# 2

Is that the first picture of Nelly’s son?? I guess.. he is big though, and she is so young.. but they’re cute.

# 3

oh! she’s a very great singer, I love her. her daugther is growing un so fast.

I think that nelly is 25%portuguese, because his father come from to canada and her mother to canada and portugal. but she speaks portugues ,like me.

Nevis is a mix of East Indian, Filipino and Pourtugese. she is cute.

# 5

Nelly was born in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Both her parents are Portuguese emigrants, from Azores. She speaks rudimentary Portuguese only, with a funny Canadian-Azorean accent. I have been living in Portugal for the last years and she is well-liked here but her interviews in Portuguese are a bit of a comedy really.

# 7

Wished she stayed with Nevis father , he is a very nice guy and from a decent family. He was really hurt by the break up as he really loved her.

# 9

i read a thing about her, and now I know that she’s 100% portuguese, but she born in Canada…

I love it all the Portguese people….I am 100% as well. She is great role model for us.

Gussie, I´d advise you to not mock her. Considering she is proud on her Portuguese roots, what you´ve said is definitelly in very poor taste.

Gussie, I´d advise you to not mock her. Considering she is proud on her Portuguese roots, what you´ve said is definitelly in very poor taste.

Why do you think she’s mocking her when she is only speaking her truth. Not being able to speak fluent portuguese is not a bad reflection of her heritage.

Me too: FYI, the poster mocked Nelly for her comic interviews. If you don´t know or have not seen her interviews, you cannot identify the mockery tone in the poster above. Go back to the bamzs thread, dear.

Oh… and one more thing:

“Not being able to speak fluent portuguese is not a bad reflection of her heritage.” That was exavtly what was implied by that poster. Read again before commenting and trying to provoque.

ITA Leila. That was so unnecessary. she is proud of her heritage. Too bad some people need to constantly make fool of her pronounce.

You people need to get a life…..

It sad to see that gussie is making fun of her. I am Portuguese, living in Portugal, and I can say that we admire her because, even though her Portuguese isn’t very fluent, she makes an effort, she never lived in Portugal or in Açores, so I think you shoul look at yourself and teste your portuguese before making remarkes like that….

Nice to finally see her daughter! She looks a lot like her mum from what I can tell! Who cares if Nelly isn’t fluent in Portuguese? Last time I checked she live in Canada, not Portugal. You don’t have to speak a foreign language to be proud of your roots!

Nelly is beautiful and talented and her daughter is beautiful as well. It’s sad to see that you guys have nothing to do but argue amongst yourselves while she at this very moment is somewhere else not even aware of your existance enjoying your money. Screw all of you!!!!

Tony, Nevis is a girl. god what an insult lol d!@$head

nelly you rock!! but this photo is bad people!! the stupid paparazzi has gone against nelly’s wishes of ever showing nevis to the public until she is 18. i respect her for keeping nevis away from all the media. shame on you paparazzi person…shame on you!

omg first time i get too see her daughter shes cute!

Just finishing seeing Nelly on Portuguese show ‘Extase’, and I really don’t understand why people are ragging on her pronounciation. I think considering she was born and raised in Canada she speaks really well. She understood the host and answered all questions really well and was friendly. At least she took the time to get back to her roots and show her pride!!

Today I saw to interviews with Nelly Furtado and in both she spoke Portuguese… I think she speaks pretty good for a person that have never lived here..and her heritage is from Azores, which has the people with the most horrible portuguese accent…people from the continent sometimes cant even understand ppl from Azores..

But that is not even the Problem… Because, she is WAY too weird, when she is speaking Portuguese.. In Extase and in Exclusivo she was so weird that I could almost bet that she was on drugs… Her face, her expressions and her giggles ( she laugh of their own and not funny jokes ?! )

Give it a rest @ 11/11/2006 at 10:21 pm

OVER-RATED! I find her quite annoying during interviews, like shes totally into herself. I don’t know how people don’t pick up personality traits like that. She sounds like she just inhaled helium before she lets out her un-talented crap sound.
