The singers are being blasted by a Colombian politician, who says their steamy Can’t Remember to Forget You music video promotes lesbianism.
“I found a video that evidently contains images that in my opinion are not useful for the emotional growth and development of youths,” Marco Fidel Ramirez told CNN en Español. “I feel it promotes immorality. I think the message that Shakira is sending to the youth and children around the world is a message that sells a lifestyle and promotes a particular orientation, that in my opinion, does not reflect the views of most Colombians.”
He even went as far as to go on Twitter to slam the two more, focusing on Shakira, who is from Colombia, writing: “our Shakira with her erotic video is promoting tobacco usage and has become the worst example for our youth. Shakira’s new video is a shameless case for lesbianism and immorality. It is a danger to children #PeligroVideoShakira. (that means danger Shakira video). It sends a provocative message to weak people who can be polluted and induced to practice.”
Shakira, posted a little Facebook of her own for the politician.
“‘It’s not my fault Shakira & Rihanna are that hot. Deal with it.’ #CantRememberToForgetYou video director Joseph Kahn.”
