All that with one condition: that we reach the 4 million followers by June 6.

Live: Thalia – Equivocada (Mas que baile)

Short introduction: As you may already know, I always forget about some of the post Categories I have on my blog, usually for months (I really have to do something about it!) 

This is the first video that popped into my mind when I finally thought about writing a Live post, mostly because it’s one of my favorite performances of Equivocada, and now I just can’t stop listening to it. I remember that the first time I watched it I found it so beautiful and heartfelt that it almost made me cry. I also love the last seconds, when the microphone was so far away and yet her voice sounded so powerful, that’s one of the things that always impress me in a live performance. (And just as a little detail, it’s nice to watch the couple dancing in the background too.)

What do you think of this performance? 🙂

Happy 10th Birthday, “Thalía” (album)!

Today we’re celebrating the birthday of Thalia’s 7th studio album, which was released on May 21, 2002 in the USA and Latin America!

Her second self-titled album went straight to number one and it spent six consecutive weeks on Billboard’s Top Latin Album Chart and Top Latin Pop Albums.

The album received many Platinum and Gold certifications and was sold in more than 5,5 million copies worldwide.

Singles like “Tu y yo“, “No me ensenaste” and “A quien le importa” were #1 in lots of countries of Latin America, Europe and the USA, eventually becoming some of her greatest hits, while her three songs in English, “Dance dance (The Mexican)”, “Closer to you” and “You spin me round” prepared her crossover to the US market.

Looking back at users’ reviews on sites like Amazon, we find titles like “Thalia’s here, and better than ever!”, “Thalia one of the best around”, “Heavenly made!”, the album had lots of great reviews and was very well received by the public.

I don’t know how I would’ve felt about the album, had I listened to it 10 years ago when it was released (maybe the 10-year-old me would have enjoyed it haha) but ever since I became Thalia’s fan, this album has definitely been one of my favorites, I always have a great time listening to “Tu y yo” or “En la fiesta mando yo”, songs like “Asi es el destino” and “Y seguir” give me hope and strength when I need it, while “A quien le importa” is like one of my personal “anthems”… and just like I once said somewhere on this blog, “No me ensenaste” is one of the first songs that brought Thalia into my life.

I’m sure that for fans who have followed Thalia for many years before this album was released and up to this day, “Thalia” has a special place in their hearts and it’s truly great to be celebrating its 10 birthday today. That being said, let’s congratulate Thalia for doing such an amazing job, then listen to some of the songs that have been part of our lives for the past 10 years 😀 and watch some memorable live performances:

Journey to the past: Thalia as one of People en Espanol’s “Los Mas Bellos”

Last time I invited you on a “Journey to the past” we discovered together (or remembered) how Thalia’s website changed throghout the years. Today I’m going to talk to you about something different, but using that same idea. Since this year Thalia has been named, for the 9th time, one of the 50 most beautiful people by the People en Espanol magazine, I thought it would be great to take a look back at her previous appearances in the same special issue that has been part of this magazine for the past 14 years.

People en Espanol started the tradition in 1998, back then only “25 bellezas” were chosen. 27 year-old Thalia was one of them, by that time she had already released 5 studio albums and starred in the Marias Trilogy, her beauty being well-known by millions of people worldwide. Her photo was on the cover of the magazine, together with Leonardo DiCaprio and Salma Hayek’s, the cover star being Carlos Ponce.

Here are some images from the photo shoot, of a sweet and sexy Thalia:

During the interview for Cristina Saralegui’s show dedicated to “Las 25 bellezas de 1998”, Thalia shared some of her beauty secrets, drinking a lot of water, taking care of her hair, using creme and removing the make-up as soon as she could being among them. In her opinion, those things guaranteed staying beautiful for a long time. Looking at her now, she was definitely right!

Two years later, in 2000, Thalia was named, for the second time, one of the 25 most beautiful people. Next to Gloria Estefan, she represented the ladies on the cover of the magazine, this time with Juan Soler as the cover star.

2002 came and Thalia was one of the most 25 beautiful people of the year:

 

In 2003 it was finally time for Thalia to take over the cover of the magazine, this being her first time as the cover girl of “Las 25 bellezas”, while the issue had become the most popular one of the magazine.

 

Gracing this year’s cover is Mexican singing sensation and EMI international talent Thalia who will debut her first English-language self-titled album early this summer. “Thalia’s combined talents are a winning formula,” says Angelo Figueroa, former Managing Editor of People en Espanol. “Hispanic audiences have always loved her and I’m certain that the rest of the world will too.” source

On the red carpet, Thalia wore a Roberto Cavalli design, which she personalized to match her own style. She was excited to be on the cover of the magazine, but mostly thankful to the public, to the people, for choosing her.

The event organized in honor of the issue was one of the biggest ones of People en espanol to that moment, Thalia being one of the artists who performed that night. In between the songs, she thanked the public once again for choosing her and for supporting her throughout the years, and said that being on that list is a true distinction, as beauty is not only about the looks, it’s also about the look in your eyes, the honesty of a smile and the expression of the skin which gives itself up to everyone.

In the photos featured on the magazine, Thalia looked seductive in her red dress inside a luxury car.

In 2004 the magazine extended the list from 25 bellezas to 50 mas bellos, and in 2005 Thalia made it once again on it. On the website of People en Espanol, we can find this picture and a short text:

“My body: Eating lots of vegetables, having fish, seafood, chicken and a couple of times a week some meat. Drinking a lot of water and doing exercise.

No one knows: Entering a public bathroom is unpleasant, because I have to hold the door handles with my clothes or turn the water on with a Kleenex. I feel that by being in public places I breathe all those people, which are good, but there are also crazy people. That’s my greatest phobia.”

