Shakira, Shakira!

The sexy Colombian singer was honored by Harvard University on Saturday, being named the 2011 Artist of the Year for her artistic talent and humanitarian work.

Previous winners include Will Smith, Sharon Stone and Jackie Chan.

After the ceremony, Shakira made a statement about Latino immigrants and the United States' various anti-immigrant bills:

    "Justice will come. I'm sure. Wherever there is... a kid, who could be the son or the daughter of a Latino immigrant, who cannot attend a school in the United States of America, that kid should be a concern to all of us and our responsibility. I believe we should never think less of the Latino community because it's a productive force in this country."

Columbian singer Shakira has been with beau Antonio de la Rua for 11 years, but since August 2010 the two have been broken up... sad!

The "She Wolf" beauty revealed the details on her personal blog today, calling it a "mutual decision to take time apart from our romantic relationship."

Shakira calls the past 11 years "the most wonderful years of our lives, and thanks to that love and the respect that we share for one another we have been an exceptional couple and partners."

But the singer hasn't lost hope, adding that both she and Antonio "view this period of separation as temporary."
