Shakira has been on a whirl-wind media tour recently, speaking out against the passage of the new immigration laws in Arizona, SB 1070. Although some saw her involvement as an affront since she is not a United States citizen, we think it makes sense that Shaki stepped up to the plate; she herself admitted while speaking to the mayor of Phoenix, "I have no papers here."

She plays Lucia, a modern, independent, ambitious girl—who turns into a wuss when she’s with her traditional Latin family: They don’t know she’s dropping out of law school to pursue a dream, let alone that their angelita lives with her boyfriend and has hot sex on the couch.
