Shakira: ‘It’s good not to have a husband’

Female singer Shakira said she “is fine without a husband” when sharing about her life as a single mother, which is helping her find inspiration in her work.

In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, Shakira said raising her children alone and living far away from Barcelona helped her nurture her artistry. The Colombian singer said that when she was dating Gerard Pique, she struggled to find balance.

“Sometimes it’s like a love-hate relationship because every time I have to go to the studio to work, I fail. I feel like I’m neglecting my family. There are times when I’m really not having fun, you know.” I feel guilty, I feel torn apart,” the beauty confided.

But as her children grew older and returned to single life, Shakira believed that her singing career gradually flourished. She said: “Although now I face more challenges because I am responsible for taking care of the children, the two children still depend on their mother too much. And I am a single mother without a husband at home to help. But In some ways, not having a husband is good. I don’t know why it drags me down. Now I feel inspired to work, compose, and make music, something I didn’t feel before.”

In an interview with The Times last week, Shakira confessed that she had sacrificed her music career and stepped back to take care of the home so that Gerard Pique could comfortably strive for his football career.

Shakira will release her 12th album Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran (roughly translated: Women Don’t Cry Anymore) this weekend. The last time the two-child beauty released an album was 7 years ago. In the press release, Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran is considered a testament to “Shakira’s resilience, inner strength and the power of music to turn the most difficult experiences into precious moments”.

Shakira shared: “I reinvent myself every time I write a song. When I sing the lyrics, my tears turn into diamonds and vulnerability turns into strength.”

Shakira and Pique first met in 2010 when he appeared in the 2010 World Cup promotional music video Waka Waka (This Time for Africa). The pair, who have a 10-year age difference, confirmed their relationship in March 2011. In early 2013, they welcomed their first son, and two years later Shakira gave birth to their second child. The talented and beautiful couple were once in love with each other but had no intention of getting married. In the summer of 2022, they announced their separation to the regret of their fans. However, Spanish media said that Pique and Shakira had been having problems for a while, the reason being that the former Barca player cheated.

After breaking up, the Colombian female singer returned to music and had a series of viral songs mainly about her past failed love. Shakira does not have a boyfriend while her ex-lover Gerard Pique has publicly announced his new girlfriend Clara Chia Marti for more than a year now.

Born in 1987, Gerard Pique is considered one of the best central defenders of his generation. After 4 years with MU, Pique returned to his hometown to play for Barca until retiring at the end of last year. The 36-year-old former midfielder had a brilliant career both in the Catalan team and the national team. Meanwhile, Shakira is a famous Colombian singer, known as the Queen of Latin music with an outstanding career.
