Shakira’s now up to the third single (not including “Waka Waka”) from her latest album Sale el Sol. “Loca” was a big hit, but the follow-up title track “Sale el Sol” was a bit of a flop, so Shakira’s pulling out all the stops to make sure her next offering “Rabiosa” goes down well.
The majority of the song’s music video follows Shakira as she has a ball (literally) at an underground party. She’s dressed modestly enough, rocking a cute green dress paired with a dainty brunette wig. The rest of the video consists of seemingly unrelated scenes of a now bleach blonde Shaki twirling around a stripper pole in her bra & panties, bending over and opening her legs like a Thai hooker. I figured I must be missing something, like how the raunchy “She Wolf” video was supposed to symbolize a woman’s repressed sexuality fighting to escape, but after a couple of viewings I still couldn’t come to any deep conclusions or hidden metaphors behind Shakira’s slutastic pole dance.
She looks hot, but this type of skanky trash is better left to my girl Rihanna, or at least a 60-year-old Madonna trying to prove to the world that she’s still hip and sexy.
