Shakira was honored with the Video Vanguard Award this year and won Best Collaboration for "TQG" with Karol G. However, it was almost overshadowed by all the Colombian singer's unexpected interactions with Tiffany.

There's also this video where Tiffany repeatedly called out "Shakira, Shakira!" like Wyclef Jean did in the 2005 hit "Hips Don't Lie."

It seriously reminded me of Cara Delevingne's odd behavior toward Megan Thee Stallion at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards.

And, certainly, people called out Tiffany's behavior that night:

Tiffany was seriously off the chain at the VMAs — and not just with Shakira. She went ham when Rema and Selena Gomez accepted the Best Afrobeats award for "Calm Down."

She was also seen screaming while GloRilla presented an award:

And she was popping off during Doja Cat's "Attention" performance:

Now, Tiffany has responded to the reactions on X (formerly Twitter), writing: "This soooooo interesting to me. If you feel like I did to [sic] much, All of y'all better be buying @shakira new album!"

"This experience has Aloud [sic] me to realize how truly popular I am. I appreciate all of your opinions… Thank You 🙏 Shana Tova"

Shana Tova means "Happy New Year" in Hebrew, as Tiffany celebrates the high holiday, Rosh Hashana. After discovering her family's Jewish roots, she had her Bat Mitzvah on her 40th birthday and celebrates Shabbat dinner every Friday.

Tiffany later responded with another post addressing the viral moment. "When people make videos about me or talk about me good or bad," she began, "I just think, 'Thank you all for making me more famous and relevant.' I see it’s driving the enemy crazy 'cause they really want to be where I am, It will never happen."
