WATCH: Shakira As ‘She Wolf’? Yes, Please

After watching Britney Spears recycle her way through (still on-going?) tour, and comparing the pop tart’s dance steps to, say, Shakira’s ability to move her limbs independently of each other, it’s a wonder why the Colombian performer hasn’t sweeped America’s reformed sweetheart under the rug. In her new video “She Wolf,” Shakira delivers “a gloriously slinky update on every Italian disco tune recorded in 1979.” Girl power?

    Why is she dancing in Adam Glambert’s rectum?

    Boring.

    ‘Sweeped’, Queerty? Or ‘swept’?

  • Hrist

    Wowza! Definitely not boring. Hooray for some females in the headlines!

    Ewww, she’s gross. Like watching a cheap floor show by an attention whore. I’d rather gouge my eyes out with a grapefruit spoon.

    No wonder the music biz is in such a hole.

    @Hrist: You read my mind.

  • Michael vdB

    Wow….that was a poor quality video. I give her cred for following the footsteps of Beyonce with the clothing, make-up, hair….

  • TANK

    Meh. She yodels.

  • DeAnimator

    I thought Shakira was dead.

    Pay them no attention Shakira. I still laugh at you and Ricky Martin and look forward to everything you guys put out so I can laugh again.

    I f’ing love this song. A friend sent it to me a few weeks ago and my group of friends listen to it nonstop. Love the disco sort of vibe, hate how f’ing close-minded American music tastes are.

  • sal(the original)

    i like,i know girls who get the message and now have an anthem

  • Hrist

    Addendum: Hey, Queerty… How about linking to the version posted on Shakira’s official YouTube channel? It’s much better quality (i.e. the music is actually in synch with the visuals): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBJzZts4qZo

    The video and the music are boring, Shakira tries so hard to be a white woman while dancing like her Arab relatives and her voice is more annoying than ever. She is not investing well the money from her right-wing Colombian padrinos.

    It’s sad that I like Shakira’s music yet Queerty makes me feel shamed about it after reading this post.
    Since you continue to make snide, pompous remarks about the fabulous Miss Britney Spears, I can no longer give your horrible website any more
    of my viewings.
    This is supposed to be a gay/lesbian-friendly site?! LMFAO &
    How unfortunate you all fail.

    Sincerely,

    An intelligent & unamused fan.

    P.S. Long live Perez Hilton

    absolutely love her!

  • JOEI

    the only reason she isnt bigger then britney (altthough her global sales easily surpass brits) is bc she has an accent.. think about it, had shakira been born american and had an american dialect, she would be much bigger in states.. but the hell with that.. she is still one of the biggest stars internationally, we forget..AMERICA ISNT THE ONLY DAMN COUNTRY .

    A dirty mind is a joy forever.
    But don’t talk bad about others if you don’t like others to talk about you.
    That’s why Amsterdam-Nederland is the Gay Capital City of this World.
