Above on the left, Shakira shaking on stage in June 2010 and on the right, Shakira in her newest video, ‘Loca’, where she looks considerably thinner. Like that’s-not-even-her-shape thinner: her torso looks positively elongated, her face looks thinner and her hips are less curvy.

Must take a look!

Shakira DID confess before that in order to lose weight for her videos, she diets intensively and literally cries of cravings:

“I needed a whole month to get back into shape. I danced, worked out and had to stick to a strict diet – only fish, spinach and a specially-prepared dessert with tofu. For the first time in my life I was dreaming of chocolate and cake and always woke up with tears in my eyes.”

i’ve got to agree with “babe”….if you’re a guy coming in here to comment on girls’ shapes and weight, then you can’t be straight.

none of my straight guy friends would do that. my gay guy friends, however, would.

Or they come to appreciate girls’ bodies as opposed to critiquing them. its what straight guys do ;]

thats stupid, men and women can look at whatever they want without questioning their sexuality

thank sdfds. it’s a shame women are so hard on each other that they make themselves imserable to look like a starving person the say it looks good, it really doesn’t, that’s why the photoshop alessandra ambrossio to maker her veins and weird ligaments and bumps go away so she looks .(unless you have some predeterined thing believing flesh is sin, which is awful, move to poorer place on earth and trade with them, then you can be starving because you have to be, not because you have “will”v- You have weakness to all the peer pressure so you starve… Read more »

She did lose weight, but still looks amazing, though the right pic isn’t doing anything for her. I, personaly, prefer her before, with more curves.

By the way, her video is super nice!

Obviously this should be about the limit as far as weight loss goes, but she looks incredible….really tight body, amazing abs, tiny waist and curvy round booty!

monkey
Guest

Those are not just abs, I have the same body as hers and I’ve been her size and smaller, if you see closely, her ribs are showing in that picture. I think she has gone a little too far, but its her choise. She should be careful because to me it seems that she is definetly feeling the pressure.

Casey
Guest
Casey

That might be because she’s sucking her stomach in. I think it’s called a stomach vacuum, it’s an exercise and also a frequent movement during belly dancing. Either way, the bottom of your ribs should show when you do that. If they don’t, there’s a good chance you’re carrying too much belly fat for your frame, or your ribs are really inverted in.

i agree. she looks good.

monkey

it’s not just when she dances, when she is on her rolling skaters, standing straight, it still shows

eik

It’s probably for the first time I don’t find her extremely sexy and attractive. I mean, she is always beautiful, but she doesn’t look at all like herself in her video, at least not her body. If I would have seen a picture of her body without her face I never would have guessed it was her.
Also, her video looks like it’s been photoshopped a lot, because even though she might be slimmer, it’s like she has lost her hips. She looks way better when she has her beautiful curves.

Mary
Guest
Mary

Even if its photoshopped…she lost a lot of weight. and yeah she lost her hips! 🙁 nooo, she was much better before. I hope she changes back…But i like the song

Thora
Guest
Thora

No–She looks great! She and I have quite similar body-types. I’d love to tone up as she has!

b
Guest

I think she looks amazing too! If I were to have a celebrity body twin, it’s Shakira. I gain in all of the same places. 5-10lbs, for me, is the difference between her left pic and her right pic. I doubt she lost a lot, but if she’s anything like me, she probably had to work like heck for it.

She’s totally my motivation!!

DQ
Guest

I think she looks great in general, but in terms of having a good body for her bellydancing, she did go a bit overboard. She lost her curve in her hip and is too straight now, there isn’t anything to shake! Besides the bellydancing bit, she doesnt look amazing. I’m envious of her abs!

AlexD

heres a video of her video getting filmed where imo she does not look as thin.
the first thing i thought when i saw her loca video yesterday was “what the hell did they stretch her out”
what do you guys think

AlexD
Guest
AlexD
size0??
Guest
size0??

