Bellydancer Challenges Shakira And Beyonce

BERKELEY, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Beyonce and Shakira’s hip moves have nothing on one bellydancers’ swiveling style.

Professional bellydancer Shabnam is calling out the divas on their “moderately okay” bellydancing moves and challenging them to a battle.

Shabnam, who’s the most awarded bellydancer in the U.S., says the singers have no clue what true bellydancing is and adds that Shakira “isn’t anything special” and Beyonce is a “basic 101 beginner.”

As a result of their wannabe moves, many girls come to Shabnam hoping to learn how to dance like Shakira and Beyonce, even though their bellydancing style is way off.

But now Shabnam wants to serve the singers.

She says, “I’m challenging them to a bellydance-off. I would destroy them. They can’t do a full back bend, use finger cymbals, or do veil work. It’s so much more than what they do.”

Shabnam will be schooling newbie bellydancers on the TRUE art form Saturday (Aug. 22) for Bellydance Day, a holiday she created.
