Those heady days are almost as long gone as the extinct Ichthyornis.

Just how long was the article writer sittin' on that chestnut?

She has the same or more hits than Gaga or TOGTFO ? I don't think so.

FTA: "I think that's the price I've had to pay for being inconsistent in my touring schedule,"
Mmm more like the fact that she is boring on stage. I saw her once at Ottawa's Bluesfest one year and they could have had someone standing up there holding a mike in front of a stereo. She pretty much played everything like on her albums. She didn't mix it up. It's always nice when an artist plays one of their hits a bit different. Granted when she sings live she sounds as good as on the album which is a credit to her voice. But she is as entertaining on stage as dinner music; it's there but if you look away you aren't missing anything.

Probably didn't help that there was another popular artist named Nelly.

I think shes hot.

I've always liked her but I wouldn't ever think of her as a 'headliner'

She'll be back. She just needs to wear the blue dress again.

I know Nelly Furtado in the biblical sense. And by that I mean I don't believe a thing she says.

She needs to realize that her core fanbase probably have young children right now and can't afford the tickets/time for the shows.

I had a Furtado for lunch yesterday.

Shape-shifter. If I could acquire a sample of her DNA, I may be able to synthesize a compound that would negate her abilities and either lock her into her present form, or reduce her molecular structure to the same consistency as that of warm Jell-O. Now if you'll excuse me, I must tell Asteroid to remember to pick up some whipped cream.

Last time she toured it was on the heels of a chart topping collaboration with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, and when she played in Edmonton it was on the grounds of the exhibition (ie free show with park entrance). This time it's after a long absence, a foreign language album, a political scandal, and a poorly promoted "new" CD...and tickets start at $45. As much as I like her, explaining a drop in attendance doesn't seem like rocket science to me.
 
2013-01-13 01:25:08 PM
I heard she's on a double bill with Dexy's Midnight Runners. That should boost attendance.

I got a green horn for her, if you catch my drift.

She's pretty but annoying.

Steps to success
1. Either pose naked or release a sex tape (preferably with me).
2. Make a hit song that will play in America. You will probably need to collaborate with another musician.
3. Follow up with awesome music video.
4. Then you can tour.

Either do this or be content to be part of the Kraft Dinner tour with the Barenaked Ladies, Avril Lavine, Nickleback and opening "comedy" act Howie Mandel.

Is this that stupid song with the chorus:

I am like a bird,
I'll only swim away.
I don't know where my home is,
I don't know what a bird is.

Who knew completely changing your sound, relying heavily on other (actually talented) musicians and producers and taking over half a decade off could impact your concert attendance?
 
2013-01-13 04:28:20 PM
Maybe if she didn't sell out to make a quick buck and stuck with stuff like on Whoa Nelly, people would be interested in her still.

I really beefed a gigantic furtado in the bowl and now the floor of the bathroom is flooded. Does anyone have the number of a good plumber?
 
2013-01-13 05:25:09 PM
I'm one of the few people who noticed she released a new album a few months ago.

Her granola girl stuff grew old after "I'm Like A Bird" flew all over the place. Then she had a baby.

Then after getting her groove back, she wanted to be Gwen Stefani or J. Lo. Worked for about a year or so before the economy and the "old" entertainment industry shattered.

Doesn't mean it's not her fault. Don't performers know by now that what worked for Boston or Def Leppard back in the day doesn't wash now?

step 0 : lose the horrific Mother Theresa attitude
step 1 : lose the gigantic ass that accompanies the attitude.
step 3 : take voice lessons
step 4 : lose my number. you're spent and all used up
step 5 : fix those gladbags already...fix em...

This.

I heard her new song, or a newer song, and was intensely confused. How she could go from singer-songwriter to doing club jamz is just weird and nonsensical.

Her live show has got to be the most schizophrenic thing ever.

I don't understand when people complain about artists changing styles. Do you want them to get bored? Do you want to keep buying the same album over and over?

Think of acts like Pink Floyd. Until the 70s, every album was different. Some albums (e.g. Meddle) were different styles with every song.

Complaining that they didn't pull it off is legit, but complaining about an artist experimenting is like calling for the music industry to get blander than it already is.
 
2013-01-14 12:28:40 AM
Speaking of old acts... I saw Weezer last night, 100 bucks a ticket (It's Australia, so that's about average down here for a touring act from the States).

They were actually pretty good, but when they ripped through the entire Blue Album... damn I felt old.

Anyway, they were able to fill the entertainment center here pretty alright even at that price. I guess even though they haven't had a really big hit in a few years, they still work/tour regularly enough to draw a crowd, and to be fair their sound is pretty dated now too.

This chick on the other hand... damn I can't even remember the last time I thought of her, let alone heard one of her songs. Same with Fiona Apple, and she used to be hella hawter than this girl. Whatever happened to her?
 
2013-01-14 12:36:01 AM
I'm not surprised. Her new songs suck (including the "hit" single, the retarded "Big Hoops"),
and I saw her perform on tv at a New Years celebration, pretty lame all-around. She doesn't even have that good of a voice. Nasally and flat.

However, "Loose" WAS pretty successful and the hits were catchy as hell (probably due to the Timbaland having something to do with it).

Yea she's hot and that video was hot but it was pretty obvious it was a sell out. I kind of respected her more when she was doing the sappy pop music

Those heady days are almost as long gone as the extinct Ichthyornis. For that sentence alone the writer deserves a cock punch.

A pop stars shelf life is short by design, and with the cycle accelerating it's only going to get shorter.

I like "Big Hoops" and "Parking Lot."
 
2013-01-14 12:37:59 PM
Not suprised to hear she is on a down turn in her career.
Time to move on and do something else. She can wash my car for instance.
But she'd have to sing while doing it.....

"I'm like a sponge,
I like to wash a car hey,
I don't know where the soap is,
Is that bird crap or dry jizz."

You forgot:

Have a baby - or at least pretend to be pregnant.
Already have a child? Have another one, preferably with another partner.
Or adopt, preferably from another culture.

Doesn't work for everyone, but it can't hurt, right?
