Watch This A Cappella Medley Of Shakira Songs By Oxford Students

Oxford A Cappella Choir
Their Hips Don't Lie

Out Of The Blue, an insanely talented student a cappella group from Oxford University, busted out a medley of Shakira tunes in a charity performance. Each download of the song raises money for Helen and Douglas House, an Oxford children’s hospice. These choir boys are cute enough as is, but when they break out their hip-heavy dance moves, they’re even better! Even Shakira herself loved the performance, and told them so on Twitter. Watch them harmonize beautifully to “Hips Don’t Lie,” “Whenever, Wherever,” and “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa).” [Huffington Post]

Conspiracy Theorists Think The Rapper Pitbull Predicted The Malaysian Airlines Crash/Disappearance 2 Years Ago

Conspiracy Theorists Think The Rapper Pitbull Predicted The Malaysian Airlines Crash/Disappearance 2 Years Ago
"Two passports, three cities, two countries, one day."

Welp, now I’ve heard everything. A few conspiracy theorists have decided that the rapper Pitbull predicted the Malaysian Airlines plane crash/disappearance two years ago in his song “Get It Started” (above). These folks with too much time on their hands — i.e. YouTube commenters — say the lyrics to the song makes references to certain aspects of the plane’s mysterious disappearance. Specifically, “No Ali, No Frasier, but for now off to Malaysia” and “Two passports, three cities, two countries, one day.” According to the UK’s Daily Mirror:

Viewers on YouTube are convinced the two passports is a reference to the stolen Austrian and Italian passports used by two Iranians to board MH370. They also believe the three cities refer to the capital cities of Malaysia, China and Vietnam and the two countries are Malaysia and Vietnam. Furthermore, they assert the lyrics “No Ali, No Frasier, but for now off to Malaysia” are a reference to Mr Ali, the man who bought tickets for the two Iranians to travel on board MH370.

Lingerie Style Inspiration: Shakira’s Sexy Red Corset Dress From The ACM Awards

Out of all the gorgeous gowns I saw on the red carpet and on stage at last night’s ACM Awards, the Kristian Aadnevik corset dress Shakira wore to perform “Medicine” with Blake Shelton was my absolute favorite. My reaction to it was a combination of “Oh my God she looks amazing,” and “Oh my God I want to be wearing that right now!” And while most of us don’t have that many opportunities to wear a skimpy corset dress in real life, we can definitely make some opportunities to wear the lacy red lingerie that inspired it. Click through to check out a few fabulous slips, bras, and corsets to bring a little sexy Shakira style into your bedroom (or under your work clothes, if you’re feeling particularly daring!)…

Shakira On Her Boyfriend: “He No Longer Lets Me Do Videos With Men”

“He’s very territorial, and since he no longer lets me do videos with men, well, I have to do them with women. It’s more than implied in our relationship that I can’t do videos like I used to. It’s out of the question – which I like, by the way. I like that he protects his turf and he values me, in a way that the only person that he would ever let graze my thigh would be Rihanna.”

This is Shakira in Billboard, revealing that she had to ask her boyfriend Gerard Piqué for PERMISSION to film her music video “Can’t Remember To Forget You” with Rihanna. And it seems the Rihanna duet wasn’t just an artistic choice; it was a necessity, as Piqué “no longer lets” Shakira film music videos with men. (The couple reportedly met while filming a music video together.) For the love of Beyoncé, please let there be something lost in translation here! [Billboard [Photo: Getty]

And The Victoria’s Secret “Sexiest Curves” Award Exists Why?

I try to restrain myself from straying too far down the rabbit hole of the vaguely dehumanizing, inherently anti-feminist fuckery that is Victoria’s Secret, but that was before I knew they gave out a “Sexiest Curves” trophy. Sure, if they simply must do it, I’m glad they decided to give it to Shakira, a wildly talented dancer, philanthropist, and MENSA genius who also happens to be beautiful… But why? Where, exactly, does a Victoria’s Secret “Sexiest Curves” award fit into the world? Riddle me that. [Huffington Post]

Pop star Shakira gave birth to her son, Milan, back in January. Since then, she’s been hard at work promoting her new gig as a judge on the NBC show, “The Voice.” As part of that promotion, Shakira spoke with US Weekly and weighed in with some thoughts on motherhood:

On getting her pre-baby body back: ”I mean, I guess our mothers and grandmothers weren’t under the pressure that women of today are after delivering a baby. My dad says that there’s nothing better than a little meat on the bone! He likes my mom a little chubby. So she was never under the pressure to get back to her old weight, and she never did, actually! But it’s different, I have a career, and that’s the only part that’s been a bit stressful because I knew that I’d have to come back here to do ‘The Voice’ two months after I delivered a baby. I didn’t have my four months maternity like every woman on Earth has. So I’m not trying to complain, but it’s been a process full of challenges in my life. I’m still a few pounds over! Zumba has been pretty great for me even during pregnancy. I did it almost until the end.”

Sigh. That’s a whole lot to unpack. First, I have to admit to busting out a cackling laugh at Shakira’s seemingly naive lament over not having her “four months maternity like every woman on earth has.” But then I remembered Shakira is Colombian and — oh yeah — it’s pretty much just the United States that is completely screwed up when it comes to mandated paid maternity leave. I’ve ranted about this before, but honestly, it never gets old. The U.S. is one of only four (FOUR!) other countries in the world that does not provide any sort of mandated paid maternity (or family) leave. Keep reading »
