* BlindIdiotTranslation: May be {{lampshaded}} in "Underneath Your Clothes", Shakira's first attempt at an original English song, with the second line: "don't get me wrong, 'cause this might sound to you a bit odd". Sure, it refers to the idea of the song being about... whatever it's about... but also warns listeners that the English may not be of a high grammar quality. That line is the worst offender in the song, both misusing the idiom "don't get me wrong" and employing technically correct YodaSpeak for the apology.

* AllWomenLoveShoes: She is the poster girl for bare feet. Moreover, the song "Pies Descalzos, Sueños Blancos" pretty much outright states that women are/should be a race of barefooted people.

She is of Lebanese, Catalan, and Italian ancestry. Known for her belly dancing, her multiculturalism, and her Music/AlanisMorissette-like voice, Shakira is a she-wolf to be reckoned with.

* {{Irony}}:
** A few of Shakira's earlier songs have lyrics about how she doesn't understand (UsefulNotes/{{association|football}}) football, because of the tradition of the sport in Colombia, even though she has performed anthems for 3 FIFA World Cups and is married to a footballer. She now does know about football.
** Her {{Ink Suit|Actor}} Character in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' is [[TheOneWhoWearsShoes the only character in that movie to wear shoes]]. Compared to Shakira herself famously being among the relatively small population of humans that DoesNotLikeShoes. Of course, this could be a deliberate contrast to represent the juxtaposition but in a different society.

* AcceptableFeminineGoalsAndTraits: "Pies Descalzos" ("Bare Feet"), which seems to be sung to a teenage girl telling her the expectations of being a woman by equating one with all women of history; however, it may be presented as satire by loading all of these expectations onto teenage girls at their quinceañeras. It starts with mentioning the original sin, [[lablenote:more discussion]]though going on to say that women fought dinosaurs, then gets back to criticizing the girl for saying she wants her own happiness when she (or, historically, women) had never cared a bit about herself. The chorus says she comes from an ancient race of bare feet and white (perhaps 'pure' or innocent) dreams, and (though hard to understand even in Spanish) that she always assumes iron left in heat weakens, likely a metaphor for crumbling under pressure, and potentially saying not to believe that (about herself).[[/labelnote]] Then a verse describes how she (the addressee)/women built lives that were perfectly calculated, but says that she (the singer) is a complete mess by not knowing timings and names and movements, before listing a lot of said "acceptable" female actions dictated by society: politeness, saying and feeling only certain things, working hard, being pure in religion, to not speak at the dinner table, to ''[[{{Irony}} always wear shoes]]'', to dress well, to get married before 30 and, above all, have good champagne at your quinces and to perform the special waltz well. It's almost certainly satire, likely to say that it's wrong to put all this on a 15-year-old girl, and on women in general, especially since it heavily invokes tradition but also exaggeratedly ancient tradition, as well as addressing it somewhat mockingly, it may also be potentially calling on people to care about real social issues rather than making traditional gender roles a bigger deal. Or it may be genuinely warning poor teenage girls what they've unassumingly gotten themselves into, addressing the issue with sarcasm. It is probably part of the modern discourse on the role of the quinceañera and, notably, Colombia is one Latin country where it's become more common for girls to not have a quinceañera party.
