In 1995 she released Pies Descalzos, which brought her great fame in Latin America and Spain, and her 1998 album ¿Dónde Están los Ladrones? was a critical success. Since then she has gained many fans in semi-Hispanophone countries, and many non-Spanish-speaking countries, especially the United States. In 2001, aided by the extreme popularity of the music video for “Whenever, Wherever“, she broke through into the English-speaking world with the release of Laundry Service, which sold over 13 million copies worldwide.[5][6] Four years later, Shakira released two album projects called Fijación Oral Vol. 1 and Oral Fixation Vol. 2. Both reinforced her success, particularly with the best selling song of the 2000s, “Hips Don’t Lie“.[7]

She has won two Grammy Awards,[5] seven Latin Grammy Awards,[5] twelve Billboard Latin Music Awards[5] and has been Golden Globe-nominated.[5] She is also the highest-selling Colombian artist of all time, and the second most successful female Latin singer after Gloria Estefan, having sold over 60 million albums worldwide according to Sony Music.[8] Her U.S. album sales stand at 9.6 million.[9]

Additionally, she is the only artist from South America to reach the number-one spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, the Australian ARIA chart, and the UK Singles Chart.[10] Shakira is to be given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well.[11][12] In the fall of 2009, Shakira released her sixth album She Wolf worldwide.[13] Shakira was ranked the 76th artist of the 2000–10 artist of the decade by Billboard.[14]

Shakira’s “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)“, was chosen as the official song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, along with its Spanish language version, titled “Waka Waka (Esto es África)”.[15] The song has received generally positive critical reception, and has become a worldwide smash hit, selling more than 4 million copies worldwide, becoming the biggest selling World Cup song of all time.[16] On YouTube, the English version of the music video is the 3rd most watched video of all time with over 270 million views.[17] Her seventh studio album, the bilingual Sale el Sol, was released October 19, 2010.[18]

Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (born October 25, 1984), better known by her stage name Katy Perry, is an American pop musician. Born in Santa Barbara, California, and raised by Christian pastor parents; Perry grew up listening to only gospel music and sang in her local church as a child. After earning a GED during her freshman year of high school, she began to pursue a career in music. As Katy Hudson, she released a self-titled gospel album in 2001, which due to the closing of her record label, was deemed unsuccessful. She later recorded an album with production team The Matrix and completed the majority of a solo album from 2004–5; neither of which were released.

After signing with Capitol Music Group in 2007, her fourth record label in seven years, she adopted the stage name Katy Perry and released her first Internet single “Ur So Gay” that November, which garnered public attention; but failed to chart. She rose to fame with the release of her second single “I Kissed a Girl” in 2008, which went on to top international charts. Perry’s first mainstream studio album One of the Boys followed later that year and subsequently, became the thirty-third best selling album worldwide of 2008.[1] It was accredited platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America, while “I Kissed a Girl” and her second single “Hot n Cold” both received multi-platinum certifications. Her sophomore studio album Teenage Dream was released in August 2010 and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200.

Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American recording artist, dancer, singer-songwriter, and philanthropist. Referred to as the King of Pop, Jackson is recognized as the most successful entertainer of all time by Guinness World Records. His contribution to music, dance and fashion, along with a much-publicized personal life, made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades. The eighth child of the Jackson family, he debuted on the professional music scene along with his brothers as a member of The Jackson 5 in the mid-1960s, and began his solo career in 1971.

In the early 1980s, Jackson became a dominant figure in popular music. The music videos for his songs including “Beat It“, “Billie Jean” and “Thriller“, were credited with transforming the medium into an art form and a promotional tool, and the popularity of these videos helped to bring the relatively new television channel MTV to fame. Videos such as “Black or White” and “Scream” made him a staple on MTV in the 1990s. Through stage performances and music videos, Jackson popularized a number of dance techniques, such as the robot and the moonwalk. His distinctive musical sound and vocal style have influenced numerous hip hop, pop, contemporary R&B and rock artists.

Jackson’s 1982 album Thriller is the best-selling album of all time. His other records, including Off the Wall (1979), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991) and HIStory (1995), also rank among the world’s best-selling. Jackson is one of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. He was also inducted into the Dance Hall of Fame as the first (and currently only) dancer from the world of pop and rock ‘n’ roll. Some of his other achievements include multiple Guinness World Records; 13 Grammy Awards (as well as the Grammy Legend Award and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award); 26 American Music Awards (more than any other artist, including the “Artist of the Century”); 13 number-one singles in the United States in his solo career (more than any other male artist in the Hot 100 era); and the estimated sale of over 750 million records worldwide. Jackson won hundreds of awards, which have made him one of the most-awarded recording artist in the history of music. He was also a notable humanitarian and philanthropist, donating and raising hundreds of millions of dollars for beneficial causes and supporting more than 39 charities.

Aspects of Jackson’s personal life, including his changing appearance, personal relationships and behavior, have generated controversy. In 1993, he was accused of child sexual abuse, but the case was settled out of court and no formal charges were brought. In 2005, he was tried and acquitted of further sexual abuse allegations and several other charges after the jury ruled him not guilty on all counts. While preparing for his concert series This Is It, Jackson died on June 25, 2009, after suffering from cardiac arrest. Before his death, Jackson had reportedly been administered drugs such as propofol and lorazepam. The Los Angeles County Coroner declared his death a homicide, and his personal physician pleaded not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter. Jackson’s death triggered a global outpouring of grief, and as many as one billion people around the world reportedly watched his public memorial service on live television. In March 2010, Sony Music Entertainment signed a US$250 million deal with Jackson’s estate to retain distribution rights to his recordings until 2017, and to release seven posthumous albums over the decade following his death. His first posthumous album of new material, simply titled Michael, was released on December 14, 2010.

Kim Kardashian has always been coy about her alleged relationship with rapper, Kanye West.  Although Kim and Kanye have been spotted together quite often in the past few weeks, “recording music and shooting videos for Kim’s album,” they continue to play the “are they or aren’t they a couple game” played so well by so many celebrities–Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez for example, or Nicky Minaj and Drake.

Alas, that game might not be so easy to play anymore thanks to Kim’s little sister, Khloe.  According to Hollywood Life, Khloe Kardashian let the proverbial cat out of the bag on, of all places, the red carpet at The People’s Choice Wards last Wednesday.  When asked about working with Kanye on her upcoming album, Kim K. replied:  “I think I’ve just been having a lot of fun.”  Fair enough.  But, apparently, Kim’s answer wasn’t specific enough for Khloe who unexpectedly chimed in:  “That’s because they’re boning.”  Wow.  Talk about too much information.

Of course, Kim, pretending to be mortified, shot back, reminding the reporters:  “That came out of Khloe’s mouth, not mine!”   Right.

Kim Kardashian is, of course, a master at manipulating the media and holding the public’s attention by any means necessary.  Khloe Kardashian’s verbal faux pas may have been deliberate.  And it is interesting that Kim Kardashian neither admonished her little sister nor refuted her blurted statement.

So, what do you think?  Is Khloe right?  Are Kim K. and Kanye getting physical?  Or is this just another “are they or aren’t they” publicity stunt.
