Shakira

Latina superstar Shakira has praised British Prime Minster Gordon Brown for his plans to improve education in the developing world.

The 31-year-old singer and the leader held a telephone conference with World Bank president Robert Zoellick to speak about their support of the Global Campaign for Education (GCE), which aims to have every child in the world in school by 2015. And the star, who is also a UNICEF goodwill ambassador, was impressed with Brown’s intentions to achieve universal education .

She says, "I think he (Brown) is a man with wonderful intentions and who is also very pro-active and who has been working very hard for this issue of education.

"I applaud his work and applaud the fact that he is brave enough to talk to celebrities like me… I think we are all on the same boat trying to get to the same shore, and trying to provide education for all children in the world."

Shakira also denies she is being ‘used’ by Brown to boost his popularity in the U.K.

She says, "Absolutely not. I think he is a man with wonderful intentions and who is also very pro-active and who has been working very hard for this issue of education."
