Nadal & Shakira ... I think it's on

Their handlers vehemently deny it, but I suspect there’s something there. Last July Rafa purchased a home in the Dominican Republic [where Shakira lives] and now he's making steamy videos with her in Barcelona … lucky SOB!

GOOD FOR RAFA and what better way to motivate and inspire him from injury than a piece of cougar tail like Shakira :p :yeah:

The Daily Telegraph:
Shakira shared a cozy meal with tennis star Rafael Nadal in Spain, sparking more rumours of a love match between the pair.

They were spotted dining at the W Hotel in Barcelona after shooting a video together there late last week, reports the New York Post.

Shakira earlier this month celebrated her 33rd birthday with longtime fiancé Antonio De La Rua, while Nadal has been dating high school sweetheart Maria Francisca Perello, aka Xisca, for nearly four years.

An eyewitness told the Post of the Barcelona encounter, "There was just the two of them at the table together. They were whispering and all smiles. It definitely looked like they are more than just friends. They were there for a few days shooting."

But Nadal's rep, Benito Pérez-Barbadillo, said the dinner was organized with the director to brief Rafa on what was expected from him in the video." Shakira's rep declined to comment.

It was the latest in a series of meetings between the singer and the tennis star which has sparked intense online speculation.

Shakira watched Nadal beat Nikolay Davydenko in Abu Dhabi in December 2008 after doing a concert there. They also cozied up last March when she watched him qualify for the fourth round of the Miami Master Series. After the match, Shakira reportedly asked Nadal if he wanted her to "teach him how to sing" in exchange for him teaching her "how to play." She also said in a filmed interview, "We all know he's an animal on the court, and we're all really proud of him."

Last September, we revealed the pair were flirting at Nobu Tribeca as Shakira promoted her new album, "She-Wolf."

While I'm not a fan of her music, she seems to have some intelligence/substance and does a ton of humanitarian work. According to Wikipedia, "Shakira is interested in world history and frequently studies the history and languages of the countries she visits. After her Oral Fixation tour ended in summer 2007, Shakira attended a class in Los Angeles at UCLA, on the History of Western Civilization. She used her middle and last names, Isabel Mebarak, and told the professor she was visiting from Colombia so as to avoid being recognized as a celebrity.

I'm just judging by own limited experience of glamorous women in professions such as singing, acting, & modelling. Those with a touch of wildness about them (which hardly precludes either intelligence or charitable concerns) can be great fun but will chew you up & spit you out; they should come with a caveat emptor. But don't take my word for it. Look what happened to John McEnroe & Andre Agassi.

Good point. But while Rafa's still very young, he seems pretty mature for his age and I think he more than deserves the freedom to make his own choices [whether good or bad]. And as with any romance/relationship, there's always the risk of pain and sorrow.

Like I said Bonnie, it's my OPINION that there's something there, but I'm not in any position to confirm OR deny the veracity of the rumors. As per regards it being only a "professional collaborative meeting" and that there is no love-match, do you really expect Nadal's handlers to come out and say that he and Shakira are romantically linked? Nope, not a chance. Nadal is Spain's 1st son and he's still with his high school sweetheart [supposedly] and Shakira's engaged. At this stage, it would just be bad PR and tarnish Nadal's his squeaky clean image [... and God forbid the image consultants at IMG recommend going public with this in the post-Tiger era.]

As for any meaningful relevance in all this, as Sophocles mentioned, just look at the profound effect celebs like Tatum O'Neal and Brooke Shields had on Mac and Agassi's careers.

Read up on Shakira and you'll find that the opposite is true. In the mid 90's, she founded a charity in her native Columbia to aid less fortunate children with education. She's performed countless benefit concerts- no pay- and is also a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.

Her list of acknowledgements is a mile long, but..... I suspect you've got other reasons for the words you chose in the post above.

A good friend of mine said these words to me a long while ago- still sticks with me today-

It is morally bankrupt to deride a woman, when her youthful vitality and sexual expression threaten you.

