"We don't have to save the world. The world is big enough to look after itself. What we have to be concerned about is whether or not the world we live in will be capable of sustaining us in it." -Douglas Adams
look at her early music videos. she looked like the normal run of the mill american teenage 'pop singer'. you wouldnt know she was Equadoran.
she has success, and then has to make the transition from teeny-bopper to 'diva'. how do you claim the respect? well for some reason hip hop/rap/r'n'b appears to be the trendy thing so she loses the white girl look and re-discovers her roots and goes all latino....if you get what i mean.
i dont think shes betrayed her nationality in anyway. she knows that image counts for about 70% of success.
but yeah, what shyloh said. she was way pretty before she got in with missy elliot, pink, mia and the other lot.

She is a pretty girl though.
I think yer thinkin of Shakira. Shakira's boyfriend's dad is some kinda crooked politician in Argentina who just got run outta town on a rail, I think. Google it or somethin. But I'll bet ya that's what yer thinkin of. Cuz I made the same hazy connection in my mind, until those highly tuned gears started crankin, and then, of course, I instantly honed in on the correct answer to yer query and a new line of inquiry to set upon at once. THere. I live with a college senior who can recite all of this kinda shit to me flawlessly but could not pass a basic test in US history or government if someone were holding a gun to my head. I'll grant ya that he has lttle need commercially for such knowledge, as its dearth in his life is shared by a large majority of people in the marketplace. But it still seems an awful waste to avoid it on purpose in school as though it were an unpleasantness that the kids should be spared from as much as possible. I mean, what's this fuckin country comin to, anyway?
