Rihanna & Shakira Slammed For “Promoting Lesbianism” With New Video Days After Scoring Billboard Latin Music Award Nominations

Published: Friday 7th Feb 2014 by Rashad

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…

Via LatinTimes:

“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?

    Taking it too far.

  2. Rihyeezy February 7, 2014

    Well I mean they was doing a lot in the video lol

  3. Suicide Blonde February 7, 2014

    Didn’t Madonna break this tabu 100 years ago, are we living in Russia?

  4. La Perra February 7, 2014

    Rihanna is surrounded by controversy… Nothing new, just for Shakira…

  5. Lovebird February 7, 2014

    I really wish they kissed erotically in the video; that would have been so hot.

    It has to be every girls/guys dream to lock lips with Rihanna, just has to be. She’s a goddess.

  6. Lovebird February 7, 2014

    Rihanna is like my Colton Haynes; I would gladly bath in their urine if it means one night with either of them.

    They literally blow my mind.

  7. The truth hurts February 7, 2014

    I think Columbia has worse things to worry about like high crime-rates and a third of its population living below the national poverty line (which is lower than that of developed countries). Holding onto out-dated ideals and prejudices only further stagnates progress. It’s the 21st century not the 16th

  8. UGH February 7, 2014

    lovebird you’re such a disgusting no class having desperate b****. like rihanna

  9. tits mcgee February 7, 2014

    He is an idiot! If you are so worried about the children then you monitor what they watch. Why is any expression of love a problem? This is the same type of person that had no issue with children watching violence. Also, ‘tobacco use’is a smoke screen(pun intended) for his real issue..Homosexuals. #SoObvious

  10. Suicide Blonde February 7, 2014

    Colton’s ass is mine.

  11. Lovebird February 7, 2014


    I fight dirty just so you know.

  12. tits mcgee February 7, 2014

    If he is so worried about ‘the children’ burn down the coca fields in Columbia so that cocaine isn’t sold the world over to children. Worried about a damn video. #ICan’t

  13. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT February 7, 2014

    Ok first of all @lovebird you are one thirsty ass ho

    Now on topic: if your so worried about this videos content the only thing u can do is moniter what your kids are watching. Why are they complaining the video was hot!

  14. Jesse Rivera February 7, 2014

    What a jackass. I’m sure there are bigger problems they need to fix. He needs to take several seats.

  15. ashley February 7, 2014

    Sam,u need to delete that comment that has rihanna’s battered face. It’s not cute.

  16. Rosie February 7, 2014

    It’s 2014. He needs to take several seats.

    However, it is obvious that they’re attention whoring for their lives in this video. Shakira better thank those Latin American gays and lonely Reddit virgins for those YouTube views.

  17. RICHIE_RICH February 7, 2014

    Oh……so you’re roll around in someone’s urine . YUCK , some people don’t have any morals. Then you have the audacity to call Beyoncé a w****. The irony of it all.

  18. Rihboy February 7, 2014

    its not normal for Shakira…Rih been did that in te amo….and has plenty les pics on instagram. Shakira album about to drop so this s*** talking has just begun. This wasnt even post worthy.

  19. EMPRESS WHITNEY February 7, 2014

    Well, how earth can somebody “wrongfully” promote something if it already exists exactly?

    I still cannot believe that an individuals ‘personal- sexual preferences’ are still taboo.

    The irony is that Madonna is one the best-selling artists in Colombia and ‘Justify My Love’ is one of the best-selling singles of all-time in that country. Need I say anymore?

    Are we actually living in 2014 or 1865? Society just continues to regress…


  20. HOWYOULIKEIT February 7, 2014

    Shakira has always been a good girl. Rihanna brought her into that

  21. Avi February 7, 2014

    Leave it to Rihanna to promote depravity. It’s the only way a no talent like her can be famous.

    Just ban the song and video.

  22. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) February 7, 2014

    @LOVESH*T aren’t you the main one on a Beyonce post slamming her for the songs she sings about HER HUSBAND! Yet you wish this bisexual tramp kissed Shakira?? I wish you left like you promised lol. You’re a true idiot #WhyAreYouStillHereTho?

  23. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) February 7, 2014

    The songs sh*t anyway so who cares. No ones paying attention to these two desperate ran through h*** anyway…

  24. mc!! February 7, 2014

    Ummn Sam ain’t you gay?

