Shakira, the renowned Colombian singer, recently shared a hilarious behind-the-scenes incident that occurred during the filming of her music video for the song ‘Copa Vacía.’ The video, which features Shakira wearing a green mermaid tail costume, took an unexpected turn when the fish tank on set broke, causing the set to flood. As a result, Shakira found herself stuck in her mermaid costume and unable to climb out of the tank.
In an interview with Univision’s Primer Impacto, Shakira revealed that she had to be rescued by a crane after the incident. She humorously described the situation, saying, ‘Every man for himself. Good thing it was just an anecdote, and I’m here to tell it.’
Before the release of the music video, Shakira gave her fans a sneak peek of the behind-the-scenes footage on Instagram. The clip showed her being carried around the set in her mermaid costume and even eating a snack while still wearing it. She jokingly captioned the post, ‘Sushi anyone? Or #Shakimi?’
While ‘Copa Vacía’ is one of the recent singles released by Shakira, she has not released a full-length album since ‘El Dorado’ in 2017. The song is a collaboration with Manuel Turizo, who gained popularity with his hit song ‘La Bachata’ last year.
In addition to her music career, Shakira has also been making headlines for her personal life. She recently accepted Billboard’s Woman of the Year award at the Latin Women in Music gala, where she spoke about the seismic changes she has experienced as a woman. She emphasized the strength and independence of women, stating, ‘It’s been a year where I’ve realized we women are stronger than we think, braver than we believed, more independent than we were taught to be.’
However, Shakira is also facing legal troubles in Spain. She is currently under investigation for alleged fraud related to personal income tax and wealth tax in 2018. This investigation comes after she was ordered to stand trial in a $13.9 million tax evasion case.
Despite the legal challenges, Shakira remains focused on her career as an artist in Miami. Her representative has stated that she has always acted in accordance with the law and is confident that a favorable resolution will be reached.
In the meantime, fans can enjoy Shakira’s music and look forward to more captivating performances from the talented singer. Whether she’s stuck in a mermaid costume or facing legal battles, Shakira continues to captivate audiences with her talent and resilience.
