Shakira covers "Smells Like Teen Spirit"?

The rumor that Shakira would include a cover of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit on her latest album seems to be just that; a rumor. The album, Oral Fixation vol. 2, which came out in late November doesn't include the song.

In an interview she did with the magazine Blender earlier this year, she expressed her love of Kurt Cobain and the song: " 'I remember the first time I saw him,' she revealed. 'I saw the Smells Like Teen Spirit video and instantly fell in love with him, even though I couldn't see his face. I just wanted to see his face so much. After weeks of finding out anything I could about Nirvana, I saw his face and he had a face like an angel. I loved him. He was my platonic love.' "

In a September poll of the "world's favorite song", Shakira's La Tortura finished as #5 ahead of the aforementioned Nirvana track on spot #6. Info courtesy of The Daily Mirror.
