thaliaepura

Do you know that series called “73 questions with *insert celebrity name here*” that Vogue has on its YouTube channel? Well, ePura has just released a video with a very similar concept, where they ask Thalia 25 questions during a quick break as she’s working on a secret project (hmmm, I wonder what all that is about and when exactly was this recorded).

Anyway, back to the video, I feel like translating it so that more people can enjoy it, cause it’s pretty cool. So, here it goes!

I have to say I enjoyed this a lot (which is also why I decided to post it here), it was fun to watch Thalia answer all these questions while also walking from room to room, jumping on the bed, getting in the bathtub! And it’s also been a great way of learning new things about her! So thanks ePura & Thalia for making this video!

Thalia’s Latina Love Tour is pure dynamite!

thalialatina

Latina Love Tour debuted last night, with a sold-out show at the State Theater in New Brunswick, New Jersey. I can’t believe it’s already been three years since I wrote about the first night of VIVA! Tour but I can tell you this: Thalia is back with a show that’s even more explosive, more full of energy and life, that will keep you dancing song after song!

The setlist included the smashing hit “Desde esa noche”, upbeat songs like “Frutas”, “Tiki Tiki Ta”,  “Todo”, “La movidita”, “De ti”, the “Vuelveme a Querer” remix and the electric “Más”. Classics like “Amor a la Mexicana”, “Piel Morena”, the novelas medley (“Rosalinda / Marimar / Maria la del Barrio”), “No me enseñaste” couldn’t miss either, while bachata fans got a special treat with “Te perdiste mi amor” and “No, no, no”.

Here are my highlights after I’ve watched a few videos on Youtube, with many thanks to the good soul Mercia Silva who recorded and posted them for us to enjoy (you can check out her channel for more).

  • The opening, because of the song selection (I wish she’d sing “Noches sin luna” though…), loved what was going on on the screen, and because those moments before the artist shows up on the stage are always so exciting!

  • “Gracias a Dios”, because I love the slow version at the beginning! Great vocals! And that little girl who got up on stage was so cute!

  • “Por lo que reste de vida”, I think this is the first time we got to hear it 100% live and it was worth the wait!

  • The sexy “La movidita”, I love love love it!

  • And the fun “De ti”, one of my faves from Latina, I’m even dancing here in my chair while writing this!

  • Aaaaand *drums* the best moment of the entire show and actually one of my favorite moments from Thalia’s entire career – “Más” where she actually plays a bedazzled electric guitar! My favorite thing about live performances is when an artist that doesn’t play any instrument suddenly starts playing one during a song. It’s priceless. And I’ve been waiting for her to do this for so long! *clap clap clap* Can we get a stripped performance of “Equviocada” now, with just her and an acoustic guitar? Yes, I always want “más” hehe

I could go on and on an post all the videos from the concert, I’ll just stick to adding a couple of special mentions:

  • “Equivocada” because this song is so special to me I just have to

  • and “Habitame Siempre”, because that song is so special to Thalia

Can we also talk about the fact that the people in the front row were inches away from her? And she got close to them every chance she got? Now that’s the perfect concert experience! However in my opinion it sucks when people take advantage of that and get up on stage uninvited during the performance, taking pictures, hugging her, but contrary to what the media has been saying these past few days, she handles these situations very gracefully and lovingly towards her fans.

At some point, she even jumped into the crowd as you can see in this video, but since everyone had to throw their phones to catch her, there isn’t any video footage after that😛

I absolutely loved what I’ve seen from the show and I can only imagine how amazing it must have been to be in that audience and just live it, hopefully Thalia will bring this tour to Europe too *fingers crossed*

I’m excited for the upcoming shows as I’m sure there will be more surprises and special guests. If you still haven’t got tickets, what are you waiting for? Check out Thalia’s Instagram for dates and tickets info!

Happy Birthday, Thalia!

Happy Birthday, Thalia!

I love you.

And I wish you all the happiness in the world.

May your heart always be singing,

and may your days always be full of color and smiles.

We live in a wonderful world,

but what’s even more wonderful…

is that you’re a part of it!

Feliz cumpleaños!

Russia dances to Desde esa noche

My dear friend Nastia aka @cuatachona aka Thalia’s no. 1 Russian fan😛 has just sent me this link and I got so excited about it I had to share it here!

The video was filmed a few weeks ago in a park in Moscow, during an outdoor zumba class. Can you guess the song? Well, sorry for spoiling it in the post title😀

Yes, it is “Desde esa noche”! In Moscow. Russia. Isn’t that cool?!

Thalia, you know what this means, right? Now you have to bring Latina Love Tour to Russia! (and then Romania hehe)

Thalia ft. Tito “El Bambino” – Vuélveme a Querer Urban Remix Video

Thalia released her new music video today and let me tell you something… I AM LIVING! Seriously, this video made my day week!

The “Vuélveme a Querer” Urban Remix was officially released not long ago and surprisingly, Thalia decided to shoot a music video for this version of the song too!

You know how the media usually introduces her as “Mexican singer, actress, author, radio host, fashion designer, entrepreneur *and the list goes on*? Well, they can now add *music video producer, director and editor* to that long list, thanks to this video.

If I still had some doubts about how this music video was created, Thalia made all of them disappear with these words she posted on her Instagram:

Ready to recreate the video? I did it, and edited it on my phone! (source)

Aaaah, I love her so much!

