Shakira, stop, please.
She is not going to win. She is crazy.
I doubt it. Her defence rests on the fact that she wasn’t “mainly” living in Spain. It’s a weak defence because she had just bought a home, was living with Pique and that she was pregnant at the time and later gave birth in Spain. Also, Pique lost his tax case a couple of years ago and had to pay millions. So I would be surprised if she wins.
Also, Spain’s tax prosecutors are no middle-of-the-range public servant lawyers. Just ask Ronaldo, Messi, Mecano.
I also hope she loses. I have no patience for the top 3 percent with their tax loopholes and tax havens, who have their own charities but hate paying into public funds that pay for schools, hospitals, pensions.
Should I click on that?
She said fuck subtlety this era! You better be sure she will talk about it all! I hope she burns a soccer ball next.
Not madre with her dramatic ass! We share our Big 3 zodiac signs so I just get her.
Didn’t she just give an interview in a major magazine publication?
Anyway, they recently blasted Shakira in the stadium when Pique was training.
Pay your taxes
I wish she would have taken ANY other direction for the first single after her official split, give us a BOP, a powerballad, an anthem, not this.
(or maybe it's just my personal taste).
The song is not great but it will do well in Latin America, she has a tax bill to eventually pay and all with very little creative input.
The song is better than I expected but this single cover... girl.
Oh this is her best song in years. I'm a bit emotional. She's in her Vulnicura era.
This is a bit......generous mija.
Why does it feel like it's under 2 mins long? I can't tell if it'll be a hit or not; there's not enough subtlety for me.
Imagine what Don’t Bother Shakira would be writing about all this!! I can picture the music video when she kicks the flaming soccer ball through the lookalike models chest leaving a cartoon perfect circle hole
the mija part from this comment has me rollin on the floor!
Girl, you need to try harder than this.
Is that a boar heart in the video?
Girls... I like the song!
The video... that's camp.
It is indeed a very camp expedition. I also don't really get the girls getting their panties in a knot over any of this when this is... classic Shakira? She has always delivered cheesy puns and in-your-face, not-so-subtle visual analogies, even during her imperial phase, and that's part of her charm. She has also always flirted with this type of sound for years. I can't help but wonder if people just aren't willing to give her a fair shot because of her thievery ways (which... fair!) or if this is yet another case of people not liking a song because they can't relate to its sound as they weren't raised in a place where these genres would blast out of neighborhood windows on cleaning Sundays! If you know you know.
