Take a listen to Shakira's duet with Rihanna

When we first heard that Shakira was teaming up with Rihanna for a new song, we imagined something sultry would be the result, a track along the lines of Shakira's hit with Beyoncé, "Beautiful Liar."

But we guessed wrong. The resulting single, "Can't Remember To Forget You," is a Caribbean-influenced rock-fest that takes us back to Shakira's early days.

The Colombian-born songstress co-wrote the track along with RiRi and others, and has been heavily promoting as the first single from her upcoming album arriving on March 25.

What do you think of the single?

Overheard: Shakira talks motherhood

Three months after giving birth to her first child with boyfriend Gerard Pique, Shakira says she’s still trying to figure out the whole baby thing.

“I didn't expect babies to need so many diapers,” the 35-year-old Colombian singer recently told Us Weekly. “Nobody told me they needed to be changed so often!” she joked.

Usher, Shakira debut to solid ratings on 'The Voice'

The spinning red chairs were the same when NBC's "The Voice" returned on Monday night, but the coaches panel had changed a bit.

Instead of Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera, viewers watched Usher and Shakira weigh in on the new season four contenders during the two-hour season premiere. Love the switch or hate it, NBC is likely patting itself on the back after taking a look at the ratings.

Shakira welcomed a son ... or did she?

Shakira’s soccer star beau, Gerard Pique, may be quite the jokester.

On Thursday night, he tweeted a message in Spanish that translates to, “Our son has been born! We are very happy! Thank you all for your messages!”

But Pique posted another tweet on Friday, fueling speculation that he was joking in the earlier post: “Already has a name! It is called Inocencio! Happy Day of innocents to all!”

Similar to April Fools' Day, December 28 is known as a day for pranks in many Spanish-speaking countries.

Shakira, who announced her pregnancy in September, will soon take a seat in one of the revolving chairs on NBC’s “The Voice.” The singer will judge the show’s fourth season alongside Usher, in place of Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green.

Shakira splits from boyfriend of 11 years

After 11 years together, Shakira and her agent beau Antonio de la Rúa have called it quits. The singer confirmed the news yesterday in an open letter to fans on her website.

"Since August 2010, we made a mutual decision to take time apart from our romantic relationship. Throughout this time we have continued to work together hand in hand, have remained close and have kept the details absolutely private, until now," she says.

The 33-year-old Colombian singer adds that the pair views the separation as a time of individual growth, and that they will remain in each other's lives professionally.

"Antonio continues to oversee and conduct my business and career interests as he has always done," she says of de la Rúa, the son of a former president of Argentina. "We move forward as partners, developing projects together, working hand in hand and in close communication. Our friendship and understanding of one another is unwavering and indestructible."

American Music Awards: bandages & bondage wear

Nobody died and dubbed me the arbiter of all things fashionable, but I can spot a "don't" pretty easily, and last night at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles, there were plenty to go around. In fact, there were so many, like J.Lo, you could have tripped on them. Let's take a "trip" down memory lane.

Janet, "Miss Jackson" if you must, looked like a Crate and Barrel couch that had too much bedazzling.

Speaking of bedazzled, Shakira's shorty black number made Janet's look positively dowdy with all the sparkle and glitz. It was sort of a latex, LED tube dress that fit her like a glove. The hips don't lie.

Rihanna is usually lauded for her ensembles, and while I don't always love the '80s outfits she dons, I can appreciate her ability to pull them off. So what happened last night? Rihanna was covered from neck to ankles in what looked like a white velour "onesie." You know, sort of like little kids pajamas. It was offset by horizontal cutouts that looked like tan stripes, which one person described as a glorified Cinnabon and another termed "Ace bandages." She was wearing a short white shrug that looked like football shoulder pads with spikes jutting forth.

Lady Gaga... you expect a dramatic look from her, it's part of the schtick. But her weirdly proportioned nude leotards, oddly wrapped with the accessory of the night, "Ace bandages," offset by a contraption that looked like a ribcage with Christmas tree lights, and very "Alienesque" headgear were beyond the pale. I kept looking at those straps trying to figure out why they were there and what they were hiding.
