Kiley Dean Checks In From Sao Paulo

Kiley Dean checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@kileydean) on Monday (December 22). The Los Angeles R&B singer tells readers:

Sao Paulo

This city is very different from what I expected to see here in Brazil. It’s very metropolitan. When we flying into the city all I could see were buildings for miles and miles and miles. Like New York, but times 10! There are so many tall buildings. Boss lady and management threw a “end of tour” party for us. It was nice to see people one last time and say goodbyes. They had Brazilian Dancers and a band. It was really neat. We had 3 shows here. The last show was last night. The Sticky and Sweet tour is a wrap!!! I leave Sao Paulo tonight and I am so excited to get home to my family and loved ones. I am looking SO forward to Christmas and being home. I hope you all have an amazing Christmas!

Love KD

Kiley Dean Confident About Her Debut

Kiley Dean’s One Sole Sister

Kiley Dean is featured in the August issue of Teen People magazine where she shows her huge collection of Nike sneakers. The singer says, “I am absolutely obsessed with Nike sneakers. I love the Shox. I love the Dunks. I love the Air Force 1’s. I love them all! There are about 70 pairs packed into my closets in Orlando. Every pair is comfortable, so why go with something else, you know? I would so much rather wear sneakers than high heels.” Part of that obsession is keeping those shoes clean, and she revealed the lengths she’ll go to adding, “Once I was at this club wearing a new pair of red-and-white Nikes, and everyone kept stepping on them. I got so upset I ended up standing against the wall. I know it sounds materialistic, and I’m so not that way – it’s just that when I have new sneakers, they have to stay clean, period!”
