“For that reason, we are doing our small part to help Haiti rebuild and give the children affected by this disaster the chance to learn and thrive. I hope we can use some of what we”ve learned working in Colombia to help Haiti”s children recover.

“When we educate children we empower societies, and right now Haiti needs all of our help,” she added.

The 32-year-old singer, who has been engaged to Antonio de la Rua, 36, for the last four years, said that she’s planning to try for a baby as soon as possible because her ‘biological clock is ticking’.

“I”m dying to have a baby. We both are. I”d like two and Antonio would like three,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

“So probably after my next album, which comes out next year. I don”t think it could be sooner because in 2010 I”ll be touring as well.

“In fact, my biological clock is already ticking and I don”t know how to describe it. It”s just becoming a physical need now,” she added.

Shakira has said that she was born with her famous hip-swivelling moves and never had to take any formal lessons.

The ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ hitmaker told German magazine Fit For Fun she could belly dance from birth.

“For me, it was, and is, more of a natural thing,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

“It”s something that was practically given to me at birth, and for which I never had to train myself.

“These movements, they are inside me and I can call them back whenever I need them,” she added.

ShakiraColombian singer Shakira is keen to record a duet with actor Robert Pattinson after witnessing his musical talent in ‘Twilight’.

The singer was introduced to the vampire film, which stars British hunk Pattinson as vampire Edward Cullen, after an executive at her record label noticed its themes are similar to those explored on her upcoming album, She Wolf.

“The president of my label said, ”Have you checked out Twilight? It”s about wolves and vampires and things.” And I”m like, ”Ah, that”s up my alley. I mean, where is it?” And I watched it and loved it,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling MTV.com.

She admits she”d love to duet with Pattinson, who played piano and recorded vocals for two songs on the Twilight soundtrack.

“I”ve heard he”s a great singer and a great musician. If those rumours are true – yeah, of course, why not?” she added.

ShakiraColombian singer Shakira has said that her latest album was created to distract her fans’ attention away from the recession.

The ”Hips Don”t Lie” singer insists that her latest musical offering, ”She Wolf”, was designed to help her fans forget about the world”s current financial crisis and enjoy themselves.

“It”s a very electronic album. Dance-oriented, club-oriented. I want people to have fun with it. Forget about their troubles. Forget about the crisis. Forget everything for a minute – at least while they listen to the music,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling MTV.

Although she knew she wanted to use her music to cheer people up, the 32-year-old popstar was terrified the final outcome would not be a success.

“You never know the final destination of a creative project. At first, you are standing in front of a white canvas, and that”s the scariest thing on earth,” she said.

“You don”t know if you”re going to do justice to the gifts that you have been given. Or if you are going to be able to present the public something decent.

“You just have a huge question mark in front of you, and it”s just frightening. But from the beginning of the project, I knew that I wanted an album that had a lot more to do with electronica,” she added.
