Latin pop star Shakira — in case you are not familiar, she sings that ubiquitous ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ song that your girlfriend probably liked — is a rocker at heart. You have more in common with the pint-size pop star than you might think. In a recent Google Music interview, the lovely and talented Shakira confessed to being a huge Metallica fan.

Scroll to the 6:08 mark. She says she likes the “rock” segment of her show and that she thought it would be a nice surprise to include that in her repertoire on her current tour.

“I am great fan of bands like Zeppelin, Nirvana, The Cure,” this closeted rocker said. “I used to be a huge Metallica fan when I was 15 [and] 16 years old. I remember I was graduating from high school back then and I used to sing ‘Nothing Else Matters’ all day long. I am still a very huge Metallica fan, though. I thought it would be kind of surprising to include it in my repertoire for this tour.” Shakira is one of us, rock fans!

Do we smell a collaboration cooking? After the ‘Lulu’ album with Lou Reed, nothing is impossible with Metallica.
