VIDA PRIVADA

Agora é praticamente oficial. As postagens de Kelly Phelan, via Twitter, deixam claro: ela e Urs Buhler estão namorando. As fotos não mentem! Felicidades ao casal!!

***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

= 410 ? ’410px’ : ‘auto’); } –>A norte-americana Kelly Phelan, ginasta e performer do show aquático Le Rêve, em Las Vegas, tem publicado fotos em suas contas no Facebook e no Twitter, mostrando sua intimidade com Urs Buhler. Como é sabido pelos fãs, o divo suíco sempre foi muito discreto quanto à sua vida íntima. Kelly, pelo visto, é extrovertida e não tem medo de exposição, fazendo questão de compartilhar com o público os detalhes de seu relacionamento com Urs. As postagens deixam explícito o relacionamento entre Urs e Kelly, mas estão longe de colocar um ponto final nas especulações sobre a vida amorosa do divo suíco. Até pouco tempo atrás, as matérias publicadas na mídia invariavelmente faziam menção à ex-maquiadora do Il Divo, Tania Rodney, como sendo mulher de Urs, e também que ambos são pais de uma menina, Billie. Urs Buhler até agora não se manifestou sobre seu suposto namoro com Kelly Phelan ou sobre qualquer outro assunto de sua vida amorosa.

****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Não há como  ficar indiferente. Urs Bühler é discreto e não fala de assuntos de sua intimidade em público.

Se o divo suíco é reservado, a imprensa não.

Matérias em jornais apresentam fotos e reportagens sobre um suposto romance  de Urs com a eslovaca Erika Barkolová.

Os fãs estão confusos, porque as notícias veiculadas na mídia até agora sempre noticiaram que Urs é casado com a ex-maquiadora do Il Divo, Tania Rodney e que o casal tem um filha, Billie, atualmente com 3 anos.

Abaixo, a matéria traduzida de uma publicação em uma  revista eslovaca, cujas fotos estão acima.

O solteiríssimo Carlos também não escapou do mexerico. Segundo a mesma reportagem, o divo espanhol estava muito bem acompanhado depois do concerto na Eslováquia.

Agradecimentos a Diane Perodeau, que compartilhou as imagens e a tradução para o inglês.

“Quartet pop opera artists  performers are from different countries of the world, to Slovakia has a particularly event plus. Their performances was great spectator interesting, and mainly female  in the audience admired by youngsters, even  have been impressed in addition to enthusiastic audiences at last week’s concert in Bratislava, in particular the views of beautiful Slovak ladies in their company to take care of them  in the night after a Romantic party. Moderator spicy splinters, Erika  charming Swiss Tenor Urs Bühler. Already in the past to address this by throwing them  compliments of a previous concert in Bratislava maintained contact with him. he is a nice guy and we’ve been together already in Vienna, she told us a few weeks ago the  Blonde. Even there were speculations that she spend the a weekend with him at a chalet in the French Alps. Now, after a concert in the capital city with him, ended the evening in a five-star hotel on the bank of the Danube. The luxury hotel in the romantic atmosphere of celebrating the hunk entered with Erika, she, a divorced mom of two daughters, it does not interfere with or that the  idol is married to a woman. However,  Erika denied that she had been in a hotel in a luxury limousine with Urs was not truth. I was at the concert with my mom, then we have a few words and went home. I was not in any  hotel. Her words are yet far from the truth as the Eskimo of the equator, as shown in our photos. Barkolová then with a blissful look on her face goes to a hotel elevator hand in hand with Urs. But she was not the only one Slovak who performed musician by night company. Succumbed to the lure of feminine tenderness in the evening and Carlos Marin, according to most experts voice Il Divo. Recently divorced Spanish baritone praised the beauty of Slovak girls already not only on stage but after midnight and left the hotel accompanied by a young leggy brunette.”

Urs Bühler, na entrevista abaixo, compara a atual turnê do Il Divo com as passadas e fala do que mudou na vida dele e da sua família.

O divo suíço enfatiza que não é mais possível que sua mulher Tania Rodney, maquiadora do Il Divo,  acompanhe o grupo em toda a turnê, como no passado, por causa da filha pequena do casal, Billie.

Disse também que o repertório atual é muito dramático, e talvez o público quisesse algo mais leve. O grupo resolveu mudar um pouco o estilo musical e evitar cair na mesmice, segundo ele.

Para Urs, a rotina de shows é exaustiva e nem tudo é divertido. Mas ele observa um aspecto positivo: esta é a quarta turnê mundial do Il Divo e eles agora encontram pessoas que já conheceram no passado e se sentem mais à vontade.

Urs falou que é muito boa a sensação de cantar com 40 músicos no palco.

E também comentou sobre os imitadores – outros grupos de cantores semelhantes – enfatizando o pioneirismo do Il Divo.

Confiram  (texto original em inglês):

ENTERTAINMENT Editor Gordon Barr catches up with Il Divo’s Swiss  tenor Urs Buhler ahead of the group’s long-awaited gig at the Metro Radio Arena  in Newcastle.

FOUR years ago almost to the day, Urs Buhler, one fourth of Il Divo, was in  the North East at a show with just 120 in the audience. When he arrives here  next week with the group, you can multiply that audience figure by 100.

For back in 2008, Urs was actually at the premiere of Pub Quiz at the Queen’s  Hall in Hexham.

The Swiss hunk had taken his seat unannounced to watch the world premiere of  the dark comedy set in the North East, and was soon laughing at the lines and  enjoying his first taste of anything resembling a pub quiz.

The play was written by Carina Rodney, of North Shields, whose sister Tania  was Il Divo’s hair and make-up artist … and also the partner of the tenor.

Since then the pair have had a baby girl, Billie, and she has changed their  lives.

“I remember Pub Quiz very well,” Urs tells me ahead of Il Divo’s gig at the  Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on Monday next week.

“How life has changed since then. Obviously Tania cannot travel with us like  she used to. When Billie was a little baby it was do-able but now it is too  complicated. We arrange it now and then. When in the UK it is easier.

“But when you are traveling into Asia, for example, every day you fly to a  different country and it’s a four-five-hour flight. It is not enjoyable or good  for a child.

“It’s hard being away from them and this world tour is the first time I have  experienced that. Tania has always been with us in the past. But I’m not touring  forever.”

That world tour has already taken them to Australia and the Far East, it’s  now the European leg and after that they head for the USA, Middle East and South  America.

“There’s a lot of travelling but it is great to be doing it,” admits Urs,  40.

“The highlight of the day is not the airport lounge, it’s the show. The rest  of it is exciting but it’s not always as enjoyable as you would wish.

“The great thing is it’s our fourth world tour and we now know most of the  places and remember the hotels we are coming to and we have people who remember  us, drivers and people like that.

“That gives it a completely different atmosphere than when you go out on a  world tour like that for the first time and everything is new and fresh. We  finished our last tour Christmas 2009 and in January 2010 we started discussing  the repertoire for the next album.

“It somehow has taken a very long time to put it together because we did not  want to go on repeating ourselves and take a few well- known covers and record  them again with the same producers.”

That new album is Wicked Game, and marked something of a turning point for Il  Divo. “We tried on quite a few songs a completely different approach, some are  based on classical instrumental pieces that songwriters have written lyrics  to.

“It gives a very interesting hybrid. It gives you a new song as such based on  existing music. It just makes it a bit more interesting for us than just, say,  taking a Mariah Carey cover and doing that.”

Also new for this tour is a 40-piece orchestra.

“That is great and it gives us a completely different feeling in performing  too, in recreating these big cinematic sounds in an arena,” says Urs.

“We love it. We were worried a little bit if it was a bit too dramatic for  some of our audience who might prefer it a bit lighter, but we do enjoy it.

“It brings the three of us who are opera singers back to those days when we  used to work only acoustically in opera houses with full orchestras. It’s a  great feeling.

“It is nice making music, but it is much nicer making music together with  other people.

“We now have 45 people on stage making music on stage together, which is  fantastic.

“You create an energy. You get in the same kind of bubble together and you  live and breathe these moments together. A wonderful experience.”

There have been many Il Divo imitators, but none have yet to match their  success.

“I think it might have to do with the fact that we were the first,” says Urs  modestly.

“I think it also has to do with the fact we are multi-national and very  different personalities and we have very different voices from each other. A lot  of people see that as a handicap but we see it as an absolute bonus as it makes  the end product so much richer and diverse.”

*******************************************************************************************************************************

Urs Buhler concedeu uma entrevista  ao programa “Glanz and Gloria”, da TV suíça.

Urs falou, em alemão, de sua vida pessoal.

Foi filmado, descontraído, em uma praça, e tocando guitarra em um loja de instrumentos musicais, em Zurique.

As falas de Urs foram intercaladas com as de um locutor, ao fundo.

Locutor: Este é Urs Bühler, tenor, como sabemos e, é assim que o conhecemos em uma loja de música em Zurique com sua paixão secreta. Ele ainda está apaixonado pela guitarra e, até agora. Quando era jovem ele era vocalista  e guitarrista de uma banda de heavy metal. Urs Bühler: Talvez seja um tipo de compensação. Porque se eu tocar não estou prejudicando ninguém, exceto os meus ouvidos. Sim, talvez seja uma espécie de dispersão da energia. Locutor: Com Il Divo, o tenor está viajando ao redor do mundo. Até agora eles venderam mais de 25 milhões de álbuns. O sucesso e sua vida hoje em dia são completamente diferentes do que na fase em era mais jovem. Urs Bühler: Não estou seguro de fazer concessões. Se tenho uma preocupação na vida é que espero ser inteligente o suficiente para cuidar de forma correta sobre o status financeiro em que cheguei. Locutor: Onde quer que o cara esperto de Lucerna vá com os seus 3 colegas os fãs estão entusiasmados – especialmente as mulheres. Portanto, o tenor  ri quando fala em retornar definitivamente para a Suíça. Urs Bühler: Vivi 25 anos em Willisau (Suíça) e eu nunca morei tanto tempo em outro lugar como aqui. Isso é algo que eu nunca vou e eu nunca iria querer apagar da minha cabeça. Influenciou quem eu sou e como eu sou. Locutor: O tenor vive feliz no casamento com sua esposa e sua filha de três anos em Londres. Mas ele não tem tempo suficiente para sua família, especialmente quando o pai de família está em turnê. Urs Bühler: Cheguei em um momento em que eu fecho a porta da casa e já sinto a falta deles ( a família). Locutor: A menina tem que ser paciente mais um mês até que seu pai esteja de volta – desta vez Il Divo é a família do tenor.

Foi publicada também uma outra entrevista em que Urs Buhler fala de sua paixão: os pássaros. E também de um sonho: dedicar-se à falcoaria.

