Latin music pop star SHAKIRA is in talks with LIVE NATION for a contract that will include touring, merchandising and recording, according to people familiar with the talks.
The COLUMBIAN-born songstress, whose 2006 hit "Hips Don't Lie" went #1, is expected to complete a multimillion-dollar deal with LIVE NATION before the end of the year, after months of talks.
The NEW YORK POST reported on TUESDAY that the so-called 360-degree deal could be worth up to $70 million, though one person close to the artist said she should be worth more based on her recent touring success.
