I like Shakira, I do. She has the hips that can shake the world and girl also knows how to work it effortlessly. She is also very spicy looking and has a few of good tunes. There's only one problem - her voice, it has some sort of vibe to it that is so irritating.

Every now and then a song comes along that irritates the feck out of me so much that it turns me into a deranged loon. Hips Dont Lie is one such song. The tuneless horrible vocal, the 'Shakira, Shakira' bit, the trumpet, the inane lyric of "I never really knew that she could dance like this,She makes a man want to speak Spanish Como se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa" Total [email protected]. Hence the 1 star.

I enjoy keeping up on Shakira- I tried to watch her live performance from Live Earth- but honestly people she is one of the worst singers and I love making fun of her.  I can sound just like her- especially in Don't Bother.  She has a ridiculous voice-- often sounding like a strangled goat.  She makes a lot of different noises while singing- but none of them are pleasant to my ear.  Even "No" gets on my nerves after a while.  She sang better in her early years before she started doing that awful Alanis knock-off warble.  Really to me her music and dancing are a joke-I hope she continues with her humanitarian work- if she was not so addicted to fame maybe she could help the children full time!

Latin, ha, whatever, she's Syrian/Lebanese, whatever, just like Salma Hayek. Nevermind, they never cease to use their supposed heritage as their trump card. I think Shakira has no talent whatsoever, which unfortunately, seems to be a trend in the music business.

I feel that Shakira is getting worse everytime she comes out with a new album! At first I did like her a lot when she sang in spanish, because her lyrics of her songs were beautiful. Come on everyone knows for a fact that she is not a singer, she sounds like she is making halloween sounds for a hunted house. When she first started in spanish she didn't dance or move at all, but know she is getting to that line where someone needs to tell her to calm down because is not even dancing. She is sharing her intimate moves and crazy ideas that she beliefs in from her far away heritage. I'm Colombian and is a shame that guys are only interesting in her butt and horny moves. I honestly don't know why she's being consider one of the new latin talents out there, WRONG!!!

I kinda liked her better when had dark hair and sang in Spanish. Granted her voice was never really my cup of tea because at times it reminded me of somebody gurgling or a baby goat. There were times when she got it right and sang beautiful pieces. But now that she's a blonde, she's totally gone downhill. Her voice in English even harder to listen to than in Spanish. She looks like a frizzy poodle now that she's a blonde. Shakira looks like she raided the Goodwill and found old (not vintage) stuff from the 70's. I can understand that she doesn't want to be glam and respect that, but she looks very corriente. Her belly dancing is awful. Her contortions look painful. My mom says she looks like a snake about to give birth. Maybe she's molting, he, he. Perhaps it is part of her eccentricities as an 'artist'. For Americans who aren't use to Middle Eastern and Hispanic culture, they think she is it because they don't know any better. Her lack of mastery in the English language is evident when you listen to her songs in Laundry Service. If you can't do something 100% right, then don't do it at all. Don't use the audience as a guinea pig to test your new skills. We are worth so much more than that.

I like Shakira, she is definitely an entertainer, very outgoing personality, she's really not afraid to be herself. I don't think she can sing but she can really shake her booty,lol, the girl can get down. Like I said she can perform but she is not a singer. She is pretty, though. Oh Shakira, ya gotta love her.

A singer who can't carry a tune. Feel bad for her because people won't tell her she stinks. She's like an ethnic version of Brittney Spears. This is an example how looks complicate entertainment.

She actually is NOT a one -hit wonder. She has been around for many years in the Latin Market. As a singer myself I can say I think she does have talent..You may not like her particular style but her vocals are unique and unusual. So many of these singers sound exactly the same..she does not . I also like the fact she actually writes her own music and can be a somewhat humorous and creative in her lyrics..

She can dance. I'll give her that. But if she is so proud of her hispanic and arabic heritage, Then why does she don belly shirts and dye her hair blonde? Sounds a tad hypocritical to me. This all being said, I don't find her attractive or interesting really. She sounds like she's constipated in "Underneath Your Clothes".

Shakira is a child prodegy and many asshole Americans don't know it.Since there always worried about fashion sex drugs and war. Some of you need to grow up because no matter how much you protest she'll still be making more money than all of you. Because if she flops in America her Latin fans will still except her. I think she has a great voice it's very recodnisable. But if you rejects would listen to her lyrics in spanish and english you'll see she's very talented. VIVO latin music. Owe you guys have to listen to Antolgia from the album pies descalzos(barefoot feet).

Allright people. I myself am a Lebanese/Latin woman, and I do not find in any interest in Shakira. She is a disgrace to the lebanese and spanish community. Before she did the cross over she was COMPLETLY DIFFERENT, she was so innocent purse and her voice was lovely. Now that she did a cross over she cannot sing in english and be honet you guys know when u hear her live that her accent is too heavy. For example on her video objection tango they actually have to use subtitles for you to understand her. I have nothing against her it's just that she's not the same respectable girl that I used to listen too. Now it's all about the dollar bill sign for her and how far she has been willing to go for it.

