well if she really wants to make love, not war...

shakira.gifI know you were waiting with baited breath for this.

Shakira is anti-war.

You may now all put down your "Free Iraq" signs and shake your ass for peace.

I'm just all aflutter waiting to hear Britney and Avril's stance on the issue.

UPDATE:
Stop being so freaking serious. Can't you just look at this woman and go rub your crotch against the couch instead of making every single post I write into a catfight?

Look at that body! Jesus, people. Humor. It's what's for dinner.

These celebs make fisking too easy.

"Not always do the governments represent their people," she added. "Not always do the governments make the right decisions, because the governments are controlled by just a few, and those few do not always represent faithfully the ideals of the people."

Er, Saddam?

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace."

That's right...all you need is love, baby

The important thing is to not have enemies.

Or underwear, apparently.

BTW, what is a Shakira?

Damn it. She is so hot too. Where are all the sensible celebrities or is that just an oxymoron?

I never understand the right's reaction to celebs making their positions known. If you're famous, and a reporter asks you how you feel about the war - what's wrong with asking? Instead we get this whole litany about how much do they really know, and yadayada. Of course, it's only if they don't toe the right wing line - because Bo Derek and Charlton Heston are frigging geniuses...

Oliver,

Because the media actually treats what they say seriously. Given the apparent intellectual capacity of the celebrities involved, it's especially galling.

Boy, I sure wish she would strip down naked and run crazily into the streets for a photo shoot.

I agree!! Who is Shakira? He should be running our country! He is so smart and has so much knowledge! The UN could learn something if they would just listen to celebrities for a change!

I think the 'Right' reacting to the celebs manipulating the media/making their position known is based on the fact that people are more willing to listen to Sharon Crow then read the news or apply some critical thinking. Its sad that the'Left' is so willing to listen to them. Seriously, do you think this shakira knows more than you? That is what people think and thats what celebs want you to think.
It takes out the element of problem solving; which lends more credibility to the word 'propaganda.' Which is great for liberals, that way it saves time. People get brainwashed quicker getting news from MTV and Entertainment Tonite.

Man, all those left wing bloggers quoting Shakira and Sheryl Crow...

Nevermind.

Get a grip, people.

The left does not have ownership of listening to celebrities. Nor are left celebrities the only ones who speak out.

This post wasn't about right/left, actually.

It was about Shakira shaking her ass.

I think we all can get into a little of that. Shakira - the force bringing us together!

Doesn't someone want to photoshop her ass to say "This Ass is Making a Difference!"

Anyone? Kevin?

Shakira is anti-war.

Pant, pant, pant. So am I, as long as she's in the room.

Maybe when the liberal wing dumps the "Bush is stupid but Barbara Streisand has something to say" dichotomy, Oliver's comment will make more sense ...

Doesn't matter to me either way.
I'm anti-war, but pro-do-what-needs-doing.
And does ANYBODY really give a shnit what BS has to say, regardless of whether Bush was a C student?

Shakira is for peace? I want a piece, too! Can I have a piece, Shakira? Please?

Damn it. She is so hot too. Where are all the sensible celebrities or is that just an oxymoron?

This is all the woman anyone could ever need. Brains, sense, beauty and a big gun. What a combo!

I think I'll take Shakira over Ann. I like my women with a little less venom.

I get the ridiculousness of people ascribing weight to celebrities' opinions just 'cause they're celebrities.

HOWEVER, politics aside, I think the media do Shakira a disservice by comparing her to Britney and/or Avril. Shakira's been singing, playing, and composing her own music since she was fourteen or so. So, y'know, actual talent there, not just a hot bod and a good marketing rep.

Also, her boobs are real.

We now return to your regularly scheduled warblog.

The one topic that really gets people mad is the defence of celebrities and people that bash celebrities. Its funny how people get so offended on this issue.

I'm not offended, Glen, nor am I defending anyone. I'm just pointing out what I believe to be a common misperception -- that Shakira is dumb/talentless/a Britney clone, etc. It's an easy assumption to make based on media spin; I just don't think it's true.

I thought the "real boobs" comment would highlight the self-aware quality of my post. Guess not. ;-)

I guess Mattel was the first to clone this Barbie.

wayne, perfect photo!

ann coulter is the gorgeous blonde with something worth hearing.

If she'd drop her britches, then I might just reconsider my stance for all of three seconds.

But the image would stay on my hard drive.

Here You Go, Trace.

I liked Shakira before Shakira was cool! Ok, it was mainly my gut reaction to Ricky Martin's popularity and a desire to listen to the girl who WAS kinda like a Latina Alanis Morrisette (trevalyan: You have NO taste. Rohan: Sit on it.). But what the hell.

If SHE got naked for peace (along with a few other hot ladies), I might reconsider this war. Or would we just do our damnedest to ratchet it up to "Naked Quasi- Lesbian Jello Wrestling for Peace?" Use the American media for GOOD, not EVIL! :)

Robin, the only people who give a crap what Streisand says are right-wing reactionairies. She gives money to the DNC, so she's allowed to send faxes to Daschle. She ain't exactly making policy.

Well, Avril's are real too. Or she was seriously ripped off, one of the two.

As for Shakira, well, I can't figure out what she's singing about most of the time, but if she's doing the asking I'll gladly provide an ANSWER.

(See how much nicer my posts are when my vision hasn't been seared by Courtney or Leona?)

that's a lie. she causes a war IN MY PANTS.

Heh, almost spit out my Coke when I read your reply.

POPULARITY RULE #1
Popularity is BOUGHT. Musicians BUY their way into the hearts and minds of the public

"She gives money to the DNC, so she's allowed to send faxes to Daschle. She ain't exactly making policy."

Umm, Oliver, wouldn't you and plenty of others be calling that "buying influence" if it was a right-winger doing it? Oh, never mind, there I go paying attention to the man behind the curtain again.

I'm with Michele: this girl, whoever she is, has an ass we all should be able to get behind. Or... something like that. ;)

Just to prove there's a Frank Zappa quote for every situation:

"Roll it over and grease it down,
I'll drive you through the heart of town"

Shakira has started a movement (a twitchy one at that) that all Americans should get behind and support (with both hands).

When she does that belly-dancer shaking thing I find myself engrossed in her political stance.

I have worked with many performers in my life. Some actors but mostly bands and singers. They are great people , talented and warm but for the great majority they don't have a clue about how things work in the real world. That the media should give them the air time that they do just shows how bad the media is.
That said. Shakira is one fine looking lady.

And no one...I mean no one, can shake ass like Shakira. She is like an ass-shaking goddess. "Shake Your Ass for Peace!" I'm liking the slogan.

How come it's ugly old hippies doing the "go naked for peace" thing and not Shakira? Life is so unfair.

I have a smoking gun for her.

I know, I know, I'll grow up someday.

ah, I love the smell of shakira in the morning

Why all the critical comment on Shakira. I believe what she is doing is good, because her country suffered from war for over 40 years and United States have not experience war in thier hometime for a long time. So let her speak her mind for she knows alot more than all those who think she is just some airhead celeberty.

I just wanted to say if there are any hot girls looking for a cowboy holla back, and Shakira is the bomb, baby she gots it going on, , and if you look like here holla at your boy