Ele ama o falcão e a águia dourada e gostaria de no futuro, ter uma delas como animal de estimação.

A falcoaria é a arte de criar, treinar e cuidar de falcões e outras aves de rapina para a caça.

Esta prática milenar foi adotada pela nobreza e aristocracia no Extremo Oriente, Oriente Médio, Europa Medieval e Japão Feudal e, atualmente, é difundida por clubes e associações espalhados pelo mundo.

Pelo visto, Urs Buhler está, aos poucos, atualizando os fãs sobre sua vida pessoal e seus planos para o futuro.

Na matéria, que transcrevo abaixo, Urs fala que prentende se aposentar daqui a 10 anos, quando tiver 50 anos.

E é na sua fazenda, no sul da França,  que ele quer criar o seu falcão.

Urs Buhler é cheio de estilo!!

The operatic pop group rose to fame in 2004 with their eponymous debut album and are now a global phenomenon. Here, …their tenor Urs lets his dreams soar… My interest in birds comes from my father. I grew up in a little Swis…s village ne…ar Lucerne and my father was very much into nature. He would be out over the hills or through the forest, photographing flowers, picking mushrooms and looking at all the animals. From a very early age I went with him. He had a lot of books, including a German book about falconry which I read for the first time when I was about eight. From then on I was fascinated. A lot of people don’t know what falconry is. They think it is just being interested in birds whereas it actually means hunting with them. My interest had been dormant for a while until my girlfriend picked up on it and bought me a few books for my birthday and got me a proper falconry glove a few years ago. Unfortunately, it’s not possible for me to have my own bird at the moment. I don’t have the time and I travel too much. If you have horses or a dog you can have somebody else look after them, but birds are much more fragile. The type of bird you can have depends on the countryside you are in. I’ve got a property in the South of France with a bit of land. It’s big, open farming country with hedges and woods. The locals mostly hunt deer and wild boar which are much too big for falconry but there are grouse and quail and hares too so you would probably get a goshawk for that type of game. If you wanted to hunt with a large falcon you would need more open country. A couple years ago I held Europe’s biggest golden eagle at the falconry centre at Lightwater Valley in Yorkshire. It was bred in Germany for wolf-hunting. It would be my dream to have a golden eagle. I don’t think it’s possible in western Europe, though. A golden eagle, head to tail, is about 3 ft long with a wingspan of up to 10 ft. It’s got very powerful talons so it’s a very majestic, powerful, efficient animal and it’s about a foot away from your face. I am in awe of that. Its weight and size, power and speed, and the amazing eyesight it has… I find it incredibly impressive. Sometimes I have a problem with the whole hunting thing. When I’m in France, on my own land, and I see a hare, the last thing I think about is killing it, but if you hunt animals to eat that is fine. Some people hunt larks with a sparrowhawk. I don’t see the point. Why would you see how many larks you can kill? The relationship you have with a bird depends on its species. Some get ver, very tame. Harris hawks can follow you like dogs. You whistle for them, they come to your fist and won’t take food from anybody else. Like any animal you have, the more time you can spend with them the better the relationship will be. Birds are not very intelligent creatures, just very instinctive. I would want a bird that was very attached to me and I hope one day this dream will come true. I enjoy everything I do with Il Divo but I’d like to retire in about 10 years. By then I will be 50 and I would love to settle down and do everything I’ve never had the time for: have birds, horses, big dogs, and do all the outdoor things. The rest of the band don’t understand my passion. They just see me reading these books on the plane and think: “What’s that funny thing Urs is into?” I’ll get some time off next summer after we finish the American leg of our tour, and I plan to go to Scotland for a week for a falconry course. That will be spectacular.

Urs Bühler E Tania Rodney – Vídeo mostra mais do que desejam expor ao público?

Tania aparece com uma camiseta comprida e com listras grandes. A blusa escolhida ‘esconde’ uma barriga proeminente. A pessoa que fez o vídeo teve a intenção de mostrar Urs e Tania e a gravidez sobre a qual nada foi dito. Se não fossem imagens como esta e a foto do evento de 2009 em que Tania usava um vestido cinza de corte clássico e justo, mostrando uma barriga crescida, pergunto: alguém saberia dessa gravidez? Tania não é artista, não é uma pessoa pública e parece não querer ter sua vida privada exposta . Urs tampouco falou, até o momento, sobre sua suposta paternidade. Se assim agiu, é porque assim o quer.

Fame & Fortune: UK taxes drive Swiss opera star cuckoo

Urs Buhler, a tenor in Il Divo, pays as little as 15% tax in his own country — and also gets great public services. By Natalie Graham

//
//

<!–

–>

TENOR Urs Buhler, 34, is a member of Il Divo, the operatic quartet that performs popular romantic songs. Their first album, called Il Divo, sold 4m copies around the world and the second, Ancora, was released in November. They are expected to sing at this year’s football World Cup in Germany.In March and April, the group will play 12 dates in Britain as part of their world tour.

Buhler grew up in a village near Lucerne, Switzerland, where, at 20, he attended the Academy for School and Church Music. Five years later he studied voice at the Amsterdam Conservatory.

He spent seven years performing with the Netherlands Opera before being discovered by pop svengali Simon Cowell, who had searched out the four members of Il Divo over two years. The other singers are David Miller from America, Sébastien Izambard from France, and Carlos Marin from Spain.

When he is not touring, Buhler lives with his girlfriend, Valérie, near Lille, France.

How much money do you have in your wallet?

I don’t have a wallet. I always carry my money in my pocket. I have about £64 and €25 (£17). The English money will pay for my dinner tonight in London. I will find a nice Italian restaurant, but in Lucerne the same meal would be much cheaper.

Do you have any credit cards?

I have Dutch, French and English credit cards, but I only use them for bigger purchases. I mainly use cash cards.

Are you a saver or spender?

Definitely I am a saver, but if I see something expensive and I want it, I will spend the money on it. I bought two guitars in America for $4,000 (£2,250) each because I love guitars and they are just beautiful.

How much did you earn last year?

It was just over £100,000. For 18 months between leaving the conservatory and joining Il Divo, I was a professional tenor. During that time I was earning between £70,000 and £80,000 a year.

I did not need Il Divo for the money, and I know that Carlos had contracts for much more than I did. All four of us had solo careers and were doing well internationally. Carlos in fact had difficulty in deciding to do this.

For me, though, the timing was perfect. I saw Il Divo as a big adventure to get a glimpse of the pop world and a kind of fame you would never achieve in classical music.

Have you ever been really hard up?

As there were five children at home, there was never much spare money. Since the age of 13 I worked in the school holidays in every job imaginable, from carpentry to bricklaying and driving a fork-lift truck.

I was in the most trouble financially after I passed my audition for Il Divo in 2003. I joined the band in November but we didn’t start recording until the following April.

I had already cancelled all my engagements in opera and classical music and had no income for about six months. I was living in Holland on my savings. My situation was so bad I even had to borrow money from my girlfriend.

What is the most lucrative work you have done? Did you use the fee for something special?

Signing the record deal with Il Divo in May 2004. We got a first advance on signing, then a second advance on completing the album. We have produced three albums, two for the initial record deal and a Christmas album for America, which is separate.

I put that money into the bank and left most of it there, but I did change my style of living a little. I started going to restaurants and I did not worry whether a dish on the menu cost £10 or £30. And I bought my girlfriend a Harley-Davidson motorbike for her birthday.

Do you own a property?

I don’t personally own a property, but my family in Switzerland own several, as do my girlfriend’s family in France. We live in her grandmother’s house, which we consider our own. I can’t wait to buy my own place. I am saving as much money as I can to do so.

Do you have a pension, or other retirement plan?

A banda de Urs foi formada em 1974 e terminou em 1990 com várias formações. * 

Formed: 1974 in Zurich, Switzerland

Disbanded: 1990
Styles: Hard Rock, Heavy Metal
Group Members: Freddy Steady, Jürg Naegeli, Marc Storace, Fernando Von Arb, Chris Von Rohr, Tommy Kiefer
Biography
A typical mid-’80s Euro-metal band from Switzerland, Krokus formed back in the ’70s as a symphonic rock outfit modeled on the likes of Yes and ELP, switching to metal when the band’s former direction proved unprofitable. The hard rock lineup included Maltese-born vocalist Marc Storace, guitarists Fernando Von Arb and Tommy Kiefer, bassist Chris Von Rohr (originally the lead vocalist), and drummer Freddy Steady. Kiefer was replaced by roadie Mark Kohler in 1982. Their brand of metal relies heavily on AC/DC and the Scorpions, with simple, radio-friendly riffs and repeatedly chanted choruses. Their biggest hit was a cover of Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out.” The band has undergone several personnel changes, and their career started to go downhill in 1985. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide

*******************************************************************************

Tradução de entrevista de entrevista de Urs.  Ele realmente fascina pela  capacidade de expressar suas opiniões. E parece entender bastante a respeito do sexo oposto! (Esclareço q não sou especialista em traduções, ok?)

Qual é a mulher de melhor idade? A melhor idade da mulher é a mesma que a do homem que é 30-35 anos e mais velhas. A personalidade já se desenvolveu e o equilíbrio é encontrado. É mais fácil se envolver com as pessoas com mais de trinta anos, quando começam a saber quem são e o que querem. E isso faz uma mulher interessante. As mulheres jovens não estão interessadas em mim o suficiente, porque eles têm modelos e ainda estão em busca de sua identidade. Quando eu olho para trás em meus relacionamentos, a maioria das minhas amigas são da minha idade ou mais velhas. Eu tive uma mulher que era mais de dez anos mais velha que eu. Rugas não fazem a mulher pouco atraente e não me intimidam.

O que tem sido comum nas mulheres que amou? Não há realmente de concreto um denominador comum, há castanhas, loiras, baixas, altas e de todos os tamanhos entre elas. Talvez, o que é comum é que entraram nesta fase da minha vida quando eu perdi o endereço. Por natureza, sou atraído por uma mulher que conhece seu lugar no universo. Atualmente estou muito equilibrado no meu relacionamento. Eu e minha namorada estamos na mesma terra e na vida é, sem dúvida, melhor viver juntos do que sozinhos. Minha mulher ideal deve ser vista como um exemplo, do que ser charmosa e bonita. Gosto de mulheres que se parecem com mulheres.

O que seu pai lhe ensinou sobre as mulheres? Eu realmente nunca tive muita preocupação com discussões filosóficas sobre a mulher ou como lidar com os meus pais. Quando ainda era jovem  e então tive o meu coração partido e no fim de um relacionamento senti como se fosse o fim do mundo, minha mãe costumava dizer que não me preocupasse, que existirão outras. E ela estava certa. Eu não defendo a idéia romântica de que está correto que cada pessoa só tem uma pessoa. É um absurdo total. Eu posso ser feliz com muitas, muitas mulheres diferentes e sempre encontrar uma nova alma gêmea.

