  • CASSIE

    HEY, JARED- WHY ARE YOU GIVING SHAKIRA A THREAD.? SHE IS ANTI-AMERICA. SHE HATES OUR LAWS. DIDIN’T YOU HEAR WHAT SHE SAID ABOUT OUR IMMIGRATION LAW?. IF SHAKIRA HAD CRITICISED HER NATIVE”S COLOMBIA”S LAWS SHE WOULD BE IN PRISON FOR LIFE. PATHETIC.

  • Sasha

    @CASSIE:
    Her opinion of Americas government , laws and etc have nothing to do with the song.
    As you think that the laws are appropriate she thinks the opposite, that’s why you live in a free country.
    The only thing that is “PATHETIC” here is your comment that is based on your hatred because of someones opinion that differs from yours

  • D

    @CASSIE: Umm……it’s not anti-American to dislike American policy….plenty of people don’t like the new immigration law, that doesn’t make them anti-American, it makes them patriotic because they are discussing and questioning issues with their FREE SPEECH.

  • Thandi

    Can’t wait to see her live in South Africa. I can hardly wait for the opening ceremony! Its so exciting to be South African right now.

  • CASSIE

    #”s 4 AND 5. PLEASE, GO TO COLOMBIA AND SPEAK AGAINST THEIR GOVERNMNET. LET US KNOW WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU. OH, I FORGOT, YOU WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO. YOU ARE GOING TO BE IN PRISON. SHE IS ANTI-AMERICAN. THE ONLY THING THAT SHE LIKES ABOUT AMERICA IT IS OUR MONEY. — NUESTROS DOLARES. I USED TO BE HER BIGGEST FAN, NOT ANY MORE. IT’S SEEMS THAT NOW SOME PEOPLE ARE SO EAGER TO TELL US WHAT’s WRONG ABOUT OUR GREAT COUNTRY, YET THESE PEOPLE’S COUNTRIES ARE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL IN THE REGARDING HUMAN RIGHTS. MEXICO. ANYONE.?.

  • funk;

    I loved it! It’s great love the song.. It’s one of her best in a long time!

  • Sasha

    So just because she is from Columbia she can not share her point of view , she i trying to change things for the better.
    I don’t really want to know what exactly she has said since I’m neither her fan nor I live in America.
    and “GREAT COUNTRY”…
    do you even know what made the U.S.A. so great?
    compared with other countries it is one of the youngest so have you ever asked yourself what made it so popular?
    just two words : nuclear weapon
    But anyway i won’t go in further explaining you’re countries history , hopefully you know it.
    The thing we are arguing about is should someone try and change a law for the better.She might not be an American citizen but if she can help even one person by accomplishing that why not let her?
    I mean is your American money more valuable than peoples lives?

    the bad laws of this world ok!
    shut up haters
    shakira great song and video
    kill it!

  • andres

    @CASSIE she has the right to say what she feels whenever she feels like saying it. If you speak your mind in Colombia, you won’t get arrested; I’m from there, so i would know. That shows how little you know.

    This is a great song! It definitely represents so many great cultures coming together and shows how beautiful TOLERANCE and coming together can be.
    Don’t forget how BEAUTIFUL Shakira looks in this video! <3

  • katty

    wow shaki u are the Best!!
    lov u my girl, and shut up haters shes only try help the world!

  • Ana

    Yeah! World Cup starts on Friday. Great video. The song is catchy.

    @ Cassie, go and hide somewhere. Colombia doesn’t imprison people for criticize them. You are confusing with Venezuela and Iran, where it has happened.

    Dude, get your countries right or shut up.

    Oh, and sweetie, EVERYONE likes your dolares. Get with the program.

  • Ana

    @CASSIE:

    Oh, and FYI, the Immigration Law is WRONG. Like Jon Stewart said, it’s like we’re back in the 1800s. But it seems you’re cool with racial profiling so…what can you do.

  • naomi

    @CASSIE: how stupid are you?

  • jpC

    Hi Cassie:
    A little thing called racial profiling has never been ok. Immigration in this nation is an issue undoubtedly. Your remark only underlines another issue plaguing this nation…..ignorance…..

  • upanina

    j adore la chanson vivement vendredi !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Elizabeth

    Whats the name of the guy wearing the ” this time for Africa” t-shirt name???

  • Lila

    @CASSIE: Waht make you think taht in Colombia you can`t talk against the law or an specific one, we have free of speach, I can say what ever I want while I am not ofeending others and not because of he law or the goverment but because is inmoral.

  • Sheigh

    See it and so cute even I think it’s a pale people presentation of Africa, even settles down in South Africa.

  • tonny oraon

    this is good video

  • Kevin

    @CASSIE: guys its pretty sad that you are all arguing about something so childish on a thread about the world cup. This event is beautiful, not because of the soccer, but because of everyone setting aside their differences and unifying with something they all share: their passion for soccer. It really disgusts me to see people argue and completely disrespect everything that makes the World Cup so great.
