LOS ANGELES, CA - "And that's just one side of me," said the crossover Columbian crooner as she first shifted then swiveled her pelvis, left hand on her hip, microphone in her right. Then, she gave her head a sharp forward thrust as if to say, "Hmmpf!"
This sexy songstress proved herself to be a musical prodigy early on. Shakira quickly rose to the top of the Latin American music scene in the nineties, and when she did so, it was as much for her distinctive hip swiveling, gyrating dance style as for her music.
The blatant misappropriation of this latest dance step, currently the most viewed on EweTube, could help Shakira cross over into true superstardom. It's taken directly from Susan Boyle's introductory performance to the judges on Britain's Got Talent, where she proved before singing a note she's one West Lothian whose "hips don't lie," unlike some other pulsating pelvic plagiarists.