Se eu tivesse um filho, o que você ensina sobre as mulheres? Eu enfatizaria que é importante se conhecer e encontrar o equilíbrio dentro de si. Portanto, quando se acha miserável, ninguém pode ser feliz. É um mito que tem de trabalhar duro para o seu relacionamento e comprometimento. A relação deve fluir em si mesma. E eu não quero dizer que os dois sempre têm que concordar com as coisas. Eu vivo numa relação em que tudo isso é possível. Eu também quero ensinar a meu filho que você tem que ser honesto com você mesmo e não ter medo de ser sozinho.

O que acha que é uma mulher sensual? Em geral o que é erótico combina formas do corpo e menos roupa, mas acho atraente quando existe espaço para a imaginação. Eu olho para esta questão de um ângulo diferente. A mulher faz a sua personalidade ser sensual. Não há apelo sexual de per si na maneira de uma mulher. A maneira de falar, o tom de voz e como uma mulher põe as suas palavras também podem ser sensuais. Está na maneira como uma mulher me toca, em como elas se movimentam, ou gestos com as mãos – podem fazer isso de muitas maneiras. Também olhar com cuidado a forma como uma mulher, por exemplo, põe seu copo de vinho no mesa.

Qual é o comportamento feminino? Todas as delicadezas são femininas, é uma maneira de lidar com as situações e se acalmar. Você pode relaxar na companhia de uma mulher que está se comportando calmamente. Há suavidade maternal em minha própria mãe. Todos os tipos de dureza e som me perturbam. Se uma mulher tem muita energia pode ser muito charmoso. Por outro lado não é feminino.

Quando você perde o controle de seu carro com uma mulher? Provavelmente nunca, sou basicamente calmo. Eu perdi meu temperamento calmo duas vezes: uma vez com um homem que ficou zangado e uma vez com minha irmã que me irritou. Eu ia ficar chateado se eu fosse cobrado por algo que de que sou inocente. Isso também me deixa triste. Eu também perco a paciência se eu sou tratado como um idiota ou se não é dado o valor que me pertence como pessoa.

O que as mulheres devem aprender com os homens? As mulheres devem manter a calma, analisar os problemas e procurar soluções em vez de pânico. Uma vez tive uma namorada que corajosamente virava a mesa quando algo estava corroendo nosso relacionamento. Eu aprendi muito com ela. As mulheres são mais intuitivas que os homens, não práticas.

Por outro lado: Qual é o melhor elogio que recebeu de uma mulher? R: Claro que disse “eu te amo!”

O maior erro em suas relações com as mulheres? Eu deveria ter percebido quando terminar o relacionamento, porque eu não estava me esforçando e não tinha futuro. De alguma forma eu estava dependendo dele, pode não se atrevia a sair fora para meu próprio bem, por medo da solidão. Então eu estava com medo da idéia de construir uma vida tranquila para mim. Eu queria evitar o aborrecimento “do sofá, que pertence a você, eu vou tomar a mesa “, e assim sucessivamente.

O que você não pode perdoar em uma mulher? Se uma mulher me faz sentir inferior. Eu não irei abandoná-la, mas eu nunca vou perdoar isso.

Mentiras, as mulheres acreditam? A: Outros homens me disseram que quando você nega tudo e não tem há provas, não se pode insistir em que você está mentindo. Sério, eu acho que é extremamente prejudicial, se o que eu digo está em dúvida e  estou sob uma lupa. Eu sou honesto por completamente. Eu não gosto de mentira, a honestidade é a melhor maneira de viver e seguir em frente. Mentiras têm pernas curtas, e acabará por ser apanhado.

É possível ser amigo de uma mulher? É perfeitamente possível por um período de tempo, mas acho que uma amizade sempre leva ao contato físico precoce. Ou pelo menos, há um grande risco para o fazer. No entanto, em minha vida houve uma vez uma mulher cuja companhia eu gostava imensamente, mas eu nunca estava interessado nela sexualmente.
As mulheres são mais infiéis que os homens? Eu estou um pouco inclinado em direção a esse tipo de pensamento. No entanto, em minha vida há apenas uma mulher com cuja fidelidade eu me importo e eu não poderia cuidar além do que está acontecendo ao meu redor.
Você já chorou por uma mulher? Ah, sim. Não muito frequentemente, mas já chorei. A última vez foi há cinco anos e tem a ver com o fim de um relacionamento.
O que não faz por uma mulher? Eu não vou mudar minha personalidade. A mulher tem que aceitar o que sou. Eu tentei, por vezes, atenuar um pouco das minhas características que aborreciam a minha namorada, mas ela sequer tentou se livrar dos seus, num esforço conjunto. Quando o relacionamento acabou, segui outros rumos. E agora eu não estou falando sobre assuntos cotidianos como a forma como o papel higiénico tem de ficar.

Que tipo de situação, você não quer sua mulher o veja? Eu não quero que minha namorada me veja quando eu estou sendo fotografado com uma fã. Embora as situações sejam completamente inocentes, ela pode ainda ficar magoada. Minha namorada anterior escalou as paredes quando viu a minha mão envolvida em torno da cintura de uma fã, no momento da foto. Estas situações ocorrem por aí afora e não há realmente nada de especial sobre elas. No entanto, existem fãs que se aproximam de mim em alguns eventos musicais. Isso é realmente difícil.

Quanto tempo você pode ficar sem a companhia de uma mulher? Dez minutos! Bem, o mais rapidamente possível. Eu tento me manter afastado períodos tão curtos quanto possível. Minha namorada está comigo o tanto quanto possível.

RESUMINDO: URS ENTENDE MUIIIIIIIITOOOOOOO DE MULHERES!!!!!!!!

Fãs espanholas falam sobre a gravidez de Tania, que o bebê nasceu na Suíca, que Urs comprou uma casa lá, que estava sendo substituída em seu trabalho junto ao Il Divo por outra mulher ( e que por causa disso o cabelo dos divos estava diferente) e que não sabiam se era definitivo o afastamento do seu emprego. Dizem também que o bebê é menino e que teria nascido em dezembro (depois houve alterações nestas informações). Falam que Urs deu uma entrevista a um jornal alemão confirmando sua paternidade. Detalhe: enfatizam que Tania é muito gentil com as fãs.

Segun una entrevista dada a una revista alemana el pasado 6 noviembre, donde Urs Buhler decia que su novia Tania estaba de 8 meses y segun nuestros calculos, el Primer hijo de Tania y Urs ya esta entre nosotros, si bien no hay ninguna confirmacion, seguramente nunca lo hagan, nosotros podemos confirmales que Tania ha tenido los primeros dias del mes de diciembre un varon (segun rumores que se escuchan en España).El bebe habria nacido en suiza, cerca del monte Pilatus donde se encontraba la hermana de Urs acompañando a Tania junto a los familiares Rodney, familiares de la mama mas envidiada del mundo,En Suiza los Buhler han comprado una casa que antiguamente pertenecia a un amigo de Urs.El grupo Il divo ya cuenta con nueva estilista que reemplaza a Tanya en su trabajo, el reemplazo viajo con ellos a partir de su viaje a Japon, ya habran visto los cambios en los cabellos de los integrantes del cuarteto Il divo.

No se sabe si este reeplazo sera definitivo o solo por estos primeros meses hasta que Tania y el bebe pasen estos primeros momentos, si es asi podremos ver en las giras la familia Buhler a pleno.

Esperamos que Tania y el bebe este en perfectas condiciones, les deseamos toda la felicidad del mundo, esperamos poder ver fotos del nuevo bebe, que seguramente sera muy bellos igual a sus padres.

Si bien tenemos miles de preguntas, es dificl que ellos den informacion ya que son mu celosos de su vida privada. Cuando se publicaron las primeras fotos de Tania embarazada ( exclusiva de Il divo press), fue un shock para muchas fans que nunca han podido aceptar la eleccion de Urs,de hecho se recibieron muchos comentarios de menosprecio hacia la mujer elegida Urs, sin embargo quienes han podido tratar con ella, aseguran que Tania es muy amable y siempre esta atenta a ayudar a las fans.

Il divo press te recomienda que piensen en lo siguiente…

El fanatismo limita la libertad, empobrece el psiquismo, incomunica, limita la autocrítica y el afán de superación, reduce la riqueza de matices de la vida y en muchos casos desemboca en la negación de la dignidad humana de los otros. Fonte :http://ildivopress.blogspot.com/

Urs e Tania – a polêmica continua…

Urs é, sem dúvida, o mais polêmico dos divos, pq resolveu preservar sua privacidade. Seu relacionamento com a maquiadora profissional do Il Divo, Tania Rodney, desperta a curiosidade dos fãs. Embora ambos não falem a respeito, fontes extraoficiais confirmam que têm (ou tiveram) um relacionamento, que Tania esteve grávida e que teve um bebê. Urs não falou a respeito de ser o pai dessa criança. Observo que uma única foto oficial do casal foi publicada nos órgãos da mídia em geral, mas não publicaram nenhum texto a respeito. Ver imagem em tamanho grande Conforme entrevistas reproduzidas aqui, Urs  é uma pessoa que não tem medo de falar o que sente, o que pensa e do seu passado. Pelo contrário. Sempre expôs suas opiniões e falou de sua vida  profissional e particular de uma forma detalhada, o que é raro no meio artístico. Se ele não fala explicitamente de seu relacionamento com Tânia é pq quer preservar sua privacidade. Isto significa que é uma pessoa sensata e que sabe lidar com a fama. Mas observo que as imagens, por si mesmas, mostram que existe, entre eles, mais do que uma relação profissional.

*******************************************************************************************************************************

Urs e Tania – atualizações extraoficiais indicam que vivem juntos

Segundo  recente atualização  na enciclopédia pública virtual, a Wikipédia, Urs Bühler e Tanya Rodney estão vivendo juntos em Londres e tem uma filha de 1 ano.

