FOX 411 Playlist: Shakira Named Person of the Year, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees Announced

411 Playlist: 'Waka Waka' singer honored by Latin Recording Academy; Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees announced


Her powerful voice, honest hips and philanthropy have made Shakira the 2011 Latin Recording Academy's "Person of the Year" and headliner of this week's 411 Playlist!

The Colombian superstar will be honored by the Latin Grammy Awards on November 9th with a dinner and concert, where fellow Latin stars and friends will be performing some of Shakira's greatest hits. A major portion of the proceeds will go to the singers Pies Descalzos Foundation, which builds schools for poverty stricken children. 

The "Waka Waka" singer is no stranger to the Latin Grammy Awards, having seven awards under her coin belt already and is also nominated for three more distinctions this year.

Shakira isn't the only one who should be celebrating as the nominees for the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have been announced. Guns N Roses, Heart, The Cure, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts are some of the hopefuls. Previous nominees like the Beastie Boys, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Donna Summer are hoping this is their year. The induction ceremony will be held in Cleveland on April 14th.

Speaking of rock and roll, Sebastian Bach stopped by and spoke with Fox 411 about his new album "Kicking and Screaming." The former Skid Row front-man says that he is looking "to give you more songs for your iPod." The album is currently available if you’d like to take Bach up on his offer.
