    HER VOCAL CORDS SOUND LIKE THEY’RE ON FIRE

    • BEY January 10, 2013

      BWAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH

  2. aynon January 10, 2013

    Oh god

  3. F****** Hairy (Lana & Gaga schoolin’ you) January 10, 2013

    Who wants to see her perform though? Alicia Keys is a snooze fest. Leave the “classy lady” act with your grandma because you can’t be that classy after you were the mistress of a married man.

  4. Ernest January 10, 2013

    This is going to be one boring show.

  5. MonsterDNA January 10, 2013

    We can be brighteeeer, than the suuuuuun … LOL, that’s what came in my mind 1st when i read the title.

    Anyway, I wish i could attend to one of her shows, but she ain’t coming where I live anytime soon. I really love the ‘Girl On Fire’ LP tho..
    I hope people will enjoy the show. She’s a true artist, wish nothing but the best for ha.

  6. Monstarebel (This FAT B**** is the Star Of TGJ) January 10, 2013

    Her new music sucks her voice is dead & she’s hella boring…so no thanks xoxo

  7. JOHNVIDAL January 10, 2013

    What are these b****** doing with their multiple accounts bashing the same artists again and again? You mad at talent LOL
    Alicia´s album is one of 2012´s best. So much quality. And it´s not performing that bad, it is stil in the top10 on Billboard 200, it may go platinum in the end, somethinh that didn´t seem too possible at first
    Her performance in those laughable Choice Awards was great, with passion and showing artistry
    And yes her voice suffers a lot but she has more thing she can rely on. Hope the tour doesn´t hurt her voice too much

  8. Nay nay January 10, 2013

    FLOP!

  9. C. Dominguez January 10, 2013

    I used to like Alicia back in the day. Her vocals are bad now so I think I’ll pass.

  10. Suicide Blonde January 10, 2013

    Who cares!….Bowie and Timberlake are back and The Hobbit picked up three Oscar nominations.

    • JOHNVIDAL January 10, 2013

      Your taste in movies is also that basic? B**** I thought you were better than that 🙂
      (not saying that movie is not good or great entertainment but please it´s that what you are happier about all those movies and nominations?)

      • Suicide Blonde January 10, 2013

        I love the Hobbit, i’m a huge movies fan, they’re not basic, this must be the worse nominations ever.

      • JOHNVIDAL January 10, 2013

        Why? Some great nominations.
        Obviously there are always forgotten people, but it´s impossible to include everything.
        I´m excited about “Beast of the SW”. I don´t even know if it´ll get a proper release in Spain but I´ve heard so many good things about that indie movie. Naomi Watts being nominated is great and a bit suprise for the Spanish film The Impossible
        Django is GREAT, the one with American propaganda I don´t care much but they say is great artistically at least, Les Miserables: amazing performances, Argo: GREAT; Life of pi: amazing visuals, great director
        Only thing is that TDKR and Skyfall could have gotten some noms for minor categories at least, like The Hobbit has gotten. But you can´t expect those type of blockbuster movies to be considered the best movie of the year, can you? Be serious
        And about Leonardo Dicaprio… I think they are waiting and waiting to give him a big oscar for a leading role cos they know the guy keeps on doing great and he can still offer more. It will come

      • Suicide Blonde January 10, 2013

        You have some good points, definitely Les Miserables are the best so far, about Leo they love to do that to beautiful and talented guys, wait till they’re old, they are doing the same thing with Brad Pitt tho i think Leo is a better actor.

      • JOHNVIDAL January 10, 2013

        Brad Pitt is not that good to deserve an oscar really. Leo is a better actor and he started to take interesting role after interesting role when he was very young. Right after Titanic really. Didn´t pay too much attention to him for some years but damn, his performances in Shutter Island, Inception, J.Edgar and Django have won me for life. Next is the Great Gatzby 🙂

      • Suicide Blonde January 10, 2013

        I love Shutter Island, so complicated, i love it but i really think Brad is a good actor, I think his acting is kind of under-appreciated. He’s a classic example of looks overshadowing the talent. His body of work is very diverse, and he’s taken some very big risks.

    • JOHNVIDAL January 10, 2013

      Inception is way more complicated and amazing, more special, but I love Shutter Island. In Edgar he looked so hot, he looks better with brown hair and eyes to me

      • Suicide Blonde January 10, 2013

        Do you like Angelina Jolie as an actress?, i think she’s the best.

      • JOHNVIDAL January 11, 2013

        lol Yes I like. But she is not the best AT ALL. Give me a break. She´s better than her boyfriend
        Best actress past and present is Meryl Streep. Too much perfection for words. She just nails every role like it´s nothing, and for several decades

  11. NICK January 10, 2013

    man I am gonna miss her by a week in Diego, COME TO HAWAII ALICIA!!!! 🙁

  12. eric January 10, 2013

    I’ve seen her on tour 3 times and never was it even the least bit boring. I don’t, however, like these last 2 albums from her. I have to care about the music to buy a $90 ticket and hear it in concert.

  13. 2013 Baby!! January 10, 2013

    Why are people so hateful, fine have your opinion but please state it in a polite way or just hust it!!!

  14. King B>Rihanna January 10, 2013

    Love AK but she is not the best entertainer in the world

  15. Suicide Blonde January 10, 2013

    Timberlake is back, that kid can say goodbye to her career, what was her name tho?.

    Alicia Offkeys will be screaming at the top of her lungs in multiple cities this spring huh?

    I’ll pass.

  19. Mother January 10, 2013

    I’d rather go see a public hanging chile, AK is boring with her strained and twisted vocals.

  20. CoCo January 10, 2013

    Who in their right mind would pay to see Screamlicia Offkeys yell on stage like a banshee, play that tired ass piano and do some stiff dancing? I’ll pass.

  21. mc the place to be! January 10, 2013

    My voice is on fire!! I really want to see Miguel and Sam put up the Oscar nominees since you like to call out people on the razzies

  22. MELODY2012 January 11, 2013

    She fell off from the top BOOM to the ground

  23. Angie January 11, 2013

    Absolutely going to see Alicia. This will be my 3rd time seeing her live & she’s always great.