It’s almost as if she’s competing with Miranda Sings to see who is the most talented of them all 😂

Miranda Sings: I’m funny, I’m talented, I’m a singer, I’m an actress, I’m a dancer, I’m a model, I’m a craft maker, I can wash my hands (source)

Anyway, when VaQ was announced as the next single, people were like *Noooo, another ballad?? Worst single ever.* When the official music video was released, they were like “Ugh, this video is so unoriginal and boring, Thalia doesn’t even care about her career anymore* etc, etc.

And now we get this remix and this priceless music video. I mean… if THIS:

thaliaVaQremix4

and THIS:

thaliaVaQremix3

and THIS:

thaliaVaQremix2

PS: don’t pause the video, some of these images will give you nightmares

don’t just SCREAM creativity and originality, then I don’t know what does. Oh, isn’t this what you wanted? That’s too bad.

When I looked at the comments people posted on Youtube, I got sad for a second… but then I realized their reaction is the most hilarious thing ever! Some people are so upset about this album and are being soooo dramatic about it 😂 HOW COULD YOU DO THIS, THALIA?! HOW COULD YOU?!

thaliaVaQremix1

*Thalia, the ultimate troll*

Remember that time I wrote a post about how Thalia does whatever she wants to do? (click here if you haven’t read it). Well, nothing has changed. She wanted to do an unconventional music video for this remix and just have fun with it, film it and edit it on her phone, and that’s exactly what she did! And I applaud her for that!

Too bad Tito aka “El Bambino” aka “El Patron” (dude, just pick a nickname already!) took his part too seriously and didn’t goof around with it.

Ok, jokes aside, I’m not a big fan of the remix (you know me, remixes are not my cup of tea) but the more I listen to it, the more I like it, especially starting with minute 3:00. I noticed Thalia added some more vocals to the song there and that last minute sounds great! It’s a good remix for the summer, with a light and colorful video which is meant to reflect just that and nothing more, so just enjoy it!

Thalía – Vuélveme a Querer (Official Video)

The video for Vuélveme a Querer was supposed to be released on May 13 (I think), however according to Thalia’s Twitter, she couldn’t wait any longer and decided to give us the video TODAY!

Now, let me tell you something, as someone who’s part of various fan bases for different artists and Youtubers, if there’s one thing I have noticed is that fans can be so mean, so harsh, and they actually become the biggest critics (and haters) ever.

The expectations are always so many and so high and with this, inevitably comes disappointment. So, given the lyrics of this song, a lot of people were expecting some kind of story that would represent them (me included) and now they are complaining that the video is shallow, lacks creativity etc etc.

Despite the fact that I may not always agree with Thalia’s decisions and yes, sometimes I get disappointed or frustrated (I mean, have you read my last post? LOL) I always try to remember that she’s a PERSON just like us, and she tried her best to give a quality video for this song, was excited to work on it and share it just as we were excited to see it, so just try to remember that, ok?

Thalia-VaqVideo1

Coming back to the story of the song, although there may seem that there’s no story there, my interpretation is as follows: those scenes where Thalia’s all alone on stage, barefoot and dressed casually, in an empty theater, gives me major Primera Fila throwbacks and MAYBE the point is that THIS is actually Thalia’s STORY – back in 2009, when she wanted to get back to music and maybe thought that her audience had forgotten her or had stopped loving her as much as they did in the past, so this is the story of her wanting her audience to love her again. “Aún quedan mil canciones por cantar…

Am I reaching here? Maybe haha it can all be random and just meant to look pretty and that’s all, but I’d rather believe that there’s more to this video, you just have to look a little bit closer.

I could go on and on supporting my interpretation, analyze the fact that we see two versions of Thalia here and what that could mean, but I think this post is already long enough😀

Thalia-VaqVideo2

Queen! 😍

I would really love to see what your thoughts are, so please share them in the comment section below!

PS: I’m gonna upload some captures soon, I wish I had time to do it now… but I don’t😀 Thanks for reading!

Thalia performs Vuélveme a querer on Nuestra Belleza Latina

ThaliaNBL2

On Sunday, May 8, Thalia was a guest on Univision’s show Nuestra Belleza Latina, where she performed the second single from her new album – Latina (available now!).

Vuélveme a querer is definitely one of my favorite songs from Latina and I’m happy we got this first performance on TV while we’re waiting for the official music video.

There’s no movement across the stage this time, but Thalia’s gestures and facial expressions are more than enough and perfectly convey the message and emotions of the song. I also loved the dress and that big smile at the end of the performance 😍

ThaliaNBL1

All in all, it was a good performance, but you know me, I desperately need a live performance of this song 😭. Thalia, my love, please, I believe in you, I know you can deliver a jaw-dropping, heart-warming, live rendition of this song (and any other song). I don’t know what’s holding you back but please, bring back that version of yourself I fell in love with back in 2009/2010. To this day, one of my favorite performances is Equivocada on Hoy, you were so nervous from the beginning, you messed up the lyrics and it was still PERFECT because it was raw, it was emotional, and that’s what music really is about!

Ok, rant over😀 Here’s Vuélveme a querer:

PS: You can also check my post about Más on NBL, it’s actually pretty similar to this one haha
