Finding an excuse to blog about Nelly Furtado


Originally uploaded by welovedonny.

I’m going to lose the last of the itty bitty street cred I might have with this post, but it’s not like indie cred is going to get me 10% off at Red Robin so I’ll roll with it. Basically for the last day or so I’ve been trying to find a way to blog about Nelly Furtado on Metroblogging Vancouver.

Maybe it’s the giant poster of her that glares down on Robson Street from the window of the HMV like a fifteen foot woman ready to jazzerzie Vancouver’s flabby butts, or the fact that her last album is much too catchy, or the fact that she’s turned into one of the five hottest women in the world but I’ve been looking for a place to blog about her here at Metroblogging Vancouver.

At first I thought I would have a free hand to blog about her however I want, thinking that she was from Vancouver. Gasp no, she’s from Victoria according to Wikipedia [wp] and while Victoria’s basically Vancouver’s little hippie sister it sadly was not a strong enough connection for me. Then I thought that maybe the giant poster would be enough, but I just couldn’t think of much to blog about it. Finally I decided the check to see if she’s coming to town on tour, and she is.

Huzzah. Put that in your Facebook!

She’ll be here March 22nd at GM Place [nf]. Now all that’s left to do is see if I can parlay my blogging position into a photo pass.

    I liked her first two albums. She lost her folksy, fresh dance friendly vibe with her third song. She sounds like she could be an LA shitty little hip hopper. Nah man, she is not good enough anymore.
