Statue of pop star Shakira is unveiled in her hometown in Colombia

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning, I'm A Martínez. Pop star Shakira has three Grammys, multiple platinum records and millions of fans around the world. Now she can add to that list a 21-foot-tall bronze statue doing her trademark hip swivel on display in her hometown of Barranquilla, Colombia. The statue was unveiled this week in front of Shakira's parents and Barranquilla's mayor. The "Hips Don't Lie" singer said that the honor was, quote, "demasiado para mi corazoncito" - too much for my little heart.

It's MORNING EDITION.
