Shakira Quicky

Since Shakira will be shaking her groove thang (did we just say that??) at the Toyota Center tonight for the Houston stop of her Oral Fixation Tour, we felt it fitting to throw down a list of Shakira facts. For starters, did you know that her hit song 'Hips Don't Lie' is the most played song in the history of radio? Ever? It is. Here are some more Shakira tidbits:

Birth Name: Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll
Birthdate: February 2, 1977

Birthplace: Barranquilla, Colombia

Horoscope: Aquarius

Sony/Colombia signed her to a record deal at age 13.

Shakira doesn't eat candy, drink alcohol or coffee or smoke! (That might explain the bangin' body.)

Shakira's father is originally from Lebanon.

She has an IQ of 140!

Shakira is fluent in Portuguese, Italian, and English, in addition to Spanish and Arabic.

"My songs are the reflection of how I think and how I feel in that moment. But I'm conscious of the fact that artists have a responsibility before the masses and they have to take care with their words." - Shakira
