NEW ORLEANS - Colombian singer-dancer Shakira recently performed at The Voodoo Arena in the city known as The Big Easy.
After her three encores she sat backstage and talked with Carolina Chipotle of Bedroom Pillow Talk.
The 36-year-old South American songstress whose hips have been clocked at 124 miles per hour was asked about the rumor regarding noted soccer player Javier Hernández Balcàzar, better known as Chicharito.
Shakira responded by saying that Chicharito is quite the ladies man having dated a bevy of beauties including Kate Upton, Brooklyn Decker, Scarlett Johansson, Cheryl Cole, and of course herself.
The Left Coast rumor mills discovered that the 25-year-old soccer sensation who plays for Man U (Manchester United) had asked Shakira to marry him four years ago.
The "Hips Don't Lie" singer blushed and said that it was true. She said that the only two people she told were her close friends Eva Longoria and Salma Hayek who both promised to keep her secret.
SIDENOTE: Shakira said that at the time she was 32, and Chicharito was only 21, so she said that she did not want people referring to her as a cougar and to him as a boy toy so she did not accept his proposal of marriage.
