    Soooo cute and talented! :-)

  • Laura

    So untalented and fake with her bleached skin and dyed white/blond hair. She is an Arab you know.

  • Sahra

    She is looking so different.

  • Madeleine

    Before she had her nose job she had a nose like Yasser Arafat.

  • Little Monster

    try as she might she will never be as good as Madonna or Lady Gaga they are queens while Shakira sings like a drunken camel.

    White latino people rule!!
    Black latino have nothing and are still treated like slaves in every Spanish speaking country on earth. There is no racial equity in Spanish speaking countries if you watched BLACKS IN LATIN AMERICA on PBS you will see how people who are not WHITE are mistreated in Spanish speaking countries.

  • Madeleine

    The only RIGHT LATINO is a WHITE LATINO…the rest look like monkeys.

  • A

    @Miguel Resendez: You have issues…leave black people alone.

  • Miguel Resendez

    There is no such thing as racial parity in Colombia only the white latinos own the land, resources, power, money, politics everything in that country is based on skin color as it is in all Spanish speaking countries. The Black Latino is at the bottom of the Spanish speaking socities and are driven out of their homes and farms because of the racism of white latinos. Black Latinos are still seen as the slaves of white Latinos and things will never change. The next civil rights movement will come from SPANISH speaking south American countries because of the vicious extreme racism of the WHITE LATINOS.

  • Zavala

    @Miguel you are 100% correct. In Puerto Rico all of the brown and black Puerto Ricans are still the poorest least educated and discrimated against people on the island. Only the Ricky Martin types are acceptable.

  • Bogota

    Perhaps the black Hispanics in Colombia should go back to PuertoRico where they came from. They are causing all of the problems not the white Colombians.

  • Guadelupe

    Unfortunately, Puerto Rico and Colombia are former slave driven socities obsessed with race and color so I don’t expect things to change any time soon. That is why the colored people in South America former owned by Spain are not demanding justice and rights.

  • Carol

    SHE SANG WRONG THE NATIONAL ANTHEM…..LA LIBERTAD DE UBLIME?? what the hell??? yeah, she’s talented no doubt about that, but she’s NOT colombian, at least not for the colombian people….before she was argentinian, now she’s spanish (many people know what I mean) and has prove it by messing up with the anthem not in the superbowl or some event like that but in the summit of the americas! Colombia is having a new place in international politics…she represents us well by not even knowing her anthem ….SHAME ON YOU SHAKIRA.

  • lexy hates bilson

    She’s so great! Always nice to see this smart and talented Latina on JJ…as opposed to that phoney J-lo!

  • Ana

    Shakira is half Arab. J-LOW is just a ghetto PuertoRican.

  • reba

    JJ, not to be picky; but please address our President with the proper title: President Barack Obama.

  • Colombian

    Y’all are a bunch of stupids. Colombia is less racist than United States. You don’t know anything about this country so it’s better if you all shut up and don’t talk about things you don’t know.

  • sarah

    As a latina I find it so sad to see us latinos attacking each other, why can’t we stick together and represent all the good things that we can ALL offer. Be proud of your heritage/race no matter what/where you are from, instead of bashing another one to make yourself feel better, that will get you nowhere!
