Nelly Furtado Brushes Off Bad Sales For 'The Spirit Indestructible' Album: 'I'm Very Bulletproof'
"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.]"
Latin GRAMMY-winning artists Nelly Furtado, Natalia Lafourcade, and Mala Rodríguez and previous Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year Juan Luis Guerra, and Latin GRAMMY-nominated artists Maria Gadú and Alexandre Pires are the latest performers announced for the 2012 Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year gala celebrating Caetano Veloso on Nov. 14 in Las Vegas.
They join previously announced performers Enrique Bunbury, Natalie Cole, Lila Downs, Seu Jorge, Juanes, Tania Libertad, and Ivete Sangalo.
A portion of the net proceeds from the gala will benefit Veloso's chosen charity, Fundación Viva Cazuza in Brazil — a not-for-profit HIV prevention and treatment organization for children and young people — as well as The Latin Recording Academy's outreach and education programs.
The Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year celebration will precede the XIII Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards, which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas and will be broadcast live on the Univision Network on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central.
I'm happy she doesn't give a crap about her flawless album flopping. I'm excited, I wanna see her live. Her regional label said she is set to give an intimate show next month in here, and then she will be back during spring 2013 as part of the tour she is planning, idk. Can't wait!
