Warning to Kate Upton: Shakira is seeing your Cat Daddy dance and raising you the following music video for "Addicted to You."

The pint-sized artist has come out with the video for her latest single and, as always, it's far from unsexy. Watch now, as Shakira - with a shorter haircut than usual - shakes her hips and dances with that belly:

“Me besaste esa noche/Cual si fuera el último día de tu boca/Cada que yo me acuerdo/Yo siento en mi pecho el peso de una roca,” Shakira sings in the song, lyrics that translate to:

“You kissed me that night/As if it were the last day of your mouth/Everytime I recall/In my chest I feel the weight of a rock.”

Shakira and the Obama Administration have announced that she will be a member of the President's Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics.

Seriously. The White House said in a statement:

“I am grateful that these impressive individuals have chosen to dedicate their talents to serving the American people at this important time for our country ... I look forward to working with them in the months and years ahead.”

More than a wildly successful singer and celebrity news staple (Shakira and Gerard Pique have reportedly called things off), her list of accomplishments include:

  • Founding the Barefoot Foundation in 1995, which operates schools & educational projects for over 6,000 children in Colombia, South Africa, and Haiti.
  • Collaborating with the World Bank and the Barefoot Foundation to craft initiatives to distribute Latin American educational and developmental programs. 
  • Becoming a founding member of Latin America in Solidarity Action, a coalition of artists and business leaders seeking to promote early childhood policies.
  • Serving as Honorary Chair of Global Campaign for Education Global Action Week.
  • Serving as U.N. Goodwill Ambassador for the Children's Emergency Fund

Shakira has reportedly dumped her footballer boyfriend, FC Barcelona star Gerard Pique, after he could not keep it in his pants. While dating Shakira. Amazing.

During his girlfriend's absences from Spain, Pique reportedly cheated on her with a younger woman. She somehow found out about this and they broke it off.

She and Gerard Pique have been dating for six months and quickly became "the most obnoxious couple in football," according to Spanish celeb gossip sites.

They were constantly seen kissing and cuddling and were attached at the hip all summer. But evidently things went south, and she wasn't messing around.

Unlike most WAGs, Shakira doesn't need a soccer star for attention. She's the more famous half of that couple, not to mention older (34 to Gerard's 24).

Being cheated on with a younger woman couldn't have been fun to learn about, but at least the Colombian singer stood up for herself and dumped Pique.

We have some interns who are staff members, S. Just saying.

While Eminem's "A Kiss" is sure to get people talking, Shakira's "Rabiosa" will leave tongues wagging. A great many of them, we're guessing.

Shakira is known for her sexy hip-shaking, but she really ups the ante with this effort, channeling her inner pole-dancer and gyrating away!

The 34-year-old Colombian singer smolders as a blonde and dons a new look - a brunette bob - in the new video, which features Pitbull.

"Rabiosa" is the third single from her album, Sale El Sol. Watch/drool below:

Shakira and Antonio de la Rua have split up after 11 years together.

It actually happened months ago, but the notoriously private star did not go public with the news until confirming it on her blog this week.

"In August 2010, we made a mutual decision to take time apart from our romantic relationship," she writes. "We have continued to work together hand in hand, have remained close and have kept the details absolutely private until now."

However, Shakira, who called her romance with the investment banker "the most wonderful years of our lives" hinted that they could reconcile in the future.

"We view this separation as temporary, a time of individual growth as we continue to be partners in our business and professional lives," she wrote.

Shakira and Ke$ha are so awesome, they only need one name each.

If the former showed us anything at the MTV Europe Music Awards, it's that her hips do not lie. Nor do any other body parts this Colombian goddess possesses.

Goodness. As for Ke$ha, well, this is what Ke$ha does. She may not be able to carry a tune, but looking the part of a rock star is half the battle. Or two-thirds.

The She Wolf is on the prowl, and she's set her sights on Arizona.

In response to that state's incomprehensible new immigration law - which allows the police to ask for the identification of anyone suspected of being an illegal alien - Shakira is going on the attack.

She's headed to to Arizona today to get involved in the issue, telling Ryan Seacrest on the radio this morning:

"As a Latina, I'm very concerned how this law can impact working Hispanic families. I think that being detained in the street just because of the color of your skin is just wrong, and it's a violation of human and civil rights."

From the American Idol stage to the rights-violating streets of Arizona, Shakira is everywhere this week!

The Colombian-born singer, who is as charitable as celebrities get, will hold a press conference with Phoenix mayor Phil Gordon this week.

Like her truth-telling hips, we hope Shakira gives it to the lawmakers straight. After all, Arizona has actually made it legal for cops to make like Nazis and order: Show me your papers!

"They're really willing to enforce the law even though they know it's going crush the dreams of so many immigrants who would like to have a shot at the American dream like so many minorities have in the past in this country," Shakira said, continuing:

"We all know that America has been forged by the dreams of those people and by their passion and by their contribution to the economy by working really hard, and that's what Latinos do in this country, is work tirelessly.

"I wasn't born in this country, and I know what a great country this is. It depends greatly on creating union, not division, and I think this law will create chaos and create division instead of progress and union, and I don't think it's fair."

We'd love to see anyone argue with that.

A steamy appearance by tennis champion Rafael Nadal in a new music video by Shakira has sparked rumors that the hotties may be more than just friends.

It looks like that's all we're talking about, though: rumors.

Shakira Rocks

Last week, the pair, who heat up the video for her song "Gypsy," premiering in April, was spotted sharing a cozy meal at the W Hotel in Barcelona, Spain.

"They were giggling. They're very flirty," a source says of the music video shoot.

"They had a lot of chemistry while they were filming, and after as well."

A screen capture of Shakira and Rafael Nadal in her video.

In the "Gypsy" video, the 33-year-old Colombian singer and the 23-year-old Spanish athlete roll around, hold hands, embraces, and look smoldering.

But don't get any ideas.

Shakira is quasi-engaged to Antonio de la Rua, the son of former Argentine president Fernando de la Rúa. While she is reluctant to wed, they have been together nine years and, she says, have been totally monogamous. Nine years!

Nadal, meanwhile, is dating his high school sweetheart, Maria Francisca Perello, and his rep denied a romantic relationship between the "good friends."

Friends may be all they are, but Shakira has still seen Rafael Nadal shirtless up close and in the flesh. For that she is likely the envy of many ladies.

It's a big day for superstitious TV fans.

Despite the efforts of the morons at PETA, Punxsutawney Phil will prognosticate on the winter later this morning; while Lost will premiere its sixth and final season.

But it's also a big day for one of the most underrated singers on the planet: Shakira turns 33!

Because her hips don't lie, we must also be honest with readers when it comes to this artist. She's ridiculously talented. Shakira has won a pair of Grammy Awards, eight Latin Grammys and even received a Golden Globe nomination.

Moreover, Shakira started the Pies Descalzos Foundation, which subsidizes education and builds schools in the star's home country of Colombia.

For her humanitarian efforts and a dancing style that makes monks drool, we encourage readers to send in their birthday wishes to Shakira today...
