It looks like 2011 is turning into quite a big year for Shakira. Outside of her new romance, the “Waka Waka” singer is getting honored as “Person of the Year” at this month’s Latin Grammys and getting her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The estrella was just announced this week and we think it’s more than well deserved. In her 16-year recording career, Shakira has sold millions of albums, topped the charts numerous times, and won countless music awards. Beyond that, she’s a global humanitarian who’s donated to dozens of worldwide charities.
So, earning a star on Hollywood Blvd. seems like a very natural progression. And, for the record, Shakira’s name is getting placed in a prime location. Her moniker will be right in front of the “W” hotel, on the legendary corner of Hollywood and Vine.
The unveiling ceremony will take place on November 8 and anticipation is building fast among the Shaki fan community. We expect there will be tons of “She Wolf” lovers, famous friends, and even a well-known soccer player in the crowd.
