Even superstars like Shakira aren’t exempt from unexpected surprises during music video shoots. The Colombian sensation recently had a humorous encounter with a furry guest during the filming of her collaboration with Manuel Turizo, “Copa Vacía.” In a behind-the-scenes clip shared on her Instagram, Shakira lets out a loud scream as a rat ventures perilously close to her head while she portrays a mesmerizing mermaid in the video.


Shakira Screamed When Filming New Music Video

The incident took place while Shakira was lying in water surrounded by rocks and debris. Although the location of the shoot remains undisclosed, it seems the natural setting attracted some curious wildlife. Despite the initial shriek, Shakira found the humor in the situation and shared the amusing video with her fans on social media, playfully commenting, “Things that happen even to mermaids.”

The rat encounter wasn’t the only eventful moment during the “Copa Vacía” video shoot. Shakira encountered an unexpected wardrobe malfunction when the fish tank in which she was filming broke, causing flooding on the set. Trapped in her mermaid tail, Shakira had to be rescued by a crane, leading to a memorable anecdote for the singer.

“Every man for himself. Good thing it was just an anecdote, and I’m here to tell it,” Shakira said.


Despite the challenges faced during the shoot, Shakira’s sense of humor and resilience shone through. Before the video’s release, she shared another amusing behind-the-scenes clip, that shows her being carried around different parts of the set while eating a snack in her mermaid costume.

“Copa Vacía” is Shakira’s Latest Single Since Split With Gerard Piqué

Shakira has released “Copa Vacía,” one of the many recent singles, since her high-profile split from ex-partner Gerard Piqué. While she hasn’t released a full-length album since “El Dorado” in 2017, Shakira continues to amaze her audience with her music and artistic endeavors.

She received Billboard’s Woman of the Year award at the inaugural Latin Women in Music gala in May, recognizing her talent and dedication. During her acceptance speech, Shakira reflected on the seismic changes in her life and how she accepted the strength, bravery, and independence that comes with being a woman.


She shared her personal experiences of forgetting herself while seeking the attention and love of others, a sentiment to which many can relate. With each music video, each song, and each performance, Shakira continues to inspire and entertain her global fan base, leaving us eagerly awaiting her next artistic adventure.
