Shakira, Shakira!

The sexy Colombian singer was honored by Harvard University on Saturday, being named the 2011 Artist of the Year for her artistic talent and humanitarian work.

Previous winners include Will Smith, Sharon Stone and Jackie Chan.

After the ceremony, Shakira made a statement about Latino immigrants and the United States' various anti-immigrant bills:

    "Justice will come. I'm sure. Wherever there is... a kid, who could be the son or the daughter of a Latino immigrant, who cannot attend a school in the United States of America, that kid should be a concern to all of us and our responsibility. I believe we should never think less of the Latino community because it's a productive force in this country."


Well said!
