Did we miss anyone?


  1. Ok, so i’m the shortest of my class, but i’m still taller than Shakira (also i’m 58 kg and she is 57), and i’m only 13. WOW !!!. Still, no offence she is the hottest girl alive, but wtf.

  2. OMG, I’m a big fan of Shakira. She’s so… honest. She’s beautiful, slim, talented, hearty and smart! She’s got amazing songs and also amazing figure. Thanks you exist, Shaki 🙂

  3. Shes so pretty I am “5,5.5” and I am 116 pounds I am surprised she would weigh more than me!Although I am at risk for an eating disorder but I don’t look skinny.


  5. There is probably a mistake relative to her Measurements :

    Her breasts are smaller : this is even a source of complex to her (check out the lyrics of whenever wherever or objection)

    and she’s definitely not 56 kg but rather 48.

    She’s slim

  6. Omg if that information is correct, she is absolutely beautiful. I love her “Hips Don’t Lie” song. She’s a stunner with an amazing voice.

    I’m 19 and I’m the same bra size (32B), the same height (5ft 2″) and the same shoe size! My weight is a little less though (105 pounds). She’s very fit for her age, wow.

    Really wish I could dance like her, hopefully I’ll learn. She’s really so beautiful, and the name Shakira is awesome.

    I can’t believe people have said mean things about her height. Silly judgmental people, everyone’s different. There’s nothing wrong with being 5ft 2″, that’s a nice height, especially for her body dimensions it’s perfect.


  7. Shakira is literally my favorite singer!!! I love her songs, and her personality!!! She is the same height and weight as me!!!! I am half Portuguese and half Lebanese.

  8. Shakira is tiny. My 10 year old cousin got a picture with her without her heels on and she was a head taller than her. Shakira had to get on tip toes for the pic.
