Shakira:

Heavy Metal Goddess

11/16/2006 5:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Shakira: Click to watchColombian hip-shaking sensation Shakira was honored by her hometown of Barranquilla yesterday, with the unveiling of a 15-foot, six-ton iron statue of the singer. The statue does not gyrate.

Shakira played a concert in the city, which doubled as a fundraiser for Shakira's foundation, Pies Descalzos ("Bare Feet"), which builds schools around Colombia.

The sixth school funded by Shakira is set to open in 2008, putting her neck-in-neck with Angelina Jolie in the Hottest Humanitarian competition. Caliente!

That hideous monstrosity does not do the columbian goddess justice, although it is a well deserved honor for such a humble and beautiful person. Congratulations Shaki!!!

Ok Truthlady, you live in Colombia half the year and then when your peso's run out you come back to America and pick lettuce, nice. Or maybe your a mule and stick cocaine filled condoms up your stinking p***y and bring them to the US, nice. Do us all a favor and don't come up here, we have enough beaners here already, thank you.

Shakira was born to a Colombian mother, Nidia del Carmen Ripoll Torrado and an American born father of Lebanese Catholic descent, William Mebarak Chadid, in Barranquilla, Colombia. She's hot and what makes her hotter is her charitable heart.

She is not Mexican. The "b" word as Jon used it was incorrect. That word means "Someone from Mexico", you can look it up in any urban dictionary.

Tony / Jon,

You guys can really try to get people mad...but you guys are trying to hard.
Jon I have a job unlike you who has all the time in the world replying to all the comments said about you. And your right you are free to say and hate who ever you want but honey WAKE UP THE WORLD DOES NOT REVOLVE AROUND YOU!! Oh....before I forget all that anger you have inside of you let it out honey is okay! I understand how does it feel to have a crack head mother and a dad who f***s anything with a hole and lives out of $1.00 frozen dinners. Most common on people who grow up around parents with no manners and no LOVE! Don't worry!!!!

And Jon just stop...really stop! All this BS about Beaners and blah blah blah...it's stupid. Drug smuggling happens all over the world and you know a little too much for being a regular guy (you may say hahaha) your asking people to go back from where they came from, but where should you go back to. Not your mommas p***y cause god knows you'll come back with AIDS.
Ha A h H

let's take it outside huh come on...bitches wont be saying sh*t like this a Maxican face to face little bitches. ADVISE: LIVE ANGER FREE AND YOU LIVE HAPPIER. :O)

Dude, chill the f*** out. First of all, Cracker, Shakira is totally hot. Too bad your pasty ass can't figure that out.

Oh - and the smell? Its your upper lip - brush your teeth once in a while, dickweed.

She has more talent in her left nipple than you have in your entire being I'm willing to bet.

I'll take it outside with ya anyday, man, ANY day.

Seriously - I never knew you could get the internet in a single wide before.

the foundation is called Bare Feet because Shakira does not like to wear shoes. You people read too much into things and if it's not that then you are twisting it around. And the reason why Colombian drug lords don't build schools is becasue they are DRUG LORDS you idiot. Do the drug dealers build schools around here or do anything positive for that matter??