Different strokes though, I suppose. :)

Apparently, they're good friends and he's said he'll be the protagonist in one of her music videos! It's the for song 'Gitana', in which Rafa will be the gitano. (I speak Spanish, and for you non-spanish speakers, that means 'gypsy'!!!) :lol: Can't wait to see it.

Most celebrities these days have a charity, its the trendy thing to do, and its also beneficial for tax returns. Yes even millionaires like paying less taxes.

I would not judge her to harshly or too quickly as being a great person or a horrible person, however i would judge people based on how they themselves act and how they carry themselves as a person, though there is nothing wrong with belly dancing as Shakira is very good at lol, her music videos as a little bit different of a story and shes basically your typical pop princess showing of her body then her actual talent.

Then again, i have heard her voice, and i would rather listen to Azarenka grunt in a 3 hour match, then listen to Shakira attempting to sing, and instead sounding like a goat with a throat problem.

The whole video wasn't as awkward as I expected it to be after seeing some of the screen caps.

Still, it's Enrique & Anna all over again :tape:

Awkward to watch. :tape:
Inevitable, no man that public, young and handsome could have avoided the music video fate.

Buhbye Rafa's career. :tears: From now on, he'll be known as "that hot guy that was in the Shakira video, he plays tennis or smth, right?" to the general public.

(I do love Shakira, just so that's clear. When singing in Spanish, she can do no wrong. :worship: Gurl needs to throw away her English dictionary though, for the general good of everyone involved.)

oh boy, the chair part gave me the LULZ, the rest of the vid is cheesy but passable if only to watch Rafa's body :drool: but the he-sits-in-the-chair-while-she-dances-in-a-sequined-number part? :spit:

what makes you think that?
Look at the video. Which straight man would be willing to hit a practice court and think about tennis, strategies and tactics after shooting a hot vid with such a chick like Shakira? :p I'll be happy if I don't see him playing Sunrise :tape:

The vid is OK. It starts well, very good first shots, then they look like having good times together, having fun, after that some odd part with that dance :rolleyes: and then is the ending which is hot. Overall it's OK.

Shakira was not content with selecting just any male model to portray her love interest in the video for her latest single, "Gypsy," which premiered Friday on Yahoo! Music. So the Latin pop superstar picked tennis champ Rafael Nadal. Shakira thought Nadal would be able to relate to the song's story about a person constantly on the move.

Nadal, 23, is ranked No. 3 in the world and has won six Grand Slam singles titles. In 2008, he won the Olympic gold medal in singles, and he also has to his credit 15 ATP Master Series tournaments. As a part of the Spain Davis Cup team, he helped win titles in 2004 and 2009.

"I thought that for this video, I needed someone who could identify with, someone who had a similar vision," Shakira said in an interview, AFP reports. "Raphael Nadal, who had been very much involved with his career at a young age, fit right in."

Shakira added, "I felt this parallel between the two of us would be portrayed in this video, and I think it came out great."

The chemistry between Shakira and Nadal is undeniable, and might cause some to speculate whether they are an actual couple. But both are in relationships. Nadal is dating his high school sweetheart, and Shakira is engaged to her longtime fiancée Antonio De La Rua.

Like Nadal, Shakira has a personal connection with the song's storyline. "[It] is a song that reflects the way that I live, the way I see life," she said about the song that she also recorded in Spanish as "Gitana." "I have been on the road since I was a kid, and I think that's where the metaphor comes from."

The video was shot in Barcelona, Spain and directed by director Jaume De Laiguana. The song appears on Shakira's "She Wolf" album which was released in November.

OK, I am no fan of Rafa (or Shakira for that matter), but as the eye-candy love interest in this video he did a pretty good job. Vamos Rafa!

yes, because a gypsie and a multi-millionare tennis superstar who travels around the world staying in the best hotels and receiving the best service there is obviously have a lot in common...

get a grip, shakira.

Just another obstacle in the path of greatness for our hero Rafa.
But i know that the matador will not fall for the alluring charms of this witch... but instead concentrate on his game, to win more grand slams and pwn Grandaderer to retirement.
