You’re goddamn right I am.

You’re goddamn right I am.

One time a boy I liked asked me, “Beyoncé or Shakira?” (He was always doing this - at first I thought it was cute because he would give me two animals to pick from, and who doesn’t enjoy an animal debate? But mostly he’d do it with musicians, often with hip-hop artists I knew nothing about. Much later I would realize this was a conversation substitute.) 

I said “Shakira,” because OBVIOUSLY, but he was like nahhh, it’s Beyoncé, like I could be WRONG about my opinion, and then he started to tell me why Beyoncé was better/hotter and I guess I must have liked him a lot because I started to be like, “Yeah, yeah I can see your points. Valid arguments.” 

For the record: Shakira, always Shakira. Shakira Shakira! I love B, BUT. Let’s be quite clear: who is the one who poured oil on herself in her kitchen, ran up to her rooftop, and danced?

If I possessed the technological skills to do such a thing I would make a GIF of Rihanna at 3:08 in this (weird, crazy, but pretty I guess) video for “Where Have You Been” and then put it next to a GIF of Shakira in “She Wolf” just to remind everyone that you can’t do dance moves like what you’re seeing at 3:08 unless you are Shakira.

I miss Shakira whenever (and wherever) she is not on my radio and my tv and my internet.

I wrote a very gushy piece about how much I love Shakira, and have loved her since the beginning of time, alpha and omega, for BuzzFeed Music. It was really fun to write! Please read it and watch all the videos in it!
