As the fanfare that accompanied its premiere dies down, talk of Shakira and Rihanna’s ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You’ duet is finding itself on the up-and-up along controversy’s row.
Indeed, shortly after the Roc Nation duo learned of their respective nominations at the 2014 Billboard Latin Music Awards, they were slammed with reports of “promoting lesbianism” for scenes found aboard their debut duet video.
With the visual listed as a “danger to children” in Shaki’s home of Colombia, a petition has been ignited to have the video banned…
“Our Shakira with her erotic video is promoting tobacco usage and has become the worst example for our youth,” Marco Fidel Ramirez, the family councilor, said. “Shakira’s new video is a shameless case for lesbianism and immorality. It is a danger to children.”
Do you agree with Ramirez or is he taking it too far?
