Shakira Meets With Dominican Leader
Thu Oct 10,11:42 AM ET
SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) - Colombian pop singer Shakira paid Dominican President Hipolito Mejia a visit.
The Grammy-winning singer was accompanied Wednesday by her boyfriend, Antonio de la Rua, son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rua, and Dominican businessman George Nader.
"I'm really in love with your country and its people," the 24-year-old singer told Mejia.
Mejia told De la Rua that he was good friends with his father, and invited him to the Dominican Republic in December for vacation.
The former president's son immediately called his father and put him on the telephone with Mejia for a conversation that lasted five minutes. The elder De la Rua accepted the invitation, Mejia said.
Shakira has been vacationing in the Dominican Republic since late July at her summer home in La Romana, 68 miles east of the capital.
Shakira begins her latest world tour of the United States, Latin America and Europe on Nov. 8 in San Diego to promote her latest album, "Laundry Service."