Em entrevista, Urs conta um pouco de sua história

Friday, May 01, 2009

Urs Bühler on the phone from Paris WHEN YOU picture the members of Il Divo, the reigning kings of that rococo musical hybrid known as “popera,” it’s always with a classy sheen. The image is one of Armani suits, perfectly coiffed hair, and a regal air, in front of some suitably noble background, like Roman columns or a luxurious mahogany trimmed parlour. That’s why it seemed a tad jarring when the group’s tenor Urs Bühler included John Deere and Stihl in his dedications on its new CD The Promise. All of a sudden you picture the suave Swiss singer riding a tractor and waving a chainsaw while wearing a tuxedo and crooning O Sole Mio. “Yes, that’s exactly it,” laughs Bühler on the phone from Paris. “But I do have a bit of property down in the south of Europe, a summer house with a bit of land around, and it needs quite a bit of attention. That’s what I’m doing in the summer normally, when I get a bit of a holiday. “And I like John Deere and Stihl because it’s quality equipment, it just works fantastic and gets the job done.” At the moment, Bühler is spending more time with a microphone in his hand than power tools, as he and his cohorts — Spanish baritone Carlos Marin, American tenor David Miller and French vocalist Sebastien Izambard — continue to tour the world following the release of The Promise in November. On Tuesday night Il Divo kicks off its North American tour at the Halifax Metro Centre, returning here for the second time in two years. Since debuting in 2005, Il Divo has released five albums and two concert DVDs, plus inspired a pair of books, making it look like the quartet’s manager Simon Cowell has been cracking the whip non-stop, but Bühler says they did reach a bit of a breaking point over a year ago. “We had about eight months where we did practically nothing at all; a corporate show here and there and stuff like that,” says Bühler. We’d nip into the studio to record the occasional track, but we had at least half a year off before we really started to work on The Promise. “That was great, we needed it. Before that we’d been working for three-and-a-half years non-stop, and we were all a bit exhausted.” Even Cowell knows better than to kill the geese that lay the golden notes, and trained voices need their down time to decompress from stress of performing nightly and travelling daily. “It’s true, especially in Europe, travelling becomes very draining when it seems you’re going to a different country every day,” he says. “You can’t relax straight after the show, you actually want to go to sleep and rest up for the next day’s performance, but with the adrenalin and everything you can’t get to sleep before two or three in the morning. That can get quite nerve-wracking when you have several days of that. “But I never consider what we do as work. You travel around the world and you sing, and yeah, that can be physically . . . an effort, but you stand in front of the people and you make them feel good, and when the four of us are standing there on stage together you can feel it’s a good thing. “It’s less about thinking ‘I need to go to work,’ or ‘I need some free time now.’ ” When he does have free time, Bühler, whose father was a carpenter, keeps an eye out for antiques, a passion that world travel can only help feed, as he gets a chance to check out the offerings of dealers in some of the oldest cities in the world. But he’s not a hoarder; instead it’s about picking the items that are just right. “I bought a house about one-and-a-half-years ago, and before that I just had a nine-foot square storage locker in London,” he explains. “I had no furniture, no cutlery, and then I bought this house, which was completely redone, but I had to get new light fittings and all that kind of stuff. “I only wanted to get stuff that I really loved; I didn’t want to buy items just because I needed them. I still haven’t got a dining table because I haven’t found the one that I want. It’s nice with all this travelling because since I’m not at home it doesn’t bother me, and being in all these different cities I can keep my eyes open for stuff that I like.” The eye for fine antiques matches the Il Divo image, but Bühler’s musical past indicates an even broader musical palette, with a background that includes rock as well as his well-trained vocalising. The 37-year-old’s resume includes a heavy metal band called Conspiracy in his teenage years and he’s learned a variety of instruments since first developing an interest in music at the age of five. “I don’t have any professional ambitions on electric guitar,” he explains. “It’s annoying, but there will be a time to play these things, and if not that means I’m busy otherwise and I’ll be happy as well. It’s alright, I enjoy these instruments very much, and even if I can’t devote myself to them as much as I’d like, every time I pick up a guitar I still have fun with it. That’s what it’s about for me … I just want to rock out.”a * AMADEUS at 1:23 AM labels music

Fâ anônimo fala sobre Urs e Tania (veja no final do comentário)

The guys’ girl friends (extraído do fórum: http://community.livejournal.com/ildivo_daily/96322.html  ) (Anônimo) 2008-02-03 03:05 pm UTC (link) In response to desp_houseboy’s words …I may be wrong, but the last I heard was that David has a girlfriend by the name of Sarah. I could be wrong though, so don’t quote me on this!!!As for Carlos, he’s married to Geraldine of course, and Seb is engaged to Australian gal Renée, and I’ve heard Urs has had a girlfriend since the group formed, but I have absolutely no idea what her name is. Hope this helps!Yes ~ you are right, Seb IS engaged to Renee and David’s girlfriend IS called Sarah (Sarah Joy actually). There are many lovely pics of both of them, in the Official Il Divo Forum. Sarah Joy is in a 3 girl singing group herself and they are called The Three Graces.

As for Urs … I understand that he ISN’T with his original girlfriend (Valerie) , who he was with when he first joined Il Divo, but is now with Tanya Rodney – the band’s own make up artist. There’s no mistaking Tanya, as she is the ‘Rock Chic’ type of woman, with blonde hair and dark eyebrows. She is also is never far away from her man ( Urs), so can be spotted on almost every pic posted in the Official Forum!! (Mostly ‘airport’ pics)

Most of their GFs seem real nice, and always have a smile & something nice ready to say to the guy’s fans, when they meet them . But ….. Tanya however …… nothing as yet. Go on Tanya … GIVE US A SMILE. Afterall you ARE the envy of everyone, you being ‘the cat who got the cream’ and all !!!!!

Sobre a pequenina Billie (Wilhelmenia seria seu verdadeiro nome?)

Embora o nascimento da filha de Urs e Tanya não tenha sido oficialmente anunciado, não tendo o divo feito nenhum comentário a respeito até agora (talvez para preservar a privacidade da criança que, segundo fontes não oficiais, completou 1 aninho em janeiro de 2010), a pequenina Billie, assim como os gêmeos de Seb, Luca e Rose, já são famosos comos os pais. As fãs japonesas foram mais além, questionando sobre Billie ser o nome verdadeiro ou apelido. Uma fã lembrou que existe uma cantora lírica que se chama Wilhelmenia  e que este seria o verdadeiro nome da menina, porque Urs é bastante conservador, na opinião dela. Não sei se a fã viajou na maionese ou não, mas achei interessante e resolvi registrar aqui.

***********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

O  comentário abaixo, na WikAnswers, merece destaque.

Gostei do texto, porque fala do  respeito que devemos ter pela privacidade de nossos ídolos. Ou seja, respeitar suas decisões na vida privada e no caso do divos, suas esposas e supostas namoradas. É preciso saber separar as coisas. Claro que podemos fazer brincadeiras . Mas são diferentes de difamações. Temos que zelar para não atingir as pessoas que nossos ídolos amam, certo? Isto é um bumerangue que se volta contra quem faz comentários maldosos, com o intuito de difamação. Sou muito brincalhona, mas sei distinguir as coisas. E acredito que a maioria dos fãs também. O autor da resposta  na WikAnswers, conforme texto que transcrevo abaixo, dá uma dica: não confundir realidade e imaginação.

Why are urs buhler fans so resentful of tania rodney? Traduzindo: Por que as fãs de Urs estão tão ressentidas com Tania Rodney?

Learn about beliefs, humanitarian efforts & more. Watch online videos Probably because they get confused between reality and imagination and believe they could of had a chance with Urs They forget that Urs like anyone else has the right to choose who he goes out with has kids with ect..I read a lot of stuff about Tania not going around constantly with a smile on her face like some sort of idiot like in the photos at the vista party which were in my mind no dought taken with a telescopic lense by a ‘fan’ and Tania didnt realise. I also read that Tania doesn’t go around interacting with fans of her partner well maybe shes shy and then again maybe she doesnt want to thats her choice isnt it? Same short of stuff went around about Sebastiens wife. Carlos’s wife and David’s partner seem to be excepted Why carn’t People have respect for Urs and Tania and do the same???

I feel his fans don’t trust her. They do not want to see him hurt and they feel she may have entrapped him. She is pregnant and no ring, so it doesn’t look good for her. But as I see it, he is a big boy now, so you play, you pay. Plenty of women have used entrappment to get the man they want and sometimes it works. With his history, it may backfire on her. Only time will tell.

i totally agree with the first comment. Tania is a lovely women and wonderful to talk to.She doesn’t go around interacting with Urs’ fans because when he’s at an Il Divo event it is HE who in the limelight not her and at those functions she is is technically part of the crew. Whether or not she wears a ring or not has no meaning now of days. Wedding rings are only an outward show of commitment, the commitment of the heart is the one that matters. I think ‘fans’ should start being ‘fans’ and stop being critics. If you are a fan you love the artist no matter what they do. These negative reactions are no doubt why Urs has kept his personal life a secret for so long.

Confissões de Urs

Em surpreendente entrevista publicada em espanhol, Urs Bühler confessa gostar de mulheres mais velhas e maduras, fala de suas impressões sobre o sexo feminino, de seus ex-relacionamentos e faz declarações que revelam sua forte personalidade. Fonte: http://ildivopress.blogspot.com/

: ¿Cuál es la mujer mejor edad? A: Mujer de la mejor edad es la misma que la del hombre, que es de 30-35 años en adelante. Luego de la personalidad ya ha desarrollado y el equilibrio se ha encontrado. Es más fácil asociar a las personas de más de treinta, ya que comienzan a saber quiénes son y lo que quieren. Y tal hace una mujer interesante. Las mujeres jóvenes tienen bastante nunca me interesó porque tienen modelos de rol y la identidad aún en fase de búsqueda. Cuando miro hacia atrás en mis relaciones, la mayoría de mis novias han sido de mi edad o mayores. He de una mujer que fue de más de diez años mayor que yo. Las arrugas no hacen a una mujer poco atractiva y no me intimidan en lo más mínimo.

