JOHANNESBURG (AP) -- Shakira's World Cup anthem is being kicked to the curb by South Africans. Some people were already a little sour over the fact that the Colombian star was asked to do the official anthem for the international soccer tournament. And so far, football fans don't like what they've heard from the song "Waka Waka." One describes it as "horrible" -- and is even demanding that the president of South Africa do something about the song. Shakira is supposed to sing the song before the World Cup final in July. She's one of several international stars invited to take part in the event. But some South Africans have asked why more local artists aren't in the mix. Other U.S. stars asked to participate include Alicia Keys and Black Eyed Peas.(PRNewsFoto/Sony Music Entertainment)