Shakira is terrible! Why?I'll tell you... 1)She is a bad singer,really,and although her voice is "catchy" she still sings horribly.She copies the voice of Dolores O'Riordan of the Cranberries,and Alanis Morisette.Pretty pathetic cause both Dolores and Alanis are a gazillion times better AND more original than her. 2)She is arrogant,selfish,prompous and lardy.Although she talks about "modesty" in her songs,her life style is a far cry from humbleness! 3)She lip-synchs at her live shows(i.e. playback) even though poor people of Latin America pay half a month's salary to see her and enjoy her awful and unoriginal music.Very disrespectful to the fans. 4)She exploits her Arabic roots and her Lebanese origin to pretend to be a bellydancer.She may be sleazy,she may be a cheap provocateur,but she IS NOT a true bellydancer.Middle-Eastern dance is not the cheap and disgustic a$$ shaking that Shakira does all the time.It is a DIFFICULT style of dance that requires effort,dedication and painful practice to master(I am a bellydancer myself for more than a decade).A well-known and widely respected belly dance teacher has claimed that Shakira has no clue how to belly dance.Does Shakira(one wonders)use original Eastern outfit?No.Sword ballancing?No.Finger cymbals?No.Veils?No.Does she know moves like belly rolls,backbends,hip shimmy,snake arms and hundreds of others typical and obligatory moves to be called a "bellydancer"?No!!Then why does the ignorant Western world say that she "bellydances so well"??I guess because of just that:IGNORANCE!Let me laugh,Shakira. 5)At the same time,she disrespects her Latin American identity,by dying her hair this tacky,cheap blond color to apper more attractive to European and North American crowds,even though it doesn't suit her and makes her look horrid.What respect to her Colombian ethnicity?I see none! 6)She collborates with Pepsi,Reebok etc. to sell more records by advertising her name with a product she -in all likelihood-doesn;t even use!Very cheap trick in my opinion. 7)As if the above is not enough,she is dating the son of a traitor,who caused economy collapse and tremendous suffering to so many people in Argentina.What does she think?She's gonna be the next Evita Peron??Ha! 8)Her copying of bad singers like Britney Spears and role-models like Pamela Anderson is really distasteful I think.More originality wouldn't be a harm. I guess the only reason Shakira sells now,is because she sells this cheap,phony image-a sleazy,hot,platinum blonde Latin American who wiggles her buttocks to attract attention.Very bad if you ask me!

Shakira, is a great performer. She has been in the music Business for 15-or more years. She is The queen of pop in all of Latin America, Look at the globe, find Latin America, you will see its huge, just like her. It wasn't Ricky Martin that started the cross over craze; it was my BELOVED SELENA, who was tragically MURDERED. I hate the fact that people compare Shakira to Britney, Shakira sings and is not afraid to sing, it might not be your typical singing, but its her that is who she is, she has sang that way since she started out. Britney on the other hand blames the sound person all the time when she cant be heard, or try finding her voice behind all of her back up singers. She sucks plain and simple, I think she might possibly be the next milli vanilli. Any way. You don't have to like Shakira, She is not depending on her American career, its just something she wants to try, and I applaud her for not changing her style and staying true to SHAKIRA. She could of easily sold out and changed her whole persona, just to please us picky Americans. She went blond because that is what sells, SEX sells, and if you got it or you can get it GO FOR IT!!! GOOD LUCK SHAKIRA Con mucho cariño de Dallas, TX Melissa Q

She has an amazing voice and amazing talent. She sure can sing her songs (and they're all her own songs!) with such power and spirit. It's too bad she didn't do her album in english earlier, like the same year as Britney did her debut CD. Then maybe Shakira would have been Queen of Pop instead. I can almost swear that she would've been. She has amazing looks aswell and I, apart from some other raters, think she looks just as good in blonde hair as in red or black. I just love it when artists experiment with their personalities and style. Her CD is really great with simple, yet honest and beautiful lyrics. The future in blonde pop belongs to Shakira.

I think Shakira is awesome! A lot of the other latin pop artists out there don't embrace their roots like she does. Her bellydancing skills are pretty good, and she has a great voice. I think Shakira is NOT considered pop trash like Britney. And by the way, for whoever's reading this, she dyed her hair blonde 2 years before she came to the U.S.!!!

There is no doubt that Shakira is a very attractive woman and a very good belly dancer, but as far as singing goes I can not say that she is a good singer. It sounds like she is trying to sing with her tounge in her cheek to me. Perhaps I am being to harsh.
