Do you know who I’m referring to? Yes, it’s Shakira. The last I heard of her was back in 2001 when she release her album Laundry Service, featuring the well know hit “Whenever Wherever”. I actually bought the CD for Alex because I knew he appreciated her musical talent and other things. Lol
She was all the rage back then and captivated most of the male in Britain with her snake charming hip movements. And we girls wished that we could move like her. I bet belly dancing lessons were popular that year.
Shakira is far more than a beautiful, talented Columbian girl she does a lot of work and for charities in her own country and around the globe. And it is reported that she personally donates $55,000 of her own money in to them.
She founded the Pies Descalzos Foundation in Columbia which provides special schools for poor children and is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and one of their global representatives.
But I almost forgot the reason I was making this post is because after several years of quiet in the UK Shakira is about to make a return with her new album She Wolf which is going to be predominantly English and is due out this October.
I was drawn to it by the tantalising shots of her video to accompany the track She Wolf, she appears to be in a cage wearing heels and a leotard. I’m guessing that she is going to be bringing out the animal in herself but we will have to wait and see. 😉
