Here's why Shakira celebrated Thanksgiving by walking a turkey round the supermarket

As stars of TV, music and film celebrated Thanksgiving this year there were a few celebrities who decided to mark the occasion in an interesting way…

Here’s Shakira’s tweet.

No explanation needed, right? Wrong. Why is the Colombian singer of anthems such as Whenever, Wherever and Hips Don’t Lie walking a live turkey round a supermarket on a day when Americans were giving thanks.

The photo is certainly photoshopped because just a few days ago the singer tweeted the exact same picture but with a pig in the place of a turkey.

So the next question is, why is the Colombian singer of anthems such as Whenever, Wherever and Hips Don’t Lie walking a live PIG round a supermarket.

An easy answer, really. It’s all part of her latest music video and, as all fans of Genesis’ Land Of Confusion know, music videos need no explanation.

Moving on, here are some more celebrities giving thanks in bizarre fashion.