Two years later (2007), Thalia, then 35, had maybe one of the most stunning appearances on the magazine’s list, the black dress she wore for the photo shoot being quite memorable, as well as the other poses and looks.

 

On the site we find the following information:

Nationality: Mexican

She stands out for: being an actress, singer, business woman and having recently debuted as a radio host on the show “The Conexion Thalia Radio Show”.

Interesting fact: She’s happily married to Tommy Mottola and assures that this year she’s going to be a mother. “My relationship has always been sensational, with or without storms.”

via

One year later, in 2008, Thalia, mother for the first time, surprised everyone with her majestic look on that year’s issue of “Los 50 mas bellos”, in a photo shoot by Omar Cruz.

For the 7th time, Thalia decorates our list, and just like her husband, music mogul Tommy Mottola says, 6 months from having given birth to her little Sabrina Sake, the mexican singer “is more beautiful than ever”.

As we’re getting closer to the present, there’s only one year left to remember, 2010. In another photo shoot by Omar Cruz, Thalia went back to the past, her look reminding of her years as the Marias, while at the same time she remained Thalia the Beauty Queen.

“I don’t want glamour. I’m living the best time of my life, today I’m looking for the simple things.”

via

We’re back to where we started, an interview for Cristina’s show, with a much wiser Thalia, happy with who she is, a Thalia who values honesty and sincerity, who treats everyone as equal, listens to her heart and says the things just the way she sees them, without caring what anyone thinks about that.

This year Thalia has finally agreed to be on the group cover of the magazine, looking as gorgeous as always, while her arrival at the People en Espanol: Los 50 mas bellos Gala was one of the most expected ones. And it wasn’t for nothing! All the lights and eyes were on her and her incredibly sexy dress, Thalia proving that at 40 you can still look as beautiful and attractive as at 20, if not even more.

There’s a lot more that can be said about Thalia as one of People en Espanol’s “Los Mas Bellos”, there are lots of materials left to share and see, but unfortunately I couldn’t find more than what I’ve already shown you. If you have any scans or photos that you’d like to share, please do! 🙂

The reason I wrote this post is simple, I wanted to take a journey to the past and admire the way Thalia changed during the years, becoming more beautiful and elegant as time passed. I think that her good looks are just a reflection of her inner beauty, of the wonderful person she is, and that’s why over the years people (or People) kept choosing her as one of the 25 or 50 most beautiful people.

In the end I’d like to thank Ruthie at PlanetThalia.com for allowing me to use her site as source for the most part of this post, as well as NuestraThalia.com for the rest of the photos and the Youtube users who uploaded the videos. And of course, the People en Espanol magazine, for doing such an incredible job.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed it!

Thalia: “Los mas bellos” (Prima TV Romania)

Like I said in my post yesterday, Thalia’s been all over the news with her look at the People en Espanol: Los 50 mas bellos Gala. If first I showed you a video and article from RTV, today I have another one for you, this time from Prima TV.

Credits: Prima TV

Timpul parcă nu trece peste Ricky Martin, Thalia şi J Lo. Cele trei staruri au fost incluse şi anul acesta pe lista celor mai frumoşi 50 de oameni din lume. Clasamentul a fost întocmit de revista People en espanol, iar norocoşii au fost răsplătiţi şi cu o petrecere pe cinste.

Time seems to stop for Ricky Martin, Thalia and J Lo. The three stars have been included this year also on the list of the 50 most beautiful people in the world. The top has been created by the People en espanol magazine, and the lucky ones have also been rewarded with an awesome party.

This is also extracted from the video:

[…] The artist (Ricky Martin) was followed by another glamorous presence, Thalia, who is on the list for the 9th time. Asked how she gets more attractive each year, the diva couldn’t give a very clear answer (I LOLed) “Physically I don’t know, but  I think the most unpleasant is the impatience and the bad mood, which suddenly get right back at you.” (I… am not sure I got that right 😀) If for Thalia being on this list wasn’t a surprise at all, the Dominican TV host Charytin Goyco was surprised to find out that at 62, people still find her very beautiful.

So my mom says to me: “I saw Thalia in the news today, she’s SO beautiful!” And I’m like: “You did? Where, when?!” so I started looking for videos online and I found an article and a video, saying:

“Pe covorul roşu au păşit rând pe rând Thalia, Julian Gil şi multe alte frumuseţi latine. Cântăreaţa mexicană Thalia a uimit ca de obicei audienţa cu ţinuta-i foarte provocatoare, puternic accesorizată. “Este o bucurie, o onoare să fiu aici. M-am simţit foarte bine pe covorul roşu. Sunt foarte fericită”, a declarat Thalia.”

“On the red carpet stepped, one by one, Thalia, Julian Gil and a lot more Latin beauties. The Mexican singer Thalia amazed the audience like always, with her provocative outfit, strongly accessorized. “It’s a joy, an honor to be here. I had a really great time on the red carpet. I’m very happy.”, said Thalia.”

You can watch the video by clicking here, unfortunately I’m not able to embed videos on my blog and I wouldn’t “steal” it and upload it on Youtube either.

It’s great to see Thalia in the news again, I wish it’d happen more often, so I can’t wait for her new album to be released and hopefully get to see her more on Romanian TV channels 😀

But Thali, always remember: ROMANIA LOVES YOU !!! So come pay us a visit, it’s about time, don’t you think?

I looooved it, she talked so nice about everything and the interaction with the people there was great! 😀 Marimar! Marimar! hahaha

Well, that’s about all! I’m glad that Thali had such a great time doing this whole “Los 50 mas bellos” thing (once again), her appearance at the party was a blast, I’d say one of the best this year, and I can’t wait to see her at other events, looking as gorgeous as always!
