Shakira’s hips do lie

Talking of repetitive radio stations (as I was) hearing that Shakira’s ‘Hips Don’t Lie,’ is not only the most played song ever in the USA, but also, ‘the latest proof of [New York’s] multicultural musical taste,’ reminds me of holidaying in Maine a few years ago.

America has a truly great pop culture, but to listen to its radio – endless Shakira – you’d think it sub-Eurovision; the hips do lie.

And that Shakira has claimed this crown so soon after Gwen Stefani, implies things have gone from bad to worse. I don’t know how Wyclef survives the embarrassment (‘Oh baby when you talk like that / You make a woman go mad’), but perhaps he needs the money to fund his other projects.
