She looks oddly beautiful…..what’s her ethnicity?????

# 4

she’s black and white but trying to pass for latin (in this video).

# 5

I love this song. She is so pretty!

# 6

she’s back to her x-factor look; i like her better with darker hair, loved her in bleeding love video. but she is still very very pretty

# 7

How is she trying to pass for Latin? How can you pass for a culture? That is the dumbest thing I have ever read. What did JLO try to pass for all those years? believe me, no one wants to pass(so stupid) for Hispanic, why would they unless they wanted to broaden their market. Shakira uses black artist to cross over and gain audience and she is half arab, don’t get me started on JLO! Hispanics are so insecure I feel sorry for them. Passing for South America! LOL!!!

@ ha: What makes you think that she’s trying to look latin? She looks biracial and blends in with the Cubans- who have a large black/biracial population…

The song is a bit boring but the video is OK

Why would anybody punch her?

@megan: I don’t understand your argument, do you mean that hispanics/latinas are ashamed of being hispanics/latinas?

JLO has always mentioned her latina-roots and Shakira shows great pride in both her latina and arab roots, just listen to her earlier records, she was big in Latinamerica before she became famous in the US but although she’s been collaborating with black people doesn’t necessarily mean that she wants to broaden her market, she might just like black- influenced music or want to change her musical style and work with prominent artists within those genres.

Oh please troll, no one cares about Shakira in the english speaking world. Hispanics cannot sing anyway. Shakira sounds like a drunk camel, X-tina is only half Hispanic and she copies Black singers all the time. The only blue-eyed soul singers are Amy Winehouse, Duffy, Joss Stone. Yeah, black and white singers are the best and always will be like Mariah and Leona and Alicia.

leona looks gorgeous in this video and this is a great song.

Jake Nava directed this video and he is responsible for its contents. It is obviously taking place in Cuba which has a very large African population since slavery.

JLO can mention away but she is the one who was totally into coping black music and culture, I have never seen anyone copying a Puerto Rican. Jlo with her fly girl antics on LIVING COLOR, her cornrolls, her ghetto swagger, her professed crush on Larry Fishburn, Diddy and all the rest. Just look at these artist and see who copies who. Name one, just one person in the music industry who copies the Hispanics. JLO went running back to her Puerto Rican roots when Ben dumped her and she had no more A-List men to endorse her career.

She’s very beautiful and the song is lovely. She really has an outstanding voice.

#10, which is probably what Leona is doing. Though she is still singing in English.

No, leona is not trying to be Cuban. Why? Because she can actually sing. So she doesn’t need to imitate like the ones who can’t do.

she has talent but she is so boring, her music puts me to sleep but i don’t doubt her talent she just needs a little push to make her interesting

Trying to look Latin? I am still rolling my eyes and snickering over that one. Firstly, how does one look like a country or culture. I only guessed that the video takes place in Cuba because the environment is poor and falling apart. The cars out-of-date. Seems to me the director was purposely trying to make her look Cuban for his own edification, as if he wants her to be. I’m sure Leona went along with whatever the director wanted.

She does look beautiful and the girl has a wonderful voice. Loved the video, as well. She isn’t like most artists who have to dance around and show all their skin. She can actually sing.

She looks horrible. She’s unique looking but they have her trying too hard to be some sort of sex symbol but she’s not sexy. She’s cute. She’s sort of the poor man’s unattractive version of Mariah Carey. She needs a new stylist her “new look” is not working. 1st she was trying to BE Mariah, then the other pics on JJ had her in almost the exact same picture as Xtina’s album cover – ugh!

I wish people like number 4 would think about how stupid they sound before they write comments. You make yourself look bad.

Love this song,and she looks pretty

WTF why has this become a race/cultural issue? Just enjoy the music people!
Anywho, I love Leona and this video is real cute.

Love this song. Think the vid could have been better. great song though
