Shakira's boyfriend thinks his 'She Wolf' is too sexy -- and we respectfully disagree

December 1, 2009 |  8:25 pm

Shakira(2) Couldn't she at least have worn a scarf?

That's what Shakira says her boyfriend -- who's not a performer -- asked when he saw her nude-leotard costume in the music video for "She Wolf."

Apparently boyfriend Antonio de la Rua, the son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rua, wishes his girlfriend were just a little less sexy. 

The Ministry has seen the "She Wolf" video, and rather than finding Shakira to be "too sexy," as her man thinks, or "too sellout," as some others believe, we think she's much too much "Jane Fonda Workout" -- with a heaping helping of "I taught myself to do the Robot and this is how it came out" for good measure.

But judging by reports of Shakira's efforts to help the poorest children in her native Colombia, nobody has to worry that she's all shake and bake with no smarts or heart.

This is a woman who in recent years has, for example, gotten five schools built back home.

And the nuns just love her.

She clearly won over at least one reporter for the UK Observer:

"She not only knows what she's talking about, but puts her money where her mouth is. It suddenly strikes me that she's Madonna gone right. She's not arrogant or demanding, she can sing, can actually dance, writes her own music, does good things for children without always having to pick them up and 'take them home with her.' "

When it comes to Sexy Shakira, the Ministry likes her best performing "Hips Don't Lie" with Wyclef Jean. That's why we present the video below, for your viewing pleasure.

It's a better tune than "She Wolf" too.
