The 44-year-old Hips Don't Lie songbird smiled from ear to ear, appearing not to be concerned about the drama surrounding her taxes in her first appearance since the judge recommended her fate.

Despite facing potential jail time, Shakira channeled her inner superstar and went back into the studio, delighting her fans with the possibility of new music.
With famed photographer Ellen von Unwerth by her side, Shakira shined like the star she is.
