Now that they've seen what Shakira's hips can do, music conglomerate Live Nation wants to see what the rest of her can deliver. The Colombian pop star, who's single "Hips Don't Lie" catapulted to the top of the charts in 2006 and made her subsequent Oral Fixation tour one of the most popular in the last decade, is on the verge of signing a multimillion dollar deal with all-in-one music behemoth, worth close to $70 million according to the New York Post, though insiders say Shaki is worth quite a bit more.
