Shakira: Babe of the Week #14 (March 2013)


Shakira
("The Voice" season 4 coach, two-time Grammy winner, highest selling Colombian artist of all time)
Thumbs up= Thumbs down= Thumbs sideways=



Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll was born in Barranquilla, Colombia. With a Lebanese father and Colombian mother, Shakira honors her Latino and Arabic heritage in her music. She wrote her first song at the age of 8 and signed her first record deal at 13. After her first two albums flopped, Shakira took the reins of her third album, becoming involved in every aspect of its production. Released in 1996, Pies Descalzos, meaning "bare feet," sold more than three million copies. The album featured her trademark sound, a blending of Latin, rock, and Arabic musical styles.

While hugely popular in much of the rest of the world, Shakira had not yet achieved a major record on the U.S. pop charts. She moved to Miami with her family to further her goal, and taught herself to write songs in English. She enlisted Emilio Estefan, of Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine fame, to act as her manager and producer. Her first English-language album, Laundry Service (2001), provided Shakira with the success in the United States that she longed for -- the album was No. 3 on the charts, selling more than 200,000 copies in the first week. The songs "Whenever, Wherever" and "Underneath Your Clothes" were both big hits.
"The Voice" returns with the strongest vocalists from across the country invited to compete in the blockbuster vocal competition show's fourth season. Celebrity musician coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton return along with new coaches, Usher and Shakira, while Carson Daly continues to serve as host and Christina Milian as social media correspondent. The show's innovative format features four stages of competition: The first begins with the blind auditions, then the battle rounds, the knockouts and finally, the live performance shows.

During the blind auditions, the decisions from the musician coaches are based solely on voice and not on looks. The coaches hear the artists perform, but they don't get to see them - thanks to rotating chairs. If a coach is impressed by the artist's voice, he/she pushes a button to select the artist for his/her team. At this point, the coach's chair will swivel so that he/she can face the artist he/she has selected. If more than one coach pushes his/her button, the power then shifts to the artists to choose which coach they want to work with. If no coach pushes his/her button, the artist is eliminated from the competition.

Re: Shakira: Babe of the Week #14 (March 2013)

Do you know how many times I have listened to Laundry Service?

10,000 times.

And that's just my favorite of her albums. We've been playing it at Xmas every year, it's as close to tradition as my family gets.

"Lucky that my lips not only mumble
They spill kisses like a fountain
Lucky that my breasts are small and humble
So you don't confuse them with mountains"



Eyes like Yours is my favorite though Underneath Your Clothes is just delicious.

And she is GORGEOUS. I am always impressed by how adorably chunky she is, she's like one of those compact wild cats.

You don't see how interesting looking she is in those photos !

Absolutely TEN THUMBS UP!!!!!!



I need more emoticons for this woman..

She's got a hot body, but I've never been a big fan of her music and there's something about her voice that grates on my ears. Thumbs sideways.

I agree!

A school of rainbow tropical fish turning in unison over a reef, sparkling mist rising up off a torrent plunging over a waterfall, a pulsating aurora borealis, an Olympic gymnast's routine..... the beauty of motion can not be captured in a still photo. Any still photo of Shikira can not capture the totality of her beauty.

This thread needs more brunette pictures. She's one of the few women who looks totally stunning as both a blonde and brunette.

I love her. She's talented and she has class.
