Shakira on The View



Did anybody else catch Shakira on The View today? If you missed it, which in all honesty most probably did you can view it here:



Okay, so now that you have seen it too I can discuss what I’ve been wondering since I saw that.

If you didn’t catch it at the beginning – today was “Day of Hot Topics.” Meaning they generally do not have guests on the show and they discuss “Hot Topics” like Sarah Palin resigning as governor of Alaska, Bristol Palin’s baby daddy saying Sarah Palin couldn’t handle being President if she resigned, what will happen to Michael Jackson’s kids, etc.

Shakira comes out as the surprise musical guest and sits down by the ladies. If her very noticeable roots weren’t enough to distract you, you soon come to realize that she is just promoting her new single “She Wolf” and soon-to-be CD. She wasn’t even there to sing! What kind of a musical guest is that?

The hosts seem all happy that she is there and act like they really love her and her music. Do they? I don’t know but it seemed a bit too over the top to be real if you ask me. It also seemed… rehearsed. Again, I do not know if it was – it just seemed so to me. Maybe her record label paid ABC to have her on the show for this special bit of promotion?

They do however have the song up for free at ABC.com if you want to download it. I admit, I did. I like free music. The song has a disco feel to it? I’m really not sure what to think of it yet. I’ll probably really like it if I hear it enough in the car, much like “Hips Don’t Lie.”

So, what do you think of The View appearance? The song? Shakira in general?

Oh! I'm a Shakira fan. At least, I've liked her songs before.

But, it's lame of her to not perform. I mean, that's what she's selling but she's not showing-off the goods! Lame.

:o(

I think you're over thinking this way too much... I actually like her and she mustve had her reasons of why she didn't sing, i'm sure there will be plenty of performances to come! ABC probably squished her in with little time... who knows.

Should've been longer!

I really don't know much about the view but from my past experiences shows like this are almost always usually stage. There's always a rehearsal or something like that :) shakira is pretty cool though.

LOVE Shakira! Evr since Laundry Service, the new song is OK, but I did jam out a bit to it I admit! lol

I have actually stopped watching all the talk shows, they are all so staged, rehearsed and one big fat commercial that I just watch reruns of good old shows.

I've never really been a big Shakira fan.
I'll admit that she's pretty though. In a more natural way than a lot of today's celebrities.

Also, I got your gift in the mail today! Thank you so much!
Sad to say the necklace was broken when I opened it. :( But my mom loved the earrings!

OMG Sheri? Whats wrong with you? Don't be jealous of Shakira. SHe looks awesome and her hair looks fabulous. He new song is really good too. Took me a few listens to like it but the lyrics are quite funny, "Im starting to feel just a little abused like a coffee machine in an outfit" lol thats so weird its cool lol

Anyway Shakira rocks!!! And she is the best looking female singer out there. I mean who else is as perfect as that?