Oh my I didn’t know they could photo shop a video! Your right she does look different in this video above. They did stretch her body out and make her look much thinner in the first video. I think she looks really good!!

amazon
Guest
amazon

oh they have lots of tricks -airbrushing, lighting, filter lenses, to name a few! just try playing with your settings on the tele, wide screen makes everyone look short and fat- its fun 🙂
did you think that everything you see on the tele/at the cinema was real? watch a celebrity on a talk show, maybe not an american one!, and then watch them on shows like gossip girl, watch gritty shows like the shield, and you will see a huge difference in skin tone, body shape, colour etc.

sara

wtf omg how can they possibly do that…i needded to see it to believe it she does looks different…i love her curvy body i think she proves women u dnt have to b stick thin to be sexy..but she looks goo anyways

myriam

Thanks for the video!! Yea I thought the same, they totally stretched her out, they did the same with some of Beyoncé’s videos… totally useless since she looks great the way she is

Isa

Woa! She lost a TON of weight.
I mean, she still looks phenomenal, but she really did lose a lot.

She really looks amazing. Not at all, she is really perfect looking there. Just an awesome transformation.

ugh GOD exactly what i want to look like. skinny but sexy. perfecttt

Katheryn

I think she looks amazing in each! I guess she might as well look fabulous like she does in the left picture and still eat her chocolate cake, rather than crying to look like the one in the right. ^^

It’s just amazing what a good work-out and strict diet will do for your body..

She looks like she’s lost some muscle in her upper body. Muscle wasting is not good for you at all. While I think she looks okay, I’m not so sure this is how she should be.

bigvinamac

i prefer her with curves but she still looks great.

Mondezzio

Oh wow! I think she looks amazing!
Her body is exactly what I want mine to look like.
Also I would just like to point out, that it must have been very uncomfortable when she went into the water wearing leather. (in the video obiviously)

too much? no i think she lost it too fast to be healthy..

lizzy
Guest
lizzy

she looks stunning. i think this is just about perfect. she is in great, great shape. that’s what a really healthy diet and exercise does! though i do think that there seems to have been some editing to make her slimmer too (this is often done for britney and beyonce in their videos). regardless, she always looks so beautiful to me.

Emma
Guest
Emma

… But living off of *only* (and she did say only) fish, spinach, and tofu dessert isn’t a healthy diet.
She might look great, but if you’re waking up with tears in the morning because of your diet, you’re doing something wrong.

lizzy
Guest
lizzy

it’s a healthy diet, period. eating healthy foods is a healthy diet. but restricting yourself to the point of tears is not healthy. let’s end it there.

Inanna
Guest

She looked good before, but now she looks great! I’m not into hip hop but other than that she has such a powerful, feminine energy about her. Not like the other “dolls”, she seems genuinly strong and powerful.

Sharen
Guest

This is hip hop? I thought it was just some kind of crappy pop… whatever, her music has only gotten worse and worse over the years..

Michelle

Uugh!!! Do a little research and don’t print lies. A more accurate artichoke would be “WHY did they decide to stretch her in the music video?”

As you can see from paparazzi photos of the video shoot, she looks the SAME

You’re right, she does look just the same in those photos. Thank you for posting the link.

The only reasons I can think of for them stretching her out is that they think she’s ‘too big’ and/or ‘too short’.

i agree she just looks too thin . the fact is ,clearly shakira is not a naturally thin person, she’s always had curves ( hips /ass) some people who are sayin oh she looks great i have the same body …it prob looks great and normal on you guys who are naturally thin .that suits you ,but think back shakira has always had a curvy body . no curves on her is just wrong ,also she looks like she’s lost alot of muscle and that’s not healthy it takes alot to burn muscle so she obviously has’nt done this the… Read more »

I miss the old shakira body. She doesn’t look horrible or deathly thin, but it looks like the unobtainable body.

Before she was my inspiration because she was thin, toned, and had just enough to seductively shake (as in b❆❆bs and butt) while she was dancing. Now there’s really nothing to shake…

Her hips don’t lie — unfortunately, they’re not saying anything right now because they’re too hungry.

Good call.

She looks amazing in the video!

