In an exclusive interview answering YouTube fans' questions, Shakira talks about her song being chosen as the official World Cup song instead of a tune by an African artist.
YouTube also fixed a flaw that let hackers create pop-up messages (including the false report that Canadian singer Justin Bieber had died) on videos to redirect them to adult sites.
Bieber's Twitter and website poll on which country he should tour next was also sabotaged by Web pranksters 4Chan to skew votes to send him to North Korea. Yesterday also saw Wikipedia and iTunes attacked by hackers, who appeared to choose the Fourth of July holiday in the U.S. to wreak havoc online.
