And the world's not end... E o mundo não se acabou...
Carmen Miranda,(Marco de Canaveses, 9 February 1909 – Los Angeles, 5 August 1955) was a Portuguese-born Brazilian samba singer, dancer, Broadway actress, and film star who was popular in the 1940s and 1950s. After establishing a successful singing and acting career in her native Brazil, Lee Shubert signed Miranda and her band to a contract in 1939. She made her American stage debut in July 1939, and later moved to Hollywood to pursue a film career. Nicknamed "The Brazilian Bombshell", Miranda is noted for her signature fruit hat outfit she wore in the 1943 movie The Gang's All Here. By 1945, she was the highest paid woman in the United States. Miranda made a total of fourteen Hollywood films between 1940 and 1953. Though hailed as a talented performer, her popularity waned by the end of World War II. She later grew to resent the stereotypical "Brazilian Bombshell" image she cultivated and attempted to break free of it with limited success. On 4 August 1955, Miranda unknowingly suffered a mild heart attack while performing during the taping of an episode of The Jimmy Durante Show. She finished the show but died the following morning after suffering a second heart attack.
Carmen Miranda, (Marco de Canaveses, 9 de fevereiro de 1909 — Los Angeles, 5 de agosto de 1955), mais conhecida como Carmen Miranda, foi uma cantora e atriz luso-brasileira. Sua carreira artística transcorreu no Brasil e Estados Unidos entre as décadas de 1930 e 1950. Trabalhou no rádio, no teatro de revista, no cinema e na televisão. Chegou a receber o maior salário até então pago a uma mulher nos Estados Unidos. Seu estilo eclético faz com que seja considerada precursora do tropicalismo, movimento cultural brasileiro surgido no final da década de 1960.
Lyric of the song (sorry, not so good translation)
AND THE WORLD'S NOT END
Announced and guaranteed
That the world was going to end
Because of this my people
Back home began to pray
So said the sun was born
Because of this tonight
There on the hill did not batucada
I believed this bullshit
I thought the world was going to end
And I was trying to say goodbye
And immediately I was trying to take advantage
I kissed his on the lips of those who should not
I grabbed the hand of those who do not know
I danced a samba costume in swimsuit
And so the world's not end
I called a guy who I did not get along
And I forgive his ingratitude
And celebrating the event
I spent with him over quinhentão (much time)
Now I knew the guy walks
Saying something which had not happened
You'll have noise and confusion will have
Because the world's not end
As the video above did not works abroad, I post another of Carmen Miranda. I hope it works! That Night In Rio (1941) - "Chica Chica Boom Chic".
