Shakira has landed in some hot water - and we don't mean for being a sizzling Latina. The Colombian diva has received a barrage of criticism on social media after she announced that she is recording a song for her new album in Catalan, the language of Catalonia, the region in southern Spain where the "Waka Waka" singer resides. The song is called "Boig Per Tú," which translates to "Crazy For You" and was originally recorded by Catalan group 'Sau.' The American version of the album will not feature the song.

Shakira and her boyfriend Gerard Piqué have made the city of Barcelona their home - it is only natural that the Catalonian capital would influence the Colombian singer. But Spaniards feel that the song represents a statement of support for the idea of an independent Catalan state. "I already thought Shakira was stupid, but singing a song in Catalan? Really? That just proves it," said one Tweeter. "Shakira singing in Catalan? You make me sick," said another.

Shakira has included the song on her new album '"Shakira," which she presented in Barcelona last Thursday, because it his one of the favorite songs of her boyfriend, Barça player Gerard Piqué. The couple have been together since 2010 and have a son, Milan. According to Shakira, the Spaniard is very conservative: "Piqué doesn't let me do videos with other men, he's a very conservative person," the singer revealed on the show Noticias Caracol.
