Gerard Pique & Shakira: Spain’s Most Nauseating Couple

Image first used 29.03.2011.

Is it time already for us to make Kickette-themed barf bags?

Survey says: it just might be.

Colombian popstar – and this month’s Cosmopolitan Armenia cover girl – Shakira, and her Spanish international footballer, Gerard Pique, were voted the ‘most nauseating’ Spanish celebrity couple in a recent poll conducted by news agency EFE.

Image: Storemags.com.

What’s more, these two demolished the competition, which included the likes of Iker Casillas/Sara Carbonero (2nd place; 11%) and Javier Bardem/Penelope Cruz (3rd; 4.9%). Yes, as our foresight would have it, nearly three-quarters of poll respondents (73.4%) want these lovestruck puppies to keep their affection to themselves from here on out.

It’s just a hunch, but we’re sensing a fangirl revolt brewing. No matter how big of a ‘die hard’ one declares themselves to be of either half of this duo, it’s only logical to assume that Pique/Shakira sealed their own 60-point lead fate by oversharing all that kissy face content on Twitter & Facebook.

Though the general Spanish public has spoken, our dear readers have not. Do tell, Kickettes: shall we customise our PDA sickness containers with our usual pink stripe theme or bedazzle the hell out of it and call it a day?

    Shakira's talent trou the years has been going down, she is a disgrace to us with lyrics so dumb and nonsense, she started very good in the 90's but her decline started probably with the CD Loba and from that moment just went from bad to worse to the point where now is a copy-cat of the american divas and even worse that compensating the lack of talent it is about showing more skin….and leaving her long time boyfriend for Pique was another bad example of whom supposedly is a role model. She already was seeing pique before she left De la Rua and in her twitter page something like…this willl be a temporary separation,etc.,etc….it was a laugh in the face of all the fans. The relationship with Pique won't last, it is easy to see trough, time will confirm it.

  2. Pili says:

    I love this couple and I always will. Prior shakira's relationship was not publicized basically because her ex was a non-famous bloodsucker. This couple has all the ingredients to be on the spotlight and of course the media is milking every opportunity to make millions and millions. All haters get a life and let people love each other and be happy! This world would be a better place to live with more loving couples like Shaki & Pique!!

  3. Viv says:

    I agree with Candice,
    the captain and his journalist woman in fact disgust me more

  4. Agnes Wonka says:

    yes! omg! I thought people was blind about them, but once I see I was wrong. PEOPLE ARE NOT STUPID!!!
    They don't believe what is an obvious fake

  5. Charlie says:

    It is not their fault to have the papparazi and bystanders following their every move and feeding it to the media. Seems to me like they're trying to live a normal life despite all the frenzy around them.

    • Cedar Falls says:

      I think you may have missed the part where they tweet about each other, talk about each other in the press, sell private pics to magazines, grope each other ON STAGE and PDA in full public view while other celebrities who genuinely want to keep to themselves somehow manage to close their hotel curtains and holiday at private villas. But yeah, maybe you're right and they're not milking their relationship for publicity.

      Look! That pig has wings!

  6. Alex says:

    the entire relationship is bullshit. i stayed at the westin in providence for the usa-spain friendly and at 2 am i was tipsy and smoking a cigarette outside and watched his dork ass sprint to a cab with a female waiting for him inside.

  7. Marina_Isabella says:

    haters gonna hate.

  8. xoWinnie says:

    oh my god! i missed so much while i was gone! D=
    but it didn't take long for the Piquira backlash to catch on!
    i like Shakira, but i didn't know cougar-ific relationships
    caused one to turn into a pole-dancing exhibitionist.

  10. lolatengo says:

    I think their pictures are hot. He looks delighted to be with her and I hope it lasts. I like that she went to watch a game without tons of makeup.

  11. Great post thanks for sharing!

  12. [...] Spain has had enough of Pique and Shakira. [Kickette] [...]

  13. emma says:

    o' im so glad people are finally seeing throgh these two .
    but i think it's definitely shakira who is the barfy one , gerard seems much more laid back while shakira probably hires her own paperazzi ( i reckon she hired the paps as far back in july 2010 in ibiza)
    she's probably still trying to make antonio jealous or trying to get back at him for something.idk

  14. gilly b says:

    I'm glad people are starting to see through these blatantly PR-fabricated relationships. What happened to the days when a fake relationship wasn't paraded so obviously? Trust, there have been many and as one commenter here has said, it aint new. Shakira has lost her edge, maybe since the image started to trump her music, and their growing annoyance affects her worse than Pique. She's the one who had equal, if not greater, status before; now she's like some desperate cheerleading WAG. Kinda sad.

