Shakira: Her Sweats Don’t Lie

YouTube Preview Image

Either she’s trying to win us over by pretending she’s just a normal chica who hits the trackie bottoms when the going gets tough, or, as some unreliable peeps might have it, she’s preggo. Pray to San Iker it’s the former, for all our sakes.

BTW, a scantily clad Shakira pole dances in her new music video for “Rabiosa” (feat. Pitbull) before finishing off her version of cinéma vérité in a perfect, self-exposing split. We’d love to know your thoughts about her bump ‘n grind when you get a sec, Kickettes.

    you know what? thanks for replying my comments….you make me feel important! *raise an eyebrow*

  2. Ash Menon says:

    Not that I don't think she's got an insanely slamming bod, I just found the video extremely pathetic. I mean, come on, BRITNEY could do better than this, and she's about as exciting as a asthmatic guppy. Whoever directed these videos needs to go back to doing gonzo porn, it's definitely his calling.

  3. Nienke says:

    She's not pregnant. That's just what her body looks like. She already had a tummy like that in Hips Don't Lie. My body is like hers, I'm not pregnant.
    I think her being pregnant with Pique's baby would be terrible, as if it's not bad enough already that they're making out on stage. Iew iew. They're not gonna be together forever.

  4. Homeskillet07 says:

    …..she makes me uncomfortable. like it all of her music videos i find myself cringing at some of the things she does. i have to agree with some of the previous comments about preferring her old music to her current music…although i do really like Loca…but in general she just makes me feel uncomfortable and awkward…and i'm not a big fan of cougars :P

  5. Crackers says:

    But this is no different from what she's been doing since she was 24. The pole is totally OTT, but her actual moves are nothing surprising if anyone's been watching her videos over the last ten years.

  6. iram1982 says:

    thank you…completely wrote what i feel every time i see videos like this when britney, christina, and others who feel the need to parade around half-naked and thrust their bodies. What happened to being classy, sophisticated, and a good role model to teens?

  7. @DebStimson says:

    lol I was waiting for someone else to comment on this! I thought the same thing when I saw the Barca celebration video. No wonder he couldn't keep his hands off her & had that big grin on his face! :p

  8. @DebStimson says:

    I think she's absolutely beautiful with the dark hair & bob. I like it a lot better than the blonde hair.

  9. @AgnesWonka says:

    I agree with you girl!
    I'm sure you must be pretty and fit! we like Irina coz her beauty has no comparison!!!
    all the girls who criticize her….are green of envy!
    love you xxoo

  10. @AgnesWonka says:

    I didn't understand a word you said :S I don't get what you mean!

    • Lilly says:

      If you are so immature so as to be spending your time idolising people you have never met and praising them on the basis of their appearance alone (Irina) whilst slamming people who have harmed no one (Shakira), then I don't really see how you can be setting a good example to kids. Anyway, hopefully you are this lame only in your non-professional capacity.

      • @AgnesWonka says:

        you don't know me to say how mature i am.
        I don't idolize people….you do! you idolize people like Shakira who is intolerant to people of certain religions. did you know that?
        I like Irina, because moreover that i aprecciate her beauty, I also support the fact that she has her own career, and doesn't need her boyfriend's fame, like Shakira does!
        my students like me a lot, I teach them always to say waht they think, to be critical and not believe everything that comes froem the media. That's what they taught me in uni, that a good teacher has to do!
        anything else…?

        • Lilly says:

          Fair enough. My comments were not intended to defend Shakira in particular, but to criticize remarks that I viewed as unduly harsh. My comments specifically about your job came from the fact that I feel really strongly about education. But I got carried away and made rubbish comments myself. Apologies for that.

    • Marina_Isabella says:

      Who the hell asked you for any evidence in regards to what you do for a living in real life, about your twitter accnt, or your age? Nobody!

      I wonder what kind of entitled, self-centered person you must be, to think that your sh*t-talk type of opinions are going to be generally celebrated, and not the entire opposite.

      • @AgnesWonka says:

        you are the one who started attacking me just coz you disagree with my opinions!
        and, really I'm not self-centred…I just laugh at you!….and how you care all I comment!

  11. @AgnesWonka says:

    I'm not jealous!! I don't even like Piqué!

  12. gourcufflover says:

    She cant dance for shish ! Dig the Wig!

    She looks good for a 34yr old, too bad her music makes my ears bleed.

  13. FootyWithGloss says:

    i can't stop playing this song it's my jam lol

    the short black hair is ttly cute but the pole dancing…. not so much. i mean don't get me wrong dayum she is one hot chica – and more power to her for being so sexually comfortable with herself! – but i think everyone who has seen the vid straight up thinks "lol what are you doing?". Cus we all know she doesn't need to be doing that kind of shit.

    if she keeps this up, the only thing left to do would be to just take all her clothes off in the next video.