Q: ¿Cuál ha sido común en las mujeres que han amado? A: No hay realmente concretas nominador común, hay morenas, rubias, de corto, alto y todos los tamaños entre ellos. Tal vez es común que siempre han instalado en esa etapa de mi vida cuando he perdido la dirección. Por naturaleza, he sido atraído por una mujer que ha conocido su lugar en este universo. Actualmente estoy muy equilibrado y en mi relación. Yo y mi novia son de la misma tierra, y la vida es, sin duda, mejor juntos que solos. Mi sueño mujer no tiene que ver como un modelo para ser encantador y hermoso. Me gustan las mujeres que parecen las mujeres.Q: ¿Qué ha enseñado tu padre acerca de las mujeres? R: Yo realmente no han llevado a cabo muy discusiones filosóficas sobre la mujer o cómo tratar con mis padres. Cuando, como un hombre joven de vez en cuando me rompió mi corazón y el final de una relación sentí como si fuera el fin del mundo, mi mamá solía decir que no te preocupes, habrá otras nuevas. Y ella tenía razón. Yo no firmar la romántica idea de que para cada persona sólo hay una persona correcta. Es absurdo total. No puedo ser realmente feliz con muchas, muchas mujeres diferentes y siempre encontrar una nueva alma gemela.Q: Si tuviera un hijo, ¿qué le enseñan acerca de la mujer? A: Me hacen hincapié en que es importante encontrar a ti mismo y encontrar el equilibrio dentro de ti. Por lo tanto, si es miserable, nadie le puede hacer feliz. Es un mito que debe trabajar duro para su relación y el compromiso. La relación debe ser fluida en sí mismo. Y no me refiero a que siempre tienen que ponerse de acuerdo sobre las cosas. Yo vivo en esa relación que todo esto es posible. Yo también enseñar a mi hijo que usted tiene que ser honesto con usted y no debe tener miedo de estar solo.Q: ¿Cómo una mujer erótica parece? A: En general lo que es erótico se combinan las formas del cuerpo y menos ropa, pero me parece atractiva cuando se ha dejado un margen para la imaginación. Me veo en este asunto desde un ángulo diferente. De la mujer hace que su personalidad erótica. Hay sex-appeal en la forma en que una mujer lleva a sí misma. La forma de hablar, el tono de la voz y cómo una mujer pone sus palabras también se puede erotic.There erotismo en la manera en cómo una mujer me toca, en su manera de mover o cómo los gestos con sus manos – también puedes hacerlo que de tantas maneras. También ver cuidadosamente cómo una mujer, por ejemplo, establece su copa de vino sobre la mesa.Q: ¿Cuál es el comportamiento femenino? A: Todo tipo de sofness es femenino, si es una forma para hacer frente a situaciones de calma o abajo. Puede relajarse en compañía de una mujer que se está comportando sofly. Hay suavidad maternal en mi propia madre. Todo tipo de dureza y sonoridad me perturban. Si una mujer tiene mucho de la energía, que puede ser muy encantador. Cussing por otro lado no es femenino.Q: ¿Cuándo usted pierde el control de su auto con una mujer? R: Probablemente nunca, estoy básicamente en calma. He perdido mi temperamento dos veces: una vez que se enfadó en un hombre, y la otra vez que mi hermana me molesta. Me gustaría recibir si me molesto fue acusado de algo que yo estoy de inocentes. Que también me hacen triste. También quiero perder mi temperamento, si yo era tratada como una idiota o si no se le dio el valor que me pertenece a mí como persona.Q: ¿Qué debería aprender las mujeres de los hombres? A: Las mujeres deben mantener la calma, analizar los problemas y procurar soluciones en lugar de malditos a cabo. Una vez tuve una novia que con valentía que el gato se levantó sobre la mesa cuando algo se royendo en nuestra relación. Aprendí mucho de ella. Las mujeres son más intuitivas que los hombres, los hombres por otro lado más práctico.Q: ¿Cuál es el mejor cumplido que ha recibido de una mujer? A: Por supuesto que he dicho “Te amo!”Q: Su más grande error en sus relaciones con las mujeres? A: Señor Presidente: se han dado cuenta de poner fin a la relación porque no trabajo y no tenía ningún futuro. De alguna manera me estaba colgando en ella, tal vez no se atrevió a tirón fuera de mí mismo para el bien por el temor de la soledad. Entonces yo tenía miedo de la idea de construir una vida en paz, por mi propia cuenta. Quería evitar la molestia de sofá que le pertenece a usted, voy a tomar la mesa “y así sucesivamente.Q: ¿Qué no se puede perdonar a una mujer? A: Si una mujer me hace sentir inferior. No puedo salir de ella, pero nunca voy a perdonar eso.Q: Mentiras creen en la mujer? A: Otros hombres me han dicho que mientras usted negar todos y no hay imágenes como prueba, no se puede insistir en que usted está mintiendo. En serio, creo que es extremadamente perjudicial si lo que digo está en duda y estoy sometida a una lupa. Soy honesto a través de y mediante. No me gusta mentir, la honestidad es la mejor manera de vivir y acerca de ir. Las mentiras tienen pistas cortas, que en última instancia quedar atrapados.Q: ¿Es posible ser tan amigos con una mujer? R: Es totalmente posible para un período de tiempo, pero creo que una amistad ya siempre conduce a contacto físico antes de tiempo. O, al menos, hay un gran riesgo para ello. Sin embargo, en mi vida fue una vez una mujer cuya compañía he disfrutado inmensamente, pero yo nunca estaba interesado en ella sexualmente.Q: ¿Están las mujeres más infieles que los hombres? A: Soy un poco inclinado hacia este tipo de pensamiento. Sin embargo, en mi vida sólo hay una mujer cuya fidelidad me importa y yo no podía menos de atención de lo que está sucediendo a mi alrededor.Q: ¿Alguna vez has llorado por una mujer? A: Oh sí. No muy a menudo, pero tengo. La última vez fue hace cinco años y que tiene que ver con poner fin a una relación.Q: ¿Qué no lo hace para una mujer? A: No voy a cambiar mi personalidad. Una mujer tiene que aceptar que me lo estoy. He intentado a veces para amortiguar algunas de mis características que han molestado a mi novia o que incluso han tratado de deshacerse de ellos althogether. Cuando la relación ha terminado, he ido a mi viejo maneras. Y no estoy hablando ahora acerca de los asuntos cotidianos como la forma en que rollo de papel higiénico tiene que ser.Q: ¿En qué tipo de situación, ¿no le quieres que tu señora a ver usted? A: No quiero mi novia a verme cuando estoy siendo fotografiados con un ventilador. A pesar de que son perfectamente inocentes situaciones, que todavía podría lastimar. Mi novia anterior subió las paredes cuando ella me vio mi mano envolver alrededor de un ventilador de la cintura para el momento de disparar la foto. Estas situaciones pertenecen a la empresa y no hay realmente nada especial en ellos. Sin embargo, hay fans que me enfoque en algunos otros efectos que musical. Eso es realmente difícil.Q: ¿Cuánto tiempo puedes estar sin la compañía de una mujer? A: Diez minutos! Bueno, tan poco como sea posible. Trato de hacer la separación períodos tan cortos como sea posible. Mi novia está conmigo en giras tanto como sea posible.

Urs Bühler

Urs Toni Bühler (Willisau, Cantão de Lucerna, Suíça; 19 de julho de 1971) é um cantor e tenor clássico suíço. Atualmente é integrante do mundialmente consagrado grupo Il Divo.

Sua formação musical começou desde seus cinco anos, quando Bühler começou a cantar em um coral e também aprendeu a tocar violino, clarinete, piano, guitarra e bateria. Sua carreira musical, porém, começou quando ele tinha quinze anos em um gênero totalmente diferente do canto lírico, sendo membro de uma banda cover e mais tarde, aos seus 17 anos, vocalista de uma banda de heavy metal chamada “Conspiração”, em Lucerna. Ao mesmo tempo, ele já estava recebendo aulas de música na Academia de Música da Escola e Igreja. Seu progresso no campo o levou a mover-se para Amsterdã, na Holanda, onde estudou sua voz no “Conservatório Sweelink” com Udo Reinemann, um conhecido barítono alemão. Sob a aulas particulares de tenor sueco Gösta Winbergh, membro da Royal Opera de Estocolmo, e o tenor francês Christian Papis, Urs enriqueceu o seu repertório clássico. Ele cantava no coro da ópera holandesa e até mesmo realizou uma temporada no Festival de Salzburgo, sob a direção de Claudio Abbado. Urs gastou os últimos sete anos nos Países Baixos, antes de seu compromisso com o Il Divo, cantando em oratórios e permormances com a Opera Holandesa Gezelschap (GE).

      Agradeço a visita de todos que prestigiam este blogue. Observo que as páginas que contêm informações, notícias, entrevistas e matérias relacionadas ao Il Divo estão com o texto desconfigurado. Isto ocorreu porque eu comecei o blogue com um design pré-definido e depois resolvi escolher um outro. O tema gráfico tem uma página principal muito estreita e parte dos textos ficou ilegível. Não tive tempo para corrigir este defeito. Peço desculpas. Il Divo é representativo de um mix de  charme, carisma, beleza e talento e isto certamente não seria possível de harmonizar se não fosse muito trabalho e determinação. E eu optei em fazer este blogue em um ano sabático, quase sem notícias sobre o grupo, porque a boa música transcende aos fatos. Beijos, Thanks to all who honor of visiting this blog. I note that pages containing information, news, interviews and articles related to Il Divo are mangled with the text. This happened because I started the blog with a predetermined design and then decided to choose another. The graphical theme has a very narrow main page and part of the texts was unreadable. I have not had time to correct this defect. I apologize. Il Divo is representative of a mix of charm, charisma, beauty and talent, and it certainly would not be possible to harmonize if it was not hard work and determination. And I opted to do this blog on a gap year, almost no news about the group, because good music transcends the facts. Kisses,

      Seja bem-vinda, Fátima e outros visitantes!Este blog é feito de amor e tenacidade, bem temperado com a mais pura paixão. Quanto ao Urs e sua banda de heavy metal, temos que dar um “desconto”. Ele era muito jovem e todo rapaz quer ter uma banda de rock! Ele realizou esse sonho juvenil e hoje está aí, ainda jovem, mas certamente mais amadurecido e com um currículo musical invejável.

Urs Bühler, na entrevista abaixo, compara a atual turnê do Il Divo com as passadas e fala do que mudou na vida dele e da sua família.

O divo suíço enfatiza que não é mais possível que sua mulher Tania Rodney, maquiadora do Il Divo,  acompanhe o grupo em toda a turnê, como no passado, por causa da filha pequena do casal, Billie.

Disse também que o repertório atual é muito dramático, e talvez o público quisesse algo mais leve. O grupo resolveu mudar um pouco o estilo musical e evitar cair na mesmice, segundo ele.

Para Urs, a rotina de shows é exaustiva e nem tudo é divertido. Mas ele observa um aspecto positivo: esta é a quarta turnê mundial do Il Divo e eles agora encontram pessoas que já conheceram no passado e se sentem mais à vontade.

Urs falou que é muito boa a sensação de cantar com 40 músicos no palco.

E também comentou sobre os imitadores – outros grupos de cantores semelhantes – enfatizando o pioneirismo do Il Divo.

Confiram  (texto original em inglês):

ENTERTAINMENT Editor Gordon Barr catches up with Il Divo’s Swiss  tenor Urs Buhler ahead of the group’s long-awaited gig at the Metro Radio Arena  in Newcastle.

FOUR years ago almost to the day, Urs Buhler, one fourth of Il Divo, was in  the North East at a show with just 120 in the audience. When he arrives here  next week with the group, you can multiply that audience figure by 100.

For back in 2008, Urs was actually at the premiere of Pub Quiz at the Queen’s  Hall in Hexham.

