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!

    A: I’d travel to the time of Jesus Christ, so I could be next to Him and listen to Him. That’s what I would do.

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!

More photos and interviews of Thalia and Laura Pausini

 

It seems that we get something new from the recording of the Sino a ti music video every day, just enough to make the wait harder and harder 😀

People En Español published a few photos from the making of the video and an article from which I’ll only present these phrases:

“I was afraid to approach her, I didn’t know if she knew me.” Laura Pausini about Thalia. I mean… her modesty is inspiring.

“I could sing this song only with her, because I wanted a female voice that would be exactly like mine.” again, Laura about Thalia. Well, it was about time they did a song together!

We also have this interview they gave to Hola:

Thalia’s face when Laura talks about Mexico, aaaawww 🙂

“I swear there’s no better gift than such a powerful song, really, because when you listen to it and the lyrics and you think about it […] when she told me it’s a song dedicated to a child and I listened to it, I sang it and pictured the face of my son Mateo, it’s just perfect. It’s perfect for a child, a lover, for everything.”  Thalia

Check out my posts Laura Pausini & Thalia – Mommies and besties (Reforma Gente) and Thalia and Laura Pausini filmed the music video for “Sino a ti” for more!

What’s interesting is that in these interviews we’ve seen so far, we haven’t got the chance to listen to a bit of Thalia’s part of the duet *the suspense is killing me*

I’ll update this post if anything new comes up!

Thalia interviews Daniela Mercury on Conexion Thalia

Having sold over 20 million albums worldwide, Daniela Mercury is one of the greatest Brazilian artists.

In case you missed it, here’s Thalia’s chat with her on Conexion Thalia!

Enjoy! 🙂

Thalia on HuffPost Live

Oh. My. God. I just finished watching this interview and I think it’s already become my favorite one EVER! As I’m writing this all I wanna do is watch it again and again! *bursts with excitement*

I’m happy whenever the people at huffingtonpost.com write about Thalia so an interview is such a treat! Out of all the interviews she’s been giving lately about Chupie, this is by far the best one, you can see she’s so relaxed, their conversation is so pleasant, like they’ve been friends for a long time, not to mention they talked about so many other things too.

Apparently Thalia’s preparing TWO new albums (other than the Viva Tour En Vivo), when I read about it earlier today I didn’t quite believe it, but now after hearing it from her I’m really eager to find out more! The first one is in the mastering process and will be released in the first trimester of 2014, while the second one is intended to be a summer album. Whoa!

Aaaand she’s also preparing something for the fashion world! New collection, maybe? We shall wait and see!

Ok, enough talking, if you haven’t already watched the video, click play!

Thanks so much to Erika for uploading it on Youtube (WordPress, I hate your embeding system)  Thanks Mariel for uploading it on Dailymotion (Youtube, I hate you too) and a shoutout to my lucky friend Hovag for getting two questions answered!

Oh, one last thing… raise your hand if you too have fallen in love with Ahmed Shihab-Eldin O/ 😀

Video: Thalia: Los 50 mas bellos backstage interview (Sal y pimienta)

As I told you a few days ago, Sal y pimienta aired a new backstage interview of Thalia during the People en Espanol: Los 50 mas bellos photoshoot. What I didn’t expect then was that they’d bring up Mother’s Day and what it means for Thalia this year… which made the interview even more special…

What has Thalia been up to lately? (2)

Hello everyone! I haven’t posted anything for more than a week so I think it’s time to do some catching up and talk to you about the things that have happened since her visit to Mexico for América celebra a Chespirito. Here it goes, in random order:

___

Sony Music Mexico finally published the news about Thalia’s album Primera Fila having sold more than 500.000 copies in Mexico, at the same time being in Amprofon‘s Top 100 for over 117 weeks. I already posted some photos, you can find them here. It’s a great accomplishment and I’m happy that after more than 2 years since its release, Primera Fila is doing so great! It’s all well deserved and I’m sure this isn’t over here and people will continue to buy and enjoy that album for more time to come!

By the way, I loved what @Spike_23 said:

Thalia’s latest Twitter contest, #CaraChistosa, got its winners! It was a pretty difficult task (since about 1400 people sent in their pictures) but a really FUN one too (for the same reason)!

[tweet https://twitter.com/#!/thalia/status/175431649163608065]

Here they are! Congrats to everyone! 😀

I sent a couple of pictures too, but I soon realized that I didn’t stand a chance with them. Well, I’m still waiting for a contest in which I can totally kick ass and win a signed copy of Cada día más fuerte or Growing Stronger. In fact, it could be anything, as long as it first passes through her hands… *daydreaming*

It took Thalia less than 140 characters to make us all excited about her forthcoming projects!

[tweet https://twitter.com/#!/thalia/status/176786284910616578]

We already know some things about the album, but the boooook! Is it the book for kids, the one we first heard about in 2010?? Is it?! It’s gotta be it, right? Or maybe she’ll surprise us with a whole different one! I want to know more details !!

___

During her visit to Mexico, Thalia gave an exclusive interview for the Hoy tv show, where she talked about the tribute to Chespirito, about writing Cada día más fuerte, about the difficult moments she’s been through over the last months and reconciling with her sister Laura, about what being married in another country means to her and the fact that up until now, her daughter didn’t even know that she’s an artist. She also mentioned how things are going with her next album and of course, that people are still asking her to go back to telenovelas. Here is the interview:

thanks ThaliaDiva !

Thalia’s radio show, Conexion Thalia, is turning 5 this month! They’ve already recorded the anniversary show, which will probably be aired next Saturday, exactly on its birthday! (Or maybe tomorrow, we’ll see…) This is what she tweeted:

[tweet https://twitter.com/#!/thalia/status/177449477710426112]

I LOVE the photo !!! ♥

___

Yesterday, Thalia did a photo shoot, I have no idea for what, but I can’t wait to see the photos!! After a hard working day, she deserved a massage, but her sense of humor made it into the media again, since she used the magic words “costillas” LOL

[tweet https://twitter.com/#!/thalia/status/177919575051079680]

She also shared a beautiful photo! And her hair looks absolutely amazing !!

[tweet https://twitter.com/#!/thalia/status/177969594206658560]

Her stylist, Irma Martinez, shared a photo too, saying:

[tweet https://twitter.com/#!/irmastyle/status/177894373441290240]

I definitely can’t wait to see the photos!!

___

Last but not least… Remember Thalia’s duet with Dora the Explorer? Now we have a video promoting her as guest star in “Dora’s rescue in Mermaid Kingdom”.

I can’t seem to access “People en espanol“‘s article, but you can also read it on ThaliaDiva’s blog (thanks once again for that and for the picture I used here!)

___

One more thing… I have two short announcements to make 😀

The first one:

[tweet https://twitter.com/#!/MDCThalia/status/176169302511206400]

I’m so honored and happy to be part of that team !! 😀

And the second one:

[tweet https://twitter.com/#!/anamaria_o7/status/177795374109556736]

Two years !! It’s nothing compared to Thalia’s long career, but the love and the admiration I have for her are genuine and having her in my life is one of the best things that happened to me! THANK YOU for everything, Thali! ♥

Well, that’s all! Thanks for passing by! 😀
