SHAKIRA DOLL WILL SHAKE UP BUSINESS FOR MATTEL

By LISA MARSH, PageSix.com

You'll soon be able to own Latin singing sensation Shakira - or at least a smaller plastic replica of the pop princess.

That'll look cool on the shelf next to my Michael Flatley action figure.

Nothing can top the My Dinner With André action figures (shown in Waiting for Guffman).

Exactly. But as was pointed out in the movie, you can make up your own conversations for them to have!

Wallace Shawn has always been one of my favorite action heros.

My dog got ahold of my Michael Flatley action figure and chewed the arms off. Oh well, it won't make any difference.

Well, I think Andre Gregory is much more of an action hero than Wallace Shawn - how can you compare "Princess Bride" with "Demolition Man"?

Matthew, Matthew...

Perhaps this will help (there's even a sexy photo):

Shakira has what it takes to be an enduring star

Jordan Levin, Miami Herald

At her AmericanAirlines Arena concert Monday night, Shakira showed she has everything she needs to be one of the decade's most memorable pop singers.

Oy, I just found out about Shakira myself. We saw a special on her on MTV whilst we were up in Canada. Apparently she is a huge megastar in Latin countries. She is Colombian, and has some Lebanese background. Anyway...she repeated several times in the interview that her stage movement was "sensual, NOT sexual". She said this pointedly, as though she had rehearsed it. Then, they would show a clip of her in performance, shaking her posterior with a pulsation and speed that would make Madonna envious. It was "interesting". Sensual, not sexual, I would say! :D

Um... she isn't a megastar only in Latin countries... she's been in the Top Ten in the US for about a year now...

Here's a link to a site where you can listen to her hits. In case you read my latest post about skating, the song Butyrskaya skated to, "Ojos Asi," is at that site. (I knew the song, but I had to do some research to find out what it's title was.)

But, trina, don't you watch TV? Shakira's been doing commercials too, including this Pepsi ad:

(There's a bug in Pepsi's page. Two windows will open when you click the above link. Close the second one to access the first window.)
