Shakira can now add her name to yet another distinguished list: Grammy winner, Presidential appointee, forgetter of the lyrics to her National Anthem.

Yes, sadly, Shaki is just the latest celeb to mess up the lyrics to her anthem in a very public setting. The proud Colombian was singing in Cartagena at the VI Summit of the Americas (also known as the reason that Obama was in Colombia and where his secret service guards ended up pissing off a local prostitute) when the gaffe occurred.

I mean, she sang the song great, as she always does, but according to HuffPost Latino Voices, she mistakenly sang "El surco de dolores" instead of "En surcos de dolores," and "La libertad de sublibe" instead of "La libertad sublime". Minor mistakes I know--most folks probably didn't even pick them up, but nevertheless, she joins the infamous ranks of other celebs who have also messed up their National Anthems.

Poor Shakira, how embarrassing. But let's not be too hard on her, these four Latino stars have done the exact same thing. Hey, at least she is in distinguished company, right?:

Poor Jenni, wrapped in the Mexican flag, didn´t do justice to the Mexican National Anthem at the Bicentenario por la Independencia de Mexico at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles back in September of 2010. She was so timid during her performance that the audience could barely hear what she was singing!

Xtina made an already bad year (she got divorced, she got arrested, her new boyfriend caused some controversy) worse by messing up the lyrics to the National Anthem at the mother of all sporting events, the 2011 Superbowl

What is it about sporting events? El rey de la canción ranchera (The king of ranchera music) sang "Ciña, ¡oh patria!, tus sienes querida…" instead of  "tus sienes de oliva…" at the opening of the 2011 Panamerican Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. ¡Porbrecito!
