Shakira '90s Telenovela La Oasis | Video

Stop, Sit, and Watch a 17-Year-Old Shakira in a Telenovela!

We are throwing it all the way back to 1994 when an unknown 17-year-old named Shakira played Luisa María in El Oasis. The telenovela was a classic spin off of Romeo and Juliet with Shakira falling in love with the son of her father's enemy.

In the clip above, Shakira's telenovela dad is not having it after discovering her secret relationship. He not only grounds her, but arranges her marriage to another man (because that's what happens in telenovelas). The best part is all of the dramatic reactions Shakira has to literally everything that happens in the clip. Watch the video above and you will totally get what we mean.
