NYC Mayor Throws Support to Shakira, Honest Hips

by at . Comments

This is unusual: a politician is supporting the truth.


Perhaps New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is trying to set a new trend in Washington, as he's throw his MTV Video Music Award support behind Shakira.

Bloomberg, who uses his iPod mostly for studying Spanish, made a powerful endorsement on Tuesday when he backed the Colombian pop star in the race for Video of the Year.

Even though Christina Aguilera, another finalist for the award, hails from Staten Island - and sings a jazzy, catchy tune in "Ain't No Other Man" - the mayor was simply mesmerized by Shakira's hips.

Yeah. He may not be alone in that stance.

In a taped spot that aired on MTV's "Total Request Live" yesterday, Bloomberg defended his choice by noting the truth in the title of Shakira's smash single "Hips Don't Lie:"

"I think I'm going to have to go with Shakira - those hips don't lie," Bloomberg said.

More profound words have rarely been spoken.

While the mayor did not offer other views, it's safe to assume he backs Lindsay Lohan for Most Annoying and would belt out a loud "NO!" when asked if Suri Cruise were, indeed, real.