  25. Rihboy February 7, 2014

    But yonce did the same lesbo s*** tho…and this video is suttle compared to all 17 of beys. So hive please be seated next to. your thoughts. Hive should be the last people saying anything about this video. Moreover just because she is singing about her husband doesnt execuse the filth she is portraying in her lyrics and videos. Its just as bad. Partition was a porno and yonce was as lesbo as it could get. So shut thee absolute f*** up. Yall coons do three nuch for someone who only cares about you guys when your purchasing another ticket her tired show. Validation needing b****.

  26. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) February 7, 2014


    Do you think people really read your novels though?? You’re on the same level as @Lovesh*t, dumb as hell..

  27. Rihboy February 7, 2014

  31. Me Damnit!! February 7, 2014

    but she on the hives lips in every thread tho. Sit all caps¡

  32. Bey Fan February 7, 2014

    Chile….. women showing each other affection is not even taboo. Women can admire other women and not want them sexual.

    And even if they had kissed… who the hell cares. Have these people seen the chit that comes on tv??? Have they heard the way kids talk now? Hell have they taken the time to go through their children’s cell phones anf see the chit they text??

    Ughhhh sometimes I wish I could go to another planet…. lol

  33. beyugly February 7, 2014

    Yawn….People have nothing better to do with their lives…@the truth Rihanna has no new album out…When R8 comes out she will steal the show….When will t********* have more views than Rihanna??

  34. Ratedx(next bish) February 8, 2014

    oh boy…really this video is what’s wrong with this world?

    some people needs some good dack in their lives.

    I’ve seen worst shiit in other videos…rihanna stay having bitter h*** on her dack

    shiit maybe maybe if yall had someone in yall lives, you biter h*** wouldn’t be on every rihanna post bashing her for being a very sexual/sensual woman…

    rihanna is not married , she doesn’t have any children, who gives a shid whos dack she’s hopped on

    heck I would fugg her…she’s is that sexxy

  35. Ratedx(next bish) February 8, 2014

    people are just mad that rihanna had more chemistry with Shakira than that $2 w****, who has to resort to selling a**, to stay relevant…

    go on ahead rih rih…with your bad bish a**

  36. FutureCIARA February 8, 2014

    The video had to cause some type of controversy to cover up the massive FLOP that is CRTFY…….

    They are not fooling anybody with these paid for antics and gimmicks, who TF really cares. You see girl on girl action in almost every got dam music video.

    Shakira and Ri really lose points from me for this desperate reach!!!!!

  37. FutureCIARA February 8, 2014

    Chawld PUHLEEEZ

    No straight man is masturbating to this generic video.

    The only audience this video reached are the gay and lesbian community with its constant replay in the clubs in third world countries, and lil queens who play this continually on YouTube.

  38. rih rox((U Mad Bro?)) February 8, 2014

    You talk about princess Rihanna…. why dont you talk about that elephant’s controversies?…. you know that senior citizen???

  39. rih rox((U Mad Bro?)) February 8, 2014

    Rember that fat cow walking between those slim long legged gorgeous girls? looool! She thought she looked cool, edgy and s***….instead she looked fat, short and stocky…almost like a grandmother leading her granddaughters for a walk. I couldn’t stop staring at those s*** long legged beauties besides her. I’ll give her one thing she is COURAGEOUS!

  40. rih rox((U Mad Bro?)) February 8, 2014

    I only brought that up…above comment up. But wasn’t beyCOWce involved in beastilality(sp)? She had those girls licking her udders.

  41. Stephy Tha Lambily February 8, 2014

    @Rih ROX… Your a fuckking JOKE!!!

  42. Rihboy February 8, 2014

    Lol…yet the video has more views than beattiful liar…any of her recent drops, and is coming up on a vevo views record. Please spare me about whose watching the video. Thank you all stans for making your routine check in to the video. For whatever reason your doing it, something made you watch it. more than once lol. @Futureciara But im out had slight lesbian action in the beginning when ciara was attempting to twerk on top of Nicki tho. They loose points for something seen in so many old videos? its been done. For the upmteenth time.

  43. Tyler February 8, 2014

    @Enough Onika
    Exactly! Tarbird….oops I mean Lovebird, is a walking contradiction. What a lunatic lmao.

    How you feel!? I mean, you were trying to crucify Beyonce not too long ago. Oh I see…you think that it’s cute that Rihanna had to resort to lesbian activity just to catch all of our attention haha hmhmmm.

    @Rih C**…I mean Rih Rox
    B**** shut your Rihmedial ass up. You’re making a spectacle of yourself.

  44. Chris February 8, 2014

    It cant promote lebianism because the girls have to be lesbian to want it that way. They must be born that way.
