Shakira checked in with fans on her Facebook, recounting a scary incident earlier today where she was attacked by a sea lion, posting a photo of a scratch she got on her hand as well as some of the sea lion who gave her the scare. The Colombian pop singer was in Cannes this weekend for the NRJ Music Awards. Check out the pictures here and read her message below:
This afternoon I happened to see some sea lions and seals. I thought to myself how cute they were so I decided to get a bit closer than all of the other tourists and went down to a rock trying to pet them doing a baby talk while taking pictures… Suddenly, one of them jumped out of the water so fast and impetuously that it got about one foot away from me, looked me in the eye, roared in fury and tried to bite me. Everyone there screamed, including me. I was paralyzed by fear and couldn’t move, I just kept eye contact with it while my brother “Super Tony” jumped over me and literally saved my life, taking me away from the beast. We both got our hands and legs scratched by the rocks while trying to protect ourselves. I believe what happened is that it confused the shiny reflection of the blackberry I was taking these pics with, with some sort of fish. It probably thought I was teasing it with food and then taking it away from it. Wow! It’s funny that only half an hour before I was complaining to my guide Andrew that I never get to see wild animals up close on adventurous trips. Oh well, I can’t say that anymore!! Now I’m off to see some penguins! I hope they are a bit more friendly!

Shakira spoke with Al Jazeera’s David Foster before her performance of the official World Cup song ‘Waka Waka’ at Johannesburg’s Soccer City stadium on Sunday before the 2010 final between Spain and the Netherlands. The Colombian pop singer talked about how she’s become a soccer fan, why she was selected instead of an African singer, and how the opportunity came about.
“My record label was putting together the album, the ‘Listen Up’ album for the World Cup and they asked me to write a song for the World Cup,” Shakira explained. “Since I had some time off at the beginning of the year I jumped on it, but I never expected it was going to be selected as the official World Cup song, so imagine my surprise and my excitement because I know what football represents, what it signifies to the world, at least what it does to me now. I know the power that it has to bring people together from all different cultures and religions. The power of football is enormous.”
