    How disappointing! 💅🏾 what was her latest music video that worth to watch!???? Like She wolf maybe….. anyways her kindergarten writing always makes me laugh… here are some good one “ I’m starting to feel just a little abused
    Like a coffee machine in an office” 🤣🤣🤣 “ Lucky that my b****** are small and humble
    So you don’t confuse ’em with mountains” 🤣😂🤣 “ So I learned to cook and finally lose
    My kitchen phobia
    So I got the arms to cuddle in when there’s a ghost or a muse
    That brings insomnia
    To buy more thongs
    And write more happy songs”

    Shakira ? She even don’t have a #1 album and she has just one song #1 over 30 years on the industry. No way she gets this before than Eminem, Tylor, Miley, Lady Gaga, Drake, Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Chris brown, usher, Gwen Stefani/no doubt.

    Guess it was time to go for the Latin audience.

      See why Trump built the Great Wall between borders

      Even the Latin audience isn’t tuning into TVs no more. They’re on social media a lot nowadays.

    Hips don’t lie but Video Vanguard awards do. Shakira? Maybe in 2001 or whenever, but now? Chile, please.

  7. Keith August 28, 2023

    So she was the one who agreed to show up and perform, eh? Ok…

    They’ve gave this award to mostly huge 2000’s artist every year. Meanwhile Usher was literally the NUMBER ONE Billboard Hot 100 artist of that decade with the most number one songs. Also Usher was the solo artist with the most successful album of that decade.

    Usher should’ve been first to get this damn award. Michael Jackson himself hand pickied Usher to perform his songs and join him on stage for a reason.

    I’m still learning to accept that these awards shows will always have some bias and will often fail to get it right.

  10. Really? August 28, 2023

    Wow I’m shocked. I thought it would have been Christina, Katy or Usher. Most were rooting for Gaga, Taylor and Chris brown to get it.

  11. T August 29, 2023

    Shakira ?

    Over Mariah ?

    That’s a crime in itself!

    As is the fact Mariah hasn’t won any VMAs ever!
