She’s managed to take over the charts in Latin America and Spain, and finally conquered the U. and the rest of the world with her first English language album, Laundry Service.While it’s the hot body that attracts you, it’s nice to know there’s a pretty big heart in there too.
When you add in her talent for belly dancing (aka shaking that booty), then she becomes a triple threat.
When she was 8, she was inspired to write her first song after her older brother was killed in a motorcycle accident.
She was also beginning to learn belly dancing at this time.
In the media, Shakira’s been recognized by twice by Maxim and FHM on their respective Hot 100 lists.
VH1 and Stuff have also given her similar recognition.
