Listen, don’t front like Nelly Furtado’s new single ‘Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)’ isn’t one of the best songs of the summer. Sure, it’s not summer yet, but you know what I mean. That track is pretty much my personal anthem, as anyone who knows me knows that I have an obsession with giant earrings of all sorts, especially hoops. Seriously – I bought five new pairs just the other day. It’s a bit of a problem.
Anyway, that’s hardly the point. It’s Mother’s Day in the US on Sunday and as a mom herself to a lovely 8-year-old daughter named Nevis, Nelly knows just how tough a job being a mom can be. I’m not even a mom and I know how tough it can be. Really, really tough.
In conjunction with her forthcoming album Spirit Indestructible, Nelly wants to hear from YOU, HelloGiggles readers, about your own mother’s spirit. How has she displayed strength? In what ways has your mom come through for you when no one else has? Is your mom your best friend? Seriously, she (and we) wants to know!
To that end, we invite you to share stories about your mom’s “spirit indestructible” in the comments section below. Nelly herself will read your entries and pick her favourite to be featured on her Facebook page for Mother’s Day! Not only that, the top three entries will win a signed Nelly Furtado lithograph to sweeten the deal.
So honour your mom by telling everyone else just how great she is. After all, it’s silly that Mother’s Day is only once a year when the job is year-round! Let her know just how much you appreciate her by sharing your love below!
Don’t forget to pick up Nelly Furtado’s Spirit Indestructible on June 19 and stay tuned for our chat with the lady herself in the coming weeks!
