Is Shakira mad at Pitbull? No, in fact, quite the opposite. The "Waka Waka" singer is featuring the hot rapper in the English version of her new song, "Rabiosa." The new track is a cover of an original song by Dominican porducer El Cata (whom Shaki features on the Spanish-laguage version of the single and on "Loca") and is available on iTunes in both languages.

Jennifer Lopez is a genius and that's why she makes sure her music apeals to as wide of an audience as possible by recording in both English and Spanish.

-Rosario Dawson surprised everyone this weekend at the Spirit Awards.

Shakira has learned that music collaborations are attractive to listeners, especially when they include catchy urban beats from artists like Pitbull and Calle 13's René Pérez. But the Colombian singer is now facing the music after Puerto Rican reggaetonero Ñejo filled a lawsuit against her for not crediting his work in her latest hit “Loca.”

We were super excited to hear that Jennifer Lopez was already shooting the music video for her new single, “On the Floor!”
The new American Idol judge looks absolutely stunning (as usual) and the energy of the video really does make you want to just dance."I play one character where she kind of runs this party, acts like she’s kind of over it, but at the same time loves it and loves this kind of underground kind of party dance culture," explains Lopez. "So I got to be wild and crazy, and I got to be sexy and sweet too."