    • Maria says:

      Yeah.
      I like shakira, she's talented and seem like a lovely person, but her relationship with Pique seems so PR-fabricated. Shakira has always been low-profile when it comes to her relationship and personal life but now out-of a sudden, around the time of the release of her new album she and Pique announces their relationship. PIque used to be low-profile too, but after the photo of him and Ibra many people started calling him gay and sometimes it looks like he's using this very publicized relationship with Shakira to prove his masculinity. And shakira is using his new status of World Champion to promote her latest album since her previous one, She Wolf was one of her lowest selling album.
      This is sad… Because I like both of them and they're talented on their own but sometimes it hard to believe that such romance is not PR-fabricated because both of them used to be so low-profile and out of the sudden they changed their ways and sometimes it seems like they're trying to attract attention.
      DOn't get me wrong… I like them, but since I like them I think it's very disapointing to see them looking like two attention seakers.

  15. Renee says:

    Speaking of nauseating. Check out Wesley Sneijders new tattoo.

  16. Carina says:

    No news there. They're incredibly annoying and their relationship looks completely fake. They just put on a show for the cameras.

  17. indianmuggle says:

    I agree with Anita above. At first I felt jealous..there's something about celebrities dating celebrities that makes me feel left out and inferior..wouldn't mind if it was a commoner..but I am a huge fan of Shakira since Laundry Service, the first English/Spanish Album I listened to properly and a huge fan of Gerard Pique and I'm really happy for them and really happy that my favourite club and favourite singer are associated.

    BUT in fact it's mostly relief that she's not with Lionel Messi as I had been foolishly suspecting ages before I heard Shak/Pique rumors as that would have rendered me emotionally shattered..
    <3 to LEO

  18. [...] AN ENTIRE NATION SAYS ‘GET A ROOM!’ Shikira and Pique are totally nauseating, according to the people of Spain. // Kickette [...]

  19. S4Jill says:

    I'm totally over it, I like Shakira but I'm not overly keen on Pique so this couple doesn't go down well with me. But not to say say I'm not happy for them. I just don't want to see it.

  20. Pam says:

    Hey, what's the big deal about their PDA? They seem happy. Last I heard, Spain was a free country. If they want to kiss and make out, so be it! We should be glad for them because happiness is not really that abundant in this world. If they are happy together, then more power to them!

  21. Anita says:

    I think the correct title for that poll should be "Most Envied Couples" because the couple mentioned are famous, talented and seem geniunely happy.

    I personally love Shakira and Pique, i don't thik i will get tired of them :)

    • Zahara says:

      i agree..sure , theyre a bit over the top with PDAs but they do genuinely seem happy! so good for them!

  22. Caroline says:

    I like the couple!! They shouldnt care about what people think of them….if the love each other enough then they should continue doing what they are doing. Shakira is really nice, has a beautiful voice, and know how to dance!!! Pique really knows how to play soccer and work with his team!!!!! I think they look really cute together. I know it’s onl my opinion but I disagree with the haters…..if u don’t like their publicity then don’t read it! .

  23. Cella.xx says:

    they are booooooriiing….

  24. Jen says:

    Love the fact that there is a Cosmo Armenia…..where, oh where can I get a copy in the US. Hate this couple, am so glad I am not on twitter, and can avoid most of the gossip/talk/kissy face that goes on between these two!

  25. Lotte says:

    It’s the same old sad story. First everybody Loves you, then everybody hates you. It smells of jealousy and is not very pretty. They both seem quite sweet to me and I don’t mind sweet people in love. Even if they happen to be famous.

  26. Caity says:

    I don’t mind the couple. It’s not like they phoned up the paparazzi and told them to take pictures of them. They seem to be happy and want to show the world their love which, explains the reason why Shakira posted that picture on her Twitter, i mean why can’t they, normal people do it all the time and they get away with it. Why can’t Shakira and Pique? All I'm trying to say is if people don’t want to look at them don’t read articles about them

    • Lotte says:

      You are so right!

    • Tapioca says:

      "It’s not like they phoned up the paparazzi and told them to take pictures of them."

      I think you might be wrong there. I wonder how else they managed to keep away from the photogs when they first got together (because they had to split from their significant others and leave a timely gap so she especially wouldn't get heat for cheating on her fiance), yet now the paps always know where they are?

