I haven’t had so much time to frenetically post all of Thalia’s most recent interviews, photos and news about her (boy, there have been A LOT in the last couple of days!), so what I’m going to do is try to give a short review of them and share some of my thoughts and impressions. You’d better get comfortable, this is going to be a loooong post! 😛
Sooo, let’s begin with the videos I posted two days ago, of the TV show Aqui y ahora, Un dia con Thalia (A day with Thalia). I actually watched it for the first time like 10 minutes ago. As the title mentions, we get to spend a day with Thalia -well, Maria Antonieta Collins and her team got that, so that we can see how a day in Thalia’s life looks like. A work day mostly, I’d say, as she’s doing her radio show Conexion Thalia or setting up the last details for the release of her book, but also taking some time to visit an art gallery. One of the things I really loved about those videos were the surprises: Andrea and Giota getting the surprise of their lives as they met Thalia (remember this?), the people in the art gallery, surprised to see her just popping of nowhere, but Thalia getting a surprise too, with the visit of her friend Lili Estefan (I told you that those two have so much fun when they meet!). Oh, and the part with Q: “Tommy que papel tiene en todo esto?” R: “Aaay, papel de bano.” was hilarious! LOL (in English it wouldn’t be so funny). The actual interview is great too, it seems more of a talk, an open conversation rather than a formal interview, and Thalia opened up about a lot of things, for example the lost of her mother or the relationship with her sisters.
(To be honest, what I don’t like that much about all of these recent interviews is the fact that the media seems to keep talking and asking Thalia over and over again about losing her mother or the kidnapping of her sisters, while in my opinion they should also focus on other aspects of the book. I mean, yes, those two elements were definitely of huge importance in Thalia’s process of growing stronger, but I’m sure that this book has so much more to offer. And it’s obvious that it’s still difficult for her to talk about how the death of her mother affected her or maybe this time she’d like to keep the relationship with her sister Laura out of other people’s eyes and just enjoy reconnecting with her, but I guess the media is always going to be like this. Maybe I’m right, maybe I’m not, but that’s just how I feel about all this.)
That being said, let’s go to the next video, shall we?
Yes, we have again the same two elements I just mentioned, but this interview actually brings up another theme from the book, the fact that it was difficult for Thalia to get pregnant and how she finally got blessed with her two children. It’s true, the more obsessed you are with something, the farther it gets from you, so just letting things happen when they are supposed to is the answer.
This one had some good questions, like what made her write this book or what were the things that she forgave herself for, with really good answers too. I also liked what the male co-host said about Thalia at the end of the material, in spite of the difficulties in her life and all the work she’s doing, Thalia’s voice and the way she speaks haven’t changed, they’re as calm and sweet as always.
Time to watch an interview in English!
I wonder if the guy was also told that he has to pronounce “Ta-lee-uh” LOL. As I was watching this interview, I said to myself “it’s great to hear her speak English!” Just look at her, she’s so expressive and words come out so naturally, made me think I wish I’d speak Spanish as well as she speaks English. 🙂 All in all, it was a great interview, loved the guy’s confession at the end! 😛
Hmm… again, the interview has pretty much the same questions as the other ones, but I liked that between them they showed some images from the book signing.
Now this is an interview I really enjoyed watching, the questions were more diverse, some of Thalia’s answers were fun, others were wise and inspiring. And she said that we’re the best fans in the world!! We are, aren’t we? 😀
This is where I got to the point where I’ve been writing this post for a while and I’m a bit tired, so no comments on this video…
I think this is the best one I’ve watched. Yes, it is. I got absorbed by it and 10 minutes felt too short, I wish it lasted longer. THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT!! Watch it, watch it and replay it, it is worth it!
Aaand, time for another interview in English:
Only one comment: Aaaaawwww, Matthew Alejandro!
What I liked about this one is the talk about her telenovelas and the “Yahoooooooo hahaha” part. Cute!
Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve come to the end of this post! I hope you’ve had the patience to read the nonsense I’ve written up to this point (if you did, I can’t tell you how grateful I am). Here’s the cherry on top of the cake!
One word: ADORABLE!
Thank you all for visiting and for your time, and thanks to Thalia-Diva for all the work they do every day to keep us updated with all the videos, photos and news about Thalia, I couldn’t have done this post without them (I probably would have spent at least a couple of hours searching for all these videos, honestly I don’t know how Thalia does it. Or wait, I do. She’s growing stronger every day and this is part of it!)
Thanks once again, feel free to leave me your comments and opinions on this post, I would really appreciate it.
XOXO (just kidding hahaha)
