She’s back and she’s Done It Again!

All’s alright in the world. We can all heave a collective sigh of relief and yell: Yayyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!

Ok, let’s not get carried away.

Doin' It Again 2

I love this lady. First of all, can she pen a right catchy ditty or what? Don’t worry, whenever, wherever, underneath your clothes, my hips don’t lie – see, even the song titles make poetry! I’ll hold my hand up and confess that I’ve on many an occasion been a bit of a Pop Snob. Eurrgh, I don’t listen to such prepubescent drivel – leave that to Saturday girls at Jane Norman (high street Spandex Specialist chain.) However, as one becomes well-esconced in their 30’s I’ve started to let my inner pop light shine a bit more. In other words, I don’t give a damn. Shaksters, je t’aime beaucoup. I will forever worship at your throne of bonkers-ness.

Secondly, can this lady dance. Actually “dance” doesn’t quite justify her Pelvic Dexterity. I’m not sure if those lovely people at Oxford have figured out a word for this yet. It’s the 8th Wonder of the Modern World. See her do verging-on-obscene, mind-boggling  things with her body on the “She Wolf” video if you don’t believe me.

And now this:-

Her bed-making technique was quite unusual

The bed bugs gave them such a nasty fright…

Always one step ahead, La Shak has gone all Ang Lee on us. Taking Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon as her cue its a battle of the sexes to see who gets to hug the duvet. High kicks, somersaults that would make a Russian gymnast jealous, raw emotion, drama, action! Never seen nowt like it in me life! If this girl doesn’t win Video of the Year, Song of the Year and, heck, Body Contortionist of the Year then we’re gonna have another Kanye Situation on our hands and we don’t want that little tyke to get upset now, do we… That wasn’t a question, natch!

Best of all, though, are the Scenes of Serenity amidst all that balletic gung-ho. La Shak has been paying attention during style class. Who would have thought it? Cult fashion photographer Deborah Turbeville’s iconic sauna scene of wistful über babes in the mist has been be so lovingly recreated. Now that’s what I call Artistic Integrity. Genius!

Give the girl a hip replacement.

She Wolf lyrics in Spanish translated into English using Google language tools. This could be fun…

Sigilosa passing
Sigilosa passing
That wolf is special
Watch her, walk walk

Who did not want lycanthrope a goddess
In the heat of a romantic evening
My screams are called
I want a tame wolf

I finally found a cure-all that clear at all to blame
I will not stay by your side watching TV and listening to apologize
life has given me a ravenous appetite and you just give me candy
I go with my legs and my youth around even though you killed jealousy

A wolf in the closet
You want to leave
Let him eat the neighborhood
Before going to sleep

I stilettos magnetic
To stop the frenzied herd
The full moon like fruit
It gives advice and listens

I carry a special radar to locate single
If anything I get in trouble also carried the number of firefighters
not very nice or divos types or rich kids I know what I want
have a wonderful time and behave badly in the arms of a knight

A wolf in the closet
You want to leave
Let him eat the neighborhood
Before going to sleep

When they are almost one she-wolf in heat greets the moon
Doubt if walking down the street or go into a bar to try his luck
It sits on your table and sets its sights on their next prey
Pity the unsuspecting who did not expect any of these

Sigilosa passing
Sigilosa passing
That wolf is special
Watch her walk, walk

Let him eat the neighborhood
Before going to sleep

This is so goooooooooood….


First saw this in bar in Paris. Near Palais Royal. A backstreet. One of the few places that you can smoke inside. An odd experience –  sipping German bier whilst puffing on a Marlboro Gold – made even more odd by the mute-button-on screening of La Shak doin’ her ting. Flesh coloured body stocking, inexplicably agile limbs, thrusting “lady garden”, a cage, the glitter-festooned innards of a nymphomaniac cow, nonsensical lyrics:-

…..Starting to feel just a little abused
Like a coffee machine in an office (aaa)…

…Nocturnal creatures are not so prudent,
The moon’s my teacher, and i’m her student…



A good manicurist is so hard to find these days
