Well deserved! We'll clap for this!

Harvard University announced this morning that Colombian singer, songwriter, and philanthropist Shakira has been named their 2011 Artist of the Year by the school's foundation. Gorgeous!

S. Allen Counter, director of the Harvard Foundation, released a statement, explaining their choice, saying:

“The students and faculty of the Harvard Foundation are honored to present multiplatinum artist Shakira with the 2011 Artist of the Year award. Her contributions to music and distinguished history of creativity have been applauded by people throughout the world, and she is greatly admired worldwide for her humanitarian efforts through her Barefoot Foundation.”

Honestly, she is such a beautiful person, inside and out. They really couldn't have picked anyone better to honor.

Shakira will be awarded the foundation’s most prestigious honor at the annual Cultural Rhythms award ceremony on Feb. 26.

Congrats, BB! Put it right next to all your Grammys!

    I don't hate her, I dont have anything against her, but being completely honest she doesn't make quality music.. she is just very commercial, but she is NOT an artist

    I think she is SO beautiful and talented, and if anyone deserves this award I would say she does!

    Did she even go to Harvard? I thought that was the point of honoring someone.

    I'm confused, WHAT did she even DO this past year? Not much, that's what. Harvard is just giving out awards to anyone who'll give them publicity.
