Will you be going to see Alicia in action?
HER VOCAL CORDS SOUND LIKE THEY’RE ON FIRE
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.
This is going to be one boring show.
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.
Her new music sucks her voice is dead & she’s hella boring…so no thanks xoxo
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
I used to like Alicia back in the day. Her vocals are bad now so I think I’ll pass.
Who cares!….Bowie and Timberlake are back and The Hobbit picked up three Oscar nominations.
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?)
I love the Hobbit, i’m a huge movies fan, they’re not basic, this must be the worse nominations ever.
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
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.
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 🙂
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.
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
Do you like Angelina Jolie as an actress?, i think she’s the best.
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
man I am gonna miss her by a week in Diego, COME TO HAWAII ALICIA!!!! 🙁
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.
Why are people so hateful, fine have your opinion but please state it in a polite way or just hust it!!!
Love AK but she is not the best entertainer in the world
Timberlake is back, that kid can say goodbye to her career, what was her name tho?.
I hate that b****.

Alicia Offkeys will be screaming at the top of her lungs in multiple cities this spring huh?
I’d rather go see a public hanging chile, AK is boring with her strained and twisted vocals.
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.
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
She fell off from the top BOOM to the ground
Absolutely going to see Alicia. This will be my 3rd time seeing her live & she’s always great.
