Shakira was in Cannes, France, to walk the red carpet that the 2012 NRJ Music Awards where she received an Award of Honor recognizing her long-standing career. Other winners included Adele, LMFAO, Justin Bieber, and Rihanna. Earlier in the day, Shakira was awarded French Knighthood by the Chevalier de l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Knight of the Order of the Arts and Letters). Others who’ve received such a distinction include Kylie Minogue, George Clooney, and Jude Law.
Lionel Messi won the FIFA Ballon d’Or for the third year in a row receiving 48% of the votes while Cristiano Ronaldo finished second with 22% of the votes. However, our attention is on Shakira who was in attendance and was recently on vacation and provided us with these grainy bootylicious shots of that nice round ass of hers. Anyway, Shakira’s relevance with FIFA goes back to that “Waka Waka” song and continues with her on-going relationship with Barcelona’s Gerard Pique. And with that,it’s been a while but… This Time For Africa.. ONE MORE TIME!
Shakira was amongst the attendees and honorees of the “40 Principales Awards 2011″ held in Madrid over the weekend. Also in attendance were Enrique Iglesias and Jessie J. Shakira received two awards, Most Influential Artist and Best Foreign Artist. Prior to the show she was quoted to saying:
“I’m so happy to be here now, this is Spain’s night, the night of a country I like so much, and I’m really happy to be at the gala of prizes so important for music.
“I hope they give me some good news tonight so I can celebrate tomorrow.” [Source]

The 2011 Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year Tribute to Shakira was held at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas last night. Shakira also recently received her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition, Shakira will also be performing at the Latin Grammys along with Calle 13 and Usher. She’s up for 3 awards including for Best Album for “Sale el Sol”.
Colombian booty shaker Shakira Tweeted this pic w/ this simple message, “Les presento a mi sol… Shak” (Bastardly translation: Here’s the dude I’ll sleep with for the next 5/10 years). 24-year old Gerard Pique, who plays for FC Barcelona, is ten years younger than Shakira, but I’m sure she still tires him out in the sack.
And, since I love reggae, I gotta post the other pic she Tweeted with earlier today (w/ Ziggy Marley):

Yes, we already know that Shakira broke-up (more like dumped) longtime boyfriend Antonio de la Rua and so that means she’s on the prowl for some rebound action. At the NRJ Music Awards she won the awards for International Female Artist of the Year and International Song of the Year for the “Waka Waka” song.
We know that James Blunt was also in attendance. Let’s all hope that Shakira didn’t get swooned by him, seriously, we’re really hoping that.
Anybody know what Shakira on the Rebound tastes like?
Shakira, boyfriend Antonio de la Rua split after 11 years. They actually split back in August, but the news is just trickling out. Her ex is the son of a former president of Argentina, so if you have plans to pounce on Shakira, you better bring something big to the table (i.e. yachts, jets, a couple billion in the bank, etc).
Their public “breakup note,” signed by both Shakira and Antonio reads, “Our friendship and understanding of one another is unwavering and indestructible.”
Bastardly Translation:We’re temporarily bored of having sex with each other, so we’ll sleep around for a bit with other hot people & then get back together.
Whatever the future holds for these two, the most pressing issue is simply that unless Shakira bags someone over the next couple weeks, she’ll be dateless for the Grammys. Anybody want some Shakira-flavored rebound sex?
