Argentine Soccer Players and Fans Attack Refs After Controversial Call (Videos)
Shakira Was in a Glass Case of Emotion During El Clasico, and It’s Just the Best (Video)
Watching Shakira watch Saturday’s El Clásico between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid is the best possible thing you could do with the next minute and a half of your life. I promise.
Of course, Shakira is a soccer fan, and most soccer fans pay at least some attention to El Clásico. However, she was no casual spectator. The international pop superstar was living and dying with every touch of the ball, her face alternating between jubilation and despair.
So why was she so emotionally invested in El Clásico? Yes, Barcelona and Real Madrid are the two biggest clubs on the planet, and their rivalry is like Red Sox-Yankees and Duke-UNC combined. But there’s more to it than that. Shakira, for those of you who did not know, has a couple of rugrats with Barcelona defender Gerard Piqué, whom she had been dating since 2010. So for her it was personal.

The best part about this? The game was actually a bit of a snoozer that ended in a 1-1 draw.
If the next Clásico (April 23) is a back-and-forth thriller, she may need a defibrillator.
