Shakira had a very big day in Cannes, France the other day. She received two separate awards honoring her for her contribution to music over her 22-year career (so far!). The 34-year-old Colombian singer received French Knighthood from French Culture Minister, Frederic Mitterrand who, judging from the pictures thoroughly enjoyed pinning the medal on her breasts. The French honor is called the Chevalier de l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Knight of the Order of the Arts and Letters).
After that, Knight Shakira went on to the NRJ Music Awards where she received the NRJ Award of Honor.
All in all a very big day for Shakira!
