Shakira never disappoints with her music videos, does she?
Just one day after winning two Latin GRAMMYs for her song “La Bicicleta” with Carlos Vives, Shakira set the music world on fire with another great duet. Shakira and fellow Colombian pop star Maluma released their music video for “Chantaje” and it already has more than 45 million views on YouTube. This song is the perfect anthem for anybody who has that one person they just can’t shake, no matter how much they want to. Both Shakira and Maluma express their enjoyment of being masochists and how they just can’t let each other go. It is very much along the lines of her 2014 steamy hit “Can’t Remember To Forget You” featuring Rihanna. Looks like Shakira, once again, made gold and so kindly shared it all with the world.
In every Latino home, you will find the closet. Inside is all the junk your parents just can’t say goodbye to, even though no one has used them for years. And while some items have real sentimental value, others make you scratch your head, wondering, “why the hell are they saving that?” Like this…
Let’s open the door and see what you’ll probably find in your parent’s hoarding closet.

There’s that communion dress you wore once, several decades ago.
Why mom keeps it, no one knows. Anytime you have visita, you can bet your mother will put this dress on display and talk about how cute you were. Keep kleenex on hand, cause momma always has a meldown talkinga about this stuff.
That toilet paper cover your abuela gave the family as a gift.
Fashion trends come and go, and the hoarder closet is proof. Inside, you’ll find anything from bootcut jeans, peasant shirts, fanny packs, mini skirts, blazers with shoulder pads, velour track suits, and leather jackets with tassels. Basically, anything your parents believe might come back into fashion hangs out here waiting for a second chance… with a few holes.
Check the pockets of those clothes and you’ll find extinct candy.
The pockets of clothes in the hoarder closet are like mini-museums. You’ll find old lottery tickets, discontinued candy, pesos, old tissue, out of style glasses, pogs, old watches, acrylic nails, and lint. It’s really a trip down memory lane.
Once upon a time, your dad saw a commercial for workout gear that would change his life. Flash forward to today, and papa is yelling at the football game from his La-Z-Boy, and those life changing items are tucked away deep inside the hoarder closet.
That old family computer your dad refuses to throw out is in there too.
Again because your dad thinks his identity will be stolen if he inputs his information in any computer, you’ll find boxes of old family tax records. In another, your dad’s soccer uniform from 1994. Then there’s the box full of old love letters your mom refuses to throw away, even though they’re not from your father. The only thing you won’t find in these shoe boxes are actual shoes. Go figure.
And the most important part of a hoarder closet, the closet organizer.
Sadly, the closet organizer lasted only a few days before it collapsed and disappeared forever into the depths of all the junk your parents stored in there. Everyone knows it’s still in there, but no one wants to dig it out. Who knows what other horrible, forgotten items are waiting in there.
Of course, this is only what you’ll find in the hoarder closet. Don’t get us started on the attic…