  14. Leaaa says:

    I have nothing against Shakira but in my opinion she just degraded herself from the woman I admired to yet another pornographic pop star with average music. A bit sad really that she feels she has to stoop this low and I think it reflects a pretty depressing society.

  15. Clare says:

    She looks gorgeous with that hair in the clip, but it's disappointing. I always had some respect for her because I thought she was one of the few female popstars who didn't stoop to acting like a stripper to sell records… so much for that idea.

    • Leaaa says:

      I just read your comment and realised i commented with almost the same thing later, sorry! You speak words of truth though :)

    • Crackers says:

      Honey, have you SEEN any of her videos in the last ten years (since Laundry Service)?

      This is actually pretty tame compared to some of her other vids, though those didn't feature a pole.

  16. cisarovna says:

    The video and song are ok, but just want to say that i hope if she ever has a baller baby, its not a situation where she ends up looking desperate or trashy. I might not be her biggest fan, but I do think, sex kitten or not, she is a strong savvy woman and I would hate for her to be made silly by some ball bouncing buffoon (not necessarily Pique, just generally footballers)

  17. Ashley says:

    This is all for show. She only cares about putting her music out there. Beyonce has taken over and no cares about Shakira anymore thats why she has to resort to all this.

  18. bääääääää says:

    yes i can and thats the problem…… i don't like the video… she is a gorgeous woman and don't have to strip…
    so ridiculous .. it let us women look like fools….
    we are ladies and not cheap sex objects!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. eg4 says:

    Yeesh … if a woman only has to don a pair of sweats to have pregnancy rumors started, then people must think I'm pregnant every day.

  20. Melanie Gedeon says:

    yeahh i wanna look like that when im 34.
    and be married to pique…. (:

  21. samiha says:

    damn she's flexible!!! it's insane!! =p

  22. chay says:

    taking what? She's not the only entertainer out there, she knows this. If we all looked this fab at her age, we would be rocking it too–believe me

    • MsMe says:

      Taking money and braincells. We have now many times seen Shakira´s booty, which is a nice one. Now I would like to see proof of her rumoured musical talent. It would be nice to hear something more elevating from the radio than the eternal LET´S HUMP recorded by various artists.

      • @DebStimson says:

        I have to agree with you about "Let's Hump". Too many "top 40" songs seem to be about sex…both male & female performers. It'd be nice to hear something with a different theme.

      • Ash Menon says:

        If you want proof of her musical talents, look further back into her discography. She had some absolutely fantastic stuff when she was still a tad indie. I like the fact that she experiments with the sound nowadays, like using electro and techno for She Wolf, and also her classic merengue and latin flavours for Sal El Sol, but like most experiments, it doesn't turn out well. Still, the music is an acceptable phase, it's healthy for musicians to experiment. What's up with the stripper video? Cheapness aside, both this video and the one for Loca look like amateur documentary footage of the strippers and streetwalkers of the city, with her music in the background.

  23. poprock princess says:

    Don't like it.

  24. Maria says:

    Haters are going to hate …. I love it don't you… NOT!!!!

    1. I agree with the Mods … Agree to Disagree … but c'mon can we say R – E – S – P – C – T …

    2. I don't like this version … I love the Spanish Only Version … I sing it all the time … it's really catchy & the music just makes you want to dance … I love Shakira then a now … & will always do …

    3. I like that hair … and her on the pole … I wonder if Geri is going to get a pole installed at place now (LMAO) …

    4. I don't think she is pregnant & if she is … I'm wishing her the healthy pregnancy and I can't wait to say what Geri+Shakira = … jjajajja ….

    • @DebStimson says:

      "I wonder if Geri is going to get a pole installed at place now (LMAO) … "

      hahaha…it's probably being installed as we speak…er…type.

  25. Sara P says:

    I actually really like the video….she is just doing what sells now a days ladies!! She has a hot body, a hot boyfriend and a pretty terrific life…what’s not to flaunt? I do personally think that she needs to get rid of the bleach blonde hair and stick to the short brunette wig….looks hot on her!!

    And preggers?? OMG….is this for real???

  26. aurrie says:

    she should go back to her natural brunette hair colour because her hair is starting to look over dyed and fried…aswell as dry…

    • chay says:

      i agree with you on this one. She is quite beautiful with her natural colour. her hair has been looking a bit straw-like these days. Maybe she will resort to extensions?

