    Happy Birthday to a woman who really could carry the melody and the power of Benny and Bjorns lyrics.

    dear entertainment weekly —
    as a concerned subscriber, i would like to suggest that every time you are tempted to let michael slezak write something, that you take a moment, read something like the steamer of a post above, or the “cameron diaz looks like some other chick who looks nothing like cameron diaz” post of last week, and then call whitney or gary or god, anyone else and ask them to do it…seriously, please…this guy is a load

    Thanks for bringing attention to Frida. She often seemed to be in Agnetha “the blonde one”s shadow. But for me, she was always my favorite member of Abba. She is a sublime singer, a wonderful entertainer (just watch her in Abba The Movie) and one classy lady.

    Wow Michael–that was a nice surprise. I’ve been an ABBA fan since ’74 and still think they don’t get enough respect. Are you going to do the same for Agnetha when she turns 57 next April?

    dan – chill out. why don’t you just skip to the next item and save us the essay. some of the rest of us “concerned subscribers” enjoy the odd haiku (not to mention the fond memory of swedish popstars with bad hair and great lungs).

  • Stephanie

    Dan, I think that you just speak for yourself.
    For this haiku I think that it is cool that Frida waz mentioned. She was my favorite ABBA member and I think that she had a better voice than Agnetha. But that’s just me. There is just one thing that Michael forgot: AniFrid was born in Norway and then moved to Sweden.

    Beautiful voices on their own, sublime together. Lucky for us.

    oh lighten up and go do some pilates girls…just because he’s a homo doesn’t mean you have to make him your new bff. and it doesn’t make him funny either…but that goes without saying. not that i won’t say it anyway. there.

    Dear Anni-Frid! I trust a little, that my letter will come to you, but huge desire to adjoin to you, with the woman of unusual beauty, beauty of a voice.. And an alive legend – is stronger than my disbelief:) Frida, I even dont know what to write… You have received millions letters, and likely the most important for me, that you knew it, that on a planet the Earth, peninsula Crimea, in the city of Yalta you too very much love! I am sorry for quality of English… All this electronic translation.

    Mi único deseo es que le llegue este mensaje y lo pueda traducir.Detesto cuando hace comentarios a cerca de su edad y la opinión del público sobre eso, usted tiene algo que pocas personas se dan el gusto de tener:la belleza eterna,esa mirada maravilosa y ese brillo de vida en su rostro.No soy fan suyo ni de ABBA sólo que le aseguro que su permanencia y su imagen serán siempre intachables por el paso del tiempo. La estima mucho:Roberto Omar Camurri,45,Buenos Aires, Argentina.