      And I try to avoid articles about them, but when she's hogging the camera when I'd really rather watch the actual, y'know FOOTBALL involved in the Copa Del Ray final it's frickin' annoying! Surely if she wanted to stay in the public eye she should try releasing some decent music, 'cos She Wolf stunk like a dog that died choking on a skunk…

      • Caity says:

        I disagree, I love She Wolf and all her music. I'm still not convinced about what you said was wrong but I guess we'll never know

        • Tapioca says:

          I loved the first 2 spanish language records (even though I don't speak spanish) and Laundry Service and Oral Fixation 1 & 2 were pretty good, but the last 2 records have been really poor by her own standards and I think she knows it – hence the PDAs, try-too-hard videos and leeching onto Barcas fanbase. I would have thought she'd be smart enough to realise that talent always outlasts sex appeal, but her latest antics seem like she's desperate to push the "sexy" angle. *Sigh*

          • caity says:

            Her talent is her voice and her dancing, these combined make her a true unique singer! From her first song I heard which she sang was Hips Don't Lie, although it's not as bad as the pole dancing in Rabiosa she's always had sex appeal. She is a talented woman and its sad that she feels as though she has to strip off to get attentionbut I feel her singing hasn't fallen below the par. I feel the exact opposite to you when it comes to her album, although I liked her first three albums I have liked She Wolf and Sale el Sol better but I guess thats just an opinion.

            • A Shakira fan says:

              Shakira is very talented, she's creative, she writes, composes, produces her albuns and she's smart. I love Shakira and as a fan I think it's disapointing to see her wasting her talent by promoting herself with the same antics as crappy and untalented singers like Rihanna and Britney, when she could be outshinning both of them if she had stayed trued to herself and her talent. Shakira is by far one of the most talented female popsingers around but she's wasting her talent by putting image above her artistic skills.

  27. Arsenalfever says:

    I think what's nauseating about these two is that they both use each other to increase their fame/be in the public eye. She's at all his games and I'm sure it pisses a lot of hardcore Barca fans to see her there. I liked Shakira when she was Colombian and had black hair. Now she thinks shes spanish and is using her boyfriend to invade football games and to make crappy World Cup songs. Go back to playing the guitar Shakira and Pique….well you just go and keep playing

  28. Maxima Decima says:

    The thing is, I have no problems with Shakira, and likewise I have no problems with Pique. It's when they are in the papers shown together and they're kissing each other, all over each other, or otherwise in the nude with the windows open. This is what nauseates people.
    I don't want to compare but it's not like other couples when in the news they are doing other romantic things together (things that don't involve their lips all over each other) and even doing charity work together.

    • kathryn says:

      Exactly! I like both separately but together i just cant stand it! it's obnoxious!

  29. Trish says:

    The only thing that bothers me about Pique-Shakira is my unrelenting desire to take a comb to her hair.

  30. Nienke says:

    I'm happy I'm not the only one who's sick of watching them do iewie. Clearly not the only one… Haha :) . This is funny to me, right now. But usually, I can't laught with it. It really is disgusting. The first couple of months of their relationship, they couldn't keep it secret enough. And now suddenly they do everything in public. They can be together, but please, do it normal.

  31. Sahar says:

    I am so sick of Shakira/ piqué. I don’t dislike them but they are constantly posing for camera. Shakira never used to be like this. She was always private about her personal life and the same goes with piqué. I wonder why they feel they have to put on a show.

  32. Mel says:

    I'm so over them, everything is so hyped up. They CRAVE attention. However I'm not craving them…….

    Next please!

  33. eve says:

    It’s not CR and Shayak?..

  34. Hot4Spurs says:

    I just wonder when she'll come up preggers. Her eggs ain't getting any younger ya'll.

    • Betty says:

      Haha! that was sarcastically funny. Whats with all the thumbs down?

      • Hot4Spurs says:

        I know right? I was only stating the facts. She's what, mid thirties? I like Shakira and Pique so it was not a mean comment.

        • ochocincosays says:

          yea that happens alot around here =), i love my fellow kickettes and our mostly like minded reactions but sometimes. . . y'all be tripping. BUT anywayz can you imagine a little one thats half pique/shakira, the adorable-ness that baby would ooze if it got mommys hair and daddys eyes!! . . . i mean as long as we dont have to watch the fertilization process of course =P

          • Hot4Spurs says:

            Yes! That would be one HOT looking baby! His lips and eyes + her hips and the ability to "shake what yo momma gave ya" = perfection.

  35. Sarah, Madrid says:

    So I hope message received for now pique-shakira. I don't get how actually percentages went to other couples and they voted for the other two. I am not biggest fan of Sara/iker but for me they are no-where near the level of nauseating of these two.

    I really dont follow celebrities couple much, but these two manage to annoy me with whatever I hear and read about them.

  36. Gladys says:

    I don't mind them so much but I am relieved, given how famous some of the Barca players are, that the rest of the team is pretty low-key about their ladies.

