June 20, 2005 03:34:28 GMT

The dispute involving Shakira and the United States' largest Latin retail music chain Ritmo Latino concerning her top-selling new album, "Fijacion Oral, Vol. 1," has been settled. Ritmo was at first upset that the album promotion schedule did not include an in-store appearance at any of the company's 42 stores.

Though, things have been settled and Shakira has on Thursday met her many fans in Mexico City, signed autographs and greeted the crowds who had waited hours to see her, braving rain and long lines. Also there were Shakira's posters given to fans who didn't get her autograph. "You don't know how much this means to me. I didn't expect to see so many of you here," the Colombian pop star told her fans.

In order to prevent something worse, city quickly removed paint scrawled on the 119th Street monument and officials were considering a variety of security measures, like surveillance cameras, a fence or sealing it with a graffiti-resistant coating.
