Many thought it was a sure thing that Colombian singer Shakira would soon say “I do” to fiancé Antonio de la Rúa. But the artist has denied that she plans to get hitched this year.

“No, there’s no wedding,” she told members of the press during a stop in Monterrey, Mexico, where she will end her Fijación Oral 2006-2007 world tour. The 30-year-old singer added that she won’t take a year off from work, just a few months to rest up.

Wedding rumors have long swirled around the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer, who started dating De la Rúa, 33, the son of former Argentinean president Fernando de la Rúa, seven years ago. “He’s (like winning) the lottery, the grand prize,” she said a few months ago about her beau, who she’s described as the man of her dreams.