    • Crackers says:

      She does look better with the dark bob wig than with her own dyed hair (it does look fried).

      I'd say she should go back to brunette, if nothing else to give her hair a break.

  27. chay says:

    i agree: she looks so cute with that bobbed style!

  28. chay says:


  29. earidurt says:

    i'm on the fence about this video. there are things i like (sexy boys), things i don't. the song is kinda cool. i like it. and like every shakira song i am sure it will blow up and be played non-stop. i gotta say though, some of the comments here are so ugly and seem to come outta nowhere. shakira is beautiful and has done such good work on stage as well as off. she is someone to be admired or at the very least respected.

  30. earidurt says:

    very mature of u shaz….kudos!

    • earidurt says:

      ^ it's called sarcasm, don't misunderstand….shaz is anything but mature. she needs to learn how to express herself effectively and not act like a 5 y-o.

  31. Wow says:

    exactly, lol!(:

  32. the woman irritates me so much! and she has to show her ass to sell reacords? the song is pretty bad too :|

  33. JNas says:

    The video is decent if you take out the pole dancing. And I don't say that because I have anything against pole dancing (especially when you have an amazing body)… I say that, because it doesn't fit with the rest of the video… Underground hipster basement party AND cut to pole dancing. It's like mixing the Britney "Stronger" video with a video you'd normally see from some Indie/Alt band. Just one big ol'mess.

  34. aurrie says:

    she looks good as a brunette…i mean dark brown is her natural hair colour……is she afraid that people might not recognize her?

  35. Says_who says:

    I agree with you! The song's catchy and part of me wished that | was at that random factory party. In regards to the whole pole dancing segments, she made it look sexy and effortless. I'll be taking pole dancing lessons later this month and I would be so grateful if I could look half as hot as Shakira does in her video.

    Haters can move to the left!

  36. Says_who says:

    Who else noticed the Pisco Potron product placement in the video? Why the director placed the liquor in a display case with a girl and a bunch of balloons is beyond me. At least Pitbull wasn't in the video. Have you seen that man's face without his sunglasses on? Ewww!

  37. FootballDaze says:

    I used to like her a lot about 10+ years ago or so, when she was singing in Spanish, and was rocking the long dark hair and moody attitude. I still play some of those old cds, like "Pies Descalzos" and " Donde Estan los Ladrones". She was so so so fantastic back then (at least to my personal taste). The lyrics were empowering, the melodies so lovely, and I felt she had artistic integrity. I just don't know what happened. Suddenly she dyes her hair blonde and she's shaking her ass and writhing around on the floor covered in mud, pushing her breasts in everyone's face and moaning. I don't know. If that was her own career decision, more power to you Shakira. God knows you've become more well-known and more wealthy. But as an old fan of hers, cds like "She Wolf" and "Oral Fixation", well, they just don't make sense. But like I said, if it was her choice to make that transition: wonderful. I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for the old Shakira, who seems to exist only in old Youtube clips and my iPod.

    • LindaTuga says:

      I co-sign to every single word you have wrote. I am seriously dissapointed at Shakira. "Pies Delcalzos" is one of my favourite cds of all time…can't believe how much she has changed since then.

      Cambió mucho y no para mejor :(

    • Melanie Gedeon says:

      I think she's just trying to prove that she's not as old as she is.
      Not that she's old or anything, but like I remember listening to her in 10 yrs ago
      And that's how a lot of people remember her.
      She's going through a reinvention period by completing changing herself.
      in my opinion :)

    • Crackers says:

      She's fine as long as you only listen to her, I think – her music is still catchy, and I love the song (though I like the Spanish version much better, it feels like the lyrics, how do you say it, flow more naturally there. Same with all her other songs for which she recorded English and Spanish versions).

      But yeah, I remember pre-2001 Shakira too, from her days performing at the Latin Grammys. I liked her slightly alt look then…..not so fond of the image change that came with the blonde hair, but she's still ok to listen to in Spanish.

  38. Zahara says:

    i know! she never leaves my top 5 most beautiful women!

  39. Lilly says:

    Girl, u ve got issues

  40. Tea says:

    Love Shakira and she is sexy. I would kill to look like her. I really don't think this is any different from her other videos. I like them all.

  41. KicketteMods says:


    agree to disagree and leave it at that please or I'll delete the whole thread.

    Thank you.

  42. mochara says:

    She doesn't need to take her clothes off to look fabulous! But since her and Piqué's relationship has gotten pass-the-bucket sickening I've kinda gone off her a bit….

  43. MsMe says:

    Attention junkie. Something makes me think that the publicity is more important to her than the relationship itself. She wants to be adored and idolized. Get a self-esteem Shakira!

