Shakira and Gerard Pique are throwing a World Baby Shower

Shakira will soon be giving birth to her second child – another son! – with boyfriend Gerard Pique, and they’re using their expanding family for good. She’s once again joining up with UNICEF, this time to launch the World Baby Shower that will benefit underprivileged children around the world.

Here’s the official press release:

Fans can visit the special website and buy one of the ten ‘Inspired Gifts’ that directly contribute to UNICEF. Some of the gifts are midwifery kits with medical equipment, vaccines, blankets, baby scales, soccer balls and storybooks.

The Pique Mebarak family’s first baby shower resulted in the application of over 80,000 vaccines against polio, 4 tons of therapeutic food donated, around 1,000 anti-malaria bed nets purchased and 200,000 oral rehydration salts sachets distributed.

Shakira wrote a post about it on her Facebook, saying that “now that we are about to be parents for the second time, we want to take it one step further: by making baby showers with a philanthropic bent accessible to everyone. Thanks to social media, celebrities are not the only ones who are able to make a real change. Now you can contribute so that baby showers that give to other children become a new global trend.”

Well, that’s pretty great – not only have we not heard much from Shakira since her pregnancy announcement, meaning she’s actually living her life and not trying to suck up as much press as possible. Also, she’s actually doing something useful, that benefits people who need it. Can’t argue with that. Plus, look how cute her little family is!

Shakira is pregnant with her second child

I can’t believe it’s already been over 18 months since Shakira got her shar pei on and gave birth to her first child, but indeed it has! She had her son in January 2013, and now she’s ready to give him a sibling because she’s pregnant again! She shared the news in an interview with Cosmopolitan en Espanol, but later confirmed the news via her Facebook page:

Congrats to Shakira and her not at all territorial boyfriend, Gerard Pique!

Shakira Was Just “Being Humorous” About Calling Her Boyfriend “Territorial”

Shakira

Shakira is clarifying some statements she made about her boyfriend. Remember when she said, “He’s very territorial, and since he no longer lets me do videos with men, well, I have to do them with women”? And everyone collectively went, “Uh, that’s a little much”?

Well now she’s saying she was basically just joshing.

Here’s what she posted on Facebook:

Hey guys – I recently said in some interviews that my man could be territorial. For the record, I was being humorous and now I see that some press took it very literally! The reality is that we have a beautiful relationship of mutual trust, and jealousy has never been an issue on either side. Next time I promise, I’ll be more careful when attempting to use my sense of humor, as clearly it can be easily misinterpreted!

Uh huh.

I don’t get what part of her original comments were meant to be a joke. How is calling your boyfriend “territorial” funny? What’s the punchline there?

Oh Shakira, Shakira.

Shakira’s boyfriend doesn’t let her do videos with men

LOL to all this, but Shakira has said that her boyfriend, footballer Gerard Piqué, won’t let her have any men in any of her videos. You know, because he makes those kind of decisions and not her record label. Apparently Gerard has a really serious jealousy problem, which isn’t at all concerning, and she has to pass everything by him before she does it. Cool, sounds healthy and totally awesome!

From Billboard:

“He’s very territorial, and since he no longer lets me do videos with men, well, I have to do them with women,” she says with a laugh. “It’s more than implied in our relationship that I can’t do videos like I used to. It’s out of the question – which I like, by the way. I like that he protects his turf and he values me, in a way that the only person that he would ever let graze my thigh would be Rihanna.”

LOL, I love that she had to add that she likes being controlled by this dude. You know, because she has a choice otherwise! Then again, I guess that explains this bullshit once and for all:

And I’m sure Gerard relented in letting her do this and wasn’t at all turned on by it. Gag me with all this bullshit.

Rihanna and Shakira Are Humping Walls in the ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You’ Video

It was recently announced that Shakira and Rihanna had formed an unlikely duo for Shakira’s new single, ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You’, a terrible rock-raggae-pop track (the reggae bit is apparently why Shakira thought of Rihanna) whose video doesn’t look to be much better, if the mini preview that’s been released is anything to go by.

The video is sure to include the following:

  • some light lesbo action (to keep male visitors enthralled, I suppose)

rihanna shakira

  • some wall-humping

And God knows what else, really. The song sucks, so the video won’t really be any better – even Rihanna’s twerking looks phoned in. It’ll probably do okay in the charts (definitely not a #1) by virtue of the artists performing it, but I think it’s a bit of a let down, myself.

Have a look:

Listen: Shakira and Rihanna’s ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You’

Worlds have collided, because Shakira and Rihanna have teamed up for a duet on a song with the dumbest title I’ve ever heard of: ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You’. Yeah, yeah, I get it. It’s super clever… or super corny. The song itself isn’t much to call home for and the production seems a little cheap, to be honest. That being said, since it’s these two, it’ll probably do really well on the charts.

Give the song a listen below:

I dunno, it’s a bit of a nothing song, don’t you think?

Uh, So… Shakira’s “Hooked” On Breastfeeding, Will Do It ‘Til Her Kid’s In College

shakira

Shakira‘s super zany and quirky and says shit that either a) makes no sense b) is totally inappropriate, which is why we love her. (We do love her, right?) Her latest foray into the cringeworthy is an interview she did with USA Today, in which she claims that she never wants to stop breastfeeding and has become “addicted” to the practice. Yikes.

“I’m not back all the way to my old self, but I look decent now, I think,” says the singer and judge on The Voice. “What has helped me a lot was breastfeeding, and I’m so hooked, I’m telling you, I think I’m going to keep breastfeeding this baby until he goes to college because I can’t stop, ” joked Shakira.

LOL. Obviously lots of moms feel this way, and breastfeeding is beneficial for your baby, as well, so no hating there. I just think it’s hilarious when Shakira jokes about shit like breastfeeding her kid until he’s in college because that visual is just… disturbing. Also, this comes after she compared herself to a Shar Pei after giving birth. Bless her heart.
