It has everything to do with whether you pay to se them
Ps Celine is equally talentless . All that air guitar playing - and so badly

Being canadian doesn't mean you transcend the taste detector!

No but I think it is pretencious to call someone talentless when sitting on his butt and certainly not showing how much better someone can do.

Talentless is definitely overrate here.... Without mentioning that it is just a matter of opinions for what it is worthed...

Which she certainly didn't build her billions on, but because she is good and people all over the world loved her.

I have no idea what any of that means ...
Celine may be "loved" by many ... in that luvie / showbiz sort of way
But I bet those who can't stand her are a much greater number ...

Anyway back to real talent ...

Re: I paid to see Shakira in concert this week

Well in mexico, to be more exact Yucatan now its the subject of the moment because the governor (sadly first time a woman rules a state and she decides to do this) decided to bring Shakira for free and make a huge debt that the state will have to pay for the next years.
For what people will want to go one night to see shakira and pay the rest of their working life.

Re: I paid to see Shakira in concert this week

Since we are now massively off topic anyway...

Last night I went to see Julieta Venegas as part of the "Live at Sunset" at the Dolder Eisbahn. That is Talent, with capital "T".

Despite saying earlier that I thought Shakira was not that bad and I had a good time, Miss Venegas' performance was half the price of Shakira, half the fuss and attitude, and I enjoyed it 10 times more.

She plays all instruments (keyboard, guitar, accordeon), writes her own songs, the stage was very simple (no "special effects") to leave space for her voice and her music. She and her band started at 8:30 on the dot, performed for about 1.5 hours, and at the end gifted the audience with a couple more surprise songs, one of which was a tribute to Los Tigres del Norte, for those among you who know/appreciate the Norteño music.

Loved it. If you ever have the chance, go see her because she is excellent.

RUSH! Yes, you beat me to it, one of my all time favourite bands, I've been listening to Rush ever since someone lent me a copy of "Moving Pictures" - when it was a new album, err that was in 1981 - I think that makes me old and a Rush fan for 30 plus years now.