The Swiss hunk had taken his seat unannounced to watch the world premiere of  the dark comedy set in the North East, and was soon laughing at the lines and  enjoying his first taste of anything resembling a pub quiz.

The play was written by Carina Rodney, of North Shields, whose sister Tania  was Il Divo’s hair and make-up artist … and also the partner of the tenor.

Since then the pair have had a baby girl, Billie, and she has changed their  lives.

“I remember Pub Quiz very well,” Urs tells me ahead of Il Divo’s gig at the  Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on Monday next week.

“How life has changed since then. Obviously Tania cannot travel with us like  she used to. When Billie was a little baby it was do-able but now it is too  complicated. We arrange it now and then. When in the UK it is easier.

“But when you are traveling into Asia, for example, every day you fly to a  different country and it’s a four-five-hour flight. It is not enjoyable or good  for a child.

“It’s hard being away from them and this world tour is the first time I have  experienced that. Tania has always been with us in the past. But I’m not touring  forever.”

That world tour has already taken them to Australia and the Far East, it’s  now the European leg and after that they head for the USA, Middle East and South  America.

“There’s a lot of travelling but it is great to be doing it,” admits Urs,  40.

“The highlight of the day is not the airport lounge, it’s the show. The rest  of it is exciting but it’s not always as enjoyable as you would wish.

“The great thing is it’s our fourth world tour and we now know most of the  places and remember the hotels we are coming to and we have people who remember  us, drivers and people like that.

“That gives it a completely different atmosphere than when you go out on a  world tour like that for the first time and everything is new and fresh. We  finished our last tour Christmas 2009 and in January 2010 we started discussing  the repertoire for the next album.

“It somehow has taken a very long time to put it together because we did not  want to go on repeating ourselves and take a few well- known covers and record  them again with the same producers.”

That new album is Wicked Game, and marked something of a turning point for Il  Divo. “We tried on quite a few songs a completely different approach, some are  based on classical instrumental pieces that songwriters have written lyrics  to.

“It gives a very interesting hybrid. It gives you a new song as such based on  existing music. It just makes it a bit more interesting for us than just, say,  taking a Mariah Carey cover and doing that.”

Also new for this tour is a 40-piece orchestra.

“That is great and it gives us a completely different feeling in performing  too, in recreating these big cinematic sounds in an arena,” says Urs.

“We love it. We were worried a little bit if it was a bit too dramatic for  some of our audience who might prefer it a bit lighter, but we do enjoy it.

“It brings the three of us who are opera singers back to those days when we  used to work only acoustically in opera houses with full orchestras. It’s a  great feeling.

“It is nice making music, but it is much nicer making music together with  other people.

“We now have 45 people on stage making music on stage together, which is  fantastic.

“You create an energy. You get in the same kind of bubble together and you  live and breathe these moments together. A wonderful experience.”

There have been many Il Divo imitators, but none have yet to match their  success.

“I think it might have to do with the fact that we were the first,” says Urs  modestly.

“I think it also has to do with the fact we are multi-national and very  different personalities and we have very different voices from each other. A lot  of people see that as a handicap but we see it as an absolute bonus as it makes  the end product so much richer and diverse.”

******************************************************************************************************************************

Urs Buhler concedeu uma entrevista  ao programa “Glanz and Gloria”, da TV suíça.

Urs falou, em alemão, de sua vida pessoal.

Foi filmado, descontraído, em uma praça, e tocando guitarra em um loja de instrumentos musicais, em Zurique.

As falas de Urs foram intercaladas com as de um locutor, ao fundo.

Locutor: Este é Urs Bühler, tenor, como sabemos e, é assim que o conhecemos em uma loja de música em Zurique com sua paixão secreta. Ele ainda está apaixonado pela guitarra e, até agora. Quando era jovem ele era vocalista  e guitarrista de uma banda de heavy metal.
Urs Bühler: Talvez seja um tipo de compensação. Porque se eu tocar não estou prejudicando ninguém, exceto os meus ouvidos. Sim, talvez seja uma espécie de dispersão da energia.
Locutor: Com Il Divo, o tenor está viajando ao redor do mundo. Até agora eles venderam mais de 25 milhões de álbuns. O sucesso e sua vida hoje em dia são completamente diferentes do que na fase em era mais jovem.
Urs Bühler: Não estou seguro de fazer concessões. Se tenho uma preocupação na vida é que espero ser inteligente o suficiente para cuidar de forma correta sobre o status financeiro em que cheguei.
Locutor: Onde quer que o cara esperto de Lucerna vá com os seus 3 colegas os fãs estão entusiasmados – especialmente as mulheres. Portanto, o tenor  ri quando fala em retornar definitivamente para a Suíça.
Urs Bühler: Vivi 25 anos em Willisau (Suíça) e eu nunca morei tanto tempo em outro lugar como aqui. Isso é algo que eu nunca vou e eu nunca iria querer apagar da minha cabeça. Influenciou quem eu sou e como eu sou.
Locutor: O tenor vive feliz no casamento com sua esposa e sua filha de três anos em Londres. Mas ele não tem tempo suficiente para sua família, especialmente quando o pai de família está em turnê.
Urs Bühler: Cheguei em um momento em que eu fecho a porta da casa e já sinto a falta deles ( a família).
Locutor: A menina tem que ser paciente mais um mês até que seu pai esteja de volta – desta vez Il Divo é a família do tenor.

Foi publicada também uma outra entrevista em que Urs Buhler fala de sua paixão: os pássaros. E também de um sonho: dedicar-se à falcoaria.

Ele ama o falcão e a águia dourada e gostaria de no futuro, ter uma delas como animal de estimação.

A falcoaria é a arte de criar, treinar e cuidar de falcões e outras aves de rapina para a caça.

Esta prática milenar foi adotada pela nobreza e aristocracia no Extremo Oriente, Oriente Médio, Europa Medieval e Japão Feudal e, atualmente, é difundida por clubes e associações espalhados pelo mundo.

Pelo visto, Urs Buhler está, aos poucos, atualizando os fãs sobre sua vida pessoal e seus planos para o futuro.

Na matéria, que transcrevo abaixo, Urs fala que prentende se aposentar daqui a 10 anos, quando tiver 50 anos.

E é na sua fazenda, no sul da França,  que ele quer criar o seu falcão.

Urs Buhler é cheio de estilo!!

The operatic pop group rose to fame in 2004 with their eponymous debut album and are now a global phenomenon. Here, …their tenor Urs lets his dreams soar…
My interest in birds comes from my father. I grew up in a little Swis…s village ne…ar Lucerne and my father was very much into nature. He would be out over the hills or through the forest, photographing flowers, picking mushrooms and looking at all the animals.
From a very early age I went with him. He had a lot of books, including a German book about falconry which I read for the first time when I was about eight. From then on I was fascinated.
A lot of people don’t know what falconry is. They think it is just being interested in birds whereas it actually means hunting with them. My interest had been dormant for a while until my girlfriend picked up on it and bought me a few books for my birthday and got me a proper falconry glove a few years ago.
Unfortunately, it’s not possible for me to have my own bird at the moment. I don’t have the time and I travel too much. If you have horses or a dog you can have somebody else look after them, but birds are much more fragile.
The type of bird you can have depends on the countryside you are in. I’ve got a property in the South of France with a bit of land. It’s big, open farming country with hedges and woods. The locals mostly hunt deer and wild boar which are much too big for falconry but there are grouse and quail and hares too so you would probably get a goshawk for that type of game. If you wanted to hunt with a large falcon you would need more open country.
A couple years ago I held Europe’s biggest golden eagle at the falconry centre at Lightwater Valley in Yorkshire. It was bred in Germany for wolf-hunting. It would be my dream to have a golden eagle. I don’t think it’s possible in western Europe, though.
A golden eagle, head to tail, is about 3 ft long with a wingspan of up to 10 ft. It’s got very powerful talons so it’s a very majestic, powerful, efficient animal and it’s about a foot away from your face. I am in awe of that. Its weight and size, power and speed, and the amazing eyesight it has… I find it incredibly impressive.
Sometimes I have a problem with the whole hunting thing. When I’m in France, on my own land, and I see a hare, the last thing I think about is killing it, but if you hunt animals to eat that is fine. Some people hunt larks with a sparrowhawk. I don’t see the point. Why would you see how many larks you can kill?
The relationship you have with a bird depends on its species. Some get ver, very tame. Harris hawks can follow you like dogs. You whistle for them, they come to your fist and won’t take food from anybody else. Like any animal you have, the more time you can spend with them the better the relationship will be. Birds are not very intelligent creatures, just very instinctive. I would want a bird that was very attached to me and I hope one day this dream will come true.
I enjoy everything I do with Il Divo but I’d like to retire in about 10 years. By then I will be 50 and I would love to settle down and do everything I’ve never had the time for: have birds, horses, big dogs, and do all the outdoor things.
The rest of the band don’t understand my passion. They just see me reading these books on the plane and think: “What’s that funny thing Urs is into?”
I’ll get some time off next summer after we finish the American leg of our tour, and I plan to go to Scotland for a week for a falconry course. That will be spectacular.

Em entrevista publicada ontem, Sébastien Izambard e sua mulher Renée Murphy falam ao público do drama que viveram durante as gestações dos filhos gêmeos – Luca e Rose – e do terceiro filho – Jude, que foram muito complicadas e com risco de vida para a mãe e os bebês. Durante a primeira gravidez, Renée foi internada. Os gêmeos nasceram prematuros, com baixo peso e ficaram hospitalizados. Na segunda, o bebê nasceu no tempo certo, mas quase morreu.

Sébastien esclareceu um fato bem conhecido pelos fãs: o dia em que chorou no palco. Isto ocorreu na ocasião em que Renée sofreu um aborto, antes de ficar grávida dos gêmeos.  Sébastien disse : “Queria chorar o show inteiro. Tive dificuldade de fazer uma cara bonita na frente do público. Queria partir e me esconder, mas estava muito exposto”.

Sébastien também revelou que, por causa das complicações que Renée teve durante a gravidez, shows do Il Divo no Japão foram cancelados. Ele disse que foi difícil para o grupo entender que ele também estava “grávido” e não culpa os companheiros por isto.

A entrevista traz uma foto recente do casal, fotografado sentado na escada da porta de entrada de sua casa. Renné chama atenção pelo visual: saia vermelha plissada e sandálias de salto alto na mesma cor com detalhes coloridos, deixando à mostra uma tatuagem no dorso do pé esquerdo.

A matéria traz também uma foto dos filhos gêmeos do casal, quando tinham poucos meses de vida.

As crianças estão saudáveis e os pais, orgulhosos!

Parabéns, senhor e senhora Izambard. Vocês são guerreiros!!!

