Shakira has been around for some time, shaking her booty. From being a latinomusic phenomenon, she benefitted from the general focus on latinomusic trough the 90s. Along with a shift in trends towards focus on booty and butts, she became an international megastar. She was hot, still is, and she has that behind we like.
She has moved on to also being a TV personality, especially as one of the judges on the american version of The Voice.
