Shakira eyes duet with Pattinson

LONDON: Colombian pop star Shakira is eyeing a musical collaboration with Robert Pattinson - after falling in love with his vampire movie Twilight.

The singer was introduced to Twilight, which stars British hunk Pattinson as vampire Edward Cullen, after an executive at her record label noticed its themes are similar to those explored on her upcoming album, She Wolf.

She tells, "The president of my label said, 'Have you checked out Twilight? It's about wolves and vampires and things.' And I'm like, 'Ah, that's up my alley. I mean, where is it?' And I watched it and loved it."

And Shakira insists she'd love to duet with Pattinson, who played piano and recorded vocals for two songs on the Twilight soundtrack: "I've heard he's a great singer and a great musician. If those rumours are true - yeah, of course, why not?"