We risked death to become parents: Il Divo singer Sébastien Izambard and his wife Renee tell of the traumatic births of their children

 By Chrissy Iley

Last updated at 1:05 AM on 18th September 2011

The day before I meet Sébastien Izambard, I watch him sing with the rest of Il Divo to a packed London Coliseum.

The three other members of the opera group, who have sold more than 26 million albums worldwide, joke and flirt and have underwear thrown at them by an audience of near-hysterical women.

Sébastien, 38, devotes a song to his wife Renee and gives thanks for becoming a father. There is a hush on stage as he says how much it means to him because he ‘almost lost all of them’.

Proud parents: Despite problems conceiving and during the pregnancy which could have even led to death, Il Divo singer Sebsastien Izambard and his wife Renne now have three 'amazing' childrenProud parents: Despite problems conceiving and during the pregnancy which could have even led to death, Il Divo singer Sebsastien Izambard and his wife Renne now have three ‘amazing’ children

Indeed, Renee suffered not just one but two difficult pregnancies, battling a host of health problems. The first culminated in their elder children, twins Luca and Rose, now four, being born three months prematurely by emergency caesarean. For weeks it was not known whether the tiny babies would survive. And during her second labour, with their son Jude, now two, Renee came close to death herself.

When we meet in a London restaurant near their home, Sébastien rarely lets go of his wife’s hand. Renee, a vibrant 33-year-old Australian, worked as a publicist for Il Divo’s record company (the band was created by Simon Cowell, and they are signed to his label Syco) when they met seven years ago.

Both wanted to start a family as soon as possible – but soon found there were obstacles. ‘I have polycystic ovary syndrome, where fluid-filled cysts develop in the ovaries meaning you don’t produce a lot of eggs,’ says Renee. ‘And Seb .  .  .’

‘And I have slow-swimming sperm,’ he says with unabashed honesty.
Renee continues: ‘So I had fertility treatment for six months, taking daily tablets and having injections of hormone-stimulating drugs.’

In 2005, Renee discovered she was pregnant. ‘We were so excited,’ she says. ‘Then, two days before Il Divo were set to perform at Wembley Arena, I lost the baby. It was devastating.’

At Renee’s insistence, Sébastien went on stage as planned. ‘I wanted to cry the whole show. It was difficult to put on a bright face in front of the crowd. I wanted to go and hide myself but I was so exposed,’ he says.

So when Renee became pregnant again with twins four years ago, the couple were ecstatic. But she soon realised, once again, that something was terribly wrong. ‘It started with awful headaches and I was diagnosed with a condition called pre-eclampsia, which is basically dangerously high blood pressure,’ she says.

Cute: Twins Luca and Rose weighed just 3lbs each at birth, which took place just 24 weeks into the pregnancy after Renee was diagnosed with pre-eclampsiaCute: Twins Luca and Rose weighed just 3lbs each at birth, which took place just 24 weeks into the pregnancy after Renee was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia

Renee fell ill while the couple were visiting Sébastien’s family in France, and, deemed unfit to travel by doctors, remained there for the rest of the pregnancy. ‘I was hospitalised at 17 weeks and spent seven weeks there until the babies were born. I was in a British hospital in France but I got too sick and they didn’t have a specialised neo-natal unit. I ended up outside Paris in Port-Royal-des-Champs maternity hospital.’

Sébastien says: ‘It was very difficult. My wife is number one in my life and we had a tour in Japan. I said to the guys [Carlos Marín, Urs Bühler and David Miller], ‘‘I can’t do it.’’ They were not very understanding but I can’t blame them. We had to cancel the tour. Eventually they understood. All of a sudden “we” were pregnant and having difficulties. I thought I was losing my wife and children.’

‘I wanted to cry the whole show. It was difficult to put on a bright face in front of the crowd. I wanted to go and hide myself but I was so exposed.’

Pre-eclampsia affects up to ten per cent of first-time pregnancies, with severe cases (about two in every 100) requiring hospitalisation. It is the most common reason for death in pregnant women. The cause is still not known, and the majority of cases occur in the third trimester.

In the early stages, the condition is symptomless and detectable only by regular checks on the mother’s blood pressure and urine. At its worst, it can cause damage to the liver, kidneys, lungs and heart.

Treatment of severe pre-eclampsia is a balancing act – continuing the pregnancy can lead to life-threatening complications for the mother, so induced labour or an emergency caesarean is usually necessary. Yet born too early, the baby may not survive.

‘My blood pressure was rising and I developed a pulmonary oedema, which is fluid on your lungs, so I was put into intensive care,’ says Renee. ‘It was terrifying as it was difficult to breathe.’

Clive Spence-Jones, consultant gynaecologist and obstetrician at London’s Whittington Hospital, explains: ‘Fluid in the capillaries in the lungs leaks into the spaces normally filled with air, and patients become very short of breath.’

Renee says: ‘Every bit of fight in me said one more day – the aim was to get me to 27 weeks, which would give the babies a real chance. It’s quite difficult to describe the feeling – you feel horrible, and towards the end I didn’t feel anything. I looked at Seb coming in every day and he was exhausted. I could see the stress it was putting him through.’

Eventually, Renee was put on a ventilator to assist her breathing. At 24 weeks, doctors decided they could wait no longer.

‘I woke in the middle of the night and felt I couldn’t breathe, but I thought maybe it was the babies pushing on me. I waited a bit longer, gasping as I couldn’t breathe. They took my blood pressure in the morning and the doctor raced in and said, “We’ve got to get the babies out now.” I asked if we could keep them in a little bit longer, just one more day. But the doctor said, “You will not be alive tomorrow.” ’

Luca and Rose each weighed about 3lb at birth. ‘They looked like little sparrows,’ says Renee. ‘I felt guilty that I couldn’t keep them in longer.

There they were with tubes to help them breathe, all that machinery, all those beeps. And it was because I couldn’t keep them in.’

Sébastien says: ‘After four days we could hold them, but with all the cables you had to be careful.’

The babies were in hospital for just over six weeks and, despite a number of infections, when they came home they weighed a healthy 5lb. ‘We were so happy, but after that experience we weren’t planning to have another baby,’ says Sébastien. ‘I did not want Renee to go through that again. I had almost lost her and I couldn’t take that risk.’

So it came as a shock when Renee discovered she was pregnant two years later. ‘Initially it was a panic for both of us because we were unsure how the pregnancy would go,’ she says.

There is a 40 per cent chance of pre-eclampsia recurring if the mother suffered from it during a previous pregnancy. This time, though, Renee’s blood pressure remained normal. Instead, she developed an unrelated but equally distressing condition known as hyperemesis, or severe vomiting during pregnancy.

‘It wasn’t just for the first three months,’ recalls Renee. ‘It was constant, up to 40 to 50 times a day until I would vomit blood. I was suffering from malnutrition and dehydration. So I was hospitalised again.’

Hyperemesis is more common in multiple pregnancies and in those where there is an abnormality with the placenta. Sébastien says: ‘They thought she might have an ulcer. She tried every medication. She was fainting almost all the time.’

Renee continues: ‘I was put on a drip to rehydrate me. Perhaps I was sick because I had a deep fear of getting pre-eclampsia again. Again they don’t know what causes this. The hospital food [at Queen Charlotte Hospital, West London] was fantastic but I still couldn’t eat anything.’

‘The doctor said: “We’ve got to get the babies out now.” I asked if we could keep them in a little bit longer, just one more day. But the doctor said, “You will not be alive tomorrow.”‘

This time, Renee carried the baby to full term but during labour she suffered placental abruption. The condition, which affects one in 200 pregnancies, occurs when, for reasons unknown, the placenta separates from the womb lining before birth. This can cause life-threatening bleeding and it is one of the most common causes of stillbirth.

‘After a day and a half of labour her waters broke, then the midwife pressed a buzzer and we had ten people coming into the room,’ says Sébastien. ‘The baby’s heart had stopped beating completely. Renee was in an oxygen mask. They took us straight to theatre. When Jude came out, he didn’t breathe. I said to Renee, “He’s OK,” even though I knew he was not OK.’

Renee says: ‘Seb was holding me down because I was shaking so much. And because of the sheet they put up, you couldn’t really see Jude when they took him out, but there was silence in the room, which is horrendous. Seb kept saying he was OK but I knew something was wrong.’

Sébastien says: ‘Then we heard him cry. It came from deep in his lungs.’
‘It was the most overwhelming rlief,’ says Renee. ‘You are in this silent room. They are stitching me back together. I am paralysed from the chest down [from the epidural, an anaesthetic injected into the spine to ease labour pain]. You can’t get up and see. You are waiting for that first breath, and when it came it was the best I have ever felt.’

Jude weighed almost 9lb, three times the size of the twins. ‘We had a very happy, smiley baby,’ says Sébastien. ‘To see your loved one going through all of this has been extremely difficult. Renee, all I can say is I’m really proud of you.’

Tears are streaming from his eyes. ‘It’s been very difficult but it pulled us closer together. We have risked death to be parents.’

Would they do it again? They aren’t sure. Renee says: ‘I think we’re programmed to forget the trauma of childbirth, otherwise women would never do it more than once. After the horror of my pregnancies, we have these amazing babies.’

CARLOS  MARÍN BROKE UP WITH KIM SHARMA

Segundo nota publicada   no fórum oficial do Il Divo no dia 04  de Agosto de 2010, Carlos Marín confirma a separação de Kim Sharma. Eis a nota, em inglês, a qual traduzo, abaixo,  para meu idioma pátrio:

Hello to all of you. It has been a very long time since I have had the time to write you, for which I appologize.
I am currently very happy because we are working on a new album which will hopefully be released very soon. We all hope you enjoy this new work as much as the previous ones.
I have an official and personal announcement to make. As you are probably already aware off, Kim Sharma and I are no longer together anymore and it has been officially announced today in the Indian newspapers. One thing the newspapers did not mention is that Kim Sharma has already married a multimillioner from India that is living in Southafrica. I am pretty sure that they are keeping the secret in order to publish it at a more convenient time, to once again get the best media coverage possible.

I broke up with her because things were not going in the right direction, and now that she has abruptly decided to marry a multimillioner, a very influential indian businessman in South Africa, it has become clear to me how HIGH her expectations were in life. I am sad to admit now that you all saw this before I did and that you were all right from the start, but ……Oh well, that´s the way things are and life goes on.

Sooooooooo, I guess I am proud to announce that I am back on the market and open to suggestions, hahahaha )
Many kisses
Carlos

Olá a todos. Desde muito não tenho tido tempo  para  escrever-lhes e peço desculpas.
Atualmente, estou muito feliz porque nós estamos trabalhando em um novo álbum que esperamos seja lançado muito em breve. Nós todos esperamos que você apreciem este novo trabalho, tanto quanto os anteriores.

