of courtship and now, two years into marriage, I would have to admit, that I am getting tired of it. The reasons of me loving him before, has now transformed into the cause of all my restlessness. . . I am a sentimental woman and extremely sensitive when it comes to a relationship and my feelings, I yearn for the romantic moments, like a little girl yearning for candy. My husband, is my complete opposite, his lack of sensitivity, and the inability of bringing romantic moments into our marriage has disheartened me about love. One day, I finally decided to tell him my decision, that I wanted a divorce.


“Why?” he asked, shocked. “I am tired, there are no reasons for everything in the world!” I answered. He kept silent the whole night, seems to be in deep thought with a lighted cigarette at all times

My feeling of disappointment only increased, here was a man who can’t even express his predicament, what else can I hope from him? And finally he asked me:” What can I do to change your mind?” Somebody said it right, it’s hard to change a person’s personality, and I guess, I have started losing faith in him.

Looking deep into his eyes I slowly answered : “Here is the question, if you can answer and convince my heart, I will change my mind, Let’s say, I want a flower located on the face of a mountain cliff, and we both are sure that picking the flower will cause your death, will you do it for me?” He said :” I will give you your answer tomorrow…. ” My hopes just sank by listening to his response.


I woke up the next morning to find him gone, and saw a piece of paper with his scratchy handwriting, underneath a milk glass, on the dining table near the front door, that goes….


My dear, “I would not pick that flower for you, but please allow me to explain the reasons further..” This first line was already breaking my heart. I continued reading. “When you use the computer you always mess up the Software programs, and you cry in front of the screen, I have to save my fingers so that I can help to restore the programs.

You always leave the house keys behind, thus I have to save my legs to rush home to open the door for you. You love traveling but always lose your way in a new city, I have to save my eyes to show you the way.

You always have the cramps whenever your “good friend” approaches every month, I have to save my palms so that I can calm the cramps in your tummy. You like to stay indoors, and I worry that you will be infected by infantile autism. I have to save my mouth to tell you jokes and stories to cure your boredom.


You always stare at the computer, and that will do nothing good for your eyes, I have to save my eyes so that when we grow old, I can help to clip your nails,and help to remove those annoying white hairs. So I can also hold your hand while strolling down the beach, as you enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful sand… and tell you the colour of flowers, just like the color of the glow on your young face…

Thus, my dear, unless I am sure that there is someone who loves you more than I do… I could not pick that flower yet, and die.. ” My tears fell on the letter, and blurred the ink of his handwriting. …. and as I continue on reading…


g u r l z - g r o u p


“Now, that you have finished reading my answer, if you are satisfied, please open the front door for I am standing outside bringing your favorite bread and fresh milk…



I rush to pull open the door, and saw his anxious face, clutching tightly with his hands, the milk bottle and loaf of bread…… Now I am very sure that no one will ever love me as much as he does, and I have decided to leave the flower alone…

That’s life, and love. When one is surrounded by love, the feeling of excitement fades away, and one tends to ignore the true love that lies in between the peace and dullness.


Love shows up in all forms, even very small and cheeky forms, it has never been a model, it could be the most dull and boring form.. . flowers, and romantic moments are only used and appear on the surface of the relationship. Under all this, the pillar of true love stands… and that’s our life… Love, not words win arguments

Ambanizzzz houssssse

Mukesh Ambani becomes the richest Indian reports by forbes….His net worth is 20.8 billion…his houz is one of the finest and luxurious….could be the next wonder…

a1

Nine elevators dot the lobby floor: Two are designated for parking areas,  three for guest quarters, two for the Ambani family residences and two for service.  The lobby opens to numerous lounges, reception areas and powder rooms.  Dual stairways lead from the lobby floor down to the ballroom,  which is designed in an open layout with a two-story roof.
a2

The most striking features of the Antilla ballroom are the crystal chandeliers that will take up approximately 80% of the ceiling. The silver stairways lead to a central landing, behind which two retractable doors can open to display works of art. There is also a stage for entertainment or speeches, with a projection screen behind it. A kitchen, about the same size as the ballroom itself, can service hundreds of guests.

a3

One of Antilla’s key design themes is the mix of lavish features seen in worldwide homes and elements that are distinctly Indian.The Gingko-leaf sink designs are a good example. Native to India,   the leaves in the sinks are shaped in such a way that their stems guide water into the bowl created by the basket of the leaf.

O God is this house a place called heaven!!!!!!!!!
