These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Even some of her English-speaking fans prefer to think of her solely as an incredible Colombian artist, denying the existence of Laundry Service (citing the narmy lyrics resulting from bizarre forced-rhyme), and question the peroxide job in her foray into the English language market.
Freud Was Right - The video for "She Wolf" features her going into her closet, to enter some sort of... pink, slightly-fleshy looking tunnel-like room, which she then dances around in. Subtle.
Narm - "She-Wolf". While many critics gave high-scored reviews to the song, they still consider the howl goofy. And the lyrics are too weird for their own good.
Narm Charm: Oh, come on. That howl was so goddamn cute.
Yes, but given the dubious nature of some of the lyrics in "Whenever, Wherever," it's hardly surprising that she's stuck to a theme. Seriously?
"Lucky that my lips not only mumble They spill kisses like a fountain Lucky that my breasts are small and humble So you don't confuse them with mountains"
"Ojos Asi" and "Eyes Like Yours." Cool songs, but the lyrics are just strange.
Nightmare Fuel – Apparently her body movements & flexibility in the video for "She Wolf" is this for some people.
Those were almost as bad as those on the clip for "La Tortura", which not only feature the biggest Fan Disservice on her career (chest shouldn't move that way! Also, what with all those grease?), but also has a duet with Spanish singer Alejandro Sanz in his ugliest.
Sampled Up - "Hips Don't Lie" from Jerry Rivera's "Amores como el nuestro". They're different genres and markets, so most people not knowing the original may be due to that.
Said song is actually a remake of a Wyclef Jean song called "Dance Like This", which sampled "Amores como el nuestro".
Also, "Waka Waka" of African song "Zangelewa" ('Golden Sounds', in Fang language).
Shed The Family Name - Though she does only go by Shakira, some suggested that she completely remove the ties with her family name Mebarak because it is a homophone of Mubarak, the surname of a certain Egyptian Prime Minister then President.