She definitely looks a bit stretched out in the video. Either way, I prefer her with a little more something to shake…not that she doesn’t look absolutely amazing now. Good for her for working hard to tone up, but I hope she doesn’t lose those famous hips.

TJ
Guest

Saw her on letterman and she looked like her old self, a bit fitter and darker after the summer. The video looks stretched out. If she was too thin, she’s back to her normal weight now

god i wanna say she looks too thin, but i know it’s just cause i m so jealous

maddie

she could even afford to llose a bit more

Cristina
Guest

It’s stretched, not actual weight loss. Yeah, i love the comments how she could lose more. Lol, that’s ridiculous. Maybe she should get surgery, chop her hipbones off, to fit the standards some of you have. You may lose all the weight in the world, you don’t lose your bones and therefore body shape. Her hips will not shrink miraculously, it’s bones over there….

When did she get dreadlocks?

Chrissy

when they used wax to twist up her hair, she does this look on occassion, no actuall dreading needed.

She looks incredible beautiful and wow her dancing.I like her in both sizes curvy and less curvy she`s always beautiful to me and the video it`s nice really energetic!

Guest

I don’t think it is too drastic yet but shakira loves her booty too much so i think she will gain the weight back. Dancing and all that touring is probably why she is looking thinner.

IF YOU WAKE UP WITH TEARS IN YOUR EYES EVERY DAY, then yes, you have gone too far… Poor girl..

That was exactly what I was about to comment.

But I still think she looks sooooo goood in the video.

She looks amazing anyway slimmer or bigger. She is naturally sexy and pretty. Love Shakira.

Too thin for her usual self. Looks much younger than she is. I find her very pretty but her music is awful.

don’t like her hairdo as well… or the clothes, or anything in this video for that matter

YES, she lost too much weight. She’s too skinny!!

Just continuing from Michelle’s comment where she posted the link to show she was stretched out you can defo tell in the still photo at the top of the page anyway because her shoulders look narrower and you can’t make your bone structure smaller. Personally, I think she looks less attractive ‘skinnier’. It doesn’t suit her at all and her waist-hip ratio looks rubbish compared to what it was before.

terri

Why would she ruin her body she looks o much better curvy!!!!!!!

tj
Guest

Oh for goddness sake, she lost a little weight and toned up even more, what is the problem? She looks a damn sight better than that Christina Hendricks woman you alll seem to love so much. Christina is unfit and soft. Shakira looks toned and very healthy, yet she still cops flack for it?

tj
Guest

“She looks way better when she has her beautiful curves.”

Uggh comments like this annoy me. You don’t lose ot gain curves from putting on weight. Curvy is a body shape and not a size or weight. I am so sick of “curvy” now been used to describe overweight women.
You don’t become “curvy” from putting on weight.

size0??
Guest

I totally agree. I am so tired of fat women calling themselves curvy to feel better about themselves. Curvy is not fat. You can not be fat and curvy.

Mary
Guest
Mary

Agree too.
Great commentary.
Fat is fat.
Thin is thin.
Slim is slim.
Curvy is curvy (not necessarily fat!)

amazon
Guest

i think curvy is about shape, but i also think size does comes into it. people focus on the WHR way too much. have you ever seen the wHR of an anorexic? It can be very high. Some weight is required to create that soft round look, so people like alessandra ambrosia( or whatever her name is) are too long and stringy overall no matter what their WHR to be called curvy IMO. shakira does look stretched and that might be her idea, she is short and every time i have seen her in public on talk shows etc she… Read more »

I think she was smoking hot in her first video. She looked different from other little pop singers. There was something really special and sexy about her. Now? She’s like all the others… too skinny, no curves at any place…. So sad. She was such a beauty. I want to scream out loud to all those celebes: for the sake of men, stop loosing so much weight! Slim is nice, but skinny?? Ewww…

bigvinamac
Guest

she’s not that skinny because she still has her curvy body and there is nothing wrong being skinny. like men will care if a woman loses her shape because they might still like the woman.
