Shakira Is a Runaway Bride in "Empire" Video

Shakira's 10th studio album drops today—read our complete album guide here—and she's kicking off her promotional week with the video for her rock ballad "Empire."

The visual kicks off with a demure Shakira playing a bride walking down the aisle before getting cold feet and fleeing into the countryside. The Latin star then turns into the "She Wolf" we all know and love, running barefoot through the countryside while lighting her wedding dress on fire.

While it doesn't co-star Rihanna like her last vid, every scene is loaded with hair flips, flashes of bare thighs and cleavage... i.e., Shakira playing off her best physical assets. No wonder she's the most liked person on Facebook.

And as per Gerard Pique's curious demand that Shakira "no longer do videos with men," there's no man candy in this music video, just a few random guys in the background.
