HITS DON'T LIE: Colombian crossover-pop diva and hip-shaker Shakira has a Latin pop style that sometimes crackles with the discordant, mournful melodies of her father's Lebanon. Though she's been crafting international hits since 1996, when she debuted with ``Pies Descalzos,'' crossover pop stardom wasn't hers until she delivered her first English-language punch with ``Whenever, Wherever'' off 2001's ``Laundry Service.'' She's been on fire ever since, despite the fact that 2005's ``Oral Fixation, Vol. 2'' was slow going until earlier this year. That's when Epic released the bonus track ``Hips Don't Lie'' -- a remake of an old song by Wyclef Jean, who has been supporting Shakira on tour. The pair performed their first Southland show Tuesday at Staples and will be back for a second sold-out show Friday at the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim.
