Colombian pop star Shakira can understand why so many people adore U.S. leader Barack Obama - he made her feel like "the most important person in the world" upon their first meeting.
The Hips Don't Lie singer has encountered many world leaders but admits none of them made more of an impact on her than Obama - when they met at his inauguration.
She tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "I've met many politicians in my life, and they always seem a little distracted. But, with Obama, it was completely different.
"He gives every person his focused, undivided attention. We talked about Latin America, education. He also mentioned to me, 'I read somewhere that you were going to UCLA (Los Angeles university) to study.' Can you believe that?
"Where does he have space in his hard disk (for) this little piece of information about me?"
