Here it is folks. Finally the full version of Shakira’s hot music video for her song “Gypsy“, featuring a scantily clad Rafael Nadal, a scandalous straddling scene, and a kissing scene that I’m sure Xisca DID NOT approve.
Okay, now that I’ve had some time to process all this (thanks, Fritters, for posting the vid), I just have to say: Shakira plays the harmonica????
Seriously, she’s one smart woman. Here’s Shakira on why she chose Rafa for the video:
“I thought that maybe I needed someone I could in some way identify with. And Rafael Nadal is a person who has been totally committed to his career since he was very young. Since he was 17, I believe.” (via The Globe & Mail)
Translation: “I thought that maybe I needed someone I could make out with – over and over again for multiple takes. And Rafael Nadal is a person who has been totally hot and sexy and adorable since he was very young. Since he was 17, I believe.”
Yep, being an international pop sensation has its perks – like you can say “I want to make out with Rafael Nadal.” And it happens.
Just more proof that being a tennis blogger wasn’t the wisest career move. Sigh. . .
