In hip twitching developments, we awoke this morning the find Shakira and Rihanna’s new video ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You’ had finally popped up. The vid for the ska-tastic song was shot by top notch director Joseph Kahn. Here are four things we learned from it.
1) Walls Are Pretty Sexy, Y'All
If there’s anything we’ve learned from videos which feature two divas colliding (we’re looking at you, Me Against The Music) plywood walls are pretty damn s.e.x.y. As Rihanna and Shakira stroke them and pose against them, we're getting the message that: walls are pretty hot right about now.
2) …And We’re Definitely Twerking Against Said Walls
In the battle of the Twerker, veteran hip twister Shakira retains her crown (by a cheek). Ri-Ri proves that, although she has admirable mid-body strength, she’s no Shakira, Shakira. In conclusion, her hips don’t lie.
3) Rihanna Is Beyonce Circa 2007
As you will remember from the Beautiful Liar video Shakira and Best Bud For Three Minutes Twenty Eight Seconds, Beyonce, pulled some pretty mean, mirroring shapes.
And in some sort of slicker, more naked, more sophisticated way, Beyonce and Rihanna parallel those moves...
4) Cigars Are The New Accessory Of Choice
In what appears to be a new development, the new symbol of female empowerment for lady singers are apparently cigars. First it was Grimes yapping to Jay-Z at a Grammy’s party and now it’s Shakira rocking a tobacco rollie. Who needs a Birkin bag, eh?
