Shakira's Hips Don't LieMarlene, we have the goods for you on the hip swaying sensation that is Shakira! Born Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, the 29-year-old Colombian-born beauty is engaged to long-time beau Antonio de la Rua. On a more random note, she once got kicked out of choir for singing "too forcefully"!

There's still time to get tickets for her Oral Fixation tour -- she'll be in Dallas and McAllen, Texas beginning tomorrow through Tuesday and will be closing out the year with a couple concerts in Miami.

Julia Robers and Keira KnightleyAdriana, because you and your friend have been feuding about this for so long, we decided to look in to it to settle your score. Julia Roberts and Keira Knightley are not sisters, nor are they related. The research department here at TMZ was not able to find any proof to support the fact that they were in any way family members. However, Julia does share a birthday with actor Joaquin Phoenix on October 28!

For Julia Roberts' photo gallery, click here. And for celebrity look-a-likes (Keira Knightley included!), take a look at this!

Angelina JolieTylethea, there is a new tattoo in honor of the Jolie-Pitt children floating around on Angelina's arm. She has ink on her left shoulder displaying the latitude and longitude for Cambodia and Ethiopia -- the countries in which Maddox and Zahara were born.

As of right now, we don't know of any tattoos for baby Shiloh, but if any more lines of latitude and longitude pop up, we can fairly assume they'll point us in the direction of Namibia.

I am a 54 yr old white female and my husband and myself recently went to Atlanta to see Shakira. I have been a fan of her voice for several years now and love her singing whether English or Spanish as her voice is just Dynamo and so clear, her emotion even singling Spanish tells you what she is singing about and watching her dance is fabulous. She is just sooooooo talented and if you haven't seen her, you should if possible. I was so disappointed with the MTV awards as they passed her up for people far less talented but it's young rockers, that don't know the difference yet. They gave an award to a band called Panic at the Disco that clearly could not carry it off in a live performance, the singers voice cracked about 10 times in 3 min.
But back to Shakira, she is such a nice person, sweet personality and cares that she is giving you a good show. I felt I had my monies worth on this one and wish she was coming to Nashville so I could see her again.
A total Visual and Audio Delight.
A must See

I'm sorry but I don't get it. My wife loves Shakira but I think she has a grating, annoying voice that sometimes sounds like a Hyena. Oh well...

Shakira is one hot muppet! She may not have the best voice, but it's her style and she is a true artist who writes her own words and music, not like studio creations Twitney and Paris!

Them white chicks got nothing on Shakira....

Sorry, I am half colombian, I don't get Shakira, her unkept style, her voice is so annoying, specially when sings in English, my ears can't take it. Her movement are nothing spectacular, maybe to a US audience, but if you ever travel to Latin America, tons of women dance that way, is in our genes and nature, and Shakira does the same belly thing over and over nothing new. Her latest song's introduction with the trumpets is from a Panamian author called Omar Alfano, and another Jerry Rivera already used on his songs "Amores Como el Nuestro" which was very famous, it irrates the hell out of me when I heard that "hip something song" because I think I am going to hear the other one and then is that annoying Shakira voice.

Maybe the fact that she did not win the MTV will clue her in that her voice is horrible, she needs a stylist, and keep singing in Spanish if singing at all. All she does is duet with more famous singer otherwise she would not sell.

I know others will not agree but it is my opinion and I have been "listening" to this torture since she first came out with "Pies Dezcalsos"

And believe or not I used to like her until she sold out became a fake blond with extensions and starting showing skin like so many to sell albums.
