What is the meaning of you have had your shelves in the song We are the champions?

There is no line "you have had your shelves" in the song "We Are The Champions" by Queen. You are probably referring to the line "I've had my share of sand kicked in my face, but I've come through". The line means that even though the singer has faced an amount of tribulations comparable to most people, he has overcome them, on the way to becoming a champion.
I've paid my dues -
Time after time -
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime -
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face -
But I've come through

We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end -
We are the champions -
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions - of the world -

I've taken my bows
And my curtain calls -
You brought me fame and fortuen and everything that goes with it
-
I thank you all -

But it's been no bed of roses
No pleasure cruise -
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race -
And I ain't gonna lose -

We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end -
We are the champions -
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions - of the world -

Curtis James Jackson III (born July 6, 1976),[1] better known by his stage name 50 Cent, is an American rapper. He rose to fame with the release of his albums Get Rich or Die Tryin' (2003) and The Massacre (2005). Both albums achieved multi-platinum success, selling more than twenty-one million copies combined.[2]

Born in South Jamaica, Queens, 50 Cent began drug dealing at the age of twelve during the 1980s crack epidemic.[3] After leaving drug dealing to pursue a rap career, he was shot at and struck by nine bullets during an incident in 2000. After releasing his album Guess Who's Back? in 2002, 50 Cent was discovered by rapper Eminem and signed to Interscope Records. With the help of Eminem and Dr. Dre-who produced his first major commercial successes-he became one of the world's highest selling rappers. In 2003, he founded the record label G-Unit Records, which signed several successful rappers such as Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, and Tony Yayo.

50 Cent has engaged in feuds with other rappers including Ja Rule, The Game, Cam'ron, Fat Joe, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross. He has also pursued an acting career, appearing in the semi-autobiographical film Get Rich or Die Tryin' in 2005, the Iraq War film Home of the Brave in 2006, and Righteous Kill in 2008

What type of music does Queen the music band play?

Well, it depends on the time schedule: in their early beginning they played heavy metal (as many say), though shortly after they've altered their sound to, plain and simple, rock music.

What are the special effects used in bohemian rhapsody?

Guitarist Brian May overdubbed the sound of his guitar to make it sound as if more than one guitar was playing at the same time towards the end and also the voices in the operatic bit in the middle are overdubbed to give operatic effect. Apart from that, there were no effects used that I can think of. Part the reason why the song is such a master piece :)

Britney Spears - The 21st Century's Queen of Pop.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

. Madonna is the queen of pop, and britney and gaga fall as princesses.

Janet Jackson is Queen of Pop because she has talent on Madonna. Madonna sold more records indeed, but when it comes down to raw talent, and performance worthy artist-ship, Janet has the musical edge over Madonna. Madonna is a great artist but she's a product artist; Janet actually has the talent that propelled her to stardom-sorry people. Britney Spears is the reigning Princess of Pop indeed-sorry Lady GaGa; she just has the shock factor. Prince is music royalty as well but he has multiple musical genres so he's just a music sovereign much like Sade is. Prince of pop would most likely be Justin Timberlake, but if Justin Beiber can prove his dominance overtime in this illustrious genre this could change.

Janet is the Queen of Pop sorry; I do know of Madonna's sales record and it's superior to Janet's. But considering talent, artistry, ability to perform, and writing ability Janet has the helm. We can accept that or not but guess what; it's all true.

Both are hold the Queen of pop status; both Janet and Madonna. This is better than fighting on who is the QOP. Both of them made huge strides in the genera of pop. So it's better to say that both of these talented ladies are the QOP.

______________________________________________________________________

Janet & Madonna no longer hold the crown to Queen of Pop anymore. Whoever did back in the 90s is up to you guys, but Britney is without a doubt the Queen of the thousands, as Billboard, MTV, and loads of other stars state her as that. Janet & Madonna haven't done enough or hardly anything really to be rightfully Queen of the 21st century. Britney on the other hand has been unstoppable throughout the thousands. Sales have been through the roof, she's had amazing performances, mostly at VMA's that have gone down as iconic moments of all time at the VMAs. MTV & Teen Choice even admit it themselves that Britney shaped VMA & TCA into what it is now. She's defined pop music, and modern day pop culture. She's a massive trendsetter, music wise. Britney's Blackout was ahead of its time. It was pure electro pop, which came out in 07. Britney is Queen.
