Just when I thought I could not possibly love her more, I get a hold of this video.
And then I find that, Monday, January 23rd, Shakira received the “Chevalier De L’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres” from the French Minister of Culture Frédéric Mitterrand.
Here is the news from her website"
"She was honored this afternoon by the French Minister of Culture Frédéric Mitterrand who presented Shakira with the medal, which recognizes significant contributions to the arts and literature. Shakira is the first Colombian ever to receive this honor, which has previously been awarded to TS Eliot, George Clooney, and Clint Eastwood.
Shakira commented: 'I am so humbled to receive this honor in a country like France that has shared an important cultural legacy with the rest of the world.'"
In the words of Francis Cabrel, je l'aime à mourir!