  44. Rachel says:

    Ugh Shak, take it down a notch. As always, she looks gorgeous.

  45. footballandme says:

    1st of all I'm not "mate" and 2nd of all I disagree with all you've said.

    Shakira has done nothing wrong and your having a go. And more beautiful? I think you need to take another look and look up the definition of "beautfiul"

  46. indianmuggle says:

    I wish I were as flexible as her! She's my idol!I love singing her songs too! I don't dance but I wanna learn just to be like her!

  47. JA7 says:

    I think she looks gorgeous with black hair..but did she really have to go all out with the whole pole dancing?

  48. CharlieGooner says:

    No nO NO!! She cannot be preggers! Gerard and Cesc are going to have children in the same year! Me and Cesc are totally not ready yet… Anyway, I’m hoping she’s just a phase (I love her but not for Geri- oooh, maybe for Rafa like in “Gypsy”)

  49. Devilish-x says:

    I'm not too keen on the video tbh.. Dont get me wrong she looks hot. But I dont get why shes gone all out in this vid?
    Shes looked so amazing in all her previous videos but for me this vid is a little OTT.
    but anyways I'm sure Pique wont be complaining..

  50. Zahara says:

    i love this song!
    but it does sound better on the ipod.
    and i do think shakira could have done better on the video though..

    but still ,pique, you must be happy man

  51. Bri says:

    Ok. More importantly-at 1.15 in that video…where did they get the younger and fluffier Iker look alike???? I'm not crazy am i?

  52. Sarah, Madrid says:

    Lucky Pique, all I have to say! I thought he would feature in the video :P !

  53. @AgnesWonka says:

    I hope she's not pregnant! the world can't handle another person that gross!!!

    • Shaz says:

      Couldn't agree more!

    • Lotte says:

      For gods sake! Whatever prompted these nasty comments? What on earth has Shakira done to deserve this? And what's with the Irina this and Shakira that?! Who cares?! They are two beautiful women that might, or might not get pregnant, and have likewise beautiful kids. Stop the hate already!

      • FootballDaze says:

        Agreed. If either one is using their male counterparts for publicity (which no one knows for sure), they're big boys. I'm sure they can take care of themselves.

        • Sarah, Madrid says:

          I am still not quite sure why would people think that Shakira would be using Pique for publicity, like seriously why? she really doesn't need it, does she? even if she does as you said he can take care of himself.

          Agree with Lotte! really this is not healthy. Wags are not in a competition I think!

          • Ashley says:

            I am still not quite sure why would people think that Shakira would be using Pique for publicity, like seriously why? she really doesn't need it, does she?

            Yes she does need the publicity. Shakira has become irrevelant, so she needs to do something to make people interested in her.

            • Lotte says:

              How many do you think have heard of Shakira, compared to those that have heard of Gerard Pique? I mean football fans know of Shak and Pique, but those strange people who couldn't care less about football knows Shakira alright, but they have never heard of Pique. I swear. I know a lot of those people. And also, if she gets one big hit now she would have gotten it with or without Pique. And then she´s interresting again.

            • Sarah, Madrid says:

              " Yes she does need the publicity. Shakira has become irrevelant, so she needs to do something to make people interested in her ".

              Other than football fans in the world and people who really watch football closely know Pique, even some people who watch football don't know Pique. He is not that famous so she milk his fame to benefit her's. So, convience me that people don't know waka-waka or whenever-whereever or hips don't lie before Pique and because of him this song is getting views.

              • footballandme says:

                So just like Irina got the Sports Illustrated Cover for her own hard work and it had nothing to do with the fact that she is Cristiano Ronaldo's girlfriend?

                Or Coleen Rooney getting fashion ranges and TV's shows because she is just an ordinary girl from Liverpool and not Wayne Rooney's WAG.

                Shakira has been around a lot longer then Gerard Pique.

                • Lotte says:

                  That was the whole point of my comment. Shakira has been, and still is, more widely known than Pique. Her credability is totally independant of Pique. About the other two ladies, well I guess that is a different story. Maybe.

      • @DebStimson says:

        @Lotte ^^this!

    • BlackRose says:

      oh, the bitterness…

  54. IrishBlue says:

    Ok Shakira, you don't have to prove you're hot enough for your toyboy, I get it ok! Now get off that pole for goodness sake.

    • Emily says:

      "Now get off that pole for goodness sake."

      …and sadly, you literally mean that.

    • JPOD says:

      I thought she looked like Alyssa Milano myself! But I do think she looks good w/that style

  55. blake2108 says:

    If she was preggers… How beautiful would their kid be?!
