Shakira to Appear as Herself on Ugly Betty

by at . Comments

Shakira, and her honest hips, will soon give acting a shot.

Ugly Betty creator, Silvio Horta says the singer will appear on an episode of the ABC hit this fall, telling People:

“We had a very memorable moment in the third episode where Betty has a makeover that goes wrong and she struts down the street to ‘Hips Don’t Lie.’ We’ve mentioned [Shakira] several times over the course of the series and have always wanted to work with her. She’s an enormous Latina icon, as is Betty, and we thought it was a perfect fit.”
