Here’s something we should all understand about Thalia

Disclaimer: This is only my humble opinion, which I feel like sharing here, because this is a blog after all. It’s just how I see things, I may be right, I may be not… and you can agree or disagree with me. 

She does whatever she wants to do. I’ve only followed her for four years, but it’s been enough for me to see and understand that she’s not the typical artist or Latin diva. She’s not what people expect her to be, she’s who she wants to be. How many of you would want her to do huge world tours, with countless concerts and full stadiums all over the world, how many of you would like her to release single after single, make video after video and be no. 1 in every chart? I’d say that a lot of you, and truth be told, I’m like that too. But how many of you dreamed of having her autobiography in your bookcase, having a children’s book written by her to read to your (future) kid / nephew, niece etc, or wearing clothes designed by her? And the list could go on. While we’re here waiting for her to start being like other artists, she’s busy being herself, following her dreams, using her creativity in ways that few other artists do.

The reason why I’m writing this is because it’s only been a day since the official announcement of her children’s album and people are already underestimating it, criticizing it, dismissing it. As if releasing such an album is the worst thing she could do in her career. And why? Because like I said, people expect her to do the things they want from her. And what does she do? Inspired by her own children or by something she’s always dreamed of, she takes a bunch of her favorite childhood songs, classics that have passed through many voices throughout the years and decides to give them her own touch, her own rendition and make other children smile with that music. Wow. How dares she?
As for the songs she chose for this album, I myself have complained many times about Thalia doing too many covers lately, but this time it actually makes sense. Oh, you don’t like the songs? You haven’t even listened to them as they are on the album. Oh, someone’s already done covers of them before? So what?

I have no message for the haters, it’s pointless to even deal with them, but to the fans that aren’t that happy with this album I say this: less complaining, more supporting. Sure, this isn’t what you had hoped for, but Thalia’s doing her best to please everyone. We’ve had Habitame Siempre, we’ve had Viva Tour En Vivo and she’s already working on another album, so now let her have and enjoy Viva Kids, in which I’m sure she’s put a lot of hard work and dedication, ultimately not for her own happiness, but for that of the children and adults who will listen to this album.

We should all admire Thalia and support her for thinking outside the box, for trying to reach out to a different audience, for constantly reinventing herself and pursuing the things she wants.

    Very well said. That is why Thalia is better than those other typical artists. Most of those typical artist nowadays that when they are not doing their music (hiatus or something) it’s because they are into drugs and/or into some other vices.. go to rehab etc.. of course some got mental block. Then there’s this failed marriage.. divorce… dating one guy after another etc (Taylor Swift? Jlo? haha). Also she does not put her family problem publicly, no matter how the media tries to (maybe it’s just Laura lol). At least, when she ‘does not doing anything’ professionally.. she do something new, creative, productive and having great time with her family.

    True fans are those that supports whatever their artist’s projects etc. We will not die if she always do covers (it’s just getting on our nerves whenever we found out it’s a cover lol) or she dont do this or that.. maybe she has much better plans

    … & the rest I want to say I think you already said😄

      thanks for the comment!

      besides what you already said about artists not doing music, there’s also the problem with artists that are doing music just for the sake of releasing something new and trying to stay popular, and as they do that they forget about quality and put out stupid songs (not giving names, but you already named who I’m thinking about haha)

      also very true what you said about true fans🙂

    I’m not surprised with the news of this album. I remember in one of her interviews 3 or 4 years ago she said she wanted to record an album for kids .So it’s something she’s wanted to do for a while. I only wonder why it took her so long to finally do it! I think it’s a a great idea as long as she doesn’t keep us (big kids :p) waiting too long for her next album🙂

    Oh yeah I understand it also, it is Thalia’s dream to do kids album. And I am happy that finally she fulfill one of her dreams. And the songs are very fun and enjoy to listen. But I do hope that she will always think also of her fans, her true and loyal fans from the beginning. She has a lot of fans in different parts of the world that still waiting for her.
