The Voice is trading one Latin blonde pop star for another Latin blonde pop star; and an R&B singer for another slimmer, slightly more attractive R&B singer. Colombian booty-shaker Shakira and Justin Bieber-worshipper Usher are replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green because you know, they have more important things to do in life.

Due to her latest album “Sale el Sol,” which has already netted her three Latin Grammy nominations, and her work through the Pies Descalzos Foundation, the hip-shaking Colombian musician and philanthropist Shakira has been named “Person of the Year” by the Organizers of the Latin Grammys as they gear up for the annual awards show in November.

Now that Spain and Netherlands have been revealed as the two teams competing in the finals for the World Cup, people have been going crazier than usual. We’re sure there are certain people who are already skipping out on class or work to go to their favorite bar and watch the games. We’re also sure everyone who is attempting to stay responsible and fulfill their duties are streaming the game online anyway! There’s an inexplicable rush that comes from the anxiety when one watches football (er… soccer). The Superbowl is for babies and there’s a lace of a different crazy injected into our adrenaline that makes the World Cup matter even more than the Olympics.

Ever since M.I.A. released her video for her shocking punk rock song, “Born Free,” music critics have been racking their brains for the correct interpretation of her depiction about the state-armed forces. It was gruesome, it was unpleasant but kind of awesome as well.
There’s one scene in particular that everyone remembers. (Note: If you have not watched the video yet, this is a spoiler alert.) We could all see that red headed boys were the victims in her storyline, but what we didn’t see coming was a commando shooting one of the young, innocent, and very frightened boys in the head.

Hey, if having President Obama questioning the legality of Arizona’s new ssshhh-this-isn’t-gonna-lead-to-racial-profiling-at-all state law (which requires Arizona police to determine if individuals are in the United States of America legally if there is any reason to suspect that they are not) doesn’t put stop to it, maybe sending down the hip-shaking pop singer who crooned “Underneath Your Clothes” and “She Wolf” will do the job. At this point, it probably couldn’t hurt.

The World Cup is almost here, and with it the official song. A new tune by pop star/hips not lying Shakira and South African band Freshlyground has been chosen as the official World Cup anthem; “Time for Africa” is to be released to radio stations around the globe next week and available for download April 26.
You can catch the live version of “Time for Africa” when Shakira and Cape Town’s Freshlyground will perform the song at the World Cup kickoff concert in Soweto on June 10, and at the tournament’s opening ceremony and before the July 11 final.

Columbian singer, Shakira, can do more than just belly dance for everyone out there. We like to think most musicians use their influence (and their dollars) for good things, and Shakira is proving that she can still send a message out to her fans by reminding them of the tragedy which happened in Haiti a few months back.
Not only is Haiti one of the impoverished countries in the world, but to have a heartbreaking natural disaster hit them has only weakened their ability to maintain a normal lifestyle – even in their constant dire needs.

To celebrate the 2010 World Cup that’s being held in Africa, the Black Eyed Peas, Shakira and Alicia Keys are set to headline a concert in Soweto on June 10th, just one night before soccer’s 30-day big event is scheduled to begin.

Everyone’s anticipation for the remake of Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie‘s “We Are The World” was boiling over the top by the time it premiered on television during the 2010 Olympics opening ceremony. With a new generation of “all-stars” lending their voices, we all wondered how it would turn out. The results: It raised a generous amount of money to go towards Haiti and is still #1 on iTunes, but the general reception hasn’t been as great. If you still haven’t checked out the new video, you can watch and listen to it here.
