 An email had been circulating that pop recording star Shakira allegedly made a comment on MTV in Europe saying "I'd rather have pigs listening to my music than Israelis."

MTV has confirmed that no such comment was made on its network In addition, a spokesman for the DeMann Entertainment Company, the Beverly Hills-based management agency for Shakira, said the accusation is "wild and baseless" and "never happened....Anyone who knows Shakira, heard her speak or read her interviews, knows how absurd it is to suggest that she would make any statement that would foster ill will between people of different cultures, countries or faiths...This is entirely contrary to her personal beliefs."
