    Latin pop star Shakira has assured fans she is not planning to perform for controversial Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov's 35th birthday.

    A spokesman for the politician recently announced Kadyrov would be celebrating his birthday next month with a glitzy party featuring performances from the Colombian superstar known as Shakira and British violinist Vanessa Mae.

    Shakira quickly denied the report, insisting there is no truth in the Chechen government's claim.

    A rep for Shakira posted this tweet: "Contrary to any misreporting, Shakira is not performing nor was she ever booked to perform a gig for the Chechen President or Government."

    Would you be pissed at Shakira if she played this gig?
