Take Something Within Ninety Degrees of a Bow

Posted by gauloises1 on February 24, 2010

You have to hand it to his people. When you’re wandering through London Bridge station and ‘SINGER LEAVES FOOTBALLER’ is superseded by ‘NADAL IN SHAKIRA VIDEO’ on the big screens – which, while displaying the least newsy version of what could possibly be called ‘news’, are probably an accurate barometer of the public consciousness – you know he’s doing something right.

I. The thing is that. Er. I’m sorry, was I saying something?

To quote my dear Jewell, “it took me a while to notice that Shakira was in it too.”.

    For me, I noticed Shakira right away… those two are sexy together.

      Exactly right. Visibly gelling together in a way that’s impossible to fake. Like when it feels good to touch somebody.

      Google the lyrics to Gypsy – wouldn’t be surprised if she had written it with him in mind.

        I think it’s no secret that Shakira’s been wanting Nadal for a long, long time. 😀

        As for Nadal, the ass peek is nice (although we’ve all probably seen it in all its glory), but the photo’s not affecting me like the rest. I prefer the video. 🙂

    LOL- great quote Jewell.

    I mean, Rafa usually doesn’t do anything for me, but this pic…..wow. Yeah. Nicely done.

    Damnit Gaul! I trusted this to be the one place I could get away from all the Ashley/Cheryl shennanigans!

    Also, Rafa is giving me the feelings even though I usually don’t find him attractive. Love the hint of ass we’re shown.

    I always just think of Rafa as cute…and then there are pics like this.

    What Jewell said.

    *Thud* is dead.

    Notice how Shakira’s pinky seem to trace the outline of Nadal’s waist or hips or whichever. I confusing!

    Even Rafa’s jawdropping hotness doesn’t stop me giggling at the idea of them shagging atop a volcano. I know it’s a metaphor and all, but I’ve been atop a volcano and it stank of rotten eggs. Thinking about it though, I did actually cook a banana in the hot rocks, which creates an even better metaphor.

    Do anyone know how Xisca reacted to the picture of Rafael and Shakira? And, how Xisca is on the working arrangement b/w her boyfriend and Shakira?

    • robert said

      We do not know her reaction to his slams either. Nor to his working relation with Pau Gasol in TimeForce commercials. Her only public appearances so far were some official and paparazzi photos.

      She seems to be a private person and a non celebrity who doesn’t give interviews, so her oppinion on this music video is not known.
