Lucky that my breasts...

...are small and humble, so you don't confuse them with mountains. Now that's a lyric eh? After several years of not hearing Shakira's mighty opus I can't escape it...or her...not that I'd want to of course. That nice Mr Branson has given all of his loyal Virgin Media customers free "Music On Demand" for the whole of February so we can watch oodles of music videos for free, instead of forking out 75p a pop. That includes the lovely Shakira writhing around in mud and wiggling her hips and things...

Now the NME, which is swiftly becoming a musical version of Heat (as opposed to this site which is swiftly becoming a version of Dirty Old Men Monthly), informs us that Shakira has just sold one of her bra's for £1,500 to raise money for charidee. In a vague effort to make all of this perving even vaguely music related, nay cultural even, have a butchers at the Spanish version of the Whenever, Wherever video or Suerte as she calls it. Bless.

Musically, is Shakira more deserving of your column-inches (hmmm) than, say, James Blunt? ;)

Baron - notice 'musically' there, if I hadn't put that I guess I'd be answering my own question.

Good point...stand by for my 1500 word appreciation of Mr Blunt's "You're Beautiful"...but then again ARE his breasts small and humble? No! Pah. Irrespective of the loveliness of her Shakiraness that lyric always gets me right there...drink it in once more "Lucky that my breasts are small and humble, so you won't confuse them with mountains" Genius. I rest my case. Oh, and she yodels too. Does Blunt yodel? No. Game set and match.

Don't mistake me for a Blunt apologist ;)

Personally, I think Blunt *is* Shakira with her lils taped down, that squeaky voice is a giveaway, it's obvious it's a woman trying to sound like a bloke. That painted-on stubble just smacks of someone trying too hard. AND! you never see them together at the same pop charity gigs do you?

Can breasts, per se, be humble?

Eeew. Now that's a horrid thought. As for the 'can breasts be humble debate?'...yes, I think they can, unless you're Katie 'Don't call me Jordon no more innit' Price...in which case they're cash points...or fruit machines...no... I'm not going there...
