Shakira Scores Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

The woman attached to the most famous pair of hips in pop music has a new reason to smile: She just landed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Singing star Shakira waved to fans during a ceremony honoring her with the 2,454th Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Southern California on Tuesday. Born and raised in Barranquilla, Colombia, Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll released her debut album Magia in June 1991 when she was 13 years old, but it was the 2001 release of her first English-language single “Whenever, Wherever” that catapulted her to international infamy. Additional success followed with hits like the 2006 charttopper “Hips Don’t Lie” and “She Wolf.”