 

Tenho um anúncio oficial e pessoal para fazer. Como vocês provavelmente já estão sabendo, Kim Sharma e eu já não estamos mais juntos e isso foi oficialmente anunciado hoje nos jornais indianos. Uma coisa que os jornais não mencionaram é que Kim Sharma  já se casou com uma multimillionário da Índia que vive na África do Sul. Tenho certeza que eles estão mantendo  segredo, a fim de anunciá-lo em um momento mais conveniente e mais uma vez conseguir a melhor cobertura possível da mídia. 
Eu terminei com ela, porque as coisas não estavam indo na direção certa, e agora que ela de repente resolveu se casar com uma multimillionário, um empresário indiano muito influente  na África do Sul, tornou-se claro para mim o quão ALTO as suas expectativas foram na vida. Estou triste em admitir agora que todos viram isso antes que eu,   e que vocês estavam completamente certos desde o começo, mas …… Bem, essa é a maneira como as coisas são e a vida continua. 

Então, acho que  estou orgulhoso em anunciar que me  encontro de volta no mercado e aberto a sugestões  hahahaha)

Muitos beijos
Carlos

Finally, actress and ex-girlfriend of cricketer Yuvraj Singh, Kim Sharma, who got engaged to Spanish musician Carlos some time ago, made her first appearance in Delhi with her beau. They plan to get married by the end of the year.

Sitting snugly near Carlos, Kim says, “I’m very happy to have Carlos in my life. We have known each other for almost one-and-a-half years now, it’s a beautiful bonding between us. This is Carlos’ fifth visit to India and it is for the first time that he is visiting Delhi with me.”

We ask Carlos about his lady love, and he smiles, “It’s wonderful to be with Kim. She’s beautiful and attractive, has a good sense of humour and is a loving person.” So who prosposed first? “It was me who proposed to her,” Carlos tells us, adding, “I first met Kim at the airport lounge in Canada. She was returning to India and I was going back to London. We were travelling on the same flight. In fact, my seat was next to hers and that’s when our conversation started. We exchanged numbers and kept in touch. After a month or so, we met in Dubai and then went for a short vacation to Italy, where I formally proposed to her, and we got engaged.”

Ask Kim how she feels about her ‘international’ romance, and she says, “Both our families are happy with our engagement. So far, we haven’t decided on a wedding date, but definitely, we shall get married by the end of this year. I’ve visited his place in Spain and met his family. I don’t understand much of Spanish, but yes, I’m trying to learn.”

Carlos loves the country of his fiancée, and says, “I’ve enjoyed eating Indian food, but it’s too spicy. My mother-in-law gifted me a sherwani, and I loved wearing it. I have visited many places in India, only my visit to Delhi was pending. I’m looking forward to visiting some interesting spots in the city.”

And will Kim continue to act after getting married? “I have taken a break now, enjoying being with Carlos,” she tells us, “I don’t think Carlos will have any problem with me acting in films. In fact, Carlos is soon planning to release his new music album in which he wants to feature me. The album is dedicated to our love.”

Interestingly, Carlos is fascinated by Bollywood music, and says, “As a musician, I appreciate all kinds of music. Bollywood music is fun, very colourful. If given a chance, I’d like to do some interesting compositions for Bollywood too someday.”

In between all this, there were rumours that Kim had called off her engagement with Carlos and was dating the Rock On!! director Abhishek Kapoor. That’s not all, rumours of her reunion with cricketer Yuvraj Singh were also doing the rounds around the same time. Yuvraj Singh and Kim dated for four years before calling it quits. According to reports, the two split because Yuvraj’s mother disapproved of Kim and her lifestyle. Post her break-up, Kim had once said that that exes can never be friends.”

Urs Bühler E Tania Rodney – Vídeo mostra mais do que desejam expor ao público?

 Tania aparece com uma camiseta comprida e com listras grandes. A blusa escolhida ‘esconde’ uma barriga proeminente. A pessoa que fez o vídeo teve a intenção de mostrar Urs e Tania e a gravidez sobre a qual nada foi dito. Se não fossem imagens como esta e a foto do evento de 2009 em que Tania usava um vestido cinza de corte clássico e justo, mostrando uma barriga crescida, pergunto: alguém saberia dessa gravidez? Tania não é artista, não é uma pessoa pública e parece não querer ver sua vida privada exposta ao público. Urs tampouco falou, até o momento, sobre sua suposta paternidade. Se assim agiu, é porque assim o quer.

Sarah Kabanuck and David Miller

Piotr Redlinski for The New York Times

MANHATTAN, AUG. 8 It was a remake of “La Bohème,” with a much happier outcome, for one member of Il Divo.

// //

Published: September 5, 2009
IN “La Bohème,” the lovers Mimi and Rodolfo are pried apart by disease, poverty, failure of nerve and, ultimately, death. When Sarah Joy Kabanuck and David Miller played the roles on Broadway in 2003, some strange magnetism seemed to be forcing them together.
Piotr Redlinski for The New York Times

“There was a moment of connection, but it was so intense that we couldn’t be friends,” Ms. Kabanuck, now 30, said of their initial encounters. “Our time together was nothing but awkward.”

Like the conflicted characters they played, they faced many obstacles to happy romance. It wasn’t all that operatic (though he did lose a job at one point). She was married and he had a reputation as a womanizer. Yet as Ms. Kabanuck later remarked: “Love doesn’t necessarily make logical sense.”

Ms. Kabanuck had been an understudy in the Broadway “Bohème” (which was directed by Baz Luhrmann), playing Mimi more than 30 times. She agreed to be an understudy in the Los Angeles production in 2004, and she and Mr. Miller, now 36, discovered that they were to perform opposite each other for a week and a half. On the first day of rehearsal, as they sang the passionate duet “O soave fanciulla,” their eyes locked — and Mr. Miller forgot the words.

“I was out of place and out of time,” he said. “It was enough for me to be late on my entrance. I had all the emotional upheaval of a teenager in love.”

He was not the only one who had come unstrung.

“There was one special kiss that Mimi and Rodolfo would share, and that kiss was very specific,” Ms. Kabanuck said. “In hindsight, there was nothing romantic about it.”

And still, when he kissed her, she momentarily lost her footing. “I was thinking, ‘What was that?’ ” she said. “There was definitely something there.”

After the rehearsal, Mr. Miller decided he had to see Ms. Kabanuck outside of work and invented a reason to call. A question about their schedule quickly turned into an invitation to a movie. That evening they went to see “50 First Dates.”

“I was so drawn to him immediately and tried to talk myself out of it,” Ms. Kabanuck said. Theirs was a clash of outlooks, if not cultures. He wore red cowboy boots, had earrings in both ears and spiked hair. She had been raised as a Baptist fundamentalist and said she remained devout, describing herself as “a little church girl.”

The date led to a few other encounters, but he was about to depart for Piacenza, Italy, for what he expected to be a triumph as the Duke of Mantua in a new production of “Rigoletto.” She drove him to the airport. Neither of them knew what would happen next. She was still married, but very much wanted to be close to him. He later described the experience of looking into her eyes on the first date as “that thunderstruck moment.”

“I was in love,” he said, “not just in my heart but in head, my body, my soul. That was it.”

The Piacenza “Rigoletto” turned into a disaster for Mr. Miller. The audiences booed him and within days he was fired. Devastated, he called his agent, who found him last-minute work as an understudy for Roberto Alagna at the Opéra Bastille.

When he arrived in Paris he sent for Ms. Kabanuck. She was still in California, finishing “La Bohème.” They paid for her flight with their scant savings.

Holed up in a hotel in the Latin Quarter for two weeks, they reveled in their own vie bohème. Only in this version, the two lovers began planning his next career move, an audition for the pop-opera quartet, Il Divo, then being put together by Simon Cowell. She scraped together the last of her money to buy him an MP3 player so he could rehearse.

The player turned out to be a solid investment. He became a member of Il Divo and now tours the world with the group.

Ms. Kabanuck, when she returned from Paris, moved out of the home in New Jersey that she shared with her husband and found an apartment in Manhattan. The decision to leave her marriage and devote herself to Mr. Miller was extraordinarily difficult, she conceded. Still, she added, “from the moment our eyes met through those two weeks of being in Paris and the pain of going through a divorce, I knew that I loved him.”

“I fell in love with his fearless appetite for life and his desire to leave no experience un-experienced. He was so passionate in playing Rodolfo, it was infectious. I loved, and still love, his vision of the world and its potential.”

In Hawaii last New Year’s Eve, Mr. Miller proposed in a cabana as fireworks rained sparks on the Pacific.

On Aug. 8, they were married at 632 on Hudson, a Manhattan event space, amid a garden fantasy of trees hung with crystals and artificial birds. Wearing a strapless sheath with a slender jeweled sash and fluted hem by Michelle Rahn, Ms. Kabanuck entered to a processional composed by Mr. Miller.

Aleta St. James, the couple’s life coach, who is also a Universal Life minister, performed the ceremony. Afterward an ebullient Mr. Miller said that his singing has never been better.

“Before, I had a pretty good emotional facility, but it was imitation,” he said. “How I sing now is the real deal. I know how the things I’ve being singing about feel. Everything is freer, easier, and my high notes — I don’t have to work for them. Now, they come from my heart.”

Sobre a paternidade de Urs

Apesar dos rumores de blog  e sites, nem Urs e seus agentes têm confirmado o sexo do bebê. É altamente improvável que Urs nunca irá discutir sua vida familiar com o público em geral.
Segundo um ex-membro ligado à banda Il Divo, Urs de fato tem uma filha chamada Billie. Seus fãs genuínos aceitaram que ele escolha não  discutir assuntos pessoais e respeitam a sua privacidade. Apesar disto, ele foi conhecido por gentilmente aceitar qualquer brinde de bebê entregue a ele com um grande sorriso e um  educado obrigado.

Fontes não oficiais informam que Urs e Tanya Rodney, que também trabalha com o grupo como maquiadora, sendo responsável por mantê-lo impecável no visual, têm uma filha chamada Billie, nascida em 06 de Janeiro de 2009. No post abaixo, Tânia aparece com um vestido justo mostrando uma barriguinha, bastante compatível com gravidez. Estas fotos foram tiradas na ocasião de um evento em Agosto de 2008, em que os divos encontravam-se em uma pausa em seu trabalho de palco e preparando o último CD e a atual turnê mundial.

Um breve relato sobre a vida privada dos quatro integrantes do Il Divo. Em inglês, com fotos das mulheres (buaaaaaaá) e, no caso de Carlos, da ex (é legalmente divorciado).