  37. Disappointed says:

    Rant begins:

    If they looked genuine – like early Posh & Becks – it would be sweet, but they're absolutely performing for the cameras. I do think HE can't quite believe he scored with the woman whose poster he used to fapp to when he was 14, but she's definitely playing the PR angle. The evidence:

    • Thea says:

      Well hey whatever works – like I've always said regarding this hook up – it's a visit to a place call Cougar Town and people generally pass through it, rather that make it their home so to speak!

    • MeSergio&SaraIker says:

      Couldnt agree more!!

    • Disappointed says:

      First came all the denials, then the completely ridiculous public statement about her break-up from her the day of the FIFA awards, then the private pictures that 'mysteriously' ended up in 2 magazines, then the over-the-top performance to make sure all the cameras were on her at the Copa Del Rey final, then the over-the-top performance to make sure all the cameras were on them at the Osasuna match, then the boat trips, the Twitter pics, the deliberately leaving open their hotel blinds so GP3 could flash his naked butt at the paps (when your paying millions for hotels and security this doesn't happen accidentally!), then dragging his poor team mates who'd just won the Champions League and probably wanted to celebrate with their families on stage at her concert to make the biggest night of their lives all about her.

      Shame. Kick-ass brunette Shakira would never have stooped to this s**t, because the music stood on its own. Now she's a pole-dancer masquerading as a musician and I'm a ex-fan.

      Over

      • Thea says:

        It's called Media Malipulation – and they are all at it. No one outside of Spain had heard of Pasta Sauce till Iker and the world cup, to no one is white than white! Least she is not a WAG but an equal to him, who can hold her own in a relationship.

      • Por dior says:

        Totally agree with you, i was gonna write the same thing , I really think they like all the attention. It was embarrassing to see how Pique was constantly promoting shakira´s concert ,whether if it was on twitter or even on his champions league celebration speech in camp nou.Or her calling him her "sun" (in reference to the name of her album )….

        But hey my madridista vein is happy to know that is not one of our boys doing those things .

      • Agnes Wonka says:

        your username is very appropiate!

    • Agnes Wonka says:

      i agree! god bless you!

  38. gin_in_teacups says:

    I'm not fussed about Pique/Shakira either way. But Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are awesome sauce and it saddens me that they were included in this poll at all.

    • Gladys says:

      Totally agree with you!!!! Cruz and Bardem – I just don't get the hostility. Both seem so nice and intelligent and have known each other for years.

      • Lisette says:

        I like them both, but I suspect it would be different for Spaniards. Maybe seeing them day after day in the tabloids would sour peoples' opinions. Also, they'd probably be in closer proximity – it's like when people think all foreign films are amazing, when in reality they're just seeing the good stuff that's allowed to travel abroad.

        (Wow, that was a strained analogy.)

        Also, I read an article in the Times of London (behind a paywall) from a pseudonymous journalist complaining that Bardem was rude and a diva to her, and his team rigidly controlled what she was *allowed* to write about him. She says it was the closest she ever came to losing her temper after years of interviewing over protected, idiotic celebrities.

        • Anna says:

          That's not the first time Bardem was rude to journalists. He did the same thing to journalists in LA, heard similar about Penelope.

  39. Sergz says:

    I agree with the poll. it's too much touchy feely with that couple, can't they just walk around together without copping a feel?

  40. Kate says:

    I think it's high time Kickette starts investing in customized barf bags. I need mine yesterday! (preferably bedazzled)

  41. Lilly says:

    I don't find them nauseating, just weird. I don't care about other people's relationships that much actually – dealing with my own is a handful as it is!

    • Lisette says:

      Agreed. I just don't care enough to have strong feelings either way as a couple. (I'm a huge fan of Shakira on her own, as a singer.) But I do sometimes feel suspicious about PDAs. What are people like that trying to prove? We get that you're getting some, you guys. This isn't high school anymore.

      But maybe I should get off my high horse. After all, I find Sara Carbonero hugely irritating, for reasons I can't quite explain. I'm sure other Kickettes are reading that and rolling their eyes, and mentally telling me to get over myself.

      • Sarah, Madrid says:

        I findher annoying too, Sara! But what matter iker being happy, if she is the reason, then fine, we will accept her lol.

  42. Candice says:

    i personally find iker/sara worse, but i can't strongly disagree w/ the majority. :)

  43. Ashlee says:

    Bedazzle the hell out of that container and hand out enough Jack Daniels to take the edge off.

    But do so with class Kickettes and don’t brush your teeth with it.

    Three sweet cheers for a happy couple in love. Ugh.

  44. aria says:

    And Italy's most nauseating couple should definitely go to Pato and Barbara!!!

  45. Thea says:

    Actually got a copy of the magazine today………….found in Budapest Airport! Really don't understand it as surely IKER/PASTA would grate more but hey – majority rules!
