The Best Reactions To Shakira's Sneaky Super Bowl Tongue

Her hips aren’t the only thing that don’t lie.

The Super Bowl Halftime has officially ended and boy, oh boy was that a show. I mean, people were obsessed!

If you missed it, check out our recap of it here on the latest episode of It’s Been A Big Day For… 

Latina queens Jennifer Lopez and Shakira gave the pop queens of history a run for their money with this dance-filled, political-statement-making 14 minutes.

Whipping out the hips, playing the electric guitar and playing with a rope, Shakira kicked things off on a wild note. This was eventually carried as J-Lo brought out the stripper pole, giving us Cirque Du Soleil realness.

Two literal queens absolutely killing it.

The two queens also brought out Bad Bunny and J Balvin, to perform ‘I Like It’ and ‘Mi Gente’, ultimately showing how far the Latina-influence on the mainstream music industry has become. 

But, let’s be real, what really made this performance as great as it was, was Shakira’s tongue. Yes, you heard correctly. Twitter has had an absolute field day with this little clip. 

It’s been relatable. 

It got nostalgic. 

It entered the world of Roald Dahl.

It got way too naughty.

It got us hungry.

And, it got goats involved, which we obviously loved.

While it’s all good to have a laugh, one Twitter user pointed out its origins. We absolutely stan a cultured queen.

It was never going to be an iconic Super Bowl without a few memes, and this sure is a good one. And if you need a little refresher on what exactly happened today, don’t worry, we got you!

Taika Waititi Ripping Into The Brits With His BAFTA Speech Is Everything

"This is very, very cool for me, coming from the colonies."

It’s always a rare occurrence when an award-winner’s speech calls out people that are directly in front of them, but Taika Waititi did just that.

Big fan of the awards season? We had a chat about this year’s Oscars on this episode of It’s Been A Big Day For…

The director, writer and producer of Jojo Rabbit, took away the BAFTA for Best Adapted Screenplay (and rightfully so). But the joy of this award comes out of Waititi’s speech accepting the award. 

The self-proclaimed “Polynesian Jew” kicked things off on a slightly awkward note, saying: “Hello… Thanks very much…  BAFTA’s”, pausing after every few words. But then he goes in on the Brits, hard, saying, “ This is very, very cool for me…coming from the colonies…”

After receiving a roaring laugh from the audience, he keeps on going, saying: “Uh, you know, we know it’s been a hard week for you guys… It’s very nice to take a little bit of your gold… back home… where it belongs.” 

God, we do love a Brexit joke, don’t we?

And if that wasn’t funny enough, he then goes on to read aloud the counting-down timer clock placed in front of him. Honestly, you just have to watch it, it’ll make your day:

I could not tell what’s funnier between his speech and Rebel Wilson having absolutely no idea how to react. I simply couldn’t.

He finishes his speech by thanking his mum for showing Waititi the book and teaching him how to read: “I love you for making me read, mum.” A wholesome ending, if you will.

Will Taika Waititi make a similar speech at the Oscars this week? Only time will tell.

Lady Gaga's Warning For J-Lo And Shakira Doesn't Make Any Sense

Rah Rah, Huh? Huh? Huh?

Oh, Lady Gaga. 

A queen, a legend and a wise one. The superstar took the stage in Miami last night for the Super Saturday Night pre-game show. Performing hits from her vast choreography, the audience were subject to bop after bop after bop. 

If you’re a Lady Gaga fan, check out our chat about her not remembering ARTPOP on this episode of It’s Been A Big Day For…

In the middle of her performance of ‘You & I’, Lady Gaga gave a very random message to Jennifer Lopez and Shakira. Gaga said: “I better hear no lip-syncing tomorrow…I love you J.Lo! I love you Shakira!” You can watch the moment it happened, here: 

Now, we hate to be the ones to point this out, but this is a paradox if I ever heard one. Ms Gaga, there is no way that one could simply “hear” somebody “lip-sync”, it’s impossible! Unless, of course, you mean hearing their mouth’s move without any vocals coming out. Having said that, we agree with you and do sincerely hope the vocals are live.

And that’s the tea on that.

Also, that wasn’t the only random moment at the show. Lady Gaga fans threw off the songstress when they persistently shouted the name of her upcoming single that has yet to be released. Check out the footage here: 

Lady Gaga took the Super Bowl stage a few years ago, notably pulling off wild stunts and singing live. Furthermore, the Super Bowl has historically been lip-synced by pop acts until Beyonce opted for live vocals in 2013. Since then, the vocals have predominantly been live.

A stunt queen.

It will be interesting to see if these two Latina queens opt for live vocals or a backing-track to focus on their iconic dance moves. 

You can catch the Super Bowl show live right now on Channel 9.
