Shakira gave a concert in Monterrey, Mexico, last week, and new video shows that while walking through the crowd and touching hands with her fans, one of them pulled a ring right off her damn finger. E! says…
Shakira quickly noticed that her bauble had been deftly and dastardly removed, but as the perp had already disappeared into the crowd—and she was already midsong—after glancing first at her suddenly ringless hand and then back at her fans, she took the thieving quite literally in stride and didn’t miss a beat, continuing her walk back to the stage.
There’s no word on whether the thief was caught.
My first reaction to this is that I’m glad it was in Mexico. Is it racist that, any time I see a video about an old lady getting punched or animals getting fucked or something like that, my immediate thought is, “please don’t be white, please don’t be white, please don’t be white…” I can’t be the only one who does that.
