Shakira’s Hips Take Lebanon by Storm
Hips don't lie! Colombian pop star Shakira shook her hips on Thursday taking Lebanon by storm during a concert at Beirut’s new seafront attended by thousands of fans.
Streets in downtown Beirut were packed by fans hours before the concert, which started at 9:30 pm. Organizers estimated that 20,000 people attended the event.
At one point, crowds cheered as Shakira, who is of Lebanese origin, shook her famous hips at an Arabic soundtrack.
The Grammy award winner and songwriter fascinated fans for two hours by singing a series of her best known songs and finally the famous “Waka Waka” which was the official song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
"I love you very much Lebanon and I hope to see you dancing and singing with me. It's gonna be a party," said the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer upon her arrival to Beirut.
Shakira pushed talk show host Oprah out of tenth place on Twitter's list of most followed microbloggers during the week ending May 23.
The pop singer has been accruing hoards of fans on Twitter, sharing photos and posting a teaser for her latest music video "Rabiosa," in which she forgoes her usual bleached blonde locks in favor of a dark brown bob and a tight minidress.
