Shakira Car Accident Update
Shakira’s experience during the filming of her “Copa Vacia” music video has drawn a lot of attention from the public and is now the main topic of discussion in headlines. With hits like “Music Sessions 53,” “TQG,” and “Acrostico,” the well-known Colombian musician has been successful in 2023. This year, he collaborated with another Colombian, Manuel Turizo, on the song “Copa Vacia,” the video for which was released on June 29.
The Queen of Latin Music described the shoot as incredibly long in an interview with Primer Impacto, detailing the terrifying experience. Unexpectedly, one of the fish tanks on the set broke, flooding the surrounding area. Shakira, who was wearing a mermaid tail for the video, got stuck and couldn’t get out.
However, amid this incident, rumors of a car accident involving Shakira surfaced in 2023. These rumors, fueled by the tragic car accident involving another musician named Shakira Adams in Canberra, Australia, in May 2022, led to unfounded speculation.
Adams, facing manslaughter charges and awaiting trial, had no connection to the Colombian superstar. It is crucial for Shakira’s fans and well-wishers to dispel any concerns, as a malicious death hoax circulated online, spawning a fake Facebook page titled “RIP Shakira” and an email harboring malware. The email falsely claimed that Shakira’s manager was driving the car during an accident in La Macarena, Colombia.
Death Hoax Debunked And Health Update
Shakira put an end to these unfounded rumors by showing up and even shining brightly at the 2023 Latin Grammy Awards. She gave two performances of “Acróstico,” her Song of the Year nominee, at the event. Wearing an exquisite gold outfit with an image of the Virgin Mary on it, Shakira performed with a shining microphone, expressing delicate emotions and deep love in the pop ballad that was dedicated to her two sons, Milan and Sasha.
The broadcast included clips of Milan and Sasha, removing any uncertainty regarding Shakira’s health. There is no doubt that Shakira is still alive and well, and any rumors to the contrary are untrue. The performer is still a major player in the music industry and never fails to enthrall audiences with her musical abilities.
