    Colombian pop star Shakira and her hips don't lie to her fans. The singer, 33, revealed that she and her longtime love, agent Antonio de la Rua, have split after 11 years together. Shakira revealed on her website that the duo had split in August, but they remain both friends and business partners. Can someone say "Awkward?" Well, actually, it might not be so uncomfortable, given the statement that the couple released about the matter.

    "We made a mutual decision to take time apart from our romantic relationship," Shakira and de la Rua wrote. "We view this period of separation as temporary and as a time of individual growth as we continue to be partners in our business and professional lives."

    It sounds like Shakira and her former man are keeping the door open for a possible reconciliation or to maintain at least a modicum of professionalism in case things don't work out down the road.

    Are you a Shakira fan? Who should the petite Latina dynamo date next? Or shouldn't she?
