During her over twenty-years-career, Shakira received numerous honors and achievements and she broke or equaled several records.

According to Sony, Shakira is the highest-selling Colombian artist of all time, having sold more than 60 million albums worldwide.[108] According to Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems, "Hips Don't Lie" was the most-played pop song in a single week in American radio history. It was played 9,637 times in one week.

Shakira became the first artist in the history of the Billboard charts to earn the coveted number one spots on both the Top 40 Mainstream and Latin Chart in the same week doing so with "Hips Don't Lie". "La Tortura" broke the record on the Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks chart, appearing at No.1 more than any other single (a total of 25 non-consecutive weeks). According to Yahoo!, "Hips Don't Lie" is the Best-Selling Single of the Last Decade.[10] According to Forbes Magazine, Shakira was the fourth highest-earning woman in music for 2008 behind Madonna, Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion.According to Nokia in 2010, there were more Shakira music downloads in the prior year than for any other Latino artist in the last five years, and She Wolf topped the Top 10 Latino downloads. Additionally, she is the only artist from South America to reach the number-one spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, the Australian ARIA chart, and the UK Singles Chart. In 2010, Shakira was ranked number five on the 'Online Video's Most Viral Artists of 2010' with 404,118,932 views.

Shakira has become a YouTube sensation having surpassed 1 billion views on the website with Waka Waka accounting for over 450 million views. She is the third person ever to have done this, after Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber. As of February 2012 the music video for "Waka Waka" is the fourth most viewed video on YouTube and the number-one most viewed High Definition video. Shakira has also surpassed 100 million views with the video for "Rabiosa" and approached to the hundred with videos for "Whenever, Wherever", "Hips Don't Lie" and "Loca".

Shakira was honored at the Latin Grammys on November 9, 2011, as 2011's Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year.

Shakira was to be given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2004, but turned the offer down citing that she did not want to be considered a star of Hollywood.[119] On November 8, 2011, Shakira finally received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame located at 6270 Hollywood Blvd.[120][121]

In 2012, Shakira became the first Colombian to be honored with Chevalier De L’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.







If you want the sim to look like the pictures, in your game, you need to download some custom content. She is however, packed with default skin and EA hair.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

See! I'm not the only Shakira fan:-) Actually, I adore her. She just goes out there and brings it! She is currently my favorite female artist, and has been since 2007. So, Audrey, thank you so much for creating her, and doing such a lovely job. Tortura is my fave all time Shakira song :-) Oh, and that's a fabulous belly dancing out fit. Fits her perfectly!

Even Rayfile is all in chinese or whatever. How are we supposed to tell where the download link is. If I can't get her face I'm wasting my time. Please help, I think she's beautiful and would love to have her in my game.

My security threat remover (Webroot) won't let me even access the page, says it has major threats! So, can't get the face either. Lovely, but I probably won't ever use her without her face .

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.- Maya Angelou

Thank you for this; but for some reason mine came out really messed up. The skin was grey and the face and eyes were misshapen. Maybe due to the recent update?
