Have you seen Shakira's ultra-sexy new music video for "Can't Remember To Forget You"? If not, you must have heard the buzz about the hot video, which features the Colombiana in a skimpy piece of black lingerie, fondling pop princess Rihanna. 

In an interview with On Air With Ryan Seacrest, the Colombian singer admits that she knew the sensual video was going to be controversial. 

“I knew people were going to be interested,” she said. “Especially because Rihanna is so big, but this is crazy.”

According to Fox News Latino, the titillating video was shot in December, but before she bared it all for the cameras, she got the seal of approval from her longtime beau, Gerard Pique. 

“I told him. I asked him if he agreed with everything, and he agreed,” the 37-year-old told Seacrest. “I wanted to make sure, because he is super jealous. He’s a man. He’s territorial. He wants to know everything is under control.” 

Shakira also dished on her country collaboration with fellow The Voice judge Blake Shelton. “That was awesome,” she said. “I wrote the song with some people from Nashville, and I sent it to him and I was super nervous. I was like, ‘Oh my god. What’s he going to think?’ and he loved it. He said, ‘Wow! This is exactly what you were talking about. I love this song.’” 

We can't wait to hear her first country song! Watch an adorable clip of the interview below:
