Aishwarya Rai v. Shakira: It's On!

My coworker, Lupe (23, Cal Grad), is obsessed with Shakira, the Latin pop/rock diva. He has a poster of her in her office, talks about her all the time, and would totally faint like a girl if he ever really met her. I made the mistake of challenging his love and devotion for Shakira by telling him that Aishwarya Rai is the most beautiful woman in the world because... well, she just is. I guess I initially phrased it as "Aishwarya is hotter than Shakira", which may or may not be true depending on your definition of "hot". I have no disrespect for Shakira - although I really don't know her work that well and I've only ever seen her as a blonde (I'm not a big fan of blondes) - but I'd have to give it to her in the big hair, rocker-chick, tight leather pants, ass-shaking hottness category. In that way she's definitely "hotter" than the ever lady-like traditionally-minded Aishwarya, but I guess that's part of the reason I'm obesessed with Aishwarya. Not only am I convinced she has the prettiest face on the planet, but I like that she's still amazingly hot without all that. Sure she shows a little skin and is an amazing dancer (classically trained in Indian dance and yoga fanatic), but only in the amount generally acceptable in Indian films and by Indian society. Anyway, over the last few days, Lupe and I have been talking about this and have decided that it's basically like comparing apples and oranges since they're such different women... but I still believe that Aish is the most beautiful woman in the world because she toally is. So, without more rambling, here's the big showdown... Be sure to cast your vote!

Aishwarya is awesome and I'm a douche bag for saying otherwise.

Posted by: Lupe at July 27, 2004 04:28 PM

aishwarya has a real milla jovovich thing going on there.

Posted by: holohan at July 27, 2004 04:38 PM

AISH!! As we talked about before this blog was written...brunette Shakira is prettier than blonde Shakira - and she has a sexy bod too, however she's not as BEAUTIFUL as Aiswarya is.

Posted by: Jessica at July 27, 2004 05:06 PM

They are both above average, but there are FAR better out there.

Posted by: Gregness at July 27, 2004 05:12 PM

Hmmm...Even though I like blonde hair, nothing beats the dark hair & blue eyes combo.

Posted by: Erica at July 27, 2004 06:26 PM

i've always been underwhelmed by shakira's body. her breasts are out of proportion to her big old child-bearing hips. they're small and humble, after all. and i like breasts.

Posted by: holohan at July 27, 2004 08:41 PM

In terms of pure beauty, it's the difference between shooting a bullet and throwing it with Ash the clear victor. If you use terms like 'hot' or 'sexy' then Shakira might be more of a contender as she probably gives better blowjobs. Still, I bet Ash is at least willing which gives her a definite edge overall.

Posted by: dr v at July 28, 2004 09:31 AM

I would just like to take a moment and give a shout out to all the women out there will small and humble breasts. While mine haven't been petite since I was a pre-teen, I certainly appreciate a girl with a nice pear shaped figure. (mmmmmm, pears) No disrespect to holohan, but my vote says a mouthful is just as good as a handful any day.

Posted by: Jolie at July 28, 2004 01:51 PM

jolie, sometimes you are just the sexiest thing since sliced bread. (i don't know why i am trying to chat you up all over CH today, especially since everyone knows that of the two of us gene is the gay one.)

Posted by: didofoot at July 28, 2004 01:58 PM

I don't know what's going on either, but I ain't complainin. I will say this though - I'll take a nice, juicy pear over 5 meat any day.

Posted by: Jolie at July 28, 2004 02:26 PM

Catherine Zeta-Jones is one or two million times better than either

Posted by: Eric at July 29, 2004 05:15 PM

Aish and Catherine seem to have a lot in common. Similar hair, similar face shape, full lips and tons of glamour, but I think Aish wins this one, too. And, yes, I do say that because I'm totally biased. Aish is 4 years younger, isn't married to a rapidly-aging man 25 years her senior, has blue eyes, is a much, much better dancer, and is just plain prettier. (I've added a pic of Catherine at the bottom of the article)

Posted by: Kristina at July 29, 2004 09:39 PM

shakira's hot if you're into rock-star glitz; aishwarya is very glamorous (notice i didn't say beautiful) and OK sometimes, though in most of her photos she looks like an animal that's been stunned by car head-lights. in other words, there are women who better looking BY FAR (infinitely FAR) in the world.

Posted by: dave at August 5, 2004 08:43 AM

AISHWARYA??? glamorous, yes. beautiful, HELL NO!
but if you are into the weepy-needy-stunned-by banging-a-mallot-on-a-gong look, well then she's woman for you. aishwarya cannot compete with many of the actresses out there (she's no comparison to any of the older indian actresses), except for maybe liv tyler...whose face is equally annoying.

Posted by: mithu at August 5, 2004 08:51 AM

shakira has a lot of talent and she seems comfortable with herself, so that makes her appealing. in terms of natural beauty i think neither one of them are, especially aishwarya rai. her make-up is caked on to the point of looking ridiculous at times. and, actually, her smile is somewhat like britney spears's and sometimes like pamela anderson's. aishwarya does seem supremely confident about herself, and i guess that's what really attracts people...confidence.

Posted by: elspeth at August 5, 2004 09:03 AM

I think the problem here is that everyone is expressing their personal opinion. Sure, there's guys out there that like fat girls, midgets, excessive amounts of body hair...I just don't think that basing a discussion about which of two women is more beautiful on one's proclivities is very useful if an objective standard is to be obtained.

Instead, let's judge Shakira and Ash based on something more universal. How about the standards by which the world's highest paid models are measured by? Since modeling is primarily based on beauty and attractiveness, one can reasonably assume that the highest paid ones (e.g. Tyra Banks) are probably at the high end of beauty. (btw, Tyra waxes)

What if we imagined Shakira and Ash competing on Tyra's show, America's Next Top Model? The thought exercise would be rather short as Shakira would instantly be disqualified for her enormous hips with matching enormous thighs. She would also be disqualified for being 5'3". At least Ash would make it on the show, if not win (just as she won another major beauty competition, Miss World).

So, I really want people to stop dreaming when they say that Shakira is better because IT'S NOT EVEN CLOSE. Get off that crack rock and y'all take care of yourselves.

Posted by: wu-tang clan at August 5, 2004 06:22 PM

I think a lot of people are missing two vital facts about these Shakira and Aishwarya photos. Most of these the Shakira pics are from actual performances where she's in full-on rock star mode or from magazine articles where she's supposed to appear all super sultry. As for Aish, most of the pics are modeling shots for print advertising for products or her films. If you look at other models in print advertising, they're making similarly silly faces and have just as much, if not more, make-up caked on. Thanks for actually looking at her *face* in the photos or at the pictures with her natural smile; it goes to show just how deep some people are capable of looking. Also, I never said she was a great actress, especially compared to older Bollywood actresses. She does, however, annoy me a lot less than the vast majority of American actresses because it's the cheesiness of the scripts that's really at fault and the fact that she's forced to cry at least 3 times during each film, rather than just her being some vapid actress I can't stand.

Posted by: Kristina at August 6, 2004 07:58 AM

Dude, is someone actually using America's Top Model as a standard for hotness? Look who won last time.

Posted by: sean at August 10, 2004 02:21 AM

Aw, Kris, everyone seems to be bashing your lady. I feel a need to stand up for you, but am conflicted by the utter pointlessness of the discussion/argument in general. Can I put in an indifferent vote for Aishwarya based on a very enthusiastic vote for Kristina?

Posted by: Renee at August 11, 2004 07:51 AM

wtf, ash hotter than shakira?, hang on, im pissin my pants laffin at this. sure shakira has hips with a really teeny waist and ect, thats coz she is a woman and she does have boobs, just coz she doesnt push them up all the time like aishwarya who needs a padded push up bra, ash hasnt even reached puberty yet. ash has no hips, boobs, thighs or butt and her face looks squashed up, her nose is way to thin for her square face and her top half of her lip is bigger than the bottom and she is naturally dark skinned trying to disguise it and she needs to shave her sideburns. ash is a lanky skinny freak, so wat if she has blue eyes (hello, ever heard of contacts) the colour is always changing, shakira has the most perfect eyes in the world, the shape and they r so dark brown they look black (darker than ebony. as for talent, shakira writes her own songs, produces co writes music and ect,her lyrics r soo poetic esp the spanish ones,so wat if she is petite atleast she gets to wear heels unlike ash, and shakira is a better dancer esp to ojos asi coz she has the hips and she can move like a snake. ash is just a stupid girl who plays shitty so called innocent roles and she cant pull em off, bolly films aint even gud so thats that. as for catherine zeta jones, she is an extraordinary actress with an oscar and she is beautiful just like shakira. so u can keep ur skinny ash who does stupid classic indian dance that looks like martial arts. p.s shakira has an iq of 140. (btw, ash has a really awesome figure in that song, yeh kya ho raha hai). im still laffin.

Posted by: katia at September 5, 2004 01:09 PM

btw, ash has an annoying smile, in sum of her pics she looks like an old woman, and she doesnt have a really teeny waist, u know wat, the most beautiful bolly actresses r mahima, bipasha and rani. now ash hunney, u wont eva get a part in james bond so y dont u just go and get sum acting lessons and treat urself to a sandwich.

Posted by: katia at September 5, 2004 01:15 PM

hey, the guy who is doin all this, how do we know u didnt make those so called results up urself?, anyway, popular celebs r always overrated, hint hint ash. now i leave for gud. bye

Posted by: katia at September 5, 2004 01:17 PM

Uh... first, I must congratulate you on having the worst spelling and grammar of any comment I've ever received. Second, I'm glad that you've shared your opinion on this subject, but don't think it's really necessary to be so mean. Aish is just my favorite actress and some guy in my office and I had a friendly, mostly-joking debate going on about which one was hotter. Third, I'm a girl. Fouth, didn't you see where I said those numbers were from AskMen.com? I'm really glad to see that you have the time to get all over me about something so trivial, but don't have the time to either read what I actually wrote or to learn to write properly. I realize that this comment isn't the nicest thing I've ever written, but at least it's not as mean-spirited as yours (and I don't even know you so I don't care about being nice).

Posted by: Kristina at September 5, 2004 06:31 PM

does it really matter? NO. if u find aish prettier thats ur opinion. do u really need others opinion? if we all liked the same things the world wud be a boring place. i have noticed how u have a few fotos of shakira and lots of fotos of aish and like the other guy pointed out that most of the fotos of shakira wen she is performing. there r hotter pics of shakira, i know coz i have got them. i also think that u r taking sides for bollocking katia and not the other 2 who have called shakira a midget and huge hips ect. watch all of u cum back and say "thats coz she is", and if thats the case than is katia wrong abt aish?. anyway i think aish is pretty but shakira is beautiful. hey tell ur friend that shakira dvd live and off the record is out and he shud go and buy it, believe me, u see a diff side to shakira. she also plays the guitar, harmonica and drums. her songs tu and octa dia blew me away.r all of u americans btw?, its just u have such a super ficial image of how one should ( tall and skinny). others opinions dont matter to me coz shakira will always be the best. p.s most photos r airbrushed so keep that in mind. bye.

Posted by: sara at September 6, 2004 12:51 AM

well kristina, u r sumthing aint ya. wats the matter, did i touch a nerve?. check ur own spelling first than u can ask me to. im in a rush so i aint gonna dress wat i have to say in fancy words. how abt the guy with the cock suckin thing, u didnt say jack to him. ok so i admit i was being mean, but so r the rest of the ppl. well ash is ur fave actress and shakira is my fave artist and yes they r different. like sara said, it doesnt matter. if all the shakira fans in the world were to see this they wud flood this place. it seems like all of u only know shakira as a blond and not a red head or brunette. if thats true than u also dont know her older material. i prefer shakira as a brunette. btw kristina, i was mean coz ppl were slating shakira, just like u were mad wen u read my comment. anyway. bye

Posted by: katia at September 6, 2004 03:59 AM

kristina ur sooo typical, "aishwarya has blue eyes so she's prettier than catherine". ur just a typical person. ash aint got nothin on shakira, catherine, bipasha, mahima, yasmin bleeth i cud go on and on. i was going to be a bit nicer but after reading ur and wu twong mong ping pong comments ,i aint even gonna bother. cud u get ur coworker on here sometime. i'd love to chat to him.

Shakira and aishwarya are different ppl. We aint going to agree ok so lets just leave it at that. Holohan, dave, katia and wu tang clan, u r all so strange. u only name the so called flaws. Nobody is perfect ok. aishwarya and shakira, they r both human, i thought i wud remind u. Kristina, sara has a point abt the pics. Now can we all kiss and make up plz. Anyway, im sure the girls here are bored so lets talk abt hot hot hot guys.

Posted by: wu-tang clan at September 6, 2004 05:35 AM

and i suppose ur opinion is worthy? ur bloody sad.

Posted by: katia at September 6, 2004 06:11 AM

u know all i did was defend shakira coz all u ppl were practically saying that if u had hips and thighs, u aint beautiful. ok i admit i was bein harsh abt ash, u all then attacked me. yet no one even sed anything to ping pong mong whilst he was slaggin shakira off. then cums the part abt my spelling and grammer, well i didnt know this was sum kinda english test. wats all this with suck a dikk?, did i attak u both personally? no!!. oh and the aishwarya is prettier than catherine is just wrong. is that the best pic u cud find of catherine eh?. u wanna attak me, than fine, bring it on coz i aint running scared from wat seems to be a net gang. do u both call urself THE PINK LADIES?

Posted by: katia at September 6, 2004 06:20 AM

OMG. u ppl r mad. katia, ur comments about the users make me laugh. aishwarya isnt that bad ok, sure she has pointy nostrils and a bum chin but she is pretty. shakira should stop bleaching her hair and go back to being a raven black because she looks more pretty. Shakira has a really hot body, where did the sad comments (enormous hips and thighs) come from.i love aishwarya hair. i just want to sit and brush her hair and feed her grapes all day. shakira has the better eyes though. cant say which one is prettier. ill take them both. do u take cash or cheque?. could u please wrap them up. thanks.

Aishwarya looks like the cartoon betty boo,before u start on me, i find betty boo, attractive. The big eyes, black hair and small face. If only aishwarya had her cleavage.

Posted by: jojo at September 6, 2004 07:27 AM

It's Betty Boop you fucking moron...what primordial cesspool are you people coming from anyway?

Posted by: odb at September 6, 2004 07:43 AM

Sure I'm biased; this is my site and I wrote this article, I found and posted all those pictures. If you like Shakira so much, why don't you start your own page and make your own Shakira gallery with pictures of her that you like that prove your point over mine. This page reflects MY point of view about this subject because it's mine. I don't really care that you think Shakira is finer than Aishwarya; that's bound to happen because she is hot stuff. What I don't like is your attitude and your utterly ghetto, incompetent writing; no matter what you're saying it'll always make you sound dumber than you really are (if you are any smarter than you sound) and no one will respect you or what you have to say. There's nothing wrong with a little education. Also, I really don't like those "ping pong mong" comments because even if "wu-tang clan" (which is a rap group, in case you didn't know) was asian, it would be really wrong and offensive to say... also, I'm asian and I love "wu-tang clan" and respect his opinion a thousand times more than your ignorant one. Another great thing about this being my site that you should keep in mind is that I can choose to either keep what you write or delete it...

Posted by: Kristina at September 6, 2004 10:11 AM

Ok now ur sayin i'm dumb. Well was i the one that said aishwarya is the most beautiful woman in the whole world?, no. I assume that u have been all around the world and have met every single woman out there. Am i right?. i'm not familiar with wu tang clang coz i dont listen to rap music coz most rap is stupid and abt getting laid. I listen to real music ok. Kristina u dont know me ok so u can drop this whole crap abt education and respect ok. So the rules here are u can slate shakira but not aishwarya, hmm, i wish i knew that b4 i written all that.

