Shakira Before The VMAs

Shakira looking sexy

joined MTV News’ John Norris briefly before last night’s Video Music Awards in New York City. Read on for a brief transcript.

John: We have got the red carpet covered here at Rockefeller Center. I’m John Norris in the middle of it all and joined by without a doubt one of the most beautiful people in the house tonight. Shakira, how you doing

Shakira: I’m good.

John: Welcome to the V.M.A.’S.

Shakira: Thank you so much.

John: First of all, congratulations. Seven nominations. Obviously you were everywhere this year. Were you surprised at seven nominations?

Shakira: Of course. I can’t recover from the idea of seven nominations. It’s amazing. I mean, I cannot believe it. I cannot believe it. I cannot believe that a simple girl like me from Colombia is here among the greatest artists in the pop world and participating on the stage with someone like Wyclef. It’s all very exciting.

John: Now, of course, you and Wyclef were kind of a Pan-Caribbean thing, Colombia. Tonight I understand there will be a little bit of Bollywood in the performance. Is that right?

Shakira: Don’t give it away.

John: I don’t want to say too much, but something different, right?

Shakira: This song represents what I call the multicultural world that we live in. I think that music and art are demonstrating that we can come together culturally and that this is the moment where real integration. There are so many sounds, like the Caribbean, like you just said, from Haiti, from Colombia. This represents that. So today we thought that it would be a cool idea to sort of bring other flavors, like the classical Indian dance and the Bollywood concept, which is pretty exciting.

John: I am so looking forward to it. Have a great performance and a great night and best of luck with everything tonight.

Shakira: Thank you so much. It’s a pleasure to be here.

    VMA’s SUCKED ASS THIS YEAR! JACK BLACK-worse host in history! Only performances I like tonite were: Christina Aguilera, yea admit she was good, homoboy Justin Timberlake was good too, really like he new song wit T.I., Busta Rhymes & Missy E. was good wit they homage to Hype Williams, I like Panic of the Disco too and lets see who else was good? Oh Shaki and Wyclef were good. Beyonce was copying Janet Jackson dance moves from “Rhythm Nation” video tonite during she performance, so she get thumbs down for that. Sara Silverman is funny and should host next year!

    I agree with you on almost everything here. This year’s VMAs were ehh. not so good. The biggest disappointment was Jack Black. I thought he was going to be funnier since he is hilarious in movies. All that hype for nothing B0o0oo0!. Anyway, Yes OF COURSE! CHRISTINA AGUILERA was phenomenal. I am at the moment still confused as to why she didn’t get any awards. Panic! At The Disco, were great. & Beyonce was good overall, she danced her ass off. Sarah Silverman was funny!! haha you’re the third person that wants her to host next year. I hope she does, since she is in fact a comedian.
