8 Couples Who Should Be In Kate Middleton’s (And Prince William’s) Lamaze Class

I’d imagine Kate Middleton had to take some fancy pants lamaze class, complete with a midwife who tells her how to “breathe like a lady,” before she had Prince George. Now that royal baby number two is on the way, the Dutchess probably has to do it all over again, cooped up in Kensington Palace…

Watch This A Cappella Medley Of Shakira Songs By Oxford Students

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…

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

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…

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…

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 protect…

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…

An Open Letter To “The Voice”

Dear “The Voice,”

I heard the news that you will be replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green with Shakira and Usher next season. I hate this idea. Not because I love Xtina and Cee Lo so much that I can’t stand to lose them, but because you seem to be getting a…

Shakira’s dad reportedly told a Honduran newspaper that Shakira is pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Gerard Pique. Oopsies!

Anatomy Of An Amazing News Item: Shakira And The Impetuous Sea Lion

It’s another one of those stories. You know, the kind where the math doesn’t quite add up so you have to make a special visual equation to figure it out. Today, we found out that Shakira was nearly attacked by a wild sea lion while on an aquatic mammal tour in Cape Town, South Africa.

Shakira’s New Fragrance Ad Looks As Funky As We Bet It Smells

I find this ad for Shakira’s new fragrance, S by Shakira, perplexing. First of all, how did they justify not calling the scent She Wolf? And second, she doesn’t even slightly look like herself here. What happened to her gorgeous curly hair? And her face has been soft-focused past the point of recognition. Don’t eve…

Shakira Shakes Up Controversy Over Arizona’s New Immigration Laws

If I wasn’t already slightly embarrassed to admit that I grew up in Arizona, I am now. With the announcement of the new immigration laws, I want to boycott the state altogether, but unfortunately that’s not an option since my family lives here. In fact, I am here right now with my brother for a…

Shakira Has Lost Her Head

Now that’s gotta hurt. UK street artist The Decapitator set about making a wackadoodle pop culture statement when he cut off Shakira‘s head. Posters featuring the cover of the November issue of Rolling Stone were decimated in this rather gory fashion. Not satisfied with this New York City sidewalk prank, the guerrilla artist produced fake…

Shakira, 32, Says She’s Too Young To Get Married

At Monday night’s Rolling Stone party in New York City, Shakira made an off-handed comment to a NY Daily News reporter. “Yes, I’d love to have kids,” she said. “But I’m much too young to get married!” Cue the spin. “Shakira seems to have her priorities out of order,” reads an item in today’s issue.