Posted by: Katia at September 6, 2004 01:15 PM

I dont wanna argue with u anymore ok, i'll just accept the fact that ppl see shakira in a differnt light. Ok so u like aishwarya more than any1 else. Now cud u be a doll and get ur friend to cum online plz. see, i can be nice.

Posted by: katia at September 6, 2004 01:51 PM

I guess I did say you were dumb, but I don't think it's "dumb" to say Aish is the most beautiful woman in the world because people say stuff like that all the time; it's called hyperbole, and if you weren't so dumb maybe you'd learn to recognize it and not take things so literally and get all over people you don't even know for it. I'm glad that you think you're too good for rap and that you're better than me and all my friends; maybe you should just stop visiting here if we're not good enough for you... especially since I don't know you. If I knew what you meant by "slate" I could respond better to that last part, but like I've said before (and you obviously haven't read), I don't care that you have a different take on Aish and Shakira than me, I just don't like YOU and the WAY you've expressed your opinions here.

Posted by: Kristina at September 6, 2004 01:59 PM

I wrote that before I saw your 1:51pm comment... but I still don't feel any more friendly. I don't work with that guy anymore, but I was planning on showing him this string anyway. So we'll see what happens.

Posted by: Kristina at September 6, 2004 02:25 PM

Hmm... wots been goin on here then... I read the comments above & u know wot i find 'DUMB'?... the fact that people only comment on one person... its total hypocracy when u dnt shout abuse at a person who's swearing but u do at the person who makes sense... one person swore and didnt get a bolloking off any1, yet the other merely expressed her opinion but is then comfronted stupidly and pathetically!... this is an honest debate and evry1 is entitled 2 there own opinion... I havent seen Ms katia swearing and shouting the odds, she's just expressing her opinion, ok maybe some of you found her words a little harsh but so bloody what!!! Oh, and what do u mean by 'learn english first before u speak'... HELLO Ppl this is the 21st century!!! we have computers, we have cyber NOT evry1 is going to be writting like a professional doing a stupid database, we have short cuts nowadays!!!... so get with the program!... i'v heard of HYPERBOLE but have you ever heard of HYPOCRITE!
can u people honestly see hips, bums and thighs on Ms Rai???... all i see is a skinny freak...
Oh and i suggest u get more pictures of Shakira, cuz this isnt a healthy NOR a fair debate!

Real music is led zepplin, the beatles, the rolling stones, pink floyd, shakira, bond, guns and roses, red hot chili peppers, acdc, nirvana, aerosmith ect ect. ur such a dumb shit face. u say u dont know me yet u call me dumb, honestly, u have to read wat u say. i know ur wu tang clan in disguise. ur so bloody obvious. i dont care wat u say, u obviously dont know slang and yet u claim that u listen to rap music. u take everything way to serious. it says that ppl can express thier opinion, thats exactly wat i did. i didnt slate (diss) any person here. all i did was defend shakira. the way ur goin on abt it is as if i dissed u. so if i was u i wud stop being so damn melodramtic ok.

I am better than you because this is my site and I can have the last word. Actually, because all my friends are even better than me, I'm going to let them have the last word (email me and I'll post your comments... I hate to be such a comment-nazi, but it was only a matter a time before the power of having my own blog corrupted me):

Oh my God, what did you do to get on the list of "Sites Every Semi-Retarded Psycho Shakira Fan Should Visit"? I didn't understand why everyone was offering opinions when it was just friendly banter; I don't know what to make of these people who are so passionately (and yet grammtically lazly) fighting for the supremacy of Ms. Whenever, Wherever. This is almost as baffling as Gigli and much more annoying because you can't turn them off as easily. Oh, but, wait a minute--looks like you can.

Nyah nyah, Kristina as webmaster reigns supreme.

Also, once more for the Wu-Tang (and btw--hopefully they'll understand better if I shorten my phrases -- who doesn't know Wu-Tang? I'm betting maybe some idiot 12 year olds are behind the Shakira debacle...) go suck a dick.

Aish is still 1000x hot, almost off the charts, but lacks the sexuality that Shakira beams directly via satellite into my pants.
