A website reports that Shakira was actually initially surprised to hear comparisons to Britney Spears in both the US and the UK. The reason why she was first taken aback at the Britney comparisons was because it’s something that hasn’t happened to her in Columbia.
“It’s funny. You know, my fellow Latin people understand me little by little with each album. They don’t compare me to Britney, at all” the beautiful ‘Objection (Tango)’ vocalistress said.
“They’d be like, ‘What? Britney?!’ Nothing wrong with Britney. She’s a great artist and very beautiful, but I was pretty surprised to be compared to her.”
