[2012] Amnesia Ibiza Magazine 8
Jan


During 2012 I might have missed few updates due to busy job, life, whatever. So I just came across this digital issue of Amnesia magazine dated august 2012. As I always do I looked to get the photoshoot too. The photographer is Virgili Jubero and you can check out the photos along with the magazine scans in the gallery:

“In the advent of olympic fever, we speak with Nelly Furtado about the gymnast who marked her life as the inspiration for her name, about playing portuguese songs in her parents’ house and the greatest treasure she’s been lucky to find.”

Nelly on NY Mag: “Timbo’s kind of socially awkward” 12
Dec

The main topic on latest weekly issue of New York Magazine was ‘The Year In Culture 2013‘: an annual look back at the year that was, with a focus on four people who found great success in it, Timbaland has a spot in it and Nelly was interviewed for the Loose era with him and behind the scenes tips. Read the whole Timbaland special here or Nelly’s parts below:

Thanks to Jalim for the tip.

“He has an amazing sensibility,” says Nelly Furtado, who might have been the “I’m Like a Bird” girl forever had her label not hired Mosley to work on her 2006 album, Loose. “He has good taste, and he makes good choices.”

He wasn’t always easy to work with. Mosley was becoming a star himself at the point when he began working with Furtado, and the pressure was intense. “It was always challenging to work with him, like, ‘You gotta hit a home run!’ ” He worked like he was still in the basement, hustling for a break. “He lived in this tiny little tour bus outside the studio, and he’d be in there until 1 a.m.,” she says. “Then he’d go out to a club until 6 a.m.,” not to party so much as to see what kinds of sounds were getting people excited. “Then he’d go back to the studio. He’s making a product for a consumer that needs it. He’s very aware, at an intrinsic level, of that fact that people want to lose themselves.”

Nelly doesn’t care about album sales 26

“Just like a lot of my albums, actually. I have very few albums that debut high,” Furtado tells AOL Music Blog

“I’ve had kind of everything happen to me commercially and at different levels,” she says. “I’ve had different scenes and I’ve dabbled in a lot of markets so I see the music world as very global and I’m always looking for new avenues and opportunities, so one chart or anything doesn’t necessarily [mean anything.]”

“We’ll see what happens and just keep on chugging along with these songs because musically I can’t wait to perform them live. That’s my main goal,” she says.

Besides, she adds, The Spirit Indestructible is the exact album that she wanted to make, not one that was dictated by current trends, potential radio play or record sales.

“It’s a good litmus test because that means you are always happy no matter what happens,” Furtado says.

“I’m so proud of it creatively. I’ve gotten feedback that it’s a very liberating album to listen to and for me it was liberating to create it. Luckily, I have had a lot of ups and downs in my career on a commercial level, so I’m very bulletproof in that way.”
